Week Cottage is a self-contained part of an historic farmhouse on the edge of Exmoor. The setting is peaceful, off the beaten track, yet very easy to get to.
This is the enclosed side garden with picnic table and fitted barbecue.
Another view of the living space. Wooden shutters ensure the cosiest stay even out of season.
The cottage is so cosy for evenings in or out-of-season, and the garden is ideal for eating al fresco.
The open plan ground floor has a wood-burning stove and so much character.
There is a pretty, enclosed place to sit at the front of the cottage too.
The dining table is tucked in one corner of the room.
This is the bespoke fitted kitchen, perfectly in keeping with the cottage and its atmosphere.
The boot-room creates a spacious entrance hall, where you can sort out boots and dogs before going in to the living-area.
The master bedroom with its antique brass bed is on the first floor, at the top of the turning cottage stairs.
Low window sills and wooden shutters celebrate this wonderful stone cottage.
The bathroom, also on the first floor, offers an original roll-top bath as well as a shower cubicle.
Looking back across the bedroom, to give you the best impression of the space.
There are interesting features throughout the cottage - this is the boot room with its high ceiling.
A little window on the landing looks out over your garden.
This truly is a 'classic' cottage in every sense.
Here is another of the residents at the farmstead.
... and its companion.
Being put through its paces in the training ring.
The cottage nestles to the left-hand side of the farmhouse. This is a wonderful Exmoor setting, where dogs are welcome and walks are wonderful. The garden is just to the left of the cottage.
Come here if you want to switch off from the pressures of daily life. Walking from the doorstep, fresh air, peace and quiet.
The famous Tarr Steps are an iconic Exmoor landmark.
Britain's largest land mammal - the Red Deer - can be found in many parts of Exmoor.  You just have to keep your eyes open!  In late September and October you can listen for the roaring of the stags during the rut.
The beautiful Exmoor scenery is so easy to reach from Week Cottage - you can simply walk up the hill to find some wonderful open space.
This is the lovely picnic spot by the river in Withypool. The shallow water is a great place for dogs to cool off.
Exmoor isn't just a summer destination - think of autumn!  Cosy pubs, leafy walks blazing with colour, the Red Deer roaring.....  Why not?
The native breed Exmoor Ponies (with their 'mealy' muzzle) are historic and endangered and, when you see a foal like this, absolutely adorable!

Having now stayed at Week Cottage on four separate occasions, we can thoroughly recommend this very picturesque destination for anyone and their canine companion who wishes to experience Exmoor and the West Country at first hand.

Beautiful location, beautiful scenery, beautiful cottage. Lots of lovely walks from the door step , ruck sacks on , packed lunch and flask and off you go ! We an amazing weather , sunshine and a dusting of snow . Stephen and Vanessa are superb hosts , very friendly and approachable . So quiet and relaxing sitting in front of the log burner reading and listening to the buzzards and birds after a long walk . Booked again for October!!

Very good.

Despite a power cut due to Storm Arwen bringing trees down which meant no heating or water for 12+ hours, every effort was made to make sure I was comfortable. I got up to find a litre bottle of water on my doorstep.as soon as information was available on how long the power was going to be off there was a further supply of logs for the wood burner brought to me. I lit the burner, loaded it up and went out for the day. Power came on at least 4 hours later than expected but I had eaten out at lunchtime and had brought back enough food for the evening. The wood burner had kept the place warm and I had been kept informed of the power company progress (or lack of it).

Super cosy cottage , the owners are lovely and met us when we got there , Vanessa took the trouble to show us where everything was in the cottage and it was lovely and warm inside when we arrived . We had a great weekend break and would love to return . Highly recommended,

Great little cottage for two in a good location for exploring that part of Exmoor. Very cosy accommodation, quiet, peaceful location and friendly, welcoming hosts.

This a marvellous location for local walks and exploring all the sites of Exmoor. The hosts Stephen and Vanessa are wonderful hosts warm and friendly with a lot of local knowledge.

We're so delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Week Cottage and found the hosts to be so welcoming and knowledgeable. We're glad you enjoyed the walks and all this stunning area has to offer. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Julie, Customer Support

Week Cottage is a lovely rural retreat in a quiet and unspoiled location. It is perfectly placed to access all parts of Exmoor and we especially recommend nearby Dulverton, and Bossington on the coast. Ideal for a quiet week away from it all in a cosy and rustic hideaway.

