Discover the little gem that is Little Owl, very conveniently located a couple of doors up from award winning pub The Masons Arms..

As you step over the threshold of this charming 16th century thatched cottage your eye is instantly drawn to the dining table set for two, ready for romantic feasts together. The comfy Laura Ashley leather sofa invites you to relax and curl up in front of the Inglenook fireplace. The wood burning stove (logs included) is perfect for cooler evenings and toasting Marshmallows. Watch the world go by from the large window seat or perhaps watch your favourite movies on the 32 inch LCD 3D TV with Blu Ray and Netflix - with high speed Wi-Fi you won't be slowed down! Restoration has been tastefully completed with small touches like Bakelite light switches, hand made Nigel Tyas wall lights and original ceiling beams that are in keeping with the wonderful characteristics of the property. As if that wasn't enough features in the lounge and dining area you will also spot the honesty bar with a few favourite tipples and fine wines (don't forget to bring your favourite mixers!).

Leading from the lounge/dining area you all find your fully equipped kitchen with all you need for a short stay including a ceramic hob & oven, Dualit toaster & kettle, fridge. You will also find luxury items like Denby pottery, Le Creuset pots and pans. Exit through the back door and meander along the stepping stones past the bistro table (perfect for Al fresco dining!) and you will uncover your very own private hot tub with breath taking views over Exmoor. Now let's talk about the not so exciting (but very necessary) room in the cottage - the bathroom. Offering a WC, sink and shower you have fluffy towels, robes and L'Occitane toiletries to look forward to.

Follow the character oak stair case (with a rope banister) to the bedroom that encompasses the first floor. It oozes character with its original wonky cob walls and a wonderful window seat in which to sit and watch the world go by. It has a double white iron bed with luxury mattress, Mulberry throw, luxury duvet, pillows and sheets. Furniture includes a dressing table with chair, side tables and ample storage for clothes. The bedroom is very welcoming with shabby chic decorations and Farrow and Ball colours. Remote control mood lighting is set up so you can control all the lights from the bed :-)
