"Absolutely beautiful place to stay."
Everything you need is there. Stunning views . We loved our stay and were made to feel really welcome.

"We had an absolutely lovely cosy week away."
The treats on arrival were absolutely lovely. The studio is well equipped, very cosy and welcoming. The owners were very friendly and helpful. They met us on arrival with some information about the studio (despite our horrific journey and being so much later then we originally advised we would be). Lovely little village and close to a few different national trust sites.
Thank you for your feedback. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back any time in the future. Property Owner
"The studio is a lovely accomodation for two, set in very rural Somerset."
Comfortable, clean and well equipped, it's the ideal bolt hole to chill and relax after a day touring this beautiful area. Many attractions within 20 milesany direction of the studio. We had a lovely stay.
Thank you for your feedback. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back any time in the future. Property Owner
"Enjoyable stay at Trister studio, although must say we had a few bruises getting used to the apex beams."
Views were stunning but would benefit from a glass balcony to appreciate these when sat down. Studio is well equipped with everything you would need despite being compact. Not sure about the abundance of fluffy cushions for hygiene reasons, and recycling bins meant a trek down every day to fill 5 different ones as no space upstairs. However the place & surrounding areas were delightful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay
Thank you for taking the time to leave a feedback, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the views. We do mention the low beams in the description and in the booking confirmation box. We'll make sure to forward your recommendations to the owner and looking forward to welcoming you again soon. Property Owner
"The studio gave us exactly what we needed, a week away from everything to relax and recover from a hectic few weeks."
perfectly situated away from the world, it was amazing to just relax. the weather stopped us from going outside too much but still a nice relaxing time was had.
Thank you so much for your feedback. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and we would love to welcome you back anytime in the future. Property Owner
"We came to Somerset for a chill out week with our dog and by staying here we certainly managed that."
Jane, out host, was welcoming and went beyond what she needed to do to make sure our stay was one we would remember. The apartment was exactly what we needed and once we had got used to the perils of living in a loft conversion, we had everything w needed but it was the people of Somerset that made our stay and Jane epitomised that’ in every way
Thank you so much for such wonderful feedback. It's lovely to hear that you enjoyed your stay and the people of Somerset (Jane included!) made your time there so memorable. You're always welcome to return to Trister Studio in the future. Property Owner
"Very nice location, lovely view and lovely garden"
"The Host was such a lovely person nothing to much trouble will be going back again and again"
We look forward to welcoming back! Property Owner
"Trister Studio, is a little gem, nestled in a quiet valley, with beautiful vistas from the balcony during the day and an ocean of stars at night."
You will find everything you require for your stay, with a huge cushion laden sofa to chill out on after a day of adventures. Your welcome will be warm and helpful, I enjoyed the wonderful welcome basket of goodies. It is a beautiful place, so if you can trot up the stairs to the loft & remember the eaves above the comfy bed, you will have a delightful stay in an area that offers plenty of walking and historic areas to visit. I had a wonderful, peaceful stay, so enjoy !
Thank you for your feedback with regards to your stay at Trister Studio. Its wonderful to hear how much you enjoyed staying at the Studio. We will pass on your comments to the owner and we hope to welcome you back again in the future. Property Owner
"Jane was a wonderful host and the property and grounds were lovely."
Beautiful views, quiet and full use of the gardens. Easy to do a Covid secure handover too.
"Location and accommodation are great and as we needed a pleasant break we were very impressed ."
Close to 303 for day trips and the accommodation veranda was good for peaceful evenings in. Wanted for nothing at the studio and Jane was attentive to check we had everything we needed. Will definitely book again.
Thank you for taking the time to leave your lovely comments on Trister Studio. We look forward to you returning to the studio in the near future. Property Owner
"The cottage was lovely and as described."
The owner gave a covid friendly welcome and was reassuring when I rang her prior to the visit to check what covid cleaning regime she followed. Fantastic views and walks from the cottage. Wincanton was close by and had everything we required. The settee looked comfortable but was actually really uncomfortable. Anyone taller than 5”10 will need to mind their heads as the beams are low at the sides. All in all a lovely break in a high standard cottage.
