“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 self catering cottages in the Heart of Exmoor National Park as your base. The farm lies in one of the most beautiful parts of the Moor, come and enjoy its peace and tranquility. Explore our 24 acres of fields and 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 of the pretty river valleys before returning to Cutthorne for a hot bath and a comfortable chair in front of the wood burner.

Our second stay at the Ballroom was the cosy stay we were expecting, despite the deluge of storm Alex. The cottage was clean and comfortable and due to their generous air break policy between guests, felt very safe to be in. The cottage has everything needed for a cosy warm autumn stay and the views are so lovely, even when shrouded in cloud…. Chris and Freya are on hand if needed but leave you well alone. We can wholeheartedly recommend and will hopefully return again.
