Syms Cottage is a traditional period cottage on the fringe of Cutcombe sleeping up to 4 guests in two double bedrooms. The property is well suited for couples and those wanting to take advantage of the excellent opportunities for walking in the open spaces of Exmoor National Park, particularly the slopes of the moor towards Dunkery Beacon and the lovely river valleys. The cottage is full of character, boasting a date stone marked 1831, and enjoys superb far reaching views to the rear across the neighbouring farmland. The front door leads into a small entrance porch providing useful space for boots and coats.

The property is well suited for couples and those wanting to take advantage of the excellent opportunities for walking in the open spaces of Exmoor National Park, particularly the slopes of the moor towards Dunkery Beacon and the lovely river valleys. The cottage is full of character, boasting a date stone marked 1831, and enjoys superb far reaching views to the rear across the neighbouring farmland. The front door leads into a small entrance porch providing useful space for boots and coats. The cottage-style kitchen has a small dining table to seat 4, and to the rear is a pantry where the fridge is situated. The sitting room features a large inglenook fireplace with exposed stone, bread oven and wood-burning stove. The bathroom is situated off the sitting room (via a lobby area) and is comprised of a bath with electric shower over, hand basin and toilet. The wooden stairs lead up to the two double bedrooms. The master bedroom has fabulous views across the valley and surrounding farmland to the rear of the property. Please note, this is an old cottage and some of the doorways, including the front door, are of limited height. The wooden floors are old and in places, not very flat which provides character but please take care not to trip. Also, mobile phone signal on Exmoor can vary from good to non-existent. Orange seems to provide the best network coverage in Wheddon Cross area, but we cannot guarantee you will obtain a signal from any provider. The kitchen appliances include fridge (freezer compartment), small oven with three electric rings on the hob and a microwave. Other equipment includes 4 slice toaster, kettle, a variety of cookware, kitchen utensils, cutlery, crockery and glasses. The living room has a 4k television (40inch screen with wifi and Freesat), and BT Infinity broadband is available throughout the property at no extra cost. A hairdryer is also provided for your convenience. Bed linen, duvets, and towels are provided, but please bring your own beach towels if you wish to take towels with you on day trips. Electricity and heating costs are included in the price of the accommodation. Syms Cottage is fitted with night storage heaters plus wood-burner in the sitting room which can provide significant extra heat, if required. Some logs, kindling and matches will be provided to get you started, further logs can be purchased locally. Tea, coffee, milk, and small biscuits or cake will be in the cottage for your arrival so you can enjoy a cuppa straight away. Some non-perishable items including salt, pepper and oil will be provided. Cleaning materials such as washing-up liquid and surface cleaner will be present in the property. One or two toilet rolls will be provided. To the front of Syms Cottage is a small courtyard area with bistro table, two chairs and a wooden bench. Free on-road parking is available directly opposite Syms Cottage. Dog/s are welcome by prior arrangement (maximum of one medium size dog or two small dogs). A supplementary fee of £15 will be added to your invoice. Please do not allow your dogs on the furniture or upstairs and do not leave them alone in the property at any time. Larger dogs may be considered, please do not hesitate to ask. This property is strictly non-smoking.More

Lovely comfy base from which to explore Exmoor. Good hiking nearby and within easy walking distance of a pub serving food. First time we've ever been to a dog-friendly cottage where bowl, towel and poop bags have been provided for our four legged friend.

When we first walked through the door, i was disappointed. But then, i gave my head a shake, and started to appreciate it. It's tiny, but that was all we needed. Two reasonable bedrooms up, and a good couch on main floor. Kitchen is tiny,...More

Syms Cottage is a little gem! Having our accommodation double booked elsewhere we were left stranded but the agent managed to get us this cottage last minute for four nights. Very quaint and characteristic being built in 1831, like stepping back in time, no fusty...More
