An ideal place for a cottage holiday, particularly when with a dog. Quiet, and comfortable, lots of walking on Exmoor, and many lovely places within driving distance. (and many places say "welcome dogs")

Stags View is tucked away in a beautiful valley and in the evenings the vista is cast in a magical light that can be enjoyed from the sheltered seating in the private garden. When it is time to venture inside you will find the whole attractively presented and spotlessly clean. Everything you need is provided and the owners are friendly and helpful Read morewithout being the least bit intrusive. Dunkery Beacon is close by and being the highest point on Exmoor provides wonderful walking and views. Hide
