Limecombe is owned and managed by Edward Greenall.
It is thought that the Exmoor retreat Limecombe was originally a pair of cottages built for railwaymen due to work on the line from Simonsbath to Porlock. The railway never happened, but the cottages remained, and these days provide superior accommodation for up to ten guests in a tranquil National Park setting.
Surrounded by moorland, Limecombe is a secluded property, found at the end of a private track. Once you arrive, you’ll discover it’s spacious as well as equipped with all you need. The large kitchen, lined with wooden cabinets, has a gas cooker, microwave and dishwasher, as well as a substantial fridge freezer. In addition to a good-looking dining area inside, there are picnic tables outside.
Also downstairs, there’s a cosy, wooden-floored lounge with TV and log-burner, plus four of the five bedrooms. Each one has its own en suite shower room, while the fifth – upstairs – has the use of a separate bathroom complete with bath. All the bedrooms can be used as twin rooms as needed.
There’s plenty of parking at Limecombe, and the location is a gift for those seeking a revitalising country walk or two, whether you follow a pre-defined route or just go wandering. Fishing, cycling and horse-riding are among the activities you can take part in around Exmoor National Park, and numerous beaches line the nearby coast – you are only around 8 miles inland. Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton Sands will be worth the trip.
The water-powered Cliff Railway from Lynton to Lynmouth is one of the area’s closest and most popular attractions, while there are boat trips to Lundy Island from pretty Ilfracombe to the west. The village of Porlock, once a busy port, has a number of cafés, restaurants and an aquarium, all within around 30 minutes’ drive. Surrounded by the hills of Exmoor, this picturesque place met with the approval of Wordsworth and Coleridge – and is sure to get yours too.
Big enough for a really special get together, Limecombe will introduce you all to the charm of Exmoor.
