We shared a short break pre Christmas holiday here with our daughter and family, who have holidayed here several times. Cartwheel Cottage was delightful, so comfortable, with a log burner, that was so efficient, warm and easy.. A great location for walking, either locally around the cottage surroundings, or exploring the delights of Exmoor itself which is close by. The...

All three cottages at Whitechapel, have a wonderful vibe, they are quirky, cosy, and have a loved and homely feel. The scenery is stunning, we were lucky to have autumn colours but every season will give a beautiful back ground. Chris gave us a giggle on the lake in his canoes, he was charming and patient even though we were...

I only have good things to say about our stay in Whitechapel Cottages. The accommodation had everything a large group needs. Plenty of space and Chris couldn't do enough for us. The hot tub was great and the games room brilliant for bad weather. The setting is stunning and I can recommend having a canoeing outing on the lake, such...

About the neighbourhood
Whitechapel is extremely well placed for exploring the whole of North Devon. We are also situated within an hour's journey of Dartmoor, meaning South Devon is easily within reach too. <BR><BR>Exmoor, one of the smallest of Britain's National Parks, is also known as Lorna Doone country as it is the base of R.D. Blackmore's famous novel of the same name. Amongst the beautiful moorland lie several beautiful villages including Dunster - with its magnificent Dunster Castle. Exford is the ideal base to explore the ancient Tarr Steps and to take part in fishing, shooting and riding. Journey time by car to the moor is approximately 10 minutes.
