The village of East Anstey lies in the heart of beautiful unspoilt countryside, four miles from the picturesque market town of Dulverton. Known as the gateway to Exmoor, Dulverton offers the River Barle, which flows under a Grade I listed, 3000 year old stone clapper bridge. The town also boasts pretty buildings and medieval winding streets, along with a wealth of award winning restaurants and pubs, quality gift shops and tea rooms. The spectacular North Devon coast is within driving distance with the picturesque villages of Lynton and Lynmouth well worth visiting.

A group of four wonderful holiday lodge apartments set in the grounds of the Grade II listed Knapp House Estate 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.

Mr Durrant, York, August 2012
The property was in a quiet and peaceful location with easy access to Exmoor and the coast. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable and we received a pleasant welcome with a tray of tea/coffee and home backed scones. The owners are very thoughtful and we enjoyed our stay at Kestrel Lodge.
