We had a fabulous couple of weeks staying at the Cider House, very clean, well equipped, fantastic views & a great sized private outdoor space. Claire & Neil are lovely & made sure we had all we needed. We have to mention Poppy the dog - adorable & loves a belly rub! The geese & ducks were very entertaining. We sat outside some evenings & were rewRead morearded with 2 shooting stars & we heard some Little Owls over in the trees. No negatives about this place, easy access to loads of beautiful places.

This was our second visit. We loved the place for the quality of the accomodation, the cleanliness and it's quietness. The views from the patio were such that we were in no hurry to go out each day. The owners were lovely and always had time for a chat. We will be back in 2024.

To hurry about while here would really miss the point of being at Cider House. To paraphrase Churchill, 'a day away from Cider House is a day wasted'. It is a stunning property beautifully located and superbly presented. Clean and comfortable. We slept so well and benefitted from the clean air here. We had breakfast on the patio taking in the fabulRead moreous scenery rolling away from the cottage and didn't rush out for the day. Even after the post holiday blues faded, we fully intend to return in 2023. Hide

An absolute pleasure to stay at Cider House. The Blackdown Hills area has many lovely little villages to explore and great pubs to quench the thirst. Very comfortable, very quiet, ultimately giving the relaxation we wanted for our holiday. The owners must be proud of what they have achieved here. Loved it all.
