  • "Crooks is a very cosy cottage but not cramped because the space has been well designed."

    Although attached to Wavering (the cottage next door which is also a holiday rent) we heard nothing through the walls, even though the couple renting Wavering had a dog. The cottage was spotlessly clean and had all the facilities/equipment we needed. The key safe system worked well so we didn't actually meet our hosts. Crooks is set in a beautiful country area with an easily accessible end of the Mendips rising immediately behind the cottage. The road along the base of the hills runs immediately past the back of the cottage. There is very little traffic and you really don't hear it either inside the cottage or, indeed in the small garden seating area outside, so it is a very peaceful and quiet spot. Care is needed driving out of the property as the exit is onto a semi-blind bend in the road. We loved our stay and would recommend it for a quiet break in beautiful countryside. In colder months the woodburner would make the property even cosier (we didn't need it in late August/beginning September.

  • "It was a lovely little cottage and it had lots of little homely touches."

    The kitchen was well equipped, and the house was very practical, with tiled floors downstairs. The bedroom was lovely, with a comfy bed and a good shower. The only 2 things that I would have liked to be a little better were the quality of broadband as it was hard to watch streamed TV (I know this is hard when you live in the country) and the sofa was small which made it difficult to lounge around after a long walk with the dogs. But we enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others.
