    The cottage its self was very nice but the damp musty smell was really bad. We all had sore throats because of how bad it was. The entire house would have benefited from a good clean. Even the bed sheets had dog or human hairs in it. It's a shame because with a bit of effort the cottage would have been perfect but to have to clean the place the minute you turn up is not what you want to be doing on a break. Also if you state the first basket of logs is free then giving three logs doesn't really qualify as a basket. Despite all of the above it is a beautiful cottage.

    Perfect little cottage. Picturesque and renovated appropriately. Very well equipped. Great location for the surrounding area and close enough to the town of Chard. The road was very busy and there was some road noise but you did get used to it after a couple of days. The same with the steep stairs. Loved the orchard. The only thing missing for me was a proper patio area. There is a wooden picnic table in the orchard but because of the slope it was very difficult to sit at.

    We would score this cottage lower than 1 for cleanliness if we could. It was so dirty that we only stayed the one night (out of a 7 night booking) and went to a hotel instead. Don't want to list all our complaints but they included: bath not cleaned after previous occupants use (foam and hair remained), dead insects in light fittings, double padlock instead of normal lock on front door, an item of underwear left for use as a tea-towel, and on the ground floor everything felt dirty and sticky. Did not walk barefoot in the cottage and didn't use any of their cutlery/drinking glasses. Couldn't wait to get out of there. Agents refunded us for 6 nights we did not stay

    Characterful cottage but we were very cold. We would return but only in the summer as it was unbearably cold in the cottage.
