Deep in the Devonshire countryside, the historic Old Ford House Cottage is set in an idyllic valley amongst its own mature enclosed gardens, which can be overlooked from the conservatory. The property has been decorated and furnished to a good standard. There is a small boating lake, abundant wildlife and the outdoor heated swimming pool is open during the months of May to September. Old Ford House Cottage is adjoined to the owner’s home, but offers complete privacy and is set in 24 acres, so there are many walks that can be taken from the property. Take a trip to Exmoor National Park, which continues to delight visitors year after year, and is one of the smallest and prettiest of Britain’s National Parks being about 265² miles in area. Visit the moor and enjoy this quiet and unspoilt corner of Somerset and North Devon where there is ancient wooded valleys with magical waterfalls, a dramatic coastline with secluded beaches and miles and miles of wild open moorland, an area of contrasts with deep valleys and combes, high heather moorland and ancient oak woodland. Stunning at any time of year, Exmoor is a landscape for all seasons. If you are looking for an area of great natural beauty with wonderful walking, riding, and fishing then Exmoor is for you.
You may glimpse some red deer roaming wild on the hills, or buzzards soaring in the sky. You will certainly see the typical small-horned sheep and the famous Exmoor ponies. Where Exmoor meets the sea is stunningly beautiful, with the highest sea cliffs in England, and the amazingly rugged coastline from Minehead through Porlock, to Lynton and Lynmouth. There are many National Trust properties to visit, and just a short drive away there are many sandy beaches ideal for spontaneous days out. Shop 6 miles, pub and restaurant 2 miles.Ground Floor:
