Dieppy Farm Cottage is an easy to reach bolthole in the quiet village of Skilgate, on the edge of Exmoor National Park. Originally the village forge, this single-storey cottage still has that hint of history – the fireplace now home to a wood-burner, and the stream running past the garden. French windows open onto the south-facing decking above the stream, overlooking the lake in the Owners' part of the garden. The open plan layout gives this attached cottage a spacious and homely feel at the same time. A garden path and short flight of steps lead from the parking-area to the cottage. The Owners live next door but you will feel completely private with your own entrance and garden.
The pretty little market town of Dulverton is about four miles away – a great place to buy all your provisions and to enjoy a coffee or a meal out. Bampton is also just a short drive away – with its traditional butcher and baker and a couple of galleries too for those holiday treats. Also nearby is Wimbleball Lake where you can walk along the shores and watch the activities of the sailing school – perhaps try your hand too? This cottage is perfectly placed for a walking holiday whether gentle or challenging, and two small dogs are welcome here. For greater flexibility guests have the option for the bedroom to be set up as a king-size double or twin beds (2'6").
Open plan living-room with kitchen and dining areas. TV/DVD player and wood-burner. Gas hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge and washing machine.
Bedroom with 'zip and link' (5' double or 2'6'' twin) beds.
Shower-room with shower, WC and wash-basin.
Take care, there's a step down into the kitchen/living area from the entrance hall. Only babies up to the age of eight months are accepted at this property. As space is limited, it would be wise to bring a carry cot or Moses basket rather than a travel cot. Take care around the stream, as part of it is unfenced. *A cot is not provided, bring your own travel cot.
