A view of this pretty end of terrace cottage, taken from the neighbouring gardens.
This is a great place to come back to after a bracing walk. As expected with a cottage of this age, there are low ceilings, beams and lintels - take care if you're tall!
The galley-style kitchen has access to the private patio at the rear of the cottage.
The double bedroom looks out over the hidden gardens in the heart of Dulverton.

Wonderfully cosy.
We just love the character of this cottage.
You are sure to relax in this cosy cottage.
The modern shower-room is bright and spacious.
Pretty views.
Treat yourself to breakfast on the sunny patio.

Find your way down the garden path...
... and arrive at Lane Cottage.
The black is the front of Lane Cottage with cute feature window - the key safe and back door are around to the left, down the passage.
This is the entrance to Rosemary Lane. Lane Cottage is off a tiny square with private parking at the end of the lane.
The River Barle flows through Dulverton - there are some lovely walks alongside it.
Exmoor is as beautiful in the Autumn as it is in Summer.  Pack your walking boots and take a long hike - perhaps to have lunch at a cosy pub somewhere......
The ancient clapper bridge, of Tarr Steps is just a few miles from Dulverton.  Have a beautiful walk along the river and stroll across this historic monument.
Walk, ride or drive across Exmoor and you are almost bound to see the charismatic Exmoor ponies.  This Stallion was quite a poser.
Exmoor has quite a few Red Deer tucked into the coombes and up on the hills.  You just have to find them.......
Wimbleball Lake is nearby - for lovely lakeside walks and a range of watersports to enjoy.

Excellent location, walking distance of lots of eating options. Really quiet. Very friendly village

Local car park £5 per day. Better to park here. Otherwise tricky parking and turning space when neighbours cars parked close.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on Lane Cottage. We're so sorry that you found the parking a little tricky and appreciate you sharing the information regarding alternative parking. We hope to welcome you back in the future. Julie, Customer Support

Make clear the restricted access in the listing, rather than just putting it in the arrival document - this is too late to enable guests to make informed decisions.

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review - we do try to be as accurate as we can with our online descriptions and we do show the access lane to the cottage and parking area in the photos - we're so sorry if this was missed and we'll have a look to see if we can make this more clear. Tressa, Customer Support

We had a wonderful time in this beautiful old cottage. Great location in the centre of Dulverton but so quiet and relaxing. Everything you need in this small but perfectly formed home-from-home. Cosy evenings were spent in front of the log burner after fabulous Exmoor walks.

We had a very enjoyable stay at Lane Cottage. It is a true cottage in all senses and met our expectations. We would consider returning in the future.

Very cosy for one or two people, extremely quiet location despite being in the heart of the town. Extremely comfortable home from home.

Quaint cottage with everything needed for a weeks stay in lovely location with plenty of choices for walking and eating

Garden lovely, peaceful.

Should mention the narrow access. A small car would not be an issue.

Lane Cottage is a good base for walking and exploring the area Dulverton is a friendly place

Very comfortable cottage in perfect location .

Lane Cottage was a charming little cottage with real character and excellent facilities. Can thoroughly recommend it for a cosy, relaxing holiday.

Dulverton is a good base ,a fine little town,good pubs and food and friendly people.

If you have mobility problems stairs could be tricky especially with toilet upstairs. If you are over 6 foot be prepared to bang your head. Lounge only about 6 foot high. Parking next to house tight but car park next door and parking in street. Dulverton a lovely town with good butcher and large coop. Nice shops to browse in. The lion pub and restaurant, the bridge inn and Woods restaurant all excellent and easy to walk to. Most dog friendly town we have ever been in. Roads quiet and peaceful in May and a delight to drive on. Lovely walks along rivers and on moors. Places to visit such as Dunster and Porlock and cream teas everywhere.

Thanks so much for your review of Lane Cottage and we're so pleased to hear that you enjoyed some wonderful walks along the local rivers and moors and some retail therapy in Dulverton! Lane Cottage is a very cute semi-detached period cottage filled with typically traditional features including low beams, lintels and steep cottage stairs (see description) but perfectly located for exploring the local area as you found. Bryony, Customer Support

Excellent location in lovely village. Dulverton has all the necessary facilities - without being over busy or touristy. It is within easy reach of all parts of Exmoor and the north Somerset coast. The cottage is very attractive and characterful and is quiet, peaceful and surrounded by greenery. .

