Offering delightful holiday accommodation for families, couples or friends, these holiday property (refs 29841, 29842 & W44121) make an ideal base from which to explore Somerset and North Devon. Barrowswood, a semi-detached holiday cottage (ref 29842), enjoys commanding views over Cheddar Gorge in the distance. Its large garden adjoins a field with occasional visiting sheep and is the perfect spot in which to relax and unwind. Strawberry Lodge (ref 29841) stands detached at the far end of the grounds of Barrowswood, enjoying woodland surroundings with magnificent views over the field and across to Cheddar Gorge. Blackberry Lodge (ref W44121) is a single-storey, detached lodge, ideal for a romantic retreat for couples. All three properties may be booked together should you have a larger party.
Cheddar village offers plenty of interesting shops and cafes as well as other attractions. Cheddar Gorge, Britain’s largest limestone ravine gouged through the Mendips, is a magnet for climbers, walkers and visitors to the floodlit caves and Cheddar Reservoir is a great place to take a picnic, look out for wildlife and join in activities such as sailing and angling. Axbridge is a charming market town with a medieval square and half-timbered buildings, whilst Wookey Hole attracts many visitors to the showcaves. Wells is England’s smallest city set around a cathedral; Wedmore is a lively town with many individual shops and eateries, Glastonbury is famous for its music festival, spiritual culture and King Arthur legends, and the coastal resorts and magnificent beaches at Weston-super-Mare, Burnham-on-Sea, Berrow and Brean are all within a short drive, as are the cities of Bath and Bristol.

    Barrowswood is a very lovely cottage, beautifully clean and nicely presented with a lovely warm welcome form Rachel. The only reason I have scored an 8 for comfort/equipment is the fact that the sofas are rather past their best for sitting on - very saggy seats, but mainly the pillows are awful and the some of the duvets are also showing signs of needing replacing. If these things (particularly the bedding, which would be easy) were addressed it would make the cottage perfect.

    Barrowswood was perfect for a very special family gathering of seven of us, although the four large bedrooms would be perfect for eight. The cottage is well equipped, clean and comfortable with a big garden for the children to play in, or to party outdoors. Excellent location and conveniently situated for local attractions and outings.

    We had a fabulous stay at Barrowswood, it was perfect for our family get together of 6 adults and 2 children. The rooms were spacious and it was lovely having 2 lounge areas and fires. It is in a great location, only a few minutes down to the reservoir and the walk around it to Axbridge was excellent. Cheddar Gorge was a 20 minute walk the other way and has lots of nice pubs and restaurants. Amanda was very helpful and met us on arrival, there was parking for 3 cars and a lovely backyard with secure access to the small orchard that the kids enjoyed. Everything was supplied but there was a shortage of teaspoons and bin bags! Thank you for a lovely stay, we enjoyed it very much.

    This was a lovely house, spacious and in a good location. We were delighted with the size, situation, furnishings etc. However, there were various things amiss, and I felt that they needed to be spelt out, as they had been written in the guest book as far back as 2015, but had not been addressed. BEDROOMS.- no mirror in the main bedroom, other than over the washbasin, therefore nowhere to blow dry your hair, but NO PLUG SOCKETS! So no blowdrying could be done. No hairdryer anyway. In the main bedroom , there was a plug socket at bottom of the wardrobe,inside, next to the far skirting board, and a socket behind a bedside locker. None could be used for a hairdryer. All the bedrooms were short on plug sockets, so 3 of us had to buy extension leads! (we had mobile phones to charge, a laptop to use, etc) The lighting was inadequate. In the "Cottages4you" list of requirements, there is supposed to be a light for each person in bed. No waste paper baskets in the bedrooms. The twin room was very poorly furnished; very thin mattresses on the beds, very little space in the room, the large drawer from the base of the wardrobe was missing. Only one thin pillow each bed. The room is obviously set up just for children but in a house advertised as having 4 double bedrooms, it should be realised that 2 adults may be using that room. Previous guests have noted that the standard of that room should be brought up to the standard of the others. A larger room should have been used for a twin bedded room. BATHROOMS There was no shelf or rack in the shower cubicle for shampoo/soap etc, we had to put them on the shower floor. There was no shelf over the washbasin for toothbrush/paste etc There were no toilet roll holders, and the toilet seat in family bathroom was very loose, and swiveled around, this is probably due to the user having to swivel round on the seat,to retrieve the toilet roll from the flush cylinder, causing the fittings to loosen. SITTING ROOMS. No coffee tables in either room, so nowhere to put a glass of wine or a cup of coffee. No table lamps in one room, and the strength of the light from the ceiling lights was so poor we could not read in that room after dusk. The other sitting room had two table lights, each at the furthest place possible from the settees, so they were useless for reading, hence we bought extension leads, and read in bed!! Yes, the cottage receives the customer satisfaction awards, (as mine has done, this year) but I would dread to think that my customers were short of the above basic things to ensure a comfortable holiday. When the annual inspection takes place, the agent should be checking for all these things, after all, they are written down as mandatory requirements. Having said all that, the house was in all other respects, lovely and the 5 of us who were there were very pleased with the kitchen, its dining table and equipment, and the large TV, in addition to the overall ambiance. And yes, we would return, but would know what to bring with us!!

    We were a group of two families and this home was so spacious with two family rooms on opposite wings so the kids could be in one and the adults in the other. The amount of beds was perfect four single beds for the kids and two double beds for the adults also on opposite ends of the home. The yard was huge the only suggestion that would have made this holiday perfect would have been a jacuzzi to enjoy the views while relaxing outdoors. It was so peaceful and the home had everything we needed and more. The beds were comfortable as we all slept well! It’s in the small town of cheddar and we were recommended to eat at The Bath Arms. It was a beautifully renovated pub with fine dining, it was one of the best meals I have had in England! Thank you for sharing your lovely home!
