Clean and cosy cottage with everything we needed when we got there, especially the bottle of wine. Beautiful views of the hills from our bedroom window, would love to come back perhaps next year as a week was not enough

The Saddlery is situated perfectly for trips to the coast and inland into Exmoor. The cottage has a fine kitchen, very comfortable beds and a relaxing front room. Recommended unreservedly!

This cottage was just what we were looking for: quiet location in a cosy village, nearby walks on the moors and attractions like Dunster Castle, comfortable for spending an evening at the cottage. Friendly and helpful host!

Upon arrival we were thrilled with the Barn, the only negative was the windows needed cleaning. The Owners were very generous leaving us milk, wine and even Easter Eggs, a lovely touch. Unfortunately I suffered back problems as the week went on and the Kingsize bed I slept in really aggravated it, so I was in pain and couldn't go out much. We did cRead moreall the Owner out as there was a problem with the Hot water tank and He came out and was very helpful and offered to get someone the next day. Hide

We stayed at the cottage in February and were able to make use of the excellent wood burning stove. The central location close to Dunster was perfect for a superb break.
