Due to current Covid-19 restrictions, Emmetts on Exmoor is being rented out to smaller groups of guests in three bedrooms at a reduced price. If you would like to take advantage of this, please contact the owner.
Emmetts on Exmoor is an impressive Georgian house which sleeps 13 people in six comfortable bedrooms. Additional beds can be added to three of the rooms if you have a larger group. The owners have created a welcoming place where families and friends can relax and spend time together in elegant surroundings, enjoying unspoiled views over the Exmoor National Park. The uninterrupted views from the front of the house across the lawn and beyond to Hangley Cleave are simply stunning. Emmetts sits in the heart of a 900-acre remote agricultural and moorland estate and, at 1250 feet, it is the highest farm on the moor. With wonderfully clean air and spectacular vast-open skies, it is the perfect place for a peaceful relaxing break. Guests are most welcome to explore the estate – there are some beautiful walks from the door with babbling brooks and tranquil spots for a picnic in abundance! Guests are also most welcome to use the full-size all-weather tennis court.
Spend happy hours walking and cycling (E-bike hire can be arranged 5 minutes away), go pony trekking across the moor from nearby Brendon Manor, explore the caves at scenic Cornham Ford, go coasteering at Porlock, stop for afternoon tea at Selworthy and visit Lynton and Lynmouth for fantastic fish and chips and the Cliff Railway; a funicular that has conveyed passengers since 1890 using nothing more complicated than gravity and water. Attractions for children within half an hour’s drive include Exmoor Zoo, Quince Honey Farm, Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park, sailing and paddleboarding at Wimbleball Lake plus a network of superb beaches.
NB. The house has benefited from some refurbishments over recent months – all rooms have been decorated and further improvements will take place in the coming year.

Emmetts on Exmoor is a period property with accommodation over two levels.
Outside: The estate is genuinely unique and the views are breath taking. The lawn features a patio with teak dining table and barbeque. The courtyard is home to rare breed chickens and traditional stables. The tennis court is available throughout the year and the games barn (table tennis and skittles) is available until 8pm daily.
Additional Information: Utilities, sheets and towels are provided. A travel cot and high chair are available on request. Starter baskets of firewood are left next to each fire and can be replenished for a fee onsite. There is no mobile phone signal on the estate so you will need to log on to the Wifi to use your phone. There is also a dedicated landline for guests in the office. The Wifi is a satellite provision which is generally okay (the owners do video conference calls without issue) but it can be temperamental at times. Pets are very welcome downstairs (additional fees apply). Stabling is available on site. Please contact the owners to discuss.
