An excellent stay. The layout of the property is very very good. All top class amenities. As mentioned, the hosts were very friendly and helpful, but otherwise not knowing Richard and Emily were there. Their little dog “Olive” helps to complete the enjoyment!!!

This cottage is spacious and very comfortable and in a lovely setting in the Quantock Hills with walks all around around . We had a very happy week here and would highly recommend it for a relaxing break .

Amazing property and well equipped with everything needed to ensure a great experience. Friendly hosts who go out of their way to look after you. Great location with plenty of walks from cottage and well presented grounds Simply the best cottage we have had the pleasure of staying in!

Excellent snug cottage with good facilities. Great place to unwind

lovely charming cottage for a great escape to the country, for walking it is ideal, we would like to come back again !

Great location to visit the lovely surroundings.

We had a most relaxing, peaceful, tranquil and enjoyable break away from the trials and strife of everyday life. Enjoying the walks and scenery in the surrounding area, together with all the amenities of home.

Ideally situated in an AONB, with National Trust properties nearby. Fyne Court is great for dog walking with excellent tea and cakes, and free to enter apart from Car Parking. Hestercombe House and Gardens well worth a visit. Everything in the area seems dog friendly and welcoming

Very comfortable cottage - perfect for two; well equipped; high standard of cleanliness and decor. Ideal location for walking the Quantocks.

A very comfortable cottage for a couple & a dog in a beautiful location. Plenty of walks nearby & a good base from which to explore the Quantocks. The bed & sofa are both extremely comfortable & we really enjoyed being in the cottage as well as being out & about.

Gem of a cottage ,relaxing and peaceful everything in the cottage that we needed, location is excellent. Lovely walk through the paddock and orchard in the evening enjoyed every minute of our holiday thank you classic.

We had a 2 week stay from 8/7/21 - 22/7/21, the cottage was very clean, comfortable and everything was there what we needed. We would not hesitate in recommending this property.

We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage, which exceeded our expectations in terms of the quality of accommodation. Whilst spacious it was also cosy. Beautifully clean and well equipped, from the time we arrived it felt like a real home from home. Emily was a friendly face if we needed help but the cottage did feel quite private. The weather wasn’t great during our stay but the Quantocks are lovely and we also ventured over to Exmoor and the Somerset Levels. As others have said, the narrow lanes are not for nervous drivers but we got used to them.

Lovely cottage, very well equipped. Nice and quiet. Loved having a cwtch with Olive the dog.

Really lovely cottage in an elevated situation, excellent for a walking holiday in the Quantock Hills and North Jurassic coast. Spacious and well equipped, with perfect areas outside for relaxing in the sun or barbecuing. Very rural but not isolated, as the owner’s beautiful farmhouse is next door but the actual farm is some distance away, so no animals close by. Thoroughly recommended.

Headford farm cottage is a real gem, perfectly located to visit the local area which for us was included our new granddaughter! The hosts were very friendly but not intrusive. Thank you for a lovely week and we would definitely recommend...

Lovely restful time in this peaceful location. Would recommend.

Headford Farm Cottage is an absolutely beautiful place to stay and the perfect base for exploring the Quantock Hills. We loved the peace and quiet, waking up to the sound of birdsong, lambs and cows. The cottage is extremely comfortable and spacious for two people - we were very sorry to leave and would love to return one day.

This was yet again another excellent Classic Cottages treat! In a delightful part of the country that is so close to home, but we had never visited before. We will definitely visit again and can’t wait to stay in this gorgeous cottage again. The cottage had everything we needed, plus extras for our dog, including the orchard and paddocks to exercise her in. We all had an extremely needed and enjoyable week. It was not long enough!!

We really appreciate your wonderful review - thanks so much for sharing your experience. We're delighted that you had a fantastic time and hope to welcome you back again soon. Tanya, Customer Support

A lovely place to stay for a few days, deep in the heart of the countryside.

We really enjoyed a peaceful, comfortable and relaxed time at Headford Farm cottage.. We didn’t need to light a fire as the place was really cosy with the underfloor heating, but it added a lovely atmosphere when it was wild and windy outside. Great location in the Quantocks, a truly beautiful part of Somerset for walks with our dog. The kitchen is really well equipped for self catering and we appreciated the biscuits, tea, coffee and milk provided. Thanks!

