A modern clean cottage not far from Bampton.

  • 5 out of 5
The cottage was easy to find by following the instructions provided by Veronica. Upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness and how modern the cottage was. Veronica also provided us with freshly baked bread, milk, butter, eggs, tea and coffee which we both thought was a nice touch. We even asked for more eggs and bread later in the week as they were so nice! Veronica and Grant were really nice people who left us alone to enjoy our holiday but if needed were only a short walk away to answer any questions we had. This cottage has to be the best we have stayed in over the past couple of years since we have been holidaying in the UK. The underfloor heating was excellent together with the constant hot water.
Although the cottage accepted dogs, there was no evidence of any hair or dog smell whatsoever. Keep up the good work, we'll return soon I'm sure.

an excellent place to relax and explore Exmoor

  • 5 out of 5
My fourteen year old son and I spent a wonderful week in the Cottage. It excelled all our expectations as to cleanness, equipment and maintenance. We were most cordially welcomed by the proprietor and provided with a basic stock of food and drink for the first day. Friendly advice was given whenever wanted but never imposed on us. So we felt highly comfortable and at home from the very first moment. The cottage is ideally situated for day trips into Exmoor, to places of interest along the South Coast and the Bristol Channel. For those holiday makers seeking the tranquility of the countryside it offers a perfect spot to relax. We highly recommend the cottage without any restrictions and would love to spend another holiday there some time. Thank you ever so much to Veronica and Grant!

Is one of the hidden holiday gems of Devon

  • 5 out of 5
As Australian tourists we found our stay perfect in every way. The cottage was very private, spotless and with all inclusions, even some goodies were included to make our arrival just that little more welcoming. We found the area central to all our needs, Walks, coastal trips as well easy access to other Counties, villages and towns. The local village of Bampton provided all our needed provisions as well as the local pub 'The Swan". It was a great port of call for a meal including a good selection of beverages. Finally, Veronica our host certainly made us feel at home during our weeks stay . Would highly recommend as a holiday destination.

Can't Top The View

Can't Top The View

Lovely area and setting, both on the smallholding itself and in surrounding sites. Easily explored Knightshayes, Watersmeet, Exmoor National Park, Tarr Steps, Stourhead, and even Stonehenge from this base.

The unit is exactly as pictured, and was clean and functional. The bedroom upstairs is practically in the treetops, and we were greeted with birdsong every morning. On our first evening there, we went for a walk in the woods and encountered a fox as we enjoyed the blooming wildflowers.

Also, Veronica kindly brought in a few items so we didn't have to hit the grocery store immediately. Would definitely recommend this cottage!

Wonderful Holiday Cottage

  • 5 out of 5
This is a beautifully converted cottage, done very stylishly but cosy whilst still spacious. Wonderful walks literally on your doorstep and very close for lovely walks on Exmoor. Our Golden Retriever Barnaby was made very welcome and loved the stream in the grounds. If like us you look at hundreds of sites to find your accommodation there is no need to look any further than Stone Quarry Cottage.

Wonderful Wonham

  • 5 out of 5
Verinica and Grant have created a little haven of tranquility and comfort. We enjoyed the cottage which was well presented, comfortable and very clean. The level of equipment and attention to detail is very good.

Our two dogs enjoyed the extensive woodland that they were able to wander around.

All in all a wonderful 2 weeks in a beautiful part of the world. Highly recommend.

The Exe Valley / Exmoor is an ideal location for both touring and exploring the local area. The North Devon Coast is just 40 min away with stunning Saunton Sands & Woolacombe. The South Coast with Exmouth & Seaton is only 45 min too.

The area surrounding the cottage boasts several National Trust properties, RHS Rosemoor and an array of wonderful gardens. For those who like to be more active there are several places to fish and cycle.

There are plenty of options for walking both close to the cottage and on Exmoor which is just 10 min drive. To the North the Quantocks has wonderful walks too including the Coleridge Way. The picturesque towns of Dulverton and Bampton are close by offering a range of places to eat and shop and host various annual events. There is plenty to do or you can just relax in your garden on the edge of our woodland. Enjoy.
