The cottage is situated beside a quiet country lane with views across to the fields opposite. There are two private gardens for the guests' sole use, one is directly opposite the cottage and is accessed via a footbridge, the garden is enclosed and picnic benches are provided. The second 'secret' garden is a short distance along the lane (approx 25 metres from the front door) and has access to the river which children and dogs love cooling off in the summer months. Again, seating is provided in this garden also. From the cottage you can walk to Snowdrop Valley, a "carpet of snowdrops" which bloom in February/March each year. From here, head up onto the moors and Dunkery Beacon, the highest point on Exmoor, on a clear day you can look across the Bristol Channel to Wales, up the coast towards North Somerset, and in the other direction you can see right down into Dartmoor - stunning 360 degree views of Exmoor!
Timberscombe is a small yet charming village, approx 1.5 miles away, which has a pub (serving food and is dog-friendly), church and post office. Dunster (3 miles further on) is a beautiful medieval village, boasting its own Castle, Yarn Market, Tithe Barn and a range of other hi...storical buildings that we are well worth exploring. Exmoor's scenery can be quite varied and is certainly breathtaking, from open expanses of moorland, to quiet wooded valleys, family-friendly beaches to secluded bays, trickling streams and fast flowing rivers, a majestic coastline with the highest sea cliffs in the country, plus an abundance of wildlife including herds of wild red deer and Exmoor ponies and some 600 miles of way-marked walks.
Full arrival information will be sent once the booking has been paid in full.
