Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. This is a fantastic place to spend a quiet few days. A very welcoming host and really nicely presented accommodation coupled with good access to the local area - not to mention a great pub just up the road. Sept 2011.
  2. The cottage was lovely and clean and had all the amenities required. Linda was very welcoming and made us feel at home - nothing was too much trouble. We particularly enjoyed the vicinity of the cottage, it was handy for so many lovely places. Would defiantly recommend a stay. June 2011.
  3. This is the second time we have stayed at The Old Cowshed, the standard of accommodation was as high as our last visit, when we were the first people to rent the property! Linda is a very welcoming hostess, doing everything possible to ensure an enjoyable stay, and her cream teas are a must. She also provides a great deal of information on the local area, together with maps,which makes planning days out much easier. June 2011.
  4. Clean, comfortable, well equipped and v.spacious with excellent, helpful owner. April 2011.
  5. Good views from the upside down property (with bedrooms at bottom). Sept 2010.
  6. The property was excellent and the owner was a delightful person to meet. The area was good for getting to places we wanted to go. Parking our vehicle was good infact we had a wonderful holiday and we would recommend the Old Cow Shed to anyone. Sept 2010.
  7. Peaceful with lovely view from the upstairs dining area. Well equipped. Road directly outside property but not busy. Garden was not private for those using the cottage but pleasant sitting out area. June 2010.
  8. Superb barn conversation, done to a very high spec and with superb facilities. Has good access to local products and an excellent pub no more than 15 min walk. June 2010.
  9. The Old Cowshed was beautifully furnished to a very high standard and was very clean, spacious and bright. The kitchen was very well equipped, everything you could need and more. It was in an excellent location, on the Somerset/Dorset/Devon borders, so ideal for accessing both North Somerset coast and the Dorset and Devon Coastline. Linda, the owner, was so helpful and even baked us fresh scones on our arrival. May 2010.
  10. Exactly like the pictures on the website, clean and bright, with all mod-cons. April 2010.
  11. Good views. Everything we needed was close at hand. Oct 2009.
  12. Lovely quiet location with garden available for children to use. Extremely hospitable owner living next door who was extremely helpful with local knowledge. She provided home baked bread and biscuits, also apples, which was a welcome touch on arrival. Very clean accommodation with plentiful supplies of crockery etc and the provision of all household necessities avoided the need to take things like washing up liquid, hand soap etc. Oct 2009.
  13. Beautiful cottage in lovely surroundings, close to local amentities. Everthing you could ask for in the cottage and more. Sept 2009.
  14. The property was conveniently located for a wide range of attractions. The accommodation could not be faulted and Linda, the owner, was extremely friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Highly recommended. Aug 2009.
  15. I would recommend The Old Cowshed to anyone. It was very clean and we wanted for nothing. July 2009.
  16. The property is beautifully furnished, and extremely well equipped. Welcoming touches such as freshly baked bread and cake, and fresh flowers, were much appreciated. We were also lucky to be the first people to book the property! The owner was extremely helpful and friendly. She also takes orders for cream teas, home-made cakes etc. which are beautifully presented, absolutely delicious, and great value for money. July 2009.
