Cold on t outside warm on the inside
We have previously used Snowdrop in past years and this was the first time we had managed to get back there-its always well booked in advance so get in quick if your interested. We were met by Dave who had a brief chat about all things which was appreciated. We had five magical days and nights based at the cottage-we slept well, we eat well in the local area, the dogs loved the walking in the area and we even got down to Dunster Beach to let the dogs have a good run. Overall the cottage offers all required for a couple and furry friends, if you want a bigger cottage try one of the others available as these are the set to the same high standard. Can only recommend the area, the cottage and Dave and Michelle as hosts-top class

Lovely cottage in a fabulous location
We have just returned from a week at Snowdrop Cottage and can only say that we enjoyed every minute of our stay. The cottage is not huge but very well laid out and there is plenty of space for two people and two dogs. The cottage is very well equipped and the location is amazing, probably the best place to stay in Exford as there is direct access to Exmoor by footpath or bridleway within a minute or less walk from the cottage. The owners David and his wife live next door and could not be more helpful or welcoming. They did not bat an eyelid when my two large borzois descended from the car - they are truly dog friendly people and we really enjoyed chatting to them - Ava and India definitely enjoyed playing with Molly and Pumpkin 😊 We will definitely be looking to book again - we cannot wait to go back

Long weekend
Just got back from a fabulous four day break at snowdrop cottage court farm near exford. My wife,dog lily and I had a wonderful time. David and his wife made us very welcome. We stayed in there one bedroom dog friendly snowdrop cottage. It was very comfortable warm and snug. Log burning stove in the corner of the living room and central heating. we used the well equiped kitchen every morning for a full english and cooked our evening meal on two occaisions, everything we needed was there. The river ex is a stones throw from the cottage with many walks. Exford is a 10 min walk away and both pubs are dog friendly and serve good food. What more can I say apart from thanks David and Michelle and we will be back very soon.

Lovely stay
We stayed here with out Dog for the week. It was lovely, we had all we need and more in the cottage. It was warm and cosy, the real log fire helped. It was well equipped , with the benefit of a washing machine and anything we needed for our stay. Our dog had her own contained yard to sit in the sunshine, watching the chickens. Really enjoyed the walks on the moors, the village is minutes away, two nice local pubs and a village store, perfect place, a real English village. Easy to get to anywhere, even better with the views on the way.
