“A little bit of luxury and a lot of taste and comfort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013 for a stay in June 2013
person found this review helpful

Set in medieval Dunster this cottage is a real find. Having stayed in a number of English decorated apartments you can rest assured that there is no dusty pink, no flounces, no knick-knacks and no traces of grandma’s doilies anywhere. Instead there are luxury terry towelling robes, one large well appointed bedroom with a large bathroom with bath (which, like all English bath shower over baths has the risk of breaking your neck as you step over) while the rest of the apartment is tastefully and professionally fitted out.
A really well thought out kitchen and an even better loungeroom – nothing over the top but nothing has been left out – just check out fully fitted kitchen – right down to scissors, matches and a drawer full of ‘stuff’ that you may need – it’s just like being at home, only better.
As spacious as these small cottages can possibly be, but bright, airy, well heated and good quality throughout. Now add to that a fairly enchanting village with great walks, reasonably pubs and you have it all. Highly recommended.
