Pictures of Luxborough
Luxborough is a beautiful valley village set quietly within the shelter of the Brendon Hills at the Somerset edge of the Exmoor National Park.
The village occupies a spacious landscape with attractive properties found along leafy, wild-flower filled lanes. It is a rural community with a history stretching back to the Doomsday Book. The ancient 12th-century parish church dedicated to St. Mary was the subject of much restoration and alteration in the 19th-century. None-the-less, it is a lovely church to visit, and has fortunately managed to retain church treasures from the past. Surrounding the church is a grassed tree lined churchyard, this shows several ancient graves and tombstones.
Luxborough is best explored on foot when apart from the church and pretty cottages, visitors are likely to come across the Royal Oak Inn. This is a traditional Exmoor pub with a warm, lively atmosphere and typical moorland charm.
The village can be found within easy reach of any of the delightful coastal resorts between Minehead and Watchet. It is close to Dunster with its castle and fine Butter Cross, and to the delights of the wild heather moors of Exmoor where you can see Grouse, Pheasant, Red Deer, Ponies and Buzzards.
