The property

The Old Quarry is a unique, almost magical holiday home just half a mile from the town centre of Wiveliscombe, on the edge of the stunning Exmoor National Park.

This exquisite, detached, log cabin nestles in a secluded location in its very own woodland area.

Your only neighbours are birds, squirrels, a few inquisitive rabbits and the occasional deer - you can keep an eye on all the comings and goings via a live camera feed from an owl box to the TV.

The Old Quarry has full heating and a wood burning stove, making it wonderfully warm and cosy throughout the year.

The living space is smart and open plan, and once inside, all on one level (a separate entrance to the cabin has a ramp for easy access).

Three pretty bedrooms at the rear of the cabin share the family bathroom.

On balmy summer evenings, the veranda is a perfect place to relax and look out over the fairytale surroundings.

There is also a gazebo with a picnic table, benches and a stone built BBQ.


Ground Floor: Open Plan Lounge/Kitchen/Diner. Bedroom 1 with double bed. Bedroom 2 with twin beds. Bedroom 3 with single bed. Shower Room with shower, WC and washbasin.

About the location


Taunton 11 miles.

Known affectionately as Wivey, this historic market town is set in wonderful surroundings on the edge of Exmoor, in the Brendon Hills. This is a perfect centre from which to set out on outdoor pursuits; from fishing for trout on the peaceful waters of Clatworthy Reservoir or Wimbleball Lake, horse-riding at a number of stables in the area or simply taking a long walk through the idyllic countryside on well-signed paths. There are several excellent independent shops in Wiveliscombe including an award-winning butcher, antique shops, a gunsmith and the well known Court House, a striking three-storey independent shop that attracts visitors from far afield. The village is half an hour's drive from North Somerset's beaches, such as Blue Anchor Bay and, as the gateway to the Brendon Hills and Exmoor, an ideal base for walking and other pursuits in one of Britain's loveliest National Parks. The picturesque Exmoor towns of Dulverton and Bampton are within driving distance. A perfect holiday destination - peace coupled with good facilities and leisure pursuits.
