In general a peaceful relaxing holiday. Can't wait to go back.
Very peaceful & quite great place to relax , The owners are very friendly people , the extra touch of lemon cake , tea ,coffee sugar, was very welcoming
Would highly recommend these lodges! Wonderful location, really peaceful. It was nice to relax in the hot tub after a day out walking!
Lovely clean and comfortable cottage. Helpful staff and perfect location. Hot tub was amazing! Can't wait to book again.
Overall we had a great stay and will definitely be booking again.
We would definitely stay here again but we would take along some additional kitchen utensils, dishcloths, tea towels & bath sheets.
We loved the accomodation, especially the outside space. The kids loved the pool and games room. We all loved the hot tub.
Fab place, well maintained and in beautiful setings.
THe house we stayed in was for 5 persons, we were only 3 and found we had plenty of room, even tho we all slept in the same room!
If my daughter (5) was to be sleeping in the single bed (on the landing) i would have been v worried about her falling down the stairs but actually we dragged her mattress into our room as we wanted to all sleep together - there was plenty of space!
The place was spotless and superbly maintained by the family there. The surrounding were fab and we would definitely go back. The swimming pool was small and had to be book for private use but again spotless and warm. We didn't use the games room but if you had slightly older children i can see that would be great. The hot tub on our doorstep was perfect! There was a barbecue stand there that we made use of and the lemon drizzle cake on arrival was very welcoming.
Really enjoyed it. Wasn't too much around to do but if you're looking for a quiet get a way it's perfect. Our hot tub didn't have a cover/ roof on the decking like the first cabin so when it rained we couldn't really go in it. Also weren't aware we had to pay for electricity after paying so much to stay! But really enjoyed it and would recommend
This is our third visit to exmoor gate. As always Gary and Diane gave us an extremely warm welcome on arrival and were wonderful hosts all through our stay. As before we stayed in Appley Cottage a perfect accommodation for a couple of people of any age which we found to be extremely clean and peaceful and perfect for relaxing.We shall be returning many times in the years to come .Thanks yet again to our hosts . Keep up the good work and would recommend it to anyone.
We had a fantastic time at Exmoor Gate Lodges. The surrounding area was so peaceful and tranquil you could easily unwind. The Owners were very pleasant and welcoming.
