Emmett's Grange is an impressive elegant Georgian style holiday home that accommodates up to fifteen guests in six bedrooms and sits on a nine hundred acre estate. With some of the most incredible views over the dramatic and rugged Exmoor landscape, this is an exceptional holiday home for a large group celebration or for spending quality time with friends or family.
Sitting at twelve hundred and fifty feet, Emmett’s Grange is the highest farm on Exmoor and nestles in the very heart of the estate alongside a smaller holiday home - Linhay which sleeps two guests. Parties of thirteen can be accommodated when Emmett's Grange and Linhay are rented together, yet both are equally suitable for letting individually with each sitting at the end of its own private drive, in an ideal setting overlooking fields and moorland.
The Grange is an ideal place to spend a holiday and is a spectacular and unique paradise for those with an interest in walking, cycling, fishing, horse riding or who want to simply relax amongst wonderful scenery. Guest's have the sole use of the estate during their stay and are free to enjoy the extensive grounds. Why not enjoy a family picnic or some good old fashioned damming at the stream. The children can try their luck at catching the fish that live in the pond and don't forget to look out for the Red Deer that can often be spotted grazing on the moorland and surrounding area which is a haven for many rare native bird species. Hunting, fishing, shooting and falconry can also be arranged and stabling for twelve horses is available should you wish to bring your own horse.
For those who can tear themselves away from the estate, the wider area of West Somerset and North Devon has plenty of attractions to offer. From beautiful sandy beaches at Croyde, Woolacombe and Saunton to rugged cliff top walks at Lynmouth and Lynton. Alternatively explore the historic market towns of Dulverton and South Molton along with the miles and miles of wild unrivalled moorland that the National Park has to offer.
With so much to offer on the doorstep, this is an exceptional holiday home with superb facilities in a wonderful Exmoor setting.
