Welcome to Little Folly, a delightful cottage in the heart of Exmoor’s national park. Refurbished in late 2021, Little Folly provides the perfect escape for two couples or a family looking to get away from it all and head back to nature for a while. On the ground floor you have an open plan lounge/diner/kitchen area with a stunning bay window enjoying amazing views over the garden to the hills beyond. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to prepare a meal that you can enjoy at the table, while the lounge area has comfortable seating to relax after a day on the moors. The ground floor bedroom has a double bed and views over the garden. Head up four steps to the fabulous bathroom which has a P-shaped bath with shower over and heated towel rail. On this level you will also find the main bedroom featuring a super kingsize zip and link bed (which can be made into two singles on request).

Outside you have plenty of parking, and your garden is the perfect place to relax and let your family unwind, and from the doorstep there are miles of walks over the moor. Just a mile down the hill is the village of Winsford with its local pub, or hop in the car and explore the myriad of quaint rural villages dotted around, with tea rooms and country inns that have some of the best views! The beaches of Minehead, Dunster and Blue Anchor are within easy reach and always make for a fun day out. Jump on the West Somerset Steam Railway and chug merrily through the beautiful Somerset countryside. Dulverton is just a 10 minute drive with its shops and supermarket.

The owners have received an Exmoor National Park Dark Sky Friendly business award. This is very exciting as Astro tourism is a growing component of the tourist industry. Our towns and cities create so much light pollution that most people in the UK cannot appreciate the moon, let alone the stars and planets. Exmoor, along with other remote areas of the UK run events to promote the night sky. The garden is ideal for viewing the night sky and there are two sets of Astro binoculars for guests to enjoy the starry sky. Blankets, baked potatoes and a hot drink can also be provided on request.

An beautiful holiday home in the heart of Exmoor surrounded by open views of the countryside. The accommodation is laid out to give a feeling of ample space for 4 adults or a family of 4. There is everything you need for your stay with lovely personal touches to welcome you from your wonderfully hospitable hosts Frances and Mike. The garden space is ideal for sitting and relaxing with your morning coffee or evening tipple, and to bring your dog with moorland walks right on your doorstep. On a clear night the stargazing is spectacular. We had an amazing holiday at Little Folly and would not hesitate to recommend it as a special place to stay for your holiday to the West Country.

We loved little folly and the hosts were so helpful and accommodating. Although there was only two of us, we were staying for a week, we found the tiny fridge frustratingly difficult to manage. There was no no washing machine which is always useful to have when on a walking and riding holiday, especially with the changing weather conditions at times. The beds and linen were of excellent quality and everything very clean and tidy. Nice touches of fresh natural flowers and a lovely cake on arrival! Overall we would definitely return but probably only for a long weekend given the limited facilities.
