Grade II listed cottage with woodburner, pretty garden and fine views
Old Church House, Brayford is a three bedroom whitewashed cottage in High Bray dating back to the 16th century. Oak beams, stone fireplaces and multi-paned windows in this Grade II listed property blend with the well-equipped oak kitchen. The spacious living room is warmed by a woodburner (and central heating in winter). It’s perfect for curling up with one of the books from the library or enjoying views of the garden and churchyard nearby. The galleried landing leads to three bedrooms (a double, twin and a single) and a family bathroom with shower over bath.
Mix a jug of summer punch or pop a chilled bottle of bubbly and relax in the pretty cottage garden. It’s an idyllic spot for listening to the sound of silence.
Surrounded by countryside, the Old Church House, Brayford is a hiker’s paradise in a scenic area of Exmoor. Explore moorland, villages and the coastal path on foot, bicycle, horseback or by car. Enjoy a delicious Sunday Lunch at the traditional Black Venus Inn in Challacombe and return for weekday specials.
