The Mouse House perches high above the River Exe, in a hilltop position with spectacular panoramic views across the Devon countryside close to Exmoor National Park. This exceptionally comfortable, peaceful cottage is surrounded by mature gardens and there are lovely local walks. A beautiful summer-house celebrates the surroundings and is the perfect place for supper whilst watching the wild deer as they come out to graze. This cottage is snug and cosy all year round with two bedrooms offering flexibility for two guests. The owners live on site but The Mouse House and its gardens – which are not overlooked – are very private.
This area has much to offer. The Mouse House is beautifully off the beaten track and the location is great for exploring the wilds of Exmoor, the endless sandy beaches of the north Devon coast and even the pebbled beaches of the east Devon Jurassic Coast near the Cathedral City of Exeter. The little market town of Bampton and all its amenities is just three miles away – very convenient for some lovely local produce. Tiverton is the closest larger town and on its outskirts you have the National Trust's Knightshayes Court – fabulous gardens at all times of the year and a house with a fascinating local history.
