The cottage was lovely and setting was beautiful. Pictures do not do this cottage justice. We can't wait to go back!
Miss Brown, Slough, March 2013
The cottage is beautiful, the photographs online and in the brochure do not do it justice. The owner, was there to greet us, lit the log burner and made us feel very welcome.
Mrs Blackman, Chichester, March 2013
The cottage was very spacious, clean and tidy. Bedrooms were all made up on arrival with lovely fluffy, bathroom towels for us all to use. The kitchen was very well equiped and had everything we needed. The hot tub was great, and the gardens lovely. Situated in the Somerset countryside - it was a lovely relaxing holiday for us.
Mrs Chapman, Hemel Hempstead, February 2013
We loved the hospitality of the owners and the fantastic property. A very relaxing holiday with every attention to detail being catered for by the owners. Although we had our holiday in the snow the garden was beautiful and I can only imagine the beauty in the summer. If you are planning a large family holiday you will not be disappointed if you stay here. Great value for money.