Thanks for reviewing Headford Farm Cottage - it sounds like you had a wonderful time overall. Sometimes even if you don't really need a fire it's still just lovely to look at and listen to on a cold winters day. We hope to see you again soon. Bryony, Customer Support

Lovely cottage in a gorgeous location with everything you need. Quiet, warm, cozy - perfect! Friendly owners next door. Shame about the weather!

We enjoyed a very quiet, relaxing and peaceful week at Headford Farm Cottage, together with excellent daily walks over the Quantocks.

We enjoyed our stay at the cottage and found it very comfortable, spacious, clean and well equipped. Emily was very friendly and welcoming and saved our bacon the first night as we had forgotten the dog biscuits! The orchard and paddock were very much enjoyed by our dog. Unfortunately the weather was rather wet but we still managed to get out and about. The scenery nearby is beautiful. Hopefully next time we are in the area we will manage some of the lovely walks nearby. The local pubs were both closed but we had a fantastic Sunday lunch at the Babbling Brook which was only a short drive away. We can also recommend Watchet (a lovely little seaside town) and Taunton.

Lovely, comfortable and clean cottage, ideally placed for sightseeing and within such a beautiful setting. Our first holiday with our active 11 month old who's not quite walking independently, but I felt happy to let him cruise around the living room area,(overseeing from the kitchen??). We loved chilling in the orchard which is so picturesque. The back patio area faces the owner's driveway but it is nicely enclosed and sheltered by planters. The family are so friendly and willing to help, their proximity was useful when we needed some assistance. Thoroughly recommend.

Wonderful stay here. Very comfortable. Everything had been thought of. Thank you

An amazing cottage, the owners couldn’t be any nicer. The cottage is absolutely lovely. It feels modern without losing any of the classic characteristics of the traditional English cottage. Peaceful, lovely views I couldn’t fault the cottage or location.

Thanks for reviewing Headford Farm Cottage - the owners certainly go the extra mile to ensure their guests feel at home right away. They've also struck a lovely balance with their decor as you noticed so we hope to be able to welcome you again in the future. Bryony, Customer Support

The cottage is beautiful and fantastically equipped with everything needed for a very relaxing stay.
We took the dogs which was a first for us, plenty of walks to keep them happy. We’re country people so the location suited us perfectly. Totally lived up to our expectations.

We had a very relaxing, restful stay, away from our busy bustling life.

Headford Farm Cottage is a delightful place to have a very peaceful and enjoyable holiday in the glorious surroundings of the Quantock Hills - Highly recommended.

Lovely property. Cosy with woodburner. Spacious. Walks straight from property. Really enjoyed our stay.

We had a fantastic stay at Headford Farm Cottage the family were welcoming kind and friendly. We would definitely stay there again.

Thanks so much for your review of Headford Farm Cottage. It's great to hear that you were made to feel welcome and that you enjoyed your stay. We hope to welcome you back again soon. Alison, Customer Support

Ideal base if you want to do lots of walking. Very dog friendly.

Richard and Emily were excellent hosts, discreet but always on hand. The cottage has excellent facilities, very comfortable, also very quiet and relaxing. You can’t ask for a prettier setting as the cottage is in the heart of the Quantocks.. To be able to use the paddocks is a massive bonus for our dogs. Clothestone Hill, part of an Area of Outstandin Beauty, is perfect for off lead dogs and also part of a walking trail offering excellent view from the Quantocks, is only a 5 min drive away. The unusual beach Klive is about 20 min away. The hop-on-and-off West Somerset Steam Train takes you to all the interesting places along the coast. The beautiful Gasntonbury again is about 40 min drive away as is the Clerks Village for shopping. And Bridgwater has an M & S Food Hall for all your food shopping. So much to do... we’ll be back! Thank you Emily and Richard.

If you want a cottage where you can relax in peaceful surroundings,Headford Farm cottage has got to be the one.

