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.

While the weather might not have been perfect, the cottage was - with everything that we needed to make our stay easy and relaxing. A roaring wood burner made the sitting room very cosy and the kitchen had a full compliment of necessities (sharp knives, pans, trays, colander, etc). We found lots to do, exploring the locale; Dunster, Minehead, Blue Anchor, Porlock and Porlock Vale are only a short drive away and there are walks from outside the front door of the cottage. Our son also appreciated the great games and toys that were available, which meant that us parents could sit back and relax! A perfect break, thank you Becky.
