Another great stay at Flaxhayes. Beautiful, peaceful location, within easy reach of town amenities and the coast. Sara is a lovely host, on hand to answer questions or offer recommendations. Had a lovely meal at Winyard Gap (great garden views!). We hope to return another time.

Huge garden and loads of space in the house. Love the little shed and seating areas. Quite a long way from any shops or pubs, but that meant it was really peaceful. Not much in Crewekerne but not too far to drive to the coast where there's plenty to do.

Lovely house in excellent location with beautiful views. Space for children to play and older members of party to retreat, if needed. Plenty of parking and farm animals to watch, if wanted. A nice touch to provide a barbeque and garden games. Host readily available to deal with any issues. Would not hesitate to return if we had a similar size partyRead more. Thank you. Hide

Absolutely fabulous house in the most glorious location. Ideal for dogs with an enclosed and secluded garden. The owner was very welcoming and in fact provided birthday treats and decorations because she knew it was my mothers 90th birthday.

Flaxhayes exceeded all expectations, the photos of the property dont do it justice. The garden is just beautiful, the views are stunning and the house is very spacious and comfortable. Sara was a dream host, made everything easy and could easily be contacted if needed. We had a wonderful week and would definitely recommend.

Wow the property is much better than the photos, its huge inside but felt like a home. Everything you could want is provided. It was the much needed retreat from the world we needed. The views are stunning. Very friendly greeting with Sara, who explained various things. Highly recommend this wonderful property.

The position of this property was lovely for us as we love the peace and quiet of the countryside with walks straight from the house. If you like horses there are plenty of them around and near to the property. Also a short journey to the south coast which we enjoyed.
