In a great position with a lovely pub about a 5 minute walk away, and cheddar gorge around 25 minutes away. Plenty of walks starting in the village too. Judith, the owner, was probably the best host I've stayed with, very polite and nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely recommend to friends and family and anyone else reading this post.

The owners are welcoming and helpful and good neighbours. The house itself lends itself to our friends and family needs. The 3 bathrooms upstairs is a huge plus, the rooms are well furnished and comfortable. Having 2 living rooms - one with a tv and one without is a plus - Granny gets to watch her soaps and we don't. The kitchen is very well equipped and with 2 ovens and a grill it is easy to cook for crowds. The table seats 10 of us for special occasions and it's a pleasant space. The utility room is cool so we keep the veg down there, the laundry facilities are VERY handy as we rotate guests in and out and keep washing the sheets! The owner puts a tree up for us each Christmas. It's welcoming, it's comfortable and we are going back again for Christmas of 2017! That says it all. We highly recommend it for families at any time of year. Must be glorious in the summer! Oh - and in winter we go to the RSPB site at Ham Wall and watch the 750,000 starlings come to roost in the reed beds. Excellent!!
