Challacombe, Exmoor, BARNSTAPLE, North Devon, EX31 4TS

COTTAGES FOR CANINES – Our cottages are ideal for dogs and their families: each cottage has a private enclosed garden; they are surrounded by large grounds; there are excellent walks on the surrounding moors, and a dog-friendly pub within 300 yards.

The characterful stone-built cottages surround a pretty courtyard in the peaceful village of Challacombe, within the Exmoor National Park. Each has its own private enclosed patio/garden and there are three acres of charming grounds, including a lovely walk up and around Humphrey's Hill where dogs can usually run off-lead. The cottages have character features (i.e. beamed ceilings, stone inglenook fireplaces) and a real fire in the living room. Within 300 yards is a shop and post office and a dog-friendly Inn, the Black Venus, which serves award-winning food and real ales.

We take pride in our cottages, and our visitors often comment on how clean and well-maintained they are and the good quality of the furnishings and finishes.

Challacombe has excellent walks in every direction and is an ideal central location from which to explore Exmoor and the spectacular north Devon coast.  Within 25 minutes drive are the wide sandy beaches of Woolacombe and Croyde, the spectacular coastline around Lynton, Lynmouth and Porlock, and most of the Exmoor National Park.
