Marilyn's cottage epitomises what we love about AirBnB, a cosy and quaint cottage in the most beautiful setting, great communication and a host that goes out their way to make you feel at home. We would recommend the cottage and Marilyn without hesitation and will be back again. A perfect location for us to explore North and South Devon coast, exmoor park, and ideal for a wedding we attended at Huntsham Court. The fresh eggs were great! The whole house is well equipped, and Marilyn even provided a cot. It was our first holiday as a new family with our 11 week old, and so thankful for the wonderful stay! Thank you!

Marilyn's cottage is lovely! Well-equipped, comfortable and clean, and set in truly picturesque surroundings, it was the perfect base for a weekend break exploring Exmoor. And Marilyn was a very responsive and welcoming host! Highly recommended!

A lovely cottage in a beautiful quiet spot. All clean + tidy on arrival with fresh eggs as a present (thanks). Large garden with a nice view across the fields. We immediately felt at home there as it had a quirky lived in feel, not pretentious. Not niggles but things to be aware of; some low door frames so the tall beware, only one bathroom so takes some organisation in the morning if you have teenagers...! Overall, highly recommended and we hope to return there ourselves. Thanks.

A beautiful escape from everything! Lovely kitchen with fresh eggs and everything you need to cook. We were amazed by how peaceful it was and loved looking at nothing but fields of sheep! There are flowers everywhere and a gorgeous garden as well as lots of games, movies and things to entertain on a rainy day too. Marilyn is next door if you need anything. We had a lovely relaxing weekend here with our little girl and hope to come back!

I love living in Devon! I'm a practice nurse in the local village. In my spare time I make the most of the local area with cycling, walking and swimming.
