  • "A beautiful cottage ideally situated for days out and local pubs and shops."

    We’re not walkers but sure that it is fabulous for those that are. Left to our own devices throughout but knew that the owner was on hand if needed. Only down point, which is no reflection on the cottage or the owner, is the very close proximity to a very active allotment complex. Could be quite noisy at times. Overall, excellent cottage.

  • "A lovely quiet cottage on the edge of Wedmore with views over the Mendip hills."

    Ideally situated for visiting Wells and Glastonbury plus amenities including four pubs within a ten minute walk, including decent restaurant at the George.

  • "The place was fabulous - just what we wanted."

    The area was lovely and quiet and the facilities provided were excellent apart from the Wi-Fi which was rather disappointing. But this did not spoil our time at the Coal House and made up by the cooking facilities along with the best range of utensils etc that we have experienced in all the places we have stayed at. All in all superb.

  • "We found the Coal House lovely, peaceful and well equipped."

    We had a nice arriving hamper of Coffees , tea's, biscuits, eggs and milk. Sharon and David were pleasant, but unintrusive. The views from the cottage were amazing, the night visits of the bats was great to see. The cottage is situated in the middle of so many place's to visit. We also found a lot of very good eating establishments. The only reason we didn't give top marks for comfort, was because of the heat, obviously not the owners fault, but a fan would have made the cottage prefect and sleeping would have been easier. Having said that the weather was great for the holiday. Thank Sharon and David for a really enjoyable holiday and we hope to visit again one day.

  • "A lovely, welcoming cottage thoughtfully presented throughout."

    The views are amazing and we enjoyed watching the martins, swallows and bats from the patio area. The view across the valley was stunning, especially with the early morning hot air balloons floating past. Having the E-charge facility was a big draw for us and made our stay so much more straight forward.

  • "The Coal House is a cosy little cottage in a perfect location for all the places we love to visit - Wells, Glastonbury, Cheddar & Weston."

    The village of Wedmore has everything you could possibly need to enhance your stay - wonderful village store & a number of places to eat. Unfortunately a couple of things that marred our week were the uncomfortable sofas & the persistent awful smell in the bathroom.

    The email that you sent regarding 'how to leave the cottage' was unable to be read until the day after we arrived home. The idea of a holiday is to leave stuff like having to deal with emails behind, so I suggest that you send this particular email before anybody leaves to go on holiday.
