    “The clock house was fabulous with ...”

    The clock house was fabulous with great facilities, the gardens were a joy and enjoyed by us all especially our dog.

    The clock house was fabulous with great facilities, the gardens were a joy and enjoyed by us all especially our dog. It was a great base for exploring the North Devon coastline which we throughly enjoyed. This is my twelth year with helpful holidays and I was sad to hear they had merged with a large company-they were great as a family run business.

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.

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.
