À propos de ce logement
Royal Oak Farm is a detached, thatched holiday cottage full of character and charm. It is situated in the heart of Winsford, one of Exmoor's prettiest villages, and boasts large living areas and an enclosed garden. It is ideal for family and friends.
The cottage is in the heart of Exmoor, with instant access to spectacular walks in the surrounding moorland, woods and twisting rivers. There is amazing abundance of wildlife in the form of birds, deer, fish and ponies.
The bird life in the garden is incredible, which makes eating outside during the summer months extremely enjoyable.
Dulverton is located 6 miles away and is renowned for its unique shops, homely restaurants and scrumptious tearooms. Highlights include a visit to Tarr Steps and Dunkery Beacon (the highest point on Exmoor). Wimball Lake is a short drive away where you can enjoy sailing, canoeing, angling or the beautiful wildlife. Other local highlights include Dunster Castle, the Holnicote Estate, Lee Bay, the Valley of the Rocks, the West Somerset Railway and superb coastal walks with stunning scenery. Safaris across Exmoor to see the red deer can be arranged through local companies. Fishing, hunting and shooting are also available. The villages of Porlock Weir, Exford, Lynton and Lynmouth are worth exploring. In the summer an evening swim at Porlock Weir, followed by a drink at Millers or the Ship Inn is hard to beat!!
