Tawnies is a really lovely, comfortable cottage. The garden areas are beautiful and peaceful. Location is rural but there are so many places to explore within driving distance. Walking from the Wetlands & Willows Centre (2 mins walk away) is ideal with lovely views across the Somerset Levels. The owners have thought of everything and the cottage isRead more very well looked after and spotless! Hide

Excellent location for visiting local attractions. The bungalow had been equipped thoughtfully and the owner took us round to tell us all we needed to know. Small but beautiful garden with an arbour well positioned to catch the evening sun.
