Hello and welcome to our www.bromptonregis.community web-site which provides an online source of information about our village and the community that lives here.
The village is in a quiet location on the eastern side of Exmoor National Park with a community of about 250 people made up of well established farming and rural families and those that have moved here to work, retire or to run their own business. It is a very friendly village and its relative remoteness from modern-day facilities and services* helps to give it a degree of resilience and self-sufficiency that adds to its charm.
We hope that this website provides a much better understanding of its history and what it can offer to the welcoming visitor as well as provide some useful information to those that live here.
Where are we?
Brompton Regis is located in Exmoor National Park on the edge of the Brendon Hills. It nestles peacefully between Haddon Hill to its south and Wimbleball Lake to its east. More >>
As well as The George Inn, there are many welcoming B&Bs and holiday cottages in and around the village available for the discerning visitor - and many of them welcome dogs as well. More >>
We are very well placed for visitors to appreciate the beautiful scenery and attractions of Exmoor National Park - a great place for ramblers and horse riders. Also, its close proximity to Wimbleball Lake makes it very popular with anglers and sailing enthusiasts from all over the UK. More >>
The Church is in a splendid situation in the centre of the village. The main door in the south porch has a superb view of Haddon Hill and the surrounding hills. It consisted, at first, of a chancel, nave and tower, built 1200-1220 in the decorated style.
Brompton Regis Village Hall is a community building in the centre of the village and is managed by a voluntary committee as a charitable trust. More >>
*Note - However, it does have a broadband link!

The village shop is established at one end of the village hall and has seen some major improvements owing to grants that have been awarded from a number of sources. It provides a great community focal point and is consolidating its position as a viable business More >>
There are records of a settlement here going back to the Domesday Book when it was known as the King’s Manor of Brunetone.
