"Lovely break, very peaceful and relaxing."
We enjoyed the hot tub every evening. Great take away from The Spice Merchant and generous portions for dinner at The White Horse Inn. Best beach for the dog was Dunster, Minehead was a bit further but worth the drive. You will need to take the car as it is tucked away, this didn't bother us - we enjoyed the seclusion.
"Lovely lodge, comfortable beds with plenty of room to accommodate 4 adults and 4 kids."
Had everything you needed for a weeks stay and was peaceful surroundings. Didn’t have the need to contact the owners as everything went smoothly.
"An absolutely beautiful lodge and site."
It was lovely to spend a week here. Everything needed and more is in the lodge and the hot tub was loved by the family. Site is peaceful and very well maintained and cared for. Just lovely.
"Shells cottages/lodges are an ideal place to stay if you want to visit that part of West Somerset."
The location is 10 and the cottages/lodges 10. The whole area when you first drive in is so well maintained and all the properties have parking and lovely grounds with plenty of seating and then of course there is the hot tub!! The hot tub is checked daily. We would like to say a big thank you to all the fantastic team who made us so welcome. You are Super Hosts - We are Super Guests - so now some small things (and they are minor) for those arriving late maybe just some initial shower products and there was no kitchen roll. The only other thing is to explain the rubbish more clearly (the toilet waste bags - disposal) and maybe a bin for recycling. If you have never been to West Somerset - You should so much to see and do. We had a great time - Thanks again.
"We really enjoy the Hazel Lodge, quiet, clean, well situated to visit around."
Smaller rooms than expected but for the 4 of us and the dog it was ok. We had a nice beginning of the year. Thank you to your team.
"Good value ."
..lovely property for family hol. Peaceful surrounds. Very conveniently located for nearby coves and bays, for beaches away from the usual busy hullabaloo. Good local convenience stores, takeaways, and restaurants. Only slight shortcoming was the fact that the layout of the upper floor means people in back bedroom have to walk through the front bedroom to get to the front door - which is fine for family with kids - less so for two couples.
"Lovely property, spacious and ideal for 2 families or couples as there are two separate spaces but also space to come back together."
Very relaxing and easy access to a local attractions. Everything there that we needed and we will return!
"We rented out both of the cottages with hot tubs and had a fantastic time."
The ladies who checked on the hot tubs each morning were lovely to us and we had everything we needed!!! We will be coming back next year for sure :)
"The advertised walk to a local pub was not possible due to the walkway being ..."
The advertised walk to a local pub was not possible due to the walkway being overgrown forcing one of us the drive, other than that we enjoyed our stay
"We had a very relaxed and comfortable stay at Hazel Lodge."
The lodge was well equipped with everything we needed and was in a great location for visiting the local coastline. The hot tub was huge and fitted all 6 adults in easily, such a bonus. All sad to leave after a week, 100% recommend.
"Lloyd was extremely helpful and responded very quickly whenever we had any queries."
The lodge was very comfortable and had many amenities, the large screen tv being great for watching the Euros. It even had Netflix.The hot tub was a very welcome extra and the log burning stove provided a cosy addition on a wet evening. The paths down to the village could do with clearing a bit as it would be nice to stroll down to the pub in the evening. The paths are currently very overgrown and difficult to negotiate. Other than that I can think of no negatives and we all had a very enjoyable stay at Hazel Lodge.
"Really enjoyed our stay, couldn't fault the lodge and facilities, very clean and equipped, and the hot tub was nice."
A nice location, albeit it on a hill so not suitable for boules, a couple of nice walks and bike rides. A couple of helpful items to add to the lodge would be a broom and a clothes horse (for when it's raining outside).
"Comfortable cabin, clean with good facilities."
"Hazel lodge was lovely- so clean and well-equipped."
Surrounding area was beautiful too and Lloyd was very accommodating.
"The lodge was absolutely ideal especially with the added bonus of a hot tub."
