“Perfect retreat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2010

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay in Smiddy couldnt fault it. Comfortable bed, clean and well equipped. Wonderful setting with plenty of good walks from the cottage. Our young border collie had a great time. The walk through the woods was most enjoyable looking out for the deer and other wildlife. Peter and Irene where great hosts very helpful The cream tea on arrival was delicious the fresh flowers added a nice touch and Peters info on the area was very helpful. We hadnt been to Exmoor before but we will certainly go back in the near future and stay at West Holowcombe.

Fantastic week can not recommend it highly enough. Having travelled through stunning Exmoor landscapes (glad we had taken our hosts advice and taken the detour avoiding the 1/3 hills with a horse box), we were greeted warmly by Irene and Peter and by a delicious cream tea waiting for us in Jasper.
Ponies were equally glad of the snug stables and great Bridleways near by.
The cottage was appointed to the highest standard throughout , with the beautiful weather as a bonus, we were sorry to leave, who could ask for more. It would be lovely to return.

We had a wonderful relaxing holiday in Smiddy - the cream tea on arrival was delicious. Scenery and walks fantastic. Further away from the shops than we are used to but that was all part of the charm. Children had a lovely time in the play area and on the bikes and ride-ons, they also made friends with the children in the adjoining cottages. Peter and Irene are wonderful hosts and were always around with ideas for places to see and local eating houses. We will be back again I am sure.

From the first moment we arrived being greeted by Peter and Irene (and of course the very welcome cream tea!) our holiday was the best one we have had in a number of years. The cottage was extremely comfortable and nicely presented. The area is very scenic. The information about the area given by Peter was most helpful. We hope to stay again next yeat.

West Hollowcombe Farm is just such a fantastic place to stay especially if you have a young family! Peter and Irene were extremely friendly and welcoming and would do anything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Our son loved playing on the ride on cars and tractors and especially loved the lambs and chickens. The cottage (Jasper) was exceptionally clean and very well equipped. We had a cot and high chair provided and a stair gate too - excellent facilities and a fantastic large living area which our son loved exploring! The log burner kept my husband very busy and entertained (!) (boys toys) and made the cottage so warm and cozy. We will definitely be back!

We have been coming to West Wollowcombe every Easter Holidays since 2002, staying in Norton, Kiri & Jasper, sometimes bringing ponies for the children, sometimes just as one family, but more often with friends taking other cottages. Peter and Irene are not only wonderfully warm & welcoming, but also incredibly helpful over things practical & local information.
West Hollowcombe, for me the most magical place; possibly a slight time warp & without a lot of the detritus of modern day life such as noise & light pollution, motorway signs on unclassified roads.

West Hollowcombe is becoming an annual event which the whole family want to continue ~ need I say more!

We thoroughly recommend West Hollowcombe as a place to stay in the middle of Exmoor. The accommodation is clean, comfortable and charming with lovely views and peaceful surroundings. Walks are beautiful straight from your front door and the welcome pack of Devonshire Cream Tea scrumptious! Our hosts, Peter and Irene could not have done more for us, lighting our wood burner while we were out to ensure a warm and toasty return. We bottle fed the lambs, fed chickens and generally had an excellent time. The only sad thing was that we had to come home but we hope to return as soon as possible. Andy, Debbie, Pete and Louise wish Peter and Irene a very successful season and thank them most warmly for making our stay so wonderful.
