Dulverton, well known as The Gateway to Exmoor has a strong community and provides good day to day shopping together with two churches, post office, chemist, medical, dental and veterinary surgeries and a well-used town hall.

Description - Hartford Lodge is a charming character cottage, which is surrounded by its beautiful gardens and set in a very peaceful and unspoilt part of Exmoor. The property was once one of the Lodges for the Pixton Estate. Full of character and charm, the property now offers a blend of period features with modern facilities, including full oil fired central heating. It is the setting at Hartford which is so special, with the River Haddeo running through the valley where there is an abundance of wildlife within the unspoilt countryside and notable birdlife. The American Barn with three loose boxes and a tack room, together with the paddocks and location, makes the property ideal for someone with an interest in equestrian pursuits.

Accommodation - As illustrated by the floor plan, from the covered entrance porch the front doors leads into a hallway with doors to both reception rooms. The dual aspect sitting room enjoys southerly and westerly views and has exposed timber flooring, beams, a bay window and a fireplace with bread oven and inset with a multi fuel stove. The dining room is also dual aspect, has a bay window, exposed timber flooring, beams and a fireplace inset with a multi fuel stove. The staircase leads to the first floor. The kitchen is fitted with a range of matching wall and base units, integral oven with hob and has three windows overlooking the garden. At one end there are two cupboards, one housing the boiler and the other has useful storage space. A door leads out to the utility/boot room with further space for white goods.
Upstairs there are two good sized double bedrooms both with bay windows and views over the gardens. Bedroom three is a good sized single room and the bathroom is fitted with shower cubicle, bath, hand basin, WC and airing cupboard.

Outside - Approaching the property from the lane, steps lead up to the front door and also into the delightful garden which surrounds the cottage. Mainly laid to lawns with terraces and an abundance of shrubs and flower borders, the garden is a special feature of the property. There is a raised patio area in a secluded sunny position from which to enjoy the views. To the side is a fruit garden and a productive vegetable garden. There is also a greenhouse and a stone outbuilding, a stable/garden store and a further log store. A separate track gives access to the parking area in front of the modern American Barn 9.99m X 9.44m With three loose boxes, a secure tack room, further storage space and power and water connected.

The Land - The land is divided into three enclosures of well fenced pasture. A gate from the garden leads into one field which is enclosed with mature hedge boundaries and a further gate returning to the bridleway. The second field is accessed from the American Barn and again is enclosed with hedgerows. Both these fields have water troughs. The third field sits to the eastern side of the River Haddeo and has a vehicular right of way in addition to the bridleway that passes through the bottom boundary, below the field hedgerow. The pasture is a mix of level and sloping land.
