The owner Emily came to see us after arriving. She made us feel really welcome and told us where everything was, she even advised us on some good walks for us and our dog. There was some lovely welcoming gestures ie cake and dog treats. The barn was lovely and well furnished. The garden was excellent for our dog as enclosed and a really good size.

Its quiet, secure garden for the dogs (Skye Terriers). Comfort especially the bed was great as usual.

Little slice of heaven. If you want to sit in the garden listening to the birds and nothing else, this is the place to be. Absolutely wonderful to relax away from the usual chaotic lifestyle many of os have.

Highly recommended especially with having a cottage next door. Ideal for two families. Perfect for dogs with the large garden. Incredibly peaceful location too

Loved the large walled garden and homely touches such as the bird table buy the patio doors. The place felt 'home from home' and the bed was comfy. Nice to be able to bring the dogs with us too.

Orchard barn was a perfect get-away with the dogs, a lovely warm welcome with a beautiful Christmas tree and some Christmas cup cakes, milk in fridge and a clean well presented property. Walks from the door step and beautiful Quantocks close by, we had a lovely break and would highly recommend this cottage.

Quiet, but within reach for a short break. Distance to shops is good as is Monkton Elm garden centre for an excellent breakfast.

Emily came to see us at the cottage just to check that everything was ok - the cottage met all our expectations and was perfect for us and our two dogs, and we would definitely like to return! Just perfect - wonderful walks directly from the cottage and the cottage garden was brilliant, we never had to worry about our girls escaping because it was really safe and secure! Thank you. Real peace of mind.

I loved it-my first ever holiday on my own.The family were extremely charming and I hope to go again. It was so peaceful and my chihuahuas loved the country walks. It was perfect.

I think I have covered it all on the previous page. I would give 5 stars for the garden and 2 for the cottage so I have gone with 3 overall but if you publish the stars you should highlight the downsides (shower room, lack of kitchen cupboard space, no laundry room, a bit cramped) as well as the upsides (lovely garden, nice main bedroom).

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.
