This delightful detached cottage is located on the foot slopes of Dunkery Beacon at Exmoor’s highest point. Enjoy superb scenery and walking on the South West Coastal Path or the national park itself.
This charming property sleeps four guests and two dogs. Right in the heart of Exmoor, you can escape the humdrum of everyday life and soak up the breathtaking views across open fields. In every direction you’ll find interesting walks, with plenty for your furry companions to sniff and explore, and you’ll be within easy reach of some of Exmoor’s finest attractions, such as Tarr Steps and Dunster, as well as the picturesque villages of Lynton and Lynmouth.
On a cool night you can get cosy in the lounge, and the dogs can doze in front of the wood burner. Or, on a summer’s evening, throw open the stable door and take in the far-reaching views. There are two steps down to the kitchen/diner, where you can all sit around the table to plan your day’s adventures. Hard floors throughout downstairs make cleaning up pawprints easy. Outside, there’s a beautiful enclosed garden and you’ll also find a decked area with seating, to sit back and relax after a day on the moor. There’s an outdoor hose and sink for washing muddy paws and, should you need it, a kennel and run.
You’ll not be disappointed by the amount on offer nearby. Just 9 miles away, in Minehead, you can pick up the beginning of the 630-mile South West Coast Path. The section from Minehead towards Porlock takes you through fascinating woodlands, cliffs and farm tracks. After a long walk, take a welcome rest in The Old Ship Aground, which boasts fabulous views across Minehead harbour. The historic village of Dunster (8.6 miles away) also makes a great day out. Your furry friends are welcome in the grounds of the castle and there are some wonderful dog-friendly eateries, including The Stags Head Inn.
