    “Dunsley Mill is the perfect holiday cottage and John and Helen are the perfect hosts.”

    We loved the layout of the ground floor of the property with a surprisingly spacious open-plan living-room and kitchen/dining room and three good-sized bedrooms upstairs. The new shower room on the ground floor was very luxurious. The owners have thought of everything - the house is comprehensively equipped including Sky and perfectly reliable internet and there were many generous touches like complementary tea, coffee and toiletries among other things.

    We loved the layout of the ground floor of the property with a surprisingly spacious open-plan living-room and kitchen/dining room and three good-sized bedrooms upstairs. The new shower room on the ground floor was very luxurious. The owners have thought of everything - the house is comprehensively equipped including Sky and perfectly reliable internet and there were many generous touches like complementary tea, coffee and toiletries among other things. The location of the house is idyllic - set down a long private drive (which itself is off a very quiet lane) - means that it is absolutely peaceful. The owners are on hand if you need anything but in no way intrusive. The welcome and hospitality is exceptional and John and Helen were incredibly kind with help and support when a personal problem arose. We spent a blissful week over Christmas arriving on my younger daughter's 21st birthday. John and Helen had very thoughtfully put up Christmas decorations and kindly left a touching card and present for my daughter. Despite the constant rain, the beauty of the place, the comfort of the house and the hospitality of our hosts shone through. We would recommend this cottage to anyone who is looking for a lovely place to stay in a beautiful setting. We hope to be able to return in the future when the weather is kinder!

The property

Arriving at Dunsley Mill, visitors will be captivated by the peace and tranquillity of this sheltered valley.

Surrounded by 30 acres the only sounds are the distant calls of owls and buzzards and the soothing trickle of water from the small river that runs through the grounds.

A perfect rural retreat, visitors to this charismatic barn conversion find it difficult to leave, the visitors book is testament to this where guests note their eagerness to return year on year.

Lovingly restored the barn is brimming with character and charm with restored timber beams, rich heritage colours and a large wood burning stove that nestles in the corner of the spacious open plan living room, where two large comfortable sofas will guarantee your supreme comfort and relaxation.

Separated from the living room by a useful breakfast bar the spacious kitchen is fully equipped to meet guest's ever need and to one side a separate dining space will guarantee family gatherings are a real social occasion.

Three charming bedrooms on the first floor are each dressed in delicate country fabrics, both double rooms enjoy wonderful views of the valley to the front of the barn.

A family bathroom on the first floor and a shower room on the ground floor complete this uniquely wonderful property.

In summer relax on the patio overlooking the valley, many find that this is the epitome of their holiday at this beautiful cottage.

For those who can tear themselves away and wish to explore, the beautiful village of Dulverton in the heart of Exmoor has a great range of shops, pubs and restaurants and is just a ten minute car journey.

Less than an hour will take you to the cathedral city of Exeter or north to the coastal beaches of Saunton Sands, Braunton, Wollacombe and Croyde.

South Molton, just fifteen minutes away has a twice weekly market, fine butchers, chemist and a supermarket.

There are some fine restaurants and pubs in the area where local produce is always on the menu, try the London Inn at Molland for mouth watering home cooked food, or for a special occasion the Michelin star The Masons Arms at Knowstone, serves real ale to champagne by the glass.

The owners of Dunsley Mill are happy to arrange horse riding lessons, fishing and restaurant bookings for guests.

There is plenty of parking next to the cottage.

About the location

EAST ANSTEY

Dulverton 4 miles; Tiverton 13 miles.

The village of East Anstey lies in the heart of beautiful unspoilt countryside, four miles from the picturesque market town of Dulverton. Known as the gateway to Exmoor, Dulverton offers the River Barle, which flows under a Grade I listed, 3000 year old stone clapper bridge. The town also boasts pretty buildings and medieval winding streets, along with a wealth of award winning restaurants and pubs, quality gift shops and tea rooms. The spectacular North Devon coast is within driving distance with the picturesque villages of Lynton and Lynmouth well worth visiting. Spend a day at the wonderful sandy beaches of Croyde Bay, Woolacombe and Saunton Sands, all of which provide fabulous opportunities for surfing. East Anstey is an ideal base to explore the magnificent rolling landscapes of Exmoor and the dramatic North Devon coastline.

Note: This property sleeps a maximum of 6 people including infants.
