This impressive large holiday home is located at Cophole Farm which nestles amongst glorious scenery within the Exmoor National Park. Sleeping up to fourteen guests and offering a high degree of comfort and style, Cophole is the perfect venue whether you are looking to get away with friends, family or want to celebrate a special occasion.
Offering a warm welcome to people and pets alike, Cophole Farm extends to some four hundred acres, and is a breeding stud for horses and other farm animals so there's always plenty to see (particularly in the spring when the newborn lambs are jumping with joy or the summer when the foals are finding their feet!). The surrounding scenery is simply stunning and offers plenty of opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts with lovely walks and cycle rides to enjoy. Wimbleball Lake (a Dark Skies Discovery Site) is just a short walk away - a tranquil reservoir where you can try your hand at trout fishing, canoeing, sailing or for those looking for something more sedate, hire a rowing boat and take a picnic. There are also lovely walks around the lake (and bike rides), a children's play area, plenty of space to find a quiet place to relax, and tree top adventures with ropes to swing from (sure to keep the monkey's entertained!).
Exuding Victorian charm, Cophole is beautifully presented throughout with plenty of space for everyone to relax and socialise. It offers not just one but two sitting rooms (one for the children and one for the adults!); a kitchen equipped with everything needed to cater for a banquet; dining room with seating for all around one table and piano for some traditional entertainment; seven bedrooms (with one on the ground floor for those with limited mobility); and five bath/shower rooms so no fighting over the wash room in the morning! The outside living area is equally impressive with plenty of room in the garden to relax during the warmer months and space for the children to let off steam.
Exmoor's natural beauty is equally as spectacular by day as it is by night, being the first International Dark Sky Reserve to gain status in Europe. With its wild rugged moorland and picturesque coastline it offers miles of tracks and trails to explore by foot, bike or horse back. Pretty little villages with traditional inns (the nearest being the Raleghs Cross Inn just up the road from Cophole Estate) are just waiting to be discovered and there are an abundance of great days out and attractions to suit all ages.
