Mr Wright July 2021
Week Cottage is a lovely rural retreat in a quiet and unspoiled location. It is perfectly placed to access all parts of Exmoor and we especially recommend nearby Dulverton, and Bossington on the coast. Ideal for a quiet week away from it all in a cosy and rustic hideaway.
Mrs Leonard July 2021
Lovely dog friendly cottage in location near best Exmoor walks.
Mr Kimber June 2021
Lovely peace and quiet hardly any traffic noise as it’s a no through road. Away from phones and tech with time to breathe and listen to nature. A retreat. Steve and Vanessa kindly let you share their space.
Mrs Johnstone June 2021
Cute cottage in fab rural area. So peaceful and Exmoor is a 10 minute walk up the lane. Just lovely.
Mr Johns May 2021
Week Cottage is beautifully situated with lovely walks straight from the door. The owners are friendly and helpful and a great source of local information. If you want to have a rural retreat this is the perfect spot, we cannot recommend it highly enough.
Mr Dunstan May 2021
Week cottage is a lovely little cottage, we had a wonderful relaxing time there. Everything was available, we wanted for nothing. Steve & Vanessa were lovely, very friendly and help. We’ve booked again for 2022
Mrs Roberts April 2021
We had a fabulous holiday the cottage we had everything we could want Steve and Vanessa were amazing. There is such a lot to do and see around the area we were out every day we watched Steve breaking in a young horse which was amazing. The cottage is well appointed and in a beautiful location perfect for dog walking and those seeking piece and quiet amongst nature we hope to return soon to the delightful cottage and country side of exmoor

Mrs Harrison March 2020
A wonderfully tranquil location and super, cosy cottage for two - a great place to go and recharge your batteries. We did a fabulous walk to Tarr Steps from the cottage and would have done more of it hadn't been so muddy on the moor!
Miss Budden December 2019
A wonderful few days at Week Cottage. Gorgeous, cosy cottage in a beautiful setting. We will definitely return. Thank you to Stephen and Vanessa for making us feel so welcome.

Mr Bonser December 2018
Staying at the (listed cottage was like going back in time, a fantastic experience. Didn't need technology, tv, Wi-Fi, telephone, internet, supermarkets etc. Just how it should be and how we used to manage. Really relaxing, stress and hassle free. Just old fashioned country life. Brilliant. Many thanks to Vanessa and Steve

Thank you so much for your review - we're so pleased that you had such a wonderful holiday. As you found, the lovely Week Cottage is the perfect place to relax and unwind - where you can step away and enjoy the peace and quiet but also have the benefit of the technology and facilities on offer should you wish to utilise them. Kari, Customer Support
Mr Brown December 2018
We had the most glorious relaxing break at week cottage. Located in the most idyllic spot up a no through road what more could you wish for to get away from the crowd. Yet only a couple of miles from Dulverton which has everything you may need. Lovely owners who are there if needed but we did not want for anything. The cottage ticks every box and was so cosy we didn't even have to bother with the log-burner. We will definitely be back............. and probably quite soon.
Miss Robinson August 2018
Stephen and Vanessa were very accommodating and helpful. Thank you for a lovely mini-break.
Mr Trebett May 2018
Great location for walking, just note how steep you are up.
Mrs Pankhurst March 2018
Central secluded atmospheric relaxing and revitalising.
Mr Lambert February 2018
The property was delightful and charming with all sorts of interesting features and artefacts. The cottage was warm and snug with excellent central heating, a lovely log fire and lashings of hot water. We chose possibly the worst week of the year to stay as we got snowed in from the second night of our stay until the end of our holiday which had to be extended by one night without extra charge. However, the care and kindness of our landlord and landlady, Stephen and Vanessa, meant that we had all the provisions needed for a very comfortable stay. The cottage is in an idyllic location and we would definitely recommend it to friends with an appreciation of rural life and historic dwellings. There is wonderful scenery and moorland walking and the area is rich in picturesque villages with dog- friendly, welcoming pubs. Sadly, the snow curtailed our exploration of the area but we will definitely be back!
Mrs Sandham December 2017
We found the cottage very comfortable and the owners friendly. Suitable for the dog and some lovely walks in the area.
Miss Stewart October 2017
Steve was helpful with anything local we wanted to know. Didn't asked us once if everything was OK about the cottage! The cottage wasn't all that clean. Lack of cooking bowels, utensils, no clean film, foil, kitchen towel. The washing up spong looked old and worn. And no bar of soap to bath with. From the main photo you use, you have the owners cottage in it too. This looks like the whole of the cottage is for holiday let and it's not.
Reply from Classic Cottages
Thanks so much for your review, and we're glad that you found the owner helpful. It's very difficult to address any concerns if they're not raised at the time - if nothing was mentioned to the owner in your conversations, he may have mistakenly assumed that all was okay. We were surprised to see the you felt the cleanliness was poor as we've certainly always found the property to be very well presented and clean during the many years we've worked with the owners, but we'll pass on your additional comments for investigation. There are captions below the photos of the cottage that explain it is the left-hand side of the building, but we're sorry if this wasn't clear. Tanya, Customer Support
Mrs Cockett September 2017
We would highly recommend the cottage to anyone that wants to retreat away from the hustle and bustle of life outside, and go into the calm and serenity of this wonderful hideaway. This is the most wonderful cottage in superb surroundings.
Mr Götz July 2017
Such a lovely cottage. All the small details in it were so cute. Really nothing to be missed. Every single feature made with love from the owner. The hosts Vanessa and Stephen are so wonderful, helpful people. We loved their company. And also the lovely animals around were so cute. The surrounding was so calm. Also the Exmoor experiences we had were so close to the cottage and a dream for people who like being in the nature. After discovering the Exmoor we loved to come home in this beautiful cottage. Thank you Vanessa and Stephen. We will never forget this holidays. Christiane and Siggi
Ms Glover June 2017