Lovely dog friendly cottage in location near best Exmoor walks.

Lovely peace and quiet hardly any traffic noise as it’s a no through road. Away from phones and tech with time to breathe and listen to nature. A retreat. Steve and Vanessa kindly let you share their space.

Cute cottage in fab rural area. So peaceful and Exmoor is a 10 minute walk up the lane. Just lovely.

Week Cottage is beautifully situated with lovely walks straight from the door. The owners are friendly and helpful and a great source of local information. If you want to have a rural retreat this is the perfect spot, we cannot recommend it highly enough.

Week cottage is a lovely little cottage, we had a wonderful relaxing time there. Everything was available, we wanted for nothing. Steve & Vanessa were lovely, very friendly and help. We’ve booked again for 2022

We had a fabulous holiday the cottage we had everything we could want Steve and Vanessa were amazing. There is such a lot to do and see around the area we were out every day we watched Steve breaking in a young horse which was amazing. The cottage is well appointed and in a beautiful location perfect for dog walking and those seeking piece and quiet amongst nature we hope to return soon to the delightful cottage and country side of exmoor

The owners are very helpful and great hosts. Tar Steps , Lyton / Lymouth a must.

Quiet location loved the pheasants and partridges in the lane

A very lovely cottage, with friendly and welcoming hosts. Highly recommended

Exceeded expectations. Beautiful peaceful cottage in a fantastic location with lovely hosts.

We had a wonderfully peaceful stay at Week Cottage, which is in a great location to enjoy lots of walking and other trips around Exmoor. Thanks Stephen and Vanessa for being such great hosts.

Very friendly hosts. Great place to get away from mundane daily life. Ideal for walks on the moors. Plenty of places to see and visit

A wonderfully tranquil location and super, cosy cottage for two - a great place to go and recharge your batteries. We did a fabulous walk to Tarr Steps from the cottage and would have done more of it hadn't been so muddy on the moor!

A wonderful few days at Week Cottage. Gorgeous, cosy cottage in a beautiful setting. We will definitely return. Thank you to Stephen and Vanessa for making us feel so welcome.

We're delighted that you enjoyed your holiday so much - Week Cottage really is a warm and wonderful retreat, whatever the time of year. Tanya, Customer Support

A pretty location with friendly helpful owners.

The cottage is cozy, warm and homely. We would love to stay again.

Peace and quiet in splendid countryside.

Beautiful cottage in fantastic setting. Great if you like country side views and abundant routes to walk.

A well presented and comfortable cottage for two. The owners were welcoming and helpful. I am recommending it to all our friends and we will be back.

Perfect spot for a couple to be based to enjoy Exmoor. Also ideal with a dog as enclosed garden and no carpet for muddy paws back from a walk Lovely warm cottage beautifully maintained and decorated in keeping with age and style of property

Staying at the (listed cottage was like going back in time, a fantastic experience. Didn't need technology, tv, Wi-Fi, telephone, internet, supermarkets etc. Just how it should be and how we used to manage. Really relaxing, stress and hassle free. Just old fashioned country life. Brilliant. Many thanks to Vanessa and Steve

Thank you so much for your review - we're so pleased that you had such a wonderful holiday. As you found, the lovely Week Cottage is the perfect place to relax and unwind - where you can step away and enjoy the peace and quiet but also have the benefit of the technology and facilities on offer should you wish to utilise them. Kari, Customer Support

We had the most glorious relaxing break at week cottage. Located in the most idyllic spot up a no through road what more could you wish for to get away from the crowd. Yet only a couple of miles from Dulverton which has everything you may need. Lovely owners who are there if needed but we did not want for anything. The cottage ticks every box and was so cosy we didn't even have to bother with the log-burner. We will definitely be back............. and probably quite soon.

Stephen and Vanessa were very accommodating and helpful. Thank you for a lovely mini-break.

Great location for walking, just note how steep you are up.

Central secluded atmospheric relaxing and revitalising.

The property was delightful and charming with all sorts of interesting features and artefacts. The cottage was warm and snug with excellent central heating, a lovely log fire and lashings of hot water. We chose possibly the worst week of the year to stay as we got snowed in from the second night of our stay until the end of our holiday which had to be extended by one night without extra charge. However, the care and kindness of our landlord and landlady, Stephen and Vanessa, meant that we had all the provisions needed for a very comfortable stay. The cottage is in an idyllic location and we would definitely recommend it to friends with an appreciation of rural life and historic dwellings. There is wonderful scenery and moorland walking and the area is rich in picturesque villages with dog- friendly, welcoming pubs. Sadly, the snow curtailed our exploration of the area but we will definitely be back!

