Our third visit to Arden Cottage. Very relaxing and enjoyable as always, with easy access to Exmoor, the Quantocks, the coast and the West Somerset Railway. Special thanks for showing us a nice local walk and use of your welding goggles for the solar eclipse. Accomodation very comfortable and excellent breakfasts to set us up for the day. Thank you...

It was good to see you both again as well as 'laid back' Dewi. We were very lucky to have the additional excitement of the Solar Eclipse during your stay and to enjoy the walk up onto the hills to get a better view from the welding goggles (not ideal we know, but better than nothing when used sensibly).

We finally managed to return to Somerset 18 months after our first visit - and had an equally delightful stay. Jane and Paul welcomed us as old friends, and the dogs immediately remembered their previous happy holiday with much wagging of tails! Breakfast and accommodation excellent as before, weather very good, definitely a stress-free relaxing 3 night stay. We found... More

Jane and Paul gave me the most wonderful Christmas bolt hole, and are very special people. I've been to a number of dog friendly b and bs, many of which are in reality only 'dog tolerant'. At Arden Cottage, Betty was welcomed with treats and a chewy bone, personally shown the best local walks, given tasty scraps left over from... More

Stayed at Arden Cottage with friends from 23rd to 25th October 2014. You can see from the photograph the sort of charming thatched cottage it is.
