Just perfect

5 of 5
This is a wonderful cottage for two. It has everything you need for a relaxing stay. We had every weather you could think of while we were here, so the wood burner was a lovely evening treat. There are some lovely walks on the doorstep, and plenty of beautiful scenery to drive to. Sadly the Red Lion at Oakford has closed, but we had a couple of excellent meals at The Bridge at Dulverton. Thanks to Jane and John, it is a beautiful place to stay.

A hidden gem

5 of 5
We arrived on a very wet and cold Friday night from Torquay, opened the door of the house and were all blown away by the warmth and general good feeling of the place. The lounge/kitchen/dining area are really great with everything you need in them. We all loved the little touches such as Breakfast extras/games/Welcome [pack. The bedrooms/bathrooms were brilliant, very comfortable. All in all we loved it. P S The Bell Inn is in our opinion is the best pub in the country, the food is fantastic, the staff are lovely, we went there every night. If you are looking for somewhere out of town, then this house/Bell inn etc its a great place to relax.