Mrs Shepherd January 2017
An adorable little cottage on Exmoor, well worth a visit!! Such beautiful little touches,we wish we could have stayed longer, it was so well equipped, the kitchen had everything I looked for and the bed was so comfortable, you really didn't have any trouble falling asleep after a day exploring the area. We would highly recommend this cottage, ideal for two people and our dog Ernie. I loved the candles! One night we had dinner by candlelight, it felt like we had gone back in time and so charming! Another hit Classic cottages, you never disappoint us. Thank you.
Mr Easterbrook January 2017
Week Cottage was everything we were expecting for our three night break, owners were very accommodating and helpful. Location of the cottage was perfect for the walks we wanted to do, and we will have no hesitation on returning. Thank you.

Mr Thomas October 2016
Excellent quiet location with good access to Exmoor walks and coast.
Miss Fardell September 2016
In these days of information overload what a relief for the clarity of the Classic Cottages Web site.
Dr Poulter September 2016
We were told in a voicemail on the way to the cottage that the single track road to the property would be closed from early morning to evening during our stay, for roadworks. Effectively we had to be out early , back late and had no access to the property during the day. Heavy resurfacing lorries and wet tarmac and noise. We feel we should have been told in advance about this and given an opportunity to cancel and move our booking elsewhere. The owners went on holiday for the week and left early on the day we checked out 'to go swimming' leaving a scribbled note on the car. We are VERY upset and had our holiday spoiled. We will think twice about using this company again.
Reply from Classic Cottages
We're so sorry to hear of the difficulties you had; as we clarified in our email to you, the voicemail from the Owner before your stay was in fact to say that you could ignore the road closed sign as access was still possible, and of course the Owner did show you an alternative route once you had arrived. We're sorry if there was any misunderstanding over this. Sadly we at Classic were not aware of the roadworks or we would have let you know in advance; had we realised there was some confusion during your stay we - or the Owners' son who was staying next door - would have been happy to try to help. Despite this, we're pleased that you loved the cottage as confirmed in your note to the Owners, and thanks for getting in touch. Tanya, Customer Support

A beautiful cottage in idyllic setting far enough off the main road to make it an oasis of calm. Just to enjoy the peace and quiet amd when you're ready there is plenty to see and do and not too far to drive. Great Owners too.

Very comfortable! Very peaceful and quiet but in easy reach of interesting places to visit and good eating out
Miss Farrell January 2016
We had the most spectacular stay at Week Cottage, not only was it clean and cosy, it was our ideal home. Everything we needed was there, including a lovely bath tub and shower, endless supply of hot water and wood for the lovely fire. The walks were breathtaking and the surroundings of the cottage were incredible. Our dog was in heaven and so were we. The owners were very helpful and we felt right at home the moment we walked in. We cannot wait to rebook, this time for a lengthier stay.
Miss Puleston December 2015
Week Cottage is fantastic and a great place to stay for a relaxing break. The cottage is warm and cosy from the minute you wake up. There are fantastic walks and views. The roll top bath was sensational with steaming hot water to soak in. The log fire added the perfect final touches. Our dog loved it as much as we did! Cannot wait to return.
Mr Christmas October 2015
Have stayed for a short break at Week cottage once before and were very pleased when it was available for the few days that we were able to get away this Autumn. Location is perfect for exploring beautiful Exmoor and a short drive from good pubs for eating out. Week cottage is cosy and warm with all the facilities that we required for a relaxing break.
