Red deer, owls and star-filled skies at this Exmoor retreat

Nutsford House is a peaceful B&B with two guest bedrooms on the southern edge of Exmoor. The property has been lovingly restored to enhance its period charm with 21st century comforts, all cushioned by ten private landscaped acres of woodland and gardens.

The two guest bedrooms are both south-facing, with views over the gardens and the Brockey Valley. The Siskin Room can be configured with either twin single beds or a super-king double and has a private bathroom with thermostatic shower, while the Chapman Room is a double where the private bathroom has a bath as well. Bathrobes are provided, along with complementary toiletries, and tea and coffee-making facilities. The rooms don’t have televisions but few guests seem to mind, and there is fast wifi throughout.

Downstairs guests are free to use the dining room as well as the library, warmed in cooler months by a log-burning stove. Breakfast can be either a Nutsford House full English with variations for vegetarian or vegan options, or a choice of lighter dishes. All tastes are catered for, and ingredients are either home-grown or locally sourced. Eggs are courtesy of Nutsford House’s own rescue chickens, the toast and porridge is made on the Aga and the coffee is bottomless.

The grounds at Nutsford House are very much part of its appeal. Covering ten acres of landscaped gardens and unspoilt woodlands, they’re a haven for wildlife, a paradise of babbling streams and flitting birds. The gardens have a number of specimen trees, while the woodland is transformed by swathes of snowdrops in spring, orchids in summer and fungi in autumn. Best of all it’s totally private: you’re more likely to see a red deer or a great spotted woodpecker than another person, and you can drift off to sleep serenaded by owls.

Nutsford House B&B suggests:

While it really feels Nutsford House is in the middle of nowhere, it’s a short walk across the fields (or an even shorter drive) to Dulverton, the southern Gateway to Exmoor, where you’ll find shops, restaurants, pubs and the National Park Centre. Whether you’re a walker, a fisherman or a cyclist, you have the rest of Exmoor National Park literally on your doorstep.

Nutsford House is only a short walk across fields (or a five-minute drive) from Dulverton, Exmoor's southern gateway, with a range of shops, restaurants and activities on offer - not to mention the National Park Centre. The nearest gastro restaurant is five minutes away, Michelin guide listed restaurant ten, and a Michelin Starred option in twenty-five. It's paradise for walkers. Exmoor National Park has 1000km of footpaths, and Nutsford House is only 15 minutes from the famous Tarr Steps, a great walking area. The Two Moors Way linking Dartmoor and Exmoor passes close by, and the Coleridge Way and the Exe Valley Way are also within easy reach. Nutsford house is on Cycle Route 3 (Bristol to Plymouth) and there's locked storage for bikes. You're five minutes away from the Exmoor distillery and there's a local vineyard, but for many guests the highlight of their stay are the flora and fauna of Nutsford House's ten acre grounds, at night lit by countless stars: rural peace in your own private haven.


"Absolutely marvellous. The room was spotless, the bed comfortable, nice view across the garden and the valley beyond, the owners are lovely and Louis the dog is adorable. A quiet location with lots of wild life, especially birds. There's a small conservatory with a bird feeder outside which is very popular with members of the Paridae family. Also spotted a Pied Woodpecker and a Nuthatch. Highly recommended and excellent value for money." Ian, Brittany 2022
