Forge Cottage - Wootton Courtenay, Nr Minehead, Somerset, Exmoor, England - Sleeps 3

Forge Cottage

Forge Cottage sleeps up to three guests and is a delightful romantic holiday cottage which is located in a pretty rural location within Exmoor's stunning National Park. It provides the ideal place to escape the pressures of every day life and relax amongst beautiful countryside.

Located in a pretty little lane in the peaceful village of Wootton Courtenay, the cottage is within a short stroll of the village shop and has instant access to footpaths on the Exmoor National Park. There is a good restaurant within walking distance (generally open at weekends) and a pub within two miles which you can also walk to. The cottage offers spacious accommodation for three guests in one double bedroom which also has an additional single bed. There is also a sofa bed in the sitting room.

The Exmoor National Park is vast and encompasses over seventy percent of Somerset and almost thirty percent of Devon with its beautiful rugged countryside. Its diverse landscape is perfect for those who enjoy walking, mountain biking or horse riding with its windswept heather-clad moorland, majestic undulating hills, stunning wooded valleys.

The Medieval village of Dunster is closeby with its yarn market and castle and the lovely National Trust villages of Bossington and Selworthy are too within easy reach.

Whether you simply want to relax, get out and about and discover the pretty little Exmoor villages or have an action packed holiday full of ourdoor adventures, this wonderful location has something for you. Nature lovers can enjoy the vast array of wildlife with wild red deer to spot, buzzards soaring majestically overhead and of course the Exmoor ponies that roam this wonderful landscape.

There is plenty to see and do in this area and there is some stunning scenery with notable view points at Dunkery, North Hill, Webbers Post, Porlock Hill, Lynmouth and Lynton. Historic sites include Tarr Steps, Dunster and its Castle and a packed events schedule of fetes, fairs, countryside shows and local events provide much entertainment for visitors throughout the summer months.

There are plenty of attractions to enjoy: why not take a trip on the West Somerset Railway - a steam train rennovated railway covering twenty miles of beautiful countryside between Minehead and Bishops Lydeard; visit one of the animal based attractions such as Exmoor Zoo, Tropiquaria, Exmoor Falconry and Lynton Alta Alapacas; or alternatively visit one of the museums which are scattered across Exmoor including the acclaimed Bakelite museum and Watchet Boat Museum.
