Yenworthy Mill, Countisbury

Yenworthy Mill is part of Yenworthy Farm. Set in a spectacular location on the northern slopes of Exmoor National Park, a few hundred yards from the coast and with views of the Bristol Channel. The Farm is situated in ‘Doone Country’, and actually appears in the novel itself. The gun, which was supposedly used to repel the ‘Doones’, still hangs in the farmhouse to this day. This working farm once had its own mill and the old water wheel can still be seen.

Yenworthy Mill is ideal for walkers - a rugged pathway leads from the farm down to a secluded rocky beach and there is direct access to one of the most scenic sections of the South West Coast Path which runs through the farm. There are 13 miles of footpaths to explore on the farm itself and it even has its own historic monument - an old Roman Fort at Old Burrow. A haven for wildlife, it has four Sites of Special Scientific Interest. There are rare species of butterflies and trees, large areas of heather moorland and impressive cliff geology.

The property is a converted barn. Inside the entrance is an area providing space for coats, wellies and walking boots. There is a very large room with a kitchen at one end with a dining table and ten chairs and, at the other end, a double height sitting area with two comfortable sofas and a wood-burning stove. A walk in cupboard houses the washing machine and dryer. Steps from the living room lead to an attractive gallery room where there are three sofas and a large television. There are also three steps up from the living room leading to a corridor containing a downstairs toilet, a double bedroom with an on-suite shower room and a twin bedroom. Stairs lead up to the first floor where there is a family bathroom, a twin bedroom and a large double bedroom with an additional set of bunk beds and a cot. Outside, there is a pretty raised garden with mature shrubs to the side of the Mill with views over the Bristol Channel. The garden has outside seating and a barbeque

Yenworthy Mill is approached via private drive (shared with the farm and two further holiday cottages). The Mill has its own private parking area with a gate and short path leading to the entrance.

The kitchen appliances include a large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer , microwave, and oven with hob. Other equipment includes toaster, kettle, a variety of cookware, kitchen utensils, cutlery, crockery and glasses. The living room has a television (with Freeview), Blu-ray/DVD player and CD player/iPod docking station. Wireless broadband is available throughout the property at no extra cost.

A cot and high chair are provided.
Bed linen, duvets, blankets and towels are provided for your convenience, but please bring your own beach towels if you wish to take towels with you on day trips. Please note that bed linen is not provided for the cot.
Electricity and heating costs are included in the price of the accommodation. Yenworthy Mill benefits from central heating fuelled by a biomass system, which keeps the property lovely and warm in the cooler months. The temperature can be adjusted to suit your preferences if required. There is also a wood-burner in the sitting room downstairs; a basket of logs, some kindling and matches will be provided.
There may be non-perishable items like a salt, pepper, oil and a few herbs or spices available.
Cleaning materials such as washing up liquid, and surface cleaner will be present in the property.
One or two toilet rolls will be provided per toilet.

Yenworthy Mill has a lovely raised lawned garden to the side of the property with steps leading up from the patio outside the front door.. There is a picnic bench which has been placed to take advantage of the fabulous views across the farmland to the coast - the perfect spot for unwinding with a book or dining al fresco! Parking is available outside the property, there is room for three cars. A short footpath leads from the parking area to the front door.

Dogs are welcome by prior arrangement (maximum of 3). A supplementary fee of £15 will be added to your invoice.
