Other places of interest in the area include the pretty villages of Porlock, Lynton and Lynmouth, the harbour town of Watchet, the West Somerset Steam Railway and National Trusts Knighthayes Court and the medieval village of Dunster with its fascinating castle.

Upon entering the beautiful single-storey property, you will be greeted by the spacious entrance hall, a useful space to hang coats and leave muddy shoes after a walk through the countryside. The light and spacious, open-plan lounge/diner features a cosy wood burner and Smart TV, so you can relax in the evening and enjoy your favourite programmes. From here there are also French doors that lead to the raised decking, where you can let the outside in on sunny days and enjoy the views. Leading from either the hallway or the lounge/diner you enter the well-equipped kitchen with electric Rangemaster oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine, a great space to prepare a meal. Back to the hallway you will find the two bedrooms, a king-size bedroom which enjoys countryside views and a twin. Completing the property is a contemporary bathroom with a shower over bath and WC.

Venturing outside from the kitchen there is a large covered porch perfect for taking off muddy wellies after a countryside walk or drying off your four-legged friend. A gradual sloping pathway down takes you straight into the enclosed lawn garden, a perfect space for children to play with a raised decked area tucked away and private.  The enclosed decked terrace can be accessed from the lounge/diner and garden and is a perfect place to relax and enjoy a spot of al fresco dining.

Lovely, comfortable and well equipped bungalow. Secure garden for dogs unless you really have an escapologist!

Zephyrs is a very comfortable cottage, in a lovely location. So nice to wake up to amazing views and peace and quiet apart from birdsong and lambs bleating. Its a welcome change for caretaker to come to the cottage and explain how things work and tells us some of the local walks.

Had a super stay at Zephyrs. It exceeded expectations for location, situated in a hamlet at the top of the hill, with beautiful views. So peaceful!

A lovely cottage in a stunning part of Exmoor. Lots of beautiful walks, but very hilly if your mobility is limited. Wildlife everywhere and the dawn chorus is very melodic with birds, sheep and cattle!!
