The location of Railwayman's Cottage was fairly remote,but with easy access to other parts of Somerset. Ideally situated in an area that was both beautiful and peaceful,being one of seven others in this little hamlet you did not feel isolated. Only 150 metres from access to the canal and other lovely footpaths was ideal for walks with our dog. We would recommend this cottage to anyone needing a little rest and relaxation.
Mr Barnard

We love this cottage. The bedroom is so light and airy, whilst the living room is so warm and cosy; a great combination. The dog loves it too, the upstairs windows are just his height for watching the world go by. The canal on the doorstep is another plus.
Ms Prays-jones

Railwaymans's Cottage was very nice and very well equipped with everything you need. The log burner was very cosy and warm in the evening whilst watching TV. The location was very nice with the canal just around the corner where there was some wildlife to be seen. I would definitely go back again and recommend it to friends. Thanks to Sykes Cottages and the owner for a lovely holiday.
Mrs Noke

I liked how it was close to amenities so we could go further afield in the day. I also loved how cosy it felt sitting there of an evening with the log fire going while watching TV. The canal walk was very nice. Beautiful spot and beautiful surroundings. Have already recommended Sykes and will be recommending The Railwayman's cottage to everyone too.
Miss Howells

Beautiful secluded spot, excellent for exploring Somerset.
