    The cottage was lovely very clean and welcoming. Only thing you need to be careful of is the toilet on the bend of the spiral staircase. To me the door should open the other way to avoid a potential hazard on the stairs. Also a small amount of logs and firelighters to at least have a fire on the first night would be a nice gesture as nothing is supplied.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments, we are pleased you found the cottage very clean and welcoming. Unfortunately, due to the slanted ceiling, the toilet door off the spiral staircase cannot be changed to open the other way round. Your comment regarding materials to make a fire on the first night, is a good idea and we now provide a fireside welcome pack containing firelighters, kindling, matches and a few logs.

    Beautiful house! Full of character, though my husband left half an inch taller, due to the multiple bumps on his head against the low doors :-) Heated kitchen and bathroom floors. Very warm house (in February). Beautiful views over an unspoiled countryside from the bedrooms windows. The children loved the house too! Well equipped, with AGA cooker, very clean. Thank you.

    Our second visit to the cottage over new year and it was another super week. The garden is really secure for the dogs with walks on the doorstep. Our only comment about the cottage is the sofa bed in the lounge really isn’t big enough for 2 people. I would definitely recommend this cottage and I expect we will book it again in the future 👍

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments, we are pleased you had another super week at Oddwell and you would definitely recommend the cottage. As the sofa bed is rather small, we have decided to reduce the cottage occupancy from Sleeps 7 to Sleeps 6 to ensure guests are comfortable. We apologise if this caused you any inconvenience.

    We have spent a Christmas here before, but this time was even more magical, we took our son, daughter in law, and 4yr old granddaughter, and we all had the most amazing time

    Lovely cosy cottage, Ralph Brompton shop very small and limited you need cash as they don’t take card. Need the car to travel anywhere. But overall a lovely chilled out cosy cottage.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner. Thank you for your comments, we are very pleased you enjoyed the cottage. The village shop is very traditional, just stocking the essentials, and is run by volunteers otherwise it would have closed down years ago. For information, there are many shops in Wiveliscombe, 4 miles away, including a Co-op which opens from 7am to 10pm 7 days a week.

    Good holiday, enjoyed the Aga, it kept everywhere nice & cosy. Unfortunately for us we found the location a bit too remote as we had to travel long distances to get to our walks each day. Really liked the enclosed garden which was perfect for our 3 dogs.
