Dolly's House is the former stables on the Cockerham Estate, set in 15 acres of rolling Devon countryside, and is named after one of the owner's rescued Dartmoor ponies. Dolly's is a great base for exploring nearby Exmoor, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A good choice of shops, pubs and tearooms are just five minutes drive away in the market town of South Molton. For a change of scenery the spectacular North Devon Coastline and golden beaches are within 30 minutes, whilst a day trip to historic Exeter is another option. On the Estate, guests are able to use the shared tennis court, in the well-kept grounds. The owners are often on hand if you'd like to know learn more about the alpacas, horses, chickens and birdlife. You are more than welcome to watch the animals being fed in the field, help collect the eggs and if you time it right, watch the alpacas being shorn in June. With advanced notice, the owners can also organise cookery weekends, local riding lessons, also both pheasant and clay shooting breaks (please note: booking and payment arrangements made directly with the owners or the relevant provider).
Dolly's makes the most of its south facing aspect and the brick path leads across the lawn to the front door, inside the house has a wonderful open plan living area with the original oak pillars adding to its unique character. Comfy sofas and armchairs surround a woodburning stove set in the fireplace, creating a warm and cosy atmosphere. The well equipped kitchen with range cooker is to one end of the generous living space along with the dining table. Just off the living area through the French door is a wonderful courtyard sheltered by the stone walls and with far reaching views across the Devon countryside, ideal for al fresco meals. The house also has a downstairs cloakroom. Accommodation is very comfortable with quality furniture and upstairs the house has a double bedroom with en suite shower room, a further double room and two twin bedded rooms. In addition there is a family bathroom.
Dolly's is located next to Milk Churn, another holiday cottage on the Estate.
