  • Mike

    “Lovely family house in a stunning location.”

    Great when the sun shines and cosy if it rains. Owner popped in to check all was well. One of the best walking locations we have ever been to.

The property

A detached cottage in beautiful, remote wooded countryside about 300 yards from Tarr Steps (medieval bridge over a pretty river) and a pub/good restaurant (across the river), down a narrow lane a mile from Hawkridge.

This is one of the best spots on the moor for fishing; 7 miles of trout and salmon fishing (fly only), by arrangement (extra).

Riding stables nearby; fishing and shooting tuition can be arranged.

The cottage is spacious, south-facing, with enclosed garden looking towards a steep wooded cleave (red deer).

Inside, bright and full of light with good-sized windows.


Big kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine, tumble drier, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker, breakfast table/chairs.

Large open-plan living/dining room with open fire, TV/DVD and French windows to the garden.

Shower-room (suite with surround power-shower).

Steep stairs (stairgates) up to three bedrooms - the master double (5' bed), a small twin (2'6" beds), and another small double (limited clothes-hanging space); bathroom (suite plus hand-shower).

More steep stairs up to two attic double bedrooms (limited clothes-hanging space), one with 6' zip-linked bed or twin, the other with 5' bed, and bathroom (suite), all with low headroom.

Spring water.

A wonderful, peaceful setting: birdsong and the sound of the river the only intrusion. Hawkridge: tiny, remote village close to the beautiful wooded valley of the river Barle.

Red deer, other wild animals and birds in abundance.

Nearest shops, Dulverton, 7 miles.

The sea at Porlock, about 15 miles; the great sand/surf beaches at Saunton (fine golf course), Woolacombe and Croyde, about 30.
