  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Field View."

    The pictures do not do this place justice! It is a lot larger than we thought it would be, and was the perfect cosy bolthole for our Christmas stay. Mike and Nicola had decorated the space for Christmas and left us eggs from their chickens (delicious!) along with other supplies. Very thoughtful! We loved popping in to say hello to the horses and meeting the lovely Molly and Lily, who interacted with our dog so nicely. The bed and sofa are SO comfortable, much time was spent lounging and watching tv. Honestly, we had the best time and are looking forward to come back next year! Thank you so much Mike and Nicola!

  • "The cottage was very clean and the bed was very comfortable."

    The garden was the right size for our dog and was very safe and tidy. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you might need to cook a meal. The kitchen was lacking in cleaning products. It would be an idea to have a mop and bucket, and a clean sponge for the dishes and some J cloths with some kitchen spray. We really enjoyed our stay and will be rebooking in the future.

    Thank you, cleaning products purchased! Property Owner

    It had everything we needed (apart from kitchen tongs) and was so comfortable. The bed was the best ever! And the hosts were friendly and informative, giving us great ideas of where to go and what to see. I'd HIGHLY recommend staying in this gorgeous cottage.

    Thank you v much for your feedback, kitchen tongs on next shopping trip!! Mike & Nicola Property Owner

  • "The property was lovely and comfortable."

    Bed was so comfortable with quality bedding and plenty of towels provided. Good shower and kitchen well equipped. Welcome pack was excellent and the owners were on hand if we needed anything. Lovely setting and it was nice to experience such peace and quiet. A very relaxing holiday. A couple of more comfortable chairs to sit in the garden would have been welcome. Otherwise we thoroughly enjoyed our stay , as did our greyhound Lottie, who loved the spacious garden. Thanks to Nicola and Mike who were there if needed and very friendly , but unobtrusive.

  • "What a gem!"

    The cottage is located surrounded by countryside. You have wonderful views, beautiful birdsong all day, incredible sunsets & we were even lucky enough to see deer in the field twice during our stay! It's the most lovely place to relax, unwind & get away from it all. The cottage itself is just perfect! So well equipped, comfortable & clean throughout. That fireplace is stunning. The owners, Nicola and Mike, are just so lovely, so friendly & we enjoyed chatting with them during our stay. And meeting their gorgeous doggies too. It's great they're just next door & on hand if you need anything, but equally they give you complete privacy whilst you're at the cottage. We were so lucky with the endless sunshine whilst we stayed, but the cottage stayed so cool inside which was great for our elderly springer. We had such a relaxing few days & although we explored different places in the area, or was equally just at nice to sit in the garden & absorb the views. We couldn't recommend Field View enough & we will definitely be back to stay again

  • "What a lovely cottage and in a beautiful location."

    We have family living in Taunton so this was just perfect for us, but it would also be very convenient for the many National Trust properties in the area, Exmoor, other attractions and seaside towns.

  • "We had a fantastic stay the accommodation was lovely."

    The owners were extremely helpful as we had a problem with the oven but it was resolved quickly. Literally the only things we'd say would be we would have preferred a washing machine rather than a dishwasher as it wasn't used and a washing machine would have been more useful after muddy dog walks!!.Also the bins being in cupboard was annoying but that's literally it. We loved our stay ❤️

    Some neighbouring noise but not intrusive. Great base for exploring Somerset, Devon and Dorset. Cottage had everything we needed. Beds a little firmer than our liking but still comfortable.

  • "First of all can I say what a beautiful little cottage Field View is, we have really loved the peaceful surroundings and all its comforts."

    The welcome pack is a great touch which was bliss as we didn't have time to have a quick shop on our arrival, therefore, we were able to have scrabbled egg on toast our first morning with a lovely cup of tea. We haven't done much exploring although we intend to in future trips, we used the cottage as a base to visit our newly born granddaughter in nearby Horton. Upon reading previous customers feedback, from what I could see all the feedback has been acted on and Mike and Nicola have thought of everything, all in all the cottage is perfect. We will definitely be staying again and will be recommending Field View to family and friends.

Welcome pack was extraordinary and we got spoiled with tomatoes from their garden and eggs from their hens. The Cottage was very cosy and clean. We enjoyed dinner in the garden while watching the sunset behind the fields. Lakes and woodlands are nearby and the beach is only a 40 minute drive. Wished we could have stayed longer.

  • "Loved the location, the views and the tranquility."

    Welcome pack was brilliant and host was friendly. Just a few touches needed to make it easier on a self catering manner. Please add wine glasses, gin glasses, soup and pasta bowls. Another pot to cook in and maybe a selection of up to date walks in the area, as some of the new Herepath trail is not accessible. Another chopping board, hairdryer a good pairing come culinary knife. Nitpicking but these are what we missed. Great spot and super quiet, just what we ordered
