This peaceful group of hills which lies on the border of Devon and Somerset has survived almost unscathed by post-war development. To the north the land rises steeply in a dramatic wooded scarp, while to the south it forms a plateau, deeply dissected by valleys. On top of the plateau lie open windswept spaces, while in the valleys, picturesque chertstone, cob and thatched buildings cluster in villages and hamlets, surrounded by a patchwork of small enclosed fields, and accessed down narrow winding lanes with tall hedgerows. Local pubs serving superb food are nearby including a fantastic local shop and cafe in Culmstock village 1 mile away. Set in a stunning rural location, Wayside House is the perfect sumptous getaway and guests can even take their horse (at an extra cost), as there is spacious comfortable American barn stabling with full livery (optional) just 5 minutes’ walk away. After a long day’s riding, there is the indoor heated swimming pool to relax in. Shop and pub 1 mile.
