My partner, son and his girlfriend and our two German shepherd dogs have just spent Xmas and New Year at Bridge Cottage. When we arrived, we were really impressed by the warmth and cosiness of the cottage, moreso owing to the lovely Xmas decorations provided by Anita and Tony. Hot water on demand made sharing the family bathroom easy and...

About the neighborhood
Withypool is a quiet unspoilt village situated in a shallow part of the Barle valley in the heart of the Exmoor National Park.The village has a remote, upland character and is surrounded by open moorland, much of which is common land.

It is these buildings and their setting that help contribute to Withypools character.Along the banks of the River Barle grow the withies or willow trees that give Withypool its name and, crossing the river is the characteristic six arched Withypool Bridge.
