Beautiful, comfortable, well laid out cottage but too remote for us. One of our party uses a mobile scooter and a walk out from the cottage was impossible as the lanes were too narrow to risk it so we had to use the car everyday. Some of the crockery was dirty particularly a jug with gravy down the side and the frying pans. Both whisks are rusty.

Great location for Exmoor. Really comfortable cosy cottage with everything you need. So lovely to have a welcoming bottle of wine, biscuits and milk too! Especially after a long drive. Very short drive back up the road for morning dog walking if required.

Nice cottage ,very well equipped,although no washing machine. Quite isolated and nowhere really for the dog to have his morning and evening walk,without having to drive somewhere. Overall more than adequate for what we wanted.
