Lovely Cottage in a Lovely Location

5 of 5
This is a lovely cottage - very homely and welcoming - very well equipped to a high standard and very clean. Lots of basics were supplied and a bottle of wine, packet of cookies and orange blossom in a wee vase waiting for us on the kitchen table. A lovely quiet village but within easy driving distance of Dunster and Minehead.
