This delightful detached cottage is located in the Exmoor National Park close to Dunkery Beacon Exmoor’s highest point. Enjoy superb scenery, wildlife and walking on the South West Coastal Path or the national park itself.

Enjoy the comfort of this delightful cottage at the heart of Exmoor National Park with your four-legged friend, swapping the stresses of modern life for spectacular scenery and complete solitude. Warmed throughout by underfloor heating and finished in a traditional country-cottage style, it’s perfect for up to six guests with two canine companions in tow. The handy location means that you could soon be scampering across the romantic wilderness of Exmoor, splashing through crystal-clear streams, meandering through ancient woodland, and scaling dramatic hills at leisure.

Accessed via a small ford, this detached cottage is as enchanting as it is cosy. Light the wood burner and relax in the lounge whilst supper cooks in the kitchen/diner, teasing the hound with the delicious smells wafting through. When it is time for bed, three gorgeous bedrooms are upstairs along with an elegant bathroom that boasts a fantastic roll-top bath. One of the bedrooms has the added treat of an en-suite shower room, and if you need additional sleeping spots the downstairs snug room has a sofa bed. Outside, the sunny patio is a haven for al fresco drinks, and there are steps leading down to an enclosed lawn bordering a stream. No need to worry about messy paws, there’s a utility room in the property that can be accessed through a separate door.

Clip-on Rover’s lead and let him sniff for rabbits as you hike up to Dunkery Beacon 5 miles away, or enjoy a waterside stroll around the Tarr Steps, which are a 5-mile drive in the opposite direction. Venturing further afield by 6 miles will bring you to charming Withypool, a village known for its pretty tearoom and unspoilt surroundings, but if you are in the mood for some retail therapy, the historic town of Dunster is just 8 miles away.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

This is a wonderful cottage in an idyllic location in a beautiful Exmoor valley. Superbly equipped, extraordinarily spacious and comfortable, it can only be described as luxury. Alison is a wonderful host, supportive, not intrusive and providing a raft of small but significant extras rarely found when renting a property. We will be back! Thank you.Read more Hide

On arrival we experienced the "wow" factor when entering the cottage. We were not disappointed as we progressed through the cottage, Everything exceeded our expectations. Exploring the estate was a delight and our host was more than helpful in looking after us. Will definitely visit again.

This cottage is absolutely stunning, it's more than luxury in our opinion, it's five star, it's the best we've ever stayed in, it is spotless and the furnishings and fittings are of a very exceptional high standard throughout - We did not feel that there was anything missing. The owner Alison was on hand 24/7 if you needed her if there was a probleRead morem, not that we encountered one. The extensive grounds that the property is situated within are also wonderful, very private and very secure. Hide
