The property

This comfortable cottage is adjacent to the owner’s own 300 year-old home but with separate access, and set in a quiet location in the village of Bampton, east Exmoor.

This cosy cottage with its woodburner set in a large inglenook fireplace and wooden beamed living area makes it especially warm and welcoming for those winter evenings.

There is also a kitchen with breakfast bar in this open plan living area together with the flexibility of a double sofa bed.

With its spacious bedroom there is plenty of room for a travel cot and use of a laptop to plan your day’s activities.

For those sunny days why not sit back and relax on your private patio and enjoy a glass of something cool or enjoy that early morning coffee whilst overlooking the pretty gardens and enjoying the wildlife?

This lovely cottage is in a secluded location just five minutes’ walk to the amenities of the village and you are welcome to stroll around the lovely cottage-style garden with its vegetable patch, fish ponds and barbecue area.

This attractive cottage is ideally placed for Exmoor and Dartmoor and the scenic countryside of Mid Devon with the Somerset Levels being within easy reach.

A little further afield, you will find Dorset and Cornwall.

With endless walking and rambling on your doorstep and for those wishing to do some retail therapy, a visit to the historic city of Exeter is a must, makes this pleasant cottage an ideal base for couples of all ages, all-year-round.
