Stayed with my fiancé, her Mum and aunt. It was the first time we had used air b+b so were a liitle unsure what we had booked! Fiona the owner was so helpful, even messaging us directions the week before. When we arrived we were met with Lemon Drizzle cake, a selection of cereals and even wine (Aunt in law was thrilled). The cottage is delightful, well decorated and extremely comfortable. We had access to the indoor swimming pool which was a lovely start to each day. This place is perfect if you want a central base to explore Dorset and Somerset or if you just want to hideaway for a couple of days!!
I don't normally post reviews on Trip Advisor, but know there aren't any already here and thought the Cottage really deserved one.
The Cottage itself is beautiful - great standard of furnishings and decorated beautifully. There is a real attention to detail and lovely welcome pack to greet you (including home-made cake, marmalade and gin, as well as fresh eggs and wine to name but a few). There were fresh flowers too and even a copy of the T S Elliot poem about the village - the owners have taken real care with everything. The pool is only meters away - and is a great size and really clean. It is also in a beautiful building with wooden beams - nice to look at if you're doing back-stroke!
The location is good - less than a minute down a country road but away from any noise. Still close to the town though so very accessible. I had day trips to Clarks Shopping Village in Street and also to Exeter, and they were easy drives.
The owners are lovely and welcoming - thank you so much for a great few days. I'll be back!
