    “We loved barn cottage and would return.”

    Highlights: The position of the cottage was 10/10 -right by the Tarr steps and so quiet. Could not have picked a better spot. If people love wild life then this is the cottage for them! All you can hear from the cottage are the sounds and sights of nature which is a refreshing change. The cottage is secluded but not as secluded as some have stated as there is a pub 2 mins over the Tarr steps and a few houses located very near ( we could not hear any noise from the houses).

    Highlights: The position of the cottage was 10/10 -right by the Tarr steps and so quiet. Could not have picked a better spot. If people love wild life then this is the cottage for them! All you can hear from the cottage are the sounds and sights of nature which is a refreshing change. The cottage is secluded but not as secluded as some have stated as there is a pub 2 mins over the Tarr steps and a few houses located very near ( we could not hear any noise from the houses). The cottage was so clean and appreciated that . Negatives were that the cottage's heating was set by the owner and was cold when we entered the property. There was a box of logs that we topped up from the forest so it would have been nicer to have more logs. When we tried to contact the named person the number did not connect so unsure if that number is still correct. Think if an older couple stayed here they may have struggled with the temperature as we were not able to adjust heating. I suppose the solution would be to extend the hours of the heating or supply more logs. As other people have mentioned there is no welcome pack however appreciate that these are currently tough times for people and did appreciate the milk that was left for us. I forgot my hair dryer which I never normally do but there was not one that I could find in the house. In all cottages where I have stayed there was a hairdryer so that would have been useful. When we had a BBQ it was very nice of the owners to supply the coal etc but there was no tin foil to hand so this would have also been useful. All being said I would definitely book Barn cottage again and the positives very much outweighed the negatives and I am already looking in the diary to see when I can return. We both had a lovely time at Barn cottage and loved Exmoor.

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.

Dulverton is the southern gateway to the Exmoor National Park, a small town standing between the rivers Barle and Exe, which meet further down the valley.
