Able to sleep five people, this two bedroom property is situated on the border between Somerset and Dorset in the little village of Henstridge.

Set on the border between Somerset and Dorset in the outskirts of Henstridge, this single storey cottage has been skilfully converted to offer comfortable, well-equipped accommodation. With two bedrooms, this stylish property is able to sleep five people and offers a wet room shower, a separate kitchen and views from the rear across the beautiful, surrounding countryside. The cottage is also well positioned for all the amenities of the village, and the activities on offer in Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire.


Our experience with this house was negative for the following reasons: Not as clean as it looks at first sight. Cobwebs everywhere, inside and outside, especially hanging form the windows. it was clean only what you see at first sight. One of the rooms very small, not even room for a wardrobe. The 2nd room quite big but with a persistent humidity/wooden smell. Ventilation constantly needed to be able to stay in. Kitchen poorly equipped with cutlery ( only 4 each) No hoover available, we could not hoover the carpet for two weeks. No cleaningservice offered. Very uncomfortable bathroom as far as the shower was concerned. Filthy common washing machine/tumble dry room. Photos on the web do not correspond to reality. Owners nice providing that you do not ask them anything. When you do the get quite annoyed. In a nutshell: very disappointing experience at Primerose Cottage, we chosen it after reading all the positive comments , but our experience has been totally negative.

Primrose Cottage is ideally situated to explore Somerset/Dorset. The Cottage was very clean and had enough room for all 5 of us. Would definitely stay again if we were to stay in that area.
Mrs Stimson

The cottage was fab, it was located centrally so we had loads to see and do. The owners were friendly and very helpful.
Mr Berryman

A very spacious, comfortable and well equipped property which has been maintained to a high standard. It was close to pleasant rural villages with excellent pubs and facilities. The owners were friendly and helpful.
Mr Marjoribanks

The cottage felt homely. The bed linen was lovely, carpet was new and clean, furniture was comfortable. There was everything and more you could have wanted in the kitchen. The view from the living room was over a field was very pleasant and we saw some beautiful sunsets. All in all, I didn't want to leave and could happily have moved in permanently!
