Very comfortable and well equipped cottage in quiet rural location. It is about 45 minutes from the coast so not quite ideal if this is your priority.

A fabulous property in a wonderful rural location. Superbly equipped with everything needed for a relaxing holiday. Accessible for my son who uses a wheelchair with a marvelous walk in shower. Our dog was even provided for with a towel and snacks as well as the fists by Nutmeg. We have already booked to return.

Lovely cottage in a peaceful setting - even when it's raining! Comfortable sofas and beds, great showers and a kitchen with all mod cons! If you're looking for a relaxing holiday with a bit of luxury then this is is the cottage for you. Worthy of its 5 stars.

Of all the holiday cottages we have been to the Cowshed is absolutely the most stunning, very tasteful decoration and gorgeous location. Everything is top quality, the bed was so comfortable and obviously a quality mattress. Smart TV / DVD, everything you'd expect from a home. We enjoyed sitting looking over the fields with a glass or two. Our dog Read moreloved the location,walks from the cottage to local pubs for meals. The Chetnole Inn and The Kings Arms in Thornford both have amazing food. Hide

Absolutely stunning place. We lucked out with the weather and so got to sit out in the garden watching both sunrise and sunset every day which was bliss.

Beautiful Cottage in rural setting with nice views. The Cottage was warm and the beds were very comfortable, making for a lovely relaxed weekend away.

We had an excellent break in a very comfortable and peaceful setting. Be prepared to explore the immediate area with suitable walking gear, and don't forget to take binoculars, as there are plenty of birds to spot. Pubs and other things to do within reasonable commute.

We could not have had a more relaxed week. The Cowshed is highly recommended. Everything we needed on hand. Right in the heart of the countryside, but so many places to visit locally. We would rate this a 5 star .

Reviewed by Christine, 28th October 2016

The Cowshed is a comfortable well appointed property, all on one level, with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Having an ensuite bedroom at each end of the property gives privacy for two couples or, as in our case, two friends. The views from the property are beautiful, giving a very rural feel although near to the main Yeovil to DorcesteRead morer road. We would definitely return. Hide

Reviewed by Philip, 21st October 2016

Perfect property to get away from it all. Very quiet location in the country side with beautiful scenery. The property has everything you would need for a comfortable stay. The coast is about a 40 minute car ride away, but there are nice walks in the local lanes which can be narrow so watch out for cars !! Would consider staying here again.

Reviewed by Peter, 7th October 2016

Having been renting holiday cottages for at least 40 years I can honestly say that this is the best one yet. Everything was just perfect and nothing could be faulted. The owners must be congratulated on the very high standard.
