Just heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 6 days to get away and relax. This was our second time - first stayed in February and loved it so much we had to come back. We have now stayed in both cottages and can honestly that both cottages are just so cosy, warm and comfortable.

James and Erica make you feel so at home and the welcome pack is a lovely touch.

All in all it is a wonderfully peaceful place surrounded by woodland and great places to visit nearby.

Great way to cut off from the world

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at James' Exmoor cottage for a week, to cut myself off from the world and work on a new project. It was the ideal place to do this, as the surroundings are incredibly quiet and you really do feel you are in a remote corner of the country.

The property itself has the feeling of a studio apartment, with everything on the ground floor with the exception of the bedroom upstairs. I loved this setup, as it meant I could spend the day working in the main part of the cottage, and then go up to bed, leaving my work behind. I spent 6 nights in the cottage and have not slept better in quite some time.

The cottage has everything you need - very good wifi to avoid problems of lack of phone signal, a lovely bath, living room area and spacious kitchen. James was a great host, at the end of an email if I needed anything.

Seeing as I was there to work, I'm afraid I didn't do much exploring of the local area, but the cottage itself I can thoroughly recommend.

The Exe Valley / Exmoor is an ideal location for both touring and exploring the local area. The North Devon Coast is just 40 min away with stunning Saunton Sands & Woolacombe. The South Coast with Exmouth & Seaton is only 45 min too.

The area surrounding the cottage boasts several National Trust properties, RHS Rosemoor and an array of wonderful gardens. For those who like to be more active there are several places to fish and cycle.

There are plenty of options for walking both close to the cottage and on Exmoor which is just 10 min drive. To the North the Quantocks has wonderful walks too including the Coleridge Way. The picturesque towns of Dulverton and Bampton are close by offering a range of places to eat and shop and host various annual events. There is plenty to do or you can just relax in your garden on the edge of our woodland.
