    Although the cottage seemed a little run down at first, it grew on us very quickly. A real home from home, with everything we needed. Warm and snuggly for Christmas / New Year break. Although the house was on a road, the valley was quiet and beautiful. We saw dear and pheasants from the windows. Lovely walks from just across the road - into Winsford in one direction, as towards Exford in the other. Location really good to be able to get pretty much anywhere in Exmoor National Park - from Lynton to Moors.

    A pleasant thirties built cottage in a lovely location. It was a warm and welcoming place for a brief Christmas break. The cottage is adequately equipped and with both central heating and wood burning stoves on demand provides a cosy retreat from the outside when the weather was unfriendly. The housekeeper kindly provided tea, coffee, milk, biscuits etc. and also put up a Christmas tree to make us most welcome. Though not relevant to us, there are clearly some lovely walks direct from the cottage into the Exe valley and beyond. Hope Cottage is good value and well worth a return visit.

    The stunning countryside views from every window make this cottage special. There are no other buildings in sight at all - just beautiful woodland, hillside and garden. Real 'get away from it all'! Our family of 4 were very comfortable and warm and the kitchen and dining room particularly spacious. Very well equipped kitchen. Good shower, good fast wifi. If you're bringing a dog, note that the garden is not enclosed. Though the walks directly from the cottage will make up for this! Little children will need to be supervised at all times outside, due to the steps and raised areas and not being enclosed by a fence etc. The nearby village of Winsford is very picturesque and has a pub and tea room.

    Lovely little cottage in a semi rural location. The only three things that concerned us as a party were; 1) The drive ( which we were warned about) . 2) Although dogs are allowed at the cottage it wasn't stated in the brief that the garden was not fenced off against the road which could be a potential danger. 3) All of us felt the beds were too hard, in particular the double bed.

    Hope cottage is a reasonable price for a getaway break situated in a quiet rural location. We loved the warm cosy cottage and area it is situated and would book another week there in the future.

    Very homely property, comfortable and clean. All equipment available that we needed. Lovely and warm which we were thankful for as night temperatures dropped below zero. Lovely views, easy access to open moor. Reasonably quiet road alongside cottage. Driveway quite steep and narrow with no turning area, care needs to be taken leaving drive as near to bend in the road. Winsford a lovely village although limited facilities. Great location for exploring Exmoor villages.
