  • "What a wonderful cottage in a lovely village."

    Perfect for our visit. The accommodation was spacious, well equipped and comfortable. Access to a grocery, tea shop and pub/restaurant all were within 3 minute walk. Recommend for either families or couples as there is plenty of room for 6 in the two triple rooms. Look forward to a return visit. Couldn’t be more pleased. Top marks!

  • "Great village location with tea room, village shop and decent pub very close by."

    Cottage was well supplied to ensure we could please ourselves about staying put, venturing out, eating in, eating out. Easy access to several areas of interest including Lytes Cary Manor, Montacute House, Lyme Regis, Glastonbury, Wells and several lovely villages. Would recommend the Lord Nelson in the village and The Prince of Wales in Ham Hill Country Park for eating out.

  • "Lovely, spacious, spotlessly clean cottage with everything we needed."

    Very quiet, nice secluded rear patio which will be great in warmer weather.

  • "It is cottage that lived up to expectation from the listing and our previous stay."

    It is comfortable and well appointed and wonderfully located close to the village shop, church and pub. Lovely walks from the village are accessible for all levels of fitness. A great place for a base to explore from or just to rest and recuperate.

    We've just stayed there ourselves for a second time. The cottage is nicely presented, very comfortable and well equipped. Everything was perfect.

  • "Plenty of room for 4 people, large lounge with 2 sofas."

    Patio space to eat outside but would benefit from some outside lighting as we had to come inside as soon as it was dark. Lovely village shop, but for Sunday arrivals ensure you have provisions, although there was a pint of milk in the fridge and some biscuits provided.

    Very comfortable, with everything you'd need, easy walk to the pub and shop/post office opposite.

    We had a lovely time, the cottage is really comfy and the location brillant. I hope we can stay again next year.

  • "A beautiful terraced cottage in the heart of the village with off-road parking."

    It has been tastefully fitted and furnished to a comfortable, modern standard, yet keeping the feel of a traditional country cottage. Would love the opportunity to stay there again. Really recommend it.

  • "I would disagree with the last review completely."

    The cottage is lovely and welcoming, spotlessly clean and the outside space is just beautiful! Lovely garden flowers, numerous sitting options depending on sun or shade preference, and absolutely no problem with spider webs or bugs! It's a very comfortable large cottage in an amazing village location and we wouldn't hesitate to stay again or recommend it to anyone.

    Reviewed by Karen5.0Jul 2022

  • "Outside space very disappointing, the table and chairs were full of spiders and the wood was peeling off."

    The plants were mostly dead, not sure why they were there. The welcome sign in the kitchen might be a nice idea but not sure if it was welcoming us or the insects that lived in it. The cottage felt like a business that no one was checking. Things felt tired inside and needed some updating. It didn’t feel 5 star and wasn’t to the same standard we have experienced before with Sykes Cottages.

  • "Our second visit to this lovely cottage."

    It’s such a beautiful village with a well-stocked village post office and shop, teashop and pub, and very picturesque too with lovely walks from your doorstep. The cottage is really comfortable. Would thoroughly recommend it!

  • "In a word, brilliant."

    Exactly what we were looking for, a bit of peace and quiet in a comfy cottage in a glorious part of the UK. The description of the cottage was very accurate, easy to find. The owner had left milk and pastries, very thoughtful. She was also very kind and helped me with waste recycling, living outside the UK I am not used to the various requirements. Powerful shower, and plenty of hot water. If I have one small criticism, it appeared that the cooker was unable to cope with more than one hob working at any one time. Otherwise, everything we asked for and great walks to boot. Very friendly village.

  • "A great cottage located in a marvellous village and very tastefully presented with no sign of tack renovation."

    Plenty of space and great facilities. Village located such that some lovely walks can be made in and around Ham Hill and across to Montacute. We were all very comfortable at Greenham Cottage. Highly recommended.

  • "What a great find!"

    Greenham Cottage lacks for nothing and our host Marcia was most attentive to any requests that we had. The kitchen is well appointed, the lounge spacious and the beds are very comfortable. Although the cottage is on the through road of the town, we were never disturbed by traffic. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be returning.

    We were visiting family (Covid restrictions prevented us staying with them) so very familiar with the area. Staying at Greenham cottage made us appreciate more what a perfect location this is with shop, cafe and pub all within 2 min walk. Would recommend to anyone looking for an idyllic break in the English countryside.

  • "The cottage has been wonderfully restored and is fantastically maintained."

    Marcia happened to be there when we arrived and was very welcoming. The only downside is that Sykes' emails (arrival instructions, check in/out deadlines, etc) are written in such a way that you are left feeling like a naughty schoolboy rather than a grown adult!

    The beautiful Jurassic Coast and historic market towns like Dorchester and Glastonbury are a short drive away. We found the cottage very clean and cosy, the beds extremely comfortable and the kitchen very well-equipped. The cottage is in the centre of the village of Norton-sub-Hamdon that has a community shop and a popular village pub.

  • "Beautiful cottage and just what needed."

    Very comfortable clean beds If you wish detail as to where small improvements could be made then Catches on windows were very hard to open and when opened could be cleaned, No washing up liquid (we left you a bottle) purchased from the well stocked village shop. Instruction card for upstairs shower thermostat control would have been most beneficial (quarter turn anti-clockwise only) Sharp scissors would be good also sharp kitchen knives. Would I return to Greenham Cottage again, DEFINITELY as these are only minor issues.

  • "This holiday cottage is exactly what we had hoped for."

    Very modern facilities but keeping that wonderful 'cottage' feel. Bedrooms, bathrooms, and living areas all very comfortable with plenty of room for 5 adults. The kitchen offers everything you could possibly need if you want to cook at home, although eating at all the local village pubs is a real pleasure with friendly staff and good food. This cottage is in a super village location but with very easy access to a main road making days out that much easier. We would happily stay there again!

  • "We had a lovely stay in Greenham Cottage and would love to come back again."

    The cottage is well appointed with everything you could need for a relaxing holiday. The local pub serves a fabulous roast dinner and everyone we met was so friendly. We had beautiful weather, which was perfect for local country walks and visits to the seaside. The cottage is spacious and easily accommodated the 5 of us. It’s important to note that the beds are very high (except for the extra optional bed) and bed guards are no use with them, as the mattresses are so deep. This is just for young family information. We would definitely come back again and we were very sad to leave. The owners were easily contactable and very friendly too. Scones, clotted cream and jam on arrival was a wonderful touch. Thank you so much! The Oathams x
