Took the family here in mid August and loved the place. It is on the levels and if I am honest it is a bit of a trek if you want to do some of the sites of Somerset like cheddar gorge or wookey hole. But trek aside, it was a wonderful place and worth the trek to stay in such a location. Great welcome from the owners - you get a cake, tea bags and milk - just what you need after a 270 mile drive and not something we've had before. The cottage was perfectly clean and well equipped throughout. The cottage (we were in the cider house) slept 5 and it was a good size for this number of people. A huge main bedroom for mum and dad, a smaller single room and a twin room (not bunks) so whatever mix of children you have are covered. You have your own private, off-street parking and shared use of the pool and games room. The pool is large enough for a decent swim and isn't swamped if 2-3 families are in there. There is a jacuzzi as well which is wonderful. Changing room, toilet and shower are always spotless. The games room has a good quality pool table (chargeable) and table tennis along with piano and pamphlets about the local attractions. There was wifi ,although the signal wasnt great (i didnt care though, it was a holiday). There is a shop in the (pretty) village which is good for basics but for larger shops we went to the sainsburys in Taunton. There are other supermarkets there but this was closest. The town of Taunton had good shopping opportunities and the orchard centre is one of the best places to head. We had satnav which was handy as the taunton one way system was a tad tricky. So. Will we go back? Absolutely. Same place? Definitely.
