Luxury holiday cottage on Exmoor with gardens and superb views
In the heart of Lorna Doone Country, The Hayloft, Oare offers a tranquil retreat surrounded by stunning scenery. It has a king-size bedroom and a double bedroom, both with ensuite bathroom making it ideal for two couples holidaying together. Leave coats and boots in the entrance utility room and relax in the welcoming sitting room. It has two leather sofas with ample cushions for putting your feet up in front of the logburner. The country-style kitchen has granite worktops, cream cabinets and every appliance you could wish for. It has a breakfast table but you’ll probably dine in the lovely garden with rural and sea views.
After a day exploring the footpaths and villages on Exmoor, stretch out and relax with a glass of your favourite drink in the garden. There’s a table and chairs for al fresco dining too.
