Joyce's Cottage is a well presented and well maintained property. It is in a reasonable location but, like many holiday cottages, you still have to get in the car to reach places of interest or nights out for entertainment.

The cottage was beautiful and well equipped it was in a remote location but suited us as very quiet. It was ideal for touring around as the coast less than 1 hour away and exmoor and the walks on your doorstep.

The cottage is lovely and very safe. You do have to be prepared to drive round very windy narrow lanes to go anywhere. Having said that the location is lovely and very relaxing.

We really enjoyed our 2 weeks at the cottage, it was in a lovely hamlet with a rural atmosphere, it was a good central location for all our trips about! The garden was pleasant & the brook at the bottom was very pretty & the dog liked a paddle! Would highly recommend!

Really lovely cottage, spotlessly clean & well-equipped & in a super countryside location. We had a great time, kids loved it too & our doggy was more than happy with the paddock & river to play in.

We had a fantastic time; it was our first holiday with our rescue dog and the massive paddock with access to a river was a dream.
