Lovely little cottage that takes you back in time. Just the 2 of us and our 2 dogs and we loved it. Everything you could want was there including broadband that was just great. Very clean and well equipped. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 was the lack of a shower but otherwise it would have had 5 stars without hesitation.It was so quirky and a welcome retreat after a busy day discovering new places. Well placed for National Trust properties and the Haynes Car Museum is a must. Would return anytime.

Great little cottage, close to pub (good food, poor choice of beer) and well located for a good variety of days out. Owners were flexible and accommodating, the booking process was easy and the cottage had everything we needed.

A Fantastic stay. A lovely cottage in a very nice and friendly village. Pub about 2 minutes walk away, and about 30 minutes walk to the nearest shop. Highly recommended

We found Babcary a great central point for visiting lots of places in Somerset, Dorset and eastern Devonshire. The cottage was very clean and well equipped. Kitchen and bath have been upgraded although a shower attachment in the bath would be nice. The village is very picturesque and quiet.
