Wisteria Cottage is a single-storey stone-built cottage, with a large enclosed garden, in the peaceful village of Challacombe, within the Exmoor National Park. The bright and spacious living room has a cosy log-burning stove, 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, a hand-basin & WC.
The beautiful wildlife grounds cover nearly three acres and there are several wild-flower meadows, a wildlife pond, many species of trees and shrubs, a fruit and vegetable garden, loads of birds and butterflies, and a delightful walk up and around Humphrey's Hill with lovely views of Exmoor.
Just two minutes walk from the 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.
Wisteria cottage is all on one level, ideal for those who have difficulty with stairs. Wisteria has been newly converted from a farm building (Town Tenement Farm) and is fully insulated and double-glazed. Dogs are welcome. Free WiFi.
Wisteria is one of five cottages converted from a former farm and known as Exmoor Cottage Holidays.
