“Quiet countryside location with beautiful cottage.”
Wood burning stove made great atmosphere
“Awesome weekend with family.”
Really lovely place.
“Fantastic house for our family of 10.”
Good location, beautiful house that has everything you could need.
“Great location, the property had everything we needed and more!”
“We enjoyed our stay in Henton, Double House Farm.”
The kitchen is well equiped, the log burner is great, the bedrooms are spacious and the bathrooms look fairly new. We had ample space for the 5 of us. 10 might feel a bit tight, especially in the lounge or the sun room. But it suited us just right. We would come back. This house is very handy for visiting Wells, Cheddar and the Clark Village shopping outlet. *** Owner Response *** Thank you for your comments. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. The property offers 3 living rooms throughout the property, a dining room, a kitchen eating area and a large patio area which we feel would be suitable for a larger group of guests. We hope to welcome you back soon!
“Providing some basic kitchen equipment such as a milk jug, salad spinner, salt and pepper mill would have been helpful.”
Over all it was very comfortable.
“Two families week long break”
We stayed here as we need large accomadation for all the family. It was excellent for the five adults and four children. Having all the bathrooms meant now queuing! The kitchen was large enough to easily prepare meals for all of us and there was enough room to all get together as a family as well as having enough space to spread out into rooms for a quiet read or game. The location was good fro visits out to Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole, Fleet Air Arm Yeovil, Bristol, Bath and Wells.
“Would love to stay again”
Lovely large house,there was 10 of us and a baby and their was plenty of room,the weather was quite cold but the underfloor heating made it really warm,5 minute drive into wells for all the amenities.The lounge could easily be an extra bedroom as their is another at the back of the house with the lovely views.very large kitchen with table that seats 12, and also a dining room,lots of utensils,pots pans etc.very well equipped.Maybe some of the bedroom furniture could be updated BUT I would definitely recommend this property and I would love to go back.
