Lovely accommodation in a gorgeous location. The Elms was clean, comfortable and prettily presented with everything you need for a home from home stay. It was lovely to arrive after a long drive to find milk in the fridge to make a cup of tea and then to see a box of chocolate macaroons on the table, a lovely vase of fresh flowers on the windowsill and then a bottle of cider for later! Jan and Phil the owners were very welcoming and helpful. The gardens were lovely, and the village of Sampford Brett very pretty and peaceful. A good base to explore nearby Dunster, Porlock, Porlock Weir, Watchet and Old Cleeve. My dogs enjoyed a good scamper on Blue Anchor Bay beach and other lovely walks including The Mineral Line from Washford to Watchet and a walk up through the woods near Dunster Castle to Bat's Cave, the site of an Iron Age Fort. We were blessed with beautiful weather so saw this part of the world at It's best. A lovely break and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Thank you!
What an amazing place to stay, lovely hosts and such a clean house. Great part of the country to be in
Returned from another brilliant, peaceful and enjoyable week at the Elms.
The weather wasn't the best but thankfully plenty to do in and around Sampford Brett and luckily the giant trampoline is usable even during a downpour.
Jan and Phil are great hosts, greeted with a smile, complete with flowers, tea / coffee , cider and delicious cakes. The Elms is so cosy and comfortable, the perfect place to stay. The garden has a pool, a trampoline and kids climbing frame.
If you're looking for a base around the Quantocks then look no further.
We just stayed for 7 nights at The Elms for the second year running. We absolutely love it there. It even gave me inspiration for a new book to write!
The cottage is cosy and has everything you need and the gardens are beautiful. Our son loved exploring and playing on the trampoline! The two cats that wander and roam are also very sociable and friendly.
Thank you again for having us, we already miss it and the beautiful village that the Old Rectory perfectly sits in.
Please do visit the church, it's peaceful and as most churches are, steeped in history.
Lots to do nearby from Dunster, the steam trains, Watchet, the Quantocks and of course Exmoor itself. There is a beautiful and huge park in Dunster if you have little ones. Right by the old Bridge near the mill.
We will be back because it's beginning to feel like home from home. Please visit and enjoy the serenity.
Ps. Thanks for the cider and macaroons! What a treat!
Just had a lovely 6 days stopping at the elms. From start to finish loved it. On arrival we were warmly welcomed by both Jan and Phil and shown to our accommodation and shown where everything was located.
Lovely surprise to have tea,coffee milk biscuits...and a bottle of cider and freshly picked flowers from there lovely garden provided for us on arrival. Can't fault the accommodation,it's been beautifully restored with modern bathroom and kitchen and comfy beds.
Free Wi-Fi was great and my daughter made most of the nice strong connection .
Lovely swimming pool kept lovely and clean. Having only 2 separate accommodations made us feel we had our very own pool....not shared...
Everything you could possibly need from the accommodation was included.
Such a lovely village location and the sounds of the country with the sound of the passing steam train in the distance made it even better. Great base to explore the sights.
Can't wait to visit again!
We have stayed in lots of cottages on the English coast over the years and this one has to be one of the best.
A lovely welcome including cider, cookies and fresh flowers. The cottage was immaculate and had lots of lovely features such as big fluffy towels, very comfortable beds a bath with power shower, big TV and an idyllic garden. The pool was very clean and a huge hit with the children.
A very peaceful setting , wonderful beaches nearby and friendly hosts. What more could you want ? !
Enjoyed our stay at elm cottage
