The Gearing is one of four beautifully renovated stone cottages situated in the middle of stunning countryside on the edge of Exmoor National Park in the small hamlet of Cove. Restored to a high standard from original farm buildings using ECO friendly under floor heating, each cottage is slightly different and benefits from its own private patio with outside furniture and the use of a utility room with washing machines and tumble dryer. They all overlook a beautiful lawned garden with well-stocked flowerbeds and a special touch is the use of an outdoor Jacuzzi Spa Pool. The cottages are found down a single track partly unmade lane next to the main farmhouse – Marwood Farm – and a discount of 10% is available should all of the cottages be booked together for a group of family or friends. Sleeping two people and a dog, The Gearing has a stunning open-plan lounge/kitchen/dining room with floor to ceiling windows and door. There is a large comfortable settee and tub chair positioned around the large 40” television to relax in and a modern, well-equipped kitchen. On the mezzanine level above the living area, you’ll find the bedroom and spacious shower room. Outside, there is ample parking, a level lawned garden and ofcourse the luxurious jacuzzi, which is available from the end of March to the end of October, plus Christmas and New Year. There are plenty of stunning walks available from Marwood Farm – the small town of Bampton is just three miles away and has a good choice of shops, pubs and restaurants. Further afield, Tiverton is a 10 minute drive away. Here you can visit Bickleigh Mill, one of Devon’s largest rural shopping, eating and recreation destination which is housed within an 18th century historic working water mill.
