A detached cottage in beautiful, remote wooded countryside about 300 yards from Tarr Steps (medieval bridge over a pretty river) and a pub/good restaurant (across the river), down a narrow lane a mile from Hawkridge. This is one of the best spots on the moor for fishing; 7 miles of trout and salmon fishing (fly only), by arrangement (extra). Riding stables nearby; fishing and shooting tuition can be arranged. The cottage is spacious, south-facing, with enclosed garden looking towards a steep wooded cleave (red deer). Inside, bright and full of light with good-sized windows and lovely paintings and prints. Hall. Big kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine, tumble drier, microwave, fridge-freezer, breakfast table/chairs. Very large open-plan living/dining room with open fire, TV/DVD/video and French windows to the garden. Shower-room (suite with surround power-shower). Steep stairs (stairgates) up to three bedrooms � the master double (5' bed), a small twin (2�6" beds), and another small double (limited clothes-hanging space); bathroom (suite plus hand-shower). More steep stairs up to two attic double bedrooms (limited clothes-hanging space), one with 6' zip-linked bed or twin, the other with 5' bed, and bathroom (suite, shower over bath), all with low headroom. Spring water. A wonderful, peaceful setting: birdsong and the sound of the river the only intrusion.

The Somerset region

Exmoor: exquisite National Park beside the sea: beech trees, sheep, wheeling buzzards and heather hills, from many of which you look over the sea to Wales and its mountains. Below are the most gracefully carved of steep oak-filled valleys where rushing, bouldered little rivers are paddleable and the red deer spend the winters, and perhaps the most dream-like rose-covered cottage villages of them all, where the pace of life is leisurely. At night, marvellously unpolluted skies for stargazing (recently designated an International Dark Sky Reserve).

Porlock Vale is one of the most beautiful farmed bits of England, Dunkery must be ascended, the area of The Chains is wild and wonderful for walking or riding; the Oare valley (Lorna Doone country) is an excellent place to take Granny for a visit to tiny, fascinating Oare church, a cream tea in Malmsmead and a sunset drive afterwards through the Valley of the Rocks to Woody Bay (if you drive well). Minehead, the main town, is good for sandcastles, has a Butlins (and a good golf course and a harbour) and isn�t too big. Medieval Dunster is very pretty and has a fine castle (inhabited, National Trust); Dulverton, on the southern edge of the moor and popular with artists, has interesting shops and galleries; Culbone church, one of England�s smallest, is worth walking to. Lots of good food pubs in �hidden� villages, like Luxborough, where the welcome is warm and the atmosphere relaxed.

Hawkridge

Hawkridge: tiny, remote village close to the beautiful wooded valley of the river Barle. Red deer, other wild animals and birds in abundance. Nearest shops, Dulverton, 7 miles. The sea at Porlock, about 15 miles; the great sand/surf beaches at Saunton (fine golf course), Woolacombe and Croyde, about 30.
