The cottage was lovely and clean with everything you could need. Comfy furniture and spacious lounge/diner. Location wise was very well placed for Stourhead and Longleat and an hours drive from Bristol.

Small but well thought out and comfortable. Good location in the middle of lots to do but driving essential to get anywhere.

Had a wonderful holiday. Location of cottage was very central to many places. Longleat Safari Park was only a few roads away. Beds very comfortable. Everything we needed for our stay was provided. No complaints at all.

Jeremy and Janet gave us a warm welcome and provided useful information about the cottage and what Is going on in the area. The cottage itself is very comfortable, well decorated and appointed and we made goRead moreod use of the south facing terrace. It was just what we needed to help us unwind for a few days. Thank you - truly delightful. Hide
