High Bullen sits in an elevated position in the heart of Exmoor's finest riding country. Just over a mile from the village of Barbrook and 3 miles from the twin coastal villages of Lynton & Lynmouth, the estate combines the peace and freedom of the open moor with easy access to all the facilities and amenities of the twin villages.
From Barbrook, a lane leads up to the moor. Where the lane stops at a cattle grid, a track to the right leads to High Bullen's gate and cattle grid. A concrete drive leads down past fields to a car park on the left, with space for 10+ cars, and on past the stable blocks and indoor school on the left side. On the right side, a wrought-iron gate opens into the farmhouse's beautiful & established gardens.
A path leads through into the cottage gardens towards the back of the house. The rear garden is raised slightly above the house and reached by a short flight of stone steps. This garden is mainly laid to lawn, with mature herbaceous borders and a central pond. Beside the lawn are a timber storage shed and the timber summerhouse. The path leads to the kitchen door and continues round the house to
