  • "Amazing , warm , cosy cottage ."

    With everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Felt relaxed and at home as soon as I walked through the door. Nicky is an amazing host and nothing is too much trouble. The swimming pool is a lovely addition to the cottage . Lovely to be able to take dogs and just walk straight out the door to brilliant walks with amazing views. Will definitely be back again very soon

  • "Fantastic, spacious and well appointed cottage in a super location."

    The homemade banana cake on arrival was much appreciated! The swimming pool with inflatables is a great bonus for children. We had a great week exploring the beauty of Exmoor and relaxing in the cottage, and hope to return.

  • "Really lovely cottage, warm and clean in a beautiful setting."

    Great to be able to walk out straight from the cottage and also a treat to come home for a swim. The owner was friendly and helpful. We had a peaceful relaxed time with plenty of places to visit in the vicinity.

    A lovely welcome and beautiful surroundings with wild horses on the farm. The swimming pool was a hit with all the family. Even my dog was made to feel welcome with a little treat bag on arrival. Would recommend highly.

  • "We had such a wonderful holiday and Nicky was really lovely and friendly."

    We all love animals and they were everywhere. We often saw horses and cows wandering down the road. My children found this hilarious as we don’t see that at home. The cottage was clean and cosy and when we arrived, there was milk in the fridge, a bottle of wine and a delicious banana loaf waiting for us. The beds were incredibly comfortable and we all slept very well. My son loves to look at stars and I’ve never seen so many as we saw here! It was amazing. We got to meet the racehorses, lots of dogs, we swam in the pool and we enjoyed many pub meals. The Royal Oak in Withypool were great and every meal we had was delicious. Everyone we met was friendly and we had a very relaxing stay. None of us wanted to leave. This is a really lovely place to stay. Thank you for having us.

    The cottage is lovely. It is warm, clean, well equipped and very comfortable. The walking directly from the door is fantastic - the area is stunning. The swimming pool is a fabulous bonus, especially if the weather is 'iffy'. We loved our stay so much, Nicky is super friendly, as is everyone else we met there. Thank you so much for a fabulous holiday. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Great Bradley Cottage to anyone and everyone. See you again soon!

  • "This must be one of the best cottages we have stayed in and we use holiday cottages a lot."

    The cottage itself is very well equipped, especially the Rayburn stove we wanted for nothing. To have the use of a garden was lovely for us and our 3 dogs. To be able to walk out of the door and literally be on a bridle path that led down to the most beautiful River Bartle was perfect. The local pubs served good food. The walks on exmoor and on the coastal paths were wonderful, Dulverton is a lovely little town with everything we needed. Thankyou to Nicky and all her staff for making us so welcome, we will definitely be going back.

  • "For those wanting peace, quiet and solitude this is the perfect place."

    Yes it is in a remote place but that is its selling point. Our host Nicky could not have done more to make our stay as good as it was. Indeed we agreed it surpassed our expectations. The cottage was very comfortable and stayed that way despite the very changeable weather on the moors at that time of year. You could stay local all week and enjoy the rural life or its a good central point to go all directions in Somerset and Devon. We are already looking at a return visit.

  • "Amazing cottage amid a busy working estate, set in quite superb surroundings."

    Lots and lots of thoughtful touches left for arrival and a warm welcome from the owner. Great walks from the door, extremely dog friendly. Excellent pub nearby, the Royal Oak in Withypool. Food good (Sunday lunch in particular). The cottage is well equipped and comfortable in the main. Personally, we'd prefer more modern mattresses - they were a bit soft for our taste, but that's just us.. The TV is tiny; smaller than the one shown in advertising. Needs updating with a smart TV that could then receive Netflix, Prime etc. But these are small points. It's a gem of a place overall, with a glorious open fire and a lovely very relaxing vibe.

  • "We all really enjoyed our stay at the cottage, both humans and dogs."

    The cottage is in a great location for exploring Exmoor. There are wonderful walks from the cottage both down to the river Barle and up to the moor. The coast and many interesting villages and towns don't take long to reach by car. There is loads of wildlife to see, red and roe deer, hares, foxes and many kinds of birds. There are great places to eat and drink close by. The cottage itself is cosy and although the garden isn't enclosed the dogs could safely explore with us keeping an eye on them. An added bonus was use of the large heated indoor swimming pool. After a day out exploring it was great to have a relaxing swim whilst looking out over the valley to the moors on the hills. We are looking forward to coming back in the future.

  • "The cottage is lovely, set within a working farm, but with a private little garden."

    It’s cosy but it had everything we needed for our stay. The indoor pool was fantastic and we were able to have a swim every day. There’s great walking direct from the door, either on to Exmoor or down to the river, onto the path to Withypool (shop, pub) or Tarr Steps (pub). We brought our dogs and it was great for them, (but note that the garden for the cottage isn’t enclosed, so anyone with dogs who run off will need to keep an eye on them in the garden). All in all, a lovely stay and a great cottage to relax in and explore from.

  • "Fabulous little gem of a cottage, hidden away in a peaceful valley."

    The cottage was so warm and cosy thanks to a beautiful Aga in the kitchen and a stunning open fire in the lounge. Delicious welcoming cake on arrival and the Owner was very helpful with local information or extra logs we needed. This is a walking paradise. You can walk for miles from here to various pubs, great for a halfway stop on a loop through valleys of woods with the river flowing gently along. This location if you have well behaved dogs is amazing for allowing them off the leads for most the day. Highly recommend a visit here, great location for exploring Exmoor and the surrounding areas or even if you just want a break away from the rat race to recharge.

