Perfectly situated on the fringes of the beautiful, rugged Exmoor National Park, this semi-detached cottage is a gorgeous hideaway for all the family, including your four-legged friend.

Elm Cottage is truly a place for all seasons; in the summer you can enjoy a coffee or an aperitif on the patio and on those chillier days, cosy up in front of the roaring wood-burner in the sitting-room. Spending quality time together will be a delight in the open plan kitchen/dining-room that has a pretty view over the garden, (please take care as there are two steps from the dining-room to the kitchen).

On the first floor, there are three characterful bedrooms and a modern family bathroom. As well as there being an en suite to the main bedroom, there is a useful shower-room on the ground floor meaning each bedroom can have use of its own bath/shower-room. The cottage is stylishly finished throughout, equipped with everything you could need on holiday.

Outside the garden offers a delightful space to relax in, (please note it is not enclosed so take care with dogs and children). You can access Exmoor National Park on foot from Elm Cottage, simply turn right out of the cottage parking-area onto Park Lane and continue up the hill to the signpost and wooden gates on your right, here you will find a stunning view of Exmoor and Dunster Castle. You will truly feel as though you have escaped daily life, as you marvel at the unspoilt moorland and hidden valleys that dominate the landscape.

Carhampton itself has a handy village store for some holiday goodies and a local pub a short walk away. Also nearby is Dunster, a very attractive medieval village with cobbled streets, an old packhorse bridge and ancient castle. Further into the national park, there is an endless list of places to seek out - head to Dulverton where there are lots of independent shops, sweet tea rooms and cosy pubs. A short drive outside the town is Tarr Steps, a 17-span clapper bridge, that provides a perfect riverside picnic spot. The wooded valley of the River Barle offers the chance to see an abundance of wildlife and out on the heathland of Winsford Hill, you are sure to spot some Exmoor ponies.

If you fancy a trip to the sea then we would recommend exploring the South West Coast Path that starts at Porlock Weir; a quiet spot that feels almost untouched by modern life. Spend some time here and imagine it as the once busy shipping route of the 18th and 19th centuries. For sand between your toes head to Blue Anchor beach, which is also a great place for your dog to run.
