Really well equipped, clean and cosy cottage. Easy to find. Was concerned about the garden near the road and the dogs. Didn't need to though as was quite secure. Plenty of room. Comfy beds.

What can we say! The Old Post Office is just fantastic, comfortable, cosy with some lovely features - especially the bath - much needed after walking the hounds every day. Carp fishing at Hewish - good sport. Views from Blackdown Hills stunning, never seem so many buzzards. Found some nice traditional pubs on our travels, closest is Ilton. Had a good meal at the Old Barn Owl, Westport. Wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back. Thanks
