There were some nice touches, such as toiletries, cakes and fizzy wine. There were plenty of towels provided, including one for a dog if you bring one. You can see Glastonbury Tor from the property, the hot tub was a bonus, we had a great stay and we’ve recommended the bungalow to our friends.

    The bungalow itself was clean and comfortable, the beds were lovely and we all enjoyed a lie in both days. It was the perfect little getaway that we as a family needed, thank you very much.

    The house could do with a full length mirror and some door mats as we found that we were lacking these.

As mentioned by others the mattresses on the beds aren't great, and are probably due for replacement. The WiFi isn't great, and struggled at times. The settee and chairs in the lounge are practical as opposed to comfortable. The kitchen had everything you needed. The local pubs were okay, one doing food and one not, with neither open Monday or Tuesday. The cottage is on a quiet estate

    We have now replaced the beds and added an additional sofa. We will be looking at improving the WiFi as well. We hope to see you again soon. Property Owner

  • "Ideal location."

    The bed in the main bedroom was uncomfortable and the seating in the living room was not very comfortable either.

    Thank you for your feedback, we have added a new sofa and changed the beds. We hope to see you again. Property Owner

    Lovely to be able to walk to the local pub for great food. The owners could put some full length wardrobes in and bedside cabinets beside all beds. Full length mirrors would also be useful and the mattress in the double en-suite bedroom could do with being changed - think a spring has gone! We did have to clear out the sink in the en-suite bathroom as the water was taking a long time to clear, once we had done this all fine. The cleaners probably ought to check when doing cleaning after stay. Very sensitive heat detector in kitchen which made cooking rather interesting!! Some pictures on walls would make a little more homely and a blind in the double en-suite bedroom would be good in the window looking out to the road!!

    The welcome pack included lots of treats and the hot tub was an added luxury. Husband found the king size mattress too hard but I found it good for my back. The addition of bedside lamps would avoid having to get up to switch off the main light but couldn’t fault the accommodation otherwise. We ate in the village at the Ring O Bells and The Ashcott and would recommend both. Wells is worth a visit and the beach at Sand Bay north of Weston-super-Mare. We were unfortunately limited to visiting most of the local RSPB nature reserves as they either don’t allow dogs or only allow in certain areas.