We had a lovely stay at Headford Farm Cottage with our two labradoodle dogs. Luckily for us the weather was great which allowed us to explore the local area well. The cottage itself was great for our needs, enclosed area for the dogs outside the back door but an orchard and meadow which we could us just a few feet away. Despite being next to the owners farmhouse it was lovely and peaceful and we only actually saw them once when we arrived. The cottage was very well equipped, the owners had thought of everything we might need right down to dog bowls, towels and treats. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen had all sorts of useful things to use and there was also all the necessary diswasher tablets, washing up liquid, kitchen foil etc which saved the hassle of packing so much stuff. Fresh milk, tea, coffee and homemade cake were very welcome after a long drive to get there! It's right in the heart of the Quantoks so the lanes are very narrow and winding but it really was a lovely place to stay in the summer time. Would definitely recommend.

Very friendly, welcoming owners. An excellent peaceful retreat for couples

For a very quiet, restful, relaxing and enjoyable holiday Headford Farm Cottage is an excellent choice. With its beautifully maintained country garden, orchard and neatly mown paddock walkways along which to walk your dog whilst takeing in the breathtaking countryside views.

The cottage has been very thoughtfully planned, with a lovely private outside seating area. We were made to feel very welcome and loved the Victoria sandwich cake!

A spacious, clean and comfortable cottage. Ideal for walks around the Quantocks.

We had a wonderful 5 night stay with our dog in a lovely comfortable, well equipped, dog friendly cottage with the added surprise of a beautifully baked victoria sponge to welcome us! A peaceful location and a great position to explore both the Quantocks and the coastline with a nice walk from the cottage to Hawkridge Reservoir. Lots of pubs within an easy drive and many of them dog friendly (apart from the Travellers Rest). We received a warm welcome from our host, Emily, who made us feel very much at home.

What a lovely place to stay if you want pure tranquility. The hosts are lovely and the welcoming sponge was delicious. Great walks from the cottage for dogs and there is plenty to do in this part of North Somerset. I am certain that we shall be back.

Lovely holiday cottage in brilliant location. Very dog friendly and having access the paddock to exercise the dogs was excellent.

Everything you could possibly need was provided in the cottage - even a dog treat and dog towels for the dog.

It was a very enjoyable stay and we would return again without hesitation.

Great cottage. Excellent for dogs and well behaved adults. Wonderful area to explore. 10/10

This cottage was first class in every respect. It was well equiped and clearly the owners had put alot of thought into what equipment to supply. It was ideal for the two of us and our elderly dog, she appeared to really enjoy the three paddocks and trying unsucessfuly to chase the rabbits. Mobile signal was not the best but we found the wifi pretty good and when we turned on WiFi calling we had no problem staying in touch with friends and family. The delicious cake and dog treats left by the owners were a really nice touch. Overall really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend the cottage.

The cottage has a lovely feeling of space and staying here has been very relaxing.

Ideal place to explore the area and very well equipped cottage.

Lovely spacious one bed cottage in the heart of the Quantocks.

A lovely cottage in a great location. Ideal for the two of us and two labradors. Lots of walks nearby and further afield.

As our 5th. or 6th. stay, I think that speaks for itself.

Superb cottage well equipped friendly welcome well located with a nice cake and dog treats for a welcome. The owners thought of everything. We will come back.

This cottage was better than we had expected. It offered spacious accommodation, it was very clean and well presented. The only thing missing was a pen to write in the visitors book, which I was sad about as we really enjoyed our stay there and the owner knows or knows someone who can made a delicious Victoria Sandwich Cake. Even the dog was left some treats. Unfortunately some of the roads in the area were closed at the time we were there and the SAT Nav would take you everywhere, but we always managed to find our way back. The roads in the area are very narrow and the hedges very high so when you are not sure where you are there are no landmarks to look for and heaven help you if you meet another vehicle coming in the opposite direction. But all in all a beautiful area, a wonderful cottage and a very pleasant holiday. Please pass on my thanks to the owner of the property.

A very peaceful location. Our dog loved the paddock and meadow walks. The cottage is airy, light and spacious and equipment you could possibly want is provided.

This is one of the best (if not the best) holiday places we've stayed in. Owners were lovely and very helpful, area beautiful.

Cottage met all expectations, owners were very welcoming. The excellent sponge cake & dog treats on arrival made for homely & warm welcome??

