    Your lemon drizzle cake on the table when we walked in was such a lovely touch. The cottage was warm, comfortable, wonderful fireplace in the evening and piano to play on. Great beds for a good nights sleep too. The village is equally warm and welcoming! We had a fantastic week exploring the area during 1/2 term. Thank you.

  • "Church Farmhouse is fantastic as are the owners Deborah and Trevor."

    We have stayed in numerous cottages but this was the best by far. Our 4 grandkids played hide and seek in the cottage and there are so many rooms with nooks and crannies that sometimes they gave up looking. There is a lovely private garden with seating and a BBQ perfect for star gazing in the night sky. Everything was spotless and the amenities were endless. The cottage is so full of character it was like going back in time. A lovely village shop and local pub 2 minutes walk away. Try the farm milk vending machine with many different flavours about 2 miles away. Don't forget to take your own bottle from the cottage. Thank you so much. Sonia and Ian

    Attentive, friendly owners who provided great recommendations on things to do - in writing before we arrived and verbally during our stay. House is set in beautiful countryside with lots of walks from the doorstep and about 30 minute drive to the beaches. House itself was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Note low door lintels for those that are tall.

    Were, a pizza slicer, baking trays and a clothes airer. I slipped on the top step of the steep stairs and pulled tendons in my foot and hobbled for two days and still feel the ache now. The stairs are very steep and carpeted. I wonder if anything can be done to stop other people hurting theirselves?

We made use of the village shop and the pub (good Sunday lunch). Chard, only 4 miles away, is big enough to have several supermarkets as well as local shops. We used the cottage as a base to visit several coastal towns and Exeter; it was just an ideal location for us. The owners were friendly, efficient and helpful.

    Found the cottage and Sykes through an online search. Booked in this particular location to be close to my Aunt and Uncle's country home for a weekend of wedding festivities for my cousin. Winsham is lovely! The shop folks were wonderful the three times we bought goods there, the church beautiful. We missed going to the pub, and wished there had maybe been another pub with longer opening hours, but otherwise we were charmed by the village. The cottage itself was beyond all expectations though very well described and pictured on your website. It was SO comfortable, SO beautiful, SO clean, and the owners SO welcoming. Our only regret was that we had three major events each day for the wedding celebrations in a village nearby so couldn't spend as much time at the cottage enjoying all the comfort as we would have liked. My brother, sister-in-law and niece from America were with us and were SO impressed. My husband and I, who live in London would like to rent the cottage again and bring his adult children along for a quiet family weekend. If we book another cottage or rental sometime the first place I will look is Sykes. Payment, confirmations, directions, etc. all top notch. Thank you!
