Holiday Cottages In Exmoor To Rent

Where lush countryside melts into turquoise sea and red deer speckle the landscape in quiet herds, Exmoor is without doubt one of the UK’s most picturesque holiday destinations, hiding some of the loveliest Exmoor holiday cottages within its beautiful borders. And with both International Dark Sky Reserve and National Park status, it’s a field day for holiday-makers after the UK’s sparkliest skies and best-kept attractions.

Our Exmoor holiday cottages put you right in the thick of the wilderness; surrounded not only by the largest amount wild Red Deer in England, but the UK’s highest trees, biggest cliffs, and tallest tides. For a particularly spectacular view, we suggest heading to up the funicular to the Cliff Top Cafe in Lynton, where you can enjoy a scone by the sea, before heading back to your Exmoor holiday cottage for an evening of pure south-coast relaxation.

What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages In Exmoor To Rent.

Alan - verified booking

"Unbeknownst to me, and having started at the wrong end of Appledore's esplanade, I found myself at the front door next to the 'cottage' I had stayed in with my son a few years ago !Forget 'fisherman's cottage' and think Homes and Gardens. Upon opening the door you will look into a world of elegant tones, wonderful views and everything you might need to make your stay enjoyable. Having the river, in high tide, lapping against your holiday home is sheer bliss . Blessed as I was with sunny days and just the call of the birds breaking a relaxing silence, I could not have wished for more.When the tide drops, spits of river bed are exposed and the sea birds, waders and egrets come in to rest bathe and feed upon what might have been exposed or left by the fleeing tide. I had the best amount of birds to watch and had to buy new binoculars as I had left mine at home !My greatest joy was to hear and then see Curlew, that I had recently read, have been placed on the 'RED LIST', it is tragic that we continue to lose species.I find Appledore the most soporific place and the people so friendly. A first morning trip to the newsagents, tucked away in a back street, and I am greeted by a lovely lady who recognises me, and we start were we left off, Mrs A had her hip done, working news about the shipyard ( famous and from the 1800's. has announced it will close, due to lack of orders. A severe blow ) yes, the winter was ok, have you come down for the Literary Festival, Mrs B's shop is closing and there is still a queue up the street when the Fish and Chip shop is open.Bidefords is very close with a branch of the excellent Morrisons and Barnstable is 15 to 20 mins away.All in all, one of those holiday stays when you do not want to come home and the thoughts of could I make the move will rove around in your head whilst you stay.And finally, I was to be seen lying on the pavement in front of Estate Agents window, sobbing, having just seen the prices and the properties available !I must add my thanks to the owners for such a lovely welcome hamper and a delicious bottle of wine. I toasted them with my thanks and good health."

"It's been a few weeks since we spent our Easter holiday at S18995, and I've been meaning to find the time to write a few words about our experience. The cottage was a great base to explore the area. We live in Hull, so Devon and Cornwall are quite a long drive away. We easily visited places of interest local to the cottage and farther afield.For all intents and purposes the cottage is a new build within an existing barn structure, which is great. Everything being like a new home, but with the charm of an old building. That said the barn has been converted to a very high standard, and being from a construction background, I spent a lot of time admiring the quality of the joinery.The cottage had everything we could possibly need, and the welcome pack left by the owners was a very nice touch.Whilst the cottage is in a very rural landscape, within ten minutes you're in the centre of Bideford with all the shops and facilities you could possibly need.All in all we had a great time, and we would highly recommend a holiday there."

"Palm Leas is a very comfortable annex to The Leas. It is very well presented to a high standard and has all necessary facilities for a very comfy stay whatever the weather. The beds are very comfortable and it is in a quiet location at the end of a private road, so a good nights sleep is assured. It has exceptional views from the lounge patio doors over the Bristol Channel and there are palm trees in view in the garden. We received a welcoming call from the owner to ensure everything was satisfactory, which was very much appreciated. We were not familiar with this side of Ilfracombe but we found it to be very close to the local beach and a short 10 min walk to the harbour and the centre of town down a pleasant coast road. The road gives a good view of Damien Hirst's Statue Verity installed at the harbour mouth. Also close is the Hillsborough hill which gives very good views over Ilfracombe. Can certainly recommend this property."

"Perfect for large groups, well equipped with everything you need, comfortable, loads of space for everyone over the 4 levels, youngest at the top as the stairs are narrow but totally climbable and adventureous for kids, tv’s in all the rooms great for kids too and there is a bathroom and shower on the top floor so you don’t have to use the stairs in the night. We were two family groups including children and grandparents, and we never once felt crowded. The garden isn’t large but secure and big enough to bbq with a large outdoor seating area. You don’t need a large garden with all that beach on the doorstep anyway. Four walkable pubs of which a couple do takeaways and a hotel restaurant, Johns cafe and shop have everything you need. Welcoming from the start with the wine and scones, lots to do in the area or within short drives, a great place to stay and would recommend it totally."

Hugh - verified booking

"Beautiful location. Cottage had all we needed and the walled garden was just out of this world! So appreciated fresh vegetables on a daily basis. Staying early September, with no instructions on how to get the heaters in the property to work, the property was a little cold for my elderly parents. We did not seem to b3 able toget cold water out of the taps without running it for many minutes as I think the cold feed ran alongside the hot. This meant we had to put tap water in the fridge to get it to the required temperature.Lack of Internet was a real problem if you need to work and television reception was very poor.I would stay again tomorrow because the location was beautiful and a wonderful place to escape from the pressures of life in general. The vegetables in the walled garden were such an added bonus, any other problems in life just faded away!!"
