Barn Cottage

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.
