  • "Immaculately clean, comfortable bed (which in my opinion is MUCH rarer in holiday lets than you would think) beautiful finishes."

    Absolutely stunning garden in an idyllic part of Somerset. Very friendly hosts. Exceptional. Loved my stay at the potting shed and I hope to return and I would recommend this let its rural and peaceful but so close to so many must see places in Somerset. Perfect balance of rest and play.

    Thank you for the lovely review Deborah! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. It was a pleasure to meet you and I look forward to welcoming you back soon! Property Owner

  • "Lovely location, immaculate presentation."

    The fact that there is no kitchen should be emphasised more on the website. It is rather hidden away as an afterthought at the end of the description. Anyway two people reading it did not notice this until after booking and paying.

    Thank you for your review, and I am really glad you enjoyed the location and presentation of The Potting Shed. I'm sorry that you were disappointed with the lack of a kitchen; this was mentioned in the bullet pointed list of facilities. We have taken your comments into consideration and moved it up the list. Thank you again for your input, and I do hope that, despite the lack of a kitchen, you will be inclined to book with us again. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful property!"

    Extremely clean, comfortable, warm cosy and welcoming. Like having your own secluded cottage in beautiful surroundings. Very quiet. Seat in patio area which was lovely in the sun. Large bathroom and shower. Large comfortable bed. Although bed and sitting area in same room, there is plenty of space and the lounge area feels separate with it’s sofa and table and 2 chairs. Alex, Neal and Mollie were very warm friendly helpful and lovely. As for the millionaire shortbread: what can I say!!! Absolutely delicious!!! Thanks for letting me stay in your lovely property. Hope to see you again

    Thank you Christine, it was so lovely to meet you and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us. There'll always be millionaire's shortbread waiting for you on your return! Property Owner

  • "Friendly owners and the Potting shed is fantastic."

    It is small but very comfortable and very clean. It has TV with Netflix etc and is an ideal base for those wishing to explore the surrounding area. No kitchen but a tea/coffee making area and a microwave. If you are after a cost effective time away, this is it!

    Than k you so much for your feedbackThomas. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and found it to be great value - always a plus! Property Owner

  • "Just got back from a wonderful break at The Potting Shed."

    It is immaculately clean, bright and warm. I was there during some horrendous wet and windy weather and I was happy to be in my cosy little hideaway. The bed is so comfy and the bedding crisp. The owners seem to have thought of everything you might need. The grounds are gorgeous and the surrounding area very pretty. Communication was excellent and not only would I recommend anybody to go visit, I'd love to return myself. Many thanks for a lovely time.

    Thank you so much for your feedback Jenny. It was such a pleasure to meet you and host your stay with us. We really look forward to welcoming you again, hopefully in better weather next time! Alex Property Owner

  • "Very pleasant and helpful owners."

    Welcome pack on arrival. Large wardrobe with a good number of hangers. Ample parking. Pleasant location. Comfortable bed. Sufficient furniture for two. (Small table two dining chairs/settee) Microwave and kettle. A rather large coffee maker. No crockery or cutlery (2 mugs/2 glasses 2 spoons supplied) Description does say. NO KITCHEN. All electric with limited heating. More heaters can be requested. Overall a quirky stay with some novel methods for cooking/eating.

    Thank you so much for your feedback Ralph. We've tried to make it as clear as possible that The Potting Shed does not have a kitchen in order to manage expectations. We are very lucky in Langport as we have a wide selection of pubs, cafes and takeaways. If you take advantage of the local eateries, crockery and cutlery are always available on request, as mentioned. I always do my utmost to ensure all our guests' needs are catered for and any concerns raised with me are addressed as swiftly as possible. It was an absolute pleasure meeting you and your wife Sue and I hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip. Alex Property Owner
