Welcome to this very special house, which has been part of our family for more than forty years. It is a listed building, parts of which date to the 16th Century or earlier.
An oak-framed porch running across the back, facing the garden, creates a special place to sit in the shade on a sunny day and from here you enter the front door and hallway.
Turn left and you enter a bright spacious double length living room with French windows, an open fire and a log burner. An ideal place to relax with plenty of sofas for everyone to collapse into. A couple of steps leads to a study, if you fancy a quieter space, with books and board games.
To the right of the hallway you enter a charming dining room with garden views, a log-burner and a stunning ‘Plank and Muntin’ oak panel wall. Off this, there’s a well-equipped kitchen and also a larder, with a large fridge/freezer.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms leading off the landing, all with great views to the garden. With two large double bedrooms and two further rooms, with two single beds each, Woodlands can accommodate eight adults. For baby guests we can also provide a cot and a high chair. The bathroom has the longest roll top bath you have ever seen, ideal for a long soak after a hard day on ‘the top’ of Exmoor! There is also a separate shower room with a basin and loo.
The house has full oil-fired central heating, WiFi, a TV, DVD and classic Technics hi-fi system which connects to iPhones etc. We live next door, so can answer your questions and show you over the house when you arrive.
There’s a private, secure driveway and a separate gate to the house, near the Kitchen door, leading onto the road. Guests with children and pets are advised to keep these gates closed. Dogs are welcome to stay as there are many beautiful walks for them to enjoy. There is a charge of £10 per dog for up to 3 nights stay and £20 per dog for up to a week. Two baskets of logs are made available on arrival, logs are available from the log store at £5.00 per basket.
