Fabulous for peace, quiet and countryside views. Very comfortable beds and a good location for visiting a wide variety of attractions. Lovely outside seating areas if you are lucky with the weather. Prior to our arrival it took many attempts before I was able to contact the owner so you may need to be persistent with this.

Lovely views from property. A little bit isolated. Village shop no longer exists. Property could benefit from more comfortable and spacious seating. A well equipped kitchen with everything you need to self-cater provided. If not having a food delivery make sure you take basic supplies for your arrival.

Beautiful lodge, with fabulous views. Really well equipped kitchen and comfortable beds made for a relaxed holiday. Barbecues on the decking were a perfect way to spend an evening. Beautiful spot, and a cuppa in the morning with the sheep just outside is surely as rural as you can get. Dont leave without a visit to the Ring O Bells down the road.

The lodge was beautiful with sweeping views of Somerset. It was fully equipped, modern and very clean.
