The cottage is comfortable and warm. However the central heating boiler in the bedroom made for a rather disturbed nights sleep. We also felt the cottage needed decluttering ie brush and comb set in bedroom and alot of useless furniture and bits of cloth covering furniture tops. It felt abit like camping out in someone else house, not a holiday rental.

My family and I enjoyed every minute we spend in this cottage at Dunster, though very short holiday, the cottage is clean, well kept and Cosy, if I ever return to Minehead in future I will stay there again! Dunster is very interesting picture of country village, with fresh air and breeze.

Thank you for your comments, we always appreciate feedback from our guests and take these notes on board.
I am pleased to say that broadband is being installed in Thyme Cottage at the end of October 2013. I'm afraid there is little that we can do about the mobile phone signal, but as you say there is some signal at the front of the property.
I am also pleased to report that some work is being done to improve the bathroom facilities which is taking place at present (Sept '13). We will update the photos and information on our website in due course to show the improvements that have been made.
Thyme Cottage is in a great location in the Medieval village of Dunster, we hope you enjoyed your stay. Again, thank you for your comments and we hope to see you on Exmoor again sometime soon.
