Open Plan Kitchen, Dining Room and Lounge
Kitchen and Dining Room
Charming farmhouse style meets sleek open plan design in Nightjar’s magnificent kitchen and dining room. The modern central island is finished in black polished stone and features a built-in Zanussi microwave and plenty of cleverly concealed storage space. A Falcon oven and five ring induction hob makes cooking up a country banquet a breeze, ready to be enjoyed by family and friends at the large oak dining table seating 10. A Kenwood dishwasher handles the cleaning up while a Dulce Gusto coffee machine and Haier wine fridge take care of after dinner drinks – best enjoyed from the comfort of the cosy open plan lounge.
Please note: guests with pacemakers should avoid using the induction hob as this can interfere with the device.
Adorned with plush velvet cushions and soft sheepskin throws, the lounge features a myriad of colours and textures, from deep yellows and olive greens to rich blues and luxurious pinks. Start the night with board games and drinks before cosying up on one of the vintage leather sofas to the crackle of the grand freestanding log burner. Complete with a Bose speaker, fill the evening with music as you catch up with family and friends.
A 65” LG Smart TV provides another fabulous entertainment option for long nights, while balmy summer evenings are best enjoyed from the sun-drenched decking. Open the doors and head outside for an al fresco tapas, or wait until darkness falls to wrap up warm and enjoy a nightcap as the sky becomes dotted with stars.
Bright, spacious and blissfully private, the Master Bedroom looks out across the surrounding countryside. With a king size bed for sleepy mornings, this gorgeous bedroom features beautiful soft grey interiors. An idyllic spot for relaxation, take advantage of the expansive double height windows by raising the blinds and looking out across the moors from the comfort of a vibrant velvet armchair.
Beautifully framed by wooden beams, the en-suite bathroom is finished in traditional exposed stone. The luxurious bath tub enjoys a sky view from the Velux window, creating a perfect evening escape to sink into a cloud of bubbles beneath starry skies. The walk-in Nikles shower with waterfall head makes for an invigorating start to the day, while a Hatria farmhouse style sink continues the room’s country feel.
A real interior haven, Bedroom Two is an elegant space with a creative and homely design. The versatile zip and link bed provides the option for a king or two twins, tailoring the room for all group make-ups. The unique wood effect wall and beautiful brushed cotton bedding continue the pastoral theme, while side tables and a rustic chest of drawers provide ample storage space. Take a moment for yourself and admire the rolling countryside views from the window, as ponies from the stables graze in the neighbouring pastures.
A large walk-in shower in the en-suite bathroom makes for an exhilarating wake-up call before heading out for long country rambles across Exmoor.
Just outside Bedroom Two, a separate TV area complete with inviting bean bags and a selection of games provides the perfect opportunity to break away from the group.
Located at the opposite end of the house to the Master Bedroom, this cosy king size room is a total suntrap in the summer months and an inviting farmhouse hideaway for when the weather takes a turn. Owing to its large skylight window and cool colour palette, Bedroom Three is flooded with natural light, while an expansive mirrored wardrobe provides plenty of hanging space. High vaulted ceilings and original beams add to the cosy cottage feel, while vibrant soft furnishings create an inviting setting to lose yourself in a good book before breakfast.
The sleek en-suite bathroom has everything you need to prepare for the day, with a huge walk-in shower, stunning wraparound feature wall and tree-top views.
Inspired by coast and country, this spacious twin bedroom occupies the farthest corner of the property and is awash with colour and personality. From the striking deep blue interiors and industrial style beds to the arresting wooden beams and characterful oak furniture, the space is a welcoming holiday bolthole for guests of all ages.
Beautifully finished from floor to ceiling in textured blue and grey tiles, the adjoining en-suite has a luxurious roll-top bath, while exposed beams and a sloping Velux window welcome light and charm in abundance.
Complete with a Miele washing machine and tumble dryer along with a large Villeroy and Bosch sink, the Utility Room is well equipped to ensure everything is in order during your stay. There is also a handy W/C at the end of the Utility.
Terrace, Hot Tub and Outdoor Space
Accessed through the doors in the lounge, the decked terrace is ideal for hosting sociable breakfasts and evening dinners, while the barbecue area at the front of the property is a peaceful spot to sit and watch the world go by. A brand new hot tub* provides precious moments of indulgence after days spent exploring the rural surroundings.
Just outside Nightjar below the terrace, there’s an enclosed section of garden with a fire pit and large outdoor dining table – perfect for coming together on lazy afternoons and warm evenings.
*Please note: the hot tub is emptied and cleaned out after every booking. Occasionally this may result in the hot tub not being up to maximum temperature on the first night of your arrival. The hot tub may also require a mid-stay service or maintenance check.
Set within acres of picturesque rolling countryside, Nightjar is perfectly placed to explore Exmoor on horseback, complete with stables and ample parking.
For guests looking to bring their own horses, the stables next to Nightjar can comfortably accommodate up to three, providing the perfect excuse to explore the vast pastoral idyll of Exmoor National Park.
The outdoor space at Nightjar provides ample parking for four cars if required.
