“Idyllic Cottage in an Idyllic Spot”
Reviewed 1 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Both my wife and I stayed at this cottage recently along with our small dog Pedro.
We cannot rate this place highly enough! We wanted somewhere away from the hustle and bustle of the City and somewhere we could go for walks and to meet new people. We were not disappointed, the owners of the cottage were very welcoming and actually own the General Store which is only 20 yrds away. The cottage is ideally sited on the bank of the river which is without doubt the best spot in the village! We cannot recommend this place enough!
Thanks for a wonderful stay, Alan & Helen

“Best holiday cottage EVER!”
Reviewed 21 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Wonderful welcome; picturesque cottage; immaculate; extremely well equipped; idyllic riverside frontage; friendly village pub with great food; village shop and post office; cafe (yummy ice cream); central location in the heart of Exmoor! What more could you want for a relaxing break or very comfortable and practical base for walking/country sports? I am booking again right now!

“Fantastic Exmoor cottage on the river”
Reviewed 20 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We have stayed at Bridge cottage several times. It’s our no1 choice on Exmoor for several reasons. Firstly the cottage itself is lovely, very quaint and cosy. It feels old but has all the mod cons one needs. (Central heating, dish-washer , wi-fi etc). Secondly the location in the centre of the village is great, being next to the small but handy village shop, post office & tea rooms, which are also run by the very friendly owners. Thirdly the gardens are lovely, bordering the river, which our dogs love to paddle and swim in. Finally the area is fantastic, great for walkers, with local walks up Winsford hill, along the valley to Tarr steps or simply up onto the moors which border the village. The local pub (Royal Oak, 200 metres away) is nice, doing good pub food in a typical Exmoor pub style.
