We have stayed at the cottage now three time and ever time we always receive a warm welcome. We stay there because it is close to Bath, which enable us to visit Bath Market which the main reason way we this cottage ever year.

A great location in Somerset, just outside Bath. This was our second stay there, and will definitely stay again.

Location- wonderfully rural. Sited on a pony trekking centre. Lots of activity all the time and the ponies were lovely to pet even for a non-equestrian. Also very central to lots of great attractions: longleat, canals, seaside (about an hours drive), even Stonehenge is not a huge drive. Accommodation- plenty of room for 6 people, games, jigsaws, boRead moreoks in plentiful supply. Disabled facilities were great. Easy access bedroom with wet room en-suite. Just a note- take a fly swatter. Hide

Great place to stay with a push bike not so good with a large dog, walking is a problem to many cows and horses in fields.

Clean and comfortable. Lovely location right on the yard of Wellow Horse Trekking.

Absolutely loved this place and I can't rate the accommodation highly enough. I have never stayed anywhere so well equipped. I loved the fact that that you look out the window directly onto the horses. If you love animals, you'll love it here but expect to be staying in a very busy working Trekking centre. We booked a couple of rides and clay shootRead moreing and the booking system didn't seem to work too well as there was confusion with both rides but was all sorted in the end. Wonderful! Hide

Wonderful location. Even though right in the middle of a busy stables, we still had enough privacy. Easy access to Sustrans cycle/pathway through the amazing Two Tunnels. Great cafe on site and pub in Wellow, just five minutes walk away. Very well equipped kitchen.

Very well kept and fully equipped for family stay.

The cottage is in the middle of a working trekking centre so early starts with the horses wake you up. The village of Wellow which is about a 5 minute walk away is lovely and the Fox and Badger pub serves really good food, particularly good value at lunch time.

We had a wonderful holiday, lovely friendly welcome, cottage was clean and homely . Staff friendly and excellent disabled facilities. Would highly recommend.

Reviewed by Simon, 11th August 2018

Fully equipped, with a lovely feel. The ability of cycling into Bath without going on a Road is a great bonus. The cottage is in the middle of a busy riding school, and farm, which is full of activity during the day, but peace and quiet can be found just a couple of minutes walk or ride away, or you can exercise the kids on the large kids play areaRead more. The on site cafe serves lovely food, and the Fox & Badger serve excellent food, and well kept ales. Overall a wonderful family cottage. Hide
