About this property
Nestled in the pretty Exmoor village of Winsford, Karslake House is a terraced cottage close to the owners home. Up past the ford and thatched pub, it makes an ideal base for those looking to enjoy a week of walking in the Exmoor National Park. Explore the varied, stunning landscape that this beautiful part of the country has to offer, or for those wanting to relax, enjoy the bliss and slower pace of rural village life. Internally, the house is very well-appointed with all the bedrooms having either en-suite facilities or a shower in the room. There is a charming living room with a woodburner and a good sized, well-equipped kitchen. There is also a lovely landscaped patio for guests to use.
A local shop and pub serving food are within easy walking distance, as well as a popular tea room. The property sits within the boundaries of Exmoor National Park, which offers great walking for all abilities, a wide range of wildlife including deer and the famous Exmoor ponies, and some superb places to visit including Withypool, Lanacre and Tarr Steps. The Exmoor town of Dulverton is worth a visit and has a good range of shops and restaurants. Looking towards the coast, there is the medieval town of Dunster with its castle (NT), and then on to Minehead, which also has a larger range of shops and amenities, as well as the West Somerset Railway and beach area. Other areas of interest close by are Porlock and Porlock Weir, and a little further along the coast are Lynton and Lynmouth, the two towns being connected by the Victorian cliff railway. Spend a day on the beach at Dunster or Blue Anchor. Shop and pub 100 yards.
