    Stayed here for new year as a party of 6 adults and 4 children. Communication with owners was great and there was a lovely welcome pack on arrival. The house is well equipped and comfortable. We felt instantly relaxed. The children loved exploring all of the nooks, particularly the top floor where the games room is. There were loads of games, toys and books. The views are stunning from and around the house. The owners provided laminated cards with suggested walks of various lengths which we appreciated. It is a great house with plenty of space to enjoy quieter moments alone and also come together and party. It was a short drive to Minehead which has plenty of amenities. Perfect for large/extended family.

    Cottage was very spacious for eight of us. Only comment would be there are only two showers, if the large upstairs bathroom was split in two to give an extra shower room it would be better for sleeping up to twelve. Otherwise couldn't fault the place, great for a mixed age family group

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your feedback. Since your stay during September 2018, a third bathroom has been installed on the ground floor. The property description will be updated to include this addition (January 2019).

    A fantastic house with lots of 'roomy rooms' as well as a games room and a beautiful garden. Tucked away with access via small country roads so very peaceful and quiet. A beautiful setting.

    We had a fantastic long weekend for a 90th birthday celebration. Eleven family members accommodated comfortably with plenty of room for all. Extremely well equipped with nothing extra required. Super location with great views. Breakfast on the veranda a highlight. Lots to visit in the local area.
