My girlfriend and I have just returned from an enjoyable stay at Jay Cottage. Located on the edge of Exmoor National Park, we visited hoping to find relaxing settings and a base from which we could do some walking and visit some of the local attractions such as the Valley of the Rocks. We were greeted by the friendly couple who own the cottage, who welcomed us in and helped us to carry our bags to the room which was spacious and immaculately clean. The bathroom is a good size, with bath and shower. There was plenty of hot water and good water pressure in the shower… perfect after a day walking, or an evening at the pub come to that. The room also had facilities for making hot drinks. Although we didn’t use it, there was a living room downstairs which was nice and warm which we were invited to use if we wanted to do so. The breakfasts, which are cooked to order, are fantastic! The owners were extremely knowledgeable about the local area, and were able to advise on walks, attractions and where to (and perhaps more importantly not to) eat – ideal when you’re new to an area. We would particularly recommend the Blue Ball for food or an evening drink… a fantastic pub a few miles away. In summary, Jay Cottage was everything we wanted. A comfortable temperature, nice clean room, good location and friendly and helpful owners… I’d have no hesitation in recommending it and will definitely be going back!
