- “Fantastic base for exploring Exmoor National Park, the cottage i”
- “I stayed at the cottage at the end of april beginning of May and what a fantastic time we had. We were able to take our three dogs which was brilliant. When we arrived at the cottage the key was easy to find and there was a welcoming basket of goodies to keep us going. It was clean, there was wood to use and the only thing asked of us was to top up the wood we used and clean up after the dogs. I we were left alone to enjoy our holiday but had contact numbers if we needed them. Bury is quiet and peaceful, and we all totally enjoyed our time there. Yes I would definately go back there.”

- “Excellent location - very pretty village and easy enough to drive to coastal & countryside locations; particularly liked Dulverton which had a good range of independent shops. The tea room at nearby Pulham Mill was just lovely. A very good base to use for walking holidays. We found the cottage comfortable - and warm when we put the heating/wood burner on.”
- “Bury Cleave Cottage is a beautiful traditional cottage with lovely features.”
- “The location was perfect ,quiet and as rural as expected. Overall, the cottage was good but much smaller than expected. The wood burner made it lovely and cosy on the colder nights and the quality of the bed linen was wonderful, crisp and white.”
- “A lovely secluded cottage in a location that was close to Exmoor, yet had the getaway from it all factor we were looking for. Took our three dogs and the cottage was ideal for a short dog walking break! Everything was catered for and the cottage was snug and cosy, we would definitely recommend it.”
- “This cottage is in a beautiful, rural location. It has lots of character and met all of our needs. Exmoor is stunning and particularly good for walking and horse riding.”
About the location

Dulverton is the southern gateway to the Exmoor National Park, a small town standing between the rivers Barle and Exe, which meet further down the valley. Dulverton has some quaint narrow streets weaving between fine Victorian buildings and a three arched bridge crossing the river leading to riverside walks. There are plenty of shops, restaurants and pubs in Dulverton and in the square is the Exmoor National Park visitor centre and art gallery, offering plenty of inspiration for exploring the vast expanse of the moor on foot, on horseback or from behind the wheel. Why not try an off road safari around Exmoor to see red deer, wild ponies and rare birds? Exmoor has been designated as a Dark Sky Reserve, where the light pollution is low and plenty of stargazing can be done. Near to Dulverton is the majestic lake at Wimblewall Country Park, the first Dark Skies Discovery Centre on Exmoor. Wimblewall is also a premier trout fishing location, and provides tuition in numerous water sports, including sailing, windsurfing and canoeing. Further afield the North Somerset coastline has sandy beaches at Minehead, picturesque harbours and plenty of wild walking around Porlock Weir. A fabulous holiday destination for all those enjoying outdoor activities, dramatic landscapes and wildlife.
