“Country idyll”
Reviewed October 2, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This is an absolute delight. Beautiful setting, delightful accommodation, warm welcome from Neil and Susan including home made bread, local cider and eggs. The bamboo bed linen in this charming little converted wagon made every night a joy and the wood burning stove was cosy and welcoming. I adore Gabriel's Wagon and will be booming again in the New Year. Thank you for a lovely holiday!

“Best holiday ever!”
Reviewed July 4, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Susan and Neil couldn't have made us feel any more welcome. The moment we arrived they greeted us with smiles, all the information we could need, and yummy food for the following day's breakfast. The description was accurate but couldn't do justice to this wonderful get-away-from-it-all location. The neighbourhood is a hilltop lane, surrounded by fields. With the exception of Susan and Neil, our only neighbours were the birds and a nearby herd of cows.

We spent a long weekend in Gabriel's Wagon for our first trip away from home with our 3-month old daughter. It couldn't have been more perfect! On arrival, the view from the wagon is breathtaking and the cosy interior matches that. Susan and Neil were wonderful hosts, delivering pizza and supplies to our door. There are lots of local walks and Bruton is a short stroll away, with great eateries and a renowned contemporary art gallery. We particularly loved cooking our last night's dinner out on the firepit while admiring the view.

Happy on the Hill is the perfect country retreat. Situated amongst the rolling Somerset hills, it provides fantastic views as well as easy access to local attractions such as the Hauser & Wirth gallery. Susan and Neil are wonderful hosts and provide anything you'd possibly need, from great local food and drink to advice on where to visit during your stay. Thoroughly recommended!!
