Set high above the village of Luxborough at the heart of Exmoor National Park, Westcott Cross Cottage is a fabulous detached family home with a huge enclosed garden and unspoilt views for miles around. The spectacular vantage point of this home-from-home provides excellent walking right from your doorstep. The cottage is ideal for sociable living, the large farmhouse-style kitchen includes an Aga and the spacious sitting-area has a wood-burner and views through the patio doors across the valley. Open-tread stairs from the main sitting-room lead up to the light bedrooms with their low bespoke beds. Another staircase at the other end of the cottage leads from a second sitting/dining-room and little kitchen-area, offering versatile accommodation for an extended family.
This is a perfect place for all the family – and the family dog too of course – with such large gardens and such fantastic walking on Exmoor. You can set off on foot from the front door to explore this beautiful National Park as there is a bridleway that runs down the side of the gardens, down the valley and right up the other side. The Exmoor National Park offers spectacular open moorland, wooded river valleys, a rugged coastline and its stretch of the South West Coastal Path. Lovely places to visit are Tarr Steps near Dulverton – an ancient river crossing (with a rather convenient pub for lunch), Landacre Bridge for lazy picnics by the river, Dunster for a bit of history – with the National Trust castle and plenty of little shops to browse in, and Minehead or Blue Anchor for a day on the beach for the children. The house is so comfortable and welcoming that you may just want to stay put, switch off and completely unwind from the pressures of everyday life as you take in the completely unspoilt views from this wonderful hilltop setting.
