C18th Inglenook Cottage
Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 5
The C18th Inglenook Cottage is a stone-built two-storey cottage converted from a former farm (Town Tenement Farm) in the peaceful village of Challacombe within the Exmoor National Park. The large living room has an impressive stone inglenook fireplace with a log burning stove, bread oven, salt safe and 32" widescreen TV. The separate kitchen is well equipped and has a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer, and a stable door leading out to a private enclosed patio garden and there is also a small front garden with a picnic table. There are three bedrooms, a double, a single and a king-sized double (or twin utilising a ziplink bed). The bright, modern bathroom has a bath, separate shower & WC.
Beside the cottage are three acres of wildlife grounds, ideal for families and dogs. There are wildflower meadows, several lawned and wooded areas, fruit and vegetable gardens, 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 play area with two towers linked with a bridge, including swings, a slide, climbing board, climbing ropes and fireman's pole.
The village of Challacombe is very friendly towards visitors, there are excellent local walks and it is an ideal central location from which to explore Exmoor, the sandy beaches of Woolacombe and Croyde, and the rocky coves of the North Devon & Somerset coast.
Within two minutes walk is a pub, The Black Venus, with award-winning food and real ales; and a Post Office & shop, with delicious cream teas and home-made cakes.
Inglenook Cottage is one of five cottages at Exmoor Cottage Holidays and has been recently renovated with double glazing, insulated walls, and a new kitchen and bathroom.

The West Country region
Challacombe is a peaceful friendly village within the Exmoor National Park. There is an award-winning pub in the village, and a shop and post office. Challacombe is surrounded by walks on all sides, perfect for dogs, and within 5 miles is a large lake (Wistlandpound), ideal for trout fishing and with an easy circular walk.
Challacombe is an ideal base from which to explore Exmoor and the north Devon and Somerset coast - within half-an-hours drive are the wide sandy beaches of Woolacombe & Croyde; the seaside resorts of Instow and Ilfracombe; the charming villages of Lynton and Porlock; the medieval towns of Dulverton and Dunster; scenic attractions Tarr Steps and The Valley of Rocks and the whole of Exmoor, with its amazing scenery and wildlife. With so little light pollution at night, Exmoor National Park is the first Dark Skies Reserve in Europe.

"Lovely cottage, with all the equipment you might need, clean & comfortable and warm."
The cottage has all you need for the day of arrival, tea, coffee, milk, sugar also no need to take tea towels and cleaning products, all provided. We met John, who was very helpful on where to go. Ou… More

"Fantastic setting, beautiful surroundings!"
Family holiday, hired 4 of the 5 cottages. Very warm and welcoming. We have 2 children (5yrs and 6 months) and plenty of space for them. Bedrooms ideal sizes and stunning views from the front ones. Po… More
Thank you for your great review. We are really happy that you all had such a great stay.
Some of the roads are indeed a bit 'exciting'! There are so many lovely little towns along the coast, Ilfracombe, Lynmouth and Minehead...
We are glad you liked our play area - our aim is to exhaust the children - hence it's up the hill ;-), and that you found the lovely peaceful pond area.
We look forward to seeing you again.

"Lovely Devon Country setting"
How friendly and helpful the owners were and it was great to find that everything was beautifully clean with everything provided when we arrived to enjoy our stay. The location was ideal for us with t… More
Thank you for your great review. We are very happy that you found everything that you needed in Inglenook Cottage. We are very fortunate to have the award winning Black Venus Inn nearby and the local walks are great.
We do provide a night light beside the top stair as a visual reminder and there is a vertical grab rail on the right (as you are going up the stairs)...we are sorry if you had difficulties with this.
Our Garden Cottage and Wisteria Cottage are both at ground-floor level throughout - perhaps we could interest you in one of those for your next visit?
We look forward to seeing you again.

Inglenook is a really nice place to stay with a great old world feel to it but with all that you would expect from a holiday cottage TV/DVD, WiFi, washer, dryer, dishwasher etc. The cottage is set in … More

We look forward to seeing you at Town Tenement Farm again.

Thank you for your nice review - we are glad that you enjoyed your stay, it was quite a blustery weekend!
The dark skies are great for star gazing - we hope you managed to get a clear night.
We look forward to seeing you again.

"A lovely cottage"
We stayed at Inglenook Cottage for a windy week in October. It was warm and cosy. We did get out for a few walks but the cottage, although small, was a lovely place to shelter from the storms. Great f… More
Thank you for your feedback. Dogs are very welcome in the lounge in Inglenook and most of our guests bring towels, blankets and bedding for their dogs' comfort. Some prefer their dogs to stay in the kitchen, which has a vinyl floor. Next time you may wish to consider the Farmhouse, it is even more spacious than Inglenook and has a stone floor in the lounge.

One of the best 'dog friendly' cottages we have ever stayed in (We have 3 dogs!). The cottage itself and the location plus the attention to detail and friendliness of the owners, John and M… More

We are glad that you liked Inglenook Cottage and look forward to seeing you again soon.