An excellent base for keen/fit walkers.

Although it is mentioned the lane really is quite difficult to negotiate with a medium sized car

Reply from Classic Cottages

Thanks so much for taking the time to review the cottage. The heart of this lovely little town obviously dates back far before it was usual to travel by car, and so there are some narrow streets and occasionally tight turns on the approach which may prove challenging to drivers of larger vehicles, but undoubtedly adds to it's charm. Generally speaking medium-sized vehicles (VW Golf or equivalent) will be fine with a little care. Tanya, Customer Support

It was a very cosy and warming

Charming olde worlde cottage in great location. Very comfortable and everything you need is provided. Minutes walk to the town with excellent facilities. Friendly people, good service in shops and restaurants and very dog friendly. Would happily visit again

From booking to leaving we had contact with someone who knew the area and was helpful. The cottage had everything you could need in a peaceful location. Ideally placed for the village and with walks from the door step, you'd be hard pressed to fault Lane Cottage. We're planning our next trip!

Brilliant location, lovely town and a lovely cosy cottage.

Owners were very kind and attentive. There were some very kind and thoughtful little extras awaiting my arrival. Logs, tea and biscuits and a bottle of wine! Hoping to return in the summer.

Lovely cottage in a quiet location. Very cosy and comfortable. Difficult to get a larger car down Rosemary Lane, very tight on my Honda CR-V (width of car 1,820mm).

Lane Cottage is a beautiful cosy cottage in a wonderful location. The owners were lovely, ensuring that we were happy throughout our stay, but without being intrusive. We felt that any problems or issues would have been sorted immediately (although I must say that there weren't any). The location is second to none and would most certainly recommend to all, as a friendly, dog welcoming place. We fell in love with Dulverton and will be returning. Thank you Classic Cottages and Ian and Vicky.

Very enjoyable stay. Many homely, welcoming touches [real internal flowers, maps, guides, etc]. Very local easy walk to 4 excellent restaurants and pubs. Highly recommended.

A fantastic cottage in a beautiful village.Truly walks right from the door. Dog friendly pubs & tea rooms all around the village.Only booking one week trust me you will want more.

The cottage is in a lovely location with plenty to see and do in the local area. It had everything you could possibly need and was extremely comfortable and cosy. We would have no hesitation in booking again or recommending

The cottage is in a great location, in this lovely town with its services, and very accessible to the delights of Exmoor. Very tranquil.

An excellent cottage in a pleasant town with good range of shops and facilities.

It was the perfect, idyllic little cottage. I will definitely stay there again and the owners could have been more accommodating. The perfect peaceful time after a hectic festive period.

Gorgeous cottage, very cozy. Perfect location for some excellent walks around the area, didn't use the car once. Restaurants and pubs were excellent and all nearby. Would definitely recommend and hope to return soon.

A perfect 'Escape to the Country'. Ideal cottage, in a beautiful village, didn't want to leave. Will recommend to friends in Australia.

Beautiful cottage in a wonderful location, surrounded by stunning countryside and sumptuous eateries to return to in the evenings - what more could you want !!!

The cottage was beautifully presented with every possible need catered for (hairdryer, iron, etc,) Fresh milk in the fridge, tea tray with local biscuits set out and even fresh flowers on arrival. Felt immediately at home.

An excellent cottage in a great location.

The enjoyment of our holiday was improved greatly by the thoughtful and welcoming Lane Cottage.

everything was delightful but be sure to use a small car as the lane is rather narrow!

your company and the cottage is just perfect. The pictures of the cottage do not really give you the feel for the place. All I can it was just perfect. The kitchen is a fully functioning kitchen, so we made some great dinners. The little TV is great, and the bed is just so comfortable. Just what you need when you come back from a nice long walk. The little porch around the back is also nice as you always need somewhere to take your muddy boots off. Would stay again and would recommend family and friends.

Some information about the property would be interesting, especially about the history, and its previous uses.

Comfortable cottage in a nice location for an Exmoor holiday. Recommended.
