“Perfect getaway”
Reviewed 21 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We have just got back from a lovely holiday at Holly Cottage. The cottage had everything my husband and I needed for our first holiday with our 8 week old daughter. The log fire was ready to start, heating on on arrival and a friendly welcome. The pool and hot tub was excellent although remember to bring a £1 coin for 10 minutes of bubbles. Shop for essentials before you arrive as there are no shops within walking distance. We bought a few DVDs with us for cosy nights in front of the fire which was wonderful. Great walks/ runs although very steep hills and not too far from Exmoor Zoo (I would recommend a visit) and various beaches. Lovely country getaway if you want to 'get away from it all'.
