The School House is a spacious Victorian property in a beautiful spot on Exmoor making it a perfect destination for family and friends get-togethers. As the name suggests, this property was once a school for the local villages but it has since been transformed into memorable and comfortable accommodation for 11 people (up to 13 including sofa bed) plus cot.
The open-plan living/dining room has a large wood-burner and plenty of comfortable seating, a full-size table tennis table and an upright piano. The kitchen adjoins the living area and leads out onto the delightful terrace with stunning views down the valley and to the moors into the distance. Beyond the dining area is a cosy ‘snug’ with further comfortable seating (including sofa-bed for two extras if required), this leads through to two downstairs bedrooms – one double with en-suite and one triple bedroom (bunk beds plus single), there is also a downstairs bathroom. Upstairs are three further bedrooms, one four-poster double bedroom, a second double bedroom and a twin room plus bathroom.
This property is well-equipped; kitchen appliances include fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, combination microwave-grill, and oven with hob. The living area includes a television with Sky TV, video and DVD player and radio/cassette/CD player. A table tennis table is situated in the living area and an upright piano. Wireless broadband is available and a cot and high chair is provided as well. Water is supplied by natural spring.
The School House boasts a delightful terrace with outdoor seating, barbecue and wonderful views of the valley beneath, perfect for relaxing and eating alfresco! Guests may also explore the sloping gardens complete with stream which leads down into the valley below and on to the village of Brendon where you will find the local pub, The Staghunters Inn. Grazing for horses and private river fishing can be arranged by prior agreement.
