Head down the lane to this Exmoor farmhouse snoozing in the Exe valley. It’s a home with a heart – Jackie and Michael have created a friendly, relaxed vibe and are past masters at restoring houses. Find window seats in every room, pots of flowers, beautiful fabrics and art. The sitting room is snug with comfy chairs by the wood-burner; bedrooms and bathrooms are inviting: good white linen, big towels, robes and views over the garden and hills. Tuck into an Aga breakfast round the polished table in the beamed dining room, simple suppers too. Characterful ponies add to the happy feel, there’s a suntrap terrace and you can walk from the door onto Exmoor.
