Many issues with cottage.
Shabby and outdated. Shower fittings missing from master bathroom meaning not possible to have a shower. Ground floor shower is in a WC and doors do not close allowing water to leak all over the WC floor. No extractor hood or fan over cooker so when cooking all steam from cooking fills kitchen and dining room. Top floor bedroom had insect infestation from hundreds of flies behind window blinds. Opened the blinds, insects filled the room. Stable block next to cottage that houses trail hounds that howl at night and keep you awake. We left the cottage three days early due to insects and no shower available. We read the visitors book whilst there, if only we could have read it before. Very poor indeed.

Lovely cottage
Beautiful setting, very comfortable, well equipped and warm. Access is via very steep and narrow lanes, so not for nervous drivers- but for me it's what makes it perfect as it means it is so quiet and peaceful!

Perfect Hideaway
We arrived to find the Cottage warm and welcoming on a cold January day. My husband & I stayed for a week, while friends came down for a couple of days. The cottage had everything you required from the lovely hot water, to all the cooking utensils and facilities you needed throughout the cottage ( A true home from home). Tarr Steps was only a few yards away, along with plenty of good walking from the doorstep. The cottage and facilities were all Perfect. Thank you.

Total escape
I booked this house for seven of us as a relaxing family break and it was the perfect spot, plenty of sapce downstairs, all open plan so no one ever felt cut off. The bedrooms were lovely, clean and spacious and very comfy, the two at the top were great for the kids but did get very warm. There are plenty of bathrooms and towels are provided and the facilities were great, dishwasher, washer and dryer so if you get muddy days you can just bung the lot in.The area is very beautiful but very remote, make sure to take all supplies with you because there are no shops in walking distance and the roads are mostly one car width so not good for nervous drivers. We spent a good amount of time in the Tarr Farm in across the river, a five minute walk from the house, excellent food and cream tea, the beer and cider went down very well. We made a few trips out including a road trip to Stonehenge and Glastonbury, two hours to Stonehenge but our fabourite was Dunster, a thirty/forty minute trip to the coast. The town itself is very pretty but the castle was a highlight. The only complaint would be that there was no welcome pack in the house when we arrived, I wouldn't expect champagne and caviar but a bottle of milk and a little loaf would have been nice. We do tend to pack for an apocolypse when we go but we didn't take sugar with us because I've never stayed anywhere where the basics weren't already in place but there was nothing in the cupboards except salt and a few tea bags so go prepared. All in all a lovely house and an exceptional place, we loved Exmoor.
