Shared pool area was hogged by other guests in the other bigger rental so we did not get much use of the pool. They smoked and gave me trouble with my breathing. They were very noisy and took all the pool area all of the time on a hot a sunny week. They ignored the pool rules and jumped in the pool making use of the pool undesirable. In fact the pool was not an asset but a disadvantage to this property! Our patio area was unusable for the same reason as it was next to the pool. We felt the conservatory was also not private as it was overlooked by the pool area. We drew the blinds for some privacy.
Otherwise, a good standard of accomodation and a very good area to holiday in.
We left 3 days early for home and some peace and quiet!
I would recommend this place for families but not couples.
Welcoming hosts at a charming and well equipped venue.
Easy access to some wonderful countryside and interesting jaunts. What a pleasure to hear the toot of the Steam Train and see the smoke in the distance from the West Somerset Railway...rolled back the years!

We booked the retreat at the end of February to celebrate my 70TH birthday. Our two lifelong friends came with us. The weather was superb but nothing could have surpassed the comfort and amenities in the cottage.
Sara and Marco were so friendly and helpful and they provided lots of information on places which would interest us. The steam train and Dunster castle, grounds and the medieval village are not to be missed. We also thoroughly enjoyed the walk from Washford to watched, along the old mineral line.
I can't think of anything to dislike about this holiday. It was more than 5*. Thank you so much.
