“Perfect pet friendly country stay”
Reviewed August 21, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Upon arrival we received a very warm welcome from the owner Dave and were shown around Snowdrop Cottage. The cottage is lovely and cosy with everything we needed for our stay. The bed was very comfy and the huge bathroom had a very good powerful shower. The garden is lovely, well kept and complete with garden furniture should the weather be good enough to sit out and enjoy the country views. The cottage is dog friendly and there are so many good walks on the doorstep that you do not even need to get in a car. But should you want to travel further afield there are more good walks within the surrounding area. There are some maps and walking guides provided in the cottage which we found very handy. Our dog Maisie was made to feel very welcome and regularly played with the owners dogs Molly and Pumpkin. We had a very relaxing week away and look forward to booking up to stay again soon

“Mr”
Reviewed June 4, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Another excellent week with good weather which always helps!! Friendly owners and an idillic location with the river and nice walks right on the door step. House martins and swallows flying round the yard, chickens kicking around and the local dipper down at the river. Plenty of great walks and nature right there.. and with Exford only a short walk with a choice of two good pubs and a general store for essentials it's a great location. Dog friendly and the gardens are also set up with containing dogs in mind. All in all very enjoyable and we will be back!

“Return visit, still as great as before”
Reviewed May 30, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

A return visit to this lovely farm, we rented all 3 cottages and brought the family. They all enjoyed it as much as we had on our previous visit. Once again Dave and his family couldn't be more helpful and welcoming. These are great well equipped cottages, perfectly located for exploring Exmoor. Having your own secure garden is perfect for the dogs and all 3 cottages are kitted out to accommodate them also. However if you aren't travelling with dogs don't be put off - the cottages are immaculately cleaned and have no "doggy" smell - you honestly wouldn't no anyone else's dog had ever been in residence. There are so many walks directly from the farm and Exford with its two lovely pubs is only a few minutes walk along the river footpath. We were blessed with lovely weather so could really enjoy the location with family BBQ's relaxing in the garden overlooking the river with a cold local cider. We will definitely be back and there is still more of Exmoor to explore.

“Sweet little Cottage”
Reviewed March 14, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Quiet location very friendly and helpful owner David. The cottage was very well equipped and we loved the log burner. It was cosy with the central heating and there was always plenty of hot water. Great for visiting Tarr Steps, Exmouth, North Devon and of course fab walking on Exmoor. Lovely easy walk into the village for morning paper/milk etc .

This is a small cottage but it was great for the 2 of us and a small dog. The garden was enclosed so very safe to let her off the lead.

We would definitely go back again.

“Snowdrop cottage”
Reviewed March 6, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We stayed at Snowdrop 4th March 2017 for weekend break for birthday getaway as we also did last year. Could not fault our stay once again and will be returning next year if not before. Cottage has everything you need for an enjoyable stay and owners Dave and Michelle were very helpful and nothing to much trouble. Dog friendly and a lovely cosy cottage.
