SITUATION: Luccombe is a pretty village approximately one mile south of the A39 between Porlock and Minehead and nestles at the foot of Dunkery Beacon, the Exmoor National Park’s highest hill. The village itself benefits from a village hall and a church. Minehead is one of West Somerset’s well known and best loved coastal resorts, nestling as it does between the slopes of Exmoor and the sea. The town offers a wide range of attractions, including the beach, promenade, harbour, beautiful gardens and colourful tree lined avenue with an array of shops and services. Dominated by the wooded slopes of North Hill, the whole area is renowned for its outstanding natural beauty and there are superb walks over open moor land, through woodland and along the coast.
