  • “Lovely quiet spot”

    - Chris, October 2021

The property

Tucked into a sheltered valley of Knighton Farm, yet surrounded by the dramatic scenery and charm of Exmoor, you will find Creenagh's Cottage.

his traditional farmstead has fishing rights on the River Barle and is home to cows, pigs sheep, alpacas, goats, geese and chickens all roaming the working farmland.

A well-kept mile-long track leads up to the retreat, a beautifully refurbished annexe to the owners’ farmhouse, with a quirky set-up and woodburning stove.

There is a lovely lounge overseeing the farmyard, with two steps up to a characterful dining area, whilst the delightful kitchen looks out over the heart-warming garden.

From morning through to night time, you can appreciate this home-away-from-home, somewhere unique for you and your loved one to relax in style.

Continue through the property where you will also discover a shower room located on the ground floor.

The upper level is your own little space to enjoy in the evening, a king-size bedroom with lovely features, including a dressing table, sloping ceiling, and exposed beams to the side, encompassing the whole first floor.

Outside is a sheltered patio and large enclosed garden ideal for dog owners, or just some peace and quiet amidst the peaceful surround.

Within moments you can be in the midst of the wonderful wide open space above the farm taking in the panoramic views.

For outings further afield why not try the market town of Dulverton?

the medieval town of Dunster with its castle, and Porlock where Exmoor meets the sea and where you will have to experience the famous Porlock Hill.

Delicious home-cooked meals and produce from the farm can be purchased from the Owners.

A precious retreat for two.
