“Fantastic cottage with everything you need. Definitely recommend to everyone!”
Reviewed September 20, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Had a brilliant stay at Damson Cottage!

Had books and toys for the kids in a separate room adjoining to the living room which was great; a highchair and travel cot - exactly what we needed.

There was bags and bags of charm and the location was perfect for a wander into Dunster to all local amenities.

Lovely well proportioned rooms and kitchen filled with everything you need.

Enjoy visitors xxxx

“Beautiful, well equipped cottage in excellent location.”
Reviewed April 12, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Lovely cottage, very well equipped and spotlessly clean. It is in a beautiful location, Plenty of eating places in village so no need to drive if you don't want to. Wish we could have stayed longer. Would definitely recommend it.

“Clean, Comfortable, Cozy, Full of Character!”
Reviewed October 9, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We spent 3 days in this beautiful old cottage in Dunster. I couldn't get over how a very old cottage full of such character could be so warm, cozy and clean! Far larger than expected too. Not a spider's web even! Modern kitchen and bathrooms, comfy beds, posh bed linen etc and the most glorious garden. For future visitors, young and old - try to find the pig in the garden!

Many thanks for your review, we are so glad you had a great time as we love it in Dunster.
(Pleased that you didn't spot cobwebs as we certainly can't guarantee it is always that way, with it being such an old cottage, it does have a few nooks and crannies!)

“Comfortable, well-equiped cottage in fine location.”
Reviewed August 29, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Good sized cottage for my family (husband, myself and two children, 8 &11 years). Well equiped kitchen, tv facilities, and plenty of hot water. Cottage had a "nice," feel to it, with good quality furnishings.
Parking was a bit difficult, but this was probably due to the fact that we travelled in high holiday season, and the cottage is situated in a central location in Dunster.

“Super stay at this lovely old cottage”

people found this review helpful

Just returned from a long weekend stay at Damson Cottage, ideal location for exploring Dunster and Exmoor. This cottage was perfect, such character being an old cottage yet has all modern amenities. Although our stay was one of the coldest weekends the wood burner was a welcome feature, plus very efficient heating and boiler. The owner has provided all necessary items, down to sewing kit and plasters!!. Lots of board games, books for both adults and children. A well equipped kitchen if self catering or if you prefer to eat out, the Stagshead pub is only a few doors down from this property, which serve lovely meals and welcome dogs, providing you give them prior notice. Hope to return again to this lovely cottage.
