The cottage was excellent but dealing with Sykes was problematic
Mr Kelly, October 2020

Lovely cottage, very clean and all amenities you could possibly need.. The beds were extremely comfortable. Loved being able to have the stable door open in the evenings. We were lucky with the parking, managed to get a spot outside the cottage every day, if you get back to the cottage after the school run, you're usually lucky. My Dad and I had a lovely stay, the only difficulty was it was up the hill from the village which was a problem for my father as he has trouble walking, so worth keeping that in mind when looking for your holiday cottage. The rest however was just lovely and I would not hesitate to stay there again with a friend or recommend it to others.

We really loved the cottage, which was perfect for 3 adults.. The nearness to the centre of Dunster was a real bonus. We managed to park every day without too much difficulty but I think parking could be very difficult in high season. The cottage was well equipped with lovely hot water all the time. Some of the kitchen equipment (pans) were a bit jaded. A few more logs for the wood burner would have been nice. Overall, a lovely holiday!

A lovely little cottage full of character.. A cosy lounge with wood burner and two big double bedrooms, we enjoyed a very comfortable stay. Parking wasn’t a problem and the helpful pointers from the owners meant we could always park close to the cottage. The church bells do ring regularly and throughout the night but they didn’t bother us and we were sleeping in the back bedroom with the window open, this didn’t stop us from enjoying many a good nights sleep. We very much appreciated all of the guidance provided by the owners on local walks, things to do and places to eat. Dunster Castle is approx 5 mins walks from the cottage and Dunster beach about 25 mins. The little utility room was great to hang wetsuits after a trip to Wimbleball Lake for a spot of Paddle boarding, as was the washing machine after getting wet on a walk back from Dunster beach. The cottage was furnished to a high standard throughout, the bathroom is downstairs but that didn’t bother us, shower over bath nice and powerful and always lots of hot water. Both bedrooms were a great size, bedding and extra soft blankets were plentiful. Thanks for a great week.

It was all fantastic.. Only thing was no logs provided for the fire. Despite it being summer, we had a lot of rainy walks and were quite chilli on returning to the cottage and wet shoes to dry so a fire would have been perfect. I know you said there would be a pack of logs so I assume it was a mistake. The location was amazing. So close to the pubs, tea shops and so many places to walk and the beach. The church clock chimes every 15 mins all night and sometimes for three minutes, which did wake me a few times, but we can live with that.
Mrs Wild, August 2020
October 2019
A pleasant, well-situated property for enjoying Dunster and the surrounding areas.. Happy to recommend it. Some microwaveable bowls for cooking would have been helpful.Possibly air locks, but loud noises from the pipes when the taps were turned on. We agree that the noise from the church occurs at more times than advertised on the listing but actually we found than pleasant and atmospheric rather than disturbing.

Lovely cottage in a great location.. Dunster beautiful with easy access along the coast to Minehead, Porlock and further.

Lovely little cottage in a beautiful village.. Plenty to do and see in the area. Communication by the owners was excellent.
Mrs Cameron, July 2019

The cottage was in a great location.. I was surprised that there wasn’t a food shop in Dunster. The whole area is very attractive and we had wonderful weather so we’re able to go out walking every day. Couldn’t get the overhead shower to work and never found the shared garden, not a problem for us but may be for others. Lots of helpful leaflets in the cottage and the Exmoor National Park ofiice/shop in the town is a mine of information. Somerset has a lot of free parking which is good. The information regarding when the bells chimed, provided by Sykes, was inaccurate. It’s not 3 times a day, more like 23 and they don’t just chime the hour, it’s every quarter and you usually get a tune at the end of the chimes which can last up to 2 minutes. I live in the centre of Shrewsbury and I am well used to bells. I did adjust and it wouldn’t stop me staying there again.

This doesn’t feel like a holiday cottage , it feels like staying at friends .. The cottage feels loved and lived in unlike some rental properties . The kitchen is very well equipped and we cooked most nights . Everything is spotlessly clean , the shower is lovely , with excellent water pressure . We will definitely be back again next year .

