We stayed here with friends back in May 2015, the cottage itself is beautiful! So much attention to detail, big fan of the white company products, especially the bath robes!! Very warm and homely, had the best nights sleep there, comfortable beds and fresh bedding. Heaven! Hot tub was a bonus and over looked very pretty scenery. Lisa and her partner were fantastic, very helpful and accommodating. Location is superb, peaceful, great place to go...

Was absolutely lovely to get away for a couple of nights and enjoy this beautiful home. The owners were very helpful and friendly and we got a lovely welcome to the place. Some beautiful walks and very nice pubs nearby and the hot-tub was certainly a treat! Will try to get back in the future for another break away.

A week in sunny September at the stables. Hardly used the car as the location allowed you lots of walking routes which always ended with a pub lunch and Somerset cider. Hot tub, gas barbacue, fresh flowers, Sky tv all added to the experience. Everything you could possibly need was in the cottage. Will be back. Thanks.
