Emma and Richard are superb hosts and are always on hand should you need anything

Richard welcomed us on arrival to go through the basics like the beautiful aga, heating and few other bits and pieces. The property was spotlessly clean on arrival and had all the amenities you could ever need, the location is fantastic for walking or just a short drive away are some delightful sights.

After Richard had left we noticed a lovely home made cherry cake (very enjoyable by the way) also as it was Easter we’d also been left an Easter egg each and some treats for the dogs. The beds were comfortable, the space was cozy and plentiful, the cottage was relaxing, stylish and felt like home and we really couldn’t of asked for more.

I would have no problem in recommending the cottage to others, it’s a stunning place and has everything you could ever need. We plan on returning in the future and can’t wait to book again.”

Thanks again,

Royal Oak Cottage is a beautiful and characterful cottage.

It has been renovated stylishly throughout whilst maintaining its charm and character. It is perfectly located in Withypool which is a small and pretty village. It has a good local shop for provisions and has Post Office service. It is a great location for walking – both from the doorstep and other walks are within easy driving distance. It is about a 1-minute walk from the local pub (Royal Oak Inn), which offers good pub grub. You don’t hear anything from the pub at all – so no worries there! Lots of nearby villages also have pubs which are worth visiting. Emma and Richard were great hosts – very friendly and helpful and left ‘goodies’ for us on arrival, which were much appreciated. They kept in touch and even visited when we had an unexpected power cut (due to Storm Henk) to check we were okay! Really kind and thoughtful people. We highly recommend this cottage. I doubt you will find anywhere better if you are visiting this area, so just stay here! Amy and Roland, Clare, Crawford and Raffles the dog.

Had the most wonderful Christmas at Emma’s lovely house.

She could not have been more accommodating, which when trying to plan for a toddler a dog and some elderly relatives was super helpful. The house was cosy warm, beautifully decorated and had some luxurious extras to make our stay special. Will definitely be back!!

Emma and Richard were excellent hosts

Their house was warm and welcoming. The kitchen was a good size and well-equipped. The garden was great for sitting in the sun and nicely kept, there were SO many little birds singing.

The bedrooms were super comfortable and the bathrooms really clean and spacious.

We had a very enjoyable stay.

Beautiful house and gardens. Lovely welcome package which was greatly appreciated, especially the added extras in the kitchen and bathrooms.
Dog towels were very handy as we were unfortunate to have some very rainy weather.
Would highly recommend

You will not regret staying at Royal Oak Cottage

Everything…. Could not fault one thing! It was an amazing experience, one with history in the Second World War.

A beautiful comfortable home which had everything you needed, nothing was spared. Even had a home made cake and bread made for us, and a bottle of a beautiful Rose +. Thank you, Emma, you were an amazing host.

Our trip to Withypool will be remembered with warmth and enthusiasm to visit again.
