If you dream of a romantic, tranquil retreat in the heart of Exmoor, an area better known for the dramatic tales of the Doone family, Keepers Cottage is absolutely perfect. Detached and set a short distance from the owner's own home by riverside meadows and woodland, it has been sympathetically and stylishly converted from a former barn. The lovely sitting / dining room with wood burning stove for cosy cooler evenings features original beams. French doors lead out onto the private and enclosed patio terrace and lawn overlooking the river, a wonderful spot to relax or enjoy al fresco meals. Evoking the character of the barn, a separate cottage style kitchen features beech work surfaces complemented by a Belfast sink. On the first floor an attractive spacious bedroom with stylish ensuite bathroom enjoys fabulous views over the river and surrounding countryside. A selection of country and riverside walks are available closeby, pony treking is just two and a half miles away and river fishing is available on your doorstep( Environmental fishing license required) . Brendon village just under a mile away has a good village inn and nearby Oare has tearooms and a gift shop. The popular twin towns of Lynton and Lynmouth on the coastal edge of Exmoor are just a short four mile drive away and offer a great selection of craft shops, galleries and restaurants.

Beautiful cottage in a stunning location. Fantastic walking from the front door to amazing viewpoints. Cottage was immaculately presented, really cosy and warm, with or without the woodburner.
