Wisteria Cottage is a single-storey stone-built cottage, with a large enclosed garden, in the quiet and peaceful village of Challacombe, within the beautiful Exmoor National Park. The bright and spacious living room has a cosy log-burning stove, a 32" Freeview TV, and an impressive tri-fold door that leads to a decking and a large private enclosed garden with a picnic table. There is a well-equipped kitchen/dining room, a generous king-size double bedroom (which can be made into a twin) and a shower-room with a large shower cubicle, hand-basin & WC. Free WiFi.
The beautiful wildlife grounds cover nearly three acres and there are several wild-flower meadows, a wildlife pond, many species of trees and shrubs, loads of birds and butterflies, and a delightful walk up and around Humphrey's Hill with lovely views of Exmoor.
The Cottage and grounds are child and dog friendly, a cot, high chair and fire guard can be provided (if required) and within the grounds is a large children's play area comprising two towers linked with a bridge, a swing, slide, climbing board, climbing net, fireman's pole, ladder, periscope and driving wheel. Beside the play area is a sheltered arbour seat with lovely views for the grown-ups.
Just two minutes walk from Wisteria cottage are The Black Venus Inn which serves award-winning food and real ales; and Challacombe Stores and Post Office, where you can buy a delicious cream tea and home-made cakes. There are amazing walks from the village in every direction and within 5 miles is a charming reservoir, Wistlandpound, with trout fishing and an excellent circular walk.
The village of Challacombe is very friendly towards visitors, and in an ideal central location from which to explore the heart of Exmoor, the sandy beaches of Woolacombe and Croyde, and the rocky coves of the North Devon & Somerset coast.
Wisteria Cottage is one of five holiday cottages at Exmoor Cottage Holidays and has recently been converted from a farm building (Town Tenement Farm) and is fully insulated and double-glazed. Wisteria Cottage is all on one level, ideal for those who may have difficulty with stairs. Dogs are welcome. John and Melanie look forward to welcoming you to Exmoor.
