    A comfortable cottage in a peaceful position in the Somerset countryside. The three double bedrooms are well appointed and are supplied with bedding. The upstairs was very pretty with a nice big bathroom and over bath shower. If you are tall however it may be difficult to shower as the roof incline makes for an awkward angle to stand. The electric shower was typical of electric showers with low output but that's not a fault of the cottage just a fact of life! Downstairs there is a large living area with stairs going up and a rebuilt open fireplace. Unfortunately, the fireplace does not house a fire nor a wood burner as it seems to be a mock fireplace. The downstairs bedroom, however, does have a fireplace with a wood burner but not very practical to use it. I suspect this was once the living room in a previous incarnation. The TV has an inbuilt DVD player and there are a few DVDs and books to read in the lounge and in the bedrooms. The kitchen is the best room in the house; wonderfully cosy and has a lookalike AGA and a gas cooker. Dining table and chairs to sit six. A lovely cottage feel in here. Beware of the stairs! They are steep with narrow treads and my partner who is fit and nimble decided to come down backwards as they are tricky. On the whole it was a very nice visit, the owner is helpful and cheery. I did find the principle of paying £5 per night for heating a bit much as I would have preferred to have it included in the cost. Having to worry about remembering it was something I could have done without. Oner thing I did notice as I'm not a dog owner, the place did smell doggy. There was a boot room out the back and a front porch where dogs could be left but the house downstairs was still doggy. In fact, the owner did say that she gets few people without animals staying there. So if you take a dog perhaps you won't smell it! We had a great time though and didn't want to come home.

    A really comfortable, spacious and well-equipped cottage surrounded by beautiful countryside. The owner is very helpful and friendly. There's so much to do in the area, so it's a great base for local walks and for exploring further afield.

    We loved the cottage it is in a wonderful location and very dog friendly. Lots of places to visit . We like walking and birdwatching, and found that we really needed more than a week to do all we wanted to. If you like birdwatching, Avalon Conservation on the Somerset Levels is not far away, and a little further you have A wonderful bird/wildlife Sanctuary at Steart which is near Burnham on Sea, so this makes a wonderful day out. Visit Burnham, fantastic beach, with a dog friendly area, and then Steart Wildlife Sanctuary. You have lots of historical sites within walking distance of the cottage and Priddey instelf is a very lovely and friendly village the Victoria Inn,within walking distance, is a very comfortable pub doing very nice meals, or a short drive you have The Castle of Content Public House also doing very good meals. Rachel the owner is very friendly and helpful.

    Lovely cottage, very spacious with comfortable beds and generally a home from home. Location is central to lots of tourist attractions but the village is very basic with no shop other than a local farm shop so a car is essential. Village pub serves good food, reasonably priced but its a good walk from the cottage. Drive way to cottage needs improving as it gets very muddy and is on an incline but i'm sure that is on the owners to do list. Rachel made us very welcome and we would stay there again.
