Winsford is one of the prettiest villages in the Exmoor National Park. Deer and wild ponies roam the moor in the surrounding hills. Many birds live along the River Exe which winds through the village (a neighbour has counted forty-one species). On clear nights you can see a world of stars; Exmoor National Park has been designated England's first Dark-Sky-Reserve.
Winsford has a village green, thatched cottages, and the famous Royal Oak Inn, dating from the 12th century (open for lunch and dinner). There's a village shop/post office, lovely tea room and tennis courts beside the cricket pitch.
Winsford is 6 miles from Dulverton, the nearest shopping town and 14 miles from Minehead and the sea. It's an ideal place for exploring Exmoor.
