A peaceful converted barn within the beautiful Exmoor National Park and just a few miles from the coast.

Approached over a small bridge, this property lies in a peaceful village north of Dunster. It’s surrounded by breath-taking scenery and wildlife, making it a haven for keen walkers. The beaches at Dunster, Blue Anchor Bay and Minehead are within a few miles of the cottage, with Minehead also offering a wide choice of shops as well as Butlin’s at Somerset World. Lace up your walking boots and make the hour journey to the medieval town of Dunster (or it’s a 10 minute drive) and see the National Trust Dunster Castle. Other attractions nearby include the Valley of the Rocks and the West Somerset Steam Railway, while Lynton and Lynmouth with its water-powered cliff railway are also within easy reach. With exposed bricks and a grand woodburner, the lounge area is the perfect place to unwind and soak up the country atmosphere. Perhaps curl up on the sofa with the latest best-seller, or switch on the TV or watch a DVD. The kitchen/diner is well-equipped for you to cook up a storm should you decide on a night in, with an electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge/freezer, as well as a dishwasher and washer/dryer. Also on the ground floor is a WC. Heading upstairs you’ll find the property’s two bedrooms - one king-size and one twin - as well as a bathroom with a roll-top bath, separate shower and WC. Outside is an enclosed garden, with gated shared access across the rear path. Take a seat on the garden furniture and take in the view, or perhaps dine alfresco - there’s even a BBQ for you to enjoy. The property has roadside parking.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

This is a fantastic cottage, with everything you could possibly need. It's extremely comfortable, functional and well-equipt, with great walks straight from the door and access to all Exmoor has to offer. We couldn't have been more happy with this holiday, which worked so well for our family.

Good location for exploring Somerset coast. All mod cons in kitchen. Spacious for a couple. Be aware if not a dog owner, that dogs can stay here and dog hairs in rugs, cushions etc.
