“Lovely rural retreat”
Reviewed 17 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

My fiancée and I stayed at Garden Cottage this past week. The cottage was lovely, the setting peaceful and relaxing in a little hamlet. The Black Venus pub is only a 5 minute walk away and we had a great lunch there. Lots of walks around the area, Heddons Mouth probably the best place we went to. Central location to lots of places to visit. Very nice.

Thank you for your lovely review. Heddon's Mouth is an amazing walk, as is the Valley of Rock outside Linton. We are very fortunate to have such a good pub nearby! We hope to see you again soon.

“Lovely cottage, lovely peaceful setting, owners very friendly and helpful”
Reviewed 14 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Stayed with elderly in laws and our three dogs,the cottage is ideal for anyone with limited mobility. Garden cottage is set in a beautiful location with rolling hills and peace and quiet. Local pub the Black Venus is well worth a visit and the owners of the local shop are very friendly and helpful, the shop is well stocked and the rabbit pie is a must to try.
Challacombe is a great base from which to explore Exmoor. Lots of lovely walks right on your door step and just 5 miles away is the lovely Wistlandpound Reservoir.
The owners are very helpful and friendly and the cottage is well furnished, a great find and we can't wait to return.

“Small but Beautifully Marked!”
Reviewed 20 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

My wife and I along with our daughter and her 12 week old baby stayed here last week. We enjoyed our stay and the weather was glorious, which certainly helps. Mel and John are very helpful and the lemon drizzle cake from the village shop is the best. Space in the cottage bedrooms is very limited but this did not bother us too much, although anyone travelling with a lot of gear might struggle. The cottage does not have a washing machine but there is an on-site laundry which Mel will open when needed. With two athletes and a baby we would've preferred to have instant access to a macine but we have a solution! Put the crockery in the dresser and there will be space for a machine. Simples! We would definitely stay here
again, it is a beautiful area.