A very quiet peaceful country retreat enabling us to recharge and revitalise body and soul away from the worries and demands of our busy life

Superbly situated cottage for exploring the Quantocks and surrounding areas but only 10 minutes from Bridgwater or Taunton.

Couldn't fault this cottage - welcome cake and doggie biscuits and a very pleasant setting. Will go again.

The cottage was really well equipped. There was even a cake waiting for us on arrival; delicious. Owners were lovely, it was a lovely comfortable base, even dog treats, bowl etc

We had an absolutely amazing stay. Great value for money. We got more than we expected. The owner had done us a cake on arrival and doggy treats. They were very welcoming. Overall 10 out of 10.

We had a lovely post-Christmas stay at Headford Farm cottage. It is a beautiful cottage and is fabulously equipped with everything you might need! Wonderful mince pies on arrival. Will definitely be returning!

We stayed at Headford Fatm Cottage for a last minute weekend break. The cottage is finished to a very high standard and the furnishings and wood burner were divine on a cold and windy November night. We were made to feel very welcome by Emily and wanted for nothing. The home made Victoria Sponge and doggy treats were a lovely touch. Thank you very much.

Very comfortable, contemporary little barn. We had a delicious sponge cake on our arrival! The setting is a lovely and peaceful retreat. A pub is within walking distance along a quiet country lane. Will definitely return!

This cottage is exceptionally cosy and welcoming with an extremely well equipped kitchen. A real pleasure to come home to after a long days walk. The cake that was waiting for us was an unexpected treat and the other little touches like milk in the fridge and a generous supply of coffee and teabags was really lovely.

Almost new cottage ,very well equipped. Plenty of dog walks nearby.

We stayed here for our honeymoon, was the ideal location for relax and enjoy the local area

An excellent sized detached property in a good rural loaction.

Great place to stay, beautiful area to visit. If you have dogs this is a great place to holiday. Fab holiday!

We loved our stay in Headford Farm cottage. The cottage was beautiful and very comfortable- we loved the log burner and the swishy sofas after a walk. The owners had thought of everything we might need, and even brought us a brand new high chair for the baby. We loved our stay and would love to come back!

A wonderful property with everything you could possibly want for a restful stay. The owners were incredibly welcoming and helpful and the locations was perfect for enjoying the beautiful Quantocks countryside.

Really lovely converted barn in a great location with lovely outside space. Really spacious with a double height sitting room and lovely mezzanine bedroom. Beautifully furnished and well equipped kitchen.

We needed a relaxing chill week after a hectic year.............. and at Headford we found it. Dont know whether our dogs or us enjoyed it more.

A perfect holiday cottage for a couple and a dog, everything has been thought out so well and provided. We loved the cottage, the area, the views, the walks and the owners.

A lovely cottage, clean, comfortable, beautifully appointed and welcoming.

Efficient and pleasant service. Probably the best cottage I've ever stayed in, every last detail had been thought of, down to the dog towels! The owners were friendly and there if you needed them without being intrusive. I can't fault the cottage or service provided.

The Owners were very helpful and friendly and anything extra that we might need to please let them know, however, the property had everything that you would need. Our two dogs even had welcome treats as did we. This holiday was perfect for us and our two dogs and we hope to return soon. The interior of the cottage is very stylish and comfortable with everything catered for.

A very dog friendly cottage with fantastic walks all around. It was great to stay somewhere with our dog that was of a high standard and catered for all our needs.

This cottage delivered exactly what it said. It is perfect for a couple with a dog - beautifully appointed, furnished and equipped and the owners could not have been more friendly and accommodating. A lot of attention to detail here - we would heartily recommend it.

A beautiful place to stay. Emily made us very welcome especially with the home made cake!

lovely place to stay , with lovely walks all around and beautiful accommodation.

The owners were lovely as were their children (very quiet and respectful). They were very accommodating and we felt more than welcome with the freshly baked cake and hot buns mid-week. The property was very clean, well equipped and nicely laid out with fresh crisp linen. The position and access was good for newbies to the area to explore and discover. Good parking right outside the property and a lovely sunny courtyard at the rear providing table and chairs. The free logs for the wood burner was a bonus. We had a lovely restful break and hope to return.

Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
