About the location


Dulverton 4 miles; Tiverton 13 miles.

The village of East Anstey lies in the heart of beautiful unspoilt countryside, four miles from the picturesque market town of Dulverton. Known as the gateway to Exmoor, Dulverton offers the River Barle, which flows under a Grade I listed, 3000 year old stone clapper bridge. The town also boasts pretty buildings and medieval winding streets, along with a wealth of award winning restaurants and pubs, quality gift shops and tea rooms. The spectacular North Devon coast is within driving distance with the picturesque villages of Lynton and Lynmouth well worth visiting. Spend a day at the wonderful sandy beaches of Croyde Bay, Woolacombe and Saunton Sands, all of which provide fabulous opportunities for surfing. East Anstey is an ideal base to explore the magnificent rolling landscapes of Exmoor and the dramatic North Devon coastline.
