Beautiful former stable groom cottage situated in the heart of Exmoor National Park, this cosy cottage is perfect for a romantic getaway for two.

This delightful cottage is located in the small town of Withypool, sitting in the heart of the stunning and dramatic Exmoor National Park which offers a fantastic range of breath-taking walks with spectacular views. You can walk Tarr Steps in the heart of Exmoor and enjoy the sights of the beautiful wooded valley of the River Barle. There are also opportunities for horse riding and fishing nearby. A short drive away is the glorious North Devon coast, with its picturesque views, sandy beaches, charming seaside towns including Porlock, Lynmouth and Lynton, the Valley of the Rocks, and the breath-taking coastal walk from Heddons Mouth to Woody Bay.

Heading into the cosy lounge area, which has comfortable seating surrounding the TV and wood burner. The well-equipped kitchen is perfect for cooking a romantic meal for two with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with freezer compartment and washer/dryer. Make your way up the original steep staircase to find the two bedrooms, the master king-size bedroom and dressing area along with stunning views out over the countryside and a cosy single room.
