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

It was cozy, well furnished and an amazing garden and patio. We have spent Christmases in Minehead for the last 5 Years, this year was one of the best we have had. We cannot wait to return in June to the CROSS for a weeks Stay. Many Thanks to Verity and Family for the use of the cottage . The Cross is to be commended. I would recommend it to anyone.

I would describe it as "small but perfectly formed". We had a wonderful break. A bottle of champagne greeted us - maybe because it was New Years Eve whilst we were there. The cottage had all the essentials for a relaxing break and is in the perfect location for exploring the wonderful beaches nearby. We took two dogs and the owners were happy to accommodate them. We had dinner in the village pub twice and found it really welcoming. The food was tasty and good value. We would definitely come back again.
