The property

... 2 miles from Parracombe, in its own deep Exmoor valley with river rushing through oak woods and meadows to Hunters Inn and the sea at Heddon's Mouth, an 18th cent. farmhouse with integral indoor heated swimming pool (24' x 12' x 2’6" to 5' deep, available Easter school holidays to 31 October) surrounded by 10 acres of its own naturally beautiful grounds, including garden (barbecue), woods, orchard, the river, unfenced lakes (children beware), meadows and pathways. Lots of public footpaths, leading via woods and stream to dramatic cliff walks along Nat. Trust heritage coastline and to Heddon's Mouth.

The main part of the house is original; two wings were added later. Hall with cloakroom (loo); living room with huge inglenook (woodburner) and TV/DVD/video; step down to second living room with open fire, baby grand piano, oak floor, TV/DVD/video and French windows to terrace with wonderful views to the high moorland of Holdstone Hill and Trentishoe Down. Pretty fitted kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, two fridges, electric range with double oven) with farmhouse-style table/chairs seating 6 in centre. Boot room (freezer, fridge) with door to annexe (see below). Scullery (sink, washer-drier, tumble drier). Dining room with oak refectory table (seating 12 comfortably). Single bedroom (limited clothes-hanging space). Loo. Door to swimming pool.

Two steep staircases (stairgates) up to six more bedrooms, all with pretty views – the master double (5’ bed) with balcony, a double (5' bed) with washbasin, a double with single futon and washbasin, another double, and two twin rooms (one with limited clothes-hanging space). Three bathrooms (suites, one with shower over bath, two with separate showers).

Attached to and included with the house is Trout Cottage, a self-contained annexe for two, rather more modest (limited heating) with internal and external access to open-plan living/dining/kitchen (fridge, hob) and 6 steep steps down to a double bedroom with en suite shower-room (suite).

Open-fronted barn with table tennis. Spring water. Arrival after 3.30pm. Damages Deposit £500. A fabulous place with beautiful scenery for total seclusion, peace and quiet; no light pollution, wonderful night skies.

The place

Parracombe: tiny village (great pub, medieval church with famous Georgian interior, PO/shop, pottery) near Exmoor's dramatic coast in a valley midway between Lynton/Lynmouth, 8 miles, and Combe Martin, 6 miles. This is rugged, dramatic, deep-valleyed farming, wooded and moorland country: beautifully varied and unspoiled. Wide sandy beaches at Woolacombe and Croyde, about 15 miles.

A beautiful location and surroundings for our family, consisting of three generations. We had lovely walks in the grounds and the swimming pool was a real hit with all ages. The house was definitely big enough for a party of of 13 and we would recommend it to anyone wanting a big house in wonderful surroundings. Mr Frank Lee
