Winsford, often regarded as southern Exmoor's prettiest village, has many whitewashed and thatched buildings dating from the 16th century onwards. The village stands on the west bank of the river Exe opposite a stretch of woodland. The village has the benefit of several small woods about 1/2 mile in each direction and the mass of heath-covered Winsford Hill to the south-west.
There are several attractive bridges, at least two with medieval origins, and a functioning ford on the road to Withypool.
A tea garden and pub cater for visitors and there are other local businesses. Artists have been drawn here for over a century. There is a very attractive church on the western side of the village.
