“Wisteria Cottage”
Reviewed 19 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Beautiful little cottage ideally located for exploring Exmoor and the North Devon coast. Very well equipped and very clean. Lots of local walks and pub serving excellent food within a few hundred yards.

“A GEM”
Reviewed 21 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Yes, this is our Fifth two week stay at Wisteria Cottage yet still found new places to visit without missing out on our favourites. THIS COTTAGE IS A GEM. Off the main road in a quite village with a great pub. Set in the grounds with other cottages it is spotless. You can see the owners are so proud of what they have to offer.
'In a quite village' yet so easy to motor and walk to all the beauty spots of North Devon & Exmoor.
Looking forward to our sixth visit.

“Exmoor Excellence”
Reviewed 15 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed at Wisteria cottage for three nights, with our dog. It was well situated in the village. We were able to walk straight onto Exmoor. The cottage was warm and comfortable and everything we needed was available. The garden was great for the dog and us, it was lovely to be able to sit outside for breakfast. The food package we ordered was delicious we loved the whorlberry jam. The pub provided great food and was dog friendly. The shop also provided a brilliant and very reasonable take away service on Tuesday nights (if we lived locally I wouldn't be cooking on Tuesdays!!)
John was extremely helpful and very knowledgable on the area, a good source of information for walks and sites to see. All in all a great place to stay and explore Exmoor we hope to return soon.

Thank you for your lovely review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and your breakfast pack - the jam is a favourite of ours.
We certainly are spoiled for choice with good food in Challacombe! And as you say the walks from the door lead straight onto the moor.
We look forward to welcoming you back so that you can explore more of Exmoor.

“Excellent cottage with everything you could ever wish for”
Reviewed 16 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Stayed in Wisteria Cottage for four nights with our two golden retrievers. This cottage was everything we wanted for our short break. Very well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed and a really good size lounge with doors opening on to a secure garden. Oh and a great walk in shower in the bathroom. Our weather was good enough to have breakfast in the garden on one morning - a bonus for early April. Good pub and shop in close walking distance - once a week the shop provides a takeaway service - we had pork and apples in cider sauce with carrots, celeriac mash and mini roast potatoes, cooked to perfection and excellent value with the bonus of no washing up apart from plates and cutlery. Our dogs loved the freedom of walking from the lounge into the garden as they wanted (we don't have patio doors at home). The cottage is ideally placed to explore the rest of Exmoor and the surrounding area.
We recommend you give this place a go and don't forget to order your takeaway or try the pub which also has good food.

Thank you for your great review - we are very happy that you enjoyed your stay in our Wisteria Cottage and its garden. All of our cottages have enclosed gardens - ideal for families with children and/or dogs.
The takeaway food from the shop is getting great reviews as is the award winning food from the pub - there are so many great places to eat on Exmoor.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Town Tenement Farm.

Loved it! A lovely, simple cottage in a really quiet, beautiful location with excellent pub, good dog walks and local shop all a walk away. Both of us and our dog thoroughly enjoyed our week here. The owners are very helpful and friendly too. We'll be back definitely!
