Description

The brook babbles and the birds sing in glorious Exmoor greenery. Watch the sun rise from your king size retreat upstairs and set from the pretty garden. And it’s all yours, just the two of you.

Devon delight

Think high, high ceilings, beam features, floods of Devon sunlight and through the many windows, glorious views of Exmoor. Exquisitely restored, this barn makes a very special hideaway deep in the countryside where it’s just you two and the sounds of nature.

Nestling near the banks of a bubbling river and in the heart of the very picturesque Doone Valley, Keeper’s Cottage offers picture-perfect views from every single window. Take in the woodland – resplendent in autumn but pretty at any time of year – the rolling pasture and all that absolute peace and quiet. Country hideaways really don’t come any better.

Inside is surprisingly spacious with a lovely open-plan living area bathed in natural light and replete with comfortable details. You can only sit back and relax on the deep leather sofa and armchairs – light the feature wood stove for extra warmth. Dining is intimately rustic at the pine table topped with gingham.

Cooking for two is anything but rustic in the fully-modernised kitchen where buttercup cabinetry reflects the sunlight and beech countertops gleam. You’ll find high-end appliances and the stylish Bristol sink might even persuade you not to use the dishwasher.

The stairway winds gently past a quirky stained-glass window to your sanctuary for two. Space extends everywhere, crowned by a super king offering a supreme night’s rest and panoramic views of one of Devon’s most scenic corners.

Outside, there’s your garden, beautifully kept with flowers and shrubs plus lots of perfect corners to enjoy a little something while you take in those views. Venture further outside to discover lovely walks and horse rides across Exmoor before you return home to your very own romantic retreat, made in paradise and just for two.

Bedrooms and bathrooms

Beautiful cottage in a stunning location. Fantastic walking from the front door to amazing viewpoints. Cottage was immaculately presented, really cosy and warm, with or without the woodburner. Birdwatchers be sure to take feed with you and you will be well rewarded. A wonderful stay and will definitely look to returning.
