  • "No batterys in smoke alarms x2 the bath is small and not suitable for this property and you have to stand at a angle if your having a shower as the bath is very small and you cant have a bath in it as very small no handles on bath either ."

    Mould on the ceiling & walls in the bathroom as no extractor fan in there . Light fittings in the bathroom very dirty and grimey . Windows need attention as 2nd double bedroom no latch on the window and very rotten . Also other windows need attention. . 2nd double bedroom wardrobe as soon as clothes are put in there it will fall on top of you so be very very carefull . Kitchen tiles coming off around window . All the mugs hanging up all dirty and greasy . Only 2 saucepans no good for a large family staying . No toilet roll holder in bathroom. no games room as advertised had to hunt for the towels as none left out no battery in clocks . Had to hunt around the cottage for light bulbs for living room as most wasn't working . Cooker only 3 rings that work and its very old . All i can say is the cottage is very uncared for . if a large lorry goes by about 4.30am in morning the windows will rattle very busy and dangerous road and the traffic will wake you up very very early . This is the first time in the 10 years I have left a negative feed back for a cottage . Just could be doing with a lick of paint inside and out . It was nice of the caretaker to tell us about a piece of land he owns with a picnic table by the stream it was very nice as there is only a small seat at the cottage .

  • "The old Inn is a perfect place to unwind and relax with the family."

    . the quint features low beam ceilings.quite secluded yet not that far from local villages with plenty of pubs and tea rooms to choose from all within short drives. The beaches are quite pebbley but ok. The walking and hiking options seem endless in what is a very nice part of England. Would definitely recommend the old Inn.

    The king size bed was not a king size bed as I'm over 6ft tall it was rather uncomfortable and when we went to clean the cottage we found the Hoover didn't work which isn't a big thing but we couldn't clean the cottage as well as we would of liked to otherwise it was a lovely cottage

  • "The 'cottage' was really good."

    Much larger than expected, good kitchen, comfy and cozy lounge. No shops or anything in the little hamlet of Luckwell Bridge but as long as you plan ahead this is a great spot. Reasonable shop in Wheddon Cross, not too far away. We managed to go at about the coldest time possible and the place was still warm. Also the road outside is a 'B' road, and was gritted often, which made it harder to get stuck, although we did manage to get snowed in for a while. Large and very nice chocolate cake waiting on arrival. Would go again.

About the location


Dulverton 9.5 miles; Minehead 10 miles; Barnstaple 29 miles.

Wheddon Cross is a small village in the heart of Exmoor National Park, a thriving rural community with village shop, friendly pub and an all-weather court which is available for many sports including tennis, netball and basketball. Nearby is the picturesque village of Exford, situated in the heart of the Exmoor National Park. In a lovely setting by the River Exe, Exford boasts a village green, tea rooms, a shop, Post Office and two traditional inns serving excellent food and drinks. Exford is at the centre of a walkers' paradise with many miles of waymarked paths down the Exe and River Barle valleys and up to the nearby hills, including Dunkery Beacon, the highest point on Exmoor, with outstanding views over 17 counties. Exford is renowned for fishing and riding, with the village hosting a horse show every August. The largest herd of wild red deer in England and Exmoor’s unique wild ponies roam the moors just above and around Exford, as they have done since the time of the Domesday Book. A lovely area to explore on your holiday. Further afield: Lynton & Lynmouth (Watersmeet Gorge (National Trust), Valley of the Rocks & Cliff Railway).
