We thought it was lovely the moment we walked in the door. It felt really cozy and had everything we needed. The decor gave a country cottage feel while having all the mod cons. We couldn't asked for anything better.

Lovely, clean cosy cottage in a beautiful setting. We arrived in the dark so initially drove past the cottages,(quite tricky to read the farm sign in the dark) However the directions sent are very clear.

Had a brilliant stay at Sheepfold, great location, 2 mins drive up the road to the Moors, 5 min drive down to Dulverton. Sheepfold was very well equipped and furnished. Lots of extra blankets/pillows/towels in case they were needed. Anne (owner) very friendly and attentive, we had some milk, flowers and a cake waiting for us when we arrived! KitcheRead moren well stocked with the basics (oil, salt, teabags etc). Overall had a great time and would definitely stay there again! Hide

This property sits alongside other holiday lets in an elevated, secluded position. It is 2 miles to the lovely small town of Dulverston. The cottage is well equipped and definitely dog friendly. As people who had not been before to Exmoor, coming from Salisbury this provided a very accessible entry to a part of the country with a full west country Read morefeeling of grand moors, narrow lanes and steep hills.
