Absolute gem!

By maryc940 on 27-Jul-2021

We enjoyed a wonderful week in Gardeners Cottage which is set in the most peaceful and stunning location. It is spotlessly clean with a well-equipped kitchen, huge bathroom and comfy bed. There is a useful, secure area in the garden for dogs. Absolutely everything has been thoughtfully provided for a perfect holiday and it is a credit to the owners, thankyou

Ideal Stay in Exmoor!

By Jot422016 on 16-May-2021

We loved our stay at the cottage which felt like a home-away-from-home for us and our two small dogs. From the spacious and clean accommodation to the fully equipped kitchen, large bathroom with a fantastic shower, and cosy lounge, it was the perfect place to unwind, enjoy far-reaching views and listen to birdsong. Truly a hideaway off the beaten track, the cottage offers a number of wonderful walks right from the doorstep as well as beautiful places to explore in the vicinity, such as Lynmouth and Woolecombe beach. We can’t wait to return to the area and stay at James and Alan’s cottage again.
