    Whilst I can see that this is an idyllic location for some, the write up for this cottage did not mention that it was located next to a working farm's cow sheds so we were unable to proceed with our holiday on arrival. The smell, flies and flying hay dust were overwhelming and as a member of our party suffers from COPD and asthma, this was totally unsuitable and we left within the hour. For others I can see this is a great place to stay.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your feedback on your booking to The Old Cowshed. You are right in pointing out that the property is in an idyllic location and a great place to stay, so I was surprised that you only stayed for an hour before you decided to leave. I was unaware at the time that this was due to a pre existing medical condition and clearly there was nothing I could do to help. However the property details and photographs are accurate and are regularly reviewed. For guests who have specific needs due to a medical condition, it would be advisable to thoroughly research a property prior to confirmation of a booking and I know that Customer Services would have been able to answer any queries you may have had.

    Lovely accommodation and a pleasant, helpful but unobtrusive host. Great central location for exploring Somerset and Devon, couple of excellent local pubs with quality food. Would definitely recommend.
