Description

Garden Cottage is one of a group of 5 stone cottages at Town Tenement Farm, converted from a traditional farm in the quiet and peaceful village of Challacombe within the beautiful Exmoor National Park. Garden Cottage is all on one level, ideal for those who may have difficulty with stairs. Garden Cottage is full of charm and character. There is a large living room with exposed beams, a log burning stove, leather seating, 32" Freeview TV and French doors out to a private enclosed patio garden with a picnic table. There are two small bedrooms, a double and a twin, and a wet-room with a shower, hand-basin & WC. Free WiFi.

The beautiful wildlife grounds cover nearly three acres and are ideal for families and dogs. There are several wild-flower meadows, a wildlife pond, many species of trees and shrubs, loads of birds and butterflies, and a delightful walk up and around Humphrey's Hill with lovely views of Exmoor.

The cottages and grounds are very child friendly.

The cottages and grounds are very child friendly. We can provide a cot, high chair and fire guard (if required) and within the grounds is a large children's play area comprising two towers linked with a bridge, a swing, slide, climbing board, climbing net, fireman's pole, ladder, periscope and driving wheel. Beside the play area is a sheltered arbour seat with lovely views for the grown-ups.

John & Melanie are usually on-site from 9am to 5pm every day and are very happy to advise you to help you get the very most from your stay, and to provide additional services (e.g. child-minding, breakfast, bed-making and cleaning) - please look at the Availability tab for more details.

Within 300 yards of Garden Cottage is an excellent pub with award-winning food and real ales, and a handy shop and Post Office, with delicious cream teas and home-made cakes.There are amazing walks from the village in every direction and within 5 miles is a charming reservoir, Wistlandpound, with trout fishing and an excellent circular walk.

The village of Challacombe is very friendly towards visitors, and in an ideal central location from which to explore the heart of Exmoor, the sandy beaches of Woolacombe and Croyde, and the rocky coves of the North Devon & Somerset coast.

Garden Cottage is one of five holiday cottages at Exmoor Cottage Holidays and has recently been renovated, with new kitchen & wetroom and part double glazing. Garden Cottage is all on one level, ideal for those who may have difficulty with stairs. Dogs are welcome. John and Melanie look forward to welcoming you to Exmoor.

Location description from owner

The England region

Challacombe is a peaceful friendly village within the Exmoor National Park. There is an award-winning pub in the village, and a shop and post office. Challacombe is surrounded by walks on all sides, perfect for dogs, and within 5 miles is a large lake (Wistlandpound), ideal for trout fishing and with an easy circular walk.

Challacombe

Challacombe is an ideal base from which to explore Exmoor and the north Devon and Somerset coast - within half-an-hours drive are the wide sandy beaches of Woolacombe & Croyde; the seaside resorts of Instow and Ilfracombe; the charming villages of Lynton and Porlock; the medieval towns of Dulverton and Dunster; scenic attractions Tarr Steps and The Valley of Rocks and the whole of Exmoor, with its amazing scenery and wildlife. With so little light pollution at night, Exmoor National Park is the first Dark Skies Reserve in Europe.

Interaction with guest

John & Melanie welcome each guest personally and are usually on-site to help you get the very most from your stay (and to feed the birds!). We have lived in the area since 1997 and can advise the best walks, places to visit, restaurants, local attractions, etc. and show you them on an Ordnance Survey map (which you may borrow). We can help light the fire in your cottage, show you how to keep it going, and liaise with local businesses - and we always have some special offers for our guests.
