Welcome to Ball Cottage, Winsford

A holiday cottage in beautiful Exmoor National Park


Ball Cottage may be old, but it has all the comforts you need today. Last year we switched over to gas central heating and water. We also redesigned the kitchen and bathroom while retaining their cottage character.

There are three bedrooms: a double bedroom downstairs and two bedrooms upstairs, one double, the other twin. All beds have interior-sprung mattresses, duvets and two pillows per person. The double beds have king-size goose down duvets. For small children there is a travel cot, a high chair, a potty, plastic cups, plates and cutlery.

Bed linen (including a bottom sheet for the cot), bathroom and kitchen towels are provided, but please bring your own beach towels for day trips.

The bathroom has a bath, powerful shower, large heated towel rail and shaver point. 

The kitchen/dining room has new units, a gas hob, electric oven, dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave oven, fridge, electric kettle, toaster, coffee-maker and plug-in radio. In the utility room there is a freezer and, yes, our old pine dresser has been kept. There is a full complement of crockery, cutlery, glasses and kitchen equipment.

In the sitting room there is an open fire (free logs), a flat screen TV with Sky box, and a DVD player. The cottage has free wifi.

Our pay phone takes no operator calls except 999, but there’s a public phone 200 metres away in the village. We have no mobile signal in Winsford.

The cottage has its own garage and roadside parking. There is a picnic table, chairs and barbecue if you want to cook out by the river.

On arriving, you will find tea, sugar, salt and pepper in the cottage, also a bottle of wine to prove your holiday has begun.

Sorry, but we can’t accommodate pets.

Ball Cottage has been our holiday home for over 40 years. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
