Great Location and lovely cottage
Booked a long weekend for Dunster by Candlelight in December. Extremely well equipped and welcoming cottage and a lovely base to explore the area, highly recommend.
This is a really good place to stay
On arrival we found a tray laid ready for a cup of tea,and cakes and a bottle of red wine for later. Lovely charming cottage warm and cosy.
Fantastic cottage, bigger than expected. Everything we could have needed and in brilliant location. Would definitely stay again and recommend it. One issue is shower, lacks power and spray coverage.
Such a lovely cottage
We had a 3 night stay here recently and found everything we needed in this lovely cottage. It was very spacious with all the facilities we could wish for. It is a lovely cosy and well looked after property and we were so pleased to stay there.We stay in Dunster each year and hopefully will be able to stay in this home from home next time .
Quaint cottage well equiped and located.
A very comfortable and enjoyable stay in a beautiful setting.
The pictures don't really do it justice.
We had a lovely time in Dunster. It is probably the friendliest place we have ever stayed. In particular, the locals and staff of the Forrester's Arms and Stags Head went out of their way to make us feel welcome (Two quite contrasting pubs but both worth a visit).
The cottage was great. As the title states the pictures do not really do it justice. It was clean, comfortable and a rather unusual mix of modern and traditional. The Wifi was excellent and although we didn't use the log burner, imagine it is wonderful in the colder months. Parking was a pain, but if you have read all of the other reviews this will not be news. Thanks for having us and we look forward to a return visit (if you will have us!)
