Green Knowe Cottage holiday home details

Green Knowe Cottage is a delightful, spacious cottage located on an old farm on the edge of the stunning Exmoor National Park. Enjoy beautiful valley views from both the cottage and its private patio across the 33 acres of land.Make sure to keep an eye out for 'B' and 'Autumn', the owners' two friendly horses who live in the working stable block next to the cottage. Treat yourself to breakfast with a view from the conservatory dining room or enjoy the wood burning stove in the double height, vaulted sitting room. Don't forget to drop into The Masons Arms, a Michelin star pub a mile down the road for a pint or a bit to eat (booking essential).

Situated on the southern edge of Exmoor National Park, there are many wonderful days out to be enjoyed from the cottage. Enjoy breath-taking walks or drives across the moors and through wooded valleys while nearby Dulverton offers a wonderful Exmoor village welcome with an array of local farm shops and goods. Explore nearby Knightshayes Court; a stylish Victorian mansion with glorious gardens. Alternatively visit bustling Barnstaple which is only a 25 minute drive away and explore the stunning expanse of Saunton Sands. A lovely 55 minute drive through the National Park takes you to the beautiful medieval village of Dunster, nestled below Dunster Castle – a National Trust property and a great day out.

Seekings Cottage sleeping two guests is also available to book at this location.

Attractions and nearby amenities

  • The village of Dunster with its shops and restaurants is well worth visiting, as is the National Trusts’ Dunster Castle with its subtropical gardens which has four different micro-climates is home to a diverse range of plants and wildlife. While you are at the castle, drop in and see the restored working watermill located in the castle’s River Gardens.
  • Another National Trust property, Knighthayes Court built in the Victoria era for the Heathcoat-Amory family, should also be on your To Do List where you can learn about its intricate stone carvings on the staircases and many of its ceilings.
  • The Michelin starred Masons Arms in Knowstone is highly recommended with advance booking advised if you wish to partake in the delicious food.
  • We recommend The Bridge Inn in Dulverton for great food (booking essential). It's also very dog-friendly and only 20 minutes drive away. The Ginger Peanut and The Swan, both in nearby Bampton, also serve wonderful food (booking essential).
  • Drive deeper into the Devon countryside to reach Exmoor National Park or head to Saunton Sands on the North Devon coast for a bracing walk along the beach. While in the National Park, make sure your walk includes the Tarr Steps, a unique stone clapper bridge across the river Barle or pop into Withypool where you can enjoy a well-earned cup of tea and a piece of cake in the lovely tea rooms.
  • Make a day of it and take a trip to Westward Ho! (the only town in the UK with an exclamation mark in it's name) Alternatively visit lovely Clovelly where you can wander down steep, cobbled paths to the secluded harbour for a well earned pint.
