Town: Dulverton is a small town on the edge of the Exmoor National Park. Dulverton has a selection of shops and pubs, and is also home to the Exmoor National Park visitor centre. Further afield from the village is the north Somerset coast.
I have already written a review about the cottage. In all it was a very pleasant property but on two counts it fell short of being excellent.
The instructions for obtaining entry were abysmal - they were downright wrong and applied to the adjacent cottage. The only other complaint was that it looked as though the garden hadn't received attention within the previous year. Indoors everything was fine but overall the ship is being spoiled for a ha'porth of tar as the old saying goes!.

Charming and quaint cottage, very cosy, the ford was a great for our kids ( 12 and 13 ) who played in there for hours, dogs safely in a fenced garden, although a little steep for anything else. Very comfortable cottage, all the basics plus a few extras are there, the village is quite isolated and beautifully quiet , a great base for exploring exmoor. Living room held a soft smell from the wood burner and if it had been colder we would have lit the fire ourselves. Great welcome pack, had to go to dulverton to get provision and struggled to find takeaway but it didn't spoil our stay .
Good descriptiOn and ease of booking

Efficient booking system. Well equipped traditional cottage in a very interesting area amongst beautiful countryside far from the madding crowd but close enough for easy day trips out to the coast or moors. A log fire added to our comfort. No pub or resturaunt in walking distance but not too far by car to lovely Dulverton a jewel in the lovely Somerset countryside.
Lovely cottage, excellent location.
