About the property

Set in the village of Timberscombe, just 3 miles from the vibrant, mediaeval village of Dunster with a wide choice of pubs, restaurants, cafes, gift shops and its romantic castle.

Situated on a quiet, no-through lane (off-road parking for 2 cars) with lovely views and direct access to moorland and forest walks.

Cosy lounge with log-burning fire, kitchen/diner with range cooker and all mod cons, handy utility/boot room and peaceful cottage garden with space to dine alfresco.

Bathroom (separate shower and bath) and 2 bedrooms. The pretty front room has a double bed, while the back room can be provided as either a twin room or with a spacious and comfortable zip-and-link superking bed.

Lovely Cottage in a Lovely Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely cottage - very homely and welcoming - very well equipped to a high standard and very clean. Lots of basics were supplied and a bottle of wine, packet of cookies and orange blossom in a wee vase waiting for us on the kitchen table. A lovely quiet village but within easy driving distance of Dunster and Minehead.

Lovely home from home.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely warm welcoming home, very well equipped, comfy beds, all squeaky clean. Buddy (the horse) comes and checks you out over the hedge on the other side of lane. Absolutely charming. I could live there.

Lovely, comfortable and homely cottage in a peaceful setting.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this cosy yet spacious cottage. It was clean and fully equipped with everything we needed, making it a comfortable and enjoyable stay. It is well positioned in a quiet village in Exmoor, nearby to Dunster and other scenic spots. Highly recommended for a refreshing retreat.

I will definitely return to this property absolutely ideal for a restful break lovely and peaceful but only a few minutes to Dunster by car and only 10 minutes to Minehead the owners are perfectly lovely! Booked this for a valentine break only to find the decor was a romantic red theme! Perfect!
