Dog friendly, with a fully secure garden for your four legged friend. Philip is attentive, residing on the same road for any ad-hoc queries (if required). Comfortable and clean accommodation, with shared access via Payton farm. Please can I suggest a small 'Somerset' welcome pack for arrivals, for example: milk. After a long car journey this would be greatly appreciated. Our recent visit to San Francisco did this, so I am sure Wellington can too!

Lots of basics were supplied and a bottle of wine, packet of cookies and orange blossom in a wee vase waiting for us on the kitchen table. A lovely quiet village but within easy driving distance of Dunster and Minehead.
