We have been renting a family cottage in August with 4 bedrooms for 10 years and this one is the best. 2 on suits and one family bathroom with no interruption of hot water. Broadband needs upgrading, only works in part of the cottage. Very nice cake waiting for us on arrival. Brilliant holiday.

Very appealing cottage in a good location for touring Somerset and West Devon. Nicely laid out and with good equipment. Beds were OK. Nearest shopping is really in Minehead, about 20 minutes away, but there are a lot of nice pubs for eating out within a short distance. Lanes approaching the property are very narrow and effectively single track, butRead more with very limited local traffic. Hide

We received a warm welcome with a home-made cake waiting for us. The cottage was perfect for our three generational family. The kitchen is incredibly well equipped so, great for self-catering. We were blessed with very good weather and able to eat out in the garden every day. The cottage is well placed for local visits (Cleeve Abbey was a favouriteRead more) as well as further afield (Lynmouth & Lynton via Exmoor was lovely). Our week was a good mixture of relaxing at the cottage and trips out. Thank you Hide

We were welcomed with a lovely homemade cake and milk in the fridge. The location is quiet. The barn is spacious, the beds are comfortable and the owners friendly. It was nice to be able to eat outside on sunny evenings.
