Wonderful stay as always!
This is our 5th or 6th visit to the cottage, and it is perfect in every way! We love staying here, the cottage is always clean and tidy, and well presented. It is considered our 2nd home! Close to a BP garage where we can get a last minute dinner, the farm show is a short drive away and have some fab fresh fruit and veg on offer. Longleat Safari is a must! Thank you Caroline and Pat :)

Thank you! We are so happy that you consider our cottage to be a second home. We agree that it is very handy having the M&S Simply Food at the petrol station as well as White Row farm shop. See you again soon.

Comfortable Cottage
Well cottage has plenty of charm and historical interest and contains everything you need for a short break exploring east Somerset and west Wiltshire. The bedrooms are comfortable and the kitchen is very well equipped. Whilst we did have a problem with the dishwasher, Pat and Caroline had it replaced within in a few hours. You do get a bit of traffic noise from the road outside during the day but this did not disturb us at night. Compared with other cottages/houses available around Bristol and Bath over the Autumn half-term, Well cottage was very good value.

Thank you so much for the lovely review. We appreciated you notifying us so promptly of the dishwasher stopping working part-way through your stay. The least we could was to replace it quickly. We look forward to welcoming you back.

Perfect stay in cosy cottage
We had a short break in Well Cottage after lockdown restrictions were relaxed in Spring 2021. What a lovely place to enjoy a change of scene and to get out and about again. The location is excellent. We were able to visit the local pub, farm shop and bakery/cafe (all very good). The village is full of historic character and is well situated for trips out to nearby towns and villages, and other attractions. Well Cottage is a really special place to stay. It's cosy, but rooms are spacious. We enjoyed the log fires on the chilly Spring evenings, and catching the sun in the back yard in the afternoon. The kitchen is well equipped, and the house is well furnished, cared for and beautifully presented. The lavender products in the bathroom were a lovely touch of luxury. Simply a great place for a relaxed break.

Perfect cottage in charming village
Whether you are looking for a quiet retreat, a romantic weekend, a base for walking and exploring the local area or a base from which to work, you will find everything you need at Well Cottage (well, you will have to arrange the romance for yourselves). I have stayed many times over four or five years (for all of the reasons above) and I feel at home from the moment I arrive. Parking is always available right outside the door. The cottage is warm and welcoming, with central heating and a log burner and with a basket of logs and kindling provided. The kitchen is perfectly equipped, always sparklingly clean and well organised (and has a dishwasher). The bedrooms are lovely, the main bedroom is spacious and both beautifully furnished and the beds are super comfortable. I find myself thinking just five more minutes in bed... The bathroom is always spotless with a great shower and heavenly scented toiletries provided. The cottage has a good wifi connection and, on this occasion, I was answering work emails before breakfast. There are country walks right from the doorstep and my car often stays put, whilst we walk local footpaths to Frome or take the bus to Bath. In the evening, we have a glass of wine in the courtyard garden or in front of the log burner. The cottage is just wonderful come rain or shine. The village has a couple of good pubs and an amazing café. The M&S food hall at the end of the village is useful and the White Row Farm Shop has delicious local produce. We also like to walk to a neighbouring village (Rode) to another great pub and have torches for the return journey after dark (back to the log burner). Well Cottage has a place in my heart and the owners, Caroline and Pat, have made me feel very welcome over the years and also now have a place in my heart. I hope to visit again soon with family, friends and my partner (not all together) and enjoy everything this delightful cottage has to offer.
