The C18th Inglenook Cottage is a stone-built two-storey cottage converted from a former farm (Town Tenement Farm) in the quiet and peaceful village of Challacombe within the beautiful Exmoor National Park. Inglenook Cottage is full of charm and character. The large living room has an impressive stone inglenook fireplace with a log burning stove, bread oven, and salt safe; comfortable seating, and a 32" Freeview TV. The separate kitchen is very well equipped with electric oven & hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer, and a stable door leads out to a private enclosed patio garden and there is also a small open front garden with a picnic table. Free WiFi.
There are three bedrooms upstairs, a double, a single and a king-sized (or twin utilising a ziplink bed). The bright, modern bathroom has a bath, separate shower & WC.
Beside Inglenook Cottage are three acres of wildlife grounds, ideal for families and dogs. There are wildflower meadows, several lawned and wooded areas, a wildlife pond, lots of birds and butterflies and a delightful walk up and around Humphrey's Hill.
The cottages and grounds are very child friendly. We can provide a cot, high chair, fire guard and stair gate (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.
Within 300 yards of Inglenook Cottage is an excellent pub with award-winning food and real ales, and a handy shop and Post Office, with delicious cream teas and home-made cakes.
The village of Challacombe is very friendly towards visitors, has excellent local walks and is 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.
Inglenook Cottage is one of five holiday cottages at Exmoor Cottage Holidays and has recently been completely renovated, including double-glazing and insulation to the outside walls. There are four other cottages, also listed in this website, with one to three bedrooms, surrounding a peaceful courtyard. John and Melanie look forward to welcoming you to Exmoor.
