  3. This is the most immaculate property I have ever stayed in. We were given a warm welcome. Love the cream tea. A lovely location. Peaceful. On a clear night one of the best starry skies I have seen in the UK. I shall definitely return. April 2012.
  4. It was home from home, very comfortable with everything you would expect and more. The location was lovely and peaceful, so perfect if you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle. We couldn’t fault the property, the 1 downfall was the weather but that is just luck of the draw. Overall a very nice holiday and would definitely consider going back. March 2012.
  5. A most welcoming holiday home just like home from home would not change anything all the personal little touches made our holiday perfect. Dec 2011.
  6. I was very impressed with the property , and the welcome gifts provided by the land lady, scones, jam and clotted cream as well as milk and fresh flowers. Everything one could possibly need was provided and we had to buy nothing at all. Sept 2011.
  7. The bungalow was absolutely spotless and the host was very friendly. Aug 2011.
  8. This property has to be one of the best bungalows we have ever stayed in, all of the equipment, furniture bedding etc is of the highest quality and in perfect order. The ensuite for both bedrooms is a bonus if sharing with another couple or children. The location was good for sightseeing and is just nicely tucked away from any hustle and bustle. A good place to book. July 2011.

  10. The location of the property was very good for the east Devon coast and Dorset coast.Plenty to do and see, the farm shop and cafe just outside Chard did great food using local produce worth a try. June 2011.
  11. Well presented home, bedrooms/bathrooms very high quality same with kitchen, plenty off road parking, you need transport to travel as you are well out in the country side. Local pubs serve great food and drinks very friendly. Owners were great host. June 2011.
  12. I should have looked the property up on Google Earth to get a better idea about where it was in the village, then we might have found it first time! Couldn’t fault the property and our two dogs were very welcomed. We also found all the local pubs brilliant for eating in, good home cooking. Loved the area and would go again if we can get a booking in before everyone else books it up! April 2011.

Everything was thought of down to towels & tea towels, soap & washing up liquids & cleaners, dish washer, plentiful hot water, new, clean fresh smelling sheets & duvets etc. Really good accommodation. Aug 2010.
  18. Everything you need for a holiday with dogs - enclosed garden, hardwood floors, easy-clean furniture, large field to exercise your dog/s - but also very comfortable for humans! The property is also kept so clean you’d never know people stay there with dogs. Aug 2010.
