The cottage was cosy and comfortable with everything we needed, including the use of the very large garden. It is surrounded by many places to visit with a friendly host living in the main house. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday.
Mr Willott

Frodos was quiet, tranquil and not too far from amenities.The owner was very friendly.
Ms Burgess

A very relaxing holiday, we enjoyed the peace and quiet, the host was lovely.
Mr Miller

It is a comfortable cottage in a peaceful location and was lighter and felt more spacious than I had expected from the photos.
Miss Smith

The cottage was very clean and tidy, the hosts were friendly, but did not interfere. Being Easter, they had even left us a card and chocolate Easter Bunny! The village of Henstridge is just off the beaten track, but within easy reach of several historic and interesting market towns, plus as much beautiful countryside as you could wish for!
