There is a double room adjacent to a bathroom with a power shower over the bath, while downstairs is a cosy open plan living space.

    Spent a long weekend here in late November. Lovely location, ideal if you have a dog. Welcoming hosts. Good base for Exmoor walks, handy for moor and coast. Good pub in nearby Exford. Four cottages set around an old farmyard mean it would be ideal for a large multi-family group. Will certainly come again.
