Picture waking every morning to the sound of the river Exe flowing through the field in front of this charming converted barn. This section of the river is perfect for fishing or paddling, or just to find a quiet spot to sit and ponder. Although this home's in a secluded Exmoor valley, it's just a short walk along the riverbank to the village of Exford, where you can pick up some groceries, visit your local pub or go for afternoon tea. Your hosts can also provide you with fresh produce from the very farm where you'll be staying, including freshly laid eggs, lamb and homemade sausages. So all you have to do is get creative in the kitchen and impress your other half with a romantic meal. After dinner, curl by the fireplace with a glass of wine and plan the next day's adventures. With brilliant walks in every direction and the stunning Exmoor coast just a short drive away, you won't be short of options.
Home truths: * You are welcome to bring a well-behaved dog but be aware this is a working smallholding so it must be kept under control around the livestock
* You can prebook breakfast or dinner hampers with meat and other produce from the smallholding – contact your host in advance to arrange this
*There is ample on-site parking for multiple cars
