“what a wonderful idyll!”
Reviewed June 25, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We spent ten absolutely gorgeous days in this lovely cottage. There's plenty of space with three bedrooms, two restrooms, bath, kitchen, fireplace and living room.

The spacious garden is stunning, you could spend hours watching rabbits, hens and squirrels passing and rambling by.

Our hosts have been the most lovely ones we ever had - being available for whatever issues while granting us any privacy we wanted at the same time.

We were already impressed with the nice and timely communication from the very first contact and it even continues after our holidays.

We felt so comfortable all the time and could relax ultimatively at this peaceful and totally quiet place. There are plenty of public foot paths starting at the cottage so we could spend hours with hiking on the countryside.

There are several supermarkets within a 10-15 minutes drive and the kitchen does provide anything you need for self catering if you want.

The heating had a power failure during our stay and our hosts were impressively responsible for having it fixed immediately. All installations and equipment in the house are of high quality and best maintained.

For anyone who might suspect an assessment in favour - it's the opposite. We had an outstanding time and feel that we should clearly point this out!

“Absolutely beautiful!”
Reviewed April 19, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Friendly, helpful owners. Immaculate and well equipped house. Great rural location with easy access to main roads. Retail therapy at Clarks Shopping Village (which is a 10-15 minute drive) is fantastic. Would definitely return to Walnut Cottage.

“Perfect cottage in a beautiful, peaceful location”
Reviewed April 18, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Stayed in Walnut Cottage for 4 days over Easter with our family. The cottage is large and very well equipped and the garden is huge and perfect for families. We loved watching the birds, chickens and rabbits in the garden. The owners who live nearby are very welcoming and friendly. Would highly recommend Walnut Cottage. Wells, Glastonbury and Street are all nice places to visit.

“Perfect”
Reviewed January 16, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We stayed here for two weeks in January. The cottage is immaculate and very comfortable. Rooms are bright and warm, kitchen excellent, large with everything you could need. Plenty of space, good showers. Lovely garden though weather was not good when we were there but it was a pleasant view. Very quiet and peaceful.

“Great family cottage”
Reviewed December 30, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Fantastic cottage with everything you could need for a positively relaxing and enjoyable stay. The property is on a really quiet lane so it's very peaceful. We went with two young kids and they loved the garden which is equipped with a clubby house and chickens roaming around. Good access to neighbouring sights. Theresa and Adrian are great hosts and we will be back - thank you

When I found this cottage for a 6th August stay, for the price we paid, I thought "There must be a catch!" But there wasn't. Theresa and Adrian were fantastic and the house was simply beautiful! An extremely clean and spacious house, with an enormous and fully enclosed garden, trampoline, play house and swing, meant we were left to just relax and let the kids roam around free! There are plenty of pubs nearby and the town is just a 15 minute drive, so location was also excellent. I cannot say enough about Walnut Cottage but we were all sad to leave this morning and would 100% return!

Wow, what a lovely place, didn't want to leave. Everything, and more, is provided at this cottage. Fabulous kitchen - probably better stocked than my own home regarding utensils etc. With a family of 5 it was so easy with everything we needed and, plenty of space. Lovely cosy living area, even a selection of books and dvds (for kids and grown-ups), and toys for younger children provided. 3 lovely size bedrooms with beds so comfy we didn't want to get up! Soft towels in the bathroom and shower room. The owners seem to have thought of everything - even bath toys and child's toilet seat. You really don't need to bring much. The real jewel for us was the garden. Huge, with seating area, bbq, trampoline and playhouse, we spent lots of our holiday in the garden-even in the rain! We didn't manage to find the local shop, but supermarkets are about 15 minute drive away in either Glastonbury or Street. The property is in a good location for exploring Somerset and the South West. ComparatIvely, this house is really good value for money. My family loved staying in this cottage and hope to visit again.
