A cottage away from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives. Perfect retreat. Ideally situated for all Somerset tourist attractions. Friendly goats and chickens who loved to pop and say hello to our teenage boys who also loved the rope swing. Property offered everything needed for a perfect escape... Welcome pack ideal and the cottage was very modern and contemporary and would definitely recommend to all.

Facilities were first rate, with everything you could need in a home away from home. Lovely friendly pub and shop just across the road, plenty of space for everyone, comfy beds and heavenly showers. Three miles from Cheddar Gorge and not much further to Wells. Close enough to Bristol for visits to the city. What more can I say? Perfect!!
