“Lovely, didn't want to come home!”
Reviewed 7 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Just got back from a lovely week away in Snowdrop cottage. Our first visit to this cottage although I have grown up visiting the Exmoor so am familiar with the area. Situated in Exford this cottage was perfect for exploring Exmoor and the village itself has everything you need including very nice pubs. The cottage itself was in an idyllic location and was beautiful inside and out. Lovely furnishings and very clean and tidy. Hosts were friendly and made us feel very welcome without being intrusive. Having a little garden and patio area outside is perfect and the location is so peaceful. Lovely walks right on your doorstep. Cottage was very warm and cosy and very well equipped. Fallen in love with the place and didn't want to go home. Thankyou for a lovely week, we'll be back! Highly recommend.

A wonderful cosy cottage with everything you need for a relaxing comfortable stay. Very helpful and friendly owners in a beautiful setting, absolutely ideal for a get away from the city break. Fabulous walks right outside and accessible for all things Exmoor. Will definitely be back and would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.

Thank you for this very comprehensive review. A good point made about the fireguard and we will provide one in future when a baby/young child is resident (for readers of the review Snowdrop is normally sleeps just 2 adults but a cot can be squeezed in). We are also glad you discovered the White Horse whisky collection, an Exmoor attraction that is well known locally!

“Warm, spacious & comfortable cottage in a very peaceful country setting”
Reviewed 9 February 2016 for a stay in November 2015

person found this review helpful

Owner had a problem with the boiler in Snowdrop Cottage and kindly put us into one of his larger cottages. It was very warm and comfortable. If there was anything to gripe about, the decor is a little outdated and bathroom rather old-fashioned.
The owner was extremely kind and helpful and even acted as the perfect first-aider when my wife tripped and grazed her leg.

Fair review but should point out that since this guests visit all the cottages have been redecorated upstairs and had new carpet. Updating the bathrooms is next on our list. Problem with heating in Snowdrop was a leaking hot water tank which has been replaced.

“Lovely warm and cosy cottage”

We stayed during wet and rainy November in this lovely warm and cosy cottage. The log fire was very welcome as the weather was not particularly kind to us. The cottage is lovely and clean with everything you need for a get away break. The hosts were lovely and there if you needed them. The surrounding area is beautiful with lots to do. Would recommend this lovely dog friendly cottage to anyone. We will be back.
