The property had everything you could need and the two woodburners made our winter break very cosy. The owners were extremely pleasant and helpful. Would definitely like to return in the future.

The standard of everything was excellent and we really appreciated the welcome basket on our arrival. The view over the sea is stunning and the location couldn't be better. Shops and supermarkets are minutes walk away and after a long walk it was great to return to a warm, cosy place. We have stayed in the area before and there is lots to see and do. It was good to walk to Hunter's Inn and Watersmeet and there many other possibilities to walk locally and farther afield. We had a good day at Arlington court - friendly helpful guides. We visited Dunster Castle, which offered a lot to see and the village is very attractive with good tea rooms and shops. Lynton has several great restaurants. We liked the Vanilla Pod and the Oak room. We would also recommend the Rockford Inn - excellent food and a range of good beers. The flat's kitchen was nice to prepare a meal in, too - lovely quality pans etc. We hope to return.
