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 .

A stable door leads into the enclosed cottage garden, which contains a small lawn and a patio area with a table and four chairs.
There is plenty of free parking available in the village.

Duvets, pillows, bed linen, bath towels, and tea towels are included in the price.

The West Country region
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.
Exmoor is host to numerous events and festivals throughout the year. Highlights include the Walking Festivals in Spring and Autumn, the Dulverton Folk Festival in May, the UK Ironman Triathlon in June, the Exmoor Explorer mountain bike marathon in August and the Porlock Arts Festival in September.

"Cute, cosy cottage in perfect location"
A very comfortable and clean cottage with everything you need to feel at home straight away. The window seats offer lovely views of the village green and passing horses! Great location for exploring exmoor and easily accessible to coast. Walks from front door and nice pubs and tea room in village. The cottage is compact as to be expected from a character cottage but perfect for a family holiday and the garden is a real bonus.

"Relaxing and well appointed"
The cottage is compact but well equipped and has a great location in the centre of the village. I was taking my Aunt and mother for a quiet Spring break and it was an ideal place. There are good facilities in the village and the villagers are very welcoming. It was easy to get to the coast, to some lovely villages and market towns. The West Somerset Railway trip was popular. I would certainly recommend this cottage to others and comments in the visitors book show that there are plenty of loyal customers who return repeatedly.

"Lovely cosy cottage in beautiful area"
We enjoyed a week's stay in the cottage. Excellent communication with the owner who provided clear details about the cottage and answered questions. Appreciated the welcome tray and the wood burner fire ready to light. Village is a great place to get away from it all and enjoy the walking and horse riding on the moors and through the woods. Plenty of interesting places to visit. I read Lorna Doone while I was there and visited the Doone Valley and Oare church, it really brought the novel to life. Would like to return, perhaps in the Spring.
