Riverside Cottage, Malmsmead

Riverside Cottage sleeps four people. There is an entrance hall which leads into an open-plan kitchen, dining and sitting room. On the first floor are two bedrooms - one double room (Queen sized bed) and one twin room - and a bathroom with shower cubicle (please note, there is no bath).

Situated next door is the The Lorna Doone Arms at Malmsmead, the cottage shares the lawn and driveway. Off-road parking situated to the rear of the cottage in the car park. The Lorna Doone Arms is closed during the winter season, from October until Easter.

The kitchen is well-equipped and fitted with dishwasher, fridge, freezer, microwave and electric oven with ceramic hob. Other equipment includes toaster, kettle, a variety of kitchen utensils, cutlery, crockery and glasses. A television is provided in the living room. Wifi is available in the property. A cot and/or high chair is available, please request these items when making your booking to ensure they will be present for your arrival.
Please note, Malmsmead is situated in a valley on Exmoor and therefore mobile phone signal cannot be obtained.

Electricity and heating costs are included in the price of your accommodation. Riverside Cottage has central heating and radiators are fitted throughout the property. Bed linen, duvets, blankets and towels are provided for your convenience, but please bring your own beach towels if you wish to take towels with you on day trips. A small amount of tea, coffee, sugar, milk and biscuits are provided to ensure you can have a hot drink as soon as you arrive. Cleaning materials such as washing up liquid will be present in the property. One or two toilet rolls will be provided.

The cottage is situated next door to the Lorna Doone Arms, which is a licensed cafe serving food, drinks and teas. The grassed area in front of the property is used for an outdoor seating area for patrons of the cafe, however a table will be reserved for your use on request. The garden is bordered by the river on one side. When the Lorna Doone Arms closes in the evening and through the winter (October to Easter) the garden will be available for your sole use. Off-road parking is to the rear of the property in the car park. Guests can pull into the drive in front of the cottage to load and unload, but this is also the main entrance to the Cafe so we ask that vehicles are not parked here for long periods of time in the summer season.

Dogs are welcome by prior arrangement (maximum of 4). A supplementary fee of £15 will be added to your invoice per dog. Please do not allow you dogs on the furniture or upstairs and do not leave them alone in the property at any time.

Riverside Cottage is strictly non-smoking.
