Located in the glorious surroundings of Exmoor National Park on the Devon/Somerset border, it's just five miles from Dulverton and within easy reach of the coastal towns of Porlock, Lynton and Lynmouth. Our lovingly restored cottage is situated on West Hollowcombe Farm with three other character holiday cottages. You have shared access to sixty acres of the owner's fields and woodlands, part of which has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest. The friendly owners live on site and guarantee a very warm welcome! Mini guests are well looked after with shared use of a well-established adventure playground as well as selection of ride-on toys. The cottage also offers a choice of books and games, as well as useful baby and toddler gear including cots and highchairs. Norton Cottage has upside down living accommodation, with an open plan living space on the first floor to take in the superb views over the open countryside. This spacious area has an airy feel with scissor beamed ceilings, and comprises a sitting area with valley and woodland views and a dining kitchen with views across the front lawned area and moorland beyond. With the added benefit of a warming wood burning stove in the sitting area, perfect for cooler evenings, this cottage provides a very comfortable holiday home. Downstairs are two well-presented en suite bedrooms comprising a king size double and a twin/double bedroom. We can also provide a travel cot, highchair and stairgate if you have a little one in tow, although cot linen is not provided. Outside, your private patio is a delightful spot to sit and relax at any time of day and you have shared use of a well-established adventure playground and lawned garden. Well-behaved dogs, other pets and horses are welcome, the latter being accommodated on a DIY livery basis.

Or simply relax amongst magnificent views and wildlife and enjoy the absolute peace and quiet! A wide variety of moorland birds and mammals such as hares and rabbits, stoats and weasels, to say nothing of red deer, are regular visitors. Additionally Exmoor ponies are often to be seen grazing on adjoining common land. The Two Moors Way passes the gate and, for the energetic, numerous other walks are accessible directly from the cottage. A host of other country pursuits within easy reach include watersports, fishing, pony trekking, shooting, bird watching and mountain biking. The owners are very keen on the environment and help to manage the SSSI area of marsh and woodlands in their grounds with the help of Exmoor National Park. The marsh land next to the river, which has not been cultivated for hundreds of years, makes an ideal spot for many rare plants and wildlife, especially the Heath Fritillary, one of the rarest butterflies in this country. The SSSI extends off into the woodlands and the owners are sympathetically managing this to promote its flora and fauna, with rare lichens on some of the older trees and fallen trunks providing great homes for all sorts of creatures. Norton Cottage is an ideal base to explore the North Devon coast and its picturesque villages including Porlock, Lynton and Lynmouth. Dulverton, considered to be the southern gateway to Exmoor, is 10 minuMore
