West Withy Farm Cottages
West Withy Farm Cottages - Dog Friendly Accommodation in Exmoor, SomersetOur cottages are located in beautiful Exmoor countryside between Wimbleball Lake and Clatworthy Reservoir – we are about one mile from each.
Nestling on a 23 acre farm, close to the Exmoor towns of Dulverton and Dunster, you will look out from your dog friendly, self-catering holiday cottage on green fields toward Haddon Hill in the distance. Your nearest neighbour is over half a mile away.
Our cottages were converted from two Exmoor stone barns in the mid 1980’s to create extremely spacious, characterful, dog friendly holiday cottages. West Withy Farm cottages have been welcoming visitors now for 30 years.
Each cottage’s character – huge beams and 50 cm solid stone external walls is now complemented by modern internal facilities. Cottages have integrated kitchens, free standing showers, full central heating, double glazing and private, enclosed, dog friendly gardens. They provide a modern home surrounded by beautiful Exmoor countryside for you on your dream holiday.
Here are some of the facilities that you will find outside your cottage door and in the grounds at West Withy Farm.
But first. here are the things you will not hear (and smell) – cars, planes, trains, pneumatic drills, loud voices (except your own). Just silence interrupted by bird song , running water and perhaps laughter.
Our nearest neighbours are about 1000 meters away – you can just about see their house.

“Stayed in Stable Cottage for 6 weeks, had our dog, Jack and cat, Tabby. The owners were so welcoming, the Cottage was fantastic and surrounding area lovely for our pets. Great walks and very peaceful. The Cottage had everything you could possibly need and was very cosy. The lovely garden was enclosed and safe for our dog. We had a wonderful time. Highly recommended!”
