In a peaceful spot at the foot of the spectacular Heddon Valley, in Martinhoe is this waterside, detached cottage, Tucking River Lodge.
Situated between Combe Martin and Lynton, within Exmoor National Park and a stone's throw away from the Devon coast, Tucking River Lodge is a cosy home-from-home for a couple looking for a peaceful escape.
Be welcomed by an open-plan living space with big picture windows looking out over the adjacent river Heddon.
Cosy up with your loved one on a comfortable sofa and enjoy the background sound of water gently babbling by.
The kitchen is equipped with everything you'll need to rustle up a romantic dinner for two, to be enjoyed at the neat dining table with stools.
In the evening head up the open tread stairs to bed in a welcoming king-size room.
Enjoy the peacefulness of your secluded location and take in the beautiful views of the valley from the comfort of the rear garden.
There is so much to do without having to stray far from the cottage, stroll to Heddon's Mouth Beach, before venturing to the close-by Hunter's Inn for a delicious lunch as you spot the resident peacocks!
Spend the day in Combe Martin and find the rest of your amenities, before getting up close to the animals in the local Wildlife & Dinosaur Park.
Walkers will love the town's extensive trails, including West Country Walks' hiking area.
Head to picturesque Lynton where you can take a ride on the cliff railway to the charming harbour at Lynmouth, The Valley of Rocks is about a mile walk from Lynton.
Make the most of your location in Exmoor National Park and balance on the ancient Cross Tarr Steps, visit the quaint Working Watermill, and climb up to the highest point of Somerset, Dunkery Beacon.
