Knapp House Cottages

A group of four wonderful holiday apartments set within two wings of Knapp House, close to the village of East Anstey and just four miles from Dulverton, the gateway to Exmoor. These properties each have their own unique style which reflects the history of the house. Guests are encouraged to enjoy the large mature gardens including the kitchen garden which is slowly being reclaimed. There are plenty of places to relax including a large cedar summer house which enjoys lovely views across the gardens and beyond. Knapp House is a beautiful example of a country house designed in the Arts and Crafts style and built in the early 1900s as a hunting lodge. Knapp House also offers local organic veg and salad boxes, as well as breakfast boxes to order. Once a month there is a pop-up pub in the house, an opportunity for guests to meet the locals and have something to eat and drink. The setting is tranquil and private and is the perfect retreat from which to explore the best of Exmoor, such as long sandy beaches at Woolacombe and Saunton, spectacular moorland scenery, breathtaking walks through the Barle Valley or any number of National Trust properties or historic sites such as Dunster Castle. There’s also numerous excellent pubs and restaurants a short distance away. Exmoor is extremely dog friendly and for the more active there are multiple activities, including riding, shooting, canoeing, wild swimming, surfing and mountain biking.

Dulverton 4 miles; Tiverton 13 miles.

Devon, with its quiet country lanes, patchwork of lush green fields and sleepy villages is not to be missed. Stately home lovers will be spoiled and why not finish with a scrumptious Devonshire cream tea?

East Anstey is a village set in stunning countryside. Just four miles away is the market town of Dulverton. Within the town is the River Barle, which flows under a Grade I listed, 3000 year old clapper bridge. Also on offer in the town are medieval streets, restaurants, pubs, gift shops and tea rooms.
