  • "We had a lovely stay at Wavering."

    The location is very stunning and great for taking long walks. Great to return to the cosy cottage and light a log fire! We can definitely recommend a relaxing holiday at Wavering. Julie and Katy and the dogs Rosie and Oscar.

    The property was cosy and well equipped with lovely finishing touches. The walks directly from the property are fantastic. Even with some rain and chilly mornings, you cannot beat exploring and coming back to a cosy holiday home. If you do love walking, I highly recommend using a footpaths app as it clearly shows your options for routes when out and about. Cheddar and Axbridge are just a short trip away and both are beautiful and each have shops for essentials you need. Will definitely book again for our next UK break.

    Hi, it was lovely to meet you all and hear that you enjoyed your stay in Wavering. We look forward to welcoming you back again if you choose this area in the future. Property Owner

    Biscuits in jar out of date. Besides that lovely stay .

    Thank you for your valuable feedback. I am pleased to hear that you had a lovely stay when we spoke. I am however extremely disappointed that my temporary housekeeper did not pay enough attention to the cleanliness of the utensils nor check the expiry date of the biscuits and for this I do hope you will accept my apology. I hope that despite this you will choose to return to the area and Wavering in the future. Property Owner

    It is perfectly placed with walking routes on the doorstep and a wonderful location for other areas such as Well, Cheddar Gorge, and Glastonbury. We walked the nearby hills for a week and we could have stayed another week for sure. Our Host, Tracey, was wonderful and the cottage was beautifully appointed, very clean, and had everything we needed for a great stay. It is a wonderful property and we stayed next door in the adjoining property in 2018 and 2019 and which is very similar and just as nice. We hope to return to this property in 2023.

    Wow, thank you so much and you have booked again. We are thrilled thank you. Hoping you will find Wavering even more comfortable as it now boasts a grand Kingsize bed and luxury Emma mattress! Looking forward to seeing you next year guys. Property Owner

  • "We have just had a lovely week away in the Mendip Hills in Compton Bishop."

    The cottage is beautiful with everything that you need for your stay. It was clean on arrival. The view from the front garden over the hills is spectacular, we would sit outside every morning. The owners are lovely and met us on arrival. They told us some lovely local walks from the cottage which we did do. Wells, Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury, Western supermare, Axbridge, Wookey Hole are all great places visit to visit from the cottage too. The walk across from the cottage the Crook Peak was our favourite walk there. 2 lovely pubs within walking distance, both with lovely gardens to the rear and serve amazing food. If you get chance stop off at the farm shop on your way to Cheddar Gorge, the strawberries are amazing. Wells also is a beautiful place to visit with the Cathedral and the Bishops Palace. Also if you get chance there’s a book in the cottage all about Compton Bishop, if you get chance read it, it’s so interesting what the village was like back then with the history. We have left something at the cottage which is our sons, if the owners could get in touch with me that would be great - thank you. Thanks for a lovely stay in a beautiful part of the country x

    Thank you so much for your lovely detailed review. It was a pleasure meeting you all and your lovely dogs. Definitely the strawberries are to die for! Property Owner

  • "Just had a lovely weeks stay at Wavering cottage ."

    We thoroughly recommend this cottage as it's a very comfortable and conveniently situated cottage for visiting many of the pleasant walks or towns in the area .You do share the drive and the cottage is attached to another holiday home which belongs to the same hosts but you do get your own garden space .This may put some people off but it's not really a deal breaker .

    Thank you for your review. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay in Wavering. The large enclosed courtyard which lays beyond the individual enclosed cottage gardens is shared with the other guests but I am sure you will agree that there is so much space that it doesn’t cause any inconvenience to anyone when parking.

  • "We had a fabulous and relaxing stay in this lovely holiday cottage in Compton Bishop."

    The property is well situated for days out with minimum travelling for Cheddar Gorge, Wells, Weston Supermare... and fabulous walks along Sand point and beautiful Brean beach and Brean down to name just a few... Also Axbridge (about 2 miles away from the cottage) was definately worth a visit with access to Cheddar reservoir just down the road from there. I would definately go back to this part of the country and especially to Wavering Cottage. The owners were lovely and live on site... and they were very respectful of ensuring privacy for their guests in the 2 holiday cottages. A great holiday. Thank you.

    I am absolutely thrilled that you had such a positive experience and enjoyed your stay. Thank you for choosing Wavering. Property Owner

    The cottage was ready three hours ahead of schedule and there was a lovely welcome pack waiting for us on arrival. The place is very well equipped and we didn't want for anything. The log burner was a great asset on the cool evenings and once again everything was provided. If you do run out of logs there are plenty more on site for a small fee. The owner Tracey was lovely and made us feel very comfortable throughout our stay. We had a 5 month old Guide Dog puppy with us and we're very pleased to find the enclosed garden had the additional safeguard of a fully enclosed parking area beyond our garden so no worries if the dog got out. Tracey also offered us the use of an adjacent field to free run the pup. NT trail is just up the hill 100m from the property which is safe and free from livestock. We would happily recommend Wavering to all of our friends and family.

    Thank you for your review. It was a pleasure to meet you all and your little pup. Property Owner
