Gorse is a comfortable cottage just right for 2 and of course the dog. It has everything you need in a self catering holiday.
The farm animals and dogs are very friendly and all took to our dog the sheep lambs and goats accepted us and seemed to be quite happy running around with us all down by the river.
The owners are very friendly and take time to talk to you and give information.
The farm is in a lovely quiet valley a short drive from Exford.
We have no hesitation in recommending the cottage if you want a nice quiet break.
