    A nice cottage in a quiet location. Various places of interest locally. Little light pollution makes for excellent views of the night skies. We were so busy we did not have chance to explore the local village.

    Taffys Cottage was a lovely place, great location and a wonderful little holiday home. a great place to stay if your visiting Bath or Wells and not far for a trip to the sea side of Weston-super-mare.

    We used the cottage simply as a base from which to visit family in Bristol, but found the cottage convenient for visiting Frome and other local towns. Stunning scenery and wonderful Autumn colours.

    We had a great holiday and the weather was perfect. We sat out in the garden in the early evening and it was very pleasant and quiet.

    Good location for this cottage and had everything that you would need for a base ,but no under sink items (like washing up liquid etc) and no salt and pepper.For the past few years of renting a cottage things like this have been there when we arrived.Cleanliness was ok but things like the cushions in the lounge were badly stained and curtain hooks missing from the lounge curtains.Nice and peaceful surroundings and lovely garden. Good village just down the road,with shops and pubs.Had a good holiday but cottage just needs fine tuning.

    Taffy's cottage is ideally located for our holiday covering the Bath and Bristol area. I personally would have preferred a better shower arrangement in the bathroom, but that is just my personal preference. my granddaughter had a marvelous time in the bath. For a family of 2 adults and 2 children, Taffy's cottage is perfect. For 4 adults and 1 toddler, as our party was, I would have liked 2 proper showers. Everything we needed was provided for in the cottage. I recommend Taffy's cottage. P.S. the welcome pack is absolutely delicious!

    The cleanliness was OK apart too many cobwebs, and the ensuite shower enclosure was very mouldy. The cottage is in a picturesque and quiet location, and well furnished and comfortable.
