Property Description

Middle Burrow is a beautiful example of a 17th Century detached farmhouse and is delightfully situated in a small peaceful hamlet between the Exmoor villages of Timbers combe and Wootton Courtenay and is within a few miles of the coast.
The property stands in 13.18 acres (5.33 hectare) to include around 2.5 acres of the most stunning mature and manicured gardens with a large pond which is an undoubted attraction.

The cottage, which is of immense character and charm is centrally heated, is predominantly double glazed and has been sympathetically improved whilst retaining many inherent features to include exposed beams, inglenook fireplace, bread oven and window seats.

There is a useful income derived from one self-contained holiday cottage and three guest suites which are all finished to a very high standard. The guest suites form part of a converted barn opposite the farmhouse and can be used as ancillary accommodation or to take advantage of the highly successful bed and breakfast trade.

There are three reception rooms all overlooking the wonderful gardens to include a lovely sitting room with exposed beams, inglenook stone fireplace with peephole window and woodburner, a charming triple aspect drawing room with open fireplace and window seat and a slate floored garden room with full height picture windows and sliding doors to a stone pillared terrace overlooking the gardens and off the room is a study with fitted desk and open shelving. The fitted kitchen/breakfast room also enjoys garden views, has a door into the gardens and is fitted with a modern range of kitchen units with granite working surfaces and inset sink with mixer tap, integrated dishwasher, former stone fireplace with beam over, feature bread oven and inset oil fired Aga with slate tiled surround.

Two of the rooms have fitted wardrobes and the master suite offers a separate dressing room with an excellent range of fitted wardrobes and a luxury bathroom with four piece suite to include a claw foot roll top slipper bath, pedestal wash basin, low level W.C and a separate glazed shower enclosure. To complete the first floor there is also a shower room fitted with a three piece white suite.

Outside there is use of its own private garden area.

In North Barn there are three beautifully presented and fully furnished guest suites which have been used in conjuction with the bed and breakfast business. All three spacious suites have been furnished to a high standard and offer vaulted ceilings, double glazed windows, central heating, seating areas and en-suite shower rooms. The Magnolia and Copper Beech suites are on the first floor whilst Mulberry suite is on the ground and is the single storey part of barn conversion. This suite/annexe has the benefit of a large open plan living space and its own private garden.


The property is approached through double opening timber gates onto a large gravelled forecourt providing excellent parking, turning facilities and giving access to the main house, cottage and guest suites. There is an enclosed lawn garden with fruit trees reserved for guests and a five bar gate off the forecourt gives access to a track which leads to the open fronted barn, stables and land.
