After dinner there is plenty of room for everyone in the lounge, where you can all sit and relax and watch a movie together on the Smart TV/DVD and Blu-ray player. Or you can just sit and admire the breathtaking views over Exmoor from the double patio doors. Heading further into the house you will find the remaining three bedrooms. A twin with Smart TV, DAB Radio and Bluetooth speaker, another super-king-size zip-and-link (which can be made into a twin on request) with Smart TV, DAB Radio and Bluetooth speaker and finally a king-size with Smart TV, DAB Radio and Bluetooth speaker and en-suite shower room with shower and WC.
