We booked Bodkin cottage on the strength of the previous review and were not disappointed.
This is a delightful cottage,tastefully furnished with very good quality appliances and equipment. Lovely John Lewis china very pretty linens. As clean and as comfortable as home. Beautiful pastel blue kitchen, stylish sitting room and bedroom with a good mattress!
The over the bath shower was not a problem and it really worked! Everything sparkled
On our arrival we found a tea tray laid out with a delicious cake, milk in the fridge and even dog bowls with dog biscuits and a few 'poo' bags. Fresh flowers in the kitchen and lounge and a full log basket. Every tiny detail had been thought of. The owner even rang to check everything was satisfactory .
There is so much to do in and around Dunster we could not fit in to our long weekend, we did The River Walk, the Bats Castle Circuit and walked to Minehead via Dunster beach and the South West Coastal path, as we've yet to visit the castle and explore Exmore further we will be booking Bodkin Cottage again next year.
All in all a perfect cottage in a perfect location.

“A little bit of luxury and a lot of taste and comfort”

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.
