Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Very peaceful and comfortable, beautiful surroundings, we hope to visit again. Sept 2012.
  2. Great cottage, a lovely location for a restful break. Great for dog walking, Charlie loved it. Great amenities near by so you don’t need to go far for essentials. Will go back if we get a chance. July 2012.
  3. This cottage is everything you want if you require peace and quiet in a stunning location. The property is particularly suited to dog-owners, with a safe garden and a large field at the bottom of the garden. Highly recommended. July 2012.
  4. Peaceful location - makes excellent base for visiting the numerous attractions in Somerset, East Devon & parts of Dorset. If going on Horse Drawn Barge, Tiverton booking is essential since they get busy with coach parties. June 2012.
  5. A lovely quiet location but close enough to amenities and walks in the area without too much travelling. March 2012.
  6. This is our second time back to Potters Cottage and we are planning a third as well, truly fantastic cottage, location and village. Feb 2012.
  7. The property was full of character and in a peaceful location. Very clean and everything you could need. Location was very good for walks, the north and south coast. Taunton was brilliant for shopping and very good restaurants in the vicinity (Pink Garlic indian restaurant and the Monkton Pub). Oct 2011
  8. Property was clean, very comfortable. Bathrooms top condition, as well as kitchen. Oct 2011.
  9. Beautiful cottage and location. Very quiet and secluded for those wanting privacy. Wished we could have stayed for longer. Walks right from the door through woods and fields. Not too far from Taunton. June 2011.
  10. Beautifully renovated cottage, quiet location, very relaxing. June 2011.
  11. The cottage came up above expectations on quality, location and cleanliness. This resulted in a quiet and relaxing break. June 2011.
  12. A wonderful time was had in this wonderful little cottage. Set in a lovely country location but at the same time close to all you need in Taunton. The near by pub does excelent food but it might be worth you booking ahead. If it’s a relaxing time you want you couldn’t fail to have it at Potters cottage. It’s a case for us of when we go back not if. March 2011.
  13. Character and generally comfortable ambiance. Feb 2011.
  14. Quiet location, thatched cottage with woodburner and underfloor heating. Country walks right from the door, with lovely view of the valley and a sun trap patio area. Feb 2011.
  15. Very warm and cosy and clean. Jan 2011.
  16. Clean, cosy and quiet. Well equipped. Dec 2010.
  17. Fantastic welcome, lovely property, very cosy with log burner and underfloor heating in the winter. Nov 2010.
  18. The cottage is well renovated with modern facilities but still maintains its original character. Very cosy yet spacious with a welcoming atmosphere. Lovely rural setting. Great place for a relaxing holiday away from it all. Oct 2010.
  19. Clean and comfortable. Oct 2010.
  20. We have stayed at this particular cottage several times before, so knew what to expect. Many other holiday makers have found the same here at Potters which only goes to show how much care the Pullman family have taken to ensure people will want to return and enjoy their hideaway in such a lovely part of the country ! Aug 2010.
