The property

Hangley Cottage is a charming, three-bedroom holiday home resting within a unique 900-acre estate which sits just above the village of Simonsbath, home to an excellent local pub.

This private spot provides spectacular views, plenty of wildlife spotting opportunities and unbeatable stargazing in the darkest non-polluted skies.

Boasting ample off-road parking, large lawned gardens with access to a tennis court, and a superb location within the brilliant setting of the Exmoor National Park, this lovely abode welcomes a family or group of six friends seeking to make memories with a relaxing, fuss-free escape in Somerset.

Park up outside your delightful new home-from-home, taking a moment to breathe in your stunning new surroundings, gazing out upon serene views of the encompassing moorland.

Step inside Hangley Cottage, where you'll be instantly welcomed by a range of tasteful, well-appointed living spaces.

A well-equipped kitchen/diner houses all the appliances required to whip up delicious, home-cooked dinners that can be savoured at the dining table, whilst a plush sitting room with corner sofa, woodburning stove, and a sleek Smart TV invites you and your loved ones to kick back and unwind in the evenings.

In house catering can easily be arranged on request.

Those seeking to take in some fresh air can head outside into the garden, choosing to dine alfresco with the help of the charcoal barbecue or delight with a game of tennis if you're feeling competitive.

Start each day with a morning coffee before you set out to explore what's on offer in your local area.

A wealth of walks can be found right from your front door, some of which weave all the way through the magnificent private estate.

There is a wide range of wildlife on the estate with many different species of birds and wild animals for guests to spot including the famous Exmoor red deer.

A short drive will bring you into the village of Simonsbath, set on the River Barle, as well as the Two Moors Way and Macmillan Way West, two footpaths popular with avid hikers and nature lovers.

Walkers will be spoilt for choice with walks to Pinkery Pond, the Doone Valley and Cow Castle to name a few and cyclists can tackle the Tarka Trail!

The historic sites of Wheal Eliza Mine and Cow Castle lie just east of Simonsbath, whilst further north, the must-see sites of Watersmeet, a National Trust site, the Valley of Rocks, and the Lynton & Lynmouth Cliff Railway are all within easy driving distance.

You'll also find an abundance of exciting things to do and see within the Exmoor National Park, whether that's snapping photos of Dunster Castle and Watermill, ambling across the peaceful stretch of Bossington Beach, or a visit to the Exmoor Owl & Hawk Centre.

The market town of South Molton is close by with its national award winning pannier market, as is Dulverton and Exford.

Though situated in the very heart of Exmoor, the coast at Lynton is just over a 12 mile drive away and the sandy beaches of Woolacombe, Saunton and Croyde can be easily reached.

Enjoy the ultimate retreat to Somerset when you book Hangley Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.

About the location


Exford 6 miles; Lynmouth 8 miles; Minehead 19 miles.

The small village of Simonsbath stands on the junction in the centre of Exmoor where the East-West, Exford to Challacombe road crosses the North-South, Lynton to South Molton road. The village consists of a number of properties scattered along the lanes from this junction. It is also home to the church of St Lukes, a hotel and a pub. The area has several lovely walks especially down the River Barle which passes the southern edge of the village. The village of Exford is a short drive away which boasts a village green, tea rooms, a shop, Post Office and two traditional inns serving excellent food and drinks. Exmoor National Park is 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. The area is renowned for fishing and riding. The largest herd of wild red deer in England and Exmoor’s unique wild ponies roam the moors, as they have done since the time of the Domesday Book. Guided walks with a National Park Ranger take place throughout the summer, and Exmoor is home to Lorna Doone and Tarka the otter, it is a place of rolling hills, medieval villages, such as Dunster with its castle, wild moors and a dramatic coastline. The coastal towns of Lynmouth, Porlock and Minehead are only a short drive from Simonsbath and there are a variety of beaches along the coast, consisting of sandy and shingle beaches, plus some are ideal for surfing and body boarding. In 2011 Exmoor National Park was designated an International Dark Sky Reserve, the first place in Europe to achieve this prestigious award and only the second in the world. Simonsbath is a wonderful location with plenty of things to do for everyone.
