Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
In a private combe at the end of a track, this delightful cottage is the quintessential 'hideaway'. The small valley with an idyllic stream running through is in an utterly peaceful and apparently remote location on northern Exmoor but is only 10 minutes from a well-stocked village shop and within easy reach of a wide variety of interesting places to explore.
A former miner's cottage, Lower Goosemoor has surprisingly large and light rooms, modernised with flair and sensitivity. Warm and welcoming, it is thoughtfully equipped and is perfectly complemented by its enchanting grounds. The house is on a bank with grassy areas bordering the stream, a copse and various sitting-out places in front. Three footbridges span the brook and downstream, just outside the cottage grounds but easily visible, is a small lake with an abundance of wildlife.
This cottage is the epitome of a country retreat, a perfect place in which to relax and recharge the batteries before reluctantly rejoining the real world.

About this location
The Somerset region
For the active visitor, walks with fine views are all around, whilst Exmoor's well-known landmarks such as Dunkery Beacon, Tarr Steps and the valleys of the Exe, Barle and East Lyn (setting for Blackmore's famous novel Lorna Doone) are all easily reached. Slightly further afield is the North Devon and Somerset coast with pretty villages in steep combes such as Porlock, Lynton and Lymouth. The mediaeval village of Dunster is nearby, with its 11th century castle (NT), old Yarn Market and interesting shops, pubs and restaurants. Minehead to the north and Tiverton to the south have plenty of shops and facilities, and a visit to Taunton, county town of Somerset, can be combined with a day exploring the beautiful and little-known Quantock Hills to the east.
