Description from manager

Lower Goosemoor Cottage is an idyllic hideaway for up to 4 guests in rural Exmoor National Park. Situated in a private valley at the end of a drive, you will not find a more peaceful and tranquil spot to unwind in!

Lower Goosemoor Cottage is a former pair of miner's cottages, that has surprisingly large and light rooms and has been modernised with flair and sensitivity. The cottage is warm and welcoming, and has been thoughtfully equipped throughout, in addition it's perfectly complemented by the enchanting grounds which surround it. This cottage and its location really do leave guests awestruck and provides a perfect place in which to relax and recharge the batteries. A real favourite for families and small groups looking to get away from it all.
