Overview

About the property

Spacious and comfortable cottage in fabulous area for walking

The Old School House dates back to 1836 and was used as the Brushford village school until a new schoolroom was built in 1895 then the Old School House became the Headmaster's home. Adjacent to the property is the village church which dates back to the 13th century.

Old School House has been renovated and redecorated to a very high standard, retaining many original features including a small bread oven in the current dining room fireplace. A surprisingly spacious cottage, Old School House has a light and airy feel, and enjoys pretty views to the surrounding countryside. There is an enclosed cottage garden at the front of the cottage with barbecue area containing wooden garden table and chairs.

The accommodation comprises sitting room, dining room, kitchen-breakfast room, study, utility boot room, downstairs shower room. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, a twin bedroom and a family bathroom which has a shower over the bath.

The Old School House is well equipped with all new appliances. The kitchen has an Aga-style electric range cooker, combination microwave cooker, dishwasher and fridge; a washer-dryer, freezer, hoover, iron and ironing board are located in the Boot Room. For the cook there is a range of stainless steel pans, casserole dishes and bakeware.

A Weber barbecue is kept in the courtyard off the kitchen, together with extra garden chairs if needed. An HD TV, DVD player and iPod docking station/speakers are situated in the sitting room. Wifi is avialable throughout the property. Each bedroom has a hair dryer and Roberts radio. A boot rack, umbrellas and dog bowls are kept in the Boot Room, usually the main entrance and exit to the cottage in day to day use.

Electricity and heating costs are included in the price of your accommodation. The cottage benefits from oil-fired central heating and both the sitting room and dining room feature wood-burning stoves. A basket of logs and kindling will be left in autumn & winter for the wood burning stoves to get your started, further supplies can be purchased locally.

Location

Car: necessary

Brushford is situated on the southern edge of Exmoor National Park, the village boasts a 13th Century Church which was said to have been visited by Elizabeth I. Brushford is a small community 2 miles from Dulverton, one of the principle towns within Exmoor National Park, and around 10 miles through the park to the coast at Dunster, Porlock or Lynmouth.

Situated on a tributary of the River Exe, Dulverton is a centre for walking, riding and fishing, and is well served by several good restaurants, pubs and antique shops as well as an excellent range of local shops including small supermarket, butcher, greengrocer, baker, delicatessen and fish & chip shop.

There is a wide choice of picturesque walks from the Old School House, the owners' favourite being along the river bank into Dulverton – an ideal Sunday morning stroll for papers and coffee.
