Simply the best cottage in the Exmoors.

5 of 5
Little Haven is simply the best. On arrival the cottage was as clean as a new pin. The welcome pack was second to none including new top quality herbs, sauces, coffee, tea, milk, dishwasher tabs etc etc. All the lights had been checked and the kitchen appliances worked well. A lovely greeting from both the owners and the next door neighbour made it a perfect introduction. Walking distance to buses and local amenities make the location ideal alongside off road parking. Having stayed in top specked cottages for many years, Little Haven is the best we have found in the Exmoors and arguably in the UK. The owners should be proud of their achievements and we will be returning regularly in the future.

Even better than the photos and description!

Very well situated cottage in the heart of Dunster. Quiet, comfortable, we parked outside no problems, and lots of information on walks etc. The welcome pack and quality of the bed linen stood out for us, as did the underfloor heating! We will return!
