December 2021, R & M

We had such a lovely, tranquil stay – just what we were after! An escape to the countryside, pre –Christmas away from our busy lives. It’s such a cosy and homely cottage – and really does remind me of the cottage from the Xmas movie The Holiday. The prosecco and scones were a lovely touch, along with the Christmas décor! Thank you for welcoming us to Somerset – we would happily stay again!

We have had a wonderful stay, so relaxing. Thank you so much for the cream tea and prosecco which was lovely. We really appreciate the care and attention that went into having the cottage ready for us, at short notice too! It made our break very special, and we felt very safe that everything was so clean. A truly wonderful cottage, with so many lovely things to do in the area. We will return home very much rested. Thank you so much…..

The Cottage was very warm and cosy and extremely clean. Everything was of a very high standard of quality, and the bed was super comfy. The owners had clearly gone to a lot of effort to make our stay a good one, which was much appreciated. It was lovely having the wood burner lit for us upon arrival. The Cottage is in a super location for things to do in the area with fabulous walks and good pubs. We would love to return.

Top rating or full 5 stars for each and every category. Everything was as described on the website, great secluded location, clean, neat and tidy, quiet, ideal for couples romantic getaway, or even singletons like myself wanting tranquility from the everyday hustle of the city. Cannot fault it in any way. Awesome.
