“unique very well equiped pet friendly cottage.”
Reviewed September 19, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

David and Nicky offer a very warm welcome. They have an in depth knowledge of the local history and walks. Friendly and helpful nothing is to much trouble. The cottage is a wallkers and dog owners dream with great views. Only 10 minutes walk from the picturesque village of Porlock . The cottage is very well equiped and has been tastefully and thoughtfully restored to a very high standard.
Our dog loved the paddocks at the rear of the cottage and on a good day the courtyard is a real sun trap. We loved the cottage and would definately recommend it.

“Wonderful holiday in a beautiful cosy cottage”
Reviewed September 2, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The cottage was idyllic, cosy, clean, well equipped and had all we required. It is also furnished to a very high standard. The private garden was stunning and if you have dogs the “paddock” is a large, safe and incredibly interesting mix of wild and cultivate land. The dogs loved it and the views from the top were something you never tired of. The view is also repeated from the lounge and the bedroom. David and Nicky were brilliant both were happy to chat but were never intrusive, David noted that the dogs might get under the paddock gate and was thoughtful enough to extend it with some netting to ensure they remained safely inside. Nicky gave us a tour of the private gardens, worth asking because seeing it from the drive is only part of the picture. they are truly stunning.

A wonderful break in a cosy warm cottage, with lots to do, views to admire and hosts that care. A truly relaxing break , thank you David and Nicky.

“Fantastic cottage. We had a great holiday.”
Reviewed August 30, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Tha cottage is cosy, very clean and well equipped. The decoration, furniture and fittings are of a high standard and tastefully done. For those with pets the paddock gives them freedom and the owners comfort that they cannot inadvertently get lost. David and Nicky are both on hand to assist if needed. David understood our dogs might squeeze under the gate so put a piece of wire across the gate to solve the problem. Nicky was only too happy to show us around their private gardens, which you must see, they are fabulous. Lots to do in the area, stunning views across to Wales and flanked by Exmoor. A wonderful week enjoyed by both us and our three border terriers. We would most definitely recommend Coachman's Cottage as a base in this part of Somerset. Thank you David and Nicky for letting us live in your beautiful cottage. Hope to see you again soon.

“Superb cottage in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed August 27, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A great place to base your holiday in Somerset. Loads of great walks (at every level) right on the door step. The vintage bus to Lynmouth followed by the return coastal walk is a memorable. STEEP (1:4) hills on some roads.

Just a couple of minutes on the bike from Porlock in one direction to Porlock Weir in the other. Numerous pubs, restaurants and take-aways within walking, Fine dining a short drive away.

The cottage is really cosy and well appointed. A welcome sight at the end of a hard day's hiking. Staircase to the bedroom is steep so could be tricky if you have restricted mobility. Loo and bathroom downstairs. Comfy beds. Spotlessly clean. Bottle of wine on arrival. Wi-fi. Everything you need, Genial hosts offering plenty of advice and the run of the paddock. Off-street parking. Highly recommended and we intend to return (with a dog next time!)

“Relaxed in Porlock”
Reviewed August 19, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We were looking for a relaxed and peaceful holiday cottage that was dog friendly and dog secure, we have a small Yorkie cross and a loon of a Labradoodle, Coachmans cottage proved to be the right choice. Wonderful woodland or coastal footpaths to the weir or into Porlock, dog friendly pubs if you turn right or left out of the drive. Hosts were welcoming and friendly with the main house having beautifully planted gardens, with some more exotic species of plants mixed among the usual British herbaceous flower beds.
Sea fishing at Porlock Weir beach (to the left of the fisherman's cottages) was very productive and fun.
One word of caution for pet owners, Exmoor is Tick central during the summer months, please make sure your hounds are up to date with there tick treatment!
We will be looking to book the cottage again next year.
