Braunton Cottage sleeps eight guests in four bedrooms and is a fantastic Exmoor Farmhouse with hot tub that has been completely renovated and refurbished to offer self-catering accommodation of a very high standard. Original features such as inglenook fireplaces and beams have been perfectly mixed with contemporary finishings to allow guests to enjoy the charm and peace of this beautiful retreat.
Approached up a private quarter of a mile drive, the Farmhouse offers complete privacy within an Exmoor estate. The wild moorlands and open fields of Exmoor start at the foot of the garden providing plenty of opportunities to explore the diverse landscape and enjoy the wildlife for which Exmoor is famed.
The farmhouse is cosy whilst being naturally light, with large open rooms and lots of space for everyone to spend time together and also find a quiet corner for a peaceful moment.
Braunton Cottage is surrounded by some one hundred and eighty acres, in a magical valley with woodland, streams, paths and ponds. It is perfect for quiet strolls, family picnics or just playing in the stream! Alternatively just sit back and take in the wonderful views which span some sixty miles to Dartmoor in one direction and Skilgate in the other.
The surrounding area is a walker's paradise with plenty of magical walks including one that takes you to the little village where there is a shop, post office and the famous Royal Oak Inn which serves superb meals. Within half a mile (level walk) there is also the renowned 'Sportsmans Inn' which serves great pub food and local Exmoor ales.
For cyclists, the Sustrans Cycle Route runs past the farm taking you to Sandyway and beyond, where you can explore the beautiful Lanacre Bridge and Withypoole. Alternatively, cycle north and take in the incredible views as you travel to Moles Chamber, or visit Challacombe to enjoy lunch at the famous 'Black Venus'.
Exmoor is home to some of the finest hunting in the country along with some of the best fishing when in season. There are also plenty of attractions to visit including Dunster Castle, Arlington Court, Hartland Abbey, Rosemoor and numerous towns and pretty villages including Croyde, Minehead, Woolacombe and Combe Martin.
