In a peaceful and picturesque location on the edge of the Exmoor National Park this delightful cottage offers a wonderful rural retreat and a great base from which to explore the whole of Devon. Deceptively spacious, comfortably furnished and very well equipped throughout, Dassel Cottage is situated within 16 acres of pasture and woodland and offers wonderful views of the Exmoor countryside . The warm and welcoming living room has a quality leather suite with electric reclining seats surrounding a woodburner in a feature stone fireplace. A spacious kitchen/diner and adjacent utility room provides everything you will need to prepare meals for family and friends and these can be enjoyed either indoors or alfresco style on the rear private patio. A comfortably furnished conservatory leads off the dining area and overlooks the large rear garden and is ideal for quiet relaxation and enjoying the country views.  On the first floor there are two attractive bedrooms and a family shower room. A spacious double bedroom with dual aspect country views has the benefit of additional comfy seating and a twin bedded room across the landing has an adjacent dressing room.   The cottage has an attractive front garden area and an enclosed rear garden giving plenty of space for relaxation, children’s play and space for the dog (Please note that the garden is not necessarily dog proof). A  five bar gate gives access into an adjoining meadow ideal for dog walking and the owner is happy for guests to roam the 16 acres of land surrounding the cottage. The Exmoor National Park with its spectacular coastline, inspirational scenery and miles of public footpaths makes this an ideal location for walkers.  The market town of South Molton, known as the Gateway to Exmoor is just a 10 minute drive whilst the larger county town of Barnstaple offering great shopping opportunities as well as entertainments is only 15minutes away. With the North Devon Link Road just a few minutes’ drive there is also easy access to the sandy surfing beaches of Saunton and Croyde, the rugged coastline of the Hartland Penninsula and onwards into North Cornwall.

The property and location was stunning. The views outstanding. Alison was very friendly and helpful upon arrival and throughout our stay. The furnishings are of a very high standard and the conservatory a lovely bonus. The dogs had a lovely time exploring the garden and the extended 16 acres available to guests. Would highly recommend and will be staying again in future

Past Customer,

Lovely, peaceful, comfortable house. Very well and 5* accommodation with lovely extras. Hope to return in the future. Thank you

Past Customer,

This was our 2nd visit and we think that speaks for itself. A wonderful location, perfect cottage to be at one with the beautiful rural location. Peaceful & tranquil. Comfortable, warm and has everything we needed. If you get the chance have a seat in the lovely conservatory and loose yourself in the rolling countryside view, which is particularly amazing of an evening and the sunsets are just stunning. Alison and her family are amazing, so welcoming, friendly and down to earth. We couldn’t ask for anything more. We look forward very much to our next visit, which hopefully won’t be too long away. Thank you again

Mr benjamin a,

We had a wonderful stay. Perfect cottage and superb location. Owners were very friendly and great with our son. We were very comfortable, lounge and bedrooms particularly comfortable. Loved the conservatory with the uninterrupted view of the rolling countryside. We loved our stay so much that we have re booked for May half term. We cannot wait to return.

Mr benjamin a,
