  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Cottage."

    The excellent reviews on the website are well deserved. The property is in a stunning location and Sarah and Mike couldn't have made us more welcome. The extra 'touches' (i.e. the lovely cake and toys left for the children) were very welcome and made our stay perfect. The Cottage is furnished to a high standard and was beautifully clean on arrival and well-equipped. I simply cannot recommend it enough. Many thanks to Sarah and Mike for a lovely holiday.

  • "The Cottage didn’t disappoint, we found it to be as beautiful, comfortable and clean as advertised."

    We enjoyed and appreciated the home made cake and tea that was lovingly setup for us. The surroundings are amazing, very good to wind down from work stresses. We had the honour of meeting the owners, very friendly and helpful made us feel at home. The kids loved seeing the sheep especially the lambs. The weather wasn’t great so we had the pleasure of cosying up to the wood burner in the evenings. If you’re looking for a calming getaway I definitely recommend you give the cottage a try

    Owners very busy with lambing, but were always on hand if needed, because we have been before we didn't really need them, so left them to do their busy schedule.

    Excellent Wi-Fi signal. Yummy cake & afternoon tea set up on the table. Very comfortable place & friendly owners. Loved the log burner on chilly nights. Would highly recommend.

  • "This cottage is in a superb location, around 20 minutes from Dunster Castle, Watchet, Minehead and other beautiful locations."

    It offers outstanding panoramic views of hills, trees and wildlife. The cottage itself is homely, relaxing, and has a wide variety of DVDs and books in case of inclement weather. The kitchen has all the equipment required for an ‘away from home’ visit, and we were welcomed by the hosts warmly in person but also found a homemade Victoria Sponge waiting for us and a tray arranged with tea things. Delicious. The bed was comfortable and our room included a large flatscreen Smart TV, great for a morning cup of tea and watching the News. The bathroom held a large corner bath which included an overhead shower. The cottage is homely, rustic and comfortable - everything we required for our holiday.

  • "Would definitely recommend The Cottage to anyone - perfect place to break away from the day to day and explore Somerset!"

    Third time staying at the cottage and was perfect nothing to fault whatsoever. Sarah and Mike are always really welcoming and make you feel at home. Lovely cake on arrival always goes down a treat - along with the biscuits for the dogs! Really enjoyable stay at The Cottage and already looking into possible dates for our fourth stay next year.

  • "Great cottage stay on a working Sheep farm."

    Comfortable, warm and home from home. Lovely welcome from Sarah and her family. Stayed for 9 nights over Christmas and New Year. Weather wet so it forced us to do jigsaws, watch a selection of provided DVDs or read and chill. A cake to welcome us and regular catch ups on WhatsApp to check we were ok. Good walking from the door. Ilfracombe just over an hour away. Eden Project about 2.5 hours was fantastic. Watchet on the doorstep about 15 mins. Minehead and Dunster again about 20 mins. Loads to keep you occupied. Would highly recommend

    The additional bathroom was very useful as our party consisted of six adults and 2 dogs. The location was quiet and peaceful. apart from farm noise, which we all expected. We were able to communicate with the owners easily and they sorted out problems very quickly. There is so much to do in the area, we merely scratched the surface. We really would consider returning to the property.

  • "Our second stay at this cottage."

    Our first break away after lockdown restrictions lifted and we had a fantastic break again. The cake baked for us with a tray laid for a cuppa set the scene. A staycation in England that never disappoints. This time on the working farm we saw the new born lambs and the bluebells were starting to flower. We were lucky with the weather but this area has so many things for you to do and see whatever.

  • "We were at the Cottage over the Christmas period, 23/12 - 30/12- we had originally planned to go to Wales but with all the uncertainty and cancellations due to Covid 19, we had to change our plans very quickly."

    I have to say i am so glad we did. The Cottage was perfect for our Christmas break, working for the NHS i hadn't really had a break for a few months, so i needed total relaxation and down time. Being on a working farm there is some noise with cockerels, sheep and pheasants but these are all good natural noises and great the see a working farm. The cottage was very clean, all on one level and very well equipped, we took all the shopping we needed as we knew it was remote. The nearest Tesco is about 8 miles away. The track to the Cottage is very narrow, and does get icy, but there are numerous bags of grit on the sides of the road. The owners were very friendly and although lived next door, we did not see them much other than feeding the sheep, but were on hand if needed. The home baked cake was a welcome treat too. We don't have children, but i could imagine a holiday with little ones in the cottage would be perfect. It was very dog friendly with biscuit treats for our fur kid. We managed to get around and explore the local area (covid safe), the woods, the reservoir, and a trip to Woolacombe and Croyde beaches, this was lovely on a cold fresh day, just perfect to blow away the cobwebs. The fire was very welcoming on return to the cottage, (as was the underfloor heating) on a cold day with a bag of logs from the owners for £2.50 I would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage.

    The cottage was just as perfect as our last visit in 2017. Nothing could be improved. We have again experienced wonderful weather during our week commencing 9th October - sunny all but one days, light winds making 11-14 degrees feel warm.. Maybe we are just lucky! We couldn't recommend this accommodation more highly, and this is based upon many years of careful selection of properties in England all areas, and Scotland, particularly the inner and outer Hebrides..

  • "Really fantastic cottage."

