Attractive cottage situated on the owner’s farmland with resident chickens and pigs, surrounded by idyllic woodlands, and within a short drive of Exmoor National Park.

This property enjoys a wonderfully tranquil rural location, within twenty-four acres of land in the scenic woodland of the Exe Valley. The historic charter town of Bampton is just three miles away, and offers a range of pubs, bistros, and shops, as well as the interesting Norman motte, which visitors can climb to enjoy views over the town and the surrounding area. Active types will enjoy the fact that Exmoor National Park is just six miles from the property, offering miles of scenic walking routes and cycle paths, which stretch into neighbouring Somerset and down to the coast. For those in search of beaches, there are a number of wonderful sandy beaches less than an hour’s drive away, including those in Ilfracombe, Croyde, and Minehead.

Double doors from the patio area open straight into the spacious and welcoming lounge/kitchen/diner of this eco-friendly property. The property is served by solar panels, as well as the private log boiler which provides lovely hot water with minimal environmental impact. The living area is heated by a wood burner which sits in the corner of the room, where comfortable sofas provide a relaxing place to cosy up and enjoy the TV/DVD, and radio. The kitchen area, which is set off to the rear of the room, is equipped with an oven, hob, fridge, dishwasher, and washing machine. The property has one bedroom: a restful room with a king-size bed, next to which is the shower room with its large shower cubicle and WC. Enjoy a welcome arrival hamper of local produce.

Outside, there is a small seating area to the front of the property which has attractive valley views, whilst to the rear of the property is an enclosed garden with a lawn seating area. Guests are also able to explore the farm’s twenty-four acres of land, and pay a visit to the resident pigs and chickens. There is ample off-road parking available.

Lovely cosy comfortable warm cottage with a nice location. For our 2 dogs (lurchers) it was perfect as we were able to use the owners completely fenced in large field, and a dog friendly pub a few minutes drive away. Fully recommend and would return. The Ganges Indian restaurant in Tiverton delivered for a small fee even though its around 20 minuteRead mores away and the Chip shop in Bampton is good quality and a short drive away. Hide

The cottage had everything you would need, it was cosey, peaceful, and comfortable. The drive up to the cottage was a little daunting, however, after doing the drive a couple of times it was not a problem. There was a welcome pack of bread, eggs and milk which was a very nice touch.

Very enjoyable and peaceful stay in late August. Not the easiest place to get to, but this is part of the appeal, being well away from the main roads and down a narrow steep track from a nearby lane.
