Beautiful property wirh thoughtful interior in a quite location

  • 5 of 5

The owners have obviously spend a lot of thought in providing guest with a 'home from home' with this beautiful very clean cottage. Little tokens like butter and bread and fresh milk being provided just shows the thoughtfulness of Gay and Steve. Thank you both for making our stay so pleasureable and for letting us stay in your beautiful house. We did not want to leave. Will definetely book again if we come into the area again

Perfect, best of both worlds.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is just of the main street in Langport with easy access to takeaways and Tesco, etc. We usually go for cottages that are quite isolated to allow for dog walks but then you have to use the car to get any supplies, food etc. But here at Wren Cottage, we could go for walks and still collect our dinner, etc. Gay and Stephen are very friendly and booking was straightforward. We loved being able to get to the Levels allowing us great walks with our dog, off lead. The cottage is well equipped, clean and comfortable. Gay provided some essentials on arrival, milk, bread, etc. and the flowers on the table were a lovely touch. Clarks Village is nearby if you want to do some serious shopping. I have added it to my revisit list and would recommend it others. Thank you Gay and Stephen, we will be back.
