Our first visit to Somerset, & we weren’t disappointed. Such a beautiful cottage set at the bottom of the Quantock Hills. Loved the fact you could do numerous walks from your doorstep. The cottage was lovely & clean, many thanks to Jules the housekeeper. Very cosy, comfortable beds, just loved everything about it. Also the local pub The Plough, which was 5 minutes walk, friendly staff good food & a nice selection of Beers/ales. We visited Watchet, Cheddar Gorge & Dunster Castle, as well as a visit to Kilve Beach & Chantry Tea garden near the beach. The carrot cake was lovely. The only complaint was our week went too quickly.

Beautiful cottage, comfortable and clean. Fantastic range of walks from the house. Beautiful peaceful garden. Near to the coast, Somerset levels, Wells and Glastonbury.
Mr Heap June 2023
A lovely cottage with all facilities and situated in a pleasing area.
Mrs Clifton May 2023
A charming cottage which exceeded expectations. Beautifully appointed and very well-equipped. Such a peaceful atmosphere- it was a delight to sit in the little garden and listen to the brook and the birdsong. This part of the Quantocks must be one of the most beautiful in the UK.
Ms Tetlow July 2022
Gorgeous place, beautifully designed and fitted out. Would happily stay there again.

Mrs Singleton October 2017
A quiet escape to the country in a beautifully styled thatched roof cottage. We stayed with our 4 year old and enjoyed exploring Dunster Castle and their haloween trail, throwing, rolling and piling the pinky purple stones at Porlock Weir, a trip on the steam train and a drive to Glastonbury and Wells.

Mr Redfern September 2014
Absolutely stunning cottage which is furnished and maintained to the highest possible standards. The location is perfect for exploring Exmoor and the Quantocks.
Mr Grant August 2014
An idyllic thatched cottage in very quiet location - the babbling brook is the loudest noise you can hear as you sit reading in the beautiful cottage garden. Many lovely walks of different lengths and difficulty on the doorstep, and within easy reach of Coleridge's cottage and Dunster Castle. A very relaxing and reinvigorating break with the bonus of some delicious cream teas.
Mrs Hewitt June 2014
Tranquil, comfy and friendly cottage which catered well for us and our 3 year old girl.
Miss Berry May 2014
Beautiful cottage which has been very tastefully furnished in an idillic setting. Neighbours lovely people who always stopped to chat and offer advice and assistance.
Ms Rayner April 2014
The perfect cottage for a peaceful break but with plenty of great days out right on the door step. The village is quiet but friendly (with a great hotel for food and drinks up the road so no car needed!) and we soon met the neighbours. The cottage is very comfortable and beautifully furnished and the gardens just lure you out to sit in the sunshine and relax. Recommend and would book again.
Mrs Vesey-Wells October 2013
Lovely cottage with everything you need in a rural and scenic location. Have used classic cottages for 3 years now and wouldn't go with anyone else. Highly recommened.
Mr Kavanagh August 2013
A charming property, beautifully presented and in a lovely location.
Mrs Stevenson August 2013
Lovely, well equipped cottage (very comfy beds!) in a beautiful location. Fantastic walks and strolls right from the doorstep with a pub at the end of the lane. Kids loved paddling in the brook running alongside the cottage. Great neighbours who gave us advice about places to visit. Highly recommended!
Mr Weavers July 2013
Very comfortable and picturesque property. Peaceful and idyllic. Great location for walks. Good food available in local pubs.
