“Wonderful! We can't wait to go back!”
Reviewed 2 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We're a family of 4 (14 and 12 year old girls) with our collie dog. Everything we wanted from a family holiday,a quiet, comfortable base from which to explore Exmoor. Having the grounds to walk round was a bonus, safe for the girls to walk the dog and to explore. After a long day of walking we loved coming back the wood burner and the peaceful setting. We were made to feel very welcome and at home by Melanie and John, they were always very helpful suggesting places to visit for the day. To sum up - a very comfortable cottage, a lovely setting, handy shop selling cream teas nearby and a pub with great food, we can't recommend it highly enough.

“Great base for nature, walks (with dog), relaxing”
Reviewed 2 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed for one week with our 3 month old baby and our dog, had a great week. Good weather, nice pub (1 min walk), good outdoor relaxing areas and the cottage was a good base for our walks in the Exmoor area. The whole of Exmoor seemed to be within an hour drive.

Nearest big shop is located at a 15-30 min drive, so better shop for a few days of eat in the pub, which is great and is dog-friendly.

Owners are very nice and helpfull.

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your nice review. Town Tenement is very well placed for exploring Exmoor.

We are sorry that you found the bed to be a bit hard - we have now replaced the mattress.

We look forward to welcoming you back.
