This was one of the best cottages we have stayed in,everything you needed was provided. It was clean and well decorated offering a mix of traditional decor with a modern fitted kitchen and bathroom. We particularly liked the wood burner which was very cozy after a long walk. If you enjoy walking and peace and quiet this is the place for you; Wimbleball Lake and numerous dog friendly walks are literally on the doorstep.

Everything about our holiday was excellent. The cottage is ideal in every way for either a walking holiday from your door and/or a base for touring. The cottage is of a real high standard and most welcoming after a long days walking. The hosts are extremely helpful and are there to make your holiday as enjoyable as possible. The scenery surrounding the cottage is wonderful and peaceful, making it a perfect getaway from a hectic world. I would strongly recommend this cottage to all my friends.

The location of the cottage is really wonderful, with direct access to walks around Wimbleball Lake and beyond. The owners were very friendly and welcoming, and the cottage is very comfortable indeed. The cottage works very well for bringing a dog.

We really enjoyed our stay at Harewoods Cottage, the quality was very good. We needed somewhere quiet and relaxing and it certainly offered that, being close to the lake was a joy and the calmness and tranquility was second to none. The owners made us very welcome and were really helpful and friendly, we would recommend this cottage to anyone that would like a relaxing holiday and hope to return again.

Such a beautiful well kept cottage in a rural lakeside location. The peace and tranquillity of this little gem of a holiday cottage is to truly behold. We arrived at the end of a stressful year to spend a quiet Christmas and we got just what we wanted. The location is ideal dog walking country and our two border collies, loved exploring the area. The circular walk around the lake is a must but not for the faint hearted! The sound of the cacophony of owls 'hooting' to each other at night will stay with me as one of my all-time favourite sounds! The unpoluted night sky without any illumination from below, allowed us to admire the stars in the sky, truly amazing - the best in Europe. We could go on, but it really is worth your while, finding this all out for yourself. We will most certainly be going back for further visits!!

If your idea of a break on Exmoor envisages a peaceful base in a comfortable cosy character cottage surrounded by pastoral countryside with direct access to footpaths leading to picturesque views and dark night skies free of light pollution (cloud permitting), this cottage is for you. Extra features like its lakeside location with a nearby water sports and activity centres are just icing on the cake. Sarah and Alan host this property which is one half of a traditional farmhouse (they live in the other bit) dating back a few centuries but stylishly modernised. Situated a mile down a drive from the nearest unclassified road, the farmhouse initially seems isolated but many Exmoor attractions are actually reasonably accessible by car. The standard of accommodation is high with a well equipped modern fitted kitchen, stunning bathroom, and a wood burner in the living room. Satellite TV and a good internet signal are available for those that want them, and the absence of a mobile phone signal means you can choose to holiday here completely undisturbed. A perfect place to enjoy nature's tranquility and the beauty of Exmoor. I'd give it six stars if TripAdvisor allowed! Comments based on a week's stay in October/November 2016

If you want to leave the world behind this is the place for you! Very clean, cosy and superbly equipped. Owners really care that your stay is enjoyable. The location nothing short of idyllic. A real tranquil haven!

This place is a total Gem the cottage has everything you would need and More. Its both traditional and cosy and modern and practical. It was spotless too, better than a 5star hotel. Really enjoyed the Woodburner adding a sense of ambience felt the history of the place and it had good vibes. The location is so peaceful and tranquil and great for total relaxation and fresh air. Sarah and Alan are approachable helpful and friendly nothing is to much trouble. If you are thinking about staying here and like the outdoors plus peace and quiet stop thinking and book it asap. I have already given word of mouth reviews to everyone I know and anyone else who will listen. Sarah and Alan keep up the great work will see you again soon as will someone who knows me. Thanks Mike, Becks Eden & Archie

This is a lovely cottage which is part of a small working farm, The cottage is very well furnished with a modern kitchen and bathroom. It is comfortable and cosy with an efficient and lovely wood burning stove in the lounge. The owners were friendly and welcoming and more than happy to deal with any reasonable request. The cottage is dog friendly and well equipped with everything a family might need (If I am really picky, soap and sufficient toilet paper might be a nice upgrade). The lake is a few tens of metres from the cottage with stunning views and a made up path around it. In the middle of winter, the ground does get heavy so suitable footwear is recommended. This cottage is remote and well off the beaten track, so a car is essential. It is a good central location for exploring the north Somerset and Devon coast or Exmoor itself. There is a pub and a shop a couple of miles away - walkable by the very fit and able. Do not expect a phone signal, but broadband is adequate close to the the router in the living room. A really enjoyable few days.

Cottage is nearly half of a traditional Exmoor/Brendon Hills farmhouse & is the ideal combo of character, charm together with modern conveniences. Great beast of a woodburner for those winter nights & very comfortable, cosy cottage all around. Location great for touring esp Exmoor on your doorstep & with convenient, easy direct access to Wimbleball Lake/Haddon Hill giving fine dog walking opportunities. Owners very friendly, hospitable & helpful - cater for your every need, whilst maintaining privacy. We have stayed in a few holiday cottages & it`s fair to say this is one of the best ever, v stylish yet traditional renovation. Would highly recommend to anyone......we will certainly be returning

We were warmly greeted by the owners on our arrival and once inside saw they had left wine and milk for us (thank you Sarah and Alan). the cottage is decorated and furnished to a very high standard. The bed is sumptuous and the bath is divine. the cottage is situated on Exmoor and is close to many attractions. A must is the South West Railway, a steam train ride through the country which is just brilliant. Thank you again for your hospitality, we will definitely return.

Before we left we had a lovely conversation with the owner Sarah and on arrival she greeted us warmly and explained all the key information that we needed. The cottage is beautifully designed and fitted and felt like a 5 star hotel. The bathroom is also luxurious and even better than the photographs. If I was famous then this is a retreat I would choose. The lake is only yards away and the location is so good that we only used the car twice. The night sky is amazing and we were lucky enough to see shooting stars as well as the lunar eclipse. The dogs are very friendly and there are plenty other animals to watch and listen to. We walked around the lake and over Haddon Hill and we must go back to enjoy kayaking on the lake. Dulverton and Bampton are worth a visit and we enjoyed the Copper Kettle after a long walk from Dulverton to Tarr Steps.

A lovely secluded cottage a moments walk to the lovely lake with stunning views. The cottage was fitted to a very high standard and was large enough for a family of four and two dogs. There were lots of lovely walks for the dogs and a dog friendly beach in Dunster is only 20mins drive down the road. I cannot recommend this cottage more highly, it was a lovely quiet relaxing week spent in beautiful surroundings, 10 out of 10.
