We loved the cottage and had a wonderful time in Somerset. The information folder provided gave us some great tips to make the most of our break. The cottage itself was wonderful; spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable and very homely and cosy. We also found the WiFi extremely useful. We have already recommended it to friends and look forward to re-booking ourselves soon.
Mrs Costa

The Cottage was very clean, tidy and nicely decorated, with a well stocked kitchen and nicely enclosed garden for the dogs. The welcome folder contained plenty of information on the local area and there were plenty of maps to use to help us explore.
Mr Lowe

The cottage is lovely and perfect for a couple or small family. We used the wood burner several times and it heated the whole cottage thoroughly. The garden is secure, which was great for our dog. The location is great for exploring Somerset.
Miss Simpson

I liked the quiet village location, with nearby country walks.
Mr Cameron

We arrived fairly late after a long-ish journey to find a lovely cottage - a welcome pack, which included tea, coffee, milk, biscuits & chocolates, had been left for us and was very welcome indeed. A designated parking space has fairly recently (I believe) been created in the front garden - this is very useful as the terrace of houses, of which Hillside Cottage is a part, got quite busy and it would have been difficult to park on the narrow road otherwise. There is also the facility to charge an electric car if you have one! The cottage is very comfortable and nicely decorated. There's also a washing machine and dishwasher; the fridge is on the small side but it was ok for us. The wood burning stove was lovely - the first basket of logs & kindling being free with a charge for additional logs used which is fair enough. The bedrooms are a nice size and the beds comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped. Mobile reception isn't great - there are a couple of spots in the cottage where you can get a signal but this is mentioned in the cottage guide. The Wi-Fi is very useful. Spaxton is a lovely quiet village and, as it has no street lights, is good if you want to check out the night sky. The village has a community shop and there are plenty of supermarkets in Bridgewater, about 6 miles away. Hillside Cottage is very well placed for exploring Exmoor & the coast and I would definitely recommend it.
