Former farmhouse enjoying a very private, secluded location close to Exmoor National Park, set within large grounds, with access to 240 acres of stunning wildlife rich countryside.

This property is ideal for guests who really want to get away from the stresses of daily life, and lose themselves in the peaceful rural surroundings. The valley within which the property is situated offers guests miles of scenic walks, but for those who want more of a challenge, the South West Coast Path is just a few miles away, where visitors can enjoy hikes and incredible views of the dramatic Atlantic coastline. Just five miles from the property, the town of Bampton is a designated conservation area, and as such, offers a glimpse at traditional life in rural Devon, a choice of pubs and restaurants, and a small range of shops including a convenience store and a traditional butchers’ shop.

Approaching this property down the long, wooded drive, guests will immediately gain a sense of just how wonderfully private and secluded it is here. The property occupies a single storey annexe of the main farmhouse, which will remain unoccupied during the stay, allowing guests to have the place to themselves. Entering the property, guests will first come to the cosy lounge, with its comfortable seating, TV/DVD, and warming woodburner. The property’s kitchen/diner is accessed via glass doors from the lounge and offers a dining table, double oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher, whilst the washing machine and tumble dryer are located in a separate utility room. The bedroom is a comfortable double room, with plenty of storage space and a TV/DVD, allowing guests to relax and enjoy a lie-in in the mornings. There is a large wet room, which has a shower and a WC with hand grips. Accessed via the garden, there is also a separate sun room, where guests will find a fun table tennis table, table football and a child’s size pool table.

Outside, there is a patio area with garden furniture and a BBQ, overlooking the expansive lawns, which guests have sole use of during their stay. Beyond the garden, guests are able to access the 240 acres of wildlife rich countryside and woodlands which surround the property. There is ample off-road parking provided.

The cottage has everything you could possibly need for a very luxurious, comfortable and peaceful stay. We did a couple walks of the farm devised by Peter and although we went astray we had a great time. Wildlife incredible saw stoats, buzzards and many other animals. Wendy and Peter are fantastic owners and can't do enough for you. In covid times Read moreprosseco and chocolates were very welcome after a long journey, although we would have loved to have sampled one of Wendy's cakes Hide

Eastbourne is a bustling seaside resort on the south coast of England. It has been a popular British holiday destination since Victorian times. The town’s attractive pier and promenade is still a major draw for visitors in search of a traditional seaside experience – you can enjoy a long, level stroll along the sea front whilst enjoying an ice cream or some fish and chips. The pebble beach is a good place to park a deckchair and take in the sun, or paddle in the sea. Great for family breaks and as a romantic getaway, the town has much to offer all visitors. The South Downs Way starts in town and extends 100 miles eastwards to Winchester – one of the first stops on the National Trail are the imposing chalk cliffs of the iconic Beachy Head, a few miles to the east of town. Eastbourne is a big hit with train enthusiasts as it’s home to the Spa Valley Railway and the Miniature Steam Railway. Historians may like Redoubt Fort and The Observatory Science Museum (in nearby Herstmonceux). For all-weather attractions for children why not investigate Fort Fun or the indoor Motcombe Swimming Pool? Further afield, and within a one-hour drive to the west is Brighton, with its own pier, wonderful array of shops and eateries. To the west is Bexhill-on-Sea with its impressive art gallery, the De La Warr Pavillion, and long seafront. Just beyond is the old fishing town of Hastings with its new award-winning designer pier, ancient castle and fishing shanty town.
