This cottage was a gem of a find; cozy, comfortable beautifully furnished with everything you need for a relaxing time away. The owner was friendly and extremely helpful with her local knowledge of the area, and provided some lovey touches e.g. Fresh flowers on the table and a delicious cake to welcome us. We really enjoyed our time away and will dRead moreeffinitely book it again. Hide

Lovely cottage in a perfect location. Well equipped comfy cosy cottage with all you will need for a home from home vacation. Location opens up the South and West coast plus various great attractions within easy reach. Close to Wincanton for supplies with kind friendly owners. A must for a family of four. Excellent value.
