We purchased the cottage in 2009 and since then we have redecorated and refurbished throughout..We have also installed a new kitchen,shower room and double glazed windows.
The large double bedroom contains a Victorian style bed with a very comfortable memory foam mattress.
The sitting room is very cosy, with a stone fireplace, a woodburning stove and a window seat which overlooks the village green.
The new kitchen is equipped with everything needed for a self catering holiday. There is also a separate dining room .

Exmoor is a beautiful place to visit. It is the home of Lorna Doone and Tarka the otter. It is a place of rolling hills, medieval villages, wild moors and a dramatic coastline. The moor does literally meet the sea with the highest sea cliffs in England
In 2011 Exmoor National Park was designated an International Dark Sky Reserve, the first place in Europe to achieve this prestigious award and only the second in the world.
The area is ideal for all types of activity holidays-walking, cycling and mountain biking, fishing, horseriding, and at Wimbleball Lake there is a whole range of watersports on offer. For children there is a Zoo , Dinosaur Park, the Exmoor Pony Centre and traditional seaside resorts to name but a few of the many attractions. There really is something for everyone in Exmoor.
Exford is a village famous for hunting, shooting, fishing and riding. The Devon & Somerset Staghounds have had their kennels in Exford since 1875. Every August the village holds an annual Horse Fair.
Exford is a walkers paradise with miles of waymarked paths. From the cottage you can walk down the valley following the river Exe, or up over the moors to Dunkery Beacon, the highest point on Exmoor with stunning views across the sea to Wales.
There is a local bus service from the village and during the summer months a lovely 1950's open top bus visits the village on it's circular tour from Minehead. The Moor Rover Bus Service also operates in Exmoor. Booked 24 hours in advance the Moor Rover will collect you and take you to any destination of your choice in Exmoor.
There are so many places to visit in the area, but our favourites include the coastal resorts of Lynmouth and Porlock Weir, the stately home of Arlington Court and the medieval village of Dunster with it's magnificent castle.
