PERITON PARK was originally a Victorian Country Estate. It was still occupied as a family house until redeveloped in the late eighties. The main house (not the subject of this Web Site) remains a private home. The stone built Stables and Coach House were converted into cottage style self catering holiday accommodation. A new stable block and outdoor swimming pool were built and
PERITON PARK COURT opened for business providing high quality holiday accommodation with superb access to the Exmoor National Park and the North devon and Somerset Coast. A new outdoor riding arena was opened in 2005 which has added riding tuition to the range of services available at Periton Park. The riding stables is now a livery Yard and training centre. It does cater for Holiday Livery and provides BHS qualified instruction on your Horse in our out door all weather arena..
Situated to the South West of Minehead, PERITON PARK COURT is approached along a third of a mile of private drive and has 30 acres of private grounds backing onto EXMOOR NATIONAL PARK.

Although perfectly secluded at Periton Park, we are just 1.5 miles from the centre of Minehead where all the usual seaside amenities are available. The Town has a wide choice of restaurants and the surrounding area has an abundance of country pubs, each with it's own style and atmosphere.

Periton Park Court nestles at the edge of legendary Exmoor where the contrasting scenery offers space, peace and beauty, where the landscape changes from deep wooded valleys to heather capped moor lands and patchwork farmlands before plunging dramatically into the sea from rocky hog's back cliffs.

On Exmoor, red deer and ponies run free whilst buzzards soar majestically in the sky. Badgers, foxes, rabbits, otters and over 240 species of birds are just a few examples of the wildlife to be seen from 600 miles of public footpaths and bridle ways. The West Somerset and Devon coast offers magnificent seascapes ranging from the sandy beaches at Blue Anchor and Dunster to the picturesque Porlock Harbour and Lynmouth. Red deer can often be seen grazing at Periton Park and for the patient visitors, badgers and foxes can also be viewed living within our boundies.

Dunster, a well preserved medieval English village, has a splendid castle, yarn market and working mill and is at the eastern end of the range of hills to the south of Periton. Regular ramblers will enjoy a splendid walk from Periton to Dunster which afford wonderful views across the Bristol Channel into Wales and south across Exmoor to Dunkery beacon, the highest point on Exmoor.

Superb gardens can be viewed at Knightshayes and Arlington Court. Some of the prettiest villages in England are at Winsford, Selworthy, Luccombe and Allerford.

Most country pursuits are available. For the energetic there are challenging mountain bike tracks in the woods just behind Periton and any beautiful and unspoiled walks both direct from Periton and within a short drive. Minehead offers a fleet of sea fishing boats, a links Golf Club, and Tennis courts. Minehead is the terminus for the West Somerset Steam Railway (the longest heritage railway in Britain) and one of the ports of call for the Paddle Steamer Waverley and SS Balmoral. Also available in the local area is coarse fishing in rivers and lakes, rough and driven shooting. For those keen on walking, in season the National Park Rangers conduct guided walks across the moor.
