This is an ideal property for couples who want to escape the pace of modern society. The accommodation is small, yet charming and secluded; it has everything that you need to enjoy a weeks stay. The log burner is a real bonus and brings the room to life. We spent a lot of time exploring the Somerset, Dorset and Devon area, so the location was perfect.

Mr Tideswell, Alfreton, February 2014

Superb attention to detail in every way, wonderful friendly and helpful owners, Can't speak too highly of it.

Mrs Drake, Salisbury, January 2014

The owners were friendly and lived next door. South Petherton has a very good pub serving excellent beer and cider and food within 5 minutes walk. It's also a good base for the coast, Somerset levels, Wells, Glastonbury, Dorchester and Sherborne. The cottage was nice and warm.

Mr Hooper, Ludlow, November 2013

We loved the privacy. The cottage was very cosy and beautiful, romantic.
