"Great little cosy chalet for exploring Somerset."
Very clean and well equipped for self catering. Warm and comfortable. Best of all stocked with lots of tea, coffee, milk, eggs butter, jams...even a lovely bottle of red wine and gluten free bread and cookies. Superb. Nice pub, Cider farm and restaurant walking distance. Train station close by for direct train to Bristol for a day. All big supermarket very close. Chalet 5 mins from motorway junction...great location for exploring a big county.
Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. Glad you enjoyed the goodies. Thanks also for leaving chalet so clean. Best wishes Linda and John Property Owner
"The chalet was very clean and comfortable."
It is ideally situated for all the attractions of Somerset by road and rail. There are many local attractions and places to eat. The welcome pack was a nice surprise and local information very helpful. Would definitely recommend to others and likely to come back again.

"We enjoyed our stay at Wisteria Chalet."
Warm and comfortable and very well equipped with plenty of storage. Well located for both the Somerset levels and the coast. Also close to M5 and supermarkets. Friendly hosts who provided basic essentials including milk, bread and eggs!
Hello Jeanette. Sorry I am so late in replying to your feedback. Thank you so much for your lovely comments and for leaving the chalet so pristine. Have a very happy Christmas. Linda and John Property Owner
"Great location great place to stop friendly owners who are there if you need ..."
Great location great place to stop friendly owners who are there if you need them and give good advice on places to visit but give you plenty of space if you don’t Would highly recommend staying here This is our second time staying here will be back for a third time
Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. Look forward to seeing you again. Best wishes Linda and John Property Owner
"Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property, it was convenient for both coast and country and equipped to the highest standard."
Very good value for money and the welcome pack provided by the owners Lynda and John was very much appreciated.
"Very welcoming host."
Extensive welcoming pack and many extras left. Lots of books and DVDs made available. The fan was a real bonus in view of the high temperatures. All in all a real home from home.
Thanks for your feedback. So pleased you had a lovely holiday. Thank you for leaving the chalet so tidy and clean. Linda and John Property Owner
"A real home from home."
Well equipped, spotlessly clean and comfortable, a lovely place to stay. Linda and John are lovely hosts and the goodies they provided on our arrival were just what was needed after a long journey. Ideally situated for lots of tourist attractions and close to the beaches as well.
Thank you so much for such lovely feedback. It is so important to us that guests have a great holiday experience. Thanks for leaving the chalet so clean. Best wishes Linda and John Property Owner
"Whiseria cottage is the best we have stayed in."
John and Linda were very friendly and helpful. On arrival we found milk, eggs, bread, wine and a variety of goodies, such a lovely surprise. The cottage is in a lovely setting and we shall be recommending it to our friends.
Glad you enjoyed your goodies. Thanks so much for the lovely feedback and for leaving the chalet so clean and tidy. Best wishes Linda and John Property Owner
A very warm welcome including a bottle of wine, bread, eggs and milk. Great location. Short drive to the beach. Pubs within walking distance and Richs cider farm a few hundred yards away who make lovely breakfast and roast. Perfect
Thank you for your lovely feedback. So glad you enjoyed your week. See you again soon hopefully. Regards Linda and John Property Owner
"We have had a lovely break at Wisteria Chalet."
A lovely quiet place. The welcome pack is amazing! The owners were away on holiday while we were there but they left an extremely comprehensive list of things to do etc. The 'Shed' is unbelievable - filled with games, books, freezer - all you could want and more. We would certainly go back.
Thank you for you lovely feedback. So glad you had a lovely holiday. Best wishes Linda and John Property Owner

The owners were lovely. On arrival we were greeted with chocolates and wine. Everything we needed was there. Would definitely recommend.

"Lovely cosy little chalet,very handy as a base for a lot of attractions."
Shops pubs and supermarkets nearby. Had one problem: very quickly dealt with by the owners who live next door. Really enjoyed our stay. Would definitely recommend it.

