  • "This is a little gem of a place to use for a base to explore the surrounding countryside and coastal areas."

    You can experience the friendly welcome from your hosts.

  • "This cottage was great, no real complaints, I give it almost top marks."

    The only downside for us was that the bed was uncomfortable FOR US, to others it would probably be ok. We both have dodgy backs and very rarely find comfortable beds in holiday accommodation and that is the only reason this cottage lost a mark as far as we were concerned. The owners have thought of everything, from welcoming goodies to a barn full of entertainment. Would definitely recommend it.

  • "Just had an amazing week."

    John and Linda were really great. I'd spoken with John about key pick up, and during our conversation it came up that we were celebrating our anniversary. We missed our 25th last year due to Covid, so we were looking forward to a break and getting away. On arrival we met John and Linda who wished us all the best for our anniversary and Linda had baked us an amazing cake to celebrate.The wine went down well too! Such a nice thought, thankyou once again. There were also other essentials such as tea, coffee, milk, eggs,butter and bread. Got to say the photo's don't do this place justice. Everything you need is there, and more. There's even a great selection of books to choose from, and table football, darts and snooker in a separate building. The chalet is in a great quiet location, and wow it's great for sleeping. We loved it and hope to get back some time. You can't go wrong staying here.

  • "Wisteria chalet was perfect and Linda and John were superb hosts."

    Lovely friendly helpful people. The "goodies and essentials" left for us were greatly appreciated especially the wine, scones, jam and clotted cream. Yum yum. We walked, cycled did a lot of sight seeing, ate a lot of ice cream and had great meals out. A great holiday all round.

  • "Wisteria chalet was everything we could ask or."

    The owners, John & Linda were so friendly & welcoming. There was ample parking, pretty outside space & the chalet itself was bright, clean & very comfortable. The owners had provided a welcome pack with tea, coffee, milk, bread, eggs etc, plus a cream tea & a bottle of wine which we thoroughly enjoyed! This really was a home from home with everything you could possibly need being provided.

  • "The welcome at Wisteria Chalet was superb!"

    Linda and John did everything to make our arrival completely without stress. We could settle in with a cup of tea (everything provided!) a cream tea (everything provided), plus bread, butter jams ...everything so that we could stay in the chalet for 24 hours without venturing out for basics. There is nothing to criticise and everything to praise. We have NEVER been to a self-catering accomodation where the provision of household items, has been unstinting, thoughtful, generous and PERFECT!!! We will return...again and again, for our holiday was brilliant...made so by our ergonomic environment, geographical environment, and the atmosphere of respect, cordiality and warmth which surpassed any expectations we might have had. I would recommend this Wisteria Chalet experience to everyone...but not too many please as we want some space for our next visit. On a sour note. We were not impressed at having to pay a 'booking fee', when I am certain that owners of properties also have to pay a premium to be listed? Shame on you Sykes!

  • "As other people have said, the photos don't do this chalet justice."

    It is quite roomy with plenty of space to put things. The owners and friendly and helpful and the collection of toys in the shed space, for want of a better phrase, kept our toddler very entertained. Well located for exploring different parts of Somerset, the area itself is very quiet. Very much recommended.

  • "Wisteria Chalet is an ideal base for exploring the North Somerset area."

    Less than 30mins by car to the seaside resorts of Burnham, Brean and Weston and about the same to Cheddar and Wookey Hole. It is undoubtedly one of the best equipped holiday homes I've stayed in with absolutely everything you might need. Additionally the owners Linda and John provide you with a most generous welcome pack, including a cream tea and a very nice bottle of wine. If I were to return to this area again this would be top of my list of properties in which to stay.

    Spacious living area and comfortable bed. Owners provide basics such as eggs, cream tea, wine, teas, coffees and a warm welcome then leave you to it ☺️. WiFi was poor until we found a "booster" plug in a drawer under the TV. All in all a lovely place to stay and close to everywhere.

    The property is in an ideal location and was perfect for us as we planned to cycle around the area. The chalet is well equipped with everything needed for a relaxed self catering holiday and we were delighted by the "welcome goodies" which awaited us on arrival. The owners were friendly but not intrusive. If we travel to this area again we will definitely check to see whether Wisteria Chalet is available.

  • "Wisteria Chalet was a lovely place to spend a week."

    Very well equipped and provisioned. The hosts left a cream tea, wine,milk, bread and eggs for us. They live next door so on hand if anything is needed but respected our privacy. The chalet was very clean and had a very good shower. It is in a great location for accessing great places and walks. There is a train station 1.5 miles away and Bristol, Bath and Taunton are all easily accessible. Our only slightly negative comment was the WiFi was not very strong and only worked in one area of the chalet - this could be remedied with an extender in the chalet.

  • "With a garden area at the front to sit out in and horses in the field behind at a distance my morning coffee was wonderful."

    When we arrived the cottage was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. A visit from the friendly owner to ensure all was well and our break had begun. Close to the beach we spent happy hours at Brean beach, owned by the National Trust it has the downs to walk on and even feral goats, who keep their distance. For those who want to travel further Wells, Glastonbury and Exmoor are in easy reach. The chalet was cosy and comfortable. Being on bottle gas the cooker had a knack to getting it going, turn the knob, push the ignition switch at the end then hold in for a little while. We had a good week.
