This beautifully refurbished and spacious Victorian wing of a traditional period farmhouse is in one of those truly stunning settings that Exmoor National Park is all about. The tree-lined driveway curves down towards the farmhouse and has amazing panoramic views over the Exe valley. Step into the porch and through the main front door of this lovely farmhouse into the warm and welcoming character of the sitting-room with its fabulous inglenook fireplace and wood-burning stove. Off a half-landing is the bespoke kitchen/dining-room and bathroom and on the first floor both bedrooms have lovely rural views. Outside, enjoy the orchard garden all to yourselves and explore the farm’s 35 acres. Just one and a half miles up into the hills above the lovely market town of Dulverton and with easy access to the open moorland and wooded valleys of Exmoor – perfect for four-legged friends – this location is the best of both worlds.
Exmoor is a wild and beautiful place whatever the time of year. Deep wooded valleys and wide open moors are much-loved features to explore. Little lanes and farm tracks lead into hidden valleys and Stockham Farm enjoys just this environment with footpaths from the farm’s boundaries leading up to the moors. Dulverton is a really pretty place which serves the rural communities all around and welcomes visitors warmly. Try the fabulous, award-winning pubs – both Woods and The Bridge Inn have won national awards! – as well as the cafes, restaurants, deli, gift shops and antiques shops for those holiday treats. From here you can set off along the riverside walk, following the river Barle all the way to Exmoor’s iconic Tarr Steps, a beauty spot with an extraordinary heritage. As well as the great outdoors, the medieval town of Dunster with its imposing castle is well worth a visit, and the coast is just a few miles further on. Some of the most spectacular scenery is where Exmoor plunges down to the sea with dramatic cliffs – one of the great challenging sections of the South West Coast Path. Coming home to this lovely property out-of-season when Exmoor is at its wildest, with its roaring wood-burning stove and under-floor heating (the bedrooms have radiators) is as much of a treat as staying in the spring, summer or autumn.
