Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Had a great time despite the weather. Our labrador Max loved the garden as had loads of room to run about or he would just sit there for ages. Would recommend for anyone particularly if they have a dog as there are plenty of walks locally or further afield. July 2012.
  2. A very comfortable cottage in a quiet location. Beautiful garden and a tennis court which the kids really enjoyed! Local pub could of been closer and dog friendly, but still had a relaxing time and would certainly visit again. April 2012.
  3. We enjoyed our weekend in this cosy cottage. It was well equipped and the owners were very pleasent and welcoming. The garden was lovely and fabulous for our dog. We could relax knowing it was fully enclosed. Had a good nights sleep in the cosy bed. We would definitely go back again. March 2012.
  4. This was our 3rd visit to this cottage and it has become one of our favourite haunts. The accommodation is perfect for two people and a dog, in fact the garden is doggy heaven! The owner is very friendly without being intrusive and the village has a very relaxed feel about it. March 2012.
  5. Great cottage ideal for visitors with dogs, owners very nice and very helpful. Hope to use again. March 2012.
  6. A lovely retreat for a couple of nights. Ideal for the dog too. Feb 2011.
  7. In a good private position, dog friendly, comfortable and quiet. Feb 2011.
  8. A very comfortable ’cottage’, everything there, in a lovely part of the country. Oct 2010.
  9. The large enclosed garden. The location is ideal. Complimentary products allowed us to settle in right away, ie. milk coffee washing up liquid and fresh flowers were lovely. July 2010.
  10. The garden was exceptional. We were looking for a cottage with secure accommodation for our 2 dogs and this exceeded our expectations. July 2010.
  11. Excellent peace and quiet; well-fitted kitchen. Unusually good digital TV. Good main bedroom. Spacious garden - liked the birds and rabbits. July 2010.
  12. A very well maintained cottage with lots of privacy and a very secure large garden for dogs of all sizes. The additional small details that the owners add to the property and garden are very thoughtful and a wonderful touch. I would thoroughly recommend and will be visiting again. June 2010.
  13. The cottage was lovely but my favourite bit was the large private garden - we live in a top floor flat in the middle of a town. June 2010.
  14. Very dog friendly garden. May 2010.
  15. We have stayed at the property several times and find the owners most welcoming. April 2010.
  16. Had every thing you could need, clean and tidy, furnishings of a high standard, milk and flowers nice thought. April 2010.
  17. The quality was very good, nice bed, new tv and dvd. Garden was big and secure for the dogs. Lovely orchard and quiet country lanes to take the dogs. Very nice owner, replaced the faulty cooker immediately. Gave us a good bottle of wine for the inconvenience. March 2010.
  18. The location was excellent for exploring Somerset, Devon and Dorset. The cottage and gardens are in a beautiful, tranquil setting. The layout of the cottage is perfect and flows very easily. Everything was very clean. The bed was very nice and comfortable. The owner left a pint of milk and flowers in the cottage - much appreciated. We had a wonderful long weekend there and would definitely stay again. Feb 2010.
  19. Orchard Barn was ideal for a weekend break and we can’t wait to go back. We received such a warm welcome from the owner upon our arrival. The offer of picking daffodils from the orchard to bring home was a very thoughtful touch and very much appreciated. On our arrival we found milk in the fridge so that we could have a very welcome cup of tea which again was a lovely touch. A wonderful holiday and a charming lady. March 2009.
  20. Excellent welcome, all amenities and appliances as described. Bathroom a little on the small side. Rapid attention to minor defects by owners. One sideboard draw stuffed with leaflets and brochures, needs a good sort out!! Aug 2009.
