Me and three friends and the dog stayed for a week and was amazed when we walked in. Such a beautiful old building and the facilities were brilliant. The little extras like a cake and tea was waiting when we arrived and dog treats were just the kindest touch. I felt like a king in the huge bed. Can't wait to stay there again.

“Great location - comfortable spacious cottage”
Reviewed 5 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013
person found this review helpful

The 'Oval' is in a great location, within 5 minutes stroll of the village and castle of Dunster. Don't worry about parking outside the cottage, we found that the road was more than adequately wide enough to cope with our large 4x4. The cottage itself is both spacious, well equipped and comfortable, with more than adequate facilities and the bonus of plenty of toys and games to keep the children occupied during the evening (the TV signal is intermittent). Contrary to other recommendations, we found the best place for a drink to be the Luttrell arms and not the Stag pub opposite the cottage that lacked atmosphere. Dunster village shop covers the basics however both Tesco and Morrisons at Minhead are only a 5 minute drive away for provisions. For those with children, a top tip is to wait until after 2pm for entry to Butlins (if they want to go to the water park which is a good wet weather option) as it is quiet and also half price - we found 2 to 3 hours is more than enough!! We can also recommend the award winning fish and chip shop on Bampton street in Minehead. Also - if it's a sunny day then the 50 minute drive to Woolacombe is well worth it for the beach but you MUST leave early to avoid the traffic. Porlock, Lynton, Lynmouth and Bossington are all within a few minutes drive and worth a look. If you want to go either cycling or horse riding (local hire facilities in or near Minehead) then book well in advance, we were left disappointed through leaving it to the last minute to book. Overall we can't fault the 'Oval' for value for money, comfort and space and the location and proximity to so many places of interest is a great selling point.
