This is a wonderful cottage in an idyllic location in a beautiful Exmoor valley. Superbly equipped, extraordinarily spacious and comfortable, it can only be described as luxury. Alison is a wonderful host, supportive, not intrusive and providing a raft of small but significant extras rarely found when renting a property. We will be back! Thank you.Read more Hide

On arrival we experienced the "wow" factor when entering the cottage. We were not disappointed as we progressed through the cottage, Everything exceeded our expectations. Exploring the estate was a delight and our host was more than helpful in looking after us. Will definitely visit again.

This cottage is absolutely stunning, it's more than luxury in our opinion, it's five star, it's the best we've ever stayed in, it is spotless and the furnishings and fittings are of a very exceptional high standard throughout - We did not feel that there was anything missing. The owner Alison was on hand 24/7 if you needed her if there was a probleRead morem, not that we encountered one. The extensive grounds that the property is situated within are also wonderful, very private and very secure. Hide
