The cottage is beautiful, very relaxing, the decor lovely , the bed is SO comfy and the underfloor heating was"toasty". We enjoyed walks over the Gallox bridge and through the forest, trips to Porlock and enjoyed meals at the Watermill cafe in Dunster. We also cooked some meals at the cottage and found that the kitchen had everything we needed. Can't wait to return. Carol and. John.

The house is in a brilliant location which was quite and in the well kept grounds and play area there was plenty of time to have fun. The house also includes some lovely bedrooms especially the children's jungle room. All other bedrooms are a good size and very comfortable. With good size separate dining, living and drawing rooms you would not get the claustrophobic feeling at all. The house definitely contributed to some fantastic memories that all members of our family will take away with them and retain forever. Thank you again Richard & Tracey
