The West Country region
Court Farm Holiday Cottages are situated in the heart of Exmoor National Park on the borders of Somerset and Devon. The National Park offers fantatstic scenery and wildlife, endless walking and horse riding on the many paths and bridleways as well as opportunities for mountain biking.
The many villages offer great pubs for food and drink plus plenty of tearooms so a relaxing holiday is also possible! The medieval town of Dunster is well worth a visit and offers a castle as well. The award winning North Devon beaches are within easy driving distance and the spectacular Exmoor cliffs (the highest in England) are always worth seeing. Recently voted the UK's favourite National Park, Exmoor has to be worth a visit at any time of year.
Located in the Somerset village of Exford, Court Farm Holiday Cottages are positioned on a bridleway adjacent to the River Exe right in the heart of Exmoor National Park. Exford has two good pubs, a tearoom, village stores and a Post Office. COurt Farm is ideal for walkers, riders, cyclists, dogs and their owners and anyone who wants to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the true English countryside. England’s largest wild animal, the Red Deer and the endangered Exmoor Pony can all be seen on Exmoor close to Court Farm. A wonderful centre for exploring this area of unspoilt countryside, it is also ideal for a spot of stargazing. Exmoor National Park has recently acquired International Dark Sky Reserve status and featured on the BBC Stargazing Live TV program. The night skies can be spectacular.
Tarr Steps, an ancient clapper bridge is a renowned beauty spot just 5 miles away and Watersmeet, Lynton & Lynmouth are within easy reach by car.

"Home from home"
This was our second stay in this cottage and it wont be the last.
The cottage is spacious, comfy and very well equiped. A perfect home from home.
We stayed with our dog who loves the huge garden and all the space, so much so we had a very sulky border collie when we were packing up to leave!
The area is stunning with great walks from the doorstep and in the local area. There is a lovely pub within a 5 minute walk - the Exmoor White Horse Inn - This serves great local beers and is dog friendly too.
Dave is really helpful and is on hand if you need any help, advice on the area.
We will definitely be back!

"Beautiful cottage in a fab location & lovely friendly people."
This a fantastic cottage in a quiet location but only a ten min walk to the village shop & pubs. The photo's don't do it justice as both downstairs rooms are extremely spacious. We stayed with our children & 7 dogs with plenty of room for all. There is also a large secure garden. The cottage has everything you need & Dave the owner is on hand with lots of local knowledge & to let you know what's going on to enhance your visit. Highly recommend & we will definately go back!!!

"Superb place to stay - especially with dogs"
A lovely spot right by the river, lovely, well equipped cottages and safely fenced gardens. Fab walking from the door step and conveniently placed for visiting other parts of Exmoor too. Both pubs in the village do good food and accept dogs. The only holiday I have been on when I wanted to book for next year before I left!

"High quality, spacious accommodation in the heart of Exmoor"
Our trip was fantastic with excellent walks onto Exmoor National park right from the doorstep. The village of Exford has excellent amenities including 2 good pubs which can be reached by a short walk along a river path. The accommodation was very spacious and well planned out. There was plenty of room for everyone and plenty of room to relax.

"Not wanting to go home !"
Location amazing, great to just slip into a slower pace of life. Great walks that begin at the door of the cottage. 10 min walk into heart of village which has two excellent pubs which serve good pub food, also well stocked village shop.
The cottage was large and very dog friendly, nice secure garden. Everything you could have wanted was there and a lovely view from every window. Has good central heating but owners were more than happy for us to use wood burning stove, fun to toast crumpets !
Hosts were very friendly and very approachable, more than happy to chat but left you to enjoy everything. Have booked already to go back later in year !

We stayed at Mountain Ash Cottage for a long weekend and had a great time. The cottage was well equipped and spacious with a very comfortable bed. There was an enclosed garden at the back where we could safely let the dog out and there were lots of walks directly from the cottage so we didn't need to use the car all weekend. The village with its shop and dog friendly pubs/ eateries was also within easy walking distance. The owners of the cottage were very friendly and helpful so we felt very much at home & will certainly go back

The cottage is lovely, very spacious and has all the amenities you could want.
The owner met us on our arrival and showed us around the property and even left milk in the fridge and logs for the fire!
It is in a very quiet location and close to many lovely walks including Tarr Steps. We tried to book again immediately for the next half term, but unfortunately it was already booked. we shall certainly be going back
