Sitting in the heart of Exmoor National Park, Week Cottage dates back to the 1690s and is all picture-book old world charm inside. A spacious boot-room, perfect for muddy boots (and dogs!), leads into the compact kitchen and beamed sitting/dining-room beyond, where soft rugs cover the original quarry tiled floors and armchairs snuggle up by the wood-burner. Traditional steep cottage stairs lead to the bedroom and bathroom. Adjoining the Owners’ home but completely self-contained, there is a private patio and barbecue area and gently sloping enclosed garden. So don your walking boots, grab the dog’s lead and stride off over the moors – and return to this welcoming retreat to relax by the wood-burner or stroll down to the local pub, just half a mile distant.
As well as the excellent walking in this area, the market town of Dulverton is just a few miles away – a lovely place to visit for local shopping, cafes and treats to remember your holiday by! Beyond Dulverton visit the famous and historic Tarr Steps and spend a relaxing few hours by the river. Withypool also has a lovely riverside picnic area.
A bit further afield visit medieval Dunster with its National Trust castle, and the National Trust village of Selworthy between Minehead and Porlock – where there is a wonderful stretch of the South West Coast Path to explore.
Week Cottage enjoys the seclusion of being set in the heart of Exmoor National Park, so mobile signal can be weak, however guests with an iPhone can access mobile reception through the WiFi.
All in all, Week Cottage is a perfect base for a full and peaceful rural holiday.

Week Cottage, part of historic Week Farmhouse, is the most peaceful cottage for two to escape to. Dog friendly, with an enclosed garden and walks up on to Exmoor from the farmstead.
The garden has a lawned area, a paved terrace, seating and a barbecue. There are just a few stone steps up to the garden.
This beamed room is the heart of the cottage. It has a wood-burning stove and a comfortable sofa to relax in at the end of a day out walking.
The large entrance hall has this lovely settle to sit on to pull off those walking boots. This is a great space for your dog too, especially if it gets muddy.
There is a little round dining table and chairs in the corner of the room.
The kitchen tucks along one wall in the open plan living space in the cottage.
This is a view of the cottage from its own private enclosed garden. There are lovely views.
The pretty double bedroom looks out to the front of the cottage.

The pretty bathroom is off the first floor lading. It has a roll-top bath as well as a separate shower.
Another view of the bathroom to show you where the shower is.
The cottage nestles to the left-hand side of the farmhouse in this wonderful Exmoor setting where dogs are welcome and walks are wonderful. The garden is just to the left of the cottage.
The famous Tarr Steps are an iconic Exmoor landmark.
Wimbleball Lake is nearby. There are a range of lovely footpaths to follow around the shore and in the woodland that surrounds the lake.
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.
This is where Exmoor National Park meets the sea - the scenery is breathtaking.
