  • "Lovely property, really friendly welcome from owner and the lady who manages the property."

    Needed somewhere fully wheelchair accessible, and this didn't disappoint. The Duck next door is great - though you need to book in advance. Had several lovely day trips out to the coast and a nice day at Wookey Hole (which is accessible other than the cave itself, but they have a virtual tour for those unable to go in). Would happily return.

  • "The bungalow was just what i wanted for my elderly perents."

    On arrival we were greeted by the owner, Milk in the fridge & a pack of Bakewell tarts made for a most welcome cup of tea & a bite to eat. Accommodation is lovely with everything we needed for a perfect stay.

    The family were the perfect guests it was a pleasure to have them stay We were close friends by the end of their stay I would certainly welcome them again Property Owner

  • "The property was clean and warm."

    The kitchen area was well stocked with utensils and crockery. It bungalow was set up for someone, who had mobility issues - such as a wheelchair user, however this did not detract from the homely feel of the property. We would certainly stay again when we visit the area.

  • "The bungalow was perfect!"

    So well equipped, clean, warm and comfortable. My dad has limited mobility so it was great for him and there was plenty of room for him to roam about. There wasn’t much to do in the village so you would need a car to get out and about. There is a pub within a minutes walk but if you want to eat there you have to book well in advance, even in the week. But Worcester really is a great little place to stay, it comes highly recommended from me and my family, and the owner was lovely.

  • "The bungalow was well equipped and had everything we needed."

    Having the disabled facilities meant my husband could enjoy his time there. Nice quiet location but was able to visit lots of places. The owner was so kind and helpful and would definitely go again. Would recommend it to anyone wanting to visit Somerset and needed disabled facilities.

    Spotlessly clean with everything you could possibly need.well adapted for people with mobility issues.wide doorframe and plenty of room for wheelchairs walkers etc. Very quiet rural location so really a car is needed. Would def recommend this bungalow to anyone xxxxxxxxxx

  • "Very spacious bungalow for our 90 year old zimmer using parents."

    The Wet room was well enjoyed and plenty of space in the kitchen. Quiet location but handy for Burnham, Wells & Glastonbury. We took bed rails & a commode and were able to accommodate these in the bedroom. If we went again we'd take seat cushions as we had to use the wheelchair cushions to get a bit of extra height. As we could only go out every other day, we did a lot of cooking in the cottage and did buy a small roasting tray for puds & lasagne & a pudding basin for puds & veg in the microwave. There was a slow cooker which would have saved us taking ours. We couldn't find a whisk and the tin opener had seen better days but overall well equipped. Plenty of towels and washing machine works well. wifi from owners bungalow a bit patchy as is phone signal on 3. We'd certainly go again and parents thoroughly enjoyed the 2 weeks we spent there.

    An amazing wet room. Anita met us on our first evening and made us feel welcome. Very central for a lot of places to visit lots of nice food places. But we loved the King William Inn in Catcott a village about 5 miles away. Lovely food and friendly staff. The Duck pub is really close but it gets really busy and we weren't able to get a table. All in all a lovely break.

  • "Although the property itself was fine, the outside areas left a lot to be desired; the parking area was unsightly and weeded over, more like the back of a building site."

    The recreation area at the back of the property was covered in dead leaves, the table and chairs had to be thoroughly cleaned before they could be used and the BBQ was very old and rusty and was full of water so could not be used! This was a bit let down which could easily be put right with a bit more care and attention.

    The owners could not have been more helpful to me. The Swan pub at the end of the road served excellent food reasonably priced with its staff giving the best of service that one came to appreciate over the course of the holiday. All that remains is to thank Sykes and everyone else for making a nice weeks holiday for me after having such a traumatic past year.

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.
