“Perfect cottage in a perfect village”
Reviewed June 7, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Lovely dog friendly village. Two lovely pubs within a stones throw of the house. Porlock and Porlock Weir well worth a visit. The house had everything we needed for our long weekend and Bella our Jack Russell enjoyed it too. Would definitely return.

Had a great short weekend here .Lovely little 3 bed place, beautifull decor . Comfortable , clean, well equipped .Nice bedding and towels provided .Lots of little personal extras at the property .Free wifi. DVDs . Uht milk and biscuits greeted us on arrival . Sweet courtyard garden . Fully equipped kitchen . Surprisingly quick to heat up the property with radiators in all rooms . And it's own parking space The owners have obviously taken great care in furnishing this holiday let .
A very scenic place to stay with sea views , plenty of places to walk , pub lunches , tea rooms etc . Dunster is not far and a pretty village . Would recommend this property . They even had stair gates and a dog cushion for those that would need them . Also loved Porlock harbour with its pubs and sceanery .

Wonderful location- the house contains everything that you could wish for a weekend/week break ! It was warm and cosy and just the right size for the 4 of us ! There are plenty of pubs - one just a stone's throw across the road. It was good to have an allocated parking space - I would definitely return and would recommend this house to my friends and family!!

“Returned for a second stay.”
Reviewed November 13, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Having enjoyed my stay here so much the first time, I decided to bring some friends for a visit.
Archways is a comfortable, cosy place to stay. The kitchen is well equipped which is great if you want to eat at home. The sofas and beds are comfy, and my dog loved the fact that he was catered for too with a box of dog stuff, spare water bowl/dog bed. That was so thoughtful and a lovely attention to detail.
Spent some time watching the different birds coming into the garden for the various bird feeders.
Enjoyed getting out and about too; to some local villages like Dunster, and had a great cream tea at Miller's in Porlock Weir.
Was very clean and tidy on our arrival. Would absolutely recommend Archways as a place from which to explore Exmoor.
And a fab play park in the village too. Good for adults and kids!
