“Spacious and welcoming in beautiful location”
Reviewed 10 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

tThis is our second stay at Rivendell and we had another great stay. The cottage is spacious and well equipped and a lovely garden with barbecue. It is a short drive from Glastonbury so easy to explore the rest of Somerset.

“Well below our expectations”
Reviewed 6 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Although the cottage was peaceful, ample space for our two families (4 adults, 2 children), the bathroom has much to be desired. With only 1 slow shower, & an effective downstairs working toilet - this Easter weekend break was something we would have found better spent if the cottage had been cleaner (gleaming cobwebs in the kitchen did not entice the palate much when our gustatory reflexes are high!) Still we managed to enjoy the next door farm (the kids fed the lambs), & the little hideout of mosaic handicrafts near the Somerset butterfly house was a treat. We spent most of the time for a day at Bath - the trepidation of returning in the dark to Rivendell was more than my/our liking. Although our wives were more forgiving, the non-working sink tap (which had to be sorted out on the first day night) followed with the poor flush upstairs kept the husbands pining for a rapid escape! More embarrassment for me as I had booked this on all's behalf.
My son (7 years) would like to add his comments as well.....

The toilet was noisy upstairs and the moment I put the tap on it made a horrible sound.that took away the sleep!

“Very good and peaceful cottage”
Reviewed 1 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Good and quite cottage, very spacious however both bathrooms need further improvement. Shower is too slow and upstairs toilet gets blocked most of the time. An additional bathroom will be a bonus!!. Nice and big kitchen, comfortable bedrooms and all linens provided. Children enjoyed their stay. Lovely neighbours!!

We've spent a great 5 nights here. The children enjoyed the rural location and enjoyed playing in the garden, using the canoe and testing their survival skills with their outdoor cooking.

“Great Location”
Reviewed 31 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed here for 4 nights at the end of July and loved it! The house is perfectly located for Bristol airport and more importantly Glastonbury (3 miles)

The househas a lived in feel and has all you would need to enjoy the stay. Very comfy beds and all electrical goods. Plenty of cutlery and a lovely garden which the river Sheppey runs right along the bottom of the graden, (which has lovely fish in)

We would for sure stay here again.

Thanks
