“A wonderful find for a family Christmas!”
Reviewed 2 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We have just returned en masse from a family Christmas spent at Raisnbury and could not be have been happier with the house or great hospitality. Terry gave us a very warm welcome, decorated the house beautifully and even provided home baked treats to help us settle in.

I can’t fault the place- it felt cosy and spacious at the same time - lovely comfy beds and all the kitchen equipment we needed for Christmas dinner with all the trimmings...all except for the hostess trolley which my mother in law bought with us!

Thanks for everything Terry and Angela.

“Perfect place for family time”
Reviewed 25 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We loved our trip to Somerset and the setting of these cottages couldn't be better. Beautiful country walks, delicious pub lunches in nearby villages and evenings in playing games provided the perfect time and space to reconnect with family. Each bedroom is tastfully decorated with lovely soft furnishings and homely touches. The beds are so comfy and we all slept like logs and slept through our morning alarms! Would highly recommend to anyone needing a break and time with their loved ones.

Thank you so much for your kind review. We are delighted you appreciated the countryside, pubs and particularly the beds. We made it a key priority to provide really comfortable beds. It makes a huge difference to our guests and they invariably express their appreciation, often saying they are better than their beds at home. We hope to see you all again soon.

“Get away break to Somerset”

We have just spent a couple of days at Rainsbury House, and stayed in The Barn, which exceeded all our expectations. The barn is spacious, well equipped, cosy and a very comfortable place to stay. We were looking for a base from where we could explore the Exmoor National Park and surrounding areas. What a beautiful part of the country and would highly recommend Rainsbury House. Thank you so much Terry and Angie for your local insight and spot on tips for where to eat and pubs to visit.

“Eight happy people”
Reviewed 20 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We received a warm welcome from Terry and Angela with freshly made carrot cake, local eggs and chutney on the kitchen table. The Barn is spacious (our three families fit in easily) stylish and comfortable (great beds), and very well equipped (a garlic press, a pizza cutter, dishwasher and washing machine tabs). The garden is delightful and safe for small children (2 x 2 year olds and a 5 year old).

The local area provided train rides, castles, beaches and playgrounds at varying distances. And then there is the lake, which one of us ran around and one 68 year old biked (and walked), but is better taken in smaller bites!

We loved the dark skies at night, the empty lanes, the endlessly beautiful scenery and the 25% hills (the serious cyclist). A week was not long enough!

Thanks for such a glowing review. We try very hard to make every stay with us memorable. We are always looking to improve our offering and ask every guest for feedback and suggestions, hence the pizza cutter, garlic press, coffee machine etc. Most of all, we are delighted you had a lovely time with us at Rainsbury House and look forward to welcoming you again. We were in awe of your cycling marathons. The empty roads on Exmoor, even in the height of the summer, make this area a dream for keen cyclists.
