Guest Comments

Here’s what our guests say about staying with us at Triscombe:

Bracken Cottage

Chosen as an ideal location for visiting, good sized cottage and swimming pool on site. Activities enjoyed walking coast path, walks to Lynmouth, Holnicote Estate, Dunster & Dunster Castle. Sea fishing in Minehead.

Thank you for a lovely stay. No doubt we will be back.

Miss G & Mr. P, Bracken Cottage, August 2018.

We chose this accommodation because it is in the middle of Exmoor, is part of a farm and is good value for money. Exmoor is so beautiful! We walked in Horner Wood, at Watersmeet, explored Minehead and many other places. At Triscombe we love the views, the silence, the space and the swimming pool.

Mrs V, Bracken Cottage, June 2018

We had a wonderful time. This place is perfect for us. We really appreciate everything this place has to offer.

A lovely cottage just right for two. The setting on the farm was lovely and quiet and we enjoyed using the pool and games room. Set in Exmoor we explored the area far and wide. We were lucky to have glorious weather for the whole two weeks. Seeing loads of wildlife. Seeing the red deers on Exmoor were the highlight. Thank you Ruth for the lovely welcome and extras.

Whortleberry Cottage

 “The pink beauty stands wide and tall,

With it’s beautiful garden and large walls,

Greenery invades the outside of the house,

As Socks the cat chases a mouse.

The Stream runs with a splashing sound,

The crooked bridge that we found!

Lovely scenery as you look around,

The hills stand large and perfectly round.

Cottages open their curtains for a brand new day,

No one can wait to get out and play,

The place is just so quiet and calm,

This is the place called Triscombe Farm.”
