a challenge to find and a good stay for walkers. Watch out for the chicken poo. Very much in the country so you can't just walk to anywhere. Would I recommend to a friend only if they wanted to getaway from everything and walk paddocks or pony ride. Black mark was being told we had to clean the property or... more

Management response:

Thanks for your feedback, we do pride ourselves on being very much a country holiday location where you can get away from it all. Despite that, we are only 10 mins from the M5 and A303, so a very good base for people wanting good access to other areas. Taunton (the county town of Somerset) and Wellington (a lovely market... more

Had a great stay here for a few weeks whilst working in Taunton. The accommodation is lovely and quaint and the owners couldn't be more helpful. We would recommend this rental to anyone and would love to return if working in the area again. Chickens made us laugh every morning - priceless. more

Management response:

Thanks for your review. Very pleased to hear the chickens entertained you, they are good fun aren't they! more

This has been one of the best stays we have had! WELL worth the money. The pigsty is lovely and cosy, with everything you need and very central, allowing you to explore all of Somerset. And the hamper of local produce at a small extra cost made it an extra special week. Fantastic! more

Management response:

Thanks very much for your kind comments. We do try to provide a super getaway location, at an affordable cost. Very pleased to hear that you liked the breakfast hamper as well. more
