The Setting
For those interested in a rural way of life then both Hill Farm and the Parish of West Anstey are an ideal location for you. Whilst on the very fringe of the National Park the property is conveniently tucked away from the majority of the hustle and bustle with tourists and visitors, yet close enough to all the main beauty spots to really feel being part of the wonderful and dynamic way of life that Exmoor offers.

The Parishes of East Anstey and West Anstey are a real throwback to how rural Exmoor Life was before the formation of the National Park, with quiet yet pretty rural communities right in the heart of rolling farming and moorland countryside with ease of access to Dulverton to the East and the North Devon Market town of South Molton to the west.

The Exmoor market town of Dulverton offers a wide range of independent shops, stores, farmers' market, renowned restaurants and pubs (popular with locals and visitors alike). Local amenities including primary school, doctors, dentist, vets, pharmacy, beauty spa, and sports facilities including a cricket club, tennis and squash courts. Larger supermarkets and town facilities can be found at Tiverton or Minehead. Access to the M5 and National Rail links are circa 20 miles South East with direct train links to London Paddington taking around 2 hours.

Exmoor National Park For those keen on country pursuits and sporting activities, Exmoor is one of the smallest National Parks (267 square miles) but arguably one of the most attractive, offering such a variety of scenery from high heather-clad moorland, deep wooded river valleys to the breathtaking coastline boasting the highest marine cliffs in England and of course Exmoor's famous amazing Dark Skies, which can be admired from the grounds of the property.
