Westcott Cross Cottage is surrounded by a huge secure, child and dog safe garden with totally unspoilt views over the Exmoor hills. The large garden provides plenty of space for relaxation or for children to play in and give the property privacy (the little stone building seen in some of the pictures is a storage barn, not another cottage).

There is a patio area with picnic table tucked to the side of the house, making the most of a sheltered position with stunning views up and down the valley.

There is also direct access to a footpath which leads down to the stream and beyond. In the other direction the path leads to endless forestry and heather heathland tracks for walking and cycling.

Outside dog kennel beside the patio.

Parking for three-plus cars on the private drive

Pets Welcome

2 x dog(s) allowed (£25.00)

This is a dog-friendly property. We’d prefer them to be left in the entrance porch/bootroom. Certainly not on the furniture or upstairs. There is an outside kennel large enough for a number of dogs. But please be wary in sunny weather as it can become extremely hot. One perspex panel can be removed to allow good air circulation but it can still get very warm on a sunny day.
