    On arrival the cottage was freezing cold and smelt damp. Annoying that the electricity was metered and towels not provided. Feel they should have been included for what we paid. The cottage warmed up during our stay so did feel cosy then. The furnishings and decor were very tasteful but the TV was minuscule and we came across slugs in the kitchen a couple of times. The location is pretty but would be far nicer in summer. Despite the garden being dog-proof, our terrier managed to jump the fence and escape! The jacuzzi was lovely but unfortunately we hardly got to use it due to the rain. Was a little disappointed that the owners did not pop in with a bottle to wish us Happy New Year.

    Can't say anything but amazing things about Shortcombe Cottage!! The location was perfect, about 10 minutes from illfacombe, but it was completely secluded and private. The owners live next door, but the high walls, and garden hedges make you feel like you're completely isolated. Value for money, the cottage was brilliant, by far the cheapest cottage I found for a long weekend with everything we wanted, including the homely little extras of the hot-tub and log burner. The owners worked completely around us and when we could arrive, and communication with them was so convenient. The cottage was so clean when we arrived, and we could just unpack and relax straight away! We have recommended the cottage to a number of our friends already, and we will definitely be returning!

    Nice little cottage but not very homely. Unfortunate smell of dogs. No hot water in the bathroom sink or the kitchen sink as mentioned in previous reviews so had to boil kettles. Mirror light did not work in the bathroom and the shower was just ok. The sofas were uncomfortable. The hot tub was lovely but needs to be under some sort of shelter to keep towels dry when it's raining. Gravel parking was a bit of a problem and a sensor light would be advisable as it was pitch black in the evening. Tv was small and the signal kept disappearing. If all these little problems were sorted it would be a lovely, lovely cottage but we still enjoyed it.

    Beautiful setting. Long drive from main B road (narrow lanes). No nearby dog walks (off lead) due to farming livestock. Recommend that a dishwasher and Wi Fi would have made a big difference to our mixed age group party. Enjoyed hot tub in enclosed private garden. Owner helpful.

    Beautiful little place everything was so clean. We even had tea and cake waiting for us when we got there, and the Hot tub was an added bonus! Would definitely recommend to anyone!
