Beautiful grounds and lakes. River fly fishing.
The cottage has been recently modernised and refurbished throughout to 4 star equivalent. It is open-plan, light and airy and comprises a sitting area with living-flame gas stove and Sky TV (with Entertainment Extra channels); a dining area with electric wall radiator; and a modern fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, fridge, freezer and all you need. Opening off from the living area is the bedroom (king size bed), with electric radiator, and the en-suite shower room has a hidden-away washing machine. The cottage style apartment adjoins Oakmead House, with access to all the grounds, but is totally self-contained with its own access and garden area. Electricity, heating and linens all included. One well behaved dog is welcome. Free internet access is available.
The lakes and ponds which give the grounds their unique character are fed by a 100 year old leat fed by the waters of the river Bray which cascades down from Exmoor. Combined with the areas of woodland, lawns and gardens, the result is a peaceful and beautiful haven which is yours to explore and enjoy. Early planting of the parkland has matured, blending seamlessly with the surrounding wildlife habitat to provide the perfect environment for your stay. Whatever your holiday requirements – walking, riding or fishing, reading or writing, or simply enjoying being away from it all, Acorn Retreat and its lovely environment has it all and will tempt you back again, year after year. Please see our website www.oakmeadhouse.co.uk for more pictures and details. We are open through all seasons including Christmas and New Year.

Super holiday cottage for Exmoor and coast. Very peaceful.Furnished to high standard with lots of thought gone into providing everything possible you are likely to need with a few little extras on the side. Had a wonderful stay and was made very welcome by Sally and Jon. Beautiful grounds to walk dog -lots of rabbits to chase.Sandra, 26.09.2013
Having stayed in cottages for many years acorn retreat is by far the best we have stayed at. The apartment and grounds are second to none and Sally and Jon make you so welcome I would recommend it to anybody for a relaxing holiday and rate it 11 out of 10.Derek, 20.09.2013
This is without a doubt the best holiday cottage that we have stayed in! Superbly equipped and maintained by very welcoming owners. Grounds were excellent and we saw deer and even glimpsed an otter one evening. It was a great base for exploring North Devon and Exmoor with our dog.Derek, 16.06.2013
