We had a fantastic time staying in Shephard's Retreat. The owners were very friendly, welcoming and approachable. The property was first class, very comfortable and in a great quiet location. We did not want to leave. It is perfect for visiting Somerset and the surrounding counties. There were plenty of very good pub restaurants with the nearest just half a mile away and only a ten minute walk. A brilliant week and we look forward to the next one.
Mr Conder

The accommodation was brilliant. The location wad quiet and rural with a local pub which was exactly what we wanted. I have nothing bad to say about the accommodation. it had beautiful decor and a welcoming host. For my first ever cottage stay, I was really impressed. Beautiful location with a modern and up to date apartment to return to in the evenings. WiFi was good enough to watch Netflix in the evenings after long days of walking around Somerset.
