  • Mr Smith

    “The house was a beautiful location and we loved it.”

    However on arrival there was a very strong smell of oil which made everything taste of oil and was very unpleasant for 2 days and probably not good for the health. We couldn't spend time relaxing downstairs and eating was not an option unless we wanted to taste anything other than oil. Ironically I had asked for the aroma sticks to be removed as we have an extremely sensitive sense of smell. ...

    However on arrival there was a very strong smell of oil which made everything taste of oil and was very unpleasant for 2 days and probably not good for the health. We couldn't spend time relaxing downstairs and eating was not an option unless we wanted to taste anything other than oil. Ironically I had asked for the aroma sticks to be removed as we have an extremely sensitive sense of smell. Angie Brown was very helpful in getting out an engineer within the evening of the second day of our stay. The smell started to subside after that but it was a while before it disappeared although we could sometimes smell it when we returned after a day out. I appreciate that these things happen but I understand that this had been known about for 2 weeks and yet we still had to get an engineer out who spent at least an hour on it. For such a lovely place this didn't give us a good start. The surroundings were lovely and generally peaceful. We would come again if there was no repeat of the oil leak.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback and we are delighted to hear that you enjoyed Heyden Cottage and the location. The issue with the boiler had been addressed initially prior to your stay - unfortunately the engineer needed to be called back in and I am pleased the caretaker was able to assist so swiftly - apologies for any inconvenience. You'll be pleased to hear it is a permanent fix this time! We do hope you'll choose Heyden Cottage again in the future. - Sykes owner relations

The property

On the edge of a large and beautiful wood, Heyden Cottage is a wonderful moorland Exmoor cottage found at the end of its own private uneven drive.

With fabulous walks and mountain bike trails from the door and views across moorland from most windows it sits in a magical spot, great for stargazing.

Inside there's a huge heart-of-the-house kitchen with dining table/chairs and a sofa plus wood burning stove to relax in front of after a hard day exploring the hills.

There is also a cosy sitting room with an open fire (please note there is no TV at this property) and also a ground floor WC and shower room.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms, a double, twin and a single plus another bathroom with separate shower.

Outside a suntrap courtyard with table/chairs and beyond the woodland and orchard to discover.

From this unique base you can explore the very best of Exmoor; visit the hilltop castle of Dunster, take a trip to the idyllic National Trust village of Selworthy and explore the coastal village of Porlock.

The resort town of Minehead is just 1 and a half miles away and is also worth a visit if you can drag yourself away from such a tranquil base.

About the location

MINEHEAD

Taunton 24 miles; Bridgwater 27 miles.

The popular seaside resort of Minehead 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 bridlepaths and heather clad moors, is well worth a visit, whilst the magnificent Norman Castle at nearby Dunster is a must.
