In Timberscombe, a pretty, 18th cent. red stone cottage at the end of a row of equally attractive cottages, looking out over the village green and wooded hills beyond the beginning of Exmoor National Park. In typical 18th cent. fashion, its large, private lawned garden (table/chairs, barbecue, bench, Wendy house) is about 50' away, surrounded by other well kept gardens and reached safely via a footpath. Inside, a comfortable mix of new and old complemented by simple unfussy decor. Stable doors into fitted L-shaped kitchen with dishwasher, combi-microwave, electric 3-oven/5-ring range-style cooker, larder fridge; little breakfast room with stable doors to back courtyard, and garden footpath to outhouse with washer-drier, freezer and 'his/hers' and small child's bicycles (own risk). Width-of-cottage living room with table/chairs, huge inglenook ('living flame' oil-stove), TV/DVD, oak floor and beams (6'2"). Stairs (stairgate) up to two bedrooms (electric heaters) – a roomy double (6' bed) with pretty views, and a single; bathroom (suite plus bath-shower). A gem of a cottage, just 150 yards from the friendly, good food pub.

The West Country 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.

Minehead

Timberscombe: old village (friendly real ale pub) of ruby-red stone cottages in a farming valley flanked by wooded hillsides leading from Exmoor's high lands via Dunster, 2½ miles away, to the sea. Minehead (small resort town with sandy beach, harbour, good golf, Butlins), 4½. Superb Exmoor walks and good horse riding.
