From the Owner

Welcome to New Mill Farm, a 100 acre working Exmoor sheep farm situated in its own secluded sheltered Exmoor Valley with a brown trout stream and free fishing available for our guests. The farm is approached by a private drive directly from the main A39 coast road. Our location is perfect for all, with plenty of open space. For the more energetic, the farm has it's own ABRS approved riding stables and has access to footpaths, one leading up to the Moor and in the other direction down to the coast. The local bus stops at the top of the drive for those who would like to leave their car behind. We have ample car parking.
