About the Owner

Hi, we are Tim & Paula. We currently live on the outskirts of Guildford in Surrey and both work in the Leisure industry, coaching tennis and in Paula's case Zumba too!!

Although now living in Surrey, Paula grew up and spent most of her life in Somerset and has family in and around the villages local to our cottage and still has a very close attachment to the area, we're very frequent visitors to the area, much more so since we've spent time renovating the cottage which has now become our 'home from home'

In our spare time we love to travel and see as many different countries as we can and we appreciate finding tranquil and friendly places to kick back, relax and unwind and we hope we have created this environment at Peggy's Place.

We found the property to be everything as stated in the description and more. It was very clean and well equipped, very comfortable and the garden was a delight in the sunshine. Would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in this part of Somerset.

We booked this cottage within a month of staying , the owners couldn't have been more helpful, this was an excellent cottage in a lovely village right next door to a pub that sold good home cooked food , The cottage itself had 2 bathrooms , 2 bedrooms both of which were spotlessly clean, the kitchen was fairly spacious with adequate facilities and a dining area.

The cottage itself is within easy reach of many good attractions by car

(Wookey Hole, Cheddar Gorge, Weston Super Mare etc) also nearby is a large supermarket (by car) as well as a local convenience store within walking distance, overall a superb stay in a lovely setting , wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. 10/10

Absolutely beautiful cottage, fantastically equipped although chose not to use the washing machine!! Dishwasher used though. The owners have thought of everything to ensure a comfortable stay.

Only thing is that I wish they could squeeze a sofa bed in the lounge, so more of our family could stay......

Would recommend this cottage to all, cant find fault at all

From the Owner

The cottage originally belonged to Paula's late 'auntie Peggy', hence our affectionate name for Leigh Cottage. The cottage was left to Paula and her brothers and in 2012 following Peggy's passing we decided to buy out the cottage. It has since been a labour of love renovating it and we hope that those who choose to stay with us will love it as much as we do. The cottage is in the pretty village of Brent Knoll, just 5 minutes off the M5 and easily accessible from all areas. It's just 2 doors down from the popular Red Cow pub, which serves excellent food and drinks. it also has great walks right from the front door.