Thank you for your lovely feedback on Trister Studio. We are glad you enjoyed the views and walks from the property. Of all the reviews on the Hideaways website the issues you have raised have never been flagged up as a problem. However, we will pass your comments on to the owner. There is also a section of the sofa that backs on to the kitchen area, as shown in the pictures. This is well away from the beams and there is more than enough room for two people to sit in comfort.

"A very warm welcome from the owner."
Lovely studio apartment. Very well thought out with everything you could need for a short break. Beautiful views and gardens. Lies within easy reach of Glastonbury, Salisbury, Wells etc Not within walking distance of local amenities but they are only a short drive away.
Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay at Trister Studio. It's always lovely to hear how much our guests enjoyed staying and we hope to welcome you back again in the future. Property Owner
"One of the most comprehensively stocked holiday lets it's possible to find."
The lovely owner, Jane, has thought of absolutely everything possible to make guests happy and comfortable. Stunning views from the balcony and plenty to do and see in the area. Don't miss Stourhead with all the beautiful autumn colours.
The owner will be delighted to read your comments and we hope you visit again soon. Property Owner
"We had a lovely stay at this property despite the weather being pretty awful."
It has all you need for a comfortable stay. It is compact but definitely cosy. The view over the surrounding countryside is fabulous. The owner is very friendly and made us feel welcome on our arrival and supplied us with some milk, tea and coffee but also biscuits and some flowers - all very much appreciated.
We are glad the weather did not spoil your stay at the cosy Trister Studio. Property Owner
"Lovely owners with unique holiday home."
On the downside had to take our car everywhere as the lanes around Trister are very narrow with no footpaths so not suitable for walking with dogs. Owner does let you use their extensive lawned garden for dogs to play in which ours loved.
Thank you for your feedback we are happy to hear you had a lovely stay at Trister Studio. We are so sorry you weren't able to discover the many lovely walks available right on the doorstep of the cottage that are accessible without the need to go onto the lanes. Property Owner
"It’s a lovely location and a short drive to local pubs and walks."
The accommodation is clean and cosy with beautiful views of the valley. We made use of the balcony for breakfast and lunch. It’s a great for quiet romantic getaway.
It sounds as though you had a wonderful stay at Trister Studio, thank you for you lovely comments. Property Owner
"Trister Studio was an amazing place to stay!"
All the amenities you could need for the most comfortable stay. It was an absolute dream to stay here. The cottage is well equipped so we really enjoyed a few lazy days in. The hosts were fantastic! So hospitable and welcoming, it was a true pleasure to have met them. Thank you so much for making this a memorable staycation!
Thank you for your amazing feedback on Trister Studio. Property Owner

I cannot praise it or the owner’s highly enough
Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay at Trister Studio. It's always lovely to hear how much guests have enjoyed staying and we hope to welcome you back in the future. Property Owner
"A perfect little hide away!"
The hosts were fantastic, thinking of literally everything from the milk in the fridge to the welcome hamper! Amazing little annex, didn't want to leave.
"It was a really enjoyable stay!"
They’ve made use of the space. So comfortable and cosy! And the extra add ons were a lovely touch. Would love to stay again and highly recommend to others.
Thank you for your lovely comments on Trister Studio. We hope to welcome you back soon. Hideaways. Property Owner
"We had a great stay, a really cosy, romantic, picturesque, studio."
Great area and plenty of things to do.
"We really enjoyed, our stay at Stoke Trister, the views are just absolutely beautiful."
It is perfect to chill, walk the dog and there are lots of nearby places to visit. My mobility is poor so we never go to far, but as the flat was comfortable and warm it was a pleasure to come back after a short trip out. The owner Jane was, so welcoming and kind, the whole week was perfect. Our dog Luther adored it with lots of walks my husband could enjoy with him. Although the kitchen area is small it is very well equipped. The surprise treats were a real delight! Thank you for a most enjoyable stay.
Its wonderful to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and that you where able to make the most of the lovely areas you can visit locally. We hope to welcome you back in the future and have a wonderful Christmas. Property Owner
"This is a great little studio apartment in the owners private grounds."
The view from the studio balcony is fantastic.
"We had one of the best holidays ever the studio was beautiful set in a stunning location."
The hosts were lovely and everything we needed was there we would definitely go back and would highly recommend sykes cottages.
"Excellent accommodation,well equipped,lovely location"
"Trister Studio was a perfect retreat for two, lovely place with superb view."
