    The cottage is pleasantly convenient for the amenities in Winscombe and the owner lives on site and is helpful. Location is excellent as a central hub for exploring. Challey's Cottage is a three star cottage, not unduly costly, but is on the uncomfortable end of three stars with a sofa that is uncomfortable and two hard wooden 'easy chairs' that give it a good run for its money. The beds were hard. We got used to them after a couple of days. We did not expect an intrusive splash page when logging onto the WiFi, nor for it to appear so often during a logged in session, nor did we expect the cottage handbook to tell us to ration our internet use and that it was monitored for overuse by the owners. When another cottage was occupied by guests we were sure we were contending for WiFi access. Often our connection dropped out. The other thing we did not expect was to have it suggested that we bring towels during the pre-arrival phone call. Towels were supplied, though one kitchen towel/teacloth was rather on the sparing side. It would not take much to update the cottage and make it a comfortable base to return to, nor to get it a further star. It needs the owners to stay in it for a week. Then they will have a better understanding of the needs of their guests. Positive points: Location, peace and quiet (unless the wind blows the M5 soundtrack your way), helpful owners, dark skies (would like to be able to switch the automatic outside lights off to see them better), FreeSat TV Negative points: Comfort and facilities. Yes, we could have mentioned it at the time, but there can have been no scope for enhancement except by refurnishing. We had our pillows upgraded. You can only ask for just so much Engineering Work: We accept the the BT engineer had to fix the internet service. it improved after that visit, but remained unreliable.

    Our hosts were v friendly and helpful, lending us their own (larger) saucepan when we needed one and offering use of their own personal freezer. Farm setting and location v peaceful, lovely walks nearby and beach and other fun sites a short drive away. Cottage was big enough for our family of four, cosy and mostly comfortable and helped us have a restful break away from home. Table tennis facility, while not v roomy, was v much appreciated. A couple of wooden spoons and one more well-sized saucepan ;) and matching lid would make the kitchen facilities even better. Cutlery drawer, shower handle fitting and shower hose could do with a good clean. The bedrooms might benefit from new pillows as the ones provided were pretty tired and misshapen. Quibbles that are hopefully v easy to fix and were ones we chose not to spend much time thinking about while we were there.
