The owners of the cottage were really friendly and helpful in giving us suggestions of things to do in the area. The fresh eggs and honey were lovely upon arrival. The cottage had everything that you could want during a stay.

A lovely quiet location whilst close to A303 for easy access. Great local pubs. Walks too so a great place to take the dogs.

Sarah gave us a warm and friendly welcome. The cottage was home from home and everything was very easy to use without too much effort. It was very relaxing.

We really enjoyed our stay in polo cottage. Well kept property, central location, easy to find and plenty of room. We would recommend staying there. The eggs were a nice touch as well.

Everything we need was available. The cottage is in a wonderful location and would have loved to have stayed there longer. We struggled a bit with the cooker controls and had to resort to reading the manuals (:-)) but got there in the end. Would definitely recommend the pub in Queen Camel than the one nearby, but the 2 mile walk is both pleasant anRead mored perfect after a great meal. Hide

Had a lovely stay at Polo Cottage with our dog. Sarah was very welcoming and left a box of fresh eggs from her hens with us (very tasty). The living/dining area was lovely, with very high ceilings to give a lovely spacious feel. The wet-room shower was fabulous. Lovely area, nice and quiet, short drive from nice, dog-friendly pubs/restaurants.

Very comfortable, attractive cottage where they've thought of everything. Recently refurbished so everything is in excellent condition. You also know that if you needed anything you would only need to ask. Off road parking too.

Nice cottage for two people, very comfortable and dog friendly. Plenty of books and games to use in wet weather. We were there in the New Year so was very wet so could not take advantage of the footpaths around the village. The pub was quite expensive to eat but the beer was good and were happy to have the dog in there when we found it open.
