We have not known a week fly by so quickly!  Lovely to make a return visit to this cosy cottage, so well equiped with added cream tea and fizz.  We've had another great holiday in this part of Somerset - the beech hedges and trees are so beautiful - we will return.  Thank you.

Sept 2022 M & D

Thank you so much for the scones, cream & fizz.  Very much appreciated after a long drive!  We enjoyed Watchett, Dunster and the Castle (amazing), Porlock Weir (we ate a good meal in The Ship Inn) and drinks in The Bear amongst other places.  The cottage is lovely, but the weather could have been better.

Thank you for having us!  This was the first holiday we have had as a family of 3.  We had an amzing time and made memories we will never forget.  This place is beautiful, peaceful and we would love to return in the future!  Thank you again.

July/Aug 2022 N & C

Thank you so much for providing such a wonderful cottage, equipped with such care and attention and spotlessly clean!  The bed is fabulously comfortable and it's been a joy to wake to the sound of house martins tweeting in the morning and a great surprise to hear the turtle dove in the evenings.  We've been fortunate too with the weather, but to be honest Exmoor is beautiful rain or sunshine.  Highlights have been Dunster, Castle and surroundings, Heddon Valley and coastal views, Porlock - Culoden Church - Bossington, Selworthy, Doone Valley........ and sampling all the local delights - cakes, ice creams,cider etc.  We will return many times!

July 2022, R & M

Felt like home as soon as we arrived.  I wanted a solo time-out in a place I felt warm and welcome.  It was more than I imagined.  Kindness and generosity from the hosts.  Lovely conversations.  I explored all of Exmoor.  Walked my socks off and looked forward to returning to a cosy, beautiful space.  Everything you need in a beautifully decorated home. 10/10!  Absolutely stunning.  Perfect place for R & R and genuine authentic kindness of the hosts.  We will be back!

We had such a lovely, tranquil stay – just what we were after! An escape to the countryside, pre –Christmas away from our busy lives. It’s such a cosy and homely cottage – and really does remind me of the cottage from the Xmas movie The Holiday. The prosecco and scones were a lovely touch, along with the Christmas décor! Thank you for welcoming us to Somerset – we would happily stay again!

Top rating or full 5 stars for each and every category. Everything was as described on the website, great secluded location, clean, neat and tidy, quiet, ideal for couples romantic getaway, or even singletons like myself wanting tranquility from the everyday hustle of the city. Cannot fault it in any way. Awesome.
