    “This could be a lovely cottage ...”

    This could be a lovely cottage however, some of it is tired and neglected. For example, water damaged wood panelling, stained and split kitchen lino. The front door frame was splintered by the top hinge, which could have caused a big problem. We tried to use the other door instead but the handle was broken therefore it could only be locked from the inside. We reported the split door frame first thing on Monday, as soon as we realised why the door was sagging, and this was atttended to as we ...

    This could be a lovely cottage however, some of it is tired and neglected. For example, water damaged wood panelling, stained and split kitchen lino. The front door frame was splintered by the top hinge, which could have caused a big problem. We tried to use the other door instead but the handle was broken therefore it could only be locked from the inside. We reported the split door frame first thing on Monday, as soon as we realised why the door was sagging, and this was atttended to as we were leaving. We wanted to use the payphone during our stay but it did not work and we reported this also. Other people had commented in the visitors book that the TV remote does not match the TV so does not work completely. The WiFi connection is intermittent. However, the kitchen is well equipped, the cottage characterful and the location idyllic.

The property

This detached cottage is situated in woods and countryside, in a rural spot 300 yards from the medieval bridge at Tarr Steps and a lane-mile from Hawkridge.

Light and airy, it is an excellent location for families or anyone who enjoys the great outdoors.

The large kitchen comes in true country style, with a breakfast table for morning coffee and the papers.

Snuggle up later around the open fire in the living room with its dining area, or throw open the French windows on a sunny day.

Steep stairs head up to three bedrooms on the first floor, or choose your room for a peaceful night from the two bedrooms at the very top of the house, under the eaves.

The enclosed garden is a very tranquil spot with views across to woodland where you may spot a red deer or two and the gentle sounds of birdsong and the nearby river.

You can arrange to fly fish for trout or salmon along seven miles of this river, together with tuition in fishing or shooting if you wish.

Nearby riding stables are the perfect opportunity for a canter across Exmoor’s heather hills.

With the River Barle valley to explore and spot wildlife in, this is an ideal spot for outdoor activities, or if beaches are more your thing, head to Porlock or the surf at Saunton, Woolacombe or Croyde.

For shops and restaurants, Dulverton is a fine old town with plenty to offer.

With such stunning surroundings, Barn Cottage is an exceptional location for a wonderful break.
