Great location for the deer rut
We spent 5 nights at Grooms Cottage in October with the aim of photographing the red deer rut on Exmoor. Although possibly slightly early for the rut, the location of the cottage was excellent, situated within short drives of many of the top spots for viewing. The cottage is well equipped and was a very comfortable place to relax when we weren't out. We enjoyed the lovely views from the cottage and walking around the woodland on site. Tracey is an attentive host and went out of her way to accommodate a request that hadn't shown up on the booking. Thank you so much! For anyone interested in the stars, it is worth mentioning the Exmoor Dark Skies astronomy group who meet in Exford on a Tuesday night. We found out about this too late to attend the week we stayed.