    It’s ideal if you want to get away from it all and are looking for lots of peach and quiet. Nicky the hosts was very friendly and welcoming and left us fresh farm shop milk, cakes, wine and treats and a ball for our dog. The Cottage was very comfortable and the use of the swimming pool was an added bonus. The only negative thing about the property, that did really did let it down is that it really could do with a good clean. I spent the first day cleaning the kitchen microwave, oven, fridge, sink and basin. I wiped down the sofas, the mat hadn’t been hovered and where dirty. I also had to clean the bathroom as underside of the toilet seat was stained yellow and the shower cubicle had not been cleaned. This is something you shouldn’t have to do when you arrive on holiday.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are sorry to hear this, had you made us aware of these issues at the time we would have rectified them immediately. We're pleased to hear you found the cottage comfortable and you enjoyed the pool - Thank You for leaving lovely comments in the guest book. Property Owner

    The owner was very hospitable and friendly. The place could do with a good clean though (superficially fine but hair in corners of bathroom and I had to clean the fridge before putting food in it). We had issues with wireless (not surprising given the lovely rural location) which would have been fine if we were just on holiday but I had to work and couldn’t so we went home early. Dogs barking from 6 am and did just walk into the cottage uninvited. We like dogs so not an issue for us but just a warning for others.

  • "Everything was great."

    Just one correction needed to the key collection email sent prior to ones arrival. This might seem a minor issue but, with the cottage being so wonderfully rural, many people will be quite out of their comfort zone when arriving. The final instructions talk about passing a white farm house on the right. It's not. It's on the left. Fabulous miriad walks and the use of the swimming pool is a bonus. All in all, very good value - maybe could charge more.

  • "The cottage is located in a very nice and quiet farm."

    It has a nice path walking down to the river and to some beautiful views. The private indoor swimming pool is a big plus point. The owners were kind enough to let us use it whenever we needed as we only stayed for 2 days. The pool is very secluded facing the owners private garden but as no one was out and about it meant full privacy for me and my partner. We also walked in to some lovely fresh farm milk waiting in the fridge. Keep in mind this is a self-cattering cottage which means you need to bring everything yourself. Basics such as towels & a roll of toilet paper are provided, but any extra's, oil or other food products need to be brought by yourself (it does state this in the advert). Also keep in mind, as this is a farm there are several dogs there which are free to roam. They are very friendly and curious but be aware to expect them to walk in if you leave the door open lol! We had a lovely time there and will definitely be coming back. Only down side we had was that the shower drain was slightly clogged which meant the water wasn't draining as well and filling up so we had to quickly wash and leave before it overflew.

    Thank you for your lovely comments. We are glad that you had an enjoyable stay and were able to enjoy the beautiful surrounding countryside. We have spoken with the owner regarding the issue with the clogged shower drain, who has confirmed that this has been dealt with and the water is draining as it should be. We look forward to welcoming you back to Somerset, hopefully in the not-too-distant future. Property Owner

    We enjoyed the indoor swimming pool it was so nice having a swim without anyone else the whole pool to ourselves brilliant. The cottage was lovely the open fire keeps you nice and toasty on those dark chilly evening’s. There are a couple of negative points one being the garden it says it’s enclosed but it is not so if you have a furry friend that likes to wonder of then you’ll have to watch them, the other thing that let it down was the mattress’s they were not comfy I ended up with a spring in my hip, had to lie in a dip before getting comfortable. It could of been cleaner especially with the corona virus outbreak. Shower, Radiators, handles, but apart from that a wonderful place to stay the peace and quiet and beautiful landscape.

    The pool was lovely, warm and private and very welcome, I overcame my fear of water here got a bit of confidence and will now be able to have swimming lessons. There are some beautiful horses nearby, two lovely new ones had just arrived named Hamish and Bertie and it was lovely to see them when we went out daily, as well as some lovely friendly dogs which never disturbed us at all. There is no noise surprisingly when the estate trains many lovely horses and unless you saw them pass you would never know they were there. This cottage has been fantastic, private , quiet, peaceful and just what is needed to get away from the noisy towns elsewhere. The owner and staff were so kind and helpful and the owner was available whenever needed, which was not often as the holiday was perfect. I would go back again when I am able to, maybe next year. I would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting a nice peaceful holiday, as a base to sightsee or just a bolt hole to get away from it all.

    On arrival we received a warm welcome from Nicky who popped by after a late finish with the racehorses to check everything was okay. Needless to say everything was more than okay! The cottage is warm and cosy with tasteful decor and country touches that made us feel right at home. I was a little bit apprehensive about cooking with the Rayburn but it was very easy to use and produced delicious meals! The kitchen was well equipped with a decent sized fridge and freezer which made a nice change and the sitting room was great to relax in. Upstairs the bedrooms are generously sized with thick cosy duvets to keep you snug during the exmoor autumn weather and plenty of space to put your clothes away! The cottage is centrally located in the national park close to the village hub of Exford (The Crown is worth a visit for food and drinks) and is perfect for anyone travelling to exmoor for shooting or hunting.
