ANOTHER comfortable break away at Wren Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Kind of lost count now with how many visits we've had to Gay and Steve's 'Wren Cottage' in Langport.

As usual, there was the same lovely warm welcome, wine, bread, butter and flowers. Everywhere clean, tidy and freshly painted to a very high standard.

Although the cottage is 'pet friendly', there is no evidence of any of the doggy guests at all. 😊

As I've said before, very central to all Langport's local and abundant amenities. Lots of great places to visit on the 'Levels' and further afield.

We'll be booking again for our pre-autumn trip south.

Beautiful Cottage.. Perfect Getaway !

  • 5 of 5

Just arrived home from our stay at Wren Cottage, already we are tempted to book in again. We arrived late in the evening but had a warm friendly welcome from Gay, gave us a tour of the cottage and the easy access to the private gate to the River Parrett and huge fields that my dog adored running free in. We really cannot rate this cottage highly enough!! Fresh bread, Butter, Wine and Flowers was a lovely welcome gift and made us feel right at home. We ventured out to the local Cider Orchards, Somerton, Cheddar Gorge, Clarks Shopping Village & many more places! Thank you so much for a wonderful stay! Victoria, Andy and Holly Dog.

Beautiful Cottage in a lovely village

  • 5 of 5

Well what can I say from start to finish this holiday was perfect. We were met by Gay and given a tour of the cottage which I have to say is really beautifully decorated and well maintined and has all the little extra touches e.g. washing machine, coffee maker, condiments in the cupboards and what I was most overwhelmed by was the attention to detail, lovely yellow roses on the table, a bottle of red wine, butter, bread and milk provided as well as tea, coffee and sugar in the cupboard. The location of the cottage is perfect for lovely walks if you have dogs (we took 2) there is a lovely cafe called the Wharf kitchen which allows you to dine with your dogs which was perfect for us. There is also an indian, chinese and fish shop in the village along with a Tesco 5 minutes stroll away. Langport is an ideal base to explore, we travelled to Burnham, Brean, Glastonbury, Street, Somerton and then headed into Weston on our way home. I would highly recommend this cottage and would definately stay again in the near future. I would like to say a big thank-you to Gay and her husband for making us feel so welcome. The Lewis Family

A wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely long weekend at Wren Cottage. The cottage is a true home away from home, comfortable with everything you could need plus additional touches such as milk in the fridge and teabags in the cupboard; my daughter did ask if we could move in on a permeant basis! Gay, the owner was a wonderful host, showing us around the cottage when we arrived so we knew where everything was and how the heating worked. The cottage is well placed for lovely walks along the river and the carvery at the Langport Arms is a must! We would happily stay at Wren Cottage again.
