“Gracious living!”
Reviewed September 4, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Five minute walk to Kings College (for cricket festival) or, in the other direction, Somerset County Cricket Ground, and two minute walk to the shops and Sainsbury's. Quiet street though, nice area. Beautifully decorated, immaculately clean cottage with lovely morning sun through the large bathroom window! High ceilings, real sash windows, light and bright. Gated off-road parking was great for peace of mind with the rental car. We arrived early and Julie, who is really nice, very helpfully came as soon as she could to let us in. Stairs to bedrooms are a little steeper than normal but fine for us though. Comfy beds.

“Lovely”
Reviewed August 5, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Stayed for the week while my son played at one of the cricket festivals at Kings. First impressions of the cottage and the owner were fantastic, even a home made cake!. Cottage its self is lovely, well decorated, well equipped and most of all spotlessly clean. Very handy for shops, restaurants and Somerset cricket ground. Near to takeaway restaurants if you want a night in. Added bonus of Private parking while is a god send in taunton.No criticism of the cottage at all. Would defiantly book again if I was in the same ares.

“Perfect cottage close to Taunton town centre”
Reviewed August 2, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

My family rented this cottage for an extended period in Spring and Summer 2016. The cottage is in an excellent location for Taunton's amenities, is well appointed and the owner, Julie, could not have been more helpful. Thoroughly recommended.

“Lovely cottage very central for taunton.”
Reviewed July 25, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Very central and a charming cottage with everything we needed and some nice added finishing touches from the owner. Very handy for kings college and the town centre. Area is a little noisy late in the evening and early morning which is kind of expected given central location. Just worth being aware of if you want total peace and quiet. We had a good stay.

“A beautiful cottage in a great location for Taunton town”
Reviewed June 13, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We were married in Taunton and stayed in this lovely, clean and comfortable cottage. It is within walking distance of Taunton town and has private parking in a safe gated area. We enjoyed our stay immensely and were delighted to find that the owner Julie had welcomed us with a bottle of champagne and wedding themed cupcakes. There was lots of information to hand regarding the cottage and its history and things to do in Somerset. I cannot find anything negative to say about Edith Cottage and all that goes with it and would like to thank Julie for making our stay so special. We will definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.

“Lovely cottage. Great base to explore area”
Reviewed June 3, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed for 4 nights whilst visiting family in Somerset and Devon. Edith cottage is very spacious, exceptionally clean and well maintained, with great attention to detail. Excellent WiFi coverage. Kitchen is well equipped (including washing machine and dishwasher) and the secure parking is a welcome addition.

Restaurants and bars are within walking distance of the cottage. Our only slight disappointment was the immediate surrounding area as it did not seem to be the best part of town and some of the nearby properties were a little unloved which was a shame to be set alongside such a beautiful 19th century cottage.

However, that said it was very quiet and did provide an excellent base to explore surrounding areas and within easy reach of motorway.
