5/5 Excellent

Comfortable stay
Thank you Aiden and team for making us so welcome and for the Goody box for us to enjoy. Such a spacious cottage with the most comfortable beds. Everything we needed was there. Try harder with the weather next time!

5/5 Excellent

Absolutely beautiful cottage, absolutely beautiful surroundings, fantastic holiday with my sons
So easy to book... any questions answered immediately from host. Property so incredibly beautiful and clean and way much more than I’d dared to expect

5/5 Excellent

Absolutely amazing
We stayed here with close family for a few days after lockdown, we wanted somewhere with peace and quiet and a place for the 2 young grandsons to enjoy . This place delivered on all fronts. From the warm welcome by Aiden the owner, to the beautiful cottage and its gardens and to the location in its gorgeous surroundings, we were blown away. We had a wonderful time, many thanks Aiden, you did us proud and we will certainly be back!

5/5 Excellent

Work trip
Stayed here as we were working nearby. Very attentive host and great communication. Excellent property.

4/5 Good

Great location and everything you need!
Remote enough to feel as though you are getting away from it all but close enough to amenities and just a short drive to the beach, the wild landscape of Exmoor or dramatic North Devon coastline. Plenty of attractions very close by such as Exmoor Zoo, Arlington Court (NT), Dinosaur and Wildlife Park and Watermouth Castle so a fabulous base with small children. On site facilities are excellent with indoor games room, swimming pool, playground and toys galore and Linda is extremely welcoming and helpful. We felt that Poppy Cottage itself would benefit from a little updating in places but it was very clean and well equipped. We would definitely consider staying here again!
