  • "Wow..."

    .what a wonderful hidden gem, idyllic setting and so peaceful, we did not want to leave and will most definitely be returning soon. Lovely place to relax and unwind with so many places to explore and of course the beautiful coastal path walks and variety of national trust places did not disappoint. So much to do for everyone and our three dogs particularly loved all the streams/river walks and moors for plenty of exercise. Such a warm welcome with wonderful treats for both us and the dogs on arrival, stunning cottage with everything you could possibly need to enjoy the perfect stay, missing horses already....thank you xx

    Beautiful cottage with everything needed provided, amazing walks right from the accommodation through woodland paths along the river Barle to Withypool and Tarr steps. The host was really friendly and welcoming and provided some lovely treats on arrival, including fresh milk, homemade cake, wine and a doggy bag with treats and a toy for our 4 legged friend, very dog friendly. Enjoyed a swim in the pool and tbe river. Definitely worth a vist.

  • "To benefit us being able to book easily again I want to say we had a horrible time but that couldn't be further from the truth ."

    The property, location, owner and all staff were amazing. We had a taster menu of all weather but that did not distract from the restful time we had We made use of the pool after a day exploring. Happily recommend.

The village of Withypool has a remote, upland character and is surrounded by open moorland. Most of the village lies on the north side of the river and follows the narrow roads along the valley contours. The traditional buildings are wrapped in lime washed rendered stonewalls with slate roofs, adding to the sense of character. Within Withypool, there are the local general stores/Post Office, and tearooms. There are excellent short and long walks in and around this destination, including the Two Moors Way that passes through the village. One of the most popular walks is a four mile riverside stroll to Tarr Steps, with wonderful scenery. Close by, the picturesque village of Exford is situated in the heart of the Exmoor National Park. In a charming setting by the River Exe, Exford boasts a village green, tea rooms, a shop, Post Office and two traditional inns serving excellent food and drinks.
