Yenworthy Cottage is part of Yenworthy Farm. Happy to welcome 3 dogs. Countisbury is set in a spectacular location on the northern slopes of Exmoor National Park, a few hundred yards from the coast and with views of the Bristol Channel. This property is situated on a working farm therefore you must ensure your dog is kept under your control at all times, as there is likely to be livestock nearby.
The Farm is situated in ‘Doone Country’, and actually appears in the novel itself. The gun which was supposedly used to repel the ‘Doones’ still hangs in the farmhouse to this day. This working farm once had its own mill and the old water wheel can still be seen. The Cottage was built in 1628 and extended in 1840. It was refurbished and re-furnished in 2016 to offer a high standard of accommodation.Sleeps up to 6 guests (plus cot) Three bedrooms; one double bedroom and two twin bedrooms Spectacular location on the northern slopes of Exmoor National Park and near the coast Direct access to one of the most scenic sections of the South West Coast Path Enclosed garden to the front and side of the property with outside seating.

Yenworthy Cottage is ideal for walkers or those with a dog - a rugged pathway leads from the farm down to a secluded rocky beach and there is direct access to one of the most scenic sections of the South West Coast Path which runs through the farm. Perfect for early morning dog walks. There are 13 miles of footpaths to explore on the farm itself and it even has its own historic monument - an old Roman Fort at Old Burrow.