There are plenty of places to visit all within about an hour or so drive-time, whether travelling North, South, East or West. Alternatively you can sit and soak up the sun and relax the time away at the Trister Studio. Had great weather while we were there and enjoyed the holiday and look forward to returning there in the near future.
"This is absolutely the most peaceful place, the silence is deafening."
Match that with the view, and you have a perfect place for a relaxing break. Very comfortable and clean and everything you need for some R&R. Definitely recommended
"Very relaxing holiday , the studio provides a place where time slows down , friendly welcome from owner but not once intrusive throughout our stay , hope to return ."
"The studio, was very comfortable, a haven away from a very busy life, waking up to the beautiful scenery every morning was a joy, and all the little extras the owner provided was very much appreciated."
"This was truly an amazing studio everything you could possibly want and more, Jane our host made us so welcome she had supplied everything you could want it was like home from home."
So many lovely place to visit and the view from the studio was breathtaking. We will be booking again for next year and years to come.
"Awesome place lovely views Jane was very welcoming Good place for us to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary"
"This was a fantastic property; peaceful, pretty and close to many local places to visit; the garden was beautiful with outstanding views from the little balcony."
We were able to sit out and read in the sun and listen to the birds and sheep. The lodge was lovely and cosy with freebies of cider and other goodies. It is positioned up a narrow lane - but close enough to get to the A303 for travel. Jane is a lovely host and we felt comfortable being in their grounds.
"The studio was lovely."
Very clean, cosy, with a well stocked kitchen. It is easy to find, and looks over stunning grounds and fields. My only two negative points, the first is that the listing indicated free wi-fi, which was one of my search filters and important, and when I arrived it was noted that whilst there was wifi, we were polityly being asked not to stream anything, or download large files. I went there to do some writing and research, which required listening to podcasts, YouTube. I also stream music, and my preference is to watch netflix rather than terrestrial tv. The weather was pretty grotty, fortunately, I had the work I wanted to do, but other wise, I could have been stuck with things to do. So I think free wifi on the listing was misleading, and maybe limited wi-fi should be noted. Jane the owner was very nice about it. She did increase the quota of data on her contact (because I'd used so much with pod casts & youtube) and I then upgraded by phone contract to include more data. Neither was really ideal, when the listing could have included these details from the get go. This is more of an issue with the listing on the website, rather than anything negative about the property or the landlady Jane who was lovely. The only element to do with the property which I didn't get on with very well was the shower, which had a very poor power/flow; so not enough water came out it to properly cover you, or to wash your hair easily, so I was cold in the shower. It could do with a more modern version of the Mira units maybe, my parents have one and it is just like a power shower.
Many thanks for your feedback. Trister Studio is very popular and has a lovely owner, Jane who always goes out of her way to ensure her guests are happy and enjoying their stay, thus resulting in continuous positive feedback. As it states on the website, there is “TV with freeview, DVD, WIFI”. Although WiFi is available it is not unlimited and there is a polite notice which refers to this in the Studio. However, with an average use of the internet this limit should not be an issue. If a guest wishes to stream large files, download podcasts, YouTube, stream music, Netflix etc. then it is advisable to check with the owner first as this would be considered more than recreational use. Despite using up almost over half of the monthly allowance in 2 days, the owner straight away upgraded her allowance to accommodate despite never having had any issues in the past. Had the WiFi been unlimited, a realistic usage is to be expected unless otherwise requested by the guest. Due to the unusual high usage in a very short period of time which resulted in urgent alerts from the provider to the owner, it was only really queried with the guest as the network is unsecured and as this had never happened before, the owner just wanted to ensure that the system wasn’t being used unauthorised by an outside user. Regarding the shower, this will of course be looked into, however, as this is a Studio which is situated away from the main house where the water is supplied from, the pressure will always be less. However, this issue has never once been raised by any of the many previous guests. This owner always does a meet and greet and always encourages all of her guest to let her know of any issues and requests to ensure the best possible experience. Property Owner

Peaceful and gorgeous view.
"Cosy, warm and very clean."
Large bowl of fruit...also a bottle of cider...what a delicious greeting!. Felt immediately at home. Wish we'd booked for two weeks.
"Beautiful place to relax."
Fantastic views and provides everything we could want. Couldn't have asked for better weather or a better stay!
