Overview

About the property

No. 2 Warmore Cottages is a wonderful, dog friendly, newly refurbished Devon cottage right on the very edge of the Exmoor National Park with a national cycle route literally passing by the front door! In a small hamlet of just five houses, this spacious semi-detached cottage sits on the side of a river valley with stunning rural views and gardens to both the front and rear. There is off-street, private parking for 3 small or 2 medium to large cars to the front of the cottage. Dulverton "The Gateway to Exmoor" is less that 3 miles away and offers an outstanding selection of independent shops and superb pubs/eateries which is so rare to find these days.

The cottage is beautifully presented and filled with a wonderful mix of new, antique and restored furniture and decorative accessories. There is a lovely lounge-diner with a log burner, very large dining table and huge, super-comfy, squidgy sofas festooned with beautiful cosy cushions and throws to snuggle up with. Add a 40" HD TV (with Humax box providing access to various "FreeSat" channels), DVD player and Denon music system to provide everything needed for a cosy night in.

The cottage has three beautiful, individually styled bedrooms, each with a king-size bed (the third bedroom has "zip-link" beds, allowing for either a king-size or two small single beds format). All have coordinated black-out lined blinds & wonderful little touches to make them feel very special & elegant whilst remaining homely and welcoming. All three bedrooms have luxury, 1500 pocket sprung mattresses with memory foam tops for a wonderfully comfy night's sleep. We use beautiful, high thread-count Egyptian cotton bedding, quality feather and down duvets and fabulous pillows (one feather and down, one luxury hollow fibre per person to allow you to mix and match to get just the right feel). The duvets are "all season" so are made up from two separate duvets, one spring/autumn 9 tog and one summer 4 tog which can be buttoned together to provide a 13 tog winter duvet. We make up the beds with the most appropriate duvet for the season, however, any unused elements are stored at the cottage so you can change the level of warmth to suit your personal preference if needed. There are also huge, super-fluffy bath sheets, cotton waffle bathrobes, ample wooden hangers and a quality hairdryer in every room. Much more luxury boutique hotel than your average holiday cottage!

There are 2 clean and bright bathrooms upstairs (one en suite to the master bedroom), both with a shower over the bath plus a separate, downstairs WC. We provide complimentary herbal bath-soak and bubble bath to help soak away any aches and pains after a long day of exploring the area. There is also complimentary cotton wool and cotton buds for you to use plus a small selection of toiletries to purchase if you have forgotten to pack anything essential (via honesty box).

The kitchen is compact but incredibly well equipped. There is a fridge, built in electric cooker and halogen hob plus a microwave-convection oven. A large dishwasher ensures that you will not spend your holiday doing the dishes whilst inside the cupboards you will find a huge array of pots, pans, casseroles, oven dishes, bakeware and some beautiful serveware to ensure your table looks stunning! There is a slow cooker so you can come home to a wonderful hot meal ready for you and a hand-blender/food processor to take some of the effort out of food prep. We even provide some oils, balsamic vinegar and a huge selection of herbs and spices so you don't need to buy a whole pack when you only need a pinch! There's enough tea, coffee and sugar provided to get you started. You'll even find a separate wine fridge in the study to ensure all your drinks are kept at just the right temperature so you can enjoy them to the full. There's a lovely selection of cookbooks should you find yourself in need of a little inspiration.

The utility room is home to a washing machine, tumble dryer, steam iron, ironing board and a counter-top freezer. Fancy making up a picnic to make the most of the wonderful area? We also provide luxury wicker picnic hampers (one 4 person, one 2 person) and 2 picnic rugs to help give your alfresco dining an air of refinement!

Although very much a cottage, it has a very spacious feel with a large entrance hall with lots of room for walking boots, wellies and outdoor coats. There are even umbrellas to borrow should bad weather take you by surprise!

Well- behaved doggy guests are very welcome and very well catered for! We are great animal lovers ourselves and know only too well that many, especially those coming to a wonderful area famous for walking, want to bring the whole family with that means doggy comes too! All too often, it is only the less well presented and equipped holiday cottages that allow guests to bring dogs. We wanted to provide a holiday cottage which is luxurious for both human and canine guests with neither having to compromise. We allow up to 2, well-behaved dogs though we may be able to extend this number for smaller breeds, please contact us if you wish to discuss this. No.2 Warmore Cottages has a wonderful, large utility room which is set up as a luxury pad for your dog(s). It can be accessed directly from outside, allowing you to bring your muddy dog straight into the tile-floored area. There is even a utility room "en suite shower" exclusively for dogs and of course, an absorbent bath mat and a towel of a suitable size for their breed is also provided. The utility room has a squidgy doggy sofa which has a fresh fleecy throw over it for each new guest. We can also provide a large cage with wipeable, padded mattress if needed.

The cottage also has a small study/reading room with a large selection of books, games, DVDs and CDs to borrow during your stay. As you would hope in this day and age, there is also free Wi-Fi.

There is a small private, enclosed and gated garden to both the front and rear of the cottage, allowing you to appreciate all angles of the fabulous views on offer. The rear garden has a paved patio area on a level with the utility room and kitchen with gated steps to a raised, grassed area above. There is a lovely wooden dining set with cushions and a parasol (seating six) on the rear patio area plus a beautiful two-seater "bistro set" to the front, making a lovely spot to enjoy the morning sun with a cup of coffee. There is also a kettle style BBQ and utensils for you to use.

We live in Dulverton ourselves so, if you need any help making your stay extra special, please do contact us, we will always help with any plans if we can!

