  • "Wonderful cottage very clean and a lovely log fire for cosy nights."

    Layout suited us but if 2 separate families lower bathroom did not offer privacy as open plan. Beds very comfy good selection of DVD’s offered for all ages. Good location 10 min walk to Dulverton. Loved Tarr steps…the Sunday lunches looked huge! Wimbleball lake great for walking. Lyndon Lynmouth very enjoyable even in inclement weather. Would definately revisit this cottage and recommend to family and friends.

  • "Such a lovely cottage!"

    Decor was beautiful, very clean and well equipped, comfortable beds and extremely cosy. It had the wow factor for us and we will definitely rebook and highly recommend. I loved it so much I would like to buy it, if it ever comes to the market!

  • "Clean cottage lovely and warm great location 10 minutes to shops and pub, only recommendation is a door on the down stairs shower room/toilet that serves a twin bedroom we had 2 teen age boys different families and couldn’t really use the toilet or shower."

    The first floor twin beds very poor quality and headboard and legs coming apart. Definitely will stay again.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback. All feedback is taken very seriously and we have taken your comments on board. The twin beds will be fixed. Aside from this we are glad that you enjoyed your stay at the cottage and its lovely location and look forward to welcoming you again in the future. Property Owner

  • "The property was filthy."

    . mess marks down the toilet pan, windows wouldn’t close, log fire still left with previous client debris, blinds broken, vacuum cleaner dint work, in fact spat out so much dirt it set the fire alarms off. We had unexpected visitors who knew we were out, but came back to find them on the property. I filed a complaint and have had no acknowledgment. The cottage is lovely, but not maintained, and this is your business!

    Thank you for your feedback, the issues have been taken up with the caretaker, the visitor at the property was the gardener. We are sorry you did not contact us during your stay we hopefully could have addressed these issues straight away for you. Property Owner

  • "Great cottage, with beautiful views and in a really good location."

    The cottage was spacious and cosy. However it could have been a bit cleaner and upstairs the bathroom mirror was not securely attached and one of the blinds in the master bedroom was broken.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback and we are really pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Shepherds Cottage. The owner is aware of your review and the points have raised will be attended to. Property Owner

    Was very handy for the quaint village of dulverton which had some lovely shops and places to eat. The boys also enjoyed playing football on the lovely park that was 2 mins walk away. Would definitely recommend staying at this beautiful cottage

The property

On the fringes of Exmoor National Park and on the banks of the river Barle in Dulverton Somerset, is this beautifully styled detached cottage.

Completely renovated, this lovely cottage provides an exceptional base for friends or families looking to escape to this wonderful part of rural Somerset.

Enter into a newly fitted kitchen with original flag floors and appointed with everything you'll need, before passing through to the bright and spacious sitting room where you'll find a wood burning stove for cosy evenings in and comfortable sofas to relax on.

The dining area is located in a lovely conservatory style room with views over the garden and ample seating for families to gather together for an evening meal or a hearty breakfast.

From here, there are two steps down leading to a twin bedroom and a shower room adjacent to it.

The cottage boasts two separate staircases, each leading to a sumptuous bedroom, one with a kingsize bed and a twin room.

These are served by a spacious family bathroom.

Outside there is a lawned garden with a neat patio and a table and chairs.

There could be no greater pleasure than to simply sit and unwind with a refreshing beverage or dine alfresco whilst listening to the current babbling along nearby.

The town of Dulverton rests on the edge of the Exmoor National Park and hosts a selection of independent shops and supermarkets for all manner of amenities, as well as some pubs and restaurants if you don't fancy cooking one evening.

Exmoor National Park is home to a number of fascinating trails for walking, hiking or cycling opportunities and the area is recognised for its abundance of wildlife, including deer, otters, bats and dormice.

Tarr Steps, a medieval stone clapper bridge across the River Barle located 4 miles from Dulverton, is well worth a visit.

Further afield, you'll find traditional seaside fun at Minehead and Blue Anchor Bay.

Ideal for lovers of both coast and country, Shepherds Cottage is a wonderful retreat.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location


Minehead 17 miles.

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.
