We stayed in the thatched cottage this time, although we have stayed in the larger cottage too on previous visits; both are beautifuly equipped and presented. We know the area well, but these cottages enhance the experience even further. The cottages are off the beaten track and so our holiday was quiet and peaceful, but Dulverton and the rest of this part of Somerset/Devon are easily accessible. We try to go back to this part of the country every year or so and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- "Just imagine coming home after a long hike over the moors to a whirlpool bath or a roaring fire." The Devon Longhouse with adjacent barns and court yard has an air of rural France. Situated on the edge of Exmoor, 4 miles from the picturesque town of Dulverton, and within easy access to both coasts. The farmhouse is set within 190 acres of pasture land and is approached via a private single track lane allowing peace and seclusion with lovely views. This is a non-working farm and offers a safe environment for children and pets. Both cottages, featuring ancient beams and exposed stonework, have been thoughtfully converted and are very clean and well equipped. Anstey Mills Thatched Cottage (65 sqm – one galleried bedroom) is a recent addition offering a luxurious whirlpool bath and under floor heating, being detached but near the owner’s 16th century Devon Longhouse. Anstey Mills Cottage (175 sqm – 3 bedrooms), one end of the Longhouse, is a fully self-contained comfortable and spacious holiday home with king size four poster bed and wood burner. Both cottages combined can cater for parties of up to 10/11. ... more less
