Enjoyed our week with a family of 4 using the cottage. Hot tub an excellent addition and the cottage is well equipped for our needs. Good walks close by and the village/surrounding countryside is very quite/peaceful. Owners very friendly and helpful. Lots of areas to drive to, including Cheddar, Wells, Weston, Exmoor coast and Wookie Hole.

The kitchen is well laid out & we enjoyed cooking & eating there.
