Barn Cottage is a detached cottage in the beautiful remote countryside near Tarr Steps, a mile from Hawkridge. The cottage sleeps eight people in five bedrooms over two floors: two first floor doubles and a twin with bathroom, and two-second floor doubles (one can convert to twin) with bathroom. On the ground floor are a kitchen with breakfast table, a sitting room with open fire and a shower room. Outside is a peaceful enclosed garden with woodland views. Barn Cottage is a marvellous cottage for a tranquil or active Somerset holiday.
This detached cottage is situated in woods and countryside, in a rural spot 300 yards from the medieval bridge at Tarr Steps and a lane-mile from Hawkridge. Light and airy, it is an excellent location for families or anyone who enjoys the great outdoors. The large kitchen comes in true country style, with a breakfast table for morning coffee and the papers. Snuggle up later around the open fire in the living room with its dining area, or throw open the French windows on a sunny day. Steep stairs head up to three bedrooms on the first floor, or choose your room for a peaceful night from the two bedrooms at the very top of the house, under the eaves. The enclosed garden is a very tranquil spot with views across to woodland where you may spot a red deer or two and the gentle sounds of birdsong and the nearby river. You can arrange to fly fish for trout or salmon along seven miles of this river, together with tuition in fishing or shooting if you wish. Nearby riding stables are the perfect opportunity for a canter across Exmoor’s heather hills. With the River Barle valley to explore and spot wildlife in, this is an ideal spot for outdoor activities, or if beaches are more your thing, head to Porlock or the surf at Saunton, Woolacombe or Croyde. For shops and restaurants, Dulverton is a fine old town with plenty to offer. With such stunning surroundings, Barn Cottage is an exceptional location for a wonderful break.
Dulverton is the southern gateway to the Exmoor National Park, a small town standing between the rivers Barle and Exe, which meet further down the valley. Dulverton has some quaint narrow streets weaving between fine Victorian buildings and a three-arched bridge crossing the river leading to riverside walks.
