  • "Lovely property adjacent to owner's house but fully independent."

    Had everything we could wish for ( although some soap would have been nice ). Comfortable beds and well equipped kitchen - would return . Had a lovely stay , thank you.

  • "Nice cottage in a very good location with plenty of outside and inside space, kitchen was well equipped and the wood burner was lovely."

    We really enjoyed our stay. The doors stuck a little bit (will have swelled during winter) so could do with a plane as some internal doors wouldn't shut and the back door was difficult to open. Additionally it would've been nice to have some more basic supplies provided like soap in the bathroom or more than 2 loo rolls for the week.

  • "A lovely, very well furnished and equipped cottage."

    Spacious, too, with a large outside lawn and BBQ area. Great for a dog. East Lambrook village is very quiet and attractive with lots of walks and a pub, but is only a short distance from pretty South Petherton which has excellent small shops, (though you need to go to the excellent baker in the morning). The whole area is full of interesting places, beautiful countryside and diverse things to do, and the Jurassic coast is about 40 minutes away. Great for dogs.

  • "This was a lovely spacious property, very well furnished."

    The owner Julian was very helpful and lent us tennis racquets to use on the new court. This was a most enjoyable holiday due to such a lovely experience staying in Ham cottage. Lots to do nearby.

  • "Ham Cottage is spacious and comfortable."

    It is in a beautiful setting within the grounds the owner’s home, and is quiet and peaceful. Garden furniture in a large area of grass is available for the use of Ham cottage residents at the back of the main house. It’s a great location for visiting several National Trust properties that are in the area.

  • "A lovely cottage in a pretty village next door to East Lambrook Manor Gardens and two minutes walk to the Rose and Crown."

    Nice walks from the cittage and two National Trust properties 10 minutes drive away. I was warmly welcomed by the owner Julian who lives next door. Ham Cottage is nicely decorated, spacious rooms, comfertable beds and got everything you need. Very dog friendly with a part of the large garden to use for the guests and dogs. I will recomend some dog friendly places near by to eat: The Devonshire Arms in Long Sutton, The Farm and Field Café outside South Petherton, The Barrington Boar in Barrington snd the café at East Lambrook Manor Gardens. Nice places to visit: Barrington Court, Ford Abbey, Montacute House and East Lambrook Manor Gardens.
