A peaceful and secluded getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The property was compact with everything necessary for a lovely holiday. It was relaxing, and an excellent place from which to explore the local area. Our hosts were very friendly and available for any queries, but gave us space to enjoy the property as if it were our own for the week. This was definitely one of the nicest properties we've stayed in.

Perfect. Idyllic. Fantastic place to stay. Great hosts. Abundance of wildlife and tranquil setting.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic cottage with everything you need for a holiday. Peter and Bev have thought of everything, even leaving peanuts and dog biscuits for the badgers that visit every night (generally around 8.30. You can almost set your watch by them!). Roe deer, very friendly pheasant and lots more wildlife on the doorstep. A perfect place for those looking for a quieter place to stay. You can walk around their land and stop off at the lake to feed the fish or just sit and relax. The pub in the village does great food but it is advisable to book. The cottage is perfectly situated to visit Devon, Dorset and Somerset with many National Trust properties within easy reach and plenty of gardens to visit too. We were asked if there was anything that Peter could do to improve our stay. There is nothing. As far as we're concerned, it is perfect. Axminster is a few miles away if you need any groceries. There is a Co-op and a Tesco. If you like antique shopping it is worth a visit to Crewkerne as there are quite a few shops there. If you're the sort of person that enjoys getting away from the hustle and bustle of today's busy way of life then this cottage is for you. Highly recommended.

A Lovely Cottage in a Very nice spot, With all the wildlife on your doorstep

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here in the cosy little cottage, shame the weather was not better but we had the wood burner to keep us warm, the wildlife around the cottage was superb with badgers, deer, foxes, woodpeckers, jays, tree creepers, nuthatch, warblers, buzzard just to name a few, and a cheeky little stoat that nearly ran over my wellie as i was stood outside the cottage
