Spotlessly clean. Appreciated having the eggs and milk on arrival. Lovely quiet location. Plenty of logs for the fire. It was a rainy week so spent more time in our little cottage than expected - but felt right at home. The WIFI was excellent xx

A delightful conversion of an old stone cow shed I believe, with exposed beams and original exposed stone pillars set in beautifully maintained grounds with a large duck pond. It was our second visit to this group of properties and we have earmarked the third property in the group for our next holiday.

Lovely clean, cosy cottage. Local pub about a mile down the road. Short drive to the beach. The cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Only negative is that the pillows are very uncomfortable so might be worth taking your own.

The properties are a good barn conversion and look lovely. Unfortunately the interior has a really musty smell that clings to everything. The sofa could do with updating as it doesnt have enough support to be comfortable and the bed mattress is too hard.

The Linhay was a lovely cottage, perfect for two and a dog. Remote location with a pub roughly half a mile up the road but this was great, and the nearest town Watchet was about 4 miles away with Dunster and Minehead not much further. Plenty to do, lots of walking routes and the beaches were perfect for morning walks with the dog.
