Our first family holiday to Exmoor - We all had a lovely time at Emmett's Grange and would like to visit again. Lots still to do, but the walk along the river at Simonsbath is beautiful (even in the rain!). Hope to visit again to enjoy Exmoor on horseback too.

Constant wet weather, was no tether, no hill was too high, no beach too far, we walkerd rather than take the car!

Lots of rain, but good food, good company and dog walks. The lovely house and views also made our holiday. Thank you, Lucy for letting us stay at Emmett's Grange - a lovely old house set in beautiful scenery.

Lovely holiday at Emmett's Grange with the family and pregnant wife (baby Sebastian). Enjoyed sleeping, sleeping and sleeping and eating far too much! Loved the local welcome hamper too.
November 2015, The Johnson Party

We have enjoyed a wonderful time at Emmett's Grange to celebrate Ian's 60th Birthday. Friends and family came from Oxfordshire, Lincolnshire, Wiltshire and even from Hanover and Germany.

We had a fabulous birthday party in the formal dining room and loved spending time in the drawing room with the fire. Emmett's Grange is a beautiful house in a stunning part of Exmoor. Thank you for looking after us so well and sharing your lovely house with us. We hope to come back again soon.

P.S. Loved the welcome box!
November 2015, The Turner Party

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us, we cannot wait to tell family and friends about you and this fabulous estate.
June 2015, Mark and Jan

A glorious setting for the ‘Famous 14’s’ annual outing. We enjoyed the buttercups glowing and the Exmoor ponies prancing on our walks. A lovely home full of interesting objects and we enjoyed Lucy’s explanations of the family ancestry. Thank you.
June 2015, The Steward’s, Norwich

Wonderful house, beautiful area. Much enjoyed by all of us. Enjoyed the Wendy House! Many thanks from the 13 of us.
April 2015, Michael

A truly wonderful stay exploring both the fabulous estate and nearby towns and beaches. Something for everyone. Thanks to the family for their welcome and for the “guided tour”. The house is a treasure in itself. We had a great time.
April 2015, Julie King and Family, London

Another wonderful week at magical Emmett’s Grange, our third visit – enjoyed some old favourites and some new trails. Our dog Nectar says he feels very at home in the kitchen (for myself, the decanters were a joy to fill and empty…).
January 2015, Graham

What a lovely desk and view as I write this! Thank you for sharing this gorgeous house with us all. Aren’t we lucky?! We’ve had a university reunion here (class of 1991-4) and it’s been the perfect location and venue. We really loved the contrast between the old and the new. Fantastic conservatory and we all played the piano. It’s been great.
October 2014, Jane and Friends

A very, very special place indeed - many thanks and warm wishes to you and Lucy and family.

A really wonderful week spent relaxing with friends and family. The house is so special. So comfortable, a beautiful location, I love the different living spaces. A lovely talk to you Lucy as we said goodbye. Next time we’ll talk more I hope!

Emmett’s Grange has been the magical ending to a fortnight of mixed emotions. Having so suddenly lost our adorable little spaniel Lily and then experiencing the joy of our daughter’s wedding, we cannot begin to thank you enough for your kindness and generosity. We have immensely enjoyed the relaxation of the tranquil surroundings, the sounds of birds and watching and spending time with your beautiful horses. It has been an absolute delight to stay in your exceptionally beautiful home; so full of elegance, charm and character, along with the touch of your own personal belongings, family photos and history which has been such an added bonus and very much enjoyed.
You are such a lovely lady, so friendly, warm and smiley and so welcoming. We certainly look forward to seeing you again. Cannot wait to tell all our family and friends of the last few days.
Jan and Mark

Thanks very much again for a very wonderful and worthwhile time at Emmett's Grange

What an incredible place and what a way to spend a wonderful 50th celebratory weekend. Thank you so much. Whilst the other watched the World Cup we caught up on the hunting memories.
June 2014, The Rawsfords

We’ve all had a wonderful weekend away as a family group to celebrate Kate and Fester's 70th birthday.
Lots of lovely room to spread ourselves and lots to keep the younger members happy, especially the tennis court and games barn. Many thanks.

Emmett's Grange has been a fab place to celebrate Keith's 60th birthday. We have all had a wonderful time! We had great fun playing table tennis with the smoke machine on. We did 'Walk 1' and there were beautiful views from the hill opposite the house. Would love to come again. Lucy, Tom and family were very accommodating and made us all feel very welcome. Thank you.
January 2014, Laura, Martin and Family and Friends

Emmett's Grange has been a wonderful meeting place for our families to celebrate Christmas together. We really appreciated all of the decoration and sampled every room on different occasions during the week. The conservatory provided a beautiful, tranquil backdrop for us all to relax and unwind without any interruptions from technology. We were also very grateful for your invite to join the atmosphere of the Boxing Day hunt - it was a wonderful experience watching you all set off. We wish all the best for 2014.
Christmas 2013, Gaynor, David, Audrey, John, Ceri, Mark, Robbie, Pam, Simon, Florence and Maggie

Beautiful house, beautiful children, beautiful lady.
November 2013, Ambler Green and Tilsley Family

Emmett's Grange has been the perfect place for our annual family get together. From the wild beauty of the moors and the starlit skies, expeditions up hill and down dale and early morning deer - to the football pitch right outside the front door - it has been perfect for all. And, in the coldest Easter for 50 years the Aga and log fires have been very welcome! Thank you James for your patience with the children who now all want to live on a farm. And also for Duchess' daily antics with the sheep, which kept us all amused.
Easter 2013, The Ross and Leith Family

A perfect place to get away from it all.
- Sally and Ross

Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home. The landscape is simply wonderful.
- Anke and Andres Kohl, Steifut, Germany

Thank you so much for giving us such a happy and memorable visit. The setting is quite breathtaking and so peaceful.
- Tania Granville

This is an excellent place from where to explore Exmoor; because if the weather fails you, the house will not. Full of history and lovely rooms, it's warmth still retains some of the sublime spirit of the moors. I love it!

Thanks so much for welcoming us back to Emmett's Grange. It feels just like home; can’t wait to come back next Christmas with all the Cutting crew.
Fondly, Liz Cutting

A lovely relaxed break, fantastic place and wonderful to be here.
- Zara and Cris Duncan

A very comfortable and welcoming stay in a magical home and location.
- Pam and Grahame Genthere, Chepstow

While travelling to the South West
We sought to find the very best
So it was not exactly strange
To find ourselves at Emmett's Grange!
- Judith and Ray Waters Farnham, Surrey

Thank you for having us to stay
We truly don't want to go away
For even my cello
Was sounding most mellow
All of us will be back some day.
- Sarah Thistle Beds

Fantastic location. A very nice property, comfortable with everything you could need. Even the rain seemed more acceptable.
August 2012 - Mr Andrews

We came to Emmett's Grange to celebrates a 70th Birthday (another one for the house!) and 20th wedding anniversary. We had a wonderful time together over the last three days desire getting so wet on Friday (all part of the fun) but seeing sunshine on Saturday. It's been a wonderful, magnificent break for all of us - and the dogs.
