    The stay at barrowswood was brilliant with the location central to the places we wanted to visit.All the facilities at the house were first class and if I visited this area again I would not hesitate to Re-book.

    Lovely cottage, very well equipped. Great for a family with the two lounge areas. Lovely big garden and the apples from the orchard were a bonus, Thank you! Walks straight from the door. We even went to the local film evening in Cheddar, can recommend it. Cooking on the aga was so easy and it warmed the whole house. Would definitely return.

    A lovely place for a family celebration; with a good, social space as well as places to retreat for a little peace and quiet. Barrowswood is spacious, comfortable,clean and well equipped. The gardens, paddock and orchard are ideal for a morning stroll or to sit and watch the sunrise over the Mendips (or to watch the stars on a clear night, due to the low light-pollution). Although it is in a lovely quiet location it is within an hour's drive of the big cities of Bristol and Bath, and the seaside at Burnham and Weston-Super-Mare and five minutes from Cheddar Village and Gorge. There would be no hesitation in recommending Barrowswood as an ideal holiday base.

    We found Barrowswood an ideal house for 3 generations of the family, lots of room and a eehomely feel to the house. Good quality equipment, all you could possibly need for a most enjoyable holiday. Everything was lovely and clean, the garden and outside space were safe for the three children, ages 11, 9 and 20months. Good walks and close enough to Cheddar to go to the pub, great food. We would recommend the house to anyone who wants a fabulous base to explore the lovely towns and seaside resorts in this part of Somerset.

    Great welcome from Paul, extending to waiting for us and then coming to meet us in his car when we got lost after enduring very long queues on the M5. Lovely, spacious cottage and gardens with beautiful decor and comfortable beds. Lots of useful information in the cottage regarding walking, and the cottage is close to the reservoir, perfect for a relaxing evening stroll. We enjoyed sitting in the garden watching the sheep in the field next door and days out to Wells, Bath and Frome and would definitely return to Barrowswood as a good base for the surrounding area. We found Barrowswood to be well equipped, comfortable and homely with lots of unexpected extras.

    Great base for a family long weekend. Like a proper home from home going back after a day out. Owner and local rep couldn't have been more helpful and friendly.

    We had a brilliant stay at Barrowswood. There were eight of us staying & the was plenty of room for us all. The kitchen area is where we spent most of our time as its a very large & sociable space. Very clean, homely & has everything you need. We would definitely stay again.

    This is a fantastic house, evidenced by this being our our second visit and there was ample room for our party of two families of four. The house is well kept with excellent facilities and includes so many extras not normally supplied in most other holiday cottages. The property is in a superb location for exploring the area, we will certainly return and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone wanting a home away from home.

    A great location and well-equipped house. Comfortable, plenty of space inside and out and helpful welcome information. Bit awkward to get to through the current building site but hopefully this will soon be sorted.
