    Delightful cottage tastefully restored to 17th Century style with exposed beams ;dog really enjoyed the large garden and surrounding fields;Underfloor heating and easily lit woodburning stove made the cottage very warm and cosy even when "blowing a gale outside.Rooms very spacious and plenty of equipment in nicely laid out kitchen. Fairly close to good , dog friendly pub whose South African chef included various South African dishes on the menu.The Quantock hills are easily reachable by carWe hope to visit again

    Potters cottage is in a fantastic location, out in the countryside with great views, the garden is really big which the dogs loved, inside the cottage there is a fantastic log fire which we had burning every night, there are some great walks from the cottage itself, I would definitely recommend this to others

    Great location for walking,footpath to West Monkton runs behind the cottage,the dog had the best time ever.Although the garden is not enclosed you are not near the road.The photo's don't do the property justice. Sainsbury's deliver which was handy.Wouldn't hesitate to book again.

    A well equipped, cosy cottage, off the beaten track. Ideal for walkers and dogs. The wooden stairs are steep as each step is 9" high, so tricky for arthritic knees or small children. We came here to be close to Taunton for the cricket.

    Beautiful cottage in a super location. The cottage was cosy, comfortable, welcoming and well equipped. Fell in love with it the minute we saw it, it's so pretty with some lovely old features inside. The garden was great for the dogs with lot's of walks right from the doorstep and some fantastic views. Would definitely stay again, can't recommend it enough :)
