Previous visitors' comments about Idlers Cottage:
Complete privacy without being far away from anything, and the friendliness of the owners and local area. The cottage itself is perfectly formed and is a lovely place to spend time.

Beautiful cottage in a beautiful village. The owners were friendly and welcoming and the cottage was exactly as described with no hidden surprises.
Mrs Simpson, Manningtree, September 2012
The cottage was very cosy and extremely comfortable. The owners helpful but discrete. This is a great base for exploring South Somerset, many beautiful houses and gardens and some charming towns and villages all close by.
