Welcome to Mornacott
A stunning farming estate in the heart of North Devon
Nestled on the edge of Exmoor, Mornacott exudes a tranquil calm that refreshes the spirit of all who visit. The plummeting valleys, ancient droveway, rushing streams and the rugged River Yeo all contribute to create a delicate rural infrastructure which captivates the soul.
