The Cottage as always was spotless thanks to Verity. We always look forward to the Welcome basket ... mince pies and luxury snacks were very welcome after an epic journey. We love Friday evenings as the Church bell ringers practise their peels. A festive shopping night with nibbles and wine at Porlock and a trip to Lynton put us in Christmassy Spirit. We enjoyed a delicious Sunday carvery at The Old Ship Aground ... it snowed!!! The weekend flew all too quickly ... we will be back in 2028. Thank you Verity and may we wish you a very Merry Christmas x

A welcome pack of all the essentials was for arrival. The Owners were very helpful and always contactable although we did not need to.
