Knapp House Cottages

A group of four wonderful holiday lodge apartments set within two wings of the Grade II listed Knapp House on the outskirts of the village of East Anstey, four miles from the town of Dulverton, known as the gateway to Exmoor. These four purpose-built Dulverton cottages each have their own unique theme and offer quality accommodation. Guests are able to wander freely in the gardens behind the house and there are benches to relax and enjoy a picnic or a glass of bubbly. Knapp House is a beautiful example of a country house designed in the Arts and Crafts style and was built as a hunting lodge in 1907. These Dulverton cottages provide a tranquil retreat from which to explore Exmoor, one of Britainís greenest National Parks. The National Park has a wealth of pretty villages and walks in open unspoilt countryside. There are National Trust properties and gardens locally, plus sandy beaches with good surfing available at Woolacombe and Croyde Bay. Taking a ride on the cliff railway at the picturesque villages of Lynton and Lynmouth is essential. There is excellent fishing, horse riding and shooting in the area or you may just wish to relax in a village pub with a Devon cream tea or a pint of ale.

An excellent property, one of the best we have ever used. Friendly and helpful owners who made sure all our specific requirements were met. Excellent parking and very quiet. An ideal rural retreat. We highly recommend this property.

Mr Heinrich, Winchester, December 2013

The property was warm and cosy, and the attention to detail was impressive. The owners of the property were very helpful but non intrusive. A great place to stay.

Mrs Baulcombe, Kenilworth, October 2013

The property was of an excellent standard.

Mr Horn, Retford, October 2013

Hunters Lodge was an excellent base from which to explore Devon/Somerset/Exmoor. The drive up to the house is extremely impressive as the grounds are stunning. It had a very welcoming and homely atmosphere which meant that my husband and I, and our daughter, settled in immediately. The facilities were very good and they, along with the warm and friendly nature of the hosts, helped to make our experience of staying there a very comfortable and memorable one. We would highly recommend Hunters Lodge to anyone wishing to holiday in Devon.

Mrs Tallant, Dereham, August 2013
