Ideallic holiday location

  • 4 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 30-Oct-2012

We received a lovely welcome from Roy (the owner) and Huxley (Hux for short, the black labrador).
If you wish a quiet, relaxing break, there is no better location than this cosy comfortable cottage.
The cottage is set in beautiful gardens and the only noise is from the garden pond and birds singing. It was lovely returning to the cottage at the end of the day to either relax in the garden or close the door and enjoy the cosy comfortable interior.
It is an ideal location for visiting Somerset and surrounding counties and Roy was able to provide excellent information about places to visit. A visit to the Roman Baths and also the Modern Baths should not be missed.
All in all a very enjoyable holiday.
I would recommend this cottage to anyone wishing a relaxing, peaceful holiday. It would be suitable for couples or families with small children. Plenty of places to visit within a short distance. A car is essential for this location.

Cottage in the country

  • Review Submitted: 17-Aug-2012

Great location, wonderfully rural with only a 30 minute drive to Bath. Right out the front door to country foot paths taking us to a local restaurant or into the country.
They have a marvelous main garden which connects to our own sweet little garden in front of the cottage, complete with a pond. Diverse movies and a large bookcase were unexpected treats.

The town of Frome is interesting to visit and only about 15 minutes away. We enjoyed Cheap Street with the stream running down the center and all the little shops and restaurants.

The hosts are genuinely nice people, very helpful when needed and also gave us our privacy. We enjoyed our stay very much!
Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed it after travelling all the way from America !

Wonderful, quiet location

What a beautiful location! The garden is enchanting, our children loved it. Roy and Mo are amazing hosts that made our short visit even better. Our GPS took us right to the street, and a small sign pointed into the driveway. Great location for hiking and near a quarry for scuba, 20 minute drive from Bath and much closer to several small towns. The house is comfortable, clean, well maintained, and easily accommodates 7 people. Satellite TV and a DVD collection helped pass the down time, and excellent art on all the walls. The freezer is located across the garden, and had plenty of room for food. We didn't use the clothes washer or line to dry clothes. They provided wireless internet, but the signal is weak.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for the review. The wireless signal is good but it is important that the router is switched over to the barn

Pleasant Stay

  • Review Submitted: 22-May-2011

We had a very enjoyable stay at Roy & Mo's converted barn. Having breakfast outside looking over the beautiful garden was a joy, and we had everything we needed in the comfortable cottage.

The surrounding countryside was beautiful and there were lovely walks from the door.

Roy & Mo were helpful without being intrusive, advising us where to eat and even letting us use their laptop to investigate.

We look forward to returning.
