House was immaculate.the flowers,cake,bread,butter and milk was a fabulous surprise. The location is super. Very quiet but only a few minutes walk into Dunster centre. Castle entrance also only a few minutes walk. Our 2 dogs loved the underfloor heating! We were all very cosy and warm. Parking is virtually outside the door.but a word of warning about the beds..they are so comfy you might not want to get up. Best night's sleep ever!! Can't praise this property enough. Best equipt kitchen I have seen! Thank you Keith and Janet for a truly wonderful stay

The cottage had everything we could have wanted for cooking, had a lovely back garden (it was a shame it was too cold to use it!) and it's right by the beach. There's a delicious cafe and shop just down the road and there are a number of walks you can do right from the doorstep. Ruth was extremely easy to contact and always responded to questions quickly. We couldn't recommend Nanny's Cottage more!
