This lovely property on the fringe of Exmoor is perfect for couples seeking peace and privacy in a beautiful country setting. The pretty town of Bampton is 3 miles away, with a good range of shops, pubs and restaurants. From here it is less than 3 miles to the glorious Exmoor National Park, with its wild ponies, wooded valleys and rushing rivers. Discover more by visiting the National Park Centre in the village of Dulverton (7 miles) to find advice and information on all this special landscape has to offer, from wonderful walks to pony-trekking. Exmoor is a designated International Dark Sky Reserve, so look up to see stars shining more brightly on cloudless nights. A trip to Knightshayes Court (7 miles) is a great day out. This spectacular 19th-century house, owned by the National Trust, is full of quirks and curiosities and set in acres of glorious gardens and parkland.

Guests reach the property down a private driveway and enter the open-plan living/diner/kitchen space through glazed doors. These are set into large windows, with skylights in the vaulted ceiling, combining to create a light-filled interior. A comfortable leather sofa with Smart TV, a contemporary kitchen and dining table make this a lovely room for relaxing. A spacious king-size bedroom and en-suite with a walk-in shower room and WC completes the picture of a charming rural retreat.

Outside is a private garden with a lawn and an attractive gravel patio overlooking the

surrounding countryside with stylish wooden furniture. The Jacuzzi spa pool is in a summerhouse, where you can admire the lovely views while enjoying a luxurious soak.

Excellent location and the views are amazing. Lovely to be able to look out across the hills whilst relaxing in the hot tub. Property well equipped and very comfortable, although it would be helpful to have a few more mugs and glass tumblers. Wi-Fi a little hit and miss but to be expected given the location of the property.

We loved Crows Nest, its a beautiful cottage, well equipped and the hot tub is excellent! All you can hear in the mornings are birds singing, pure bliss. Fantastic garden and views, we even managed to sit out in October. Great kitchen to cook meals as it had everything you needed, we would certainly return.
