Woodpecker Loft Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
This second floor apartment called Woodpecker Loft is situated on the outskirts of the village of East Anstey, close to the market town of Dulverton in Devon. This cottage sleeps two people and has one king-size double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. There is also an open plan living area at this cottage with a fitted kitchen, a dining area and a sitting area with beams. To the outside of this cottage there is off road parking for one car and shared grounds with unfenced pond and furniture. Woodpecker Loft is one of four apartments within the Knapp House estate and is an ideal holiday home for exploring the Exmoor National Park and lovely seaside villages.

East Anstey is a village set in stunning countryside. Just four miles away is the market town of Dulverton. Within the town is the River Barle, which flows under a Grade I listed, 3000 year old clapper bridge. Also on offer in the town are medieval streets, restaurants, pubs, gift shops and tea rooms. Further afield are the breathtaking Exmoor National Park, excellent beaches and the lovely villages of Lynton and Lynmouth.

Devon, with its quiet country lanes, patchwork of lush green fields and sleepy villages is not to be missed. Stately home lovers will be spoiled and why not finish with a scrumptious Devonshire cream tea?

Woodpecker Loft is a beautiful property in stunning grounds. We had a warm welcome from the owner. It is a good size apartment, with everything you could possibly need. The location is a bit remote, but that's fine by us! We will definitely return next year!

Excellent location for discovering Exmoor. Also perfect for peace, quiet and relaxation.

We loved the place, its surroundings and its proximity to Dulverton. The property was homely, comfortable and we settled in very quickly on the day. The owner introduced herself on the day and kindly suggested that if we ever needed anything, she would be there to help. Great hospitality. Very happy with the whole experience. Thank you.

It was a delightful place to come back to after a day out, the layout was interesting and aesthetically pleasing. There was a great separate place for our dog to sleep.

Everything, the weather was fantastic, The Loft was one of the nicest places we have stayed in and that means a lot! A welcoming cream tea and a real home from home.

Woodpecker Loft, although part of a large stunning hunting lodge with other holiday lets within the property, was extremely cosy and not overlooked by any of the other properties - making it peacefully secluded for a quiet stress free week away.

The accommodation and the owners were absolutely fabulous. The loft was first class.
Mrs Lucas

The lodge was immaculate and we received a lovely welcome from the owners. We saw the wild horses. There was so much to see and do. A return to North Devon definitely beckons.

I loved the room and the grounds were beautiful and peaceful. The situation was very good - easy to reach the coast or Exmoor, but tranquil and hidden away.
Mrs Barker

The situation of Woodpecker Loft is excellent a good base for exploring Exmoor. We liked Dulverton the nearest small market town. The Loft is well equipped, comfortable and felt very cosy when the gales were blowing in the surrounding trees on New Year's Eve. The owners were very welcoming and we enjoyed the mince pies and the bubbly.

I loved everything. The owners were very welcoming, showing us around the property when we first arrived. They provided all the basics, as well as a cream tea which was delicious. Overall the whole place was beautifully decorated and clean, with a warm, welcoming feel.
