    Secluded quiet and comfortable, let down by poor cleaning and maintenance. Windows filthy on the inside - glue from stickers still on glass etc. Carpets covered in hairs and other bits - cupboard door handle missing in one case, and came off in your hand in another. Room 8 door has no catch so can only be closed by locking it. Bath tap falls off. Room 6 - No soap dish in shower and slippery shower floor would benefit from an anti slip mat. Heating instructions are impossible to understand or use. Heater control in room 7 and in front hall do not work at all. Inadequate instructions for TVs - it is necessary to use Sky, or nothing works, but there was nothing to advise this. No gas BBQ as listed in the contents. Owners were surprised to be asked to provide a change of linen after one week - we stayed 2 weeks. ‘There is a washing machine’ was their first response. Consumables - toilet paper, J-clothes for kitchen, tea towels were in short supply. I would still recommend this house but advise visitors to be prepared to do more washing and cleaning than they might have expected when on holiday.

The property

This immaculate, wooden clad eco lodge is really something special, situated in the rural village of Washford with an award-winning 17th century pub located on the doorstep.

Perfect for families or a group of friends, this cottage is a promising choice all-year-round.

Enter into the kitchen/diner, home to a beautiful central island, ideal for those morning cups of tea, and a dining table which seats up to six people.

All of the extras you could desire are on hand, including two wine fridges and bi-fold doors which open out to the fresh air.

The utility area boasts views towards the garden, and a hallway welcomes you inside, leading off to an impressive snug room.

With an Xbox, Wii, and a mix of bean bags, this is a homely base for the children to play, or a spot to relax with a good book.

For an alternative, choose the lounge, wrapped in natural lighting with a collection of sofas.

When it comes to a good night's sleep, three bedrooms will leave you spoilt for choice; comprising of two beautiful king-size doubles, and a double room.

Each are matched with stunning en-suites, comfortable seating as well as benefiting from underfloor heating.

After an adventure-filled day, this a real haven of a place to unwind, in the company of flat screen TVs and coffee making facilities.

Much of your leisure time will be spent relaxing in the garden, home to garden furniture and a BBQ for a sunny afternoon.

The beaches at Dunster, Blue Anchor and Minehead are all within a few miles, and Somerset World makes an excellent trip.

Set within the Exmoor National Park, famous for some of the most breath-taking scenery, walkers can explore the abundance of trails and wildlife, with access to the South West Coastal Path and Coleridge Way.

Other attractions include the Valley of the Rocks, West Somerset Steam Railway, Lynton and Lynmouth.
