COURT LODGE, pet friendly, luxury holiday cottage in Wiveliscombe
Court Lodge is set on the edge of the small and quiet village of Bathealton in a conservation area. Set within its own garden of half an acre, it enjoys a particularly peaceful setting with panoramic views across open countryside.
This luxurious dwelling benefits from a stylish and contemporary, open-plan interior, two beautifully appointed bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, a spectacular garden with patio and seating, hot tub, lawn and far-reaching countryside views. The property, originally dating back to 1847 was completely refurbished in 2022 to a very high standard with a contemporary extension, underfloor heating and double glazing throughout.
Court Lodge is in an unbeatable location, easily accessible being 20 minutes from the motorway or local train stations. Easy access to the beautiful countryside and picturesque coast is perfect for families, friends or couples looking to explore Somerset or nearby Devon. There are extensive local walks on footpaths, by-ways or quiet roads ideal for those with canine companions keen to immerse themselves into the countryside.
After a day full of exploration, cross the threshold into your new home-from-home and locate the open-plan living space where a crackling wood burning stove lies at its heart; unwind on the plush sofa in front of it and flick on the Smart TV and good internet access while the designated chef of the group gets acquainted with the fully-equipped kitchen.
Delight in their culinary creations around the spacious dining table or step outside to the private patio to indulge in an alfresco affair while the breath-taking countryside provides a memorable backdrop.
After dinner, indulge in a soothing soak in the bubbling hot tub, the perfect place to relax and admire the stars as they begin to fill the sky overhead.
When the evening draws to a close, travel back inside to wash off the day’s adventures in one of the two sleek modern bathrooms ahead of catching up on your rest in the luxurious bedrooms.
If you can tear yourself away from this idyllic dwelling, venture into the nearby village of Wiveliscombe where you can stock up on all of your self-catering essentials or treat your loved ones to a break from the kitchen with a meal out at The Bear Inn or one of the other many local pubs.
Guests can also discover the beauty of Exmoor National Park with extensive walks, Exmoor ponies and wild beauty. The delightful village of Dulverton is a 25 minute drive and the gateway to Exmoor with pubs, restaurants and shopping. Visits to the beach are all within driving distance: the North Exmoor coast from Porlock to Lynmouth. Surfers can head off to Saunton Sands or Woolacombe, or for a different contrast drive to the south coast to visit Lyme Regis, Seaton, Beer or Exmouth.
Must-see attractions are woven throughout the surrounding countryside; find the fabulous wild gardens of Fyne Court, the impressive Knightshayes Court, the Tiverton Museum of Mid Devon Life, Wimbleball lake and the Museum of Somerset.
