From the photo Ithought this cottage might be in a small housing estate such as you get in some small country villages these days, but no, it's a real country cottage down a lovely lane, great for walking out from in this pristine part of England. Cosy, warm and very well equipped, one feels privileged to be in such a lovely home, as all the comments in the visitors' book testify to. Everyone wants to come back! Handy hose pipe to help make your dog fit to enter after glorious muddy winter walks! Maps and walking guides provided as well as games, Netfli , YouTube, etc. A basket of firewood provided, bathrooms a dream, plenty of space, what more could you want?
I've probably said too much, you'll be thinking I'm a friend of the owners!
We rented the cottage for the Christmas week. It is about half a mile from the centre of Exford, an easy walk but you need a torch (supplied) after dark. The cottage is cosy, well equipped and clean. The bedrooms and bathrooms are particularly good. Pheasants and robins frequent the back garden. Although close to a road there is little passing traffic.
There is good wifi and a smart tv.
There are two wood burners if you want to light them (not necessary as there is good central heating), and the basket of logs supplied will last a couple of days. If you need more they are easily obtained from a neighbour.
Two decent pubs and a village store complete the picture. Lots of good walks and there is plenty of information in the cottage regarding other activities.
We were more than happy with Pipits.
