A handsome, detached farmhouse near the Somerset coast, surrounded by the rolling green hills of Exmoor where sheep and cattle roam.

Nestled in a valley of the Exmoor hills on the Holnicote estate, this tranquil, beautifully-renovated cottage has unrivalled views towards Dunkery Beacon, Exmoor’s highest spot. It’s also handily close to the South West Coast Path, making it an ideal base for both walkers and seaside-lovers to get out among the sweeping coastal landscapes and abundant local wildlife.

Open the front door of this 19th-century farmhouse and you’ll be in the welcoming hallway. Just off the hallway you’ll find a sitting room with big comfy sofas and a cosy woodburner. The beautiful dining room leads on to the large modern kitchen with its traditional flagstone floors and a handy boot and utility room off to the side. It’s a great sociable space for getting everyone together. Upstairs are the 5 bedrooms, several with en-suites. Outside, you’re spoilt with plenty of space and a cottage style, lawned garden and outdoor seating area.
