Thank you for staying at The hide .Best wishes, Joe & Jane Property Owner Reviewed by KarenOct 2023 "This was a very clean and comfortable abode." Although we can understand the logic of a Friday change over, it is just about the worst day to travel with Friday traffic at its zenith. So, for purely personal reasons we would not go back there again. We will probably go on using Sykes Cottages, but not venture too far from home in the future. Many thanks for your review and we are sorry that your journey was so difficult. Try as we might, traffic (and weather) is beyond our control!

Best wishes, Joe & Jane Property Owner Reviewed by EricaAug 2023 "Fantastic property for a couple, very close to the A39 so easy to get anywhere quickly." The Hide was well equiped with a very comfortable super-king sized bed, and nice sofa's for relaxing at the end of the day. Wells, Glastonbury and Street are nearby, the Clarks outlet village in Street was a nice wander on Sunday with some bargains. Bristol is an hour up the M5. The Duck in Burtle was very good for Sunday lunch and an evening meal. The Spice Gallery in North Pemberton and the Thai Elephant in Street were both also excellent, so no shortage of good restaurants a short drive from the property. The owners were very friendly and helpful, definitely at the top end of holiday rental owners we have dealt with. Hoping to return at some point to continue exploring Somerset. What a fabulous review - thank you! We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back . Best wishes - Joe & Jane Property Owner Reviewed by PaulJul 2023 "Overall we were very happy with the property and thoroughly enjoyed our stay." We were made to feel very welcome by the owners, with a few nice personal touches on arrival, which helped. The property is in a quiet location adjacent to the main house with its own covered private parking and spacious garden. Inside it is finished to a high standard, so is a pleasant place to relax and unwind, with a very nice view to the front. Nevertheless, there is a well stocked small supermarket a short walk away and three nice pubs serving food about 15-20 walk away. In the listing, I would just like to have seen more details of what was provided in the property. Consequently we took a few items that were actually provided, such as a hairdryer. However, I'm sure the owners Joe & Jane would be happy to answer any questions about the Hide in advance of booking or arrival. We won't hesitate to book again if we want to spend more time in the area and would certainly recommend the Hide to friends and family. It was lovely to meet you both and thank you for staying at The Hide. We welcome all feedback and very much appreciate your comments. We aim to be as accurate as possible in our description and the listing does only provide a summary rather than a detailed inventory. As you know from your own experience, we also contact our guests well in advance of arrival by text and email inviting questions. As property owners and hosts, we would rather over deliver and It is most unusual to have guests expressing disappointment at being provided with more than they expected!

We are very grateful to Jane & Joe who stepped in at the last minute to accommodate us. The property was in a different area of Somerset to where we expected to be but was everything we could have asked for. It was detached, rural, very quiet and absolutely spotless. Jane & Joe were available, either in person or at the end of the telephone, if we needed anything and Jane even made us a lovely Victoria sandwich cake which was delicious. The property was very well equipped with everything we could possibly need for our stay and there was plenty of information available on places to visit in the area & places to eat locally. Jane & Joe were the perfect hosts & we would not hesitate to recommend The Hide to anybody wishing to get away for a relaxing break in the countryside. It was a terrible start to your holiday with your booking being cancelled at the last minute and we were very happy to accommodate you both and it was lovely to meet you. Thankfully you managed to make the best of your time and I hope you enjoyed seeing an unexpected part of Somerset!
