“Attention to detail was fabulous”
Reviewed April 7, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

This was booked as a birthday treat for me - and what a treat it was! The Cowshed was surprisingly spacious and extremely well appointed in a peaceful and picturesque location. It is clear that a huge amount of thought has gone into ensuring that everything we could need was supplied. A big thank you also for the cake which was waiting for us! It would have been lovely to have met the owner just to say how much we enjoyed our stay and that we appreciated how much effort has clearly gone into this holiday home from home. An added bonus was the neighbours - lots of lovely ponies looking over the fence at us!

“Perfect”
Reviewed March 13, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Exmoor is wonderful, but no more wonderful than the Cowshed. Top notch in every department. Plenty of space, plenty of facilities, just top notch

“Greta bolthole to explore Exmoor...”
Reviewed February 20, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

A really well equipped property situated on a quiet farm road. A lovely welcome was the lemon drizzle cake, bottle of milk and cupboard full of tea bags, coffee, sugar etc. No single packets in this property, help yourself to the jars of sundries which was a pleasant change to what you often find.
Its about 2 miles into Dulverton which has post office, bank, chemist and a lovely pub (the Bridge). From here you can walk along the banks of the River Barle along a National Trust trail. Lynmouth/Lynton are 45 minutes away and the drive there across the moor is stunning.
Great property, thoroughly recommended.

“Lovely cottage in fantastic area”
Reviewed September 23, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The cowshed lived up to the reviews and more. Very spacious and clean. The cottage set in very peaceful location with the lovely village of Dulverton nearby. Good pubs and a couple of excellent restaurants made this stay very enjoyable. Great weather added to our lovely stay.
