Everything we Needed
We chose ?The Granary? for its location; it is close to Shepton Mallet and shops, but well away from the noise of a main road. We thoroughly enjoyed our week there. The cottage is very comfortable and there was everything there that we needed. We chose to eat in most nights and found that the kitchen was very well equipped and well planned. The owners left a basic pack for us of milk, sugar and coffee, which was a plus, and an enormous yummy cake. The building is obviously well insulated, as we found that the cottage was far too warm with the heating on and turned it off after our first night there. We also liked watching the farm animals and discovering about them, and the work involved in looking after them. I found the chickens particularly amusing. The cottage is very well situated for discovering the tourist sites of Somerset and Devon. We would certainly return again.

Such a warm welcome. Beautiful, well cared for cottage in spotless condition. We immediately felt at home. Very sad to leave, but already planning to return. Could not find fault with anything. Attention to detail was present in each room of the cottage. Thank you for giving us such a relaxing, happy holiday.

Very friendly owner, she couldn't do enough for us. The area to sit outside was wonderful. Everything was perfect!
