This much-loved detached family house is located on the edge of East Anstey village.
Surrounded by a large garden, it is a lovely old house for enjoying country living.
Steps lead you up from the porch into your large, lofty sitting room which ranges over two levels and is a lovely room with wood burning stove in a magnificent inglenook and French windows.
The kitchen is true farmhouse style, complete with an Aga, dining table and chairs and a larder.
A step takes you down to three of the bedrooms and a garden room, another great room for sitting comfortably beside the wood burner, watching TV or wandering out through glass doors to the garden.
Stairs lead up to a gallery where you can select holiday reading from the bookshelves, and then through to two more bedrooms.
Outside is plenty of space in the two acre gardens to play ball games or croquet, spot wildlife around the unfenced pond or enjoy alfresco meals beside the barbecue.
The slow country pace of Exmoor is all around to enjoy, with eggs and meat available from nearby farms and the heather hills of Anstey Common to walk and seek the red deer.
Dulverton is a fine town with a range of shops and restaurants and the pub at Tarr Steps is a good place to visit after photographing the medieval bridge at this popular beauty spot.
The Clock House is a brilliant place to recharge your batteries and admire the beautiful surroundings.

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.
