It was very well equipped and had everything we needed. We especially appreciated the thoughtful 'welcome' provisions; a delicious home-made cake and basics like milk and bread. The location was great, just a short walk to the high street where we found interesting shops and a wide choice of pubs and cafes. We especially liked the deli, which had lots of delicious, locally sourced produce and real ales to buy to take home. We could have been totally self-sufficient in the village, but there were also plenty of large supermarkets a short drive away. Great for the dogs too, as there were lots of walks right from the doorstep. As the cottage was so warm and cosy we thought it would be a great place to stay over Christmas or in the Winter, and we would definitely like to return one day.

Hearty eating, Aga roasts, big breakfasts and plenty of celebratory drinks. The house was large enough for everyone to have space but also to gather all in one room for meals. The grounds are interesting and the location is close to the sea and countryside, with the heart of Exmoor a short drive away. Tracy made it easy and we wanted for nothing. It is an excellent hose for a big gathering.

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 :)
