How excellent is this? The outdoorsy accommodation at Exford Hostel lets guests indulge their fondness of outdoor hols but have a little extra luxury too: site guests have access to all the facilities in the hostel including its comfy lounge, self-catering kitchen and dining room, washing machine and drying room. (And, as you'll presumably know everyone in your outdoor accommodation rather than being in with strangers in a dorm, you can feel free to kick them when they snore.)
The site part is all quite handsome (have a squint at the site pics), tucked away in the grounds of the hostel, which in turn is in the centre of Exford village – and it's all slap bang in the centre of Exmoor National Park. The scenic Somerset coast is about six miles away.
As it's Exmoor, there are of course many most excellent range of activities to try nearby: the Exford Hostel team can arrange horse riding, photography tuition, fly-fishing lessons, coasteering, Exmoor safaris and clay pigeon shooting if you let them know between booking and arrival what you might fancy.
