  • "Yet another amazing month at the cottage."

    Comfortable, clean and very welcoming. The welcome basket is a perfect start to any break. The hosts Jane and David are excellent. They are on hand should there be a problem. The extra bonus of having the horses on site was perfect and the surrounding fields ext. were great for walking the dog. I would recommend visitors to stay there. A truly peaceful place to stay. Hopefully, we will do it all again next year.

  • "Had a lovely week at the cottage."

    Beautiful spot. We were a bit chilly at night as the cottages are being updated and ours had no heaters but we snuggled in front of the fire. Oreo the sheep dog was a welcome visitor. Such a friendly boy and the kittens were gorgeous. Took my mom and dad who stayed in Carthouse. Would definitely return.

    Hi. There is heating and Owls Retreat has the new heaters on the wall. The remote controls are on the wall next to each heater in every room. These are also air conditioning units. I’m so sorry you were cold and thought there was no heating. I wish you had asked me -nothing worse than being cold. The ironic thing is Owls Retreat has the most efficient heating system Property Owner

  • "Whilst the cottage was great for our needs and had everything we required and was comfortable I do feel that the kitchen area and the bathrooms could do with being updated as they looked and seemed very tired."

    The location was great and central to where we wanted to visit.

  • "Pleasantly surprised with the welcome hamper."

    Impressed by the quality of the carpets, bedding, furniture, etc. Wi-Fi, new tv, all sparkling clean. Loved the situation having horses almost looking into the windows and able to see the ménage too. Our little dog soon made friends with Oreo the farm collie who knew he could not come into the open door but sat outside. The air conditioning in all rooms was a joy because we had a the September heatwave. Close to dog friendly beaches with parking on the beach.

    The owners are very friendly and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. On arrival you receive a little welcome hamper this is a lovely touch. It’s great for the kids to run around and Jane their freedom with a games room and swings. We will see you next year.

    Perfectly situated between 2 tourist areas with lovely beaches and entertainment. The accommodation has everything you could need and is immaculately presented. Perfect for our children as the farm is so safe and has a great play area and games room. Also perfect for our dog who made friends with Oreo, the farm dog as did our 5 year old son! Lovely little touches such as a lovely hamper on arrival and miniature toiletries. We will definitely be back and had such a lovely week. Would definitely recommend. Thank you x

    There was a little mishap at the cottage prior to our arrival but we were informed in advance and the owners went above and beyond to sort it out before we got there and it didn't impact our stay at all. We don't always return somewhere but we will definitely stay here again. Can thoroughly recommend.

  • "Everything was great for our weekend away."

    The cottage had everything we needed. It was clean and tidy and well equipped and a lovely hamper of local food was provided. It was wonderful to know we could take our 2 dogs (not 1 like in the advert) and even a dog bowl, towel and blanket was provided. My only negative feedback would be the quilt was far to thick for this time of year and so was very hot at night but guess that’s my personal preference. Will definitely be a place we will return to!

    Perhaps the owners might have considered leaving a few cleaning materials in the property and extra binbag. However we enjoyed the week's stay and particularly visiting Brean beach and Brean point great for walking and views.

    It has been updated to a great standard, and very clean and tidy. We recieved a very warm welcome from the owners and their daughter on Arrival. On entering the cottage a lovely homemade hamper with Local produce welcomed us, which was a lovely surprise. The cottage was well equipped and very clean with lovely bedding and towels and little spa samples. There is a games room in the barn so great for the kids to go and use to give you a break..It's such a peaceful area and was lovely to come back to after a busy day to relax. Throughout the stay Jane was very lovely and even took our daughter to feed the horses which she loved. Would definitely go back and also recommend to others, very close to brean and weston super mare, and some lovely restaurants which are all mentioned in the welcome book. Thank you Jane, David and mia

  • "We had a lovely few days at Owls Retreat."

    We chose this accommodation as we took the mother in law who is a wheelchair user and the cottage is on one level. As soon as we arrived the owner saw the wheelchair and brought a ramp over to aid access, a nice touch. We also have a dog and the large secure paddock behind the cottage was very handy to let her have a sniff around and do her business. Don't forget to pick up the poo! The farm Collie dog Oreo is so friendly, when our dog decided to have a bark and a growl at her she just turned and walked away. Such a chilled dog. All in all we had a very relaxing stay and have recommended the accommodation to friends and family.

    We couldn’t have our dog in the open garden as it wasn’t secure at all and the owners dog clearly didn’t like mine.

  • "The phone number for the owner given on line is incorrect."

    The correct one is in the information folder in the cottage. The hot water heater was not turned on when I arrived. The hot water tap in the kitchen takes a very long time to run hot so water is wasted. Some egg cups would be useful! This is a pretty, well equipped cottage in attractive surroundings.

    Hi many thanks for your feedback. There are egg cups I ran over to check when I read this but they don’t look like traditional ones so not easy to spot! The water heaters are being replaced work starts tomorrow and we had to wait for a window when the cottages were free to replace. I agree they are a nightmare we inherited them from the previous owners and have been desperate to take out! Sorry for the inconvenience hopefully if you return you will see the improvement of hot water Property Owner
