Beautiful accommodation close to the Exmoor National Park, good as starting point for extended pub and fell walks.

Mr Klapp, Ottersberg, December 2013

Comfortable, welcoming accommodation to return to after a day out exploring the relatively unspoilt North Somerset Coast and Exmoor. The swimming pool was an added bonus.

Mrs Schelker-Andrews, CH-3042 Ortschwaben, September 2013

Spent a week at 'The Retreat' with splendid weather. The property was exceptional. Fully equipped and comfortable. Two en-suite bathrooms. As in the name, a peaceful retreat. A swimming pool and sauna were nice touches. Convenient for Exmoor and the coast. Will certainly return.

Mrs Parker, Matlock, August 2013

Extremely clean, and in beautiful surroundings, plus a pool! Couldn't have asked for more - perfect!

Mr Humphreys, Runcorn, May 2013
