Dairy Cottage, and its neighbouring property Granary Cottage, is situated on the outskirts of Exmoor National Park near a village called Swimbridge and is surrounded by stunning countryside.

Sleeping six people, this characterful cottage has exposed stone work and beamed ceilings, a cosy living room and a private lawned garden with a river border. The nearest pub is just 300 yards away and there are plenty of pathways and bridleways running near the cottage. The large living room has plenty of seating around the fireplace for the whole group, a bed settee for a couple, and lovely views. The open-plan kitchen/diner has a small dining table and well-equipped kitchen. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms – a Twin and a Double with an en-suite shower room. There is a modern family bathroom for the occupants of the Twin room and the bed settee in the living room to share.

Outside, the garden is about 20 yards away from the cottage and has a fence and river border. Swimbridge is about four miles south-east of Barnstaple and twinned with the town of St. Honorine Du Fay in Normandy, France. It the home of the Rev. John “Jack” Russell who developed the Jack Russell terrier and is noted for its church - The Church of St. James -  which has been described as a “treasure house” due to its fine carvings and memorials.

Nearby Barnstaple is well worth a visit - it is a charming place that comfortably blends a handsome past with an energetic, present-day buzz. It has a mix of cutting-edge retail outlets, long-established family owned stores and little boutiques. The pannier market hosts local food producers interspersed with dozens of cafes. At weekends, Barnstaple makes wandering the streets a distinct pleasure, with performers and musicians out to entertain.
