Dulverton, the gateway to southern Exmoor, is a most attractive town tucked alongside the beautiful River Barle and it maintains a strong identity of its own through the highly individual shops. Not far from the centre, this charming semi-detached cottage can be found, overlooking the river and perched above the road that winds up through ancient oak woods to the high moorland. 2 Highcroft has large windows, most of which have views across the valley through the trees, is stylishly comfortable and a delightful spot from which to explore this beautiful area. Come here to soak up the scenery, from the steep sided valleys clothed in dense oakwood, heather covered moorland and clear flowing rivers to the remarkable coastline where plunging cliffs and woods meet the sea. Exmoor offers uninterrupted natural beauty on a grand scale, so the walking and riding is unsurpassed.