A fabulous period cottage in a stunning village. It is situated up a small lane behind Dunster church. The cottage itself is authentic, historic also very homely. This made it a pleasure to come home to each day and very easy to relax in. A few added touches in the welcome pack including local shortbread and tea/coffee made all the difference. The information within the welcome folder helped us massively in deciding what our day trips should include. Location wise it really is ideal. You are a 2 minute walk from the main street of Dunster which situates you perfectly for Dunster Castle, Yarn market, lovely shops and numerous hikes/trails. This charming place has stolen a piece of our hearts I would recommend it to anyone. When we do return to explore even more, we will most certainly be staying in Little dragons.

Really well equipped for cooking equipment.. We think there is a problem with clothes moths in the cottage. When it rained, water cascades into the bedroom window from the blocked gutter above.

A very well equipped cottage.. Surprisingly spacious. Parking sometimes tricky near cottage. Church bells unusual but quirky. Sounded loudest the first night!

Miss Heron

Great place to stay, within walking distance of the village (fab deli, newsagent, cafes, pubs, restaurants but no general store) and amazing coastal paths.. The cottage itself was cosy, very comfortable indeed, lovely beds, crisp, clean linen, plenty of towels, big sofas for relaxing on in the evening, wi fi, television, well equipped kitchen and so peaceful. Two, very minor, points worth mentioning: 1. I couldn't get any mobile signal inside the cottage - because the walls were so thick probably. It might bother others more - I just turned off my phone and forgot that the rest of the world existed for a week. 2. There's no general store - no Spar hidden behind a mediaeval façade so although the deli sells milk , bread and some toiletries (as well as an amazing selection of cheeses and other delicious things), we had to go to Minehead for the boring every day stuff. Just bear it in mind if, like us, you're not coming by car. All the arrangements through Sykes and with the owner were easy and clear. Can't wait to go back again.

Quite surprised how much morning/evening traffic using this narrow side road, some obviously school related.. Parking opposite can be down to timing. Church bells may take a night or two to get used to. Thoroughly enjoyed our short-break, parked the car opposite and walked around Dunster, to Minehead, to Dunster Station and Beach and back through Carhampton.

It was nice coming "home" from a day exploring the area: Selworthy / eating fish and chips at Porlock Weir / a train ride on a steam train from Minehead station. The cottage has everything you need to make you feel at home. Lovely big bedrooms, nice bathroom and a cosy living room with woodburner.

This is a very well appointed cottage offering comfortable accommodation right in the middle of one of England's most unspoilt mediaeval villages. The bathroom is on the ground floor, along with lounge, kitchen and utility room; two double bedrooms upstairs. Fitted and furnished almost entirely by Next. I would definitely be happy to re-book.

Delightful fully operational cottage. Warm and comfortable fitted out beautifully-no bathroom upstairs though. Loved the position behind the village of Dunster and easy walking of the shops, pubs etc We chose it for easy access to Exmoor by bike and on foot-realized too late(our fault) that there is no-where to store or wash the bike! oops, but it was really lovely there. Church bells take a while to get used to as they chime through the night.

Little Dragons was excellent and very comfortable. It had everything we needed including a kitchen which had everything to cook a Christmas dinner with. Both my daughter and I slept brilliantly! The wood burner was fantastic. Dunster is a lovely quaint village which we both loved, and all the surrounding villages were both interesting and friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend this cottage to anyone.

We had never used Sykes Cottages before but we liked the look of the cottage and it lived up to all our expectations. The cottage was well equipped and there was nothing that we lacked. The only comment we made at the end of our stay was that there was a shortage of towels for 4 adults and although we could wash them and we did but drying space was lacking. That was the only complaint and didn't prevent us having a lovely holiday.

The cottage was immaculate, everything was so perfect! The location was ideal, with all of Dunster within easy walking distance, and a short drive to beaches and supermarkets. We had a great week, and would definitely stay here again.

The cottage has been refurbished to a very high standard. The equipment was higher quality than usually found in holiday rents. The cottage was very clean when we arrived with tea, coffee and biscuits on the table. The cottage had comfortable seating downstairs and the bedrooms were well fitted with clean colourful bed linen. The cottage was in the ideal place for great days out and excellent pubs for evening meals or you could have a romantic evening in with a bottle of wine. Local supermarkets Tesco or Morrisons only a short trip to get grocerys from. Cottage could be dangerous as you step straight out on the road which can get busy with cars. The church bells could keep you awake at night as the ring every 15 mins, then play a long tune. Hidden little gem that we would visit again.
