Peaceful, spotlessly clean and family friendly
After a few stressful months we were the first family back in after lock down and I can hand on heart 100% assure all future visitors that the cottage and the wider site were spotlessly clean and maintained to a high standard. The hot tub was deep cleaned, as you would expect, between each booking but it was also cleaned each morning, ensuring it was as clean on our last day as day one. We were here for a week and the weather was fair all week with a couple of glorious days. Watchet is a lovely harbour town, the kids loved both the ice-cream and the crabbing in equal amounts. We had our dog with us and with this and certain restrictions still in place, activities were limited for us. We did use Somerset Adventures to do an Escape the Woods (think Escape Room), it was huge amounts of fun, even though we needed an embarrassing amount of clues from Ben who ran the activity. The games in the cottage were also used lots with Battleships and Rummikub being our favourites. Clearly we were also in the hot tub regularly too! I would highly recommend the White Horse Inn nearby. It is a beautiful pub set alongside the river; friendly, good value and the food was nice too! Overall an excellent holiday with some most lovely memories made, thank you to Lynn, Lloyd and the team!

Best cottage on site. so quiet and private. Suprised there are not more reviews as this place is heaven. Hope to get to come back in the future. I had my 60th birthday here and enjoyed every minute. Thanks for a brilliant time and keep up the excellent work

A first rate cottage allowing for peace and tranquillity. Much appreciated the work of the owner, who welcomed us and kept the excellent spa-bath operating. There was lots of space indoors and outdoors and it was ideal for our Labrador.
Mr Ashley

A beautiful cottage and a very well cared for site, it was very peaceful. We will return. The site manageress was fantastic. It was a real home from home facility.
Mr Fagan

We really enjoyed the peace and quiet. We loved the hot tub. It was quality family time for us away from the hustle and bustle of day to day life. The cottage was the perfect size for the 4 of us and set in a lovely remote area. Will definitely consider staying here again and have already recommended it to friends and family.
