Quaint 18 Century Old Farm Cottage. 1) Snug Room with a small double bed (4ft wide) & views towards hills to see deer & buzzards.
Entry is from the roadside through the old English kitchen into a small hallway.
The bathroom is on the ground floor and on occasion will be shared with the owner.
The staircase is narrow and winds it's way to the landing and your bedroom which has a view through the cottage roofs to the North Hill where deer can often be seen grazing.
Each room is unique in this quaint 300 year old cottage. Boasting of original oak flooring covered with carpet and pine doors. Light and cozy it also has the most fabulous fireplace large enough to walk up the inside as it still has the foot holds from when children used to be sent up the chimney to sweep it! Not something we do today ... of course!!
Guests are most welcome in the lounge to sit in front of the fire during the winter or to simply relax and 'upon request' to use the kitchen for making drinks light snacks. The 200 foot garden is South West facing so light and sunny and a new project with plants and shrubs, spring flowers, vegetable plot, outdoor privy and ancient pig sheds which are just being renovated. There are plans for lots of seating areas in the sun, shade and dappled light looking out towards the bay and Dunster folly. Deer and bird galore can be seen from both the cottage and garden so great for keen photographers or for those wishing to relax and unwind whether that be indoors or out. Please note the bathroom is on the ground floor.
Guests are most welcome to ask for assistance and advice on places to visit or things to do. Guided tours may be arranged to take in the local area of Exmoor.

It's fabulous living on Exmoor and in this beautiful conservation area enjoying long or short walks over hill and down dales, through streams and in ancient woodlands with my very friendly and lovable little dog Bounce. With a love for nature, wildlife, cooking, reading, gardening, theatre and cinema, I have found peace and adventure all in one spectacular place.
Sharing my home with guests brings another dimension to my life and it's great to enjoy hearing about the adventures of others and show guests around the area.
Any questions or advise you may need please let me know so I can make your stay here the best you ever had.
