Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Perfect coastal cottage
We visited Coastguard cottage in Wells with our three grandchildren and two dogs. Really good location just a five minute stroll to the harbour. We spent many a hour in the evenings at the harbour crabbing with the kids. The cottage has all the amenities you could ask for with plenty of cutlery and crockery and good quality. Lovely enclosed garden which our dogs loved exploring. Very comfy beds, parking for 2 cars. Great communication with the hosts too. Recommend taking one of the boat trips to see the seals. We saw loads. Great experience.

Fantastic relaxed family cottage!
We stayed at Coast Guard cottage for a week in early January. We have stayed in many rental properties in this area and this is definitely one of the best. The location is superb and has ample parking, we always aim not to drive once we arrive at our holiday destination and this is very easy to achieve at this property. The cottage has everything a family needs for a home from home experience, it is extremely well equipped, comfortable and warm. The beds are super and we all slept very well. We took advantage of the darts and table tennis in the garage and our small dog enjoyed exploring the lovely garden. Jane and Paul were very helpful, booking was easy and it is obvious that they have put a lot of time, effort and thought into making this an ideal holiday home. Thank you!

Cosy coastal retreat!
I stayed at Coastguard cottage this weekend for two nights but how rested and relaxed I felt on Monday morning meant it felt like a week long break! The cottage is very thoughtfully equipped with everything we needed and beautifully decorated throughout. We had the perfect Saturday evening - returning to the cottage after a long stroll along the beach and devouring the best fish & chips around (French’s of course!) We then put on the crackling fire and sat on the comfy sofas playing games all evening! We did not want to leave at the end of the weekend and we will definitely be returning to this seaside sanctuary as soon as possible!

Delightful cottage for a perfect weekend away with friends
Well equipped cottage with thoughtful details, comfy beds and a cosy living room with roaring fire - perfect for my friends and I to come back to after an autumnal walk along the beach! 10/10 highly recommend!

Perfect Cottage in a great location
We have just had a lovely week at Coastguard Cottage. The cottage was beautifully decorated, well equipped and plenty of space for 4 adults, 2 children and a dog. Paul and Jane really have thought of everything you may need, down to the dog shampoo in the shed 😊 The ample parking is also a great plus. We hope we can stay again soon!

Lovely cottage - exceptionally well equipped
Myself and three friends (and two dogs) have just spent a week in Coastguard Cottage. We could not fault it. It was warm, comfortable, well-positioned and incredibly well equipped. We were able to cook meals there without the usual searching around for basic equipment and utensils. A lovely goody box was left for us with local produce and full information of things to do and where to eat, which we made good use of. All communication beforehand was friendly and useful. Would wholeheartedly recommend it.

Great week in Wells
This is the first time we have stayed in Coastguard Cottage and will definitely return again!! A great location and a definite bonus to have off road parking. The cottage had fantastic facilities and enough space for a family of five to enjoy time together and to have some peace and quiet as well!! Good equipment in the kitchen which made it easy to cater when we did not eat out! Would thoroughly recommend

Perfect family cottage in a quiet area of Wells but near enough to enjoy all the local amenities.
We have stayed in Wells many times as it is a family favourite, but this cottage is the best we have stayed in by far. Lovely and homely with plenty of lovely home touches. The rooms were all of a good size which was perfect for our teenage children and the games in the garage were a complete hit! The cottage is in a quiet area of Wells with parking which was great, but it's not too far away from the lovely local amenities so you can explore on foot. The back garden is a lovely sun trap where we spent many evenings eating and drinking and we loved everything about it. Highly recommended for a family.

Great place, close to all amenities
We have visited Wells Next The Sea a number of time previously but this cottage offered so much. Off street parking, a rarity in Wells, close to everything so no need to drive if you don't want to. We took bikes which we kept in the garage so very secure. The garage is also a games room where the family indulged in a number of darts and table tennis competitions! The cottage was very well equipped with all the essentials people sometimes forget and even a few treats like local cider and shortbreads. Wifi was reliable, which pleased our three boys from 10 yrs to 16 yrs, beds were really comfy and the two bathrooms were a god send. If we return to Wells, this cottage is where we will stay!
