Extremely well presented holiday cottage for family and pets.

5 of 5
We had a really enjoyable time at No. 2 Warmore Cottage, Dulverton. Everything we needed was available and extremely accommodating for our dog, Pepper. The beds were very comfortable and the cottage was lovely and warm. We visited many delightful villages and explored interesting rivers and harbours. Even the weather was good and dry.

Everything we expected and more

4 of 5
We had relied on a previous recent reviewer for confidence in booking and we loved this cottage. It was everything we expected and more. Warm, cosy, incredibly clean and tidy. Great central location, good little shop at local garage 200 metres away and good pub in short walking distance - uphill there so downhill back! Fab to walk our dogs in safety in grounds early morning and evening and Alex and Annie warm and friendly hosts. The Internet was absolutely fine on our phones but my old laptop wouldn't connect so just be aware. Alex did say he has plans to improve the signal to the cottage. Not that we wanted it but I think there was only one tv Chanel. We rarely go to the same location twice but we would certainly consider visiting Lapford Mill again if Alex and Annie will have us! A big thank you to them.
