The cottage is bright and welcoming offering superb views from the patio area. Located only 1 mile from the Devon/Somerset border and 5 minutes from J25 of M5 it is conveniently accessible to Exmoor, Dartmoor, North & South coasts, National Trust properties and theme parks. Walkers can enjoy opportunities to explore the area on foot with footpaths and lanes leading from the cottage linking into nearby farmland, forests & wildlife reserves. Idyllically situated yet aptly described by one visitor as being 'in the middle of everywhere' it provides a restful haven to return to after a day out.

Out of the lounge, the stairs lead up to the first floor where you will find the two bedrooms. The spacious and light double bedroom has a flatscreen TV and an en-suite bathroom with shower over the bath. Next is the spacious twin bedroom, with cot if needed. This room also benefits from a flatscreen TV.
