Map showing Leys Cottage

Leys Cottages comprise two beautiful Exmoor cottages; one a barn conversion the other an original farmhouse. They are located deep in the heart of Exmoor and yet only a few miles from the classic Exmoor village of Withypool with two renowned pubs offering superb food and local Exmoor ales. Approached by a shared country track, it is surrounded by the owners land, home to their animals and dogs. There are several excellent eating places within easy reach and there are rural heritage sites all over Exmoor, with one of the oldest bridges – Tarr Steps – within easy reach as a vigorous walk or short car journey. The River Barle is within walking distance, while Dunster Castle and some of the best beaches in the UK, are a short drive away. Leys Cottages offer a fantastic base for walking, hiking, horse riding and many other country pursuits. As with everywhere in North Devon the cottages are within easy reach of the coast as well as being in the middle of Exmoor.

Leys Cottage - Sleeps 6 in 3 Bedrooms. Parking for up to 3 good sized cars. Follow the path to the French doors that welcome you into the well equipped kitchen/dining room with its oil-fired Aga, gas hob, electric oven, combination microwave, fridge freezer, washing machine / dryer and dishwasher. Step through into the sitting room with its 3 large comfortable sofas that frame the room and its focus point – the stove which burns both wood and coal. Here you’ll also find freeview TV, DVD player, CD and cassette tape player. And outside, you’ll discover the lovely garden and alfresco dining area, complete with barbecue. Upstairs are your double bedrooms: Master bedroom – with its beautiful views, 5ft double bed, and large en suite shower, toilet and hand basin. Second bedroom – with its ‘zip and link’ bed that gives you the option of twins or queen. This bedroom has a TV and video. Third double bedroom - with its double bed, bedside cabinets. Bathroom has a bath with shower attachment, toilet, bidet and basin.

Outside: The sister cottages, Leys Cottage and Foxtwitchen, are nestled high at the heart of beautiful Exmoor National, Leys Park. Leys Cottage looks down over woodland coombes and open moorland to Withypool Common. Approached by a shared country track, it is surrounded by the owners land, home to their animals and dogs. The properties provide the perfect base for exploring, walking and hiking. Coast/Beach: Leys Cottages are within 20 minutes drive of the glorious North Devon beaches of Puttsburough, Saunton and the surfing village of Croyde. Golf: Whilst most of the best golf courses in North Devon are near the coast they can be reached within a 30 mins. drive. These include, Saunton Sands a major Championship links course and Royal North Devon at Westward Ho! which is the oldest golf course in the UK.
