Property code: GRACC

Former farmhouse enjoying a very private, secluded location close to Exmoor National Park, set within large grounds, with access to 240 acres of stunning wildlife rich countryside.

This property is ideal for guests who really want to get away from the stresses of daily life, and lose themselves in the peaceful rural surroundings. The valley within which the property is situated offers guests miles of scenic walks, but for those who want more of a challenge, the South West Coast Path is just a few miles away, where visitors can enjoy hikes and incredible views of the dramatic Atlantic coastline. Just five miles from the property, the town of Bampton is a designated conservation area, and as such, offers a glimpse at traditional life in rural Devon, a choice of pubs and restaurants, and a small range of shops including a convenience store and a traditional butchers’ shop.

Approaching this property down the long, wooded drive, guests will immediately gain a sense of just how wonderfully private and secluded it is here. The property occupies a single storey annexe of the main farmhouse, which will remain unoccupied during the stay, allowing guests to have the place to themselves. Entering the property, guests will first come to the cosy lounge, with its comfortable seating, TV/DVD, and warming woodburner. The property’s kitchen/diner is accessed via glass doors from the lounge and offers a dining table, double oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher, whilst the washing machine and tumble dryer are located in a separate utility room. The bedroom is a comfortable double room, with plenty of storage space and a TV/DVD, allowing guests to relax and enjoy a lie-in in the mornings. There is a large wet room, which has a shower and a WC with hand grips. Accessed via the garden, there is also a separate sun room, where guests will find a fun table tennis table, table football and a child’s size pool table.

Outside, there is a patio area with garden furniture and a BBQ, overlooking the expansive lawns, which guests have sole use of during their stay. Beyond the garden, guests are able to access the 240 acres of wildlife rich countryside and woodlands which surround the property. There is ample off-road parking provided.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

This was our third stay at the cottage and I am sure we will be back again. If you are looking for peace and quiet and complete privacy where all you can hear are the birds and no neighbours for half a mile this is for you. Perfect!