We found the cottage very comfortable and the owners friendly. Suitable for the dog and some lovely walks in the area.

Steve was helpful with anything local we wanted to know. Didn't asked us once if everything was OK about the cottage! The cottage wasn't all that clean. Lack of cooking bowels, utensils, no clean film, foil, kitchen towel. The washing up spong looked old and worn. And no bar of soap to bath with. From the main photo you use, you have the owners cottage in it too. This looks like the whole of the cottage is for holiday let and it's not.

Thanks so much for your review, and we're glad that you found the owner helpful. It's very difficult to address any concerns if they're not raised at the time - if nothing was mentioned to the owner in your conversations, he may have mistakenly assumed that all was okay. We were surprised to see the you felt the cleanliness was poor as we've certainly always found the property to be very well presented and clean during the many years we've worked with the owners, but we'll pass on your additional comments for investigation. There are captions below the photos of the cottage that explain it is the left-hand side of the building, but we're sorry if this wasn't clear. Tanya, Customer Support

We would highly recommend the cottage to anyone that wants to retreat away from the hustle and bustle of life outside, and go into the calm and serenity of this wonderful hideaway. This is the most wonderful cottage in superb surroundings.

Such a lovely cottage. All the small details in it were so cute. Really nothing to be missed. Every single feature made with love from the owner. The hosts Vanessa and Stephen are so wonderful, helpful people. We loved their company. And also the lovely animals around were so cute. The surrounding was so calm. Also the Exmoor experiences we had were so close to the cottage and a dream for people who like being in the nature. After discovering the Exmoor we loved to come home in this beautiful cottage. Thank you Vanessa and Stephen. We will never forget this holidays. Christiane and Siggi

A cottage that will make your holiday very special.

Please allow me to do that in German language:

400 Jahre altes wunderschönes Cottage in traumhafter und abwechslungsreicher Landschaft. Sehr freundliche Besitzer heißen einen willkommen und freuen sich über den Besucher. Ideal für Paare und Verliebte, sehr gemütlich und komfortabel - in jeder Hinsicht fehlt es an nichts. Bilder können die Schönheit und Ruhe dieser Landschaft nur unzureichend wiedergeben. Wir werden gerne wiederkommen.

This is a charming , quaint, little cottage which retains a lot of its original features. Beautiful location with walks on your doorstep to see lots of wildlife and fantastic scernery . Owners Stephen and Vanessa are so lovely and helpful. A fantastic choice if you want to relax and get away from it all .

We had a wonderful stay at Week Cottage. It was warm and cosy and had everything we required. Absolutely terrific place to stay if you like walking.
The owners are lovely and very helpful.

The cottage is so cozy and comfortable. A perfect getaway for two in a stunning central location. Stephen and Vanessa have thought of everything you could need and provided it. We've stayed there 3 times now!

An adorable little cottage on Exmoor, well worth a visit!! Such beautiful little touches,we wish we could have stayed longer, it was so well equipped, the kitchen had everything I looked for and the bed was so comfortable, you really didn't have any trouble falling asleep after a day exploring the area. We would highly recommend this cottage, ideal for two people and our dog Ernie. I loved the candles! One night we had dinner by candlelight, it felt like we had gone back in time and so charming! Another hit Classic cottages, you never disappoint us. Thank you.

Week Cottage was everything we were expecting for our three night break, owners were very accommodating and helpful. Location of the cottage was perfect for the walks we wanted to do, and we will have no hesitation on returning. Thank you.

Cottage charming, cosy and well equipped. Owners friendly , helpful but not obtrusive.A walker's paradise!

Week Cottage is beautiful, perfectly located and has wonderful hosts in Stephen and Vanessa. We loved our stay and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking for a getaway to the beautiful Exmoor National Park.

Excellent quiet location with good access to Exmoor walks and coast.

In these days of information overload what a relief for the clarity of the Classic Cottages Web site.

