Dulverton, 2 miles away, is a delightful small town nestling in the Barle Valley within the Exmoor National Park and is well known as The Gateway to Exmoor.

The coast to the north is within easy reach and provides a wealth of water sports such as surfing and windsailing.

Description: - A traditional Grade II listed, thatched cottage full of charm and character.
