Wootton Courtenay is a delightful village sitting in a pretty vale at the foot of Dunkery and Grabbist hills. Protected from the elements by these two impressive hills, Wootton Courtenay enjoys a warm micro-climate making it a very desirable location on Exmoor. This village is a fantastic spot for walking with numerous trails and marked paths running in all directions, including the Macmillian Way which passed right though the village
In the Domesday Book, Wootton Courtenay was simply recorded as Otone, meaning settlement by the wood. Courtenay was added to the village name in the 13th century when the Courtenay family became owners of the manor there.
The parish church at Wootton Courtney, dedicated to All Saints, was built between the 13th and 15th centuries and has since been designated by English Heritage as a Grade I listed building. The church features an unusual gabled bell tower.
The village boasts a well-appointed village shop which stocks you day-today needs and high quality local produce.
