Lovely property set in a beautiful rural location yet within easy reach of Taunton and all its amenities. The house was well equipped, comfortable and well decorated. The hot tub was an added bonus as was the use of the pool at a nearby family farm. The host, Jenny, and her daughter were very pleasant and extremely helpful.

The house was very homely and well equipped. Hot tub and use of indoor pool was an added bonus. The location was ideal for us close enough to the town and main routes but far enough away to have a tranquil and relaxing environment
