"St Anthony's Cottage the perfect location for a truly relaxing break!"

Looks can be deceitful ! The cottage doesn't look particularly outstanding from the outside!
However, as soon as we opened the door it was apparent that this was no ordinary holiday "let"! The two double bedrooms are downstairs and have fantastic sea views. Our double bed was very comfortable and the twin beds in the other room were also given the thumbs up ! We all enjoyed a good night's sleep.
The wonderful open plan living area upstairs is very well furnished and the decor is quite amazing. There has been no stinting on quality and flare! The icing on the cake is the breathtaking view from the sliding doors of the sea and Porlock Bay.
The cottage is well equipped and we had everything provided for us and a wood burner all set
for us to light on arrival. The storage heaters were ultra efficient, if anything we were too warm! All in all this is the best place I nave ever stayed in and I and my family would like to extend our thanks to the team who manage it. We'll be back! Anne Davis.

One of Exmoors little gem's, great place to get away from a busy life and take some "you" time, having the bedrooms on the ground floor gives you the great views from the living area, interesting idea!
Area is great for walking, Porlock just down the road has many places to eat, but take the time to go to Kitners in Bossington, worth the trip,
"Outstanding, will return again and again and again..."

This cottage has got to be one of the best cottages I have stayed in, we have been visiting Exmoor for 20+ years and stayed in many holiday homes, it's clean, warm, comfortable and very quite with only the sound of the waves breaking on the beach, and the best bit is the sliding doors in the lounge so visitors can make the most of the fantastic views out to sea.
We shall be returning to this cottage again for another dose of relaxation in the future.
My one piece of advise I can give to anyone lucky enough to visit St anthony's is the parking can be a bit tight with a big car, and is best approached by driving down to Porlock wier and turning left before the pub and carry on towards the cottage, then reverse in from that direction, it's easier than trying to reverse in from the other way, (we had a big Kia Sorento and after the first attempt found it easy).

A lovely property in an excellent position with beautiful uninterrupted views across to Hurlston Point. The property is well appointed and a very comfortable base for exploring the Exmoor area. We felt the charges were about right for the property and considered re booking for the same weekend next year but were surprised to see the prices for 2014 had been increased by 33%. This looks to be an unreasonable increase in the current climate. It makes the energy companies look like philanthropists !!

How clever you are making the inside of St antony's as wonderful as the outside Believe me, that was almost impossible as the views and garden outside were to die for,Myself, my husband and 2 friends loved every minute of the time spent in this cottage, and my dog, Monty, loved the garden and all the walks from the door. Excellent is the only word for it!!!

We rented this cottage knowing it had two levels ,my husband is disabled and has a breathing problem but decided to give it a go anyway,how glad we were that we did, we only stayed for 4 days but it was fantastic , just what we had been hoping.
I would like to thank chris for all the help he gave in sorting out delivery of oxygen for my husband,the view is to die for,the cottage clean and very comfortable.
Would love to stay again and would certainly recommend this cottage and this company to anyone.
Thanks for a perfect few days away. Jane morris.
