Attractive cottage situated on the owner’s farmland with resident chickens and pigs, surrounded by idyllic woodlands, and within a short drive of Exmoor National Park.

Lift your spirits with a romantic getaway in this eco haven. A secluded hideaway close to the Devon and Somerset border, this gorgeous cottage for two plus dog provides rest and relaxation with a green conscience. Spend hours exploring the beautiful countryside nearby and let your dog feel like a puppy again discovering lots of exciting new scents to follow and sticks to carry. Once you have walked all you can walk, clean off muddy paws and feet and unwind in your private abode.

With soft, neutral themes splashed with playful colours and patterns, this eco-friendly property radiates comfort. Stepping inside, you are immediately met with a warm ambience and stunning views. Light floods into the lounge/kitchen/diner from the double doors, and in winter a wood burner casts an amber glow. Served by solar panels, the property also has a private log boiler for hot water. Outside, the seating area is an idyllic spot to enjoy your morning coffee or tuck into some lunch whilst your canine chum gnaws on a tasty treat. At the end of an adventure-packed day, a king-size bed awaits two-legged guests, ready to lull you into a deep and restful sleep.

Set within 24 acres of grounds in the Exe Valley, potential is all around for walks in the fresh, country air. Don your boots, grab a lead and head out to enjoy the area. Hop onto the Exe Valley Way to wander part of its 45-mile stretch, surrounded by rich woodland and diverse wildlife. 4 miles away, Exmoor National Park is definitely worth a visit, boasting wild swathes of achingly beautiful hills and moorland. Just 3 miles away, Bampton town is home to lots of pubs, cafes and shops. Here you will also find Bampton Castle Motte, originally built by the Saxons.

Great little cottage to spend time peacefully in the country. Lovely views and sitting in the sunshine on the patio was very relaxing. There were good walks and good restaurants nearby with very pleasant staff.

A very comfortable cottage in a beautiful, peaceful location. It was lovely to be able to walk the dog in the cool woods every morning, especially as we were so lucky with the warm and sunny weather. We had everything we needed and it was an excellent base from which to explore the area. It was very pleasant to be able to sit outside in the eveningRead more looking over the field with only the sound of the owls in the woods. Hide

We stayed here last September and enjoyed ourselves so much we came back in June. Perfect base to explore the area and nicely tucked away for a quiet, serene holiday. Our dog Sam loved it too.

Set in stunning farm land and surrounded by woodland we've had a very relaxing break. The bed is super comfortable, the fire place cosy and the private patio / garden a big bonus. We were welcomed with some goodies, including bread from a local bakery and fresh eggs. The owner and their dog greeted us and we felt right had home. There is plenty to Read moredo, from local walks to e.g. Oakford, a pub visit in Bampton or a day trip to Saunton Sands. Can only recommend staying in this beautiful cottage. Hide

Lovely cosy comfortable warm cottage with a nice location. For our 2 dogs (lurchers) it was perfect as we were able to use the owners completely fenced in large field, and a dog friendly pub a few minutes drive away. Fully recommend and would return. The Ganges Indian restaurant in Tiverton delivered for a small fee even though its around 20 minuteRead mores away and the Chip shop in Bampton is good quality and a short drive away. Hide
