Dovery Manor Museum is a not-for-profit Charitable organisation whose aim is to provide a fantastic insight to the history of this lovely Exmoor village and nearby communities.


We do not have paid staff - what you get is the result of an enthusiastic group of volunteers who give their time freely, enabling your great experience of this place.


Sadly the rent & services still have to be paid, so we would be most grateful -  if you enjoyed your visit -  if you could manage a donation towards the ongoing costs of the museum. If you are a UK taxpayer, please consider using the Gift Aid scheme to make your gift even more valuable.
