“Relaxing winter break in Exmoor”

person found this review helpful

We had a lovely, relaxing week in Timberscombe. The cottage is beautiful & located in a charming village though there is not much to do directly on the doorstep.

We had everything we needed & the cottage was as shown in the pictures. The bathroom's under floor heating was a real treat in the winter mornings! The log fire was also great. We used the kitchen a lot & were grateful for all the pots/pans & utensils in there, it was very well appointed!

We had a minor issue with the water pressure in the shower, which we realise can't really be helped, but everything else was fantastic.

We found it was easy to get around Exmoor from Timberscome by car. Even in some drizzle we were able to enjoy the walks along the 21 mile drive, Watersmeet, Coombe Martin, Dunster, Lynmouth. We went to Tropiquaria & handled a snake & lizard. We also managed a day trip to Exeter.

Great food at Psalters in Dunster but we ate in most other nights. The Budgens at Wheddon Cross was useful for supplies & logs. We can recommend the Miles coffee from there!

Jonathan was v helpful in setting the holiday up & made the process smooth.

“What a find!”
Reviewed 3 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

A warm and welcoming cottage, with everything that you need. We had a wonderful time and very sad to go home. It was nice to find somewhere lovely and clean, a real home from home. An excellent base to explore Exmoor, which is s beautiful any time of year. We only had one problem with the electricity, but the owner came back really quickly saying that it was a supplier fault and that it was being dealt with. Looking forward to our next holiday there!

“Stunning cottage in breathtaking location.”
Reviewed 29 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

What an incredible cottage. Booking was easy and efficient with great communication from the owners. When we arrived, the cottage was immaculate and beautifully finished. Fell in love with the kitchen as soon as we walked through the door. Our 19 month old loved it and it was extremely safe for her to explore. All rooms were cosy and welcoming and we loved nothing more then cooking in the amazing oven and relaxing in the lounge with a glass of wine.

The local area is just amazing, and Timberscombe was the perfect place to explore from. Also, a beautiful little play area a minutes walk away which was fab for our daughter.

Cannot recommend this cottage enough and can't wait to return next year! Simply flawless.

“Great cottage and area, but no decent food within walking distance and church bells ring at night.”
Reviewed 20 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

A well-equipped cottage (especially with games and computer games if you have kids) and helpful owners by email beforehand. No outside area to sit nor possibility of loading immediately outside, though parking is only a short walk. Great beds; living area a bit dark though kitchen good. Village pub disappointing - basic pub food and no atmosphere. Village has no shop (tho a PO open mornings only that sells eggs but nothing else). Cottage very clean on arrival and great not to have to clean on departure.

“Beautiful Cottage.”
Reviewed 28 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We have just come back from an excellent week at Yew tree Cottage, the cottage is beautiful and charming (my wife fell in love with it) everything is supplied in the cottage that you need and the cottage has been renovated to a very high standard with under floor heating in the bathroom which is lovely and the very deep bath which is also lovely. Your about a 15 min drive from Minehead and Dunster is a 10 min drive, Lynton and Lynmouth are a must very pretty place.. Would not hesitate to recommend the cottage to anyone. The only thing I would say is there is no Wifi some people might like that but I had a 9 and 14 year old without wifi and no network.. (Not the owners fault the network) but like I said still wouldn't hesitate to recommend... Thank you Jonathan and Caroline..
