  • "Fantastic location for access to Dulverton and surrounding area."

  • "The pictures online do not do the cottage justice - it really is absolutely lovely inside!"

    The heating was on when we arrived which made it very welcoming and everything was impeccably clean. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need except a microwave which is the only improvement the cottage could possibly make… that and lose the awful cow hide rug, it made our flesh crawl walking on it! All the beds were very comfy and the WiFi worked well, it was great having somewhere to park too. Maybe a mini ‘welcome pack’ with a few goodies from The Tantivy (local shop) wouldn’t have gone a miss, considering the cost of staying there… just a suggestion x

  • "The property is lovely & we really enjoyed our time here, there is high quality equipment throughout, the owners have thought of everything you could need ."

    Thanks for a great time The property is set on a road & the smell of diesel is present if the bedroom windows are open, also the shower room smells of damp however that said it is still a great place to stay The only other issue which does not reflect on the property is that there are not many eateries in the village therefore booking is advisable.

  • "It was a great place, positioned lovely ."

    Everything great in cottage, and would go back but however, we had loads of flies buzzing about and wood lice in one of the bedrooms . Not sure why… just kept spraying fly spray everyday - couldn’t work out why?

  • "Lovely clean and comfortable cottage with all mod cons, but surprisingly no microwave despite there being ample room."

    Great having 3 bathrooms so each couple had their own. Thankfully, we took spare loo rolls as there were no spares and one bathroom only had half a roll to start with. Would have appreciated a summer duvet with much lower tog value as very hot and we never managed to unlock/open the windows. Despite the minor grumbles we had a very enjoyable stay and would revisit.

The property

Situated in the small town of Dulverton, tucked on the fringes of the beautiful Exmoor National Park in Somerset, is this charming detached cottage.

The property has been completely renovated to provide an exceptional base for friends or families looking to escape to this wonderful part of Somerset.

Entering the property, you go into the boot room, with hooks to hang your coats and space to leave your muddy boots before stepping through to the contemporary dwelling.

Discover a large open-plan living space, with a kitchen wonderfully appointed to the front with quality grey units and sleek white worktops providing all the space you need to prepare some lovely home-cooked meals.

There is a dining area with ample seating for families to gather for an evening meal or a hearty breakfast whilst planning the day's events.

The sitting room has two large sofas where you can curl up under some blankets whilst the woodburning stove provides warmth for the winter months.

Those quieter evenings can be filled with a selection of provided DVDs, or some games for some family fun.

From here, there are four stairs leading up to a twin bedroom with a family bathroom adjacent to it, with the choice of a bath or shower over to prepare for your day in style.

Following the stairs up to the first floor, you will discover two king-size bedrooms, each with their own en-suite shower room as an added bonus.

Outside there is an enclosed courtyard where you can sit and unwind with a refreshing beverage or dine alfresco.

The town of Dulverton rests on the edge of the Exmoor National Park and hosts a selection of independent shops and supermarkets for all manner of amenities, as well as some pubs and restaurants if you don't fancy cooking one evening.

Exmoor National Park is home to a number of fascinating trails for walking, hiking or cycling opportunities and the area is recognised for its abundance of wildlife, including deer, otters, bats and dormice.

Tarr Steps, a medieval stone clapper bridge across the River Barle located 4 miles from Dulverton, is well worth a visit.

The Old Workshop is the place to be for sightseers interested in the area's rich history.

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.
