We had a great stay and the house is lovely and garden is great for the kids. Bernie has really done a first rate job outfitting the home for guests. We had everything we needed. Well almost. A couple of fans would have been nice for sleeping. The home blends historical features w modern conveniences. The down stairs shower was quite a hit. Edington is quite convenient to so many places of interest. Wells, Bath, Glastonbury and the Coast were enjoyed by us during our stay. Would gladly stay again. Cheers Jon

Very characterful comfortable cottage

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely 3 day stay, cottage is incredibly well equipped with all essentials and basic store cupboard bits and bobs. The welcome pack was a lovely touch. Only essential that seemed to be missing was an iron and ironing board! Would gladly stay again if we were ever in the area

Delightful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in the cottage. The cottage had everything we needed to cook our own meal. We loved using the back yard for some relaxation time and the host was so happy to help us find historical places to explore. We found the convienience store across the road stocked all our needs. The local guide book and activities are plentiful. We loved our stay and highly recomend it.

Lovely cottage, really friendly owners!

  • 5 of 5

My brothers and I took my mother away for a weekend in Glastonbury for her birthday. The cottage was lovely; super clean, decorated really well and it includes everything you could ever need including some nice complimentary bits for breakfast! The owners are very organized with check-in and access instructions as well. We also met them when we arrived and they we really friendly and accommodating. We had a lovely weekend and couldn't thank them enough :-)

Lovely cottage and great location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our week, the cottage is comfortable and roomy and well kitted out. We really appreciated the welcome goodies. Edington is a great location with shop across the road and good local pubs to walk to and lots of places nearby to visit. The children had a great time playing in the garden on the trampoline . Many thanks to the Kortensen family for their help and welcome.

A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This has been such a lovely place to stay. Kore and Bernedette were so welcoming and helpful - we could not have asked for better hosts. There were amenities very close by - shop and a pub - and there was plenty to do within an easy travelling distance.

I would recommend this cottage wholeheartedly!
