Unique pink thatched cottage situated in one of Exmoor’s prettiest villages, boasting large living areas and an enclosed garden.

Royal Oak Farm is a detached, thatched holiday cottage full of character, situated in the heart of Winsford, one of Exmoor’s prettiest villages. Some of the original parts of the cottage date back to the 14th century. There is generous living space and a large enclosed garden to enjoy. Winsford is located in the heart of Exmoor National Park. There is an inviting pub next to the cottage and a local shop within walking distance. The cottage is surrounded by the majesty of Exmoor and there is easy access to some spectacular country walks on the moorland with an extensive network of well marked footpaths. Dulverton is located 6 miles away and has a wider range of shops, restaurants and tea rooms. A visit to Tarr Steps and Dunkery Beacon (highest point on Exmoor) are some of the highlights. Wimball Lake is a short drive away where you can enjoy the wildlife that surrounds the lake, or enjoy sailing, canoeing or angling on the lake. Other local attractions that may be of interest are the village and castle at Dunster, the West Somerset Railway at Minehead and the villages of Porlock Weir, Lynton and Lynmouth. There are beaches at Dunster and Blue Anchor. Shop

    Lovely spacious cottage in peaceful setting. Like stepping back in time. No real amenities in the village but not too far from larger towns. Beautiful countryside and walking nearby, nature on your doorstep. Plenty to do without having to drive too far. The only criticism is that without mobile service in the village the WiFi in the cottage didn’t reach to the other end of the house which made communication difficult at times.

    We chose the venue based on the number of rooms we needed, not easy to find, and the convenience of a pub/restaurant next door. A shame we weren't encouraged when we booked the cottage to book early for the restaurant where the man in charge seemed to take great delight in telling us how we should have booked well in advance as he had no spaces for the next three days, nor was there really anywhere to stand and drink (we are retired men, not yobs), despite assuring us it was a pub. We had one drink and left. The accommodation was perfect for us and we luckily found a great mini-bus taxi driver based in Minehead to covey the seven of us around. Our friendly taxi driver could give Customer Service lessons to the man running the pub/restaurant who also seemed to delight in telling us we wouldn't get a taxi easily!

    An ideal house for a family gathering which is what we had, everything you need is available and meets your needs. Hirers should be aware this is an old property with all the quaintness and idiosyncrasies of a property of its age; the floorboards squeak, its comfortable rather than contemporary, etc. but for a lovely relaxing time in a beautiful village with the joys of Exmoor on your doorstep its ideal. We enjoyed it and had a great time.

    This has been by far my favourite holiday to date. The cottage is just beautiful. The location is wonderful and we had the very best of weeks staying there. We feel very privileged to have stayed here and cannot wait to come back. The house is spacious so the 8 of us that stayed were never on top of one another. There were 2 lounges so the children had their own room to play in. The showers were fantastic better than many hotels and with 3 bathrooms there was never a queue. Fantastic Central heating which took minutes to warm the house and a beautiful real fire in one of the lounges had a wonderful log burner. The village itself is stunning, I felt like I was in a Miss Marple book. The pub serves great food. We would not hesitate to recommend our friends to stay here.