    We went with a range of ages from 5 - 60 and everyone enjoyed it. The cottage has everything you need. Even though it rained a lot when we were there we still found plenty to do without driving for more than half an hour. Our favourites were Dunster castle and walking around Quantox hills. Dulverton and Exford are worth a visit. Woods restaurant in Dulverton is particularly nice. Lots of good places to walk and have afternoon tea. The only sight negative was the narrow country roads, but that’s what you get in that part of the world. Really we didn’t pass many cars coming the other way and we went in the height of summer. This is a great location if you want to enjoy some piece and quiet too. Amazing views from the garden and kitchen. Mike and Sarah were nice and helpful people too.

  • "Just fantastic."

    We were not expecting such a beautiful place , when booking anywhere for the first time you of course have hopes but photos don,t always tell the full story but in this case The Cottage exceeded anything we could have expected. A tea tray all ready for us on arrival along with a delicious home made cake was just the start of a wonderful stay. Considering that we were the first guests "post lockdown" the welcome from our hosts couldn't have been any warmer though correctly socially distanced. I have read other reviews regards the location and the narrow country lanes but we found the location to be as peaceful as it is beautiful and the lanes - well when in the country you kind of expect it. The Cottage was perfect for us and the enclosed garden a safe environment for our dog which allowed us to fully relax and the pictures really dont do justice to the finish and furnishing inside. We though the photo album showing the conversion from farm building to cottage was a nice touch too. Unfortunately the nearest pub was, as expected, still closed due to Covid 19 however the Cider Farm was open and within easy reach by car . :) We would definitely visit again if the chance arises.

  • "We all really enjoyed our stay down in Somerset at The Cottage."

    The Cottage was extremely well equipped with everything we could possibly need. From opening the front door we felt warm and welcome. Surrounded by beautiful views of the countryside and the peace and quiet, even though based on a working farm was a real treat for us. Mike and Sarah, the owners, were really welcoming and approachable, the homemade cake and tea ready to make was definitely most welcome after a drive down from Merseyside! The attention to detail in this cottage is superb and well worth the visit. Our two dogs loved the underfloor heating and loved to spread out in front of the fire after a good walk. Even the night sky on a clear day showed it's beauty. We felt sorry to leave after one week wishing we could stay longer. We are already looking at possible dates to return! Thank you for a lovely holiday!!

    The cottage is much bigger then the photo and very well laid out. Although its on a working farm you wouldn't know as its very clean, quiet and only lovely sheep. The owners are lovely and we had plate of fresh cakes to greet us on arrival made by the son. Milk , sugar and tea bags were laid out to go with the cakes. Every attention to detail was met even down to a handbook on dog walks and a bono bone for our dog. Plenty of good books and an array of dvds for the wet days. Everything you could possibly need from a kitchen , although we went every night for food at the Valiant Soldier as good home cooked food. We loved this stay and has to be our best accommodation so far. There is a woodburner although we only lit it as we have one ourselves and love a fire. Start up wood is all ready for you and bags of wood (£2.50) can be found next door. The property has underfloor heating so lovely for dogs . Fenced in so dogs won't escape. Lovely surroundings can be enjoyed from the the garden . This property was a real gem of a find and enjoyed by all in our party.

  • "Although we accepted it was a working farm being woken by a cockerel outside out window every morning from 4."

    30 am became very irritating. We actually left a day early because we could not stand it anymore. We had 5 adults sharing the cottage and all were overtired and frustrated over it. The farm is also quite remote with very narrow windy roads and a good fifteen minutes drive down these lanes to the nearest small shop and pub. The cottage itself was lovely and the hosts very welcoming. The flies from the sheep pens outside the door were also a slight nuisance.

    Thank you for your feedback. We try our best to ensure our guests are comfortable and have the best experience at our property. Unfortunately we were not made aware of the cockerel disturbing you. However, we would of considered moving it to a different location if told. The property sits within the countryside so narrow roads are expected. To be exact, the property is approxminately 7 minutes from the nearest pub and shop. We ensure the pens are clean and tidy and they are also empty during this time of year. We apologise for the flies but with the recent weather this is something that is out our hands. We hope you enjoyed your stay at The Cottage and we hope to welcome you back soon. Property Owner

    Nothing is too much trouble and the cottage is beautifully finished and presented. On arrival the tea set was waiting on the kitchen table along with a large homemade cake, which was beautiful! If you don't mind being down a quiet country lane in a fairly remote location adjacent to a working farm this cottage is probably for you. If you enjoy peace and quiet in a stunning tranquil setting with very few passing vehicles and having only very friendly hosts and nature as neighbours the cottage is definitely for you.

    Trying to accommodate the needs of 3 generations on a family holiday can be challenging but The Cottage met all our needs and more. We had so much space in the open plan living area which meant that we could all be together whilst preparing meals. The kitchen was very well equipped and there was so much space to pack away groceries so it didn't feel as if you were living out of shopping bags for the week which often happens in holiday accommodation. When taking our parents with us on holiday, we look for accommodation that will meet their mobility needs (accommodation on one level, shower cubicle, etc.) and The Cottage met all their needs too. The owners were so welcoming and friendly - knowledgeable about the local area and made excellent recommendations for day trips. A very tranquil area with lots of walks from the cottage itself and wildlife in abundance. We were very comfortable, had a great time and hope to visit again. Lots of great destinations close to Treborough too. Highly recommended.
