    The cottage is in a beautiful and peaceful setting and well placed to visit Cheddar Gorge, Wells, Bath and the North Somerset coast. The cottage is comfortable, a good size, well equipped and was perfect for our family of four (2 adults and 2 teenagers). The owner was friendly and had left us some scones and jam which were very welcome after our long journey! We would definitely recommend the cottage and the local area to others.

  • "We were greeted by the friendly owner Jane, who showed us around the property when we arrived."

    She lives on site as she runs the riding school on the grounds so she was on hand if we had any issues or needed any help. What a lovely cottage, adjacent to 3 other cottages situated on the same site. Its all very modern and tastefully decorated throughout. The kitchen/dining area had everything we needed, immaculately clean with comfortable furniture. TV has Netflix so that was a bonus for us. The bedroom had a comfortable bed with more than adequate storage with a shower room and toilet en suite which was amazing. There was a second twin bedded room with another separate shower and toilet which wasn't needed by us but was just as nice. An extra bonus for us was they had a separate fenced paddock for exercising our dog while we were there . A lovely quiet place to stay in Somerset, not too far from local shops and pubs. a great base for travelling out to the southern Cotswolds, the Quantocks, Glastonbury, Cheddar and Wells. Would highly recommend.

    It was lovely to meet you both and your dog. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your lovely comments. You would be welcome to return if you are in the area again. Property Owner

    When we arrived there was tea, coffee, sugar & milk supplied along with a lovely cake and fresh flowers, even our dog had a welcome pack. The whole cottage was immaculately clean and everything was finished to a high standard. The location was perfect, set along a quiet country lane so no traffic noise but close to all amenities.

  • "I have in recent years experienced two holiday cottages that failed to be described as advertised by Sykes."

    However this cottage exceeds all expectations. It was superb. It was brilliantly clean. (special thanks to the staff who clean the cottage!) The kitchen wanted for nothing, except perhaps a whisk! (But who uses a whisk when on holiday?) The furniture was comfortable to sit on and relax. Netflix was a welcome addition to the facilities. The beds were just right. We all slept well. The wet rooms were immaculate and very, very clean. There was sufficient cupboard space for clothes. Wooden hangers were in abundance. The scones and jam and cream were a lovely touch as were the treats for the dogs that accompanied our friends. The addition of a dog field was welcomed by our 4 legged fiends and they really enjoyed the freedom to run around. This house was located in an ideal position to access Cheddar,( although the Caves are at present closed the gorge is still worth a visit) Wookey Hole, Axbridge ( a little gem and worth and afternoon visit) Wells (the smallest city in England, but not small on attractions, lots more besides the Cathedral) Bristol, Bath, Street as well as the coastal towns of Weston- Super- Mare, Clevedon,( great Victorian Pier) and Burnham and all those in between. The owner was across the driveway and was accessible if required. This property has to be a jewel in the crown for Sykes. They should be rewarding this owner with as many bouquets as is possible. We will be returning when we revisit in the future. There are many places to visit.

    The lack of privacy did change how we felt about the day to day living arrangements as the owners House a few meters away overlooks the property and if you chose to sit outside in the lovely front patio there is no privacy as it is overlooked. The rear patio is small boxy and fenced in that we used, to feel not overlooked but not exactly a pleasant space to while away some outdoor relaxing time. It really depends on what is important to individuals and therefore an acceptable arrangement for others but if a private not overlooked space is on the list of must haves, then this may not work.
