The property is also convenient for exploring the vast expanses of the Exmoor National Park and although Exmoor is one of the smallest National Parks it is probably one of the most attractive with a wide variety of scenery ranging from the high moorland (over 1700 feet at Dunkery Beacon), deep wooded river valleys and quaint villages. The moor provides a range of outdoor facilities and activities including walking, riding, fishing on the Barle and Exe together with a range of wildlife.

Proceed for approximately 3 miles and on reaching West Quantoxhead (St Audries) take the first left hand turn sign posted Doniford and Watchet, follow the road for approximately half a mile where the property will be found on the right hand side.
