“Cosy Cabin in A Beautiful Setting”
Reviewed 11 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

people found this review helpful

We stayed at Briards as it was recommend by friends who had spent some time here last Summer. Two adults, two children and two dogs, we had lots of space and were very comfortable and cosy. The setting is beautiful and very relaxing, excellent local walks and the beach nearby. We made good use of the swimming pool and recommendations of where to eat, our favourites were the Bell Inn and Bicknoller. Loved the walk from Dunster and the train ride from Blue Anchor. Would recommend to families especially if you have dogs as this has to be the most dog friendly place/area I've been. Thank Jayne for sharing your holiday home, hope to visit again

“Excellent place - loved it loved it”
Reviewed 21 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Stayed here in October for 3 night break with wife, daughter and dog.
The cabin was very comfortable and well provisioned with all you need.
Lovely garden area surrounding the cabin with direct access to the large field, ideal if your travelling with a pet, our dog loved it or if you enjoy walking in the beautiful woodlands.
Plenty to do in the surrounding areas, we will be booking again.

“perfect dog friendly cosy cabin”
Reviewed 18 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

The description was underrated- the view from the cabin was beautiful, as was the very short walk to the beach with waterfall. The cabin felt like a well loved home, and perfect for our dog. The gate into the field from the garden was well used by us. The swimming pool was warm and empty everytime we went for a swim.
I shall recommend this highly and we shall be visiting again.

“Superb Family Holiday”
Reviewed 26 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Briards Retreat for 5 days and wish it could have been longer! Everyone was very friendly! Direct access to the beach as well as many woodland walks made this a perfect site for our 8 year old daughter & border terrier dog, both made many friends! The cabin is so homely with all mod cons - very comfortable & unique and perfectly positioned with views across the meadow. The large garden is so pretty and an ideal place to relax and enjoy the sunshine. Thank you to Jayne & Peter, we would not hesitate to recommend your cabin to friends and family and am sure we will be returning in the future.

“Home from home with stunning scenery”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

What a find, a super lodge, stunning views and everything you need for a very relaxing holiday. The lodge is well thought out for a comfortable stay with lots of room in the garden for some r&r. Everybody was friendly and helpful with ideas of where to visit and good food establishments. If you get a chance give it a go, you won't be disappointed!
