Location description from owner

The England region

North Devon & Exmoor offer the perfect UK holiday setting. Whether you are looking for a weekend break, a romantic getaway or family holiday. There are few places in Britain that lay claim to such a beautiful combination of stunning landscapes. A coastline of spectacular cliffs, secret coves and golden beaches together with a hinterland of wild moorland, sparkling river valleys and lush rolling hills make North Devon and Exmoor a very special place to visit.With a 171 sq km area of outstanding natural beauty and World Class Status, North Devon is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve because of its blend of special landscapes and wildlife areas, rich cultural heritage and communities that care about it and want to sustain it into the future. North Devon is a truly unique place to visit.North Devon has managed to maintain a delicate balance between its heritage and modern life. It is a friendly, laid-back and beautiful part of the country.

South Molton

Whitechapel is extremely well placed for exploring the whole of North Devon. We are also situated within an hour's journey of Dartmoor, meaning South Devon is easily within reach too. Exmoor, one of the smallest of Britain's National Parks, is also known as Lorna Doone country as it is the base of R.D. Blackmore's famous novel of the same name. Amongst the beautiful moorland lie several beautiful villages including Dunster - with its magnificent Dunster Castle. Exford is the ideal base to explore the ancient Tarr Steps and to take part in fishing, shooting and riding. Journey time by car to the moor is approximately 10 minutes.

“Can't wait to go back!”

Reviewed 20 Mar 2012

A delightful country cottage, well furnished and appointed, with everything we could have wished for. The spacious and comfortable rooms were much appreciated and the well-appointed kitchen made cooking easy and pleasurable. We thoroughly enjoyed the jacuzzi and sauna which, for us, stood out as one of the highlights. The only problem we discovered was a malfunctioning central heating system. However, Mr Burgess was quick to provide convection heaters to ensure we were warm and cosy. He is a superb host and landlord.

“Warm, friendly and welcoming”

Reviewed 16 Mar 2012

The house was large and well fitted out with two log fires and plenty of wood to keep the December chills away (as well as central heating). The beds and furniture were in good condition and comfortable and everything was spotlessly clean. The spa and games room were good fun at no extra cost - as this was a long birthday weekend celebration it was great to pamper ourselves in the hot tub after a long winter walk. Chris was helpful, friendly and available and made us very welcome. My only niggle was that there was a broken window in one of the bedrooms that was impossible to close. As there was a couple of wild, windy nights, this made for a draughty, noisy night for the person in that room. However, as we didn't tell Chris until afterwards, we can hardly blame him for not fixing it!
