The cottage is beautiful, very relaxing, the decor lovely , the bed is SO comfy and the underfloor heating was"toasty". We enjoyed walks over the Gallox bridge and through the forest, trips to Porlock and enjoyed meals at the Watermill cafe in Dunster. We also cooked some meals at the cottage and found that the kitchen had everything we needed. Can't wait to return. Carol and. John.
