    • “This is a beautifully located cottage which offers a very high standard of accommodation. It was spacious but cosy and the view from the cottage was lovely. We highly recommend it and would certainly return.”

    Mrs Stewart, Bedford, September 2015

    • “Beautiful Lodge and lovely location. Would definitely stay here again if returning to the area.”

    Mrs Vant, Hockley, August 2015

    • “The lodge was fantastic, the view was amazing and it was fitted out with everything we needed. It was perfect.”

    Miss Brown, Bournemouth, August 2015

    • “A fantastic lodge with everything you could need on a self catering holiday.”

    Mrs Wickers, Rotherham, July 2015

    • “We had a fabulous holiday, the log cabin is very large and airy with no expense spared in furnishings and all the little extras that make a holiday that bit special. The owner was great and you can tell she has great pride in her accommodation and this shines through in the quality. It's so nice to find somewhere away from the crowds, cars and artificial lighting. Here you are surrounded by fantastic views and rolling fields, but close enough to the towns and tourist attractions. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting that break away.”

    Miss Gregory, Westerham, October 2014

    • “You feel like you are at home, surrounded by Alpacas and with a fantastic view.”

    Mr Mack, Gland, July 2014

    • “We enjoyed our stay very much. The property is in a scenic area, very peaceful and calm, and local to all the places we wanted to visit in Somerset. The owners were very helpful and accommodating. In fact, we were welcomed on a visit to St. John the Baptist Church in Pilton to watch him and his companions play Church bells in the Bell Tower. It was such a treat and made our stay all the more worthwhile.”

    Ms Fasheh, California, April 2014
