Luxury self-catering farmhouse with stables near Exmoor, Somerset


Hidden down a meandering track near Dulverton, the southern gateway to Exmoor National Park, this 18th Century hayloft has been lovingly restored into a luxury self-catering farmhouse, superb for family gatherings and grown-up country escapes. Those looking for an equestrian experience with a difference will be spoilt for choice, with plenty of bucolic bridleways and opportunities for galloping across Exmoor on horseback with the wind in your hair, leaving all your troubles far behind… 

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

When twilight falls over Caspian Ranch, hit the hay in one of the sumptuous bedrooms, each dressed in luxurious linens, cushy pillows and stylish sheepskin throws. The master en suite bedroom boasts a king-size bed, separate shower and deep bath tub; the perfect remedy for tired body soaks after blustery country rambles. Adjacent is one of the en suite zip-and-link twin bedrooms complete with walk-in rain shower, WC and shaggy rugs underfoot – ensuring cosiness from head to toe. On the opposite side of the horseshoe shaped barn sits a second twin bedroom and king-size bedroom with en suite shower room.


Set amid expanses of rolling hills and huge open skies, the east-facing balcony offers views to take your breath away. Spend mornings sipping on fresh steaming coffee and mapping out the day’s adventures on the balcony as you watch the sun rise over the horizon. Adrenaline addicts will not be far from a wide range of outdoor activities including mountain biking, rock climbing and abseiling down craggy rock faces. For those who prefer indoor comforts, nearby Dulverton delivers a relaxed country-town vibe with a variety of independent shops and award-winning eateries to discover. 

For Relaxation

After a day exploring the heather-clad moorland and wild valleys to the west, hang your hat before retiring beside the crackling wood burner, where the flickering flames and underfloor heating will make you feel right at home. Pour a large glass of something warming and unwind in the stylish realms of the open plan kitchen-dining area as dusk begins to settle outside. After-dark escapades don’t get much more romantic than up on Exmoor National Park; the only place in England to be awarded a special protected status for its night sky. Drive up during a meteor shower with blankets and a flask of hot chocolate, and expect to see up to sixty shooting stars an hour!


There is parking for two cars in the opposite barn plus further room on the driveway for additional cars. The property is well-equipped with an electric double oven, Dolche Gusto coffee machine, microwave, washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher. The property owners live opposite.

Beach Lovers Woolacombe Beach is only an hour’s drive away; a haven for beach bunnies and surfers of all abilities. Visit on a sunny day and you’ll soon see why this three-mile long stretch of golden sand has won both the blue flag and Premier Seaside Beach awards, as well as being hailed Britain’s Best Beach by Coast magazine in 2012, and more recently by Trip Advisor in 2015.

Night Time Delight Exmoor National Park’s night sky is the first place in England and only the second in the world which has been awarded special protected status. The remarkable lack of light pollution produces exceptional conditions for stargazing. Take the car up during a meteor shower and expect to see around 50-60 shooting stars an hour (don’t forget blankets and a flask of hot chocolate)!

Active Relaxation Families who prefer to gallop on horses, swing from tree tops and roll in mud puddles as opposed to playing charades by the fire will be in their element here. From paintballing in Stoke Woods to zip-lining at Go Ape and pony trekking through the beautiful moorland, there really is something for everyone.

Castles and Mansions Stately home fans will enjoy a trip to Dunster Castle; a Victorian country house dramatically positioned on a wooded hill, with lavish interiors including a stunning 17th century carved staircase. A little closer to home, Knightshayes Court is a stunning Gothic Mansion from the same era. Explore one of the few surviving works from architect William Burges; a rich fusion of medieval romanticism and lavish decoration.

Exmoor This National Park is a truly captivating landscape that contains an amazing variety of terrains within 267 square miles of moorland, woodland, valleys and farmland, sculpted by both nature and local inhabitants over thousands of years.

Oh I Do Like to Be Beside the Seaside! Take a breath-taking drive across the top of Exmoor to discover a host of unspoilt Victorian seaside gems nestled at the foot of the imposing cliffs of the North Devon Coast. Lynmouth is connected to Lynton via a cliff railway and sits at the foot of the picturesque Watersmeet gorge. These pretty coastal twin towns are a painter’s dream and a honey pot for visitors. 



The open plan kitchen area allows budding chefs to be kept company whilst preparing a culinary feast for all. The outside dining area to the east of the barn is just as perfect for western-style cook–offs over hot coals as it is for candlelit dinners beneath the starlit sky. Foodies will be pleased with the variety of farm shops near by, Farthings comes highly recommended for great local produce and friendly staff.

In-House Cuisine

If you'd rather spend your self-catering break indulging in the little luxuries, let Croft & Cottage prepare delicious, homemade dishes conveniently delivered to your door (on prior request and subject to an additional cost).

Eating Out