About Elaine Farman

We are Elaine and Peter Farman and our desire in setting up No. 2 Warmore Cottages was to provide a cottage we would love to stay in ourselves and offer our guests a beautiful place to stay where neither people nor dogs need to compromise on their needs or desires. We have set out to offer a fabulous cottage with lots of little extras not normally seen in a holiday home to ensure everyone has a wonderful stay with us. We live in Dulverton ourselves so know just how fabulous the area is. It also allows Elaine to manage the cottage personally, ensuring everything is just how we want it!

Elaine Farman purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Elaine Farman chose Dulverton

The cottage is so lovely, we purchased it in the autumn of 2015 and spent the rest of the year renovating it and filling it with beautiful things! The setting is stunning, each bedroom has beautiful views of the rolling countryside and it is a haven of peace, being set in a small hamlet of just 5 houses. Despite it's rural nature, it is less than 3 miles from Dulverton which has a truly exceptional choice of independent shops, pubs and eateries, there is even a Michelin Starred restaurant about 10 miles away (The Masons Arms). Although the postal town is Dulverton, the cottage itself sits just inside the Devon border, right on the very edge of Exmoor National Park with everything it has to offer. We are also very close to Winbleball Lake where there is a large range of water sports on offer. We only moved to Dulverton ourselves in 2014 and already feel completely at home in this truly outstanding and very friendly part of the country. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Fantastic cottage !

  • 5 of 5

The cottage did not disappoint, it is a wonderful cottage in a beautiful location. It contains everything you could possibly need for the perfect self catering holiday. Each room is tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean, which makes for a very relaxing stay.

The surrounding area is also stunning with beautiful walks on your door step. We would also recommend many drives over Exmoor, but in particular the views between from Porlock to Lynton are spectacular.

Shopping in nearby Dulverton was excellent and a very enjoyable experience. We also enjoyed a fantastic meal at the nearby Masons Arms (although booked well in advance), the set menu with paired wine was a great dining experience.

The host Elaine was very thoughtful and responsive to all our of our requests. We most definitely recommend this wonderful cottage !

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay at our cottage. I'm delighted that you loved the cottage so much and found it so clean, comfortable, well equipped and beautifully located. We are indeed very lucky to have a cottage in such an amazing part of the country! The drives (and indeed walks) up on Exmoor are stunning and I know the route between Porlock and Lynton/Lynmouth very well - stunning! I'm so glad that you enjoyed the Mason's Arms so much, we are very lucky to have such a wonderful Michelin starred restaurant so close by. I'm sure that Mark and Sarah looked after you very well, as they always do. It was a pleasure to have you stay at our cottage and I do hope we can welcome you back to Dulverton in the future.

A Perfect Cottage in a Perfect Location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week staying at this truly wonderful cottage. From the moment we walked in the door, we were blown away by the attention to detail of the owners. They have thought of everything you could possibly want from a holiday cottage and so, so much more! The cottage is spacious, beautifully furnished and incredibly comfortable and the beds....well, the best sleep we have ever had with amazing mattresses, cosy feather duvets, a choice of pillows and beautiful white linen - we really were in heaven. A winter stay at this cottage has a real charm. It is cosy, warm and delightful to cuddle up in front of the log burner. Our dog had a super time with long walks all around the cottage and a secure garden for him too. Thanks to the wet weather, we made good use of the "doggy shower" and were very grateful for the towels which were even provided for our hound (though we suspect he was rather more interested in the homemade treats he was left than the shower!). We ate out a few days (The Bridge Inn and Woods Wine Pub deserve a mention, they were both lovely) but also made very good use of the kitchen at the cottage which was the best equipped we have ever seen in a rental property. Everything was immaculate, the only time we have ever stayed somewhere and not needed to wash anything before using it! We really cannot recommend this cottage enough, from the moment we made contact with Elaine to the speedy return of the deposit, it was all perfect - we will be back!

Wonderful dog friendly cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this very stylish dog friendly cottage. The owners have gone to great lengths to insure you have a first class stay. The cottage is beautifully done with good quality furnishings, super comfortable beds and luxury bedding and towels. Even four legged friends are catered for with their own room, shower, towels etc. It was the little touches that made it special, a personal note and our dogs name on homemade treats , lovely. Nothing was forgotten, we will definitely return not just for the cottage but the area is beautiful too with plenty of walks on your doorstep, thank you for making our stay special.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. I'm so glad that you had such a good time and found the cottage such a good base for your trip. When I set up the cottage, everything was bought specifically for it so I'm delighted that you found it so "stylish", it's so good to know my efforts have hit the right mark! I'm also so pleased that your dog enjoyed his facilities and the homemade treats I left for him, I know the doggy shower gets a lot of use with so many rural walks around this stunning area of the country. Thank you again for your review, I do hope we can welcome you back to Dulverton in the future!

“Excellent homely , dog friendly cottage“

  • 5 of 5

A tranquil very dog friendly home from home. The description of the property was very accurate with exquisite attention to detail. We felt at home as soon as we entered the front door. Elaine was very responsive to messages and provided plenty of pre visit information and advice. Traveling with two teenagers ,two working dogs and two adults looking for rest and relaxation can be tricky but this cottage fulfilled all criteria’s for us. The field down the road that Elaine directed us to was an excellent area to excercise our dogs. During our stay we visited Dulverton, Tiverton, Exeter, Torquay, Paignton and Woolacoombe Beach which makes this cottage and ideal location, The route to the cottage is one of the most scenic ones we have travelled.
