In Barbrook, in an elevated position taking advantage of its semi-rural location, a detached house that has been hugely improved since its mid-20th cent. beginnings. At the back, lovingly maintained, terraced, landscaped gardens climb steeply up to a higher, wilder area adjoining farmland attracting deer, squirrels, foxes and a huge variety of birds; to the front, lush wooded views over a stepped front garden.  Steep drive from parking area to 13 steps up to front door. First-floor living room with oak floor (rug), TV/DVD and handsome glazed extension opening to sunny terrace (table/chairs) with little gated bridge to back garden; loo. On the ground floor, kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, double-oven electric range-style cooker) with TV, slate floor and door to garden; two bedrooms – a double (5' bed) with slate floor (rug), dressing room, en suite shower-room (suite) and glazed doors to terrace, and a twin (linkable to 6' double) with oak floor (rug) and TV/DVD; bathroom (suite with roll-top bath). Not suitable for people with limited mobility. A superb house in a stunningly beautiful area.

The Devon 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.


Barbrook: hamlet (petrol garage) with the West Lyn River tumbling through it and surrounded by woodland, 1½ miles south of Lynton and Lynmouth, on the edge of Exmoor National Park. Pub, 1 mile walk along riverbank.
