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!)
An excellently provided, comfortable cottage with care taken for the needs of the guests.
This cottage is excellently located on the edge of Exmore within a pretty village. The cottage is well provided for a relaxing holiday. A comfortable bed ensures a good night's sleep. Lots of facilities - TV, CD player, etc - and we were welcoming by tea, coffee, and a bottle of wine: what more could one ask for? We would recommend this cottage unreservedly.
Thank you very much for your lovely review and we hope to welcome you again at Castle Rest in the near future.
Castle Rest review
We had a most enjoyable stay in Castle Rest. The cottage is cosy and clean with lots of homely and thoughtful touches so that it felt l like a home from home.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it and would love to say there again.
Lots of happy memories.
Thank you Steve and Sam Conway
Prettty Old Cottage
We stayed at Chapel Rest for a week. First impressions were warm and welcoming there is an abundance of blue and white china and lots of quirky bits and pieces. The cottage was much larger than it looked from outside and had been cleverly altered to add a light dining space and an upstairs balcony and was extremely well equipped .We enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. The only downside was the parking but we were always able to find a space within easy walking distance it shouldn't put anyone off staying here.
Nice spacious cottage, well equipped and nice and clean.
