About Andrea Love

My husband Vic and I live with our family in the farmhouse adjacent to Leat Cottage. We are usually here whilst the cottage is being rented and will always have a local contact for you if for some reason we need to be away. We keep pygmy goats and a small flock of sheep, the goats live in the fields next to the cottage. We like to be here to meet our guests in person and show you in to the cottage and will always do our best to help out with information etc so you can have an enjoyable stay.

Andrea Love purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Andrea Love chose Radstock

We built Leat Cottage as a holiday let and have been running it since it was finished in 2008. Our location has the benefit of being within half an hour (depending on traffic) of many of the best tourist attractions in the area, Bath, Frome, Longleat, Stourhead, Wells, Cheddar Gorge and Glastonbury. Leat Cottage is the only holiday cottage on site. It is a peaceful beautiful place, ideal for watching the wildlife and retreating from the hustle and bustle of the real world. You can enjoy the rural scenery whilst staying in a contemporary, light, well heated environment. It is on the edge of a village so there is a shop and pub within walking distance.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for another lovely Christmas at Leat Cottage. Once again proved to be a very magical setting especially when Santa came past the drive! We have been very comfortable and warm. Everything we needed including and idyllic setting

Thanks again

Fabulous cottage in a gorgeous location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spacious cottage with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. We stayed here for a short visit to longleat to see the lights. Perfect location for longleat just 20mins down the road. We were a party of 4 adults and 3 kids. Lovely to have travel cot and highchair on site and anything else we needed. Little games room was a great addition - should imagine it would be even better in the warmer weather! Loved the goats! Would certainly recommend.

5star property ideal base fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

Lovely setting, peaceful and relaxing. A cottage away from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives. Perfect retreat. Ideally situated for all Somerset tourist attractions. Friendly goats and chickens who loved to pop and say hello to our teenage boys who also loved the rope swing. Property offered everything needed for a perfect escape... Welcome pack ideal and the cottage was very modern and contemporary and would definitely recommend to all.

A wonderful place to stay in Somerset

  • 5 of 5

Our week in Somerset (early July 2017), was just perfect...even the weather was great!

The cottage is beautifully presented with three great-sized bedrooms and a perfect kitchen-diner downstairs for the whole family to eat and chill-out in.

My two children loved the owner's animals (sheep and goats) - my youngest watched them play for hours through the large windows, calling it 'GOAT-TV'.

The outside space, including the games room was well-used and wonderful for some 'old fashioned' playing in the garden.

The cottage is on the edge of Coleford village and local shops, etc and local pub is 2 minutes walk away.

Some of the lanes connecting the village to the outside world are quite narrow, so be sure to add on a few minutes to any estimated travel time when sightseeing in the area. During the week we visited Bristol, Bath, the air museum, Weston-super-Mare, the Cheddar Gorge and Longleat - all within 45 minutes drive.

Thank you for a great week. We all really enjoyed the cottage and the wonderful location.

Beautiful, lovely family friendly holiday home for all ages

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely long weekend at Leat Cottage, highly recommend. The cottage is in a lovely quiet place a short drive to Bath. Would advise having a car to get you around.

The cottage is perfect, very clean and has all mod cons. It is part of a farm so although it has separate driveway etc you have fields either side with goats that come right up to your window, my 2 year old son loved running in the fields with them. Andrea is very friendly and welcoming, would 100% stay again.
