Reviews

    • “Fantastic house with a wonderful view across valley, all had a great weekend, thanks.”

    Mr Worfolk, Exeter, September 2018

    • “The Mount is a beautiful house in a wonderful setting on Exmore. The house is generously equipped with high quality furnishings, equipment and kitchen needs We had 4 children ranging in age from 5 to 10 years and the play room provided them with endless fun and things to do. We felt the owners had thought of everything to make the house comfortable and a delight to spend our holiday in. We strongly recommend it and send thanks.”

    Mrs Prasad, Bristol, August 2018

    • “Beautiful house in excellent village location. Very spacious for large groups. Just need to take care with young children due to drops in small garden”

    Mrs Michel, MATLOCK, June 2018

    • “The house was perfect for our group of six adults with plenty of room to relax away from the group while reading a book from the extensive library or sitting in the garden, as well as great community areas for getting together. The view across the village is beautiful. We had a couple of great evenings around the fire pit cooking sausages and marshmallows. Nearby Dulverton is a beautifully quaint village with friendly people in the local shops. The local restaurants are good and worth a visit on the nights you don’t want to cook. A small warning, the walk up to the house is pretty steep so if you’re used to flat ground it’s a shock to the system but you do get used to it after the first couple of goes. The basement rooms were great for video gaming and the sound doesn’t bleed through too much to the ground floor rooms and not at all to the upstairs rooms (if you have night owls in your group) . Minehead has great beaches, it will take at least 30mins to get there contrary to the sat navs opinion of 20mins this is because cars drive generally slower on the bendy roads (they actually should on these, so just relax and enjoy the views). All in all we had a perfect week and would recommend this house to anyone.”

    Mr Rogers, HUNTINGDON, June 2018

    • “The Mount is in a spectacular situation and the walk down to Dulverton was no problem for us OAP's. The return journey up the hill was a little more difficult but we all managed! There are plenty nearby good walks/strolls from the house. Dulverton is also very convenient with the Bridge Inn so near! We would certainly recommend this holiday home to larger groups of friends or families ( there were 8 of us ). A wonderful area.”

    Mr Evans, Kingswinford, May 2018

    • “Lovely house, the owner was fantastic. Would definitely stay there again.”

    Mrs Tompkins, Buckingham, April 2018

    • “Lovely spacious house, very well equipped, everything you need in kitchen, loads if toys for all ages, games, books and dvds. Great views. Kids had a lovely time jusy playing in the house as weather was very rainy. There is garden (but steep drops so need to watch young kids playing) and a play park a few mins walk from house too. It was no problem for us but as it says in the description be aware that there is a very steep road to house. House recently renovated so nice modern kichen and bathrooms. Some furniture is a bit tired but is in keeping with house style and did not affect our enjoyment of the house and holiday. Owners very lovely and helpful.”

    Mrs Mcgahan, BILLINGSHURST, April 2018

Regional Information

DULVERTON 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.
