  • "Amazing views, clean property with everything needed."

    Only (very small) complaint is that the pillows were hard and uncomfortable in the downstairs king bed. However as we were not using the bunk beds we took the pillows off them which were much better.

  • "The lodge itself is stunning, the views are incredible!"

    It is furnished perfectly leaning plenty of room but more than enough in terms of facilities. Some great local towns to visit and Bristol and Bath are both around a 1 hour drive. The hot tub is a perfect way to relax and soak up the views! We went in January and it provided a lovely cosy environment however it is perfectly set up for a summer break too with the patios and garden. The property is perfectly clean and welcoming with some nice touches provided by the owners! Can’t recommend this property high enough, for a romantic break, trip away with the kids anything! Book it quick you won’t be disappointed!

  • "This was a great place to stay."

    Firstly the views across the Somerset Levels where a great start to our holiday. The lodge was very well set out with all the furniture one would need for a comfortable stay. The Kitchen diner area was very spacious with a large telly. The lodge also came with WiFi which was very useful. There is also an outdoor Hot Tub to enjoy. Most locations where within 45 minutes (Longleat Safari Park, Cheddar Gorge, Clarks outlet village, Glastonbury and the Fleet Air Arm museum (though there is a Sea Harrier the owner bought in a mini museum on the lan). The owners Neil & Jo where very nice people, friendly and hospitable. Enjoyed meeting Tulip the lamb, the Shetland Ponies and not forgetting Billy the dog who greeted us most mornings.

  • "Heron Lodge and it's owners were fantastic, resulting in a wonderful break."

    We could not have asked for more! However, the constant very official e-mails and texts from Sykes Holiday Cottages were to say the least abrupt and in the main unnecessary. Yes, you were dealing with a situation caused by a pandemic but a more friendly approach would have made dealings with you more pleasurable.

  • "Marvellous place, photos don't do justice."

    You have totally uninterrupted views of the Somerset levels, Glastonbury, the Quantocks, and even part of Exmoor National Park. The owners bent over backwards to resolve issues (the hot tub didn't work day one and they resolved it really quickly) and were super friendly. They also have a farm dog, Billy, who loves you to play with him so if you like dogs there is a bonus. Everything you need for a relaxing break.

  • "This is probably the best place we have ever stayed in the UK out of the hundreds we have been to."

    The area is quiet. If you need to unwind in rural seclusion look no further ignore the price and just book you will not be disappointed. The location of this lodge and its facilities are amazing This lodge has a WOW factor as soon as you approach it. There are stunning views of Glastonbury Tor across the Somerset Levels . There is a breathtaking panoramic view from the spacious open plan living area. The hot tub also shares the great views and is secluded and sheltered. There are 2 bathrooms with great showers. There is a massive TV which we never turned on due to the amazing views. The lodge is very light inside due to the large floor to ceiling windows on 2 sides overlooking the Levels. The Lodge is not overlooked with nothing to spoil the views. There are lovely walks direct from your door across the Levels . There is much wildlife, swans, herons swallows and deer. 3 Alpacas, Billie the dog and a black cat visit the garden daily and are all friendly. There is a good WIFI signal but being rural the phone signal is present but a bit weak . There is ample parking. We only went out a couple of days as when you get here you will know why. There is very small campsite as you approach out of view of the Villa as you arrive. The hot tub was large and relaxing and needs to be off and reduced noise outside by 10 pm as not to disturb the one nearby lodge .The upstairs en-suite bedroom has a large bed with a comfortable mattress . The downstairs double bedroom is lovely but the soft mattress made the bed unsuitable for sleeping on so we used upstairs instead. I would suggest the same mattress as upstairs is purchased to rectify this as it would be cooler sleeping downstairs in summer. The sofas and art décor chair look great but are too soft and low for anyone with lower back problems. There is a hard tall chair suitable for reading and sitting though. The kitchen is very well equipped so we used it every day for evening meals. The main oven is slow so leave food in for longer. There are no tea cups or small mugs only numerous large ones. There were beach towels and bathroom towels provided which were on the small side . There is plenty soap washing liquid a dishwasher washing machine meaning you only need to bring your own shampoo and a large towel if you want one. We came as a couple and will definitely be returning in future. We cant wait to see on the nearby owners farm which has a harrier jumpjet which is wheeled out of its shed on a Sunday Overall we had an amazing stay and cant recommend the lodge highly enough. Don't forget a few more bottles of bubbly , just relax and take in the very special views

    The lodge was very welcoming and clean. Due to the high ceilings there were a couple of spiders webs. The kitchen was pretty well equipped. Bedrooms were clean and nicely decorated. It would have been good to have some little shampoos in the showers. A great weekend away.

  • "This lodge was absolutely stunning."

    Everything was perfect and the location was amazing. It completely exceeded expectations and we loved our time there. The alpacas, Billy the dog, the cat and chickens and cows were an added bonus. The views were just spectacular. The lodge was very modern with everything you need and the hot tub was sublime. Couldn’t recommend highly enough. A real gem. Will definitely be going back again.

  • "The Lodge was clean & tidy."

    It was situated in a lovely location overlooking fields with plenty of room for our grandchildren to play. From our Lodge you could see Glastonbury. The Hot Tub was great , my son spent the evenings in the Hot Tub just relaxing & Star gazing. Beds were comfy to some extent. My wife & i had the upstairs bedroom with en-suite, plenty of room but if you were thinking of taking long dresses it has only small wardrobe hanging space for skirts or shirts, it has no tall wardrobe. En-suite was well fitted, great shower. No bath in the property it has 2 showers. Kitchen was ok equipped but could do with more Utensils. Sofa was very uncomfortable so don't expect to sit in the evenings & be relaxed. My son & his wife took the children to see the Harrier in the shed it was amazing. Wi-fi went down for around 24hrs but was sorted. All in all it was a lovely stay & would go back without hesitation, just could do with some new sofas. Billy. the farm dog. comes to meet you when you arrive & the children loved him. He brings his toys & ball for you to throw.

    6 adult females stayed in this lodge for a rare get together, and we all were happy and comfortable ( even in the bunk beds). The animals are a nice treat to visit, and Billy the dog is such a lovely boy, who just wants to play. The TV is a smart TV so for winter days like ours Netflix is available, as is free WiFi. Plentiful cooking facilities and cutlery including pots, pans and trays, we managed to easily cook a roast dinner for us all. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Heron Lodge. The best thing about this lodge was the views and Billy. Thank you!

    Key storage worked well and the views from the doorstep were simply awesome. The whole accommodation was spotlessly clean - a real credit to the owners. All of the facilities worked as intended, Netflix being a real bonus as the weather was terrible. Underfloor heating provided cosy comfort. The hot tub was a perfect end to any day, being slightly covered by the roof - exactly right. Would we come back - yes yes yes. Finally, regular visits from Archie the dog provided exercise in the way of throw and catch.
