    Spot on. Great location, spaceous for the three of us and our dog, well equipped and very clean. Downstairs bedroom and bathroom was just what was needed for our elderly mum. Good decor in pristine condition, strong WiFi - top marks! Will definitely stay there again.

    The Mill was great and in a lovely position beside Dunster House perfect for long walks. Kids will love it the playroom is very well equipped (even our big boys spent time in there) also play park and football field just around the corner, walk past the play park onto Exmoor we saw two herds of deer. Magical weekend away.

    Fabulous location in Dunster-didn’t need to move the cars the whole weekend! Very well equipped all round, and very clean. Games room could do with modernising, and maybe a stair gate, as stairs were a little on the slippy side for our toddlers..... Apart from that, a brilliant weekend and would stay again!!

    Lovely homely and spacious cottage in a fantastic quiet location very near to Dunster high street. The little touches and ornaments gave the cottage a lot of character too. Liked the comfortable living area, conservatory and garden. Games room was handy for our teenager and the dart board was a nice suprise. Very happy how safe it was for our little dog. Gallox bridge and a nice playground were just down the road. Would like to come back in the summer, definately. Would benefit from smart tv's and the beds in the downstairs bedrooms were a little uncomfy but slept alright so can't really complain.

    Had a fantastic three nights at this charming cottage for my birthday at the beginning of February. Online pictures don't do it justice. Such a lovely characteristic, warm and cosy cottage with everything supplied for a comfortable stay. Carolyn, our host was so kind and accommodating. Only downside - had to keep dog on lead as garden isn't fully enclosed. Dunster village is full of atmosphere, had some great meals in the local pubs and all are dog friendly. Our favourite was The Foresters Arms, only two minutes walk from the cottage. Dunster Castle and gardens are absolutely worth a visit. We definitely hope to return to Mill Haven in the future.

    Beautiful accommodation and setting. The family games room a real treat for the grandchildren (and for the adults). Kitchen was well equipped.

    Great holiday cottage, lovely location. Only minor criticism would be the matresses on a couple of the beds were a bit uncomfortable! But it wouldn't put us off visiting again, hopefully will be back in the future.

    Each of our party of 6 adults (ages ranging between 23 & 84) and our little Cavalier King Charles Ruby thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay at Mill Haven. The cottage is situated in a lovely quiet area that was greatly appreciated as where we live in The Midlands it is very noisy. Within the cottage is everything you could possibly need to enjoy your stay. Dunster Castle is right on your doorstep which is well worth a visit or two. Brilliant walks in the nearby village with some quaint little shops. The Stags Head is very welcoming. Minehead, Blue Anchor Bay and Watchet are close by for lovely walks with your canine friends.

    We have stayed at many cottage properties over the last 20 years and this one was unfortunately the most unclean one we have ever stayed at. The downstairs toilet was in a shocking state, there were lot's of cobwebs and dust and the floor like the toilet had urine and traces of faeces on it. The kitchen unit fronts along with a number of doors were also dirty. On arrival we had to spend some time cleaning the property to a reasonable standard which is not something we should have had to do after an 8 hour journey. We showed the photos to the owner the following day when she visited and she was very apologetic. There was also a very busy/noisy National Trust cafe and tea garden next door which we were not aware of beforehand.