"We had a wonderful holiday at Wisteria Chalet, the amenities provide were more than adequate for our needs."
This is a lovely quiet location with good access to all the local attractions and we are giving serious consideration to coming back again.
Thank you for your lovely feedback. So pleased you had a good week. Happy Christmas! X Property Owner
"A cozy chalet that was in a great location."
Well equipped for a short break. We'd definitely visit again.
Thank you for your lovely feedback. Hope to see you again. Happy Christmas! X Property Owner
"It was a lovely clean cottage and very friendly owners that went out of there way to help you would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a lovely peaceful holiday."
"Had a lovely 6 night stay, Linda met us on arrival and couldn’t do enough for us, some lovely touches when you’ve just done a 3 hour travel, cottage was plenty big enough and had everything we needed very clean and tidy, an added bonus for the Netflix so my little one could watch tv."
Would definitely recommend not to far from beaches around. Will be back soon Thankyou
"A very warm welcome from Linda to a cosy very warm chalet."
A lovely collection of goodies provided and all basics there from tea coffee etc to wine and shortbread. This has to be the best equipped self catering accommodation we have stayed in from USB points in the bedside lamps to hand held food mixer. The chalet is not ultra modern but very clean and comfortable which suited us perfectly. We were able to store our bikes in a lockable workshop which also housed a fantastic selection of books. Linda and John have thought of everything. Ideal cycling area and also easy access to National Trust properties by car. 10 minute walk to pub and Richs cider farm and very good restaurant. Will definitely return.
"Arrived at Wisteria Chalet after a long drive & received a lovely welcome."
Linda & John are lovely hosts & can't do enough to make you welcome. Wisteria was fully equipped & really comfortable. If you are looking for a holiday where you feel comfortable straight away & is in an area where there is plenty to do then this is the place.
"Thank you for a lovely holiday, Linda and John are on hand if you need them and very friendly."
The chalet has everything you need, in a lovely area, handy to visit many places in Somerset. Would certainly recommend and will be visiting again sometime
"Clean and friendly, we had a lovely time."
"I stayed at Wisteria Chalet with my 87 year old mother while she was getting a new bathroom."
The chalet was perfect; warm and cosy (it was February) ground floor accommodation and a walk-in shower. The chalet was equipped with everything we needed and more, some welcome groceries and a bottle of wine. We both slept well on the bed and the sofa bed. Chalet owners were very helpful and friendly and the location is good for visiting lots of places by car (e.g. Wells, Weston-Super-Mare, Cheddar, Glastonbury). We didn't use the separate games room and library but it looked great. All in all I would thoroughly recommend Wisteria Chalet.
"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.
So sorry bad did not suit your backs. I empathise with this! We can certainly provide a firmer mattress for anyone with back problems. Perhaps Sykes could include an opportunity for customers to state this on the booking form. Property Owner
"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.
"Our hosts went above and beyond our expectations the Chalet was so great and ..."
Our hosts went above and beyond our expectations the Chalet was so great and the equipment far out weighed our expectations it was really brilliant the best equipped accommodation we have ever been too
"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.
"Linda and John were very nice people, and the chalet is in a good spot for a relaxing time."
We were made very welcome.
"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.
"Thank you to the owners who cleaned it thoroughly and made us feel very welcome."
"It was lovely place to stay very clean and comfortable."
Close to all areas of interest would go again.
"Great place photos did not do the place justice !"
! Ideal place for getting about . Friendly owners could do no more for us ! Would go back and recommend staying here !!
"The whole experience was brilliant."
The chalet was perfect warm very comfortable and everything you could need. There was plenty of essential food and milk also a lovely bottle of wine ready waiting for us. The owners were more than friendly and helpful.
"Wonderful little chalet, bigger inside than it looks with everything you could possibly need and more."
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.
"This little place was just what my daughter and I needed."
Peaceful relaxing yet everything we needed. Very comfy bed good hot shower. Fully equipped place. Lovely lady very welcoming. We loved it
"We had a very good week at Wisteria Chalet."
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.
"The owners were very friendly and welcoming."
We were delighted with the accommodation. The bed was so comfy. Everything we needed was there for us including a welcome pack of goodies . We will definitely recommend it and would return to stay again.
"Property had much more space than we anticipated , so many extras for everyday use whilst staying ."
wonderfully peaceful ,such pleasant host added to enjoying the Somerset Levels and surrounding area . Excellent value !!
"Beautiful little chalet cosy inside."
Small private garden with table and a bbq. There is a games room for you to use with small snooker table, football table , darts loads of board games to use plus an excercise bike if you want a work out. Not to far from Burnham on sea. , brean and weston. Would recommend a stay here.
"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.
"HAVE STAYED AT WISTERIA CHALET IN THE PAST IT IS LOCATED IN A NICE QUIET VILLAGE BUT WITHIN EASY REACH OF LOCAL PLACES TO VISIT, THE CHALET IS ALWAYS LOVELY AND CLEAN AND THE OWNERS ARE VERY PLEASENT TO TALK TO, THE ONLY THING THAT COULD BE IMPROVED ON IN MY OPINION IS THE SIZE OF THE TV IN THE LIVING ROOM AS MOST PEOPLE WOULD EXPECT A SLIGHTLY BIGGER SCREEN SIZE THESE DAY'S ALTHOUGH THIS WOULD NOT PUT ME OFF BOOKING THIS PROPERTY AGAIN AS OVERALL IT IS EXCELLENT."
"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.
"The chalet had everything needed for a comfortable stay."
"A very comfortable chalet, with all the comforts of home, very well equipped with all essentials."
A lovely welcome pack to arrive too, which was very much appreciated. Located only about 2 miles from Burnham on Sea, & in touching distance from all other resorts. We had a jammed packed week, but a nice quiet "home" to relax in when we got back to base. Would recommend to friends & family.
"Wisteria Chalet was a lovely holiday chalet and the goodies in the fridge were entirely unexpected."
We were made to feel very welcome by the owners. The chalet is conveniently placed near the motorway junction yet far enough away from it not to be heard. We spent the week driving to places connected with my ancestors and also visited other family members but there are lots of other attractions all within easy reach which unfortunately we did not have time to visit.We can thoroughly recommend this gem on the Somerset Levels.
"Many extras and a warm welcome."
Quiet location, easy access to tourist areas, owners helpful and friendly but not intrusive.
"A lovely chalet situated very close to all the attractions of Somerset."
Very friendly and welcoming hosts. Lovely location with easy access to many interesting and beautiful places.
"If your looking for a quiet location after a day out."
this is a place to stay. The hosts were very welcoming. Everthing you need is in the chalet. The adjacent barn has a pool table and a darts board. If you get a little bored in the evening.
"Mr & Mrs James are a charming couple and made us very welcome."
They also did their best to deal with any minor problems we encountered.
"The owners were a very nice couple and went beyond their duties to help us."
"Cottage had everything you could possibly need and that was a great help as we were on bicycles and limited with luggage."
The welcome pack was superb especially the cream tea!
"The cottage had everything we needed and more and was definitely value for money."
It was also central to several places that we wanted to visit so an absolutely ideal location. The hosts were very welcoming and accommodating.
"Wistera cottage was beautiful."
Very clean very well equipped. It's in a lovely quiet location and it's so easy to visit places from there, close to M5 but still in the country. Has a lovely garden perfect for relaxing from the crowd. It's 7 miles from Western and plenty of food shops in driving distance. The best self catering accommodation i have stayed in. Will definitely be back to finish visiting the sites. All in all felt like my little home for the week lovely
