This lovely, three-storey detached holiday home, two miles from Bridgwater in Somerset, with four bedrooms accommodating up to ten people.

Jer & Mer's Place is a wonderful, detached holiday home, with views of Durleigh Reservoir, near Bridgwater in Somerset. The property is set over three floors, with countryside views from each bedroom. The bedrooms consist of two double bedrooms on the first floor, including one king-size room with an en-suite shower room and panoramic views of the reservoir, as well as two single bedrooms on the second floor.

There is also a family bathroom, a kitchen with a dining area and a sitting room with two double sofa beds, a woodburner and a door leading onto the terrace. The terrace is decked at the front of the house, with views of the reservoir and countryside, a hot tub, garden furniture and a barbecue. There is also ample off road parking and an enclosed lawned garden at the back of the house.

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


We stayed here the last week of October. Met by Jer, a lovely host, we were amazed at the attention to detail in providing a warm welcome. We were provided with the ingredients for a full English breakfast from the local bakery and butcher. We also had a lovely chocolate sponge cake and even treats for the doggies. The property has everything you need to just move in, from cooking equipment, washing machine and dryer to the hot tub and fantastic views of the fields and the reservoir from every room. Amazing dog walks, great space for the 6 of us and 3 doggies to spend time together and also have space for time to ourselves. Great location for visiting the treats that Somerset has to offer, even in the rain. Thank you Jer & Mer for a lovely stay. Xx

Absolutely perfect!
We have just got home from a fantastic stay at 'JER & MER'S PLACE'. On arrival we were greeted by Jer who was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. A welcome basket was supplied with bacon, eggs, bread, honey, jam and a wonderful chocolate cake which was unexpected - a real treat! The kitchen had tea, coffee and sugar supplied. The property easily facilitated 6 adults,1 toddler and 1 baby - with room to spare. The bedrooms were light and comfortable with great storage. There are two outdoor areas which are secure to allow your dog(s) to explore without worrying. The hot tub was great, especially given the recent weather! The views of Durleigh Resevoir were wonderful. We will definitely visit again!

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

Great place
We arrived on Friday afternoon and was met by the lovely Jer and he showed us around the property, there was a lovely welcome pack of breads, cheese, eggs, sausages, bacon etc all locally sourced, that was a great touch. The hut tub was great and our entire party had great fun in there. The garden is big and we managed to play bollyball and badminton, there was plenty of games in the boiler room for the kids also. Nice big TV and log burner and 2 comfortable sofa beds in the lounge. Kitchen has everything and more, steamers, slow cookers, blenders etc. dishwasher, washing machine and drier easy to use. 1st floor bedrooms. the ensuite room is spacious but the 2nd double room is small, its a small double bed that only just fits, but if only using it to sleep its fine. 2nd floor bedrooms, these get HOT, the velux windows only open about 2 inches and as its in the loft it gets very hot and stuffy up there, Jer left a small fan/condensor that did cool one of the rooms, its a shame the windows dont open further as its a lovely view across the meadows and resivoir. there were no negatives really and we are planning to book again at this or the adjacent property next year.

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.
