Situation - Cowlings is located within the Exmoor National Park in the sought after hamlet of Bury, at the foot of Haddon Hill with its footpaths and bridleways. This quiet hamlet is situated in the Haddeo River valley and known for its historic packhorse bridge and ford through the river.
Dulverton, 2 miles away, is a delightful small town nestling in the Barle Valley and is well known as The Gateway to Exmoor. It provides good day-to-day shopping together with two churches, a post office, a chemist, doctors, dental and veterinary surgeries and a well-used town hall. There are also good restaurants and recreational facilities including squash courts, all weather tennis courts and football and cricket pitches.
The University and Cathedral city of Exeter lies 28 miles from the property and boasts a wealth of shopping, recreational and leisure facilities, with schooling up to A level standard. The city benefits from excellent communication links with access to the M5 motorway and mainline rail services to London and the rest of the country. Exeter International Airport lies to the east of the city and offers national and international flights.
Exmoor National Park is within a short distance and offers wonderful opportunities to walk and ride on the open moorland and in the wooded river valleys. Haddon Hill and Wimbleball Lake are also just a few miles away and offer riding, walking, sailing and fishing as well as many other recreational pursuits.
Field sports are an integral part of the Exmoor community, as well as salmon and trout fishing on the rivers. The coast to the north is within easy reach and provides a wealth of water sports such as surfing and windsailing.

Description - Cowlings is a delightful home, which stands in a stunning garden bordered by the River Haddeo. Originally thatched but rebuilt in the 60's, the property retains some very pleasing period features and now provides spacious and modern accommodation, including the magnificent fireplace in the sitting room, exposed beams, maple and slate floors. The property is extremely well equipped and decorated, has a lovely atmosphere and would be equally suited to permanent or holiday occupation.

Accommodation - The sitting room is a particular feature of this property, being vaulted with an impressive original fireplace and having large glazed windows overlooking the fabulous gardens. The dining room has slate flooring and also a glazed door to the garden. The kitchen is fitted with an oil fired Aga and fully integrated appliances. There is a good sized utility room and rear hall.
Upstairs there are two main bedroom suites each with their own bathroom and dressing area accessed via their own staircase and there is a third bedroom with a bathroom on the ground floor. The first floor also has a wonderful mezzanine, currently used as a library overlooking the sitting room.

Outside - The mature gardens are a lovely feature of this special property giving privacy and seclusion in this tranquil setting. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn and have some specimen trees such as paper bark maple, handkerchief tree and silver birch. The raised paved terrace on the south side of the house overlooks the sheltered garden towards the Haddeo River with about 45 metres of frontage down to the ancient packhorse bridge.
