3 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 6
Dulverton, Exmoor National Park, England
The Old School House, three bedroomed detached property situated on a quiet lane in Exton, a small hamlet in the beautiful Exe Valley, the heart of Exmoor. Offers cost comfortable accommodation, dog friendly with log burner, oil fired central heating, private garden, and off road parking. A peaceful haven with outstanding views across the valley.

The cottage is spotless but because we like our guests to relax and feel home from home it has a lived in feel. We don't want guests to worry if a child spills a drink or their dog rushes through the house with wet feet.

Therefore, if you are looking for prestige, 5 star luxury accommodation this is probably not the place for you!

This cosy little cottage was very welcoming - thanks for the cake and dog biscuits! It was very well equipped and a real bonus to have a log burner with some logs included. It is very dog friendly as the garden is enclosed and private. It is positioned very well for access to Exmoor, lovely pubs, walks and the beach...

We stopped at the Old School House in May for a long weekend, the cottage was well equipped and has plenty of character.There is a very nice local pub called the Badgers Hult,they serve lovely food and good local beers. The walk back to the cottage is up a narrow steep hill,so I do not think it would be suitable...
