Stepping stones across the lawn take you to the pretty two bedroom, dog friendly Lower Leys Cottage, which is part of a semi-detached barn conversion in the heart of the Exmoor National Park.
The cottage has been tastefully redecorated and re-furnished using soft pastel colours and quality furnishings throughout. The attention to detail can be seen is the double lined curtains and subtly painted floorboards, which give the cottage a relaxed atmosphere complemented by the stunning Exmoor countryside. The cottage accepts two dogs, and is ideal for those looking to go on long walks with the dog across Exmoor. Stabling and turnout are also available for anyone wishing to bring their horse.
Step into the hallway and on into the sitting room with its natural wood floors and gorgeous country views. Here you’ll also find a TV and a DVD player. The lounge has two sofas, one cream leather Conrad designer sofa and a tartan sofa, ideal for relaxing and enjoying the country views. At the other end of the hallway you’ll find your well-equipped kitchen/dining room with an electric cooker, a microwave, a fridge, a freezer, a washing machine/dryer and a dishwasher. There’s also a ground floor cloakroom.
Outside, you have your own large garden and alfresco dining area, complete with barbecue. From the garden the views of Exmoor are truly magnificent.
Upstairs at the cottage there are two good sized bedrooms, both of which have zip and link beds allowing the rooms to be made up as either a double or a twin depending on your requirements. Both bedrooms also have en-suite bathrooms, one has a shower, whilst the other a bath with overhead shower attachment.
Lower Leys Cottage can be booked in conjunction with Middle Leys Cottage, which sleeps up to six in three bedrooms. Together they accommodate up to 10 in five bedrooms. Both properties are dog friendly.
Approached by a shared country track, it is surrounded by the owners land, home to their animals and dogs. Lower Leys Cottage is located deep in the heart of Exmoor and yet only a few miles from the classic Exmoor village of Withypool where you will find a pub, a tea room and a shop.
There are several excellent places to eat within easy reach and there are rural heritage sites all over Exmoor, with one of the oldest bridges – Tarr Steps only a vigorous walk or a short car journey away. The River Barle is within walking distance, while Dunster Castle and some of the best beaches in the UK, are a short drive from the cottage.
Lower Leys Cottage offers a fantastic base for walking, hiking, horse riding and many other country pursuits.
