The light and spacious, open-plan lounge/diner features a cosy wood burner and Smart TV, so you can relax in the evening and enjoy your favourite programmes. From here there are also French doors that lead to the raised decking, where you can let the outside in on sunny days and enjoy the views. Leading from either the hallway or the lounge/diner you enter the well-equipped kitchen with electric Rangemaster oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine, a great space to prepare a meal. Back to the hallway you will find the two bedrooms, a king-size bedroom which enjoys countryside views and a twin. Completing the property is a contemporary bathroom with a shower over bath and WC.

We had a lovely stay at this property. The garden was brilliant for the dogs and the views were beautiful. Very handy having a path right next to the house to walk the dogs. We had an issue with the hot water during our stay but this problem was incredibly swiftly resolved for us which was great. We thoroughly enjoyed visits to Lynmouth, Tarr StepsRead more, Watersmeet & Woolacombe. We had two lovely meals at The Whitehorse in Exton (dog friendly). The house was very comfortable, clean and well equipped. Hide

The cottage was well equipped and comfortable with a garden area and raised decking to sit on in the sunny evenings. There was good access to Dunster, Minehead and other villages around and many walks nearby. The access was down an unmade up road and turning a large vehicle round at the cottage was tricky. There were many available programmes on thRead moree TV but finding live stations was problematic, perhaps because the system had only been installed the day before we arrived. Hide

This is a beautiful property in a secluded area but also close to all of the wonderful sights on offer. We had an amazing time, myself and my two dogs, on our first holiday away together.

Lovely stay for four adults and a dog. Spacious and well set out holiday cottage. Small scare when dog shot through hole at end of garden but probably our fault for not noticing. House in very tranquil location and had the benefit of a lovely fire. Location quiet but easy enough to get to historic sites and beaches.

Zephyrs is a very peaceful, tucked away cottage and provided us with a good touring base for the local area. The enclosed garden was ideal for our dog and the outdoor terrace area was lovely on a sunny afternoon. Owners were very helpful and friendly, we had an issue with the modem on day one which they sorted out immediately. Would recommend.
