  • "The property was spotless and uncluttered."

    Perfect for us. We had to remove a skiddy mat which was clearly a danger on the slippy floor and the bin bags were a poor fit in the cheapo bin but that was all that bothered us. Our little terrier had problems walking on the sharp gravel and hurt her paws a few times.

    Mostly very good just a few little things and it would be perfect as we are elderly the shower over the bath needed a grab handle on the wall plus some hooks to hang clothes on also everywhere we have been we took an hairdryer only to find there was one this time we didn’t and there wasn’t one not complaining just a few suggestions

  • "It is a very minor point."

    But some of the kitchen utensils need upgrading. The bottle opener for example is difficult to use. Wish I had packed my Swiss Army pen knife! It is a cheaply made item. Of more importance.... The bottom sheet on the bed on our stay was worn, uncomfortable and long overdue for replacement with a new one. Considering the premium price charged I think you need to up your game ..

    Perfect location for excursions and a very comfortable stay for us and our four legged friend. Hosts were incredibly friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again for a longer visit!

  • "We loved staying in Teal cottage."

    It was clean comfortable and had everything we needed, The property is close to Cheddar, which is a place we love so we went there one day. Also there is a pub within walking distance which was very handy. I would have preferred a walk in shower rather than a shower over a bath, but that is just me. Some people would be happy with a bath.

  • "Had a really lovely couple of days at Teal cottage regret not booking for longer."

    Very peaceful and whilst there are three cottages on the site you felt like you were the only ones there, with a very private feel to them. Tastefully decorated with everything you require for a short stay. A very cosy cottage. Whilst we never met the owners Andy and Ruth in person they were exceptionally helpful in terms of keys and my questions about pets. If you are thinking about staying here do, I doubt you will regret it.

    We weren't shown to the property as expected, overall we were very disappointed with our hosts we left without any contact with them. Very disappointed.

    We are very sorry we were not around as usual. My mother is ill in hospital and is unable to return back to the Care home where she has lived for the past 6 years. We have had to travel some 45 minutes each way to visit and are trying to find somewhere for her to live. unfortunately, unexpected problematic times can arise. I have had to , for once put family first. WE hope you were not too upset by this. Andrew and I do like to make our guests welcome, feel at home and have everything they require.
