About Dove Cottage

Wintershead affords a wonderful idyllic position within the Exmoor National Park on the Devon/Somerset border - far enough away from the hustle and bustle of modern living for you to relax in this stunning tame wilderness which is home to the famous Exmoor ponies, red deer and gracious buzzards soaring up above.

The owner offers a high standard of self catering accommodation in five charming holiday cottages which provide a relaxing and friendly atmosphere. Surround by a courtyard, the cottages have all been imaginatively converted and retain all their original character and charm.

Wintershead has extensive grounds (of some eleven acres!) and an idyllic setting surrounded by lush rolling countryside. Whilst enjoying a remote peaceful setting, there are plenty of nearby villages with pubs and restaurants where you can enjoy a meal. The little village of Simonsbath is three miles away; Exford is five miles further and the lovely country market town of South Molton in Devon is ten miles.

This is a great base for exploring Exmoor and enjoying everything the 'great outdoors' has to offer. Walkers and cyclists have close access to open moorland and there are miles of bridleways for horse riders to explore (facilities can be provided if you wish to bring your own horse and there is horse riding available nearby). North Devon and also Cornwall's beautiful dramatic coastlines, dotted with golden beaches such as Combe Martin and Croyde (a surfers paradise!) are great for a day trip out and easily accessible by car.

The holiday cottages at Wintershead have everything needed for a perfect holiday.

  • Excellent base for touring
  • Panoramic views
  • Good pubs/restaurant within short drive
  • Fully inclusive price
  • Ample parking
  • Laundry facilities
  • North Devon beaches nearby
