Sadly we only stayed at Halse Water Cottage for one night. We were made very welcome by Barry and Pauline and had a wonderful stay in this beautiful period Cottage. The cottage was warm and cosy with two log fires to enjoy. The breakfast was excellent and plentiful. We will definitely be coming back for a longer visit.

We have had a great 3 days at Halse Water Cottage this February. A really lovely cottage, very clean and quiet, and a fantastic breakfast every day cooked by Barry. Whilst the flooding is awful in the Somerset Levels, thankfully it has not been as bad in this part of Somerset, we have been out on our road bikes twice... More

We stayed at Halse Water Cottage for three nights over Xmas and were immediately struck by the warm and friendly welcome we received from Pauline and Barry on our arrival. The house is set in beautiful countryside with a babbling brook at the end of its drive. Our room was very cosy and warm and we really enjoyed the variety... More

This is our second stay at Halse Water Cottage over Christmas. Pauline and Barry make us so welcome, whatever the weather. They are terrific hosts and their breakfasts are legendary, wonderful and varied. The cottage is cosy and warm, which is essential given that we have only stayed in Halse in the middle of winter. We must return to experience... More

Stayed in August for a week. This was our third visit. Pauline and Barry are lovely hosts and made our stay so relaxing we didn't want to leave. Breakfasts are wonderful and packed lunches delicious. Staying all week we were fortunate to sample a different breakfast each morning.Great place to stay-highly recommend.

This was our third visit to Halse Water and what a great time we had. We like to stay in The Annex and kick off our shoes and relax. The weather was favourable the hosts most attentive and our " little home" was perfect. We took breakfast in the main house where the attention to detail and food was outstanding.... More

We stayed at Halsewater Cottage for two nights in August 2013 as part of an extended stay in England. It had always been a dream to stay in a thatched roof cottage and this more than met our expectations. We were greeted with afternoon tea at the water's edge amongst the ducks and duckling. The room was beautiful with high... More

We have stayed in Taunton before and wanted a more homely stay, with more than a motorway for a view! The drive through the countryside and round into the house was exactly what we wanted - idyllic countryside! The house and grounds are absolutely beautiful. The accommodation was homely and had everything you needed for a very comfortable stay. We... More
