This former piggery has been converted with exceptional attention to detail and is the perfect bolthole for those who want to get away from it all, with beautiful countryside views from the seating area. Peacefully situated in the village of Cutcombe, in Exmoor National Park, this is the perfect location for those wishing to walk or cycle in this awe-inspiring landscape. The village of Wheddon Cross (0.5 miles) is home to a post office, garage/shop and a pub. The pretty village of Porlock and the coastal town of Minehead are both 8 miles away. The medieval village of Dunster (6 miles) with its National Trust castle towering above it is a must-see.

Enter this stylishly decorated single-storey annexe into a hallway which is a great place to hang clothes and store coats and boots. From here enter a light and airy open-plan studio space which enjoys countryside views. Find a comfortable seating area with a Smart TV, a dining area and French doors opening onto the terrace. The sleeping area has a king-size bed so you can sleep tight after a day out exploring. Head back into the hall and into a contemporary and well-equipped kitchen. A shower room completes this immaculate accommodation.

We found the cottage to be both charming and practical. Having a seperate well equiped kitchen was a bonus. The cottage was spotlessly clean and well organised so. e.g there was a place for waste and recycling. We particularly enjoyed having our meals outside surrounded by the pretty garden and beautiful countryside. Having a shop attached to the gRead morearage was very useful. Trevor and Jill were prefect host and there when we needed information. We very much hope to return again before too long. Hide

A lovely, well appointed, cosy and comfortable space to stay in. Beautiful views of Exmoor and located in a quiet hamlet with a shop and pub a short walk away in Wheddon Cross.

We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our stay here. The studio apartment had everything that we could wish for, it is attractively and stylishly decorated, very well equipped and in excellent condition; the location is ideal - close enough to the moors to walk to Dunkery Beacon yet with easy road access to the coast at Dunster, Porlock and Lynton/Read moreLynmouth.
