Self-Catering Reviews

December 2019
We have just returned (literally!) from a week's stay at Alice Cottage and I have to say that it is probably the best self-catering accomodation we have experienced to date. It is in a rural location but within 1.5 miles of Minehead itself. There are lots of things to do in the local area..our dogs particularly enjoyed the beaches, but there is also Dunster Castle, North Hill, and Porlock to name but a few places of interest. The cottage is very well-appointed and cosy (the log fire is perfect for cold, dark evenings), and the beautifully decorated Christmas tree and welcome gifts were very much appreciated. The large garden is secure, which is ideal for pets/children. Angie, the caretaker is extremely helpful and friendly too. We have had a wonderful Christmas. Thank you so much! We will be back.

Cottage and garden were lovely.. Extra touches of hand made stained glass windows were rather special. Wifi is useful as I take my laptop to look up locations to visit, etc so I always look for that option in holiday accommodation. Having the garden properly fenced is greatly appreciated by myself as a dog owner, (though my dog was never left unsupervised outside due in part to the numbers of sheep in close proximity). Smashing having local footpaths (which I'd looked up for the hamlet before booking). I enjoyed the touches of humour in the file of crib notes that goes with Alice Cottage. Overall the cottage is a super property - and would make a lovely home! Only teeny weeny negative is that it really does make a difference to have a welcome tray of a few tea bags, milk, coffee (especially, if like me, you forgot to bring the milk with you that you purchased especially!). 5 Stars for the lovely cottage/garden.

We had a lovely week at Alice cottage, the cottage was well equipped, clean, tidy and welcoming .. .. it is altogether a stunning cottage with thatched roof, stained glass windows and a beautiful garden all standing right next to a small ford, the stream of which flows past the bottom of the garden .. there are walks across the fields to Bossington (with a handy half way tea room serving delicious cream teas) and along the river in the other direction to Minehead ... we took our dog who thoroughly enjoyed the week, there were plenty of dog friendly tearooms and places to visit along with all the walks .. we hope to book again one day ..

We had a wonderful holiday at Alice Cottage, Bratton.. The only thing we can think or improve our stay would be an outside light or two as it is a little walk to the car , though a torch was provided for this..We loved the location of this cosy cottage. ***Owner Response*** We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Alice Cottage. We have considered outside lighting, however we feel it would take away from the magic of this beautiful moorland countryside with the stars and moonlight. We do appreciate all feedback and hope that you would visit again.

Just a few little niggles - the handle was coming off the inside of the shower door.. We had to buy cloths to wipe the bath/shower round with as none were left. No outside tap meant the dogs could not be washed off after their walks, which seems to be provided at other cottages. The gardener turned up without our knowledge and then moaned that there was dog poo in the garden - we were clearing up every day but had yet to do it that day and would have done so had we known he was coming. There needs to be clearer instructions for the cooker - we put the oven on (or so we thought) and an hour later it was still cold and so was our food - no idea which icon to turn the knob to as it wasnt clear. Other than that it was a lovely cottage, a lovely garden and set in a great location.

Alice Cottage lacked basic requirements i.. E. kitchen hand towel, oven gloves, outside washing line or rotary airer. It would greatly benefit from a deep clean especially the kitchen area even though I left it in a much cleaner condition than I found it. A welcome tray would put it on a par with other Helpful Holiday cottages.

Beautiful cottage in a very good location close to Devon borders so we had best of both the worlds.. Our dogs loved the large garden! Our bed was very comfortable. Overall a great stay and we would gladly come again and again!! Couple of minor suggestions, which are not essential but could make a difference to some: 1) It would be nice to have a fence next to the shed in the orchard area so the dogs could still enjoy the orchard area. Our dogs escaped accidentally and we had to chase after them. They are greyhounds. 2) please don’t dilute the washing up liquid, it looks cheap and it’s not economical either. 3) consider having a swing from the big tree in the garden, kids would love it!

Our third visit to Alice Cottage.. The tidiness of the garden is much improved and being dog escape-proof is very helpful. Excellent dog walking from the cottage. The only adverse comment would be that a tray with some cups, teapot, teabags etc laid out would be nice after a long journey. Most holiday cottages offer this, and more. Miles Garnett

Alice's Cottage was magical. A beautiful, well appointed and unusual place which felt like home. From the minute we arrived we felt peaceful and happy. Loved the thatched roof and one floor layout. The Alice in Wonderland touches were magical, from the stained glass to the crazy teapot, the mural in the cupboard and the tiny door in the skirting board. Not OTT just perfect. My brother and his young family visited often and just loved it. We played Pooh sticks in the ford and had fun spotting the baby frogs, loads of butterflies in the garden and enjoyed the farmyard sounds - sheep baaing and cockrel crowing. Spotted a paid of buzzards and a kite soaring above the hill. Beds very comfortable too. Great base to explore Exmoor from - just 10 minutes from Minehead, 20 mins from Bossington and Dunster and 1/2 hour to Porlock Weir (all great places to visit), and yet so hidden away and peaceful. Great walk from cottage along Albert's Way into Minehead and we feasted on wild cherries along the way. Book this cottage if its ever!
