The lovely gifts that Serena left for us were a real joy to receive and wholly appreciated. We have stayed in several holiday cottages over the years and this was definitely one of our favourites.

    The cottage itself is so welcoming, warm and homely, we loved it. It is set in a beautiful rural area, so peace and quiet was abundant and yet we were only approximately 2 miles from Taunton, a large town which again we loved. The lovely gifts that Serena left for us were a real joy to receive and wholly appreciated. We have stayed in several holiday cottages over the years and this was definitely one of our favourites. The cottage was very well equipped with everything you need for a perfect stay. It is extremely comfortable and in a beautiful environment. We will definitely be staying again and recommend this luxurious cottage to other couples wanting a rural retreat and not far from amenities. Thank you Serena for making us feel so welcome.
