“Immaculate, and very well equipped in an ideal location for garden visits”
Reviewed June 7, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Avalon Cottage was perfect for us, as it is so close to a number of beautiful gardens, many National Trust, including Montacute House, Barrington Court, Tintinhuill and Lytes Cary Manor. In fact East Lambrook Manor garden is just five minutes walk away. We also visited Bath, one and a quarter hours, and Wells under an hour away, both very well worth a trip. The cottage itself is spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and very well equipped for a couple; the little conservatory was a very relaxing place to sit, and we enjoyed evening walks directly from the property on public footpaths through meadows covered in buttercups..

“Just perfect for two”
Reviewed March 26, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Found this cottage last minute when we were invited to a surprise party. It was a perfect location for us to attend the party in the local pub and for us to catch up with old friends in the nearby area. The accommodation is well appointed, well equipped and very comfortable. The shower was great, plenty of hot water and powerful too. A good size, good quality bed made our stay great. As it is outside the village street lights it was great to see millions of stars because of the clear night. Absolutely no traffic noise whatsoever gave us a perfect sleep considering we had just flown in from a trip to India. Heating system was efficient and kept us snug. The only thing missing for us was a washing machine.

“Fantastic cottage, very comfortable!”
Reviewed January 6, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We spent 5 nights in this wonderful cottage around New Year. We were surprised by how well it was fitted out; everything we could have wished for was provided. It was warm and cosy and our hosts Isabel and Peter were most friendly and helpful.
The cottage is easy to find and there is spacious off road parking. There is a modern kitchen with full appliances, but there's also a great pub within 5 mins walk. The bathroom provides a very good shower. The bed is the most comfortable one we ever slept in and from our bedroom window we could see sheep grazing. Excellent location for exploring the beatiful Somerset/Dorset countryside.
Lovely and peaceful! We look forward to coming again.

Management Response

Thankyou for your kind review. With regard to your comment about the heating we called out the heating people and they did find a 'flow rate' problem, which they resolved, so we are pleased to say the system is now working fine.
