Brightworthy Farm


In the midst of rolling moorland and above the scenic valley of the River Barle, Brightworthy Farmboasts a stunning Exmoor location set two miles from the picturesque and unspoilt village of Withypool.  This handsome secluded farmhouse is accessed via a long driveway and stands amongst 137 acres offering ultimate peace and relaxation for all ages.  Many outstanding moorland walks are available directly from its front door plus DIY horse stabling may also be available with enquiry.   The detached farmhouse is spacious and light with outstanding views and features a large enclosed garden. Whilst some aspects of the house may not be ultra-modern, this is readily forgiven and more than made up by the property’s character, space and location. The bedrooms have recently undergone a sympathetic refurbishment and the living areas with their open fires and wood stoves offer plenty of comfort after a long day of exploring.
