Riverview is a beautiful period stone cottage that has been completely renovated with warmth and style.
This is the setting for the cottage, at the heart of the Exmoor village of Withypool - Riverview is at the top of the photo.
The views are quite simply stunning. There are two lovely seating-areas that make the most of it, at the front of the cottage, just across the little no-through lane.
This is the gorgeous sitting-room with its wood-burning stove and wonderful views across the top of the village to the moorland beyond.
The large kitchen/dining-room has flagstone floors - ideal if you are bringing a dog.
There is a lovely range cooker, as well as the separate electric hob.
There is a double Belfast sink, a dishwasher and a washing machine through the door on the left.
Stairs to the first floor lead up from the far side of the sitting-room. The door in the photograph leads to the kitchen/dining room.
This is such a wonderful place to stay whatever the time of year and whatever the weather.
A lovely home from home where you can truly relax.
The beautifully fitted kitchen.
Eating in is as much of a treat as strolling down the road to the Royal Oak.
This is the main, front facing bedroom, with its lovely iron framed king-sized bed.
You can sit in bed with your morning cup of tea with views that are quite unbelievable.
All the furnishings, bedding and details are of the highest quality.
This is an example of what to expect in terms of style and quality here.
The main bedroom has this lovely little dressing area to one side.
This is the second bedroom, looking out over the rear garden.
Another view of the second bedroom. A lovely  tranquil room where you are sure to sleep soundly.
The soft furnishings are as special as the cottage itself.
This is the bathroom, on the first floor.
There is a shower as well as the bath so that you have the choice.
More friendly details bring this cottage to life.
Back downstairs, the boot-room is off the kitchen/dining room.
The boot room is the perfect space for your dog's bed, especially if it has muddy paws from an adventure on the moors or in the river!
This is a very practical space, just off the kitchen, and with a door to the back garden.
Stone steps - with a handrail - lead up to the top garden where there is a level area of lawn. Photos will be added shortly.
There is plenty of private parking at the front, with the little no-through lane between this gravelled area and the cottage.
The River Barle runs through the village, a fabulous picnic spot, with shallow water for children to enjoy and a  riverside footpath along the valley to Landacre Bridge.
The village has a wonderful seasonal tea-room.
As well as this great village shop for all your provisions.
The scenery of Exmoor National Park is fabulous. The open moors are a short walk away form the village.
This is another image of the front of Riverview. The back door - entrance on arrival - is down the little passage to the right.
And another view of the cottage from this lovely little sheltered gazebo.

We found Riverview extremely comfortable and cosy, even in the wind and rain of Exmoor in autumn. Our dog had to be dragged away from the rug in front of the woodburner! Well equipped with lovely quality bed linen and furnishings, some beautiful homely touches and a very kind and helpful owner who took the trouble to visit us on our day of arrival. Withypool is a small friendly village with a good shop, a pub that serves great food and an excellent tea room that was even open during November. A great base. Would certainly recommend.

We had a lovely time at riverview. The cottage was wonderfully furnished and so well equipped and the village including the shop, pub and tea shop was fantastic. We have stayed in lots of great cottages in the national parks in England and this was the best.

We loved the walks on the door step and would highly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to stay in Exmoor.
