It's already been said - Home from home - so true. We enjoyed our visit from the warm welcome by Verity on arrival to the warmth of The Minehead bell ringers at St. Michael's church on our final day, what an experience. So much to see in the area, the beautiful views from the cottage and the breathtaking drive around Exmoor. Thanks again Verity and also for the generous welcome pack. We hope to return one day.

The cottage is a little jewel, beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean, we took our shoes off to enjoy the underfloor heating. Plenty of hot water and lovely and cosy, it is small but perfect.
