Was everthing as advertised. Comfy beds and well furnished including Equipment, Books, Games and usual household bits & bobs. Good location for exploring Somerset. A little background noise from Motorway but didn't keep us awake and we sleep with windows open. Enjoyable stay.

Great little cottage for a small family. Very comfortable and clean with all the facilities you need for your stay. Very quiet little village, don't be put off by the pub next door as it doesn't get noisy (they serve excellent bar meals too). Don't be put off by the location of the motorway either because you cannot hear it. I would recommend this cottage to anyone wishing to stay in the area and it is a great base for exploring Somerset and Devon.
