Lyn Valley author, Simon Dawson, has developed a devoted following for his books, which share his comic observations and quirky stories about living off the grid sustainability at the Exmoor smallholding he shares with his wife Debbie.
We visit Exmoor artist, Melody Hawtin, in Porlock. Melody sees Exmoor’s colours unlike any other local artist.
She accentuates each hue to create a vibrant and brilliant representation of the moor. Melody can teach you how to paint, too! She hosts frequent courses at her studio at The Tannery, in the centre of the village. Soon, Melody will promote Exmoor in Northern Ireland, when her paintings are displayed at a major exhibition in Belfast.
Lynton Cinema was packed over a weekend in January as locals caught a glimpse of Ken Blakey’s animated movie ‘Louisa – An Amazing Adventure’.
Author Tracey Gemmell will soon leave the cold winters of Wisconsin for the warmer climes of West Somerset. British-born Tracey has a yearning for Exmoor, which has grown stronger with each passing year. Porlock is pulling her across the ‘Pond’.
