"Home from home"

"heating and eletric"
stayed at this cottage for one week very disappointed as we had to put money in meter for our electric after 3 days and the owner controlled the central heating on for one hour in morning and evenin… More
We were shocked by this review, with regards to the heating complaint, it was August and almost a mini heatwave with the temperatures averaging over 70s all week.
Our own website clearly states that we have the electricity on a very low tariff, on a coin meter, (most people only have to pay £2 or £3 per week, depending on how much cooking they do) What our guest forgot to mention, is that we kindly allowed her to bring in 5 more members of her family plus their dog on several occasions, for whom she cooked for on our electricity, so I am not surprised she had to add a little towards it.
We strongly dispute the comment about the cleanliness of the bathroom, which we leave spotless, also may we comment on the remark of "needs updating" it is believed that our lovely cottage was built in the 1890s
and we want to keep it with a cosy cottage appeal and feel that the most modern of furniture would not suit it. Many of our guests have mentioned that our clean settee is very comfortable and that they snuggle into it, and we fully intend to keep it that way.
We always ask all our guests if everything is alright for them, as it absolutely means everything to us that it is,and to date, we have never had one verbal complaint, we work very hard to please everyone, especially with the price, we do not charge 5,6,7, or 8 hundred pounds a week, like many do, and feel that we give great value for money in every respect. It is a sad day for us when we receive lower than 5 stars but
will always strive on to make sure that we do. Tessa and Chris.

"For a great scenic location and relaxation in comfort stay here."
The Owners are very accommodating and make you all very welcome.
They were informative about the area and of the many local scenic walks one of which we enjoyed alongside the river.
Should you wish they will introduce you to a local farmer who will show you around his farm and his animals and allow you to feed some of them. This was particularly appealing to our Grandson. We also saw some of the wild deer.
Don't forget to ask where 'Jack' is? Jack is an old retired horse and loves polo mints and is close to the property.
A great break for us all.

"A lovely place to relax"
This is our fourth visit to what is an area of outstanding, largely unspoilt beauty. So much wildlife (deer / Exmoor ponies/birds).
We will come again and we will definitely stay at Worzel cottage in the future.
Chris & Tess are amazing genuine, hosts - only too happy to help with advice on places to go and things to do (which there really is no shortage of). It is so quiet - the perfect place to unwind and relax.
An authentic (and again very friendly) place for a afternoon tea can be found in Winsford - the Bridge Cottage Tea Rooms : another great Chris & Tess recommendation
In short a stunning environment and a lovely and incredibly friendly place to stay whether for a weekend or longer.

"Wonderful relaxing break for all seasons"
We have visited this property on 2 occasions, and have to say, the owners Chris and Tess, are fantastic, so welcoming, nothing is too much trouble and offered lots of advice on things to see and do whilst on our stay(s). The accommodation is in a wonderful setting, fantastic views. Excellent walking and great for me being a keen photographer.
The beautiful large leaves were still on the magnolia tree which provided a lovely haven for so many colourful birds. I have never been able to watch birds for so long and take excellent photographs.
Most evenings we would sit outside watching the spectacular exmoor sunsets.
Would thoroughly recommend, on price, friendliness, location, views and most of all peace and quiet.
