Cottage
This 200-year-old detached cottage has the best of both Worlds! Not only is it within the stunning countryside of the Exmoor National Park but it is just a short stroll along the river walk to Dulverton with its country pubs, quality restaurants and shops. The location is perfect for exploring the varied moors, combes and coasts, fabulous walks or enjoying the wildlife & just having a relaxing holiday. Roomy accommodation and quirky charm are in abundance throughout this characterful stone Cottage which was formerly a Coach House for the nearby country house.

Not only is it within the stunning countryside of the Exmoor National Park but it is just a short stroll along the river walk to Dulverton with its country pubs, quality restaurants and shops. The location is perfect for exploring the varied moors, combes and coasts, fabulous walks or enjoying the wildlife & just having a relaxing holiday. Roomy accommodation and quirky charm are in abundance throughout this characterful stone Cottage which was formerly a Coach House for the nearby country house. Approaching from the car parking area via the Jasmin arch gate, you arrive at the French doors which open directly from the dining area onto the small well-tended cottage garden. The modern, very well-equipped kitchen/diner has everything you could need including a decent size fridge/freezer, an electric cooker with halogen hob, microwave & washer/drying machine. The spacious beamed sitting room is furnished to a high standard in a traditional style with a leather chesterfield suite (sofa bed) all centered around the large fireplace with a cosy feature log burner. The entire cottage is heated by energy-efficient electric heaters providing an ambient background temperature. On both sides of the fire are stained glass windows, which look stunning in the afternoon sun. Also on the ground floor is a generously proportioned shower/WC too. The light and airy upstairs bedroom provides a lovely sanctuary promising a restful night’s sleep, helped by the standard size double luxury pocket sprung bed plus there is the added benefit of an ensuite bathroom. The Coach House is ideal for couples wanting a quiet getaway, but the accommodation can be flexible to sleep up to 4 people by arrangement with a range baby equipment also available. Dogs: Perhaps unsurprisingly, given the fabulous walking opportunities Exmoor offers, it is a paradise for our beloved K9’s and we welcome up to 2 well-behaved dogs although we do ask you to check with us first, please. Everything is prepared for your arrival including a high standard of cleaning, freshly laundered quality white cotton bed linen & towels. Electricity, heating as necessary & supply of logs included. Facilities include: Wi-Fi, 2 flat-screen TVs, phone (incoming calls only), DVD & CD player, library of books, CDs & DVD’s + games. Maps, details of walks & brochures of places to visit The kitchen has ample cupboards, microwave, electric cooker and hob, extractor fan, fridge freezer, auto washer/dryer, a good selection of kitchen utensils & china, tea towels etc. There are wooden patio chairs & table available to make the most of the good weather.. The bedroom has quality linen, throws & all season’s duvet, ample wardrobe space, remote TV, hairdryer, single sofa bed & travel cot available. Own off-road private parking bay for one vehicle. Please note that this is a little restrictive especially for 4x4 vehicles although doable, so careful parking required. There is alternative parking in the village if required. More

Visited the cottage again and think all the improvements are great and make the cottage even more "cosy". Like the new shower and double glazing. It is in a very convenient position and so close to many local walks. Very clean and tidy. Looking forward...More

About the neighbourhood
Dulverton is situated in the Barle Valley and is known as the gateway to the Exmoor National Park. Dulverton is a small thriving town - the emphasis being on the small! There is an interesting array of independent shops (including a Co-op which stays open late), tea rooms, pubs, a chippy and really quality restaurants. If you are bringing your well-behaved dog on holiday with you, you will be surprised at the number of establishments where our hairy friends are welcomed. I love the fact that there is just a short walk along the road then the remainder of the 5-minute walk to Dulverton is a pathway following the river bank. Exmoor is one of the lesser-known National Parks yet has incredibly varied scenery & places of interest.
Getting around
Mainline trains to Tiverton, Taunton, Barnstaple & Exeter. Buses are available. Walking & cycling are great ways to explore.
