Stylish Studio style property set on a small working farming on Exmoor, a great bolthole for couples to enjoy some peace and yet easy to explore the whole county.

Take a couple of canine companions with you to this romantic retreat in Challacombe, right in the heart of magnificent Exmoor. Set on a working farm, the exquisite studio holiday home is the perfect base for a holiday in Devon. Accommodating one couple, plus one or two hounds, the property is well located for superb moorland, woodland and country walks, as well as for outings to the coast.

Arrive at this appealing property and unload your luggage, holiday equipment and four-legged friends alike into its bright, open-plan interior. Find the enticing space, with its high, vaulted ceiling, slate flooring and revealed timbers, has been designed with everyone’s comfort in mind. Let your dogs find their bearings then settle them down in front of the wood-burner-effect fire, while you make yourself a fresh cup of coffee and prepare their dinner. Whip up something tasty for yourselves too and dine together at the table if you choose. Watch the Smart TV for a while before retiring to bed and laying your own heads in the super-king-size bed. There is also a shower room, with WC, and an outside terrace with the property. Soak up the sun out here with the pups before heading off on a long walk. Find parking for one car.

Pull on your boots, pick up the leads and choose any number of routes to follow from the front door. Walk the 6.5-mile circular route, for example, over the moorlands of Challacombe Common and past a medieval motte and bailey castle. Venture further afield to pick up a section of the South West Coast Path, from Malmsmead, 15 miles away, then embark upon a 4.5-mile walk, through National Trust land and landscapes described by R.D. Blackmore in his novel Lorna Doone.

The Studio was just outside the village of Challacombe but within walking distance. with a pub in the village which has great food.. It was peaceful with lovely views from the front of the Studio. We couldn't have been made more welcome. It was situated within easy access to most of the North of Devon/Somerset.

Lovely little getaway. Quiet location, well equipped and modern. Lovely views and owners were lovely. There are 2 rental properties next to each other but we were not disturbed by the others, making a very peaceful break. Property is fairly remote and although the pub and shop are walkable, be aware this is along a national road with no footpath. 3Read more0 mins to both barnstaple and the coastal resorts.

A lovely, little place. Very clean and well equipped . Such a beautiful, peaceful area and the host family are amazing. My only warning would be that it isnt completely suitable if you have a bouncy pup or a wandering doggy. It was lovely & hot but we couldnt keep our door open because of a very bouncy lab! No boundary fence and no private garden