"Having travelled though this part of the country on many occasions it was a revelation, the epitome of England's green and pleasant land."
The views from the balcony are exceptional, the owners are very pleasant and The Studio is very comfortable. Above all, the welcome that Somerset provides is something that I will treasure!
"We have had 7 amazing nights at The Studio."
Beautiful location, cosy and comfortable. Accommodation was everything we needed and we would recommend to family and friends as a perfect relaxing retreat. Beautiful views, welcoming host and thank you for our lovely tray of goodies. The only downside was that it wasn't long enough! We cannot wait to come back.
"The most beautiful place with the best views!"
We had the most relaxing few days. Lovely place to stay and was very peaceful. Thank you.
"Very comfortable and peaceful."
"We have just got back from 4 days at The Studio."
It is truly spectacular with absolutely incredible views. We took our 2 whippet dogs with us and did lots of long walks, right from door of The Studio - there are so many footpaths to explore within 5 minutes walking distance of the property. It was wonderful to come back to after a day out in the fresh air in the surrounding landscape, sit down on the sofa with a cup of tea and look out across the beautiful scenery. It is a magical place to stay. The owners are lovely and more than happy to do anything for you. Everything you'll need is provided in The Studio. If you have the opportunity to stay here, please do, you won't regret it. We're certainly going to be returning!
"Beautiful views, fabulous beaches within 1 hour."
Perfect compact holiday home and well kitted out! Thank you very much
"A beautiful retreat."
Cosy and restful... The view of Blackmore Vale is breathtaking. The Studio is such a sensitive and graceful place. So much care and thought has been taken with every little detail and so much genuine generosity offered by the owner.... Thank you.
"Accommodation set in beautiful rural location - The Studio has everything you need, and the balcony on a sunny day is lovely."
Views out over the landscape are amazing. The host was lovely and very welcoming. The location is great for exploring Stourhead, Glastonbury and the pretty villages around.
"PEACE AND QUIET IN A BEAUTIFUL PART OF SOMERSET."
BLISS! LOVED THE STUDIO, SO WARM AND COSY
"We liked actually everything in and around this lovely barn."
We felt immediately at home. The view from the terrace is beautiful. Dorset and Somerset are very nice. We consider certainly to return.
"I had a wonderful time here and the weather was very good to me."
If you're a cider drinker, walk down to the Unicorn pub; he has won adwards. Jane is a very special lady and my dogs enjoyed the company of some visiting doggies. Thank you. Will return.
"Booking the accommodation was very easy and the directions clear and precise."
Our welcome gifts were very much appreciated and the view is awesome. Property owner was very lovely and we will most certainly be returning for another quick break. Property was spotless and cosy. We had a really nice time.
"A relaxing mini break which was much needed."
Thank you for the thoughtful welcome tray which we both enjoyed!
"We had a wonderful, relaxing week."
We will miss that view! Thank you.
"Me and my partner stayed here in June last year."
The views were beautiful, and it is very close to some amazing restaurants and shops. Plus only an hour away from amazing places to visit. The apartment was very clean, and we both loved the way they left some goodies for us for when we arrive. Was very thoughtful. We both will definitely be back. Thank you.
"Owners very helpful and we were able to use their garden much appreciated by our dog Daisy."
Wonderful views, in excellent position for visiting Dorset.
"Just to say thank you for a wonderful stay this weekend."
We've fallen in love with The Studio and that view! Really impressed with The Studio and what you have done with the space. Thanks for all the little touches too! We can't believe how lucky we were with the weather and are heading back to London thoroughly refreshed. We''ll be highly recommending you to family and friends and will be sure to leave a glowing review on the Hideaways site.
"Wow, what a lovely place, we wore ourselves out."
The kind owners said we could use their garden to play ball and run around. They also kindly left us some doggie chews and our owners some cider and biscuits. We visited lots of lovely places and did lots of walking and playing. Our dad owner was on the verandah nearly all the time. All in all a lovely place to stay with views to die for. Wonderful places to visit and lovely welcoming people. Thank you so much.
"What a perfect retreat - that priceless view - better than the photo suggested and such lovely hosts."
"Had a wonderful, relaxing week, breakfast every morning admiring the wonderful view of the vale."
Lovely cottage with all mod cons! The weather was also kind - better than abroad!
