“Highly Recmmended & Exceeded Expectations”
Reviewed 10 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

What a great fine. I would highly recommend this accommodation from booking at the outset right the way through to leaving. The whole process exceeded my expectations and I completely echo the previous reviews.

The kitchen is well equipped for our group of 14 and although there were so many people there are many places to go to remain private so that you are not tripping over each other. The property is easy to find and everything was very clean. The cottage is well maintained and it would appear to be recently refurbished. The web site gave an accurate description of what to expect.

I would recommend the local pub in Hawkeridge (Royal Oak) for great food and atmosphere. This is a 10-15 minute walk away through a bridle way.

There is a large private garden and it really does feel private and like being in the wilderness of the back of beyond. I cannot find anything negative to say about this wonderful place and for a large group of 14-16 is ideal both in terms of size of accommodation, facilities and location. I would have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending this property.

“Lovely relaxed country cottage for big group of friends”
Reviewed 5 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Booked this very well priced country cottage for a weekend away with friends and definitely made the right choice. The owners were very friendly when I called to book and made it a very easy process. We were also able to book catering for one of the evenings that I would definitely recommend.
We had a party of 16 which nearly filled all the beds, but the size of the cottage meant we all had plenty of space to relax, but also felt nice and cosy at the same time.
The kitchen was a good size which made it easy catering for the big group and had everything we needed. In fact all the facilities were great and I can't think of anything more we would have needed and having the wood burning sauna was an added bonus.
Location wise, it was really easy to find and was very easy to get to Bath or even Bristol.
Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxed weekend away with close friends or family and the price makes it true value as well.
