You can see for miles – across old English country and shapely hills to the wilds of Exmoor. Walks from the door pass through valleys and bluebell woods via great pubs dishing up good food. Return to an upside-down cottage muddy and ruddy after bike rides; bring your own or hire from the shop down the road – Matt and Jenny can point you in the right direction.
There’s space for two in the sociable kitchen where you can cook and chat together, eating outside on the balcony which is perfectly angled for the sun and the view. All the basics are waiting for you and there’s a generous hamper of milk, best bacon and bread for easy breakfasts. Spend evenings gazing up at a million-tog duvet of stars.
You’ll share the outside space with other cottages and shepherds’ huts at the farm, but it’s a short trip down the winding lanes to National Trust properties, villages and the moors.
