  • "Red Deer Cottage provided us with an extremely comfortable Christmas break after we had been let down by a booking at another property."

    The furnishings, decorations and welcome pack made our Christmas feel really homely. The view from the property was outstanding even in the winter. All of us (three adults and our two Labradors) settled in really quickly and we were sad to leave. We would have liked to be able to go out on dog walks directly from the property but the reasonable weather allowed us to be able to visit Dunster and Minehead beaches which were only a short drive away and enjoyed by the pooches. We would recommend Red Deer Cottage to anyone looking for a quiet break. It is very remote but beaches, pubs and villages are only a short drive.

    Thank you for your lovely review. I am delighted to read that you loved your Christmas stay with us. Exmoor is still very beautiful in the winter, its my personal favourite time to watch the wildlife out on the moors. We all hope to welcome you back again in the future.

The property

Wheddon Cross 1.1 miles.

Enjoying a peaceful location in the heart of the Exmoor National Park, just outside the village of Wheddon Cross, rests this delightful barn conversion.

Red Deer Cottage is well-equipped for a family break, and with the tranquil countryside right on your doorstep, the cottage offers a real paradise away from normal life.

After a long day of rambling the luscious outdoors, kick off your walking boots and find the open-plan living space, where you can sink into the settee whilst catching up on your favourite shows.

Rustle up a feast in the kitchen, assisted by the electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and even a dishwasher, so you won’t have to lift a finger when it comes to washing up!

Serve your culinary treats at the dining table or take the evening outside as you relax upon the outdoor furniture, sipping on a glass of fizz whilst you soak up the peaceful surroundings.

As the night grows darker, retire to the bedrooms to catch some rest; the master bedroom features a king-size bed and lovely balcony, providing a splendid overlook of the rural surroundings, along with an en-suite bathroom where you can pamper for the day.

There is also a double bedroom and bathroom upstairs, whilst a shower room and twin bedroom complete the downstairs, providing plenty of options.

Get to know your surroundings better by hiking Dunkery Beacon and Webbers Post or cycle through the rugged terrains of Blagdon Wood.

The village of Wheddon Cross is home to a welcoming pub where you can enjoy a hearty meal after a wild ramble, plus there is a general store selling own-label goods and fresh produce.

Visit the nearby town of Dunster, offering hours of adventure including Dunster Castle with history displayed in angelic gardens, the Old Mill and Castle itself.

Uncover the monastery of Cleeve Abbey, or visit the harbour town of Watchet to explore the Watchet Harbour Lighthouse, or head further afield and find many alluring beaches along the South West Coastal Path, including the bustling seaside town of Minehead where there is a promenade with a selection of fish and chip shops and ice cream stands.

Gather the family together for a memorable getaway at Red Deer Cottage..

Note: This property has a refundable Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Dulverton 9.5 miles; Minehead 10 miles; Barnstaple 29 miles.

Wheddon Cross is a small village in the heart of Exmoor National Park, a thriving rural community with village shop, friendly pub and an all-weather court which is available for many sports including tennis, netball and basketball. Nearby is the picturesque village of Exford, situated in the heart of the Exmoor National Park. In a lovely 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. Exford is at the centre of a walkers' paradise with many miles of waymarked paths down the Exe and River Barle valleys and up to the nearby hills, including Dunkery Beacon, the highest point on Exmoor, with outstanding views over 17 counties. Exford is renowned for fishing and riding, with the village hosting a horse show every August. The largest herd of wild red deer in England and Exmoor’s unique wild ponies roam the moors just above and around Exford, as they have done since the time of the Domesday Book. A lovely area to explore on your holiday. Further afield: Lynton & Lynmouth (Watersmeet Gorge (National Trust), Valley of the Rocks & Cliff Railway). North Devon Coast (Clovelly, Ilfracombe, Barnstaple, etc). North Devon Coast - sandy surfing beaches (Woolacombe, Croyde Bay, Putsborough, Saunton Sands etc).
