Despite some awful weather this did not detract from the rural setting of this cottage, if you want to get away from it all this is the place.. Just far enough out of the village to be secluded. It was great to experience what real darkness is and listen to the country nightlife. The local owls make you smile and the buzzards in the early morning are a treat and i am sure on a really quiet still morning the deer can be heard in the distance at this time of year.
Yes you need a car but being in the center of the national park all roads lead somewhere and each one takes you across the moors in a different direction with always something to see.
Very pleasant green location

This is the third time we have stayed at Greenslades and will probably stay again.. We are familiar with the property and It is comfortable and well equipped especially for a winter booking. There was only one mishap during the week when the gardeners visited and did not secure the gate after their visit. Sadly the wind blew the gate open onto one of our cars and scratched it.
It was good to be near couple of pubs and a small shop.. The cottage felt very homely. Had a lovely time.
Lovely setting and chocolate box cottage
Greenslades was a perfect cottage to spend time with family and friends, celebrating my birthday! Well equipped, comfortable and warm with the log fires banishing any chills from the snowy weather outside.
Walking distance to village shop and pubs.
Exmoor easily accessible for longer hikes and walks. Starry skies a real treat.
The chocolate cake on arrival for delicious!
Would love to go back soon!
Very well equipped and it was a home from home.. The only improvement we would strongly recommend would be a thick curtain over the front door as it was extremely draughty. Better instructions for the use of the tv would have been helpful
We had a really lovely stay in this tardis like holiday cottage.. Such a lovely setting and property. Definitely recommend. We were two families of four and a dog. Garden was perfect for enjoying the late September sunshine. Great village not far down the road. We had a great meal in the Crown and the kids loved the park and the café.
Lovely comfortable cottage in a superb location
Greenslades is a fabulous holiday cottage, well equipped and such comfortable beds! It is situated in wonderful countryside, horse riders trotted past the window as we sat eating breakfast much to the delight of the grandchildren. The stunning North Devon coast is about a 30 minute drive away across the moor but what a beautiful drive and so worth it. We visited Lynton and Lynmouth for a ride in the cliff railway and then some rockpooling, a first for the grandchildren and happy memories for their dad!
Booking through Sykes was straightforward and we were kept up to date with all the necessary information to ensure that we had a hassle free holiday.
Highly recommended all round ☺
Greenslades was lovely and the standard of the facilities was impressive.. It was a beautiful location and as the weather was chilly we used the log burning stoves and felt really cosy. Particularly liked the comfy beds and en suite facilities and found it highly suitable for a two family holiday.
The cottage was excellent - clean, comfortable and warm.. The owners provided everything we needed, even things like hairdryers and torches. The children enjoyed the table tennis and the adults appreciated the comfortable beds and the open fire. It was the perfect place to enjoy half term with three generations of our family.
Lovely cottage situated in ideal location for exploring Exmoor
An extremely comfortable cottage that was well equipped and provided the perfect conditions for a truly relaxing break..
This is a beautiful cottage in a fantastic location. We had fantastic weather and were able to go on a lovely walk and visit to Lynmouth. We had a thoroughly enjoyable long weekend. We would definitely recommend.
Excellent accommodation in an ideal setting.
The property was very comfortable, clean welcoming. A true home from home.
A really lovely cottage which was finished to a high standard. There was plenty of room for eight of us and it had everything you could possibly need. It was very peaceful and the beds were comfortable. It is a great location if you want to go walking, with lots to do at a close distance by car.
Greenslades was a beautiful cottage with lots of room, good quality furnishings and equipment.
Greenslades was everything we could have hoped for and more. Very high quality accommodation. We had snow and very cold weather whilst we were there, but we stayed beautifully warm in the house. Very impressive. Lovely setting.
The standard of the accommodation was excellent, it was lovely to have quality towels and bed linen supplied. The location was ideal for exploring all parts of Exmoor and the village was able to supply all our local needs and one trip to Minehead satisfied the main shop. We all enjoyed our visit so much we have re-booked for the end of October.
This is a lovely property which is very well equipped and located. We slept amazingly well as it is so peaceful! We particularly liked the huge kitchen with the big table, it made a great gathering place with the log burner making it even cosier. The dark sky took our breath away. Highly recommended!
The house was absolutely lovely! Spotless, homely, great location and very well equipped. We were a party of very mixed ages and even The Muvvers, who normally complain about everything, were full of praise! We will be back!
A fabulous cottage, so well equipped. It was great for us to be able to walk to the local pubs in the evening. Would love to return, but fear that such a lovely cottage will soon become fully booked (we will have to be more organised).
We have stayed in a lot of lovely holiday cottages through Sykes and I can honestly say this was the best. The property could not be faulted in any way. It was in a really good central position for walking on Exmoor and it was furnished and equipped to a really high standard. The cottage was very spacious and the bathrooms and kitchen were excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend this cottage.
A lovely cottage, furnished to a high standard with everything we needed in the kitchen. There was lots of space, even as a party of 8 we didn't feel on top of one another. My favourite room was the kitchen, spending evenings around the large kitchen table in front of the wood burning stove. It was a very quiet area, the only sound you could hear were the sheep in the field across the road. Would recommend this property if you want a quiet relaxing holiday.
Greenslades is in a lovely location and a really well thought out holiday home! Would definitely book to go again.
Beautifully furnished, well equipped and in a perfect position for walking.
The cottage was fantastic, it's the best we've stayed in. We loved being close to the moor but within the nice village of Exford.
We hired Greenslades for my hubby's 70th with all 8 of the family in attendance for the weekend. They were all amazed at the excellence of the property and everyone would like to come again. Please thank the owners!
Good private location and not over looked. An Excellent accommodation - great taste of decor, bed linen warm and nothing over looked. Very friendly locals,good pubs in walking distance,the added bonus was to be able to take my beloved Labrador who also enjoyed the stay as much as my sister and myself. Loved the bench at the top of garden for our GT in the evenings.
The cottage was decorated to such a high standard it made the holiday very enjoyable and relaxing. The location was prefect for our relaxing weekend away from the hustle and bustle of Bristol. Couldn't have asked for anything more!
