About Holmbush

Cottage rental includes

This large, spacious, early 1900’s detached house stands alone in 40 acres with outstanding views across the wooded valley of the River Barle and Exmoor National Park. Just half a mile from the delightful village of Withypool with its excellent pub, there are fantastic doorstep walks to the village, the high moorland and along the river. Riding here is unsurpassed and Holmbush offers DIY private stabling and grazing (to be arranged with the owner). This is an extremely roomy, no frills family holiday base with lovely views from most of the rooms and is a haven of peace and privacy in this glorious part of Exmoor. Words and pictures cannot do this exceptional location the justice it deserves.
