In a great spot for exploring Somerset, Jer & Mer's Place is the perfect base for families and friends.


Just brilliant
We arrived Friday and was warmly greeted by Jer, showed us around the house and facilities...a lovely stocked welcome hamper of goodies for breakfast...the house is homely and comfortable...with plenty of items you wouldn't normally find in a rental as in slow cooker, food processor and steamer..the stay was lovely and my only criticism would be for 10 the dining area was quite cosy, that being said most ppl when on holiday dine out, so for most parties I can imagine this would be suffice...all in all lovely house with spectacular views, and we will certainly be back

Loved it.
We were met at the property by a very friendly jet, who showed us where everything was and how everything worked, he had also supplied a very generous hamper of goodies, including 2 fresh loaves of bread, milk, butter, cheese, cho plate cake, bacon and sausages and eggs, very thoughtful and appreciated. The property is in a great spot overlooking the reservoir and the garden is spacious. We had trouble with the wifi which wouldn't work, so as we had teenagers with us who nearly went into meltdown over this issue, we contacted her whi got someone out to fix it and very generously repaid the money we had spent on buying a bundle for said mutinous teenagers!! We were a family of Aunt, niece 3 great nieces, and then were joined by my daughter her partner, my 10th month old grandaughter, my future son in laws mother and another niece, so at one time their were 9 of us plus the baby and we all fitted perfectly ok although those on the sofa beds did say they weren't that comfortable but it wasn't a huge issue,plenty of crockery and kitchen stuff etc, we were glad of the dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. The only negatives I could say is that maybe the curtains downstairs could be replaced or at least have more hooks as most of them are hanging off which made it look a bit untidy and that hopefully the canopy over the hot tub which was fantastic and used often, will be put back on as it did make the garden patio area look a bit scruffy along with a very wobbly wooden table and rusting chairs, other than that no criticism at all, we loved our week here.

Spot on
My husband and I have both recently retired and it is a "big" birthday coming up for me. So we decided to stay here and here for the weekend with seven family members which included Dolly the mutt. The welcome pack was indeed that most welcome and fully utilised. We met Jer at the property he showed us around and highlighted how things work and the instructions for utilities. We made good use of the hot tub and the log fire. Would thoroughly recommend this place as allowed us to have a good old family get together and a well deserved chill out

Not quite up to par
I will start with the positives - Beautiful location especially if you enjoy water fowl. Was left local produce to eat which was very nice. Lots of bacon and sausages, although member our group were veggies, we got more to eat. It states it sleeps 10 but in reality, it comfortably sleeps 3. 2 in the double bed in the master which was very comfy, if a little shabby with scuffed walls. The other bedroom had a small double which would sleep two very skinny people comfortably but was a bit too small for sharing normal sized people. My other adult friends had camp beds in the loft and they were not comfortable. Luckily our friend which booked it bought her own inflatable bed, so she was able to get good sleep, the other 2 didn't. It was adequate for us but appeared felt as if the family had just walked out and we were taking it over for the weekend.

Our family of 6 had an absolute blast last week. The children (7, 10, 12, 16) enjoyed the garden and the top field especially for ball games and water fights. The hot tub was also a big favourite, especially in the evenings when the weather cooled down a little. The house was clean, well equipped and spacious enough for all of us. Plenty of indoor but also outdoor towels and bath robes. We cherished the peaceful and quiet surroundings, the beautiful views of the Durleigh reservoir and we loved our lazy mornings with a coffee and a book on the sun loungers. Jeremy was very friendly and welcoming, he showed us around and even left a lovely food hamper full of local products for us to enjoy. Thoroughly recommend a stay here, it was very relaxing. The area has plenty to offer, we visited Wookey Hole, took few walks in Quantock Hills, looked for fossils on Kilve beach, took a trip to Weston-Super-Mare and many more. We enjoyed the 15 minutes walk to the Enmore Inn in the evenings, their food is delicious and all home cooked and the landlords were very friendly, making us feel very welcome. Another great place to eat was Maliwan's - the Thai restaurant in Bridgwater and the Plough Inn on route to Kilve beach.
