Overview
Holiday Rental House -
8 Bedrooms , 5 Bathrooms , Sleeps 14
Lynton, Exmoor National Park, England
Oaklands is an impressive, 8-bedroom, traditional stone-built detached house sleeping 14 in comfort, situated in the heart of the Exmoor National Park between the open moor and the spectacular north Devon coast.
