  • "The property host was so accommodating."

    The property was absolutely beautiful, and the hosts had anticipated so many kitchen needs with a huge range of utensils and crockery. The new garden furniture is wonderful. Everything in the home was high spec, beautifully chosen and aesthetically gorgeous! Crewkerne is a very dog friendly town with great walks and pubs.

    Very comfortable lounge with 2 sofas, superb kitchen layout with everything we would ever need. Both bedrooms were tastefully decorated with extremely comfortable beds - and honestly beds are a make or break part for us....these were great! Neutral laundry smell which was wonderful, and all linen and towels were clean and very good quality. Added bonus was a safe and private parking spot for the car. We will be happy to return

    It is in a good location , very close to shops and pubs etc. There are lots of things to do and there are a number of National Trust properties within a 15 mile radius. It is also close to the coast of Dorset and Devon. There are lots of places to walk in and around Crewkerne as well. Victoria and Andrew are excellent hosts, nothing was too much trouble. East Wing is one of the best places I have stayed in.

    The beds were comfortable with high quality bedding. The standard of the of fixtures and fittings was high, this was our first visit to the area and we benefited from the the owner offering kind and friendly advice on the area including key places to visit and dine. Being 71 years old the downsides was the distance from the driveway parking to the property entrance. We found the staircase very steep to carry cases and when booking had not appreciated the very busy road, associated noise both day and night or traffic pollution when sitting in the small courtyard space.

As the house was directly on to the main road (A30), traffic noise was noticeable. It would have been nice to have a wardrobe in the rear bedroom

We loved sitting in front of the wood burner in the evenings. Crewkerne was a great location to explore the area from. We loved walking along the sea front at Lyme Regis. We also visited Bridport and West Bay as well as NT property Montacute House. The views from Ham Hill Country Park were amazing. Our favourite place was the South West Deer Rescue Centre near Crewkerne. We had a wonderful morning there feeding the deer carrots and digestive biscuits and learning all about them. It was a brilliant experience. To visit there you need to phone and book in advance. We’d happily stay here again.

    It is clear that the owners have spared no expense to provide the highest quality in every respect. From the kitchen appliances and equipment to superb towels and bedding we could not have been happier. During a rather damp and dreary week of exploring the local area in early March it was a great pleasure to return to such a comfortable base and light the log burner. The local Waitrose store is just a few minutes away and provided us lots of 'goodies' which were easy to prepare in the lovely kitchen. There are several eating places and pubs in Crewkerne but we only ate out once, preferring the comforts in our 'home from home'. There is private off road parking at the rear of the property. The owners live on site and are happy to help with local information and any problems that might arise. If there is any criticism it is not of the property but of the busy road that passes in front of it. The traffic noise is rather intrusive, particularly in the morning and evening. We must stress that there were just two of us and we were not unduly troubled by this. We slept in the lovely rear bedroom which overlooks the garden and was silent. If both bedrooms were needed, those sleeping in the front bedroom might find it a little noisy if they are light sleepers. All in all, an exceptional property and the best holiday rental we have stayed in, anywhere! A real credit to the owners.
