    Lovely cottage very well equipped in a lovely quiet location, ideal for visiting Longleat and Bath. If you love walking there are several in the area which are well described by the owners who live next door and nothing is too much trouble for them . Was made very welcome when we arrived and supplied with a lovely homemade cream tea.

    We used the cottage as a base to visit Longleat Safari park which it is very close to (recommend the two day ticket as there so much to see and do at Longleat). The layout of the cottage suited our group (two couples and one child) very well. The cottage was clean and comfortable and had everything that we needed. We only stayed for the weekend but would have liked to stay for longer and explore some of the beautiful countryside nearby.

    Excellent cottage, we enjoyed our stay thoroughly. Super location and set up well for small children etc. Lovely scones were a welcome well received. A couple of suggestions to make stay even better next time....cleaner bathroom, softer towels and a new hairdryer.

    Location of the cottage is stunning. Sunsets were beautiful. Cheaper carry outs were too far away so evening meals in local pubs were very expensive.

    A quiet location in a part of the world we have not visited for many years. We would consider another visit.

    We did not like Garden Cottage and did not think it lived up to the photos online - upon arrival the cottage was musty smelling and the sheets damp. The quality and facilities were not as expected either. It was outdated. The owner was not present upon arrival (which we had been contacted about, so not an issue per se), so we were not able to follow up with him directly, but we were so dissatisfied we left to find alternative accommodation.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We were surprised and disappointed with this review which is quite out of character with all the others on our very popular cottage. It is a shame these guests did not stay more than a couple of hours because we would have been able to explain that the faint smell came from a small vase of wild flowers which when removed returned the cottage to its normal sweet smelling state. For the record it is not in the least bit damp, we put dry freshly laundered linen on all beds and we are usually around to greet guests on arrival to sort out any problems. The cottage is nearly 300 years old and traditionally furnished but with all the equipment you would expect in a modern home, and it is our policy to immediately provide any extra equipment our guests need.
