When we arrived we were warmly greeted and were delighted with our accommodation, beautifully presented and spotlessly clean.We had full access to the garden which was delightful and so peaceful. Barry and Pauline did everything to make our stay comfortable. The breakfast was truly outstanding, the eggs fresh from their... More

Halse Water Cottage was the perfect place to stay whilst visiting friends who live within walking distance of this quaint little guest house. It was quiet and peaceful, just out of the village, down narrow country lanes. Barry and Pauline were very welcoming, the room was comfortable, the Wifi was excellent (a must for my work) and the breakfasts were... More

We had a fantastic stay at halse water. The house and grounds are absolutely stunning, a really idyllic setting with a stream, plenty of places to sit outside and gorgeous gardens. Barry keeps pigs and chickens and we loved being able to feed the pigs in the morning! But the best thing about the place was the hospitality. Barry is... More

We stopped for two nights at Halse Water Cottage when attending a wedding nearby. The cottage, and its situation, are simply idyllic. Tucked away down a winding country lane, with a little babbling stream and verdant fields on all sides, and yet only short drive from the centre of Taunton. From the cottage it is also just a 5-minute walk... More

We stayed here for 1 night on our way down to Cornwall from Derbyshire. Barry was very welcoming. The room was comfortable and breakfast was very nice. Within walking distance of the local pub, which serves food. We didn't eat there though as we had eaten earlier on our way down. Hens and pigs added to the rural treat! Happy... More

We had the pleasure of spending 2 nights at Halse Water Cottage travelling to and from Cornwall from Manchester. I chose the picturesque cottage due to the excellent Tripadvisor reviews and I have to say from the moment we arrived we were drawn into the peaceful world that Barry and Pauline have created. The cottage appears at the end of... More

We drove here from Scotland to go to a family wedding nearby and stayed at Halse Water Cottage for 2 nights...and what a find! The owners Barry and Pauline are most welcoming and charming. The house and the grounds are beautiful. Breakfast was first class; the first morning we had Barry's home-made pancakes with fresh fruit, along with home-made marmalade,... More

We stayed at Halse Water Cottage recently and enjoyed a really lovely stay. Barry and Pauline went out of their way to make us feel welcome, and looked after us brilliantly. Our room was spotless, very comfortable and Barry's breakfast was superb! The chickens and piglets were a great distraction for our little boy, and the tranquil setting on the... More
