Fantastic accomodation!
South Cleeve Bungalow is a very well set out place to stay with everything you could possibly need on-site to keep you entertained when not exploring this amazing part of the south west. Having a family holiday here kept my three kids aged 9-15 years old happy with trampoline, pool table, table tennis, darts, board games, DVD's and books which was really nice to see them off their laptops for a change. The outside enclosed space was really good to allow my disabled son to wander and know he was in a safe enviroment. Plus watching the amount of birds that feed from the bird feeders there was mesmerising! The rooms are of generous size and never felt crammed with the five of us staying. A really nice place to stay if you are looking to book accomodation in this part of Somerset.

Simply perfect!
We enjoyed a 2 week sunny holiday at South Cleeve Bungalow and cannot fault anything! On arrival we received a warm welcome along with a gorgeous lemon drizzle cake! The attention to detail at the bungalow is amazing, fully equipped for a family and doggies! The games room is equipped with everything you could possibly need to keep entertained in all weathers and the garden is perfect, very dog friendly and secure, we have 2 small doggies and even they couldn't find an escape route! Nothing is too much trouble for the owners, Vera and John, a lovely couple who will go above and beyond to ensure a perfect stay. We really hope to return to South Cleeve soon!

Fantastic stay at this beautiful bungalow
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at South Cleeve Bungalow. The gardens are absolutely stunning and we couldn’t have wished for more! Everything you need for a family break away. The games room kept a 9 year old, 6 year old and 1 year old very happy! The bungalow was very clean and the delicious lemon cake prepared for our arrival was a lovely touch. Vera was brilliant and extremely welcoming. We would definitely love to return in the future. Thank you!

Fantastic
A real hidden gem of Churchinford. We loved our stay at South Cleeve Bungalow it was amazing so peaceful. On arrival we were a little early but were greeted by the lovely owner Vera who was busy filling the bird feeders in the garden. As we entered we found a lovely cake with a cup of tea waiting for us (milk was in the fridge) we felt very spoiled but it was very appreciated after the drive. The village shop is very well stocked and just a 3 minute drive away or a very nice level stroll that takes about 15 minute, the village pub looked lovely and in the summer would be lovely for an evening walk into the village. We loved to watch the many birds visiting the garden, at night you are even greeted by a Tawny Owl. My dog loved to have a run around each evening till she discovered she could go out of one door and then wait at the other to come back in, this became her regular game, I dont think she has had such luxury before. The bungalow really is a home from home, everything we needed was there and was so comfortable, warm and clean. We would definitely like to visit again and will highly recommend to family and friends

Great place to relax and allows a dog to stay.
The bungalow is in just the right place to get to local and nearby places. The good thing for us was that we can take the dog with us as dogs are part of the family and go on holiday with you. Large enclosed garden that is safe to let them play in without having to worry. There is everything that you need supplied in the bungalow and a games room. Needs new cues for the pool table as only one that is possible to use and that’s bent. We only found one negative in the two weeks we were there and that is, lack of Blackout curtains as we were all woken up every morning around 4am with the sun shining right in the face. Would recommend Churchinford community shop for all your bits but if you needed a bigger shop there are supermarkets on 20 minutes away. A nice day out is a ride on the West Somerset Railway from Bishops Lydeard Station to Minehead Station with 8 stops between for you to investigate if you wish. It states wheelchair friendly but it would be OK if you can also walk a small amount as getting in to the bedrooms is very tight. Outside is not possible to get around unless again you can walk a small amount. I found getting in and out of the bungalow was fine but with most of outside gravel and grass it did mean staying in most of the time.

Thank you very much for your kind review I am sorry about the cues I always ask visitors to let me know if any problems as we only live 75yds away and are always ready to help and have always got spares of nearly everything I actually noticed them last week and put three news ones. It was a pleasure meeting you both

Superb bungalow in fabulous location
A lovely welcome from Vera with a tray of cakes! A very lovely, roomy and well equipped bungalow. The games room was a bonus with snooker, table tennis and darts and outdoor badminton net. Nicely located in the country but central for getting around and visiting towns and places of interest. A most enjoyable and comcortable week. Thank you Vera and John.

A truly wonderful 'home from home', quiet location, all you could possibly need in a holiday let.
What can I say? We loved staying here so much that we didn't want to leave :( It really is home from home with everything you could possibly need. The games room was a fantastic addition and certainly kept the children entertained, as well as the large garden. The bungalow is huge and there was plenty of room for the five of us to feel like we could have our own space when needed. The bungalow is ideally situated in a quiet area with all the places we wanted to visit within easy reach. We visited Taunton, Cheddar Gorge, Longleat, Weston-Super-Mare, Dunster Castle, Montacute House, Lyme Regis & Charmouth. There are still plenty more places we would like to visit, so will definitely be returning! Vera and John are a delightful couple and so helpful. We look forward to seeing you both again.

Lovely new year break
We booked at the last minute to stay at this bungalow over the new year weekend 2016/2017. The bungalow is in an ideal location to visit Somerset, Dorset and Devon. The bungalow was very clean, comfortable and did feel like a home from home. We spent a few happy hours in the games room which had darts and a pool table. We will be definitely be coming back!! Oh and the lemon cake was amazing. Thank you Vera.
