    Thank you for keeping the cottage so nicely. The kitchen is well equipped .... which we appreciated because we like cooking. The cottage has a nice character to it with an enjoyable fire place for the evening relax. Thank you for a nice stay.

    The property was tastefully decorated, comfortable and clean. Both of the double bedrooms are large and spacious. We found the beds to be very comfortable. The bathroom has been tastefully refurbished - the shower and sink both have great water pressure. The kitchen has very good equipment. The fridge/freezer is large. The dishwasher and washing machine both worked well. However, you will need to bring all of your consumables with you. Most cottages we've been to (through this website) provided things like dishwasher tablets, but we had to buy our own. Not a problem, but it's worth coming with a big bag of everything that you will need. The welcome pack comprised of some instant coffee, tea and sugar (but no milk) plus three biscuits for our dog. As this is a restored old property, be aware that there are quite a few low ceilings, low door frames - and sloping walls in one of the bedrooms. If you're an average height man, you will almost certainly bash your head a couple of times. If you're tall, you may be in trouble. I suspect that if you're over 6 feet 2 or 6 feet 4, you may not actually be able to stand up entirely straigtht in the kitchen? The property adjoins the owners' property and is actually connected through two partitions and one interior door. From the lounge where we stayed, we could often hear the owners' dogs barking and even occasionally the owner speaking to their Amazon Alexa. We also heard loud drilling and thumping (hammering?) on several days. If you do not like vocal dogs, then this may not be the property for you. The owners have three dogs including one quite young puppy. At least two of the dogs are quite excitable. Overall, we had a lovely time. The property is spacious, comfortable and clean. The only things that may put some people off are the thin partitions and the occasional noise from the owners and dogs through the partitions.

    This cottage is by far one of the nicest places we've ever stayed. It is beautifully furnished and equipped with lovely quality bath towels and bedding, a lovely kitchen with everything you could need. The fridge/freezer looked new. Everywhere is so clean. It was more spacious than we had anticipated from the photos. We had a warm welcome from the owners, they made us feel at home and were very kind. Our dogs were also welcomed, the cottage really is more than dog friendly. We had a peaceful and relaxing stay and would definitely recommend this cottage. Fabulous!

    This is the second time we have stayed here and I love it. So comfortable and practical with the dogs. It has everything you need and Mary and Mark are so friendly. We were there over Christmas and they had put up a tree and decorated the house. So lovely. Thank you. I am sure I will go back at some stage this year.

    A lovely dog friendly cottage with safe, enclosed and very pretty garden with two seating areas, one for morning sun and the other evening sun. The cottage has everything we needed and is very beautifully decorated and equipped. Our host Mrs Palmer was very welcoming and helpful, accommodating our grandson at the beginning and end of the week’s stay making our number on two nights 5 plus dog. Local pubs were very good. The Farmers Arms and Hatch Inn our favourites. Very close to Taunton and Kings College School where our grandson was playing in a cricket festival. An easy drive through the lanes. We would love to return to enjoy the local area and walks as we did not have much time to explore as we spent the days at cricket! Thank you for a wonderful stay.

    A really lovely cottage. Very well equipped with quality furnishing, appliances and equipment It is clear that the owners have invested a lot of time, effort and thought into every aspect of the cottage. The garden was the icing on the cake! We all had a great break there and would not hesitate to recommend, especially to dog owners.
