Cranscombe Barn is a beautifully renovated barn conversion situated in a quiet location in the Exmoor National Park. Sleeping four people, the character cottage has beamed ceilings, thick walls with deep sill window seats and latched doors which are complemented by modern, contemporary furniture. External stairs lead up to the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner which has stunning views over the surrounding countryside. This cosy room has a woodburner in the original fireplace, a high apex ceiling with exposed cross beams and a wooden floor. The kitchen area is well laid out and a circular dining table provides a natural divide between the lounge and kitchen. Downstairs, both of the bedrooms are beautifully furnished and share the use of a large, modern bathroom with a bath and separate walk-in shower. Outside, the cottage has a decked area with garden furniture and a rough, sloping grassy area to the side, There are many pathways and bridleways surrounding Cranscombe Barn including a private right of way to open moorland and a footpath leading from the cottage to the riverside pub in Rockford. There are also riverside walks towards Watersmeet and Lynmouth. The village of Brendon, scattered along the East Lyn valley, is just a couple of miles away. A path from Brendon will take you to Lynmouth via the famous beauty spot of Watersmeet,  Some of the country’s most dramatic cliffs can be found nearby and the surfing beaches of Woolacombe and Croyde are within an hour’s drive.

I have stayed in many holiday cottages, homes, etc. The standard of furnishings and amenities was very high. The location was stunning, a real escape. My only negative feedback? The washing machine wouldn't work (or I couldn't figure out how to work it)
