The Cottage and grounds are child and dog friendly, a cot, high chair and fire guard can be provided (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.

Just two minutes walk from Wisteria cottage are The Black Venus Inn which serves award-winning food and real ales; and Challacombe Stores and Post Office, where you can buy a delicious cream tea 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.

Wisteria Cottage is one of five holiday cottages at Exmoor Cottage Holidays and has recently been converted from a farm building (Town Tenement Farm) and is fully insulated and double-glazed. Wisteria 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.

“4th Visit”

Reviewed 3 Jul 2016

Yes, same place four years running and going next year. Why? When you find a good thing it's hard to give it up. This cottage is just perfect. One can see this cottage, with the others, has been proudly restored by Melanie & John, the owners. And they continue to take pride in making sure you have a good stay. There is nothing I can write against it. Forth year, yet we still found new places to visit. A lovely cottage in a lovely place, where you can walk for miles on footpaths from the cottage or just sit outside and take in the countryside. Get in your car and visit so many places, sand & sea, villages, steam trains, coastal walks, moorland walks so so much. See you next year.

Thank you for another great review. As always it was a pleasure to see you both. We've been here nearly 20 years and are still finding new walks and things to do! Thank you for booking your fifth holiday with us for next year (high praise indeed!) and we look forward to seeing you then.
