5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed at Bracken Cottage Riscombe Farm for 10 nights in July 2014. Our hosts were Brian and Leo and the lovely Bracken (dog), welcoming and friendly. Brian suggested places we might like to see during our stay, we did take his advise and where very thankful, we went to Exmoor National Park and were lucky to see the ponies with their young, Tarr Steps, Porlock, Bossington, Martin Combe and surrounding area, Quantock Hills, West Somerset Steam Railways plus more. This was an upside down style cottage. The bedroom was comfortable, the bathroom was large with bath, toilet and wash basin, the shower was next to the bathroom, there was another bedroom with 3 single beds. Upstairs the kitchen was adequate for preparing meals after a long day out, large combined dining room and sitting room, satellite TV, Wi Fi, comfortable lounge suite and heating if required. I enjoyed sitting in the dining room looking out of the window in the morning, watching the swallows and other birds, the sheep... more

If you are looking for a tranquil escape from the bustle of life then Riscombe Farm is just the ticket. Situated a mile or two outside centrally located Exford which boasts a couple of good pubs that serve good value, unpretentious, locally sourced traditional food. There are plenty of outdoor activities within 30-40 minute drive and good for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. The Cottages are clean, dry and very cosy. They have basic Sky TV, free Wi-Fi broadband access and loads of hot water. It is so peaceful there with spectacular night skies, weather permitting!

Brian & Leone are very kind and amiable and will do their best to make you and your pets/horse feel welcome and comfortable.
If you are very lucky Brian may take you on a tour of his new pride and joy the ‘Green’ wood pellet heating and water system that has just been installed! We were there last year and this new system has made everything much more toasty and warm. On both of our visits we found that...
