Foxtwitchen is a spectacular 7 bedroom house set high on the hill above Withypool, enjoying far reaching views of Exmoor. The house is also with Europe’s first Dark Skies Reserve and the skies at night are amazing. The house can sleep 14 people and takes dogs making it a great place for extended families or a group of friends to enjoy a break away from it all in luxurious surroundings.
Foxtwitchen is a short walk down the hill to the charming Exmoor village of Withypool, with a great pub, The Royal Oak which serves good food and local ales. The village also has a local shop and post office. There is an ancient six arch bridge over the River Barle, which has a pretty picnic area on the banks of the river. There is also a lovely walk that stretches along the river to Tarr Stepps and Landacre Bridge.
Foxtwitchen is a large 7 bedroom house with underfloor heating throughout and 4 separate fireplaces and four living rooms and surrounded by lovely gardens, so there is plenty of space for everyone to relax in peace and for children to run wild.
You enter the house via large entrance hall with hooks for coats and space for muddy boots. There is a handy utility room off the entrance hall which has two washing machines, a tumble dryer, a butler’s sink and airing cupboards.
The entrance hall leads to a large, central corridor with an open fireplace and large round table plus doors to the gardens. The kitchen is massive as you would expect in a house of this stature and is full of charm and character as well as being very well quipped with 4 dish-washers, an electric oven and hob and a pantry with large fridge-freezer. There is also a wooden table and chairs for six and an armchair and a fire, all very cosy for relaxing on Winter nights. There is also a door to the rear garden.
The dining room is off the kitchen and has a large table which seats 10 and another table for four, ideal for children wanting to together. The dining room has floor to ceiling windows and glass doors to the garden and providing fantastic views over Exmoor.
The large living room is at the other end of the house and has a massive feature fireplace plus comfy sofas and chairs and two coffee tables. There are also doors to the terrace with table and chairs.
