The property

Brompton Regis 4 miles.

This attractive, semi-detached stone cottage is situated on the shores of Wimbleball Lake, near the picturesque village of Brompton Regis, in the Exmoor National Park.

In a tranquil, rural setting, accompanied by the gentle sound of the lake and the birds overhead, this cottage has marvellous views across the peaceful water.

The cottage is attached to the owners' home on their 17-acre smallholding and has been beautifully modernised to provide cosy accommodation of a high standard, with antique pine furniture and country furnishings.

The sitting room has a large stone fireplace and a woodburning stove, along with comfy sofas that you can sink into after a day on the lake.

The kitchen is well equipped and leads into a small dining area off the hallway while upstairs, there is a king-size double bedroom with an original Edwardian fireplace and two single bedrooms, one of which houses a four poster bed.

The beauty of the cottage is the grounds, with a lawn that gently slopes down to the shores of Wimbleball Lake, making a peaceful spot to relax in the sunshine, or star gaze on clear nights.

Walk or cycle around the lake and finish with a cream tea in the lakeside café, take a short drive to the village pub, or enjoy some antique shopping in nearby Dulverton.

Bring your canoe and go for a trip on this amazing 400-acre lake, or try sailing and windsurfing at the nearby lakeside club.

The soft green and dramatic landscape of the Exmoor National Park is right on your doorstep, providing you with beautiful walking and horse riding trails to explore.

In Somerset, you can always be assured of plenty of shops selling local produce, traditional pubs and quaint villages with a slow pace of life, including Lynton, Lynmouth and Porlock on the North Somerset coastline.

The village has a friendly, 16th century pub and a village shop, while just down the road, Wimbleball Lake is a beautiful, 400-acre reservoir with an activity centre for yachtsmen, canoeists and anglers. For ramblers, there are many local walks that take you around the village, the lake, through Storridge Woods, or up and around Haddon Hill, all of which provide some truly stunning scenery! Similarly, for horse riders there are many bridleways that enable you to keep away from the roads and where you can enjoy the peace and quiet of this beautiful area, interrupted only by the sounds of the countryside. Exmoor is a wonderful place to get away from it all and relax.
