“This property is full of charm and character.”
We used the cottage as a base to visit parents over the Christmas break, we had a fabulous Christmas dinner whilst there using the large dinning table, ample cooking facilities and the lovely log burner.
“The cottage was very characterful and quaint but lacked basic requirements for guests.”
There was no central heating apart from plug in electric heaters so when we arrived on a very cold day it was like walking into an ice box. There were two log burners which we lit and had to look after and try to keep in to help keep us warm. The Bathroom was so cold non of the party could have a shower the whole weekend. We had no hot water for the first day as there was no information to tell you that you need to put the imesion heater on . As they knew guests were arriving surely this should have been done for our arrival. There was no terrestrial channels only via catchup tv through internet. There was no guest information folder to tell you how to use anything and about hot water and I had to contact the owner to find answers. We had a lovely weekend with friends but this is a cottage for summer only far too cold for winter!

About the location
Dunster 1.6 miles; Minehead 4 miles.
Carhampton is an attractive village close to the Exmoor National Park, with a church, pub, village store, community orchard and Post Office. There are lovely walks from the village, over the deer park to Dunster, and through farmland to the beach. The village is less than 4 miles from the popular seaside resort of Minehead, which occupies a wonderful sheltered spot beneath the dramatic North Hill, on the lovely West Somerset coast. This welcoming town boasts a mile-long esplanade, providing a wonderful backdrop to the golden beach, whilst the pretty harbour, visited in the summer by the famous paddle steamer Waverley, offers excellent fishing opportunities. Enjoy a nostalgic steam train journey from the seafront on the West Somerset Railway, or visit Blenheim Gardens, winner of many awards for its beautiful floral displays. Renowned for the largest herd of red deer in England, Exmoor National Park with its wooded valleys, pretty bridle paths and heather-clad moors, is well worth a visit, whilst the magnificent Norman Castle at nearby Dunster is a must.
