Eric: It's Sunday so I don't mind what you do, but I am going to lie here all day unless you want to feed me treats.
Flynn: I don't think I will be doing anything either so we may as well let mum have the blog again to show the rest of her photos.
Thanks boys. We stayed in a farmhouse Bed and Breakfast but all the rooms had gone, so the owner said we could have the complete middle floor of his self catering cottage for the same price.It is a converted stone barn which sleeps 14 people and is only a few yards from the main farmhouse where we went for our breakfast every morning. This is part of the huge lounge we had sole use of. The french windows lead onto a patio area with picnic tables and a barbecue.
This is part of the patio with views of Exmoor beyond the fields.
From the front of the house we could watch the horses grazing in the fields.
The fish pond below the farmhouse.
This is the main farmhouse where the B and B rooms are. Breakfast was in the conservatory every morning. On the right is the covered swimming pool.
This is the converted barn we stayed in. On the bottom floor are two large four poster bedrooms. The top floor is built into the roof of the barn and has another two large double bedrooms. There is also an open studio type room with four single beds suitable for children but big enough for adults. The floor we were on had one double bedroom a huge lounge, a dining room with table to seat sixteen people and a large fully fitted kitchen with another table to seat six people.
After breakfast the next day we went to Porlock Weir.
We went over a little steel bridge to have a look at this picturesque house. We didn't know until we got over to it that the piece of land it is on is called Turkey Island. We don't know why it was called that though.
On the way back into the village we saw this sign on the chimney which made us laugh.
There are lots of lovely old cottages here too.
Then we drove back across Exmoor to our B and B.
Two deer ran across the road in front of us. One jumped straight over the hedge before I had chance to get a photo, the other doubled back across the moor, then when she thought she was a safe distance, stopped and turned to look at us which gave me chance to get a somewhat distant photo.
I hope you have enjoyed the photos. The boys can have their blog back again now.
