On the edge of the Exmoor National Park, Beaples Barton is a substantial country house with two delightful cottages that have been newly refurbished and equipped for the 2018 season. Located in a hidden and peaceful location, sheltered by the surrounding woodland and overlooking a lake and meadow, Coombe Cottage offers a wonderful rural retreat and a great base from which to explore the whole of Devon.  Wonderful Exmoor country views can be enjoyed and local wildlife including Exmoor Red deer, buzzards, hawks and a huge variety of bird life can be regularly observed. Visitors are welcome to roam the 75acres of grounds, fish in the lake and enjoy clay pigeon shooting(strictly by arrangement). This delightful location offers  plenty of walking and riding opportunities whilst the rugged Exmoor coastline or the sandy surfing beaches of Saunton, Westward Ho! and Croyde are easily accessible due to the excellent access to the North Devon Link road.  The small village of Knowstone is just 1.5 miles by road (or much closer for those on foot via tracks and bridleways) where the Masons Arm Pub and restaurant boasts a Michelin Star. Many other villages and market towns with their own individual attractions, farmers markets, pubs and eateries are within a 15 minute drive whilst the historic city of Exeter with its cathedral and large shopping centre just 25miles away provides a wonderful day out.
