A charming three-bedroom detached stone cottage with garage, parking, garden and lovely views, in the stunningly pretty Brendon Valley in Exmoor. Ideal for a family home, retirement or holiday letting. Needing some modernisation, hence reasonable price.


Combesfoot is constructed of local stone with painted exterior walls under a tiled roof. It is located in a magical valley setting, beside a narrow country lane, a short walk across a pasture field from the East Lyn River and the wooded hillside beyond.

The property is approached from the quiet country lane outside though its own gravelled parking & turning area. (Space for three to four cars.). There are stone walls either side of the wide entrance and a garage at the rear.

Garden

A good-sized rear garden, with lovely views along the valley and to the wooded slopes across the river and arranged in several levels with stone-faced banks. The garden includes several areas of lawn, vegetable area, a former chicken run with purpose-built hen house, and a greenhouse. Behind the garden is a wooded slope with open fields beyond.

Location

Combesfoot is located on the lane between Rockford and its near neighbour Brendon, tiny villages set in the beautiful “hidden” Brendon Valley near the northern coast of Exmoor National Park. The village of Brendon, and the valley which shares its name, are well known to readers of Lorna Doone as the picturesque setting for RD Blackmore’s classic adventure. Nearby are also Oare Church, Malmesmead and Robbers Bridge, which feature prominently throughout the book. There are two good pubs nearby: the Rockford Inn and the Staghunters Inn, Brendon, each about a mile away. The twin village of Lynton & Lynmouth is about four miles away with scenic cliffs, beach, historic harbour and a good range of shops, pubs, restaurants, churches, a primary school, library and even a cinema

Exmoor

Exmoor National Park offers over 260 square miles of dramatic scenery including some of Britain’s highest cliffs, steep wooded valleys, rolling pasture and mile after mile of open moorland. It is a haven for a wide range of wildlife including deer, Exmoor ponies, buzzards and other birds of prey. Exmoor’s reputation as one of the finest areas in England for both walking and riding is richly deserved.
