Withypool cottage holiday


Map showing Winstitchen Farmhouse

Winstitchen is located at the very heart of Exmoor National Park. Winstitchen is an ideal spot for friends, families or just couples to escape and relax, in total peace and quiet, with only the wildlife for company! Enjoy a walk along the River Barle which flows just below Winstitchen and can be followed to Withypool, where you will be welcomed in the Royal Oak public house for that refreshing pint and local snack. Or follow some of the many miles of footpaths and bridleways crossing the moors and woodland, without a road in sight. Winstitchen is found at the end of a tarmac drive lined with beech trees enjoying uninterrupted views over moor land with direct access on to the moor for walking and riding. Approached through a five-bar gate the farmhouse, and stables create an attractive courtyard with circular lawn. The front door opens into a large reception hall, which has views to the courtyard.

Sleeps 10 in 4 bedrooms: Master bedroom with king size double and en-suite bathroom. Bed 2 with king size bed and en suite bathroom. Bed 3 with king size and single bed plus en-suite bathroom.

Living Rooms: Opening from the hall is the drawing room. This is a large well-proportioned room with French doors and windows opening onto the garden, and extensive views to the moor. There are plenty of comfortable sofas and armchairs and a large wood-burning stove.
