DESCRIPTION

Northmoor House is a Victorian country villa, on the edge of Exmoor National Park. The house has been sensitively restored with the period in mind, and retains original features such as the servant’s bells and the butler’s bath, still stowed in its cupboard. Northmoor issuitable for relaxed family parties, special celebrations, reunions of friends or family holidays.

The house sleeps up to twenty-eight guests in fourteen bedrooms, with seven bathrooms. Cots are available for children, and dogs are welcome. There is a bedroom on the ground floor, for those wishing to avoid stairs (a bathroom with disabled facilities is right next door). Should you need extra space for extra guests, there is also a self-contained lodge at the end of the drive, which sleeps a family of five.

The ground floor has plenty of space for everyone, and includes a morning room, drawing room and two sitting rooms. There is also a very fine dining room, and a billiard room.

There are two kitchens and all the back-of-house rooms from the Northmoor’s past, like the dairy, scullery and pantry – and the servants’ hall. A table tennis table lives in the room on the far north-east of the house, next to the wood shed (there are plenty of fireplaces at Northmoor!).

The lawns around the house drift seamlessly into the ancient Sessile Oak woodlands, and the River Barle is barely five minutes walk away – perfect for picnics or a summer dip-of-toes. Wild Red Deer are frequent visitors to the gardens and park.

Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature

“There’s a very special atmosphere at Northmoor, a sense of timelessness. I can’t think of anything nicer than cradling a late-night brandy on Northmoor’s terrace, watching the stars and chatting with friends.”

About The Location

Northmoor House is in West Somerset, on the edge of Exmoor, and can be reached from the M5. It is a mile and a half from the picturesque town of Dulverton (there’s a footpath there from the house). The coast and town of Minehead is about 30 minutes’ drive from the house.

Things To Do

There are many distractions in the local area, not least all of those offered by Exmoor: horse riding and pony-trekking, walking, orienteering and kayaking. Northmoor also offers a ¾ mile private double bank fishing on the Barle.

For any guests craving a cream tea, there are plenty of cafes and country pubs. For guests who simply don’t wish to cook, there are local caterers.

Northmoor offers additional activities on site, such as clay-pigeon shooting, CO2 pistol shooting and archery.

Please see Northmoor’s website for details of special offers.

Great house in a great location, didn't see any Red Deer unfotunately but a good walk to Tarr Steps on Saturday followed by a gentle stroll into Dulverton on Sunday. The house is just perfect for that weekend getaway.
