Wifi is included (but it's not high speed internet in rural Exmoor!) The water is supplied by a natural spring (UV treated). The three bedrooms are all on the first floor. The largest bedroom has a double bed and a single bed, so it can be used as a double or a twin. There is a further double bedroom and twin bedroom also. Note this cottage has has a maximum of 4 guests. Church Farm is ideally suited for those wishing to explore Exmoor, it literally sits on the edge of the moor with fantastic walking direct from the door. The farmhouse is just below the little 13th century church at Stoke Pero. There is an attractive front garden with seating. Stoke Pero is a tiny hamlet set high on the moor above Porlock. Stoke is Old English for 'outlying farmstead or hamlet', which sums up Stoke Pero perfectly! The Pero probably comes from the Landowners in the middle ages. The views from the common across Exmoor and to the Bristol Channel are quite outstanding on a clear day. Stoke Pero Church (next door to Chruch Farm) is reputedly the highest church in Somerset, at 300m above sea-level. It is high up on the side of the moor. The church is only Victorian, although it looks quite old. It's alleged that all the material for it was carried up from Porlock by one donkey (at first you probably exclaim 'that's some donkey!''? But it turns out that the donkey made several trips!) As Stoke Pero is located on the top of Exmoor, if you are unhappy about driving up steep hills or through fords, it is recommended that you approach from Exford, following the Porlock / Luccombe roads. Parking is on the roadside beside the cottage (it's a very quiet road). A small part of the farmhouse has been made into a one-bedroom apartment which is used by the owners with separate access. They will be on hand to answer any questions you may have during your stay but will otherwise leave you to your own devices. The adjacent farm buildings house the owners horses, dogs, chickens and sheep.More
