Peaceful and tranquil - the two most common words that visitors use to describe their experience of Nutsford House. Maybe it’s all the trees, perhaps it’s just the quiet. Either way, it is definitely relaxing.
Built in the 1920s, the house has been lovingly restored to combine its original grandeur with 21st century convenience. It stands on high ground overlooking The Brockey Valley in its 10 acres of landscaped gardens and private woodland, tucked in amongst trees and babbling streams, with the wilds of Exmoor rising above it.
The woods and gardens at Nutsford House are a haven for nature and for wildlife. Visitors are welcome to wander through them and you’re more likely to see a red deer or a great spotted woodpecker than you are another person.
And, while it really feels like you're in the middle of nowhere, in reality you're just a short walk across the fields (or an even shorter drive) to Dulverton, the southern Gateway to Exmoor, where you’ll find shops, restaurants, pubs and the National Park Centre. Whether you’re a walker, a fisherman or a cyclist, you have the rest of Exmoor National Park literally on your doorstep.
We moved here in 2022 in search of a quieter existence. And we have found it! We hope you too will find some peace and tranquility during your stay with us.
