    The setting and scenery was beautiful. The cottage was compact as expected and the hosts very welcoming and friendly. It was a very relaxing break but felt the cottage could have been cleaner.

    Had a great time, loved the location & there are many nice walks locally. Loads of info in the cottage on the area, including the walking. Liked being on a working farm, watching the world go by is very different here, the owners were friendly & very helpful when I needed it. It would be somewhere I would go again, it would benefit from WiFi, it was a bit of a shock at first having no access to the internet or phone but it was also a refreshing change so not a deal breaker.

    It was awful we got there and left 2 hours later me and my partner are farmers but have never seen a farm like this before just birds running around everywhere turkeys, guinea fowl, pheasants and more so you can image the mess the birds weren't just in the yard they where everywhere at one point up the stairs right out side the door of the cottage. The cottage was so dirty layers of dust on everything dead flys and a hair in the jug of milk that was in the fridge and so small do not stay the pictures are miss leading and make it look bigger then what it is ive stayed in cavavans bigger and there was the most horrible cover on the sofa I couldn't even sit on it it was that bad. Don't waste your money we didn't even touch anything and didn't get our money back. We looked forward to this holiday so much and we where so disappointed. This review makes me sound really fussy but I'm really not just don't want other people to have this happen to them.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are clearly disappointed with the comments. As accurately advertised, The Mill Retreat is situated on a working farm in the heart of Exmoor so YES there are animals and poultry on the farm and in the farm yard. The property is described as “cosy” sleeping up to 2 people in 1 bedroom and the photos clearly depict the size of the property so that guests are fully aware prior to booking and can then decide if it is suitable for them. We are sorry that in this case the property wasn’t suitable for these guests. This review does not tally with other guests’ experiences, but you can’t please everybody!
