Fantastic!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property went beyond our expectations. We stayed for a week and it wasn't long enough.

This was our first holiday in the UK for 12 years. The cottage had everything you needed from cooking utensils to towels.The property was really cleanand well maintained.

We are a family with an 8 and 4 year old and they had so much fun, especially in the hot tub and the play area. The property kept them amused to with a selection of games, toys and also the piano (and my daughter thought she'd have a week off from her piano practice!!).

The rooms were lovely and the master bedroom bed was so comfortable (I really miss it) and the room was so light.

The kitchen was well stocked with appliances, pots, pans and of course the range cooker.

Outside was beautiful, from the gardens to the walk up the lane to the nursery where the chicken are and 'Scarlets Garden' (excellent cream tea).

The owners etc. were really helpful with any problem you had.

The hot tub was a luxury and and night was enhanced with the fairy light and of course a spot of bubbly.

There is a lot to do and see in the area and the cottage is well placed for visiting both the North and South Coast (would recommend the south though).

It was unfortunate that the village pub isn't really a 'proper' pub, more of an eatery but we didn't mind as we enjoyed eating as a family in the cottage. It was just a shame that we weren't able to use the BBQ due the the Enhlish weather.

I would recommend is property as we loved every minute of it and will definitely going back In the future.

17th - 21st Apr '17

We were really hoping the place would be just like the photos. It was. But it was even better. We 100% felt at home from the moment we entered the holiday home. Having a downstairs bedroom with its own shower was ideal.

It was spotless and everything you needed in the kitchen was supplied. Plenty of towels. Lots of things to do ... Games, dvds, videos, sky channels etc.

We were extremely lucky with the weather and enjoyed the BBQ and used the hot tub every evening.

Would recommend this to anyone.

Wow what a lovely place

  • 5 of 5

wow what a beautiful place we have just got back from visiting the cottage and can say we have really enjoyed it there. The cottage was beautifully kept and well looked after. We had a lovely surprise to find all the requirements there you need to stay the weekend. We really enjoyed the private hot tub and the local surrounding in the woods and the walks. We cant wait to go back again

Excellent facilities, perfect setting.

  • 5 of 5

Spent the week here with grandchildren and it proved to be the perfect place. It is very clean, comfortable and well equiped. The conservatory is a great place to relax and very peaceful. You can easily spend a day on site as there are great toys and play equipment provided. The tea shop and fish pond, table football and games chalet and the hot tub all added to the enjoyment of our stay. Food at the local pub, 5 minutes walk away, was excellent. The seaside and steam train station at Watchet are a short drive away and a great place for adults and kids. The countryside is beautiful and there are many lovely walks. If you want peace and quiet, lovely scenery and entertainment for young children this is the place.
