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.
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. All in all, Week Cottage is a perfect base for a full and varied holiday.
