“What a lovely place!!”
Reviewed 23 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Just returned from a week at Tilbury View. It was the perfect place to relax and unwind for a week. We had our dog with us too, and it was a wonderful location for us all. Thank you Matt for our fantastic stay. We hope to be back soon. If we can sell up and move in, we will let you know!! :-)

“set in a stunning location with breathtaking views of the surrounding Quantocks”
Reviewed 25 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We spent a long weekend here in July for my husband's birthday and ended up extending our visit as we enjoyed ourselves so much!

Tilbury Farm Cottage is a beautiful barn conversion, tastefully decorated with quality furnishings and set in a stunning location with breathtaking views of the surrounding Quantocks.

Excellent amenities & equipment for self-catering. Everything is thought of including breakfast provisions, which was a lovely touch.

All of the above and we were also able to bring our dog along! (to be kept on lead in farm area) It's a rarity to find such high quality accommodation which also allows pets, so Tilbury Cottage was a great find.

There is also a pet friendly, local pub just down the road serving excellent food.

Perfect base for exploring the Quantocks & Exmoor, highly recommended; we would definitely go back!

“wonderful cottage in a wonderful place”
Reviewed 13 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We stayed for a short break in this wonderful cosy cottage so well equipped and beautifully decorated and in the most idyllic setting above Tilbury farm. We arrived late it night so the welcome package of milk, juice, butter, bread, eggs, bacon and sausages was really nice. Matt waited up for us and was so nice and helpful throughout the stay. The views from the cottage are absolutely magnificent and the walks in the area around Quantock hills are highly recommendable. The kitchen is so well equipped so it it easy to prepare your own food, but we also had dinner at the local pub "the Rising sun" and this was also very good.

“Stunning Property in Spectacular Location”
Reviewed 8 October 2012 for a stay in April 2011

"Tilbury farm is nestled at the foot of the hauntingly beautiful Quantock Hills and enjoys breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside. The guest accommodation is set in its own gardens a distance from the main farm house and is beautifully appointed with quality linen and furnishings throughout. Tilbury Farm has exceptional charm and oozes comfort, good taste and luxury.

As Tilbury Farm's first guests we were wowed by the owners hospitality, generosity, attention to detail, the spectacular views and the high quality of the guest accommodation. We will definitely return. Highly Recommended".

“An amazing place to stay in a stunning part of the world!”
Reviewed 7 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We stayed here for just one evening in June. It was great fun driving along the windy single lane roads to find the place, with glimpses of beautiful landscape along the way.

Driving in to Tilbury farm, the view across the lower landscapes is just breathtaking and has to be seen to be believed.

On arrival Matt and Jenny and their beautiful children (and not to forget the two friendly goats) welcomed us warmly and we felt very much at home.

The cottage is beautifully done, with high quality furnishings and is spotlessly clean. There is nothing missing as far as I could see.

I would recommend to anyone that they visit this area and they should definitely stay at the Tilbury farm cottage.

My biggest mistake - not staying longer!!
