Nestled in woodland at the edge of the Barle Valley in Exmoor National Park, Northmoor comfortably sleeps 28 with the entrance lodge also available to rent which sleeps 5. Ideal for reunions and family holidays, Northmoor exudes a relaxed, romantic atmosphere come rain or shine. Built in 1856 by the owner of a large lead works in newly industrialised Newcastle, Northmoor still proudly fulfils its original vocation and offers a perfect rural retreat to relax and enjoy oneself.
Sensitively restored, the house is little altered since Victorian times and many original features, such as servants bells and the butlers bath stowed in a cupboard make Northmoor a fascinating place to stay and explore. Two large kitchens offers ample modern facilities to cater for all occupants during your stay. The billiards room, along with table tennis and table football will provide plenty of indoor entertainment. A disabled access bathroom and bedroom on the ground floor, and no steps throughout the ground floor mean that Northmoor can be enjoyed by all.
Wild Red Deer frequent the garden and park, and the adjoining Sessile Oak woodlands are a designated area of special scientific interest. The clear waters of the Barle are only a short walk from the main house and intrepid explorers will find themselves ideally placed to explore the Exmoor National Park. The picturesque town of Dulverton is just 1.5 miles, and can be reached without using the road, perfect for a cream tea. Dulverton offers a selection of places to eat, a Co-op, bakery, butchers, chemists, library and local information.
Local stables offer beautiful riding opportunities and we have 3/4 mile of private double bank fishing on the Barle.
Northmoor has been in the same ownership since 1994, and is now run by the owners daughter, Tammy.
