10 Brushford

Dulverton, Somerset

A sweet escape for a country-loving couple (plus baby) with charming owners next door who welcome you with eggs, herbs & veg from the garden


1 bed


2 bedrooms


Sleeps 2


You get the best of both worlds in this small, stone cottage at the wooded edge of the village; rustic-chic downstairs, with underfloor heating and a big tub in the bathroom, and soft luxury upstairs, with a sumptuous king-size bed and a separate reading room/space to put a babe-in-arms. Nicky, a charming potter, and builder/photographer David live next door; their workshops, pond, chickens and veg plot are across the lane and you’re welcome to fresh eggs, herbs and vegetables. You’ve a flowery strip of garden with chairs to catch the setting sun, and straight through the front door a snug sitting room: wood-burner, ‘hessian’ covered sofa, leather armchair. The little wraparound kitchen, with wooden units and smart kit, is at the foot of the oak stairs – mind your head! The mood upstairs is serene, with pale colours, butterfly prints above the padded headboard, sheepskin rugs and cupboards cleverly fitted around the chimney. There are so many thoughtful, decorative touches in things old and new, like mirrors, ornaments, fabrics and flowers. Dulverton’s pubs and shops are close and Exmoor is to the North.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Nicky Harland

  • The area is a dark sky reserve; the only place in England to be awarded a special protected status for its night sky. Why not drive up on to Exmoor and watch shooting stars over the sea – don’t forget the hot chocolate and blankets!
  • Wander along the lane and watch wild deer at dusk or a Sunday morning stroll along the river Barle for papers and coffee in Dulverton is a dream. Dogs are welcome and there are numerous walks of different lengths straight from your front door.
  • Outdoor activities abound, whether it be mountain biking, riding, shooting, kayaking, sailing, coasteering, treeclimbing – Exmoor offers them all! Come home exhausted to the luxury of your very own boutique cottage retreat.
  • The glorious beaches along the coast offer the perfect chill out or if culture is your thing visit Dunster with its medieval castle or Knighthayes, Killerton and Arlington Court. For the gardeners, RHS Rosemore and Hestercombe are close by.
  • Fancy learning to fly fish. There is plenty of opportunity on the rivers nearby. Exmoor is well known for its fishing. Just a phone call away.
  • Some say the Devil built the ancient clapper bridge at Tarr Steps and that he promised to kill anyone who attempted to cross! Exmoor has inspired writers, artists and poets – Shelley, Coleridge, R D Blackmore’s "Lorna Doone" and recently Hope Bourne.