We were told in a voicemail on the way to the cottage that the single track road to the property would be closed from early morning to evening during our stay, for roadworks. Effectively we had to be out early , back late and had no access to the property during the day. Heavy resurfacing lorries and wet tarmac and noise. We feel we should have been told in advance about this and given an opportunity to cancel and move our booking elsewhere. The owners went on holiday for the week and left early on the day we checked out 'to go swimming' leaving a scribbled note on the car. We are VERY upset and had our holiday spoiled. We will think twice about using this company again.

Reply from Classic Cottages

We're so sorry to hear of the difficulties you had; as we clarified in our email to you, the voicemail from the Owner before your stay was in fact to say that you could ignore the road closed sign as access was still possible, and of course the Owner did show you an alternative route once you had arrived. We're sorry if there was any misunderstanding over this. Sadly we at Classic were not aware of the roadworks or we would have let you know in advance; had we realised there was some confusion during your stay we - or the Owners' son who was staying next door - would have been happy to try to help. Despite this, we're pleased that you loved the cottage as confirmed in your note to the Owners, and thanks for getting in touch. Tanya, Customer Support

We loved our stay in Vanessas and Stephens cottage and its peaceful and quiet location in Exmoor.

Keep it exactly as it is, the location is superb and the layout of the cottage, though small, is so comfortable.

Lovely cottage for a walking or exploring holiday. Hosts exceptionally helpful

A beautiful cottage in idyllic setting far enough off the main road to make it an oasis of calm. Just to enjoy the peace and quiet amd when you're ready there is plenty to see and do and not too far to drive. Great Owners too.

Ideal place to get away from it all - reconnect with nature and recharge your soul.

A de!ightful cottage, warm and well equipped with very thoughtful and friendly hosts. Would love to stay again.

The most beautiful cottage ! In a peaceful location with just birds to wake you up in the morning. You can walk out the front door and walk for miles and see some beautiful wildlife . We will be booking again .

New to Exmoor and Stephen the Owner who is a country man, pointed us in the right direction to get the most out of this experience!

Perfect place for a quiet mid-winter break in the heart of the Exmoor National Park - secluded location, lovely walks, good pubs, cosy fire!

Very comfortable! Very peaceful and quiet but in easy reach of interesting places to visit and good eating out

We had the most spectacular stay at Week Cottage, not only was it clean and cosy, it was our ideal home. Everything we needed was there, including a lovely bath tub and shower, endless supply of hot water and wood for the lovely fire. The walks were breathtaking and the surroundings of the cottage were incredible. Our dog was in heaven and so were we. The owners were very helpful and we felt right at home the moment we walked in. We cannot wait to rebook, this time for a lengthier stay.

Week Cottage is fantastic and a great place to stay for a relaxing break. The cottage is warm and cosy from the minute you wake up. There are fantastic walks and views. The roll top bath was sensational with steaming hot water to soak in. The log fire added the perfect final touches. Our dog loved it as much as we did! Cannot wait to return.

Have stayed for a short break at Week cottage once before and were very pleased when it was available for the few days that we were able to get away this Autumn. Location is perfect for exploring beautiful Exmoor and a short drive from good pubs for eating out. Week cottage is cosy and warm with all the facilities that we required for a relaxing break.

The property was perfect. Peacefull and supplied everything needed. The hosts were extremely helpful and friendly. Couldn't have asked for more.

It was delightful, cosy and comfortable.

We would like to recommend the Week Cottage to other tourists who are looking for a cosy and peaceful place on Exmoor. It's a remote place but offers lots of possibilities to explore the Exmoor, the coast and beautiful villages.

Friendly hosts The farm setting with the horses was lovely

Excellent location for walking

We really enjoyed our few days in Week cottage. It is an ideal base for a stay at any time of year in this beautiful part of Devon.

When you do not want to leave the cottage you know it's the best Thank you classic cottages

Lovely old world charm cottage. Friendly pub 1/2 mile down hill. Very helpful owners. Wonderful location for walks on Exmoor and for nearby attractions.

A little gem, well woth finding out. Great walks from the door and up on the moors, just a short run up the lane. We will definately be going back to Week cottage. It is simply perfect.

Vanessa and Stephen were very welcoming. The charming cottage is in an excellent quiet location close to Dulverton. We would highly recommend a stay at Week Cottage to any of our friends going to Exmoor. A delightful spot.

Very easy on line booking system. Lovely cottages that are true to pictures and description. Thoroughly recommend company and Week Cottage!
