Holiday Cottages in the Heart of the Exmoor National Park

“A secluded Georgian Country House offering Self Catering cottages in the Heart of Exmoor National Park”

Situated in our own private valley beneath Dunkery Beacon between Exford and Wheddon Cross.


“A Peaceful Haven in the Heart of Exmoor”

If you are visiting Exmoor why not choose Cutthorne as your base.  The farm lies in one of the most beautiful  parts of the Moor, come and enjoy its peace and tranquility and explore its 24 acres of fields, lakes and meet our animals first hand.  The towns of Dulverton and Dunster are within a 20 minute drive, as are the land marks of Tarr Steps and Exe Head.  Trek or cycle the wide network of bridle paths which criss-cross the rugged moorland, or take on the hill climb challenges on Dunkery Beacon and Porlock Hill.  Look out for the red deer and Exmoor ponies, or choose a bracing walk along the stunning coast path or any the pretty river valleys before returning to Cutthorne for a hot bath and a comfortable chair in front of a real fire.

“Fantastic location! Really comfortable cottage and we were warm and snug throughout our weekend stay. Chris & Freya were very welcoming hosts with great suggestions for places to visit. Cottage was well equipped and we could very easily have spent hours staring out at the lovely view from the living room. Very much hope to visit again.”

We are enjoying the first few weeks of Spring on Exmoor.  The hedges have broken and our first lambs are enjoying the new grass.  The farm is full of chicks, goslings and it looks like more duckings soon!   Despite being still a bit wet underfoot, walking is a real pleasure where ever you choose to go. We are also a great base for cycling with excellent road rides for all abilities and any number of off road routes to explore.

So come down and see us on Exmoor in 2018.   We are open throughout the year, with short and longer breaks still available throughout the Spring and Summer, or use us as your base from which to take part in the many bike, triathlon or riding events throughout the year. Please check out the cottage pages for full details of current availability and our prices.

In keeping with our green credentials we are delighted to have been awarded Trip Advisor’s Silver Award in their Greenleaders scheme, promoting environmental responsibility across the Industry and also to have retained our AirBnB Super Host status for another year.
