  • "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

  • "We stayed at Wavering for three nights to break up our journey to the South Coast."

    The cottage was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. Secure parking. There is access to the West Mendip way from the cottage- so some excellent walking. Also, easy access to the Somerset coast. The owner was very helpful giving directions and advice as to where to visit.

  • "This was a lovely, well equipped, very cozy cottage, despite banging my head on the beams by the bedrooms."

    The small garden was dog friendly and with the bench a nice place to read in the evening. As a minor criticism it would nice if the double bed was a king size for us larger folk. Anyone wanting to enjoy the beautiful City of Wells go on a Wednesday or Saturday for market day. A great buzz around the place.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are so pleased you found the barn conversion nice and cosy. Sorry to hear to banged your head on the exposed beam in the bedroom, but that this didn’t spoil your enjoyment of the cottage. Property Owner

  • "We (3 adults & 1 dog) arrived Friday 23rd April for a 7 night stay and we couldn't fault anything."

    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
