  • "Lovely welcome, this was the perfect property for our short break, we loved the size of the property, easy access etc."

    The beds were a little soft for us but that was minor. We managed to get to various locations we wanted to visit, Clarks Village, Sanders Garden centre, Glastonbury, Wells, Bath and we used the Newbridge park and ride in Bath, which is perfect as you head back out towards Wells, Glastonbury and back to Burtle, we found it a brilliant location for easy access to the Mendip hills for scenary, all around Somerset ia very picture perfect. If you need the M5 that was easy, we used the Frome route home and A303 and that was a lovely drive from Glastonbury, Yeovil, then past Stonehenge to Basingstoke and the M3. We will want to stay here again in the future and can see in the visitors book many families come back year on year. Have a great Christmas.

  • "As a family with two wheelchair users our needs are quite specific and it is difficult to find accommodation that adequately meets those needs."

    Russet bungalow provided an excellent match for our needs, was well furnished, thoughtfully adapted and a comfortable home for the week. The lack of WiFi was a little disappointing and to help us to rest and relax a dishwasher would have been a nice addition! However, these were minor issues and we would be very happy to return for another stay in the future.

    The owner is very welcoming and lovely and made our stay even more enjoyable by leaving us a welcome at the cottage on our arrival of cake, milk and lovely flower arrangements. The cottage is set in a quiet and peaceful place in the countryside and was the ideal stress free holiday. It's disabled facilities are second to none and is suitable for wheelchairs users. There are lots of places to visit and the cottage is central to all. We will definitely be back and are looking forward to it already. We would rate it as a 5* place to stay. Thanks again to Anita, the owner, for another wonderful stay and we will see you again real soon.

  • "This is the second time we have stayed at Russet and cannot fault it."

    It is a very comfortable and wheelchair friendly bungalow and is situated in a quiet and pretty location out in the countryside. For the personal touch, the owner put flowers in a vase, milk and muffins were also left for our arrival which we really appreciated. Would highly recommend a stay here as it is central for all the places you would like to visit. There is also a local shop approximately 2 miles away for anything that you may need and the staff are really friendly. There is also a pub/restaurant located to the right of the end of the drive called The Duck which serves excellent meals if you didn't want to cook. We will be back again soon.

About the location

BURTLE

Glastonbury 8 miles; Burnham-on-Sea 8.5 miles; Wells 13 miles.

The little Somerset village of Burtle is one of several small communities dotted around the Vale of Avalon within the famous Somerset Levels, and is set beside one of the Levels largest water channels, which drains into the Huntspill River. The Somerset Levels are an Area of Special Scientific Interest, a low-lying marshy area which stretches from the Mendip Hills as far as Taunton. The levels are crossed by a number of drainage channels called rhynes, where willows are grown for basket making, providing unique conservation area, rich in wildlife. The flat landscape offers great cycling routes, with lovely walks to be had across the rhynes. Burtle is an excellent touring base, with the town of Street, famous for the Clarks Shopping Village, and the historic town of Glastonbury, well known for its Abbey, Tor, and festival, both only a short drive away. Alternatively, Wells Cathedral, the beaches at Burnham-on-Sea, Weston-Super-Mare, Wookey Hole and Cheddar Gorge are all easily accessible. This really is an ideal location for a fascinating and enjoyable holiday at any time of the year.
