About the neighbourhood
In the centre of Exmoor National Park on the border of Somerset and Devon. The cottage lies in a beautiful, quiet rural location beside the River Exe and only 10 minutes drive from the lovely coast. It is at Riscombe Farm and we have some sheep, goats, ponies, chickens and ducks. Lots to see and do in and around the National Park. The Exmoor area offers beautiful scenery, historic villages, lakes, rivers, beaches and is ideal for walking, cycling or just touring. Enjoy the excellent local food and drink, visit National Trust properties and travel back in time on a steam railway!
