Wheddon Cross cottage holiday


Map showing Bailiffs Cottage, North Quarme

Bailiff’s Cottage is nestled in a private valley, part of a 250 acre farm on Exmoor in the National Park. The cottage has a truly beautiful and peaceful setting and has been sensitively restored to the highest quality to create a warm, cosy and very comfortable holiday retreat. Underfloor heating throughout, a large well equipped kitchen, sitting room with wood burning stove, SKY TV, CD players, bedrooms with luxurious bed-linen, it is perfect for families, groups or couples. The cottage sits privately away from the main farmhouse, with its own pretty south facing garden, terrace and lawn that runs down to a stream and ford. Unusually, the farm has no public right of way and so guests can enjoy their stay knowing that they are not going to bump into anyone, except the 300 sheep, goats, llamas and ponies. Wildlife is deliberately encouraged and many red deer frequent the farm. Not totally isolated, there is a village shop and pub. Dunster, Dulverton and the coast are within easy reach.
