The accommodation was fantastic, comfortable and spacious with a touch of luxury throughout - but not so much as you felt the children couldn't move for fear of breaking something! The weather was fabulous but just hanging around in the cottage was a pleasure so rainy days wouldn't have been a chore. The location is the best thing about this cottage; the most wonderful cider farm in Somerset is a short walk, Wells a 20 minute drive and Glastonbury less so. Wedmore two miles up the road has great pubs ( The George was great for kids) and local supplies allowing for local shopping. It's the perfect place for those who love cider, cheese, pubs, heritage and countryside rambles. Highly recommended and we've stayed in a lot of cottages!

The surrounding area is synonymous of the idyllic Mendips. The cottage was well equipped, functional and cosy. Ideally located for us, only 1 hour to Longleat, 20 minutes to Wells and 25 minutes to Wookey Hole. This accommodation is certainly one that we would like to return to.

Good location for Bath and West Showground but also for Wells and Glastonbury. Lovely walks straight out the door.
