Thank you for a lovely mini break! Myself my partner and our miniature dachshund had a lovely stay exploring North Somerset. Great location for visiting coastal areas - would recommend Porlock Weir and Dunster to future visitors. Cant fault the accommodation, everything we needed in one place and a lovely quiet setting.

Beautifully clean cottage, warm & cozy. Well equipped, had everything we needed. Lovely peaceful setting. Easy car parking. Great for a dog, as there is a small secure courtyard & then lead walks from the door. Its about 20 minute drive to Watchet & similar to get to the Moors.

This was the second time we stayed at Hillside, Old Holcombe and as with the first time the cottage was 5 star. It was spotless and very comfortable and made us feel totally at ease with staying somewhere other than our own home. John and Jan was perfect hosts always happy to stop for a chat or recommend places to visit. Having a dog meant that we Read moretook fully advantage of the field next door which was perfect for an early morning run. Hide
