Amazing cottage and great location

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous cottage and location. Owners are helpful, friendly, allow your privacy and really look after you. The swimming pool is amazing. A big hit with my two kids!

Lots and lots of places to explore and discover, beaches local (30-40 min drive) are stunning. I think Somerset and Dorset are my new favourite counties.

It's so good we have booked the same two weeks in Aug next year.

Can't wait to return as we ran out of time to fit in everything we wanted too.

Lots of places to eat locally as well with access via Yeovil to supermarkets and takeaways that deliver

Perfect holiday stay.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time staying in this cosy, comfy cottage. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners. The arrival pack of luxury cereals, home made marmalade and lemon cake and not forgetting wine and freshly laid eggs made a lovely unexpected but very welcome treat. There was much to see and do in the surrounding area, however, given the lovely swimming pool available we were also very happy to stay in!

We would recommend this property.

Beautiful cottage, fantastic warm welcome!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with my wife and two kids (8 & 12) for a week and loved the location for exploring the many attractions that are available locally. The cottage is amazing - outstanding attention to detail, very homely and nice to see high quality throughout for a change (furniture, bedding, appliances and even cutlery!), quite often costs are cut back on the little things that spoil the whole experience - not this time!. Swimming pool is a great feature and only a skip away from the front door. What impressed us most was the very warm and personal welcome we received - little things like fresh flowers and home made products make all the difference. We will definitely look to stay and again and would recommend highly.

From the Owner

Longlands is in a perfect setting, hidden away down a country lane on the edge of the beautiful village of East Coker of T.S. Elliot fame, but only 2 miles away from Yeovil with all the usual conveniences of a town. The local Somerset countryside is an absolute picture with lots of walking and cycling on offer, for the novice and enthusiast.
