    This is a superb location , owners extremely friendly and welcoming.
    This is a superb location , owners extremely friendly and welcoming. Really cosy cottage but on a personal note we find the sofas to be uncomfortable as with the mattress in the main bedroom. Replacing both would make this a 10 out if 10 cottage.

The property

Surrounded by 30 acres of rolling hills and green countryside, Dunsley Mill is a lovingly restored country barn and the epitome of an English country cottage.

Standing at the base of a private lane, adjacent to the owners’ home, the cottage is positioned near the village of Dulverton, midway between the villages of East and West Anstey and on the fringes of Exmoor National Park.

For those seeking peace and tranquility and an opportunity to escape from the hustle and bustle of busy lives, this lovely cottage is sure to appeal.

Brimming with character, once over the threshold the history of this lovely cottage becomes evident, with exposed beams and stone walls, tastefully decorated in rich heritage shades.

A hallway with ground floor shower room to one side leads into a rich and cosy sitting room, open plan with a kitchen and dining area, divided by a useful breakfast bar.

A large woodburner sits in one corner to provide absolute cosiness in cooler months.

Three pretty, first floor bedrooms have use of an additional bathroom and the spacious landing allows space for a cot.

Outside you can choose to sit within a private gravel courtyard garden, sheltered from the hillside behind, or enjoy an evening sundowner on the deck that overlooks the stream and enjoy the tranquility of the countryside beyond.

Bring your boots as this is walking country, with superb walks accessible direct from the property.

Dulverton is close by with an excellent range of shops, pubs and restaurants and the villages of Withypool, Winsford and Exford all have great foodie pubs.

For larger shops and supermarkets the town of Tiverton and South Molton are easy reached and for days trips to the beach, you are within an hour from the beaches of Saunton Sands, Woolacombe and Croyde.

For those seeking a relaxing stay to unwind and enjoy country walks, Dunsley Mill is the perfect choice.

About the location

EAST ANSTEY

Dulverton 4 miles; Tiverton 13 miles.

The village of East Anstey lies in the heart of beautiful unspoilt countryside, four miles from the picturesque market town of Dulverton. Known as the gateway to Exmoor, Dulverton offers the River Barle, which flows under a Grade I listed, 3000 year old stone clapper bridge. The town also boasts pretty buildings and medieval winding streets, along with a wealth of award winning restaurants and pubs, quality gift shops and tea rooms. The spectacular North Devon coast is within driving distance with the picturesque villages of Lynton and Lynmouth well worth visiting. Spend a day at the wonderful sandy beaches of Croyde Bay, Woolacombe and Saunton Sands, all of which provide fabulous opportunities for surfing. East Anstey is an ideal base to explore the magnificent rolling landscapes of Exmoor and the dramatic North Devon coastline.
