  • Linda

    “Wonderful cottage very clean and a lovely log fire for cosy nights.”

    Layout suited us but if 2 separate families lower bathroom did not offer privacy as open plan. Beds very comfy good selection of DVD’s offered for all ages. Good location 10 min walk to Dulverton. Loved Tarr steps…the Sunday lunches looked huge! Wimbleball lake great for walking. Lyndon Lynmouth very enjoyable even in inclement weather. Would definately revisit this cottage and recommend to family and friends.

The property

On the banks of the river Barle within Exmoor National Park in Dulverton Somerset, is this beautifully styled detached cottage.

Recently renovated, this gorgeous cottage provides an exceptional home from home for friends or families looking to escape.

Enter to a newly fitted kitchen appointed with everything you'll need and original flag floors before passing through to the bright and spacious sitting room.

Here you'll find a wood burning stove, perfect for cosy evenings in on the comfortable sofas.

Located in a lovely conservatory style room with views over the garden and ample seating for families the dining area is ideal for gathering together over an evening meal or a hearty breakfast.

From here, two steps lead down to a twin bedroom and a shower room adjacent to it.

The cottage boasts two separate staircases, each leading to a sumptuous bedroom, one with a kingsize bed and a twin room.

These are served by a spacious family bathroom, with a big corner tub to soak your cares away.

Outside there is a lawned garden with a neat patio, table and chairs and a BBQ.

There could be no greater pleasure than to simply sit and unwind with a glass of something cool or dine alfresco whilst listening to the current babbling along below.

The town of Dulverton rests on the edge of the Exmoor National Park and hosts a selection of independent shops and supermarkets, as well as some pubs and restaurants if you don't fancy cooking one evening.

Exmoor National Park is home to a number of fascinating trails for walking, hiking or cycling opportunities and the area is recognised for its abundance of wildlife, including deer, otters, bats and dormice.

Tarr Steps, a medieval stone clapper bridge across the River Barle located 4 miles from Dulverton, is well worth a visit.

Further afield, you'll find traditional seaside fun at Minehead and Blue Anchor Bay.

Ideal for lovers of both coast and country, Shepherds Cottage is a wonderful retreat.

About the location


Minehead 17 miles.

Dulverton is the southern gateway to the Exmoor National Park, a small town standing between the rivers Barle and Exe, which meet further down the valley. Dulverton has some quaint narrow streets weaving between fine Victorian buildings and a three arched bridge crossing the river leading to riverside walks. There are plenty of shops, restaurants and pubs in Dulverton and in the square is the Exmoor National Park visitor centre and art gallery, offering plenty of inspiration for exploring the vast expanse of the moor on foot, on horseback or from behind the wheel. Why not try an off road safari around Exmoor to see red deer, wild ponies and rare birds? Exmoor has been designated as a Dark Sky Reserve, where the light pollution is low and plenty of stargazing can be done. Near to Dulverton is the majestic lake at Wimblewall Country Park, the first Dark Skies Discovery Centre on Exmoor. Wimblewall is also a premier trout fishing location, and provides tuition in numerous water sports, including sailing, windsurfing and canoeing. Further afield the North Somerset coastline has sandy beaches at Minehead, picturesque harbours and plenty of wild walking around Porlock Weir. A fabulous holiday destination for all those enjoying outdoor activities, dramatic landscapes and wildlife.
