Beautiful, well decorated, ideally located cottage!

5 of 5
Just a short walk from the town centre, beach and beautiful countryside this was an ideal cottage for two and a small dog. Could easily fit a family of up to four too. Lots of lovely touches to the cottage and a real place for respite! We loved our stay and found Verity welcoming and friendly. Would happily re commend to anyone :)

We had a lovely short stay in Mortehoe but enjoyed every minute. Perfect house and location for us and our two young children. We'll certainly be back

I will definitely return to this property absolutely ideal for a restful break lovely and peaceful but only a few minutes to Dunster by car and only 10 minutes to Minehead the owners are perfectly lovely! Booked this for a valentine break only to find the decor was a romantic red theme! Perfect!
