“Lovely”
Reviewed 6 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This is a lovely place to come for a short stay. It is quiet and there is so
much to do in the area. Even in the worst of weather we were busy everyday. The beaches around the Exmoor are gorgeous. I wish we could have seen more.

The cottages are attached to each other, however, you can't hear anyone next to you. The view out your window is lovely and I could have read a book and relaxed with a glass of wine, if I didn't have 2 little storm troopers attached to me 24/7. There is a little play area out the back and you can have a barbe and the kids can play happily. All safe and pleasant. The owners have only been there for a year and are helpful, kind and caring. I left my child's toy duck and there colouring stuff and they happily sent it back to me. Which is very helpful and thoughtful.
Overall a great place to be, but be prepared to pay for your heating as an extra cost. For a week (very cold week) it cost us about £40. So add that to the total amount. I would imagine summer would cost nothing.
I would definitely go to Dean Steep again. Therefore recommend it whole heartedly.

Thank you for your great review. We're pleased you enjoyed your stay. We are always happy to return forgotten items, especially children toys! It is true that in cold weather it will cost extra for heating - the previous owners found it necessary to put in the meters as they found that some people just left everything on all the time when they went out. You are right that in warmer weather the money on the meter when people arrive is usually enough for the week.We look forward to seeing you and your family again in the future.

“Great choice for holiday with young family”
Reviewed 25 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

Lovely bungalow - clean, comfortable and well equipped (making cooking easy), really good value. Plenty of parking.

Fantastic grounds and facilities - great little play area which my toddler loved, and it's own fields (which I enjoyed running in), ponds etc to explore. Also a laundry and things like DVDs and toys you are welcome to borrow - this made for an easy and relaxed home from home. There were homemade cakes waiting for us too! I'd heartily re end it for young families.

Great location, five mins in car to lynnouth and lynton, with great views of Exmoor, and with a walk down to the beach possible. Lots to do locally - choice of beaches (busy to remote, sandy or pebbly), great walking, wildlife park, nice places to eat

Really friendly and helpful owners -, eg happily posted something I'd forgotten back to me - and they are keen to continually improve and develop the place

We had a great week - and am sure we'll be back

“The best self-catering holiday accommodation ever!”
Reviewed 26 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The cleanliness of the bungalow was excellent. Comfortable beds with spotless bedding supplied and extra blankets if needed. A shower over bath that worked! Didn't need our cleaning materials as they were supplied in the bungalow. A conservatory room on site with everything you need. Including washing machines, tumble drier and iron. Toys, books and games for children. Maps, where to visit, books and DVDs to borrow, telephone. Owners on site for any help and if not available, their telephone number. The owners were lovely people and a pleasure to talk to and nothing was too much trouble. Two huge fields with wild flowers in abundance, for exercising dogs and a pretty garden with seating and picnic tables. The area is an outstanding naturally beautiful area with lots of places to visit. And shops just a five minute drive away in Lynton. Don't miss the wild goats in the Valley of Rocks. Superb holiday.

This was the 7th time we had stayed at Dean Steep and as always it was a lovely week. We love the quietness and beauty of the place, with views over Exmoor to the front and open fields at the back where we could let our dog run freely. The cottages are warm, well equipped and nicely furnished. If you like a relaxing quiet holiday away from noise then this is the place to stay at. We will be back again as soon as we can.

“Very well equipped and immaculate cottage.”

Set in lovely surroundings. Owners very friendly and welcoming. The cottage was extremely clean and well equipped. Parking right next to the cottage. Lovely and peaceful and in a good location for country walks and easy drive to Lynton and Lynmouth. Have already booked for this summer and can't wait to go.
