The property

Wheddon Cross 3.6 miles.

Upper Barn Cottage at Middle Burrow is a fabulous, detached dwelling nested in beautiful countryside, with views from every window and just a stone's throw away from the coast, near the village of Wheddon Cross, situated within the Exmoor National Park.

The property dates back to the 17th century and interestingly was originally used as a threshing barn to process grain, before later being converted in the seventies and again in 2018.

Boasting a lovely rural location and having an unusual, reverse level layout inside, this well-presented holiday let is ideal for families and friends looking to explore a wonderful part of the UK.

The living room on the first floor makes the most of the views across the grounds, with a charming outlook over the garden at Middle Burrow and Grabbist Hill, with the pond surrounded by mature trees and a green lawn.

The dual aspect lets in plenty of natural light to uplift your mood each day, while the vaulted ceiling adds character.

This spacious room leads through to the kitchen and dining area, where you can cook up a scrumptious meal and gather with the family to catch up on the events from the day and plan further fun trips out.

Once you have relaxed into your evening with maybe a board game or some TV, retire downstairs to the bedrooms.

There is a king-size double with wardrobe, dressing table and bedside tables with reading lamps, while at the other end of the house accessed via a second set of stairs from the kitchen, is the twin bedroom, which is ideal for those travelling with kids.

They each come with their own bathroom facilities making it easy for you all to get ready in the mornings, and there is even a handy utility room housing a washing machine and tumble dryer.

Outside you have a delightful garden with places to sit and rest with a drink on a warm summers day as the sounds of wildlife fill your ears.

There is a plethora of walking nearby, with a footpath leading to the moors directly from Upper Barn Cottage.

Note: This property can be booked with 1096386, together sleeping up to six guests.
