Exmoor National Park
Whilst Exmoor is one of the smallest National Parks in the UK (but arguably the prettiest), it still offers some 264 square miles of remarkable countryside from its high heather clad moorland, rolling farming countryside, deep wooded river valleys and some of the highest marine cliffs in England along its northern coastline.

The moorland village of Wheddon Cross is a short drive away and provides a range of amenities like the Rest and be Thankful Inn, a local shop and a petrol station. The picturesque village of Winsford with its community shop and the Royal Oak Inn is also nearby. Exton parish church is a short distance away. A further range of amenities can be found c. 5 miles away in the popular Exmoor town of Dulverton where facilities like doctors, dentist, pharmacy and schools are located.

The property is situated in superb countryside ideal for walking and riding. Wimbleball Lake with its wide variety of water-based activities is nearby, and fishing is readily available on the River Exe.

The Property
The property is entered via a porch with seating on one side which was added by the current vendors. A door leads into the main Entrance Hall/Snug: flag stone slate flooring, feature stone fireplace (beam above) with inset woodburing stove and bread oven to one side. Window to rear elevation. Leading through the arched doorway to the Kitchen/Diner with triple aspect, continued flag stone floor and patio doors leading out to the gardens and a stable door giving access to the drive. No expense has been spared when creating this bespoke kitchen which provides a fabulous space for cooking and dining. The kitchen has a range of fitted wall and base units, granite and wood work surfaces, double sink bowl, integral dishwasher and washing machine, electric 30 AMP AGA (used only for cooking), space for a tall fridge freezer and good sized family table. A step down from the kitchen gives access to the larder which also houses the hot water cylinder and the UV and particle filter for the private water system.

Accessed from the entrance hall, a step leads up to the Study which offers a flexible room within the house ideal for those who work from home, with views to the rear garden and paddock. Oak flooring continues through to the Downstairs Cloakroom with fitted W.C, radiator, fitted wash hand basin and two fitted cupboards, one of which is an airing cupboard housing a low-level heater bar.

A particular feature for this home is the Drawing Room offering a homely but spacious area for entertaining or relaxing in front of the fire. To one end there is a stone pointed working fireplace, with raised hearth and inset woodburing stove. The other end has a feature fireplace opening with shelving (the fireplace could be potentially reinstated but the new owner would need to seek professional advice). There are window seats below the double glazed windows where you can sit and enjoy the magnificent views.

The Conservatory leads off the drawing room and offers another space for you to enjoy the magnificent views from the property, with windows on three sides and doors giving access to the garden.

There is also a hardstanding area to the side of the property for a car to park. Stone steps lead from the drive to the elevated rear garden where a small orchard has been planted. The oil tank and water storage tank are also found here. A small wooden gate gives access to the top paddock.

The main area of garden is predominately laid to lawn with a large stone Walled Patio Area ideal for entertaining or enjoying the scenery and listening to the birds. There is a small pond and a gate that leads into the front paddock. There is also a Hartley Botanic Greenhouse for gardening enthusiasts.
To the side of the stables is the vegetable garden with a number of established raised beds.

The land of c7 acres consists of 2 paddocks and an area of woodland. The front paddock has been kept as a wildflower meadow by the current owners. They also planted over 700 trees to create a memorial woodland of c1.5 acres which has been recognised by the OS and named on most recent maps. There will be a covenant to protect this woodland.

Agent’s Notes
There is a public footpath which runs across the front paddock which continues down the valley towards Exton. Indicated on the map below from points A-B.

From our office
Proceed up the High Street onto Jury road and follow this down to the A396. Turn right at this junction and then left signposted to Brompton Regis. Continue on the road past White Post Cross (signed posted Wheddon Cross and Minehead) keep heading along the road, down the dip and continue past the sign Broad Lane Head, down the hill and the entrance to South Huckham will be the next turning on your left identified by a field gate and a public footpath sign. There are 3 houses down there and South Huckham is the first one on the left.

From M5 Jn 25
Leave M5 at Taunton, you have about 25 miles to go which will take you about 45 minutes (depending on tractors!). Leave Taunton on A358 towards Minehead. After about 4 miles, at Cedar Falls Health Farm turn left on B3224 to Exmoor; in particular you are aiming for Wheddon Cross.
Keep following signs for Wheddon Cross remaining on the B3224 (watching out for a right turn about half a mile after the Ralegh Cross pub). At Heath Poult Cross (a couple of miles before Wheddon Cross) turn left towards Dulverton (it is marked as a Heavy Goods Vehicle route). This is the last point where you might get mobile phone cover. A mile down the road (passing lane to right) turn right down a track where there is a footpath sign to Exton. As confirmation that you are in the right place, inside the gate, there are 3 letterboxes (one labelled South Huckham). The gate may be closed, if so please close behind you as sheep may be wandering where they shouldn’t be. We are about 500m down this track on the left, stay in first gear as it gets a bit steep at the end!

From M5 Jn 27
Leave M5 at Tiverton junction which again is about 45 minutes from us. Follow A361 dual carriageway towards Tiverton. Stay on this road for about 7 miles until the roundabout with A396. Turn right and follow A396 towards Minehead, taking care you don’t get confused at the rather odd “Black Cat” junction with the B3227. This road will take you to Exebridge. About 2 miles beyond Exebridge look out for a turning to the right signposted as the Heavy Goods Vehicle route to Watchet. Turn right here and ascend quite steeply. Remain on this minor road for 5 miles (ignoring turns to right for Brompton Regis and to left for Exton). Shortly after the Exton turn, as the road starts to descend into a fast straight, look out for a footpath sign pointing left to Exton. Turn left down track, 3 letterboxes inside the gate confirms you’ve got the right one. The gate may be closed, if so please close behind you as sheep may be wandering where they shouldn’t be. We are about 500m down this track on the left, stay in first gear as it gets a bit steep at the end!
