Dunkery View is a cosy two bedroom cob and thatch cottage situated on the Holnicote estate close to Troytes Farmhouse. Unusually, it is built into the east end of the Tivington Chapel-of-Ease (very rarely used) dedicated to St Leonard’s. This pretty cottage is perfectly placed for exploring the Exmoor National Park and coastal spots such as Bossington Beach and Porlock Weir are within easy distance. The cottage has a country-style garden with spectacular views of Dunkery Beacon and Exmoor.
Heating: night storage heating included.
Garden: Country-style enclosed garden enjoying spectacular views of Dunkery Beacon and Exmoor.
Parking: There is parking available for one car at the rear of the cottage.
Please Note: The cottage adjoins the ancient Chapel of Ease of Tivington which is used very occasionally throughout the year for Services - please call for further details. The cottage sitting room was originally used as the Vestry for the church.
Offers: Holiday Cottage guests get a discount at the Selworthy National Trust shop and café.
No two days are the same across these three beautiful counties; from Wiltshire's dreamy downland and the stone circles of Avebury and Stonehenge, Dorset's coastal beauty and bucolic charms, and the wilds of Exmoor and Quantocks in Somerset â€“ their wide open spaces and historical sites draws people back again and again.
North Devon with its outstanding coast, glorious moorland, plunging wooded valleys and remote, unchanging rural landscapes inland - has so much to offer the visitor, no matter what type of holiday you are looking for. While on the coast you will find miles of sandy beaches at places like Woolacombe and Croyde, and some of the finest surf in Britain (whether you?re a beginner or a pro), interspersed by long and lonely stretches of dramatic soaring cliffs and rugged headlands, with the South West Coast Path running all the way along the coast, guaranteeing some exhilarating walking, the beautiful wooded valleys and winding rivers of Exmoor National Park add a softer touch to the landscape around the fringes of the high bare moorland. To the north of Exmoor are the dramatically picturesque seaside towns of Lynton and Lynmouth and to their west, the pretty villages of Parracombe and Combe Martin are the gateways to some breathtaking valley and coastal scenery. This is a landscape which captured the imagination of the 19th century Romantic poets and provided the inspiration for Lorna Doone and continues to thrill and delight all who discover it today. The River Heddno runs through Parracombe and then down through the wooded Heddon Valley, a paradise for butterflies and wild flowers, before reaching the sea at heddon\'s Mouth. Combe Martin is a fomer mining village in a sheltered valley that reaches the sea at a beach and harbour beneath the towering drama of the heath-clad cliffs of Little Hangman, with Great Hangman beyond. Like the Heddon Valley, a good network of footpaths here allows for some splendid and challenging walks to be enjoyed through this remarkable landscape. Nearby is lovely Arlington Court with its estate, house and garden and the National Trust Carriage Museum. Ilfracombe, Barnstaple and Bideford bring a bit of seaside sparkle. Inland, there are historic market towns and hidden villages in the lovely unspoilt valleys of the Taw and the Torridge. Activities in the area include birdwatching, cycling, fishing, horse riding, surfing, walking and water sports.
