Fabulous remote cottage with everything you need for a wonderful holiday.. Ideally suited for our walking group with footpaths from the door and beautiful countryside to explore. There are also places of interest to visit on those days when the weather lets you down. To see the herd of red deer wandering across the hillside in the evening on the way back from the pub was magical.

Beautiful situation, very pretty, plenty of room, good showers and heating.. Peace, quiet, wildlife, walking, birdwatching. Excellent organic farm shop about 5 miles away. The Black Venus at Challacombe is very good, super food, excellent wine and beer.

We booked Limecombe way back in the Autumn of 2018, but due to some intense hospital treatment we had to move our booking to later than originally planned.. The owners accomodated this move for us for which we are so grateful. The instructions to get to the house were greatly appreciated, with the treck across the fields adding to our anticipation and setting the exciting tone for our visit. We found this wonderful treasure of a home at the end of the trail and had a wonderful weekend. It took a little while to get used to not grabbing our phones for updates on social media, family issues, etc. but once we'd adjusted it came as a source of freedom and relaxation - we talked to each other! All the gang who stayed found the premises very homely and comfortable and a great base from which to enjoy the local area. We'd recommend it to everyone

My friends and i would really like wifi at the cottage but otherwise it's a really lovely place.. Peace and quiet, wildlife on the doorstep - quite literally. Great for walking and dog-friendly. The bedrooms are very comfortable, showers and bathroom work fine, plenty of cooking utensils and 2 ovens which really help as we are cooking-freaks LOL. Dark skies, stars, lots of excellent walks direct from the house without the need to take the car. An excellent gastro-pub a couple of miles up the road. It's become a regular for us in spring and autumn.

We stayed as an extended family group for one week, we all wished we could stay longer. The cottage is beautiful, beautifully fitted out with everything you could possibly need. The location is stunning and very secluded. I wouldn't hesitate iin recommending this cottage to anyone and am sure we will return to this amazing place.

Your pictures for the cottage do not do this cottage justice, location is everything and this cottage really proves that point..

We arrived at the cottage after a terrible bank holiday journey that ended in heavy snow.. Our first sight of the cottage location started to make it worthwhile, and we had a really wonderful week. ****Owner Response**** Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback and we're delighted that you had a lovely stay following a difficult journey! We appreciate your comments regarding the signs and these have now been removed and thank you for your efforts in helping us during our changeovers. We hope to welcome you to Limecombe again in the future.

Housekeeper called on our arrival day and was very friendly and helpful.. The Christmas decorations, fairy lights and hamper were a wonderful touch. The location is very remote but utterly wonderful and the additional directions with photos were very useful.

We were absolutely delighted with our recent stay so much so we have already booked again for next year.. The location was unique and the directions to the property were excellent. Your staff liaised with us a week before and responded promptly to any queries that we had. We also were put in contact with the owners housekeeper Nicky whom again was very helpful. All our friends who came with us thoroughly enjoyed their stay and it more than exceeded all of our expectations.
