“Bijou”
Reviewed July 4, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Although Bijou it was very well kitted out. It is one of the most peaceful places we have ever stayed in and also very private. Very clean and bright with a very nice patio. I feel the chairs are a little tired and could do with replacing as they have not much support. However we enjoyed out stay very much, and greatly appreciated the welcome pack and our little dog enjoyed the fact that he had a little garden to roll in. The area is truly beautiful and is really worth a visit. We will be returning. Met the owner who was very charming.

“Nice apartment. A few niggles.”
Reviewed October 19, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed in the apartment for 4 nights in October with one small dog. We found the lane easily which leads to the apartment but didn't notice any signage on the outside of the property but I think there are two areas that you can park.

The apartment is very sweet and compact. The kitchen though small is well stocked with everything you could need. I liked the fact that all cleaning materials, cloths etc were supplied. Various store cupboard ingredients were supplied such as salt, pepper, cooking oil, a supply of tea, coffee & sugar. Like others we received a complimentary gift of crisps, wine & chocolates, very nice. The apartment is lovely and warm and there is certainly no skimmping on heating with 2 radiators and a towel rail in the shower room which all worked very well.

I found the bed comfortable, my husband not so, but this is personal preference. We both thought the reading lights above the bed were far too bright.

The other issue we encountered was after every shower there was a strong smell of fish. We tried leaving the door to the shower room open and closed, fan on and off but nothing worked. Each time there was the strong odor. We had to open the french doors and spray body spray to help get rid of it. We never met the owners so didn't raise these issues direct.

There were a number of reachable cobwebs in the apartment just inside the shower room and dotted around the beams in the apartment.

Overall, we had a pleasant stay and would recommend the apartment to others but the shower smell needs sorting. I would score it 3.5 but TA doesn't allow this.

We visited Porlock & the wier, Lynton and Lynmouth and Dunster. All very pretty.
