The cottage is beautifully decorated and has a real home from home feel about it. Fresh flowers and a home made cake was a lovely touch to be greeted with. We will certainly be returning to this little gem of a cottage.

Really friendly people and luxurious accommodation. High quality furnishings and amazingly warm, even without the gorgeous wood burner on the go! Lovely views and so peaceful. On a clear night we went out into garden, it was pitch dark and the stars we could see were amazing, clearest I've ever seen the Milky Way Galaxy! I love the fact that in most of the pubs in this area you can sit with your dog, which is great if you're out walking and fancy stopping for a bite to eat or a quick pint! Minehead is worth a trip, and go to the Apple Tree Café (number 1 in Menhead, just look at the cakes) as they LOVE dogs and give them treats and their own blanket to lie on when you go in! I would definitely return to these cottages as they are 5 star quality and you just step out of the front door and you've countryside walks straight away - and I'd love to see the 4 resident dogs again, so friendly!!!

Your welcome is genuine and warm. This was our third visit and the cottage was as magical as our first visit. We feel at home straight away and didnt want to leave. The dogs enjoyed the garden and loved running on the beach. We loved the comfy bed and enjoyed a restful sleep. We will be back in 2017.
