Property Description

Set on a quiet country lane in beautiful walking country overlooking the Bristol Channel, Parsonage Farm is the perfect holiday location to ’get away from it all’. There has been a house here for almost a thousand years and that rich history is still evident in both properties. Reputedly, Coleridge wrote ’Kubla Khan’ in Culbone Parsonage, the main house. Parsonage Farm Stables (ref 15800) occupies what would once have been the hayloft floor of the adjoining barn, and Parsonage Otter Stables (ref 18192) has been attractively converted from the old stables. The holiday properties are ideally located as a base for walking, touring and riding on the crown of Exmoor. Places to visit include Porlock, Lynton and Lynmouth, Watchet Marina and Dunster Castle (NT). The glorious West Somerset and North Devon Coast, Minehead, Exmoor and Lorna Doone Valley are all within easy reach. The highest ’Free House’ pub on Exmoor is just a mile or so away from the house. Picturesque Porlock Weir with its shingle beach is just 3 miles down the hill via a toll road, and local shops can be found in the sleepy village of Porlock. Refs 15800 and 18192 can be booked together to accommodate up to 7 guests.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Ideally situated for the wonderful scenery of Exmoor and the rugged coastline. Red deer can be seen at night from the cottage. The wild life is excellent. The owner very helpful. And for once - a really comfortable bed - I don’t normally sleep on holiday, but this place was excellent. June 2012.
  2. We love this cottage - our second visit to Culbone Parsonage this year. It’s absolutely peaceful and remote, with views over fields full of sheep, to the sea. Look at the dark skies to see the stars. Walk to Culbone church, and the coast path to Porlock. Ride horses across the moor. Excellent retreat! Oct 2011.
  3. Unbeatable location with excellent views to the coast. Beware the walk to Culbone Church, which is longer and steeper than it looks on the map. However, a visit is well worth the effort if you can make it. July 2011.
  4. Nicely furnished, good sized comfortable rooms. Nov 2010.
  5. Very peaceful. Oct 2010.
  6. Wonderful spot if you want to get away from it all. Only neighbours are sheep. Very pretty in the snow. Feb 2010.
  7. Wonderful location. Oct 2009.
  8. Everything is quite simply perfect. Aug 2009.
  9. Lovely place to visit, caretaker very good and helpful. Want to go back now! March 2009.
  10. Property was very homely and welcoming. Beautiful location. Caretaker very helpful and very knowledgable about the property and the area. Aug 2009.
  11. A wonderfully peaceful spot with the sea close by. Perfect for walking, riding and if you happen to be writer, great place to work! (My husband is an author). Many thanks had a great time. May 2008.
  12. The helpfulness of the site manager was excellent and if you want an escape to the real country you could not do much better. For views and peace and quiet non better. June 2008.
  13. Fabulous location, excellent facilities for that get-away from it all break, with excellent walks and interesting National Trust properties close by. Local food and cider superb. Aug 2007.
  14. Excellent welcome by caretaker - John - on arrival who explained all about the accommodation and surrounding area. Very clean and modern . Would highly recommend. Aug 2006.
  15. Lovely cottage in an idyllic location. We really appreciated getting away from it all in style! Feb 2006.
  16. An absolutely beautiful location and cottage. The best view we have had in many years. Oct 2006.
