There is also a large patio at the front of the house where you can quietly sit and sip champagne (sorry not supplied) and watch the sun go down over the village.

Conversly, if you feeling energetic you can always take a stroll around the seven acres of woods.

So whether it's an old fashioned beach holiday coupled with a bit of surfing, or an activity filled holiday with lots of new pursuits or just a relaxing holiday with time to take in the exceptional countryside and a few hostelries, the combination of Exmoor and the Great House will do it for you.

Location description from owner

The Exmoor National Park region

Timberscombe is within the Exmoor National Park in an area of outstanding natural beauty and in easy reach of the sort of places dreams are made of. Just down the road is the historic medieval village of Dunster, with its castle (NT) gift and coffee shops.

While on the coast we can start at Watchet, with its new marina and steam railway. This runs from Bishops Lydeard, near Taunton, to Minehead, where Exmoor first meets the sea. Minehead with its amusements arcades and Butlins is in complete contrast to Exmoor, but just walk from the high street onto North Hill and you are in a different world (no wonder so many people retire down here). If you want to have a day off from your children, Butlins, on the seafront at Minehead, is a must, providing entertainment and amusements all day long. Day tickets are excellent value.

Further along the coast is the town of Porlock with its infamous hill, and then over the moor on one of the most scenic routes anywhere is Lynmouth and Lynton, famous for its floods, but now recovered and picturesque. Next we have the Valley of the Rocks and Heddon's Mouth, with a compulsory stop at the “Hunter's Inn”. Suitably refreshed, Ilfracombe and the surfing beaches of Woolacombe are next, just over an hour's easy drive from Timberscombe.

Then it's back over the moor to Simonsbath and the pretty Exmoor village of Exford with a top up at the White Horse and then on to Timberscombe.
