Description

In the lush wooded grounds of the grand Edwardian hunting lodge (see F30) about a mile from Porlock, an attached cottage renovated from the chief instructor's quarters of one of the finest riding stables in Somerset. At the back, original, beautifully cobbled stable yard and stables which are used. At the front, a footpath takes you through two pony paddocks to the beach (250 yards).

Access through its enclosed garden (table/chairs) via 6 steps. A large, rare Cornus tree shades the front door; hall for coats/boots; two ground-floor bedrooms – a roomy double (5' bed) with en suite bathroom (suite, shower over bath, second door to hall), and step up to a twin with en suite shower-room (suite). Stairs (stairgates) up to open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, slimline cooker) with TV/DVD, iPod dock and glimpses of surrounding wooded hills; second living room-cum-den with sofa bed and TV. Pub, café and harbour, 1 mile level walk. Shooting

Location description from owner

The Exmoor National Park 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.

Porlock

Porlock Vale: stunningly beautiful, romantic area with some of the best and most varied landscape of the Exmoor National Park, extending from Dunkery Beacon (highest point) to the sea and encompassing many picture-postcard villages, the largest being Porlock at the seaward end. Wonderful walking and pony-trekking.
