Having JUST got back from an excellent long weekend at Somerset Spa and reading some of the reviews here, I felt I should write mine up sharpish! We were a group of 16, staying for my sister's 30th birthday.
From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel very welcome and the owner couldn't have been
more friendly or helpful.
On Friday night, we made full use of the bar, though this is unfortunately only open on Fridays, it was like having our very own local within stumbling distance!
Saturday was clay pigeon shooting and various treatments, manicures, massages etc. and on the whole this was well organised. We even made good use of the hottub and sauna.
Sunday was a lovely walk in the fantastic weather to an excellent local for lunch.
The accommodation was really lovely and I think a lot of the criticisms have been really unfair. As owner Liz rightly says, the venue is not advertised as child-friendly, it's your choice if you wish to take that risk. I personally think it's a great place for kids to roam about and Tess, the owners border collie is just really happy to have new friends to play with.
Anyway, enough rambling, but overall a thoroughly enjoyable, relaxing and very fun weekend. Thanks to Liz and her family.
