Gamekeepers Cottage is surrounded by stunning countryside, yet only one mile from the coast and a short walk downhill to a well-known Exmoor pub. This cute, cosy cottage, which provides a home-from-home for four people plus their two dogs, is less than half a mile from Hunter’s Inn – one of the area’s most famous character inns situated in the stunning Heddon Valley. Offering spacious accommodation, Gamekeepers Cottage is one of only three cottages situated down a private drive near Martinhoe, a small village between Combe Martin and Lynton. A covered front patio leads directly into the open-plan lounge/diner which has a lovely wrought iron staircase leading up to the first floor and an electric fire in the stone fireplace; whilst the modern kitchen is well-equipped with everything you need to rustle up a delicious holiday meal. Completing the accommodation downstairs, there is a spacious bedroom with a large window to the front and a king-size and single bed, and a family bathroom. Upstairs, there is a beautiful veranda which has stunning views along the valley and toward the sea and at the rear is a twin bedded room. Gamekeepers Cottage is true paradise for nature lovers. Surrounded by lush green countryside, there are numerous footpaths taking you along the river, through wooden valleys and towards Heddons Mouth. The National Trust specifically promotes a walk through ancient woodland alongside the River Heddon, to where it meets the sea between some of England's highest cliffs. Designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest, the Heddon Valley is home to a variety of wildlife including otters and the rare high brown fritillary butterfly. You'll also find a restored 19th-century lime kiln on the beach. A ten-minute walk downhill takes you to the Hunters Inn where you will not only be able to taste the best in local cuisine, but will be able to wander through the immaculate gardens.

A Gem of a cottage set in rolling hills with a sea view down the Heddon Valley. An outstanding area of natural beauty,coastal walks,and within reach of Exmore National Park and the holiday resorts along the North Devon/Somerset coast. Loved the cottage very comfortable and spacious. Had a large shower ,plenty of hot water and the central heating worked a treat for those cooler evenings. Loved our stay would recommend.
