The cottage's flexible accommodation and large enclosed garden make it perfect for families and small groups of friends. It would also suit those with limited mobility as there are two double bedrooms downstairs with two single bedrooms upstairs.

There is also a village green with swings and a stream. There is loads to do in the area - enjoy beautiful walks and cycle routes right from the door, visit the historic clapper bridge at Tarr Steps and paddle in the River Barle, have a day at the beach, visit nearby National Trust properties Arlington Court, Knightshayes Court and Dunster Castle or spend the day at Exmoor Zoo, sit out under the stars in Europe's first Dark Sky Reserve or simply relax in the garden or by the fire and enjoy the peace.

Please note that dogs are not allowed upstairs, in any of the bedrooms or on the furniture. Please bring your own dog bed and towels.

About the neighbourhood
Walking There are loads of beautiful walks and cycle routes in the area for all ages and abilities, including several straight from the door.
