Royal Oak Cottage, Withypool is a very well appointed four bedroomed property for up to 7 guests. Quintessentially English, it has plenty of space yet is cosy and welcoming, with features nodding to the historic origins but with all mod cons. Situated on a quiet lane, the peace and quiet is abundant
Royal Oak Cottage has 4 bedrooms; 2 king sized beds (5'), 1 standard double (4'6) and 1 single bedroom. There are two bathrooms upstairs, one is a large en-suite, both with bath, shower and bidet. There is also a small cloakrooms room downstairs, comprising toilet and hand basin. The kitchen is a good size and open to the dining room, with a table that easily seats 7-8 people. In the lounge you will find 3 sofas (2 x 3-seaters and 1 x 2-seater). There is also a games area for you to play a variety of games, including cards or scrabble or even a jigsaw puzzle or two! The lounge is where you will find the TV (with freeview) and large fire place with a log burner. There is a good selection of books to read, which you are welcome to indulge in during your stay.
This cottage is quite spacious (compared to traditional Exmoor cottages) and so if you have family members that prefer a quiet corner to read or perhaps a snooze, there are plenty of places to take yourself off to!
The kitchen is well equipped with a large electric Aga, combination oven (microwave/conventional oven), Nespresso coffee machine, kettle, toaster, fridge-freezer and dishwasher. A small supply of coffee (instant and a few Nespresso capsules), tea, decaf tea, milk and sugar will be provided to get your through your first day or two.
There is a good sized entrance hall to hang your coats, keys and shoes and right next to this the laundry room, where you will find the washing machine, a clothes airer and an iron and ironing board should you need it.
Electricity and heating costs are included in the price of your accommodation. Central heating is fitted throughout the property and can be adjusted to suit your preferences and the seasons. There is a large fireplace with wood-burner in the living room; a starter basket of logs and fire lighters will be provided for the wood-burner in the cooler months. More logs can be purchased ahead of your stay if required.
Bed linen, duvets, pillows and towels are provided for your convenience, but please bring your own beach towels if you wish to take towels with you on day trips.
Wi-Fi is included. Please note, there is limited mobile signal in Withypool village and so Wi-Fi calling is the best means of making a call.

A beautiful property, equipped to a VERY high standard, in fact one of the best properties we have ever stayed in. Richard and Emma were really friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful stay, and will definitely be returning. Eating out recommend Tarr Farm Inn, also the Royal Oak at Winsford (need to book at both as they are popular. Our Granddaughters loved the activities at Wimball Lake, and the museum at Tiverton is well worth a visit - they even had dressing up clothes for the girls to amuse themselves (and us) with.
Lovely place to stay. Nice quiet village with useful shop, cafe and pub close by. House is great - well looked after and clean. Very good host.
We had a great family holiday in Emma’s beautiful home. It was clean and well equipped, perfect for our stay, and Emma was very responsive and helpful throughout.
