Your Destination

Set in the heart of the historic market town of South Molton, Ashley House Bed and Breakfast offers guests luxury accommodation whilst being perfectly situated to explore the beautiful countryside of North Devon and Mid Devon, Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks and the beautiful North Devon coastline.

South Molton still flourishes as a market town with a population of 5000. Its pretty square is surrounded by small local shops, tea rooms and restaurants. The main market day is Thursdays with an extra pannier market on Saturdays. Here you will find a wide choice of stalls, from local produce to antiques and handmade crafts.

Known as 'The Gateway to Exmoor', South Molton is the perfect base from which to explore Exmoor National Park. There are many beautiful places to discover in Exmoor including Dulverton, the setting of part of Blackmore's classic novel 'Lorna Doone'. The castle at Dunster stands guard over the town's medieval buildings and the bustling village, and port of Porlock provides stunning views whilst climbing the breathtaking coastal route.

At the very heart of Exmoor is the historic and remarkable Tarr Steps, a medieval clapper bridge over the river Barle which spans the fifty-five foot river in seventeen spans of flat stone. Close by are burial mounds of Bronze Age men from 5,000 years ago.

Your Hotel

Ashley House was a former gentlemen's residence which was built in 1879. It is a Victorian villa built of Marland brick under a slate roof. Ashley House and its neighbour were both originally bought by two brothers, John Tucker Widgery and Samuel Widgery after they had contested the will of the famous artist J.M.W Turner, whose sister had married their uncle.
