There are fossils and artefacts from the stone and iron age and the place is well worth a visit.

House was immaculate.the flowers,cake,bread,butter and milk was a fabulous surprise. The location is super. Very quiet but only a few minutes walk into Dunster centre. Castle entrance also only a few minutes walk. Our 2 dogs loved the underfloor heating! We were all very cosy and warm. Parking is virtually outside the door.but a word of warning about the beds..they are so comfy you might not want to get up. Best night's sleep ever!! Can't praise this property enough. Best equipt kitchen I have seen! Thank you Keith and Janet for a truly wonderful stay

It was cozy, well furnished and an amazing garden and patio. We have spent Christmases in Minehead for the last 5 Years, this year was one of the best we have had. We cannot wait to return in June to the CROSS for a weeks Stay. Many Thanks to Verity and Family for the use of the cottage . The Cross is to be commended. I would recommend it to anyone.

What a perfect spot for a week away from London - the cottage is modern with three large double en-suite bedrooms and underfloor heating throughout the open plan ground floor area. The owners are so nice and had, unexpectedly, set up a Christmas tree before our arrival plus a welcome pack full of goodies. The house was perfect for our 3 young boys with a large open plan area downstairs, a field outside for playing football and a hot tub (one of the main reasons for choosing this property!). Even in winter the area is stunning, but must be even more amazing any other time of the year. The local pub at the end of the driveway is fantastic serving great food - we ate here a few times and can highly recommend it. There's lots of walks in the local area and within a 45 min drive you can get to either the South or North Devon Coast. There's a lot of great cycling in the area - we rode along the Grand Western Canal from Tiverton Parkway to Tiverton with the kids which is an easy ride for all ages and stunning scenery. It's also within reach of the Cheddar Gorge and Wells (a visit to the cathedral is a must see). The town of Beer on the south coast was also worth a visit. A slightly further day trip to Saunton Sands is worth the effort with its huge sand dunes and probably the highlight of our holiday (apart from the hot tub!). There's lots of good local amenities with the town of Wellington only 10 minutes away - even the petrol station has a large Budgens with everything you need, including a Cook frozen meals fridge, which was handy over the Christmas period. I can highly recommend this house and the local area. Thank you Nick and Deborah for making it a perfect Christmas break for us!
