Delightful cottage. Very comfortable, and attractively furnished. Peaceful and quiet. Pretty garden to sit in. Welcoming and friendly owners. Nice long drive to take dog for early morning walk. Need to be used to driving on lots of narrow lanes to get up onto the moors. Would definitely return. W&R Bristol

The cottage was extremely comfortable and well equipped. It is in an idyllic situation away from any road. There is a long tarmac lane leading to it and is surrounded by fields. There was ample places to walk our dog and after a day out sightseeing we were able to relax in the beautiful enclosed garden. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful throRead moreughout our stay.

Very comfortable cottage, extremely well equipped and immaculately clean. We appreciated the well tended private garden with seating. The owners were available and helpful.

Faultless. Can only recommend this property for comfort and cleanliness. Any potential occupiers need to be aware that access is down some narrow roads, but if you know Exmoor you know what to expect. Great location for walking holiday.

Beautiful roomy cottage in a lovely peaceful location, out of the way down a private road but close enough to Dulverton. We booked an online shop with Tesco for delivery and had no problems with them finding the place. Mobile signal is patchy but if you go outside towards the horse barn then a good signal can be had. wi-fi is strong enough to browsRead moree the internet and send messages but not to stream. Garden is semi private as it also serves as access to Threshers Barn. Lovely friendly ownerss Hide