Everything was spotless. The only problem was having to walk quite a distance for the toilet and shower, maybe an outside facility would be an idea. Instructions for the dishwasher would have also been helpful.
"We had a wonderful stay at Hazel Lodge and the owner was very helpful in accommodating our use of the hot tub and late check out."
It's a beautiful lodge with great facilities that we would highly recommend.
"Great location, accommodation was excellent, friendly helpful staff om the phone and on site."
Hot tub was great, kitchen really well equipped for a holiday cottage, really enjoyed our stay.
"A beautiful well equipped lodge in gorgeous surroundings."
Gemma and Lloyd were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble for Gemma. She was extremely friendly and made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. We had lots of beautiful walks and our local pub was in walking distance and was lovely. The children had a great time blackberry picking and exploring. We will definitely be returning. Thank you for a wonderful, relaxing and memorable holiday x
"This was our second stay at Shells Cottages, We loved our stay at Hazel Lodge, we had another party stay in Ash at the same time."
The use of the gardens was especially brilliant with having 7 children with us. We enjoyed the hot tub in the evening :) Gemma did a great job of welcoming us and making sure we had everything we needed. We can't fault the accommodation!
"Fantastic spot, great accomodation, amazing hot tub."
Gemma was very helpful and attended to any requests promptly.
"The lodge was great, really clean and well equipped."
We spent most of the time in the garden so really nice to find all the outside loungers. The one problem we had with all the bedrooms was how light they are in the morning. We had hoped for a relaxing lie in, but we were up with the sun. Black out blinds definitely needed! (Also maybe some wd40 on the creaky doors!) We walked to The White Horse on the Saturday evening, really recommend it there.
He was more than happy to pop over and help us get in to the WiFi. The lodge was so clean and fresh. Would definitely stay again.
"The lodge was just fab for a family get together and to celebrate birthdays, ..."
The lodge was just fab for a family get together and to celebrate birthdays, everything was clean and easy and we were made to feel welcome by Gemma, would recommend this lodge to freinds and family
"The cottage was very comfortable and we were made to feel very welcome."
We'd be very happy to go back again.
"Perhaps warn people staying at the property that bin liners aren't provided?"
We checked r.e. washing up liquid and toilet rolls, but might want to add this to the info too?
"Amazing time at hazel lodge!"
! And gemma the host was so accommodating and helpful
"Gemma was extremely helpful and welcoming , we enjoyed our stay so much that we have booked up for 2 weeks next year"
"Has a party of 8 normally we would be tripping over each other but this wasn't the case has our accommodation was reasonably well spaced for a medium sized Lodge, The 2nd floor helped with this as the children had there own space leaving the adults to enjoy our well deserved relaxing break, The hot tube was brilliant and kept well maintained, The weather was a total washout but didn't effect our holiday what so ever, the Hot tube was well covered so we still had use of that My only criticism would be no Wi-Fi but I personally found that not a problem giving Us all some long over due family time and interaction."
I know the owners are looking into Wi Fi for the future If you do need some family bonding and a relaxing holiday I would strongly recommend this break to everyone, Best regards Mr Ferguson
"Brilliant place to stay, very clean and the owners were very friendly, lots to do within driving distance and plenty of walks to go out on."
Lovely pub just down the road and the hot tub was amazing.
"Lovely cabin, very comfortable, clean and well equipped."
Hot tub was brilliant and was used every night! Village of Washford small and can't walk to it but has a local spar and Tesco/Morrisons only ten mins away, couple of really good eating places too, had a lovely carvery at Washford Inn. Grounds of cabin lovely and well maintained but watch if you put washing on line at Hazel Lodge as under a tree and often gets messed on by birds! I would highly recommend any of the holiday homes at Shells cottages, had a super week!
"The lodge was fantastic, the Manager (Gemma) was extremely informative about the localarea and gave lots of tips for days out when we arrived."
The Lodge itself was extremely clean and exceeded our expectations. We will definitely be considering a return to the area.
