If you were looking for cottages like Lythecourt, how about trying these:

Lythecourt is a wonderful Victorian house with over four acres of grounds, in a fabulous elevated setting above the route that is called 'The Gateway to Exmoor' just outside the mid-Devon market town of Tiverton. With a grand reception hall complete with a wood-burner and baby grand piano, a drawing-room/sitting-room, dining-room and second sitting-room – each with a wood-burning stove – a games-room and wide sweeping stairs to the five bedrooms and three bathrooms on the first floor. Lythecourt is simply perfect for multi-generational holidays, special celebrations for groups of friends, or for two families sharing their holiday together. Very easy to reach from the M5 motorway and in a great location for exploring the wilds of Exmoor National Park or for day trips to the endless sandy beaches along the north Devon coast or the dramatic east Devon Jurassic Coast, this property works brilliantly for short breaks as well as for longer stays. Just staying put in this fabulous house and catching up with a group of special friends is as much of a treat as using it as a base for an out and about holiday whatever the time of year. The River Exe is just 100 yards away on the other side of the road – popular with experienced kayakers. The all year round dog-friendly sandy beach at Instow is about 45 minutes away and the renowned surfing beaches at Croyde, Saunton and Woolacombe are just under an hour away. Alternatively, follow the road up onto Exmoor – a route that is very popular with cyclists – via the lovely market town of Dulverton, for wide open skies and moorland walks which will make you feel like you are on top of the world.
