Beautiful cottage, immaculately clean, fabulous crazy shower! everything you need to make a comfortable stay but a freezer of some sort is really needed . As was advertised on site with a freezer. Although I was informed of this, it was a bit late in the day to be told as was due to go within a few weeks . It would have been something I would have considered not booking the property because of this . A freezer even a small compartment in a fridge I would say is a must on a self catering holiday . Mattress in the main bedroom is extremely hard ! I admit I’m not a good sleeper away from home but even my husband who can sleep any where found it uncomfortable . Had to take the quilt off the other bed and sleep on that which did solve the problem . Overall lovely place in beautiful grounds . Lovely and peaceful exactly what we wanted

Thanks so much for taking the time to review Old Sandpitts Cottage. We're sorry that you were disappointed with the mattress in the main bedroom - we do find that mattress comfort can be a very individual preference and it can be difficult to find something that ticks the boxes for everyone, but we'll certainly pass on your feedback to the owner for their consideration as well as your suggestion of providing a freezer. We're so pleased that you enjoyed you stay overall and hope to welcome you back soon. Tressa, Customer Support

Beautiful cottage, very quiet location. The all singing all dancing shower was amazing, kitchen well equipped and lig fore was very cosy. Couldn’t fault anything! The pub within walking distance served excellent food too. Definitely planning another stay here next year

Old Sandpitts Cottage is a beautiful cottage set in beautiful grounds. Fully equipped even down to salt & pepper! Everything thought of and all to hand. The furniture and bed is comfortable and the whole place spotless. A wonderful base to explore Somerset, Devon & Dorset! We had the most wonderful break after a long spell without a holiday, just what we needed.
