Number 5 is the most welcoming period cottage, close to the centre of the lovely little market town of Dulverton – described as the gateway to Exmoor. This terraced cottage is deceptively spacious, with beautifully renovated accommodation, an enclosed sunny courtyard garden and all just a short stroll from all the lovely independent shops, cafes and the friendly riverside pub. Exmoor National Park is on your doorstep offering breathtaking unspoilt scenery, wild moorland, deep wooded valleys and tumbling rivers to explore. Number 5 has an open plan ground floor with a wood-burning stove at its heart, a separate little 'snug' area (ideal dog’s bedroom!) and three lovely bedrooms – one downstairs with a large en suite shower; the family bathroom is upstairs.
This is just the sort of property and location that will suit families with children, friends, walkers or guests simply wanting a peaceful and comfortable base in a very pretty little town with everything you might need nearby. Dulverton is a thriving community and visitors are welcomed here. If you are new to Exmoor there is an excellent visitor centre where you can chat to staff about the best walks, gentle and challenging, and riverside footpaths – the River Barle runs through the town and has some great picnic spots and further upstream are the historic Tarr Steps and beyond that the moorland village of Withypool. Whatever the time of year, Exmoor is gorgeous – with the vibrant springtime gorse and heather and the famous snowdrops of the Cutcombe Valley, the wide open summertime skies on the high moors with their real sense of space, the amazing colours of the autumn forests, and the glistening winter frosts.
