Thank you for a lovely cottage! It was absolutely perfect for our needs. So beautifully decorated inside and to such a high level. The whole family loved it so much that we're already planning our return visit next summer (for a full week this time!).

Rita Reynolds 8-11 July

Just wanted to thank you and let you know how much we enjoyed staying at your cottage in Withypool - it's a beautiful village and really welcoming particularly with a dog on tow, we really didn't want to leave and carry on with our holidays.

We had a lovely time in your cottage at Withypool and found the cottage very comfortable and well appointed.  The weather was uncharacteristically fine, sunny and warm. (We're regular Exmoor visitors and seldom have had such glorious weather there in the 30+ years we've been going there).  The closeness to the moor, the Barle, the village shop were all bonuses and the children loved playing in the river with their fishing nets. Thank you for a splendid holiday

We had a lovely holiday in your cottage and were sad to come home yesterday, thank you. The cottage was lovely and the village idyllic.

We loved your cottage. It was light and bright and beautifully clean and very comfortable. We would love to stay there again next year.

We all had a great time at Gorse Cottage. The village was so pretty and we loved to walk the many routes from the cottage followed up by a trip to the fantastic tea room. The cottage itself was lovely, so spacious and clean with everything you could possibly need. We loved our holiday and will definitely be back. — Lisa S, 07 Aug 2017
Gorse Cottage is a little gem: it's light and spacious yet is still really cosy. The cottage was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The location is perfect being so close to the moors for great walks with the dog. I love that it's dog-friendly, even in the tea-room! It would be lovely here at any time of year. — Karen, 21 Sep 2016
