The Venue

The first Taste Exmoor Food & Drink Festival is hosted by the National Trust Holnicote Estate just off the A39 between Minehead and Porlock, opposite the turn-off to Selworthy.

You will find catering stalls, producers, traders, and entertainment across the Estate’s HQ – be prepared for walled gardens, barns, and the most stunning views towards Dunkery Beacon.

Holnicote Estate makes up 12,000 acres of Exmoor National Park and is a contrasting landscape with everything from wild, rugged moorland and shingle beaches to ancient woodland and charming thatched villages.

A fantastic place for walking, horse riding and cycling,¬†Holnicote has 150 miles of footpaths and bridleways to explore. Walk up to Dunkery Beacon, Somerset’s highest point and a spectacular spot for stargazing, or take a more leisurely stroll and enjoy a picnic or BBQ at Bossington.

Red deer, Exmoor ponies, bats and the rare heath fritillary butterfly along with an awesome array of lichens and mosses make Holnicote a unique and very special place to visit.
