Guestbook comments from the owner
The weather has been glorious for most of the week which has meant we could sit out in your beautiful garden listening to all the birds and wildlife as it came and went. We loved the magnificent conservatory and comfy beds and made good use of the log burner on the colder evenings. It is an idyllic setting, very peaceful with only the natural woodland sounds and we were amazed at how clear and bright the moon and stars were without any light pollution. Excellent facilities, lots of wildlife and wonderful Spring sunshine. Many thanks for a great holiday.

Rest and Relaxation

  • 5 out of 5
Couldn't ask for more in this comfortable, well-equipped cottage. Despite the mixed weather we found plenty to do not only in the surrounding area but also in the property itself. The pool and the hot tub were well used and the selection of games in the cottage proved popular with all of us - as did the selection of videos and DVDs. The owners were always on hand if required but were completely unobtrusive otherwise. The garden centre, a short walk up the path from the cottage, was full of rustic charm and unusual plants for sale at reasonable prices. The cakes were great too!
A great, relaxing holiday - definitely worth a return visit.

Excellent facilities, perfect setting.

  • 5 out of 5
Spent the week here with grandchildren and it proved to be the perfect place. It is very clean, comfortable and well equiped. The conservatory is a great place to relax and very peaceful. You can easily spend a day on site as there are great toys and play equipment provided. The tea shop and fish pond, table football and games chalet and the hot tub all added to the enjoyment of our stay. Food at the local pub, 5 minutes walk away, was excellent. The seaside and steam train station at Watchet are a short drive away and a great place for adults and kids. The countryside is beautiful and there are many lovely walks. If you want peace and quiet, lovely scenery and entertainment for young children this is the place.

Great weekend break

  • 5 out of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely cottage.
Loved the conservatory and comfy beds and made good use of the log burner on the colder evenings. Langford Budville is very quiet but if you like walking and enjoying the views you will like Woodlands to come back to after your walk and make use of the hot tub which is heaven.
I'm sure we will be back soon.

Excellent in every Way

  • 5 out of 5
I haven't got one bad word to say, the description and previous reviews are so right, we spent a week away in April 2011 for the Easter holidays and didn't want to leave, the owners were lovely welcoming and have thought of everything to make sure you have an enjoyable stay, kids included, The cottage catered for our every need and indeed the local pub served wonderful food definately worth a visit. It was definately a peaceful retreat with nothing but birds singing and glorious views of the country side, definately a place you should have a car to get there but once there you cant want for anything my only advice is to stock up on shopping as there is nothing in Langford Budville, Ideal for walkers, explorers who love the outdoors but equally equipped for cosy days in. It is fair to say its the best cottage I have stayed in.
