The Ballroom is part of Cutthorne Farm, beautifully situated in a private valley deep in the heart of the Exmoor. If you are looking for peace and quiet in the middle of some of the most beautiful countryside in England, then this is the place for you!
The farm has 14th century origins and the property has been carefully converted into comfortable holiday accommodation from an original stone outbuilding. The Ballroom was once used for hunt balls and retains many original features, including a solid oak floor.
From the cobbled yard, entrance is via a useful downstairs utility with plenty of room for hanging up coats and storing muddy walking boots. The rest of the accommodation is upstairs, situated on the first floor of what used to be the original 17th century threshing barn. There is an open fireplace in the sitting room and French doors open from the dining area onto a private and enclosed terrace with picnic bench. There are two bedrooms which can sleep up to four guests; one double (king-sized bed) and one twin room. The sitting room and bedrooms both have beautiful views down the valley.
The Ballroom is adjoined to The Shippon, another holiday property, which also sleeps 4 guests.
The Ballroom kitchen is fitted with fridge (with freezer compartment), microwave, electric oven and hob. Other equipment includes toaster, kettle, a variety of kitchen utensils, cutlery, crockery and glasses.
A television with Freeview, DVD player and DAB radio is provided and wireless broadband is available throughout the property. An iron and ironing board is provided for your convenience.
Electricity and heating costs are included in the price of your accommodation. The Ballroom benefits from central heating fuelled by biomass boiler, which keeps the property nice and cosy during the cooler months. There is also an open fire in the sitting room. One basket of logs and some kindling will be provided, additional logs can be purchased if you require them. Bed linen, duvets, blankets and towels are provided for your convenience, but please bring your own beach towels if you wish to take towels with you on day trips.
To the rear of the property is an enclosed and private patio area with picnic bench for eating al fresco during the warmer weather. The patio is accessed via French doors from the dining area. Parking is available directly outside the property on the cobbled yard, which is shared with The Shippon (holiday cottage next door). The water supply comes from a natural spring.
Dogs are welcome by prior arrangement (maximum of 2). A supplementary fee of £25 will be added to your invoice.
Please note: this cottage is situated on a farm therefore you are required to ensure your dog under your control at all times, this includes free-range ducks in the yard where the cars are parked as well as livestock in the fields.
Furthermore, please do not allow your dogs on the furniture and do not leave them alone in the property at any time.
The farm offers turnout and stabling facilities for those wanting to bring their horse on holiday. Charges are £12 per night per horse for stabling and turnout on a DIY basis. Please contact us prior to booking to check availability for horses.
