  • “Clock House was a lovely property to live in, it had adequate facilities, unfortunately the Aga cooker was on constantly causing the kitchen to be very warm, a radiator in the upstairs bedroom was on constantly causing the room to be very hot, as we had very warm weather.”

    We also had problems with flies loads of flies in all rooms, we used two cans of fly spray. I had tried to contact the caretaker on 2 occasions without success. We would not return as the property was quite a distance from any shops, pub and entertainment. To get any resort you had to travel for 45 mins.

The property

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.

Although the garden is enclosed with a clear boundary, it is not dog proof.

Supervision with pets may be required, especially when the adjacent fields contain livestock.

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.

About the location


Dulverton 4 miles; Tiverton 13 miles.

The village of East Anstey lies in the heart of beautiful unspoilt countryside, four miles from the picturesque market town of Dulverton. Known as the gateway to Exmoor, Dulverton offers the River Barle, which flows under a Grade I listed, 3000 year old stone clapper bridge. 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. Spend a day at the wonderful sandy beaches of Croyde Bay, Woolacombe and Saunton Sands, all of which provide fabulous opportunities for surfing. East Anstey is an ideal base to explore the magnificent rolling landscapes of Exmoor and the dramatic North Devon coastline.
