Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. An excellent property in a lovely spot. Very good for my family, including dog and mobility-impaired members. Walks from the door, rural views and wildlife to watch as well as a comfortable and well-furnished base for exploring further afield. June 2012.
  2. The location of the property was down a country lane. The cottage was clean and comfortable probably one of the best we have stayed in. Particularly liked have the 2 bathrooms. We went to the local pub the greyhound and had a lovely meal so really recommend this. April 2012.
  3. We have now enjoyed two holidays in this comfortable roomy cottage. It is well furnished and with all mod.cons. it even includes a dog bed! so required dog bedding only. It most likely is romantic as well, but I am very happy with the comfortable side of things!! The garden is a really good size with plenty of parking space, it is securely fenced for children and dogs. Oct 2011.
  4. This was the 2nd visit to this cottage! It is so peaceful there, we went with our children and dog and the garden is really secure. There are lovely walks right on the doorstep. We walked along the canal one day and took the kids fishing which they loved as well as driving a little further to the beach and Wokey hole, and the cider meal makes a lovely brew which is worth investing in, there is so much to do and no doubt we will b back, next time I may take the horse as there is stables next door and wonderful bridleways! Aug 2011.
  5. Superbly equipped cottage and more than met our expectations, actually feel it was under sold in the marketing. Ideal location with countryside all around and easy access to Taunton. Aug 2011.
  6. Clean and well equipped cottage ideal base for touring Somerset and ideal for dogs. June 2011.
  7. Brochure pictures don’t do justice to the views outside the barn. It was a paradise for the dogs. Highly recommended. June 2011.
  8. It was more than we expected lovely. Feb 2011.
  9. Well equipped, with modern appliances. Very quiet location away from main roads and near to good walks. Very dog friendly, with safe enclosed garden. Oct 2010.
  10. The situation of the property was ideal for anyone seeking a peaceful spot in the countryside and the accommodation itself was just first class. Sept 2010.
  11. The property was spotlessly clean. The bedding and towels were very clean and fresh and good quality. The cottage had everything we could possably want and then some, every eventuality had been catered for. Fantastic location. Sept 2010.
  12. The property was larger than we thought. There were many ’thoughtful’ extras ie. cake and provisions, handwash at every sink, all cleaning products available for use. Quality appliances and fittings. Aug 2010.
  13. Immaculate, well-equipped cottage to which the owners had added extra personal touches e.g. a cake on arrival. Very quiet. Beautiful walks with rare wildlife (e.g.butterflies) right from the front door. Access to M5 and Taunton appreciated. July 2010.
