Stayed in Gorse Cottage which was quaint and cosy. Power shower was appreciated especially after all the walks we did. Had everything you needed.

We had a very comfortable peaceful stay in Gorse Cottage. Very clean and well equipped, owners extremely helpful and made us and my dog very welcome. The most relaxing holiday that we have had for some time. Would love to stay again

Lovely working farm in middle of Exmoor National Park. Brian recommended we upgrade to the larger Bracken Cottage which we appreciated as we were staying 5 nights. Accommodation was brilliant and location tops for seeing all the sights in and near National Park.

About the neighbourhood
In the centre of Exmoor National Park on the border of Somerset and Devon. The cottage lies in a beautiful, quiet rural location beside the River Exe and only 10 minutes drive from the lovely coast. It is at Riscombe Farm and we have some sheep, goats, ponies, chickens and ducks. Lots to see and do in and around the National Park.

The Exmoor area offers beautiful scenery, historic villages, lakes, rivers, beaches and is ideal for walking, cycling or just touring. Enjoy the excellent local food and drink, visit National Trust properties and travel back in time on a steam railway!
