DESCRIPTION

A beautifully presented detached Edwardian property currently being run as a B&B dating back to c.1910, stands in a prominent position at the centre of the ever popular Exmoor village of Wheddon Cross whilst enjoying views towards Dunkery Beacon. Internal inspection is a must!

Exmoor House

Exmoor House B&B is in an ideal location for visitors to the National Park. with a good range of historical and other attractions, so is an excellent destination for holidays and breaks. The area is popular with cyclists and walkers, and there is a range of nearby walks.

The property stands in a prominent position at the centre of the village, well situated for any passing trade. From some of the rooms there are views towards Dunkery Beacon, the bright and spacious accommodation benefits from period charm, combined with everyday modern living and benefits from oil fired central heating, double glazing, ample off road parking and gardens.

The property was built in 1910 to accommodate a tailors's shop and staff/apprentices. It has since been home to the village reading room, skittle alley and various shops but has been run as a guest house, in some form or other, since at least the 1940's.

Although the current owners run it with five ensuite letting rooms it can easily be altered to have an additional two ensuite letting rooms and/or a self contained, ground floor apartment.
