from £48 /night help
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
' in Timberscombe, an 18th cent. red stone cottage in a row looking over the village green to wooded hills stretching to Exmoor.

The cottage has been lovingly restored, making it a charming, comfortable home. Door from the lane into living/dining room with big inglenook fireplace (woodburner) and TV/DVD. Fitted kitchen (dishwasher, small washing machine, microwave, small freezer) with door to path to the garden. Downstairs shower-room (suite). From the living room (door), original steep spiral stairs (rope rail) up to two bright double bedrooms. A delightfully cosy cottage close to a good food pub and well situated for the West Somerset Steam Railway and exploring Exmoor.

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.
Timberscombe: old village (friendly real ale pub, church) of ruby-red stone cottages in a farming valley flanked by wooded hillsides leading from Exmoor�s high lands via Dunster, 2� miles away, to the sea. Minehead (small resort town with sandy beach, harbour, good golf, Butlins), 4�. Superb Exmoor walks and good horse riding.
