The property

2 miles from Parracombe, and a 2½ mile walk from the little pebble beach at dramatic Heddon's Mouth, deep in a lush tranquil wooded valley, three cottages which started life as grain and animal barns.

They nestle, with the farmhouse, in the shelter of mature trees and ancient hedgerows - full of wild flowers, birds and butterflies at the right time of year - and have lovely views to Trentishoe Down.

There are 40 acres of pasture, streams, wild wood and moorland which you are welcome to explore.

This is terrific walking country, far away from the hustle of modern urban life, and an ideal spot to enjoy its calm.

Timeless green lane and woodland footpath (walking boots needed) to Hunters Inn, about 1½ miles.

Shared use of laundry room which is separate to the property (washing machine, tumble drier) and games barn (table tennis, pool table).

Spring water.The Bothy: a private detached single-storey cottage with French windows overlooking its little wild garden.

Approached via 80 yards of steep sloping path (which may not be suitable for those unsteady on their feet), 4 steps up to glazed doors into large open-plan room with high beams, painted wood floor (rug), antique furniture, comfy sofa, TV/DVD, dining table/chairs, woodburner and imposing four-poster bed (5’); 2 steps up to little kitchen with combi-microwave, fridge and electric cooker, through to shower-room (suite).

No children, except pre-crawling babies.

1x small dog accepted.

Dog washing and drying facilities available at an extra charge.

A romantic cottage. Parracombe: tiny village (great pub, medieval church with famous Georgian interior, PO/shop, pottery) near Exmoor's dramatic coast in a valley midway between Lynton/Lynmouth, 8 miles, and Combe Martin, 6 miles.

This is steep, dramatic, deep-valleyed, farming, wooded and moorland country: very beautiful.

Wide sandy beaches at Woolacombe and Croyde, about 12 miles.

At the point where the Exmoor National Park and the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty meet, is where you'll find Combe Martin. This small seaside resort, with all of the necessary amenities, is a great attraction for locals and visitors alike, and is home to a very popular beach as well its own Dinosaur Park! Follow the 230 hidden steps down to Golden Cove for some spectacular views. Situated on the South West Coast Path, Combe Martin is also home to several dog-friendly pubs and local stores; great for provisions along your journey.
