“Our first trip to Exmoor, will not be the last.”

Reviewed 29 Sep 2012

Great cottage, great village and pub. Property was as described and more. The village had a shop for all your needs and the local pub had great beer and excellent food. We were made to feel welcome in the village by everyone we met.

“enjoyable,must repeat,all round the property exceeded expectations”

Reviewed 10 May 2012

Well laid out property with wonderful viewa across to the moors large garden running down to the river banks and visited by local wildlife our party loved the living area as it gave us ample space to socialise and play games, or for those that wanted to watch a bit of TV The accommodation was clean & comfortable and the specification was high If eating at local pub at the w/e then booking is a must. Great location for seeing the area, so even in our short stay the days where varied

“Fantastic place to relax”

Reviewed 19 Feb 2012

We stayed at Ormrods for a week mid-Feb (3 children plus dog). The house has been beautifully renovated to a very high standard, was very clean, has all the mod cons, a lovely wood burner, and being "upside down" allows great views of the river and moors from the kitchen and living room (v comfortable sofas). The house has a large garden leading down to the river and is in a very quiet traffic free lane, yet only 2 minutes walk from the village. Withypool has a great pub / great food and village shop, and what made our holiday so enjoyable was being able to forget about the car as you have great walks in any direction from your doorstep. The children weren't always up for a long trek but the house had all the things they need to stay happy ie, Sky+ HDTV, wi-fi, games etc. It is true what they say about the stars at night over Exmoor - a real shock for us light-polluted citifolk. We've stayed in many cottages over the years but this was by far the nicest and the village and local area a real find. We'll certainly be going back.
