Little Folly

Frances and Mike look forward to welcoming you to Little Folly Exmoor.

After recently moving here with a dog, 2 horses and a cat, We immediately became enchanted by this special place. Surrounded by sweeping moors and wide, clear night skies, Little Folly is the perfect holiday cottage for those seeking a well-earned break or a much-needed retreat. Infused with peace and a deep tranquillity, it has inspired artists and writers.

 Nestled in the folds of the landscape, a short walk or indeed a run or cycle will take you over moorland, past babbling brooks, through moss-clad woodland and beside a patchwork of meadowland. There are several glorious walks from the front door through this magical landscape where you are likely to meet small herds of Exmoor ponies or even deer. Birds include snipe, skylarks, buzzards and many other species. You can watch our wildlife from the warmth of the cottage with a bustling bird table just outside the picture window which has long views across the moor. The garden is a quiet spot in which to relax. On a clear night with a warm drink or a glass of wine, you can gaze up at the Milky Way, in this designated Dark Sky Area.

Dulverton is the closest town and has a small supermarket, butcher, deli, a beautiful bookshop and the Dulverton National Park Centre. There are plenty of cosy tea rooms and delightful pubs and restaurants within a short drive.

Little Folly sleeps up to four people and up to two well behaved, supervised dogs are welcome. With ample parking, Little Folly is the perfect place from which to explore the wonders of Exmoor.

Little Folly is attached to our house (The Folly) but has a separate and private entrance and is all yours for the duration of your stay. 

When making a booking or an enquiry, please tell me that you found this Exmoor holiday cottage in Winsford on the My Favourite Holiday Cottages website.

Absolutely Wonderful!

Absolutely wonderful place to stay. You literally are in the middle of nowhere. The views from the accommodation are breathtaking. As it's remote, be prepared to travel to shop for essentials. We have rebooked as we felt very welcome and at home.

Could AskFor Nothing More

We had a lovely welcome with a chocolate cake and fresh flowers. Adrian was a fabulous host and Little Folly was spotlessly clean and totally reassuring with all the measures in place against Covid-19. It was so peaceful there with gorgeous views. It was great to watch all the birds on the feeder. We had everything we needed in cutlery, pots and pans etc. The beds were really comfy, lots of hot water and a great shower. What’s not to like! Tinka, Adrian’s Jack Russell, is an absolute delight, always happy to see you. Huge thanks to Adrian and everyone who ensured our stay was a really enjoyable one.

The Perfect Host

Adrian had spent a great deal of time planning for the safety of his guests during the pandemic. Excellent little cottage in a superb location. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.

A Perfect End to the Holiday Season

We had a fantastic stay at Little Folly, one of the best-equipped cottages we have stayed at. We really appreciated the thoughtful gestures: the locally produced hand sanitiser, flowers, cake, milk and dog biscuits on arrival. Adrian was a superb host and nothing was too much trouble. I wholeheartedly recommend Little Folly for anyone wanting to explore Exmoor.

Our 13th Year!

Since 2006 we have stayed at Little Folly at least twice a year and the self catering facility has never been faulted. The welcome and attention to the clients' requirements has always been exceptional.

Joy of Exmoor

Really kind and helpful owner and such a friendly little dog with a big personality. Wonderful location and beautiful cottage. Ideal self-catering. Self-contained parking. Comfortable with a lovely picture window over fabulous Exmoor views and lots of garden birds. A privilege for us to stay.

LOVELY, WONDERFUL AND PEACEFUL

Everything was perfect. Adrian is a great host and very kind. The cottage is lovely, there is plenty of garden, the views are beautiful and the bird feeder just outside the living room window provided wonderful entertainment, watching a variety of birds feeding. A very peaceful setting, too.
