Why Not Add Value To Your Holiday by Staying in two Places?
Our Dulverton cottage is ideally placed to enjoy an upmarket little Exmoor town, with the infamous “Woods ” restaurant and wine bar just a short stroll home at the end of the evening.
The cottage is very spacious, with fibre optic broadband, a woodburner and a cute little sun deck looking over the rooftops to the river Barle, a real suntrap in the summer.
You have a choice of restaurants and pubs for the evenings, the Thai has a lovely outside terrace, strung with fairy lights, whilst the Bridge Pub is always a favourite with our guests: cosy in winter and with a popular beer garden in the summer.
Our converted barn in Exford, in the very centre of Exmoor gives a romantic and luxurious stay for two.
Experience a classic English village with 2 historic coaching inns, a village stores and a tea room, just a short walk away by footpath along the bank of the River Exe.
The barn is attached to our farmhouse in the traditional Devon longhouse style, but is totally self contained and peaceful, with just the sounds of owls and the river to lull you to sleep.
You have a choice of three equally interesting routes between our two cottages, each off road and fabulously scenic….we couldnt pick a favourite!
We will carry your bags ….just leave them in the hall at Buchan Cottage and they will be there to greet you at Spindrift Barn (or vice versa!).
We can also provide a picnic, or you can browse the bakers, farm shop and delicatessen in Dulverton and create your own.
Then you are free to enjoy whichever route you choose, with our comprehensive guide, map and compass provided. (we can guide you if you prefer)
1) Court Down and Summerway,
Lunch at the Royal Oak, Winsford or picnic and stay in the Exe river valley for an easy stroll via the historic farmsteads of Nethercote and Lyncombe.
