Woolhanger Farmhouse is an ideal base for larger families and groups holidaying together. It is situated within the surroundings of Woolhanger Farm, nestling deep in the Exmoor National Park. It sleeps up to twelve people and has a substantial south facing garden, tennis court, hot tub and sauna. It is on part of the Woolhanger Estate, a large hill farm with some of the most spectacular views on Exmoor.
Woolhanger Farmhouse has a large kitchen and dining area with direct access out to the rear garden and patio area; a living room with a comfortable reclining suite and attractive feature fireplace and log burner; and six double bedrooms. A swim spa (large hot tub) and sauna have been recently added for the private use of guests staying in Woolhanger Farmhouse and are located in the pool house which is only a few steps away from the main house.
There are two fully fitted kitchens with large electric cooker, double oven, microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. There are separate utility rooms as well as separate washing machine, tumble dryer and sink. The farmhouse has electric heaters throughout.
There are five bedrooms, all with 6'6" long zip and link beds, which give maximum option on sleeping arrangements of super king or twin rooms - this must be requested when booking. There is also one further bedroom as part of the 'Locks Cottage' end of the farmhouse, with a large wood frame double bed as well as beautiful hardwood doors and iron fittings.
The farmhouse has a phone for local and incoming calls; O2 and EE mobile networks have good reception.
The village of Parracombe is 2.5 miles away with a Post Office and Store, and the Fox & Goose Pub, which serves quality tasty evening meals.
In the other direction, the iconic Exmoor coastal towns of Lynton & Lynmouth are 4.5 miles away from the cottage. Both have a wide array of restaurants, tearooms and pubs. There are also several General Stores, a large Post Office (in Lynton), as well as clothes and gift shops, and Tourist Information Centres.
Woolhanger Farmhouse makes a fantastic base for walks on Exmoor, with stunning views across the moor and beyond to the Bristol Channel.
Exmoor Ponies can easily be spotted around the farm on a regular basis. As well as the farm's own sheep and cattle, herds of Red Deer can frequently be seen grazing on the moor, and for the bird watchers there are Buzzards, Kites, Snipe and Woodcocks to be spotted.
