  • "The whole weekend was a success in every way, we all loved the house and wished we could have had a longer stay."

    Mr WinnOct 2021

  • "Wonderful house in a beautiful village."

    Beautiful walks right from the house and just down the hill to great shops and pubs. Very steep hill up to the house but plenty parking in the village if you couldn’t walk it!

    Miss StirrattJun 2021

  • "What a fabulous house."

    The owners have thought of everything, from entertaining children to occupying the adults should the weather be bad. We were lucky the weather was fab the whole week.

    Mr HazledineJun 2021

  • "A fabulous big, old property that has been tastefully restored with everything you need and lovely views over the village."

    Game tables plus board games are great for rainy days. Dulverton is a friendly, thriving village with shops & pubs all an easy walk down the hill & a good workout walking back up. You don’t need to go anywhere else as the shops cater for all you need & there are walks starting from near the house. But there is also lots of lovely places nearby to visit too.

    Mrs UnsworthMay 2021

  • "The Mount had a lovely atmosphere it was very well renovated and equipped."

    We particularly appreciated the welcome gifts. The location is excellent for exploring both locally and further afield. Dulverton was areal delight providing for all our requirements and the people could not have been more friendly.

    Mr Johnston-smithSep 2020

  • "An excellent house that was well prepared in readiness for us - clean, tidy and well equipped."

    Lovely location.

    Mr RobertsSep 2020

  • "Beautiful house with a stunning outlook."

    Spent a lovely few days here and it was everything we could have hoped for. The owners even provided a room full of games to make sure our evenings were anything but quiet ! Would definitely come back.

    Mr LowSep 2020

  • "Simple: the house and the location."

    Mr EversonAug 2019

  • "Apart from it being a very rainy week when we stayed at the Mount, we all thoroughly enjoyed staying there."

    There were the games rooms in the basement, and huge amounts of toys, books and puzzles to keep all ages occupied whilst in the house. The views over Dulverton were wonderful and it only took a few minutes drive to get to the moors and experience the great scenery. There were nine of us staying in the house and it was large enough to get lost in, or have a quiet moment in one of the many rooms, certainly no feelings of overcrowding! Everything within the house had been very well thought out by the owners to make it comfortable.

The property

This detached Victorian house is situated high on the hill above Dulverton, along a steep drive at the end of a lane.

With wonderful views and elegant style, it is excellent accommodation for families or friends, in any weather.

Over three storeys, you enter through the hall on the ground floor, which leads you into the charming sitting room for relaxing on the chaise longue or comfy sofas beside the wood burning stove in a marble fireplace.

You have the benefit of an additional family sitting room with another lovely wood burning stove, leading through an arch to your dining room, where you can enjoy meals prepared in the well equipped kitchen, complete with old fashioned pantry.

For quiet time, head into the study with its desk.

On the lower ground floor is a fun games room with Wii, table tennis and table football.

The five bedrooms are found up the stairs, two of the doubles boasting views over the town.

Beyond your parking area you enjoy the same brilliant views from your lawn garden with table and chairs.

Dulverton’s good shops and pubs are within easy reach, and with this being the centre of the Exmoor National Park, you are surrounded by marvellous countryside to walk, cycle or ride.

If you prefer to take it easy, the drive through woods to the heather hills is lovely.

Tarr Steps is an historic beauty spot and the beach at Minehead offers traditional seaside fun.

The Mount is a spacious and friendly house to enjoy with lots to see and do all around.

About the location


Minehead 17 miles.

Dulverton is the southern gateway to the Exmoor National Park, a small town standing between the rivers Barle and Exe, which meet further down the valley. Dulverton has some quaint narrow streets weaving between fine Victorian buildings and a three arched bridge crossing the river leading to riverside walks. There are plenty of shops, restaurants and pubs in Dulverton and in the square is the Exmoor National Park visitor centre and art gallery, offering plenty of inspiration for exploring the vast expanse of the moor on foot, on horseback or from behind the wheel. Why not try an off road safari around Exmoor to see red deer, wild ponies and rare birds? Exmoor has been designated as a Dark Sky Reserve, where the light pollution is low and plenty of stargazing can be done. Near to Dulverton is the majestic lake at Wimblewall Country Park, the first Dark Skies Discovery Centre on Exmoor. Wimblewall is also a premier trout fishing location, and provides tuition in numerous water sports, including sailing, windsurfing and canoeing. Further afield the North Somerset coastline has sandy beaches at Minehead, picturesque harbours and plenty of wild walking around Porlock Weir. A fabulous holiday destination for all those enjoying outdoor activities, dramatic landscapes and wildlife.
