  • "Small and cosy cottage."

    Very convenient for Wells. We enjoyed our stay in The Paddock. We had lovely meals at Burcott Inn. The only suggestion we would make is to put a welcome book in the cottage explaining everything you need to know in the cottage and things to see and do around the area.

  • "Thank you for a warm welcome from everyone at The Burcott Inn ,not forgetting Barry the Boxer."

    The property was perfect for touring the local area, the food was very good in the pub and we would recommend anyone to stay here and explore Somerset. Wells was really lovely although Glastonbury was a bit on the odd side.

  • "Lovely little cottage for couples."

    Even though the cottage is behind the pub, very quite and relaxing. Pub meals are a must, as delicious and homemade, the chips are amazing!! Barry the Boxer is also a resident in the pub but very friendly and just wants to say hello

  • "Nicely situated with views over the fields but close to the pub also."

    All four accomadations were occupied and everyone was friendly which added to the holiday. Barry the boxer dog says 'hello' to everyone and is very good natured, not a problem if you are not a 'dog' person as he is well behaved! The accomadation is compact but perfectly adequte and well stocked for two people for a week. A bench outside or somewhere to sit out other then the pub garden would be an advantage. Excellent home made dinners served in evening at the pub. Would deffinitley recommend.
