“Just perfect at any time of year!”
Reviewed November 6, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The cottage was perfect for our escape to the peaceful countryside.! We loved the open plan room upstairs, which meant that we and our teenagers could relax and spend quality time together in the same room....we actually sat and watched DVDs together which we never manage to do at home.
The kitchen was well stocked....the homemade marmalade was wonderful thank you....and soon all gone!
The bedrooms and shower room were beautifully finished with quality bedding, electric blankets, magazines on the bedside tables and fluffy towels. Will and Lettie really have thought of everything!
Bath and Bristol were close enough to do the usual touristy bits.
A very relaxing break and we will definitely return, thank you.

“Super, peaceful cottage with all home conveniences”
Reviewed November 6, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We spent the weekend at this lovely cosy cottage and look forward to going back. Everything you could possibly need is provided, even down to books and games.
Provisions were waiting for us on arrival and were greatly appreciated!
The lounge is very comfortable with great views into open countryside. The beds are super comfortable and the whole place was warm and cosy. I can't think of anything I could fault or would have liked to have had in addition to what is already supplied.
Bath, Bristol and lots of lovely places to eat and drink all within easy reach. Highly recommended!

“Excellent, first class and highly recommended.”
Reviewed September 17, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

A beautiful cottage in a lovely setting, home from home with all amenities.

Lettie and Will were delightful hosts who were available for any query in their adjacent property, they could not do enough to ensure we were happy. We even received fresh runner beans and tomatoes.

We have not had a cottage before and would highly recommend this charming venue.

We will come again and we have already recommended it to several friends, thank you for a wonderful break.

Own transport essential.

Reviewed August 16, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I wish I could pick this delightful cottage up and take it on every holiday. I seriously can't fault it. The beds were so comfy,the walk in shower and added bonus ,every home comfort you could imagine and to top it all a field of cows and a swing which kept my children (9 and 6)amused for hours. If I could only pick it up and take it nearer the beach. We had fantastic days in Bath and frome and just exploring the countryside 10/10

“Fantastic views & very welcoming hosts”
Reviewed May 31, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We've just returned home from a short break in Upper House Cottage. What a wonderful, relaxing property, the perfect retreat to come back to after visiting busy places like Bath & Cheddar Gorge. The cottage was very well equipped & the provisions left for us were really appreciated after a long journey down. The views to the front & back of the cottage are breathtaking. William & Lettie couldn't have been more welcoming & accommodating. Thank you both very much for a brilliant short break in a wonderful cottage.

“A tranquil base to explore the surrounding area.”
Reviewed April 1, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We had a fantastic short break. It flew by as there was so much to do within easy driving distance. The cottage offers a homely retreat in a beautifully tranquil setting. Our 6 year old loved every minute and wanted to stay for longer.

“Great house in a perfect location”
Reviewed December 31, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Found the house easily with Will's directions and sat nav. Plenty of parking, very clean and we found Will to be very accommodating and extremely helpful. The views from the house were beautiful and it took only 20 minutes by car to get to Bath. Thank you so much we will be back in spring.
