South facing, the cottage is comfortable, well equipped and enjoys an attractive garden with wonderful views of the village, farmland and wooded hillsides of the Exe Valley beyond. It is a minute's walk from the centre of the village that itself boasts no less than eight bridges over the river Exe and Winn Brook in the middle of the village and is well provided for with a Post Office General stores, a good pub, tea shop and restaurant. From here there is unsurpassed walking directly from the cottage, ideal to explore the clear sparkling rivers winding amongst the deep wooded combes or climb up onto the wild open heather-clad moorland and spot the famous Exmoor ponies and red deer. There is excellent riding on open moorland with horses available for hire and fishing on 3 local reservoirs or on the Exe and Barle Rivers (licences available from the Post Office). This is a glorious part of the world, unspoilt and just begging to be explored.

The West Country region

A warm welcome awaits all who travel to this county of contrast. Long sweeping beaches and coastal resorts at Minehead, Burnham-on-Sea, Weston-Super-Mare or Clevedon are perfect for family holidays made from sand, sea and surf. Venture inland and you will find an epic and wild countryside, alive with colour and atmosphere. Exmoor National Park plus three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty play home to a diverse range of wildlife.

Steeped in history, legend and tradition, Somerset promises a rich journey full of sights and sounds that will stir the senses.


Step back to a time of mystics and magic, following the legend of King Arthur to Glastonbury, where the hippy spirit lives on, especially at the annual greenfields music festival, one of the world's largest. Look-up in awe at Wells Cathedral as it stands majestically at the centre of England's smallest city. Promenade along the pier at Clevedon and drink in the view.
