Relax in your very own (rented) slice of Exmoor.
Treat yourself to a holiday in one of these luxury self-catered accommodations.
Sometimes a 5-star hotel isn’t necessarily the best choice for a truly relaxing break. The polished floors and starched formality of a 5-star hotel can often have the opposite effect guests. After all, you’re paying hundreds of pounds for the privilege of sharing a public spaces with other people. You might have your own room to retreat to, but there’s always the knowledge that so many others have slept there already and then there’s the waiting staff and cleaners to contend with – put simply, it’s can often be more trouble than it’s worth.
For a while now there has been another option for holidaymakers looking to find a new kind of peace and quiet.

These luxury accommodations provide you with the privacy and peace to truly enjoy your stay:
