The accommodation is lovely bright, airy, clean and equipped with everything you could want. Excellent comfortable bed, even though open plan plenty of room for us and our two dogs. Owner was very friendly and informative with plenty of ideas for local walks. Beautiful views, idea location for country walks or beach visits.

Beautiful, cosy cottage with stunning views. The bed is comfortable and huge. Welcomed by the owner's. The cottage is close to another large holiday cottage and attached to the owner's property, the owner has two small dog's and children that pass the front of the hideaway cottage most evenings, but they are very thoughtful. Beautiful place to stayRead more! Hide

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Exmoor Hideaway. The views are stunning and there are so many places to visit within a 30 minute drive. The owners are really friendly and accommodating, and the Black Venus Inn down the road is just lovely. Our dog loved the whole experience from the accommodation to the open fields and the beaches. It is a coRead morempletely different atmosphere to up here in Yorkshire, much more calm, quiet and peaceful. We will definitely be visiting again in the future. Hide

The Studio was just outside the village of Challacombe but within walking distance. with a pub in the village which has great food.. It was peaceful with lovely views from the front of the Studio. We couldn't have been made more welcome. It was situated within easy access to most of the North of Devon/Somerset.
