We had a fantastic week at Shells Cottage. The cottage was clean, well equipped and the grounds were beautiful, including a large private garden with barbecue and plenty of seating for a large party. The hot tub is great and the water was checked everyday. There are other holiday lodges on the grounds but you never feel overlooked. This is a perfect cottage for a group getaway in the countryside, and is in a great location for exploring West Somerset and Exmoor.

The cottage was lovely and very roomy for the number of people it was advertised for. It was also very well equipped in terms of cooking and catering facilities - far better than some properties we have rented in the past. The white goods equipment provided were also excellent. The onsite Manager was very welcoming and looked after us very well.”

It was absolutely perfect, we could not have asked for a nicer property. The bedding and towels were lovely, clean and fresh. The bathrooms and kitchen were spotless.
