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.

Wonderful Cottage!
A wonderful cottage in a a lovely location! The website pictures made it look lovely and we were not disappointed when we arrived. Very well equipped and a nice welcome from Leigh and Nick (the owners who live next door). The llamas who live on the small farm are a joy and quite often you are given the opportunity to take them for a walk (even in the rain as we did!). Free range eggs from the chickens - wonderful! It's location is idyllic - surrounded by fields but just a 10 minute walk from the small village and less than 30 minutes to the coast. We cannot recommend the cottages at Pole Rue Farm enough and would definitely return. Thank you Leigh & Nick for a great stay.

Best we’ve stayed
We are part of a group of walkers but also opt for the odd week around the country in places such as these. We were in Somerset with our walking group and found this place. This is the best holiday let we’ve stayed in and we’ve stayed in a few ! Clean, well furnished with decent quality furniture and beds... this is not tatty ! Lovely welcome from Leigh , big smile and some little treats including very fresh eggs . It’s up a quiet country lane near th village where there is a well stocked shop. Loads to do inthe. Area just use the supplied material. We are going back alone in March. They are very dog friendly m delightful people and very reasonable price wise. You will need a car though

Serendipity
We took Bluebell Cottage for 6 weeks in January/February with a view to having a look at this part of Somerset before moving in due course from our home in France. Even in winter the location is stunning and the house is comfortable, warm and cosy, with ample wood for the woodburner on the nights it was needed. We were particularly impressed with the care that Nick and Leigh have taken in decorating, furnishing and equipping the cottage and for the way they looked after us. We lacked nothing. It is the perfect holiday cottage, and ideally situated for visitors being close to the M5 and A30/A303. The grandchildren loved the lamas! We will certainly come again.

Absolutely outstanding
Built in traditional style but with all mod cons and very thoughtfully designed and equipped for cosy comfort . 1dble and 1twin. Scrupulously clean and equipped with everything that one could need. Very convenient as per the site and previous reviews so will not bother to repeat except to say that the local pub - the Green Dragon - is definitely worth a visit. Loved the horses and the chickens and the dead quiet at night. The owners - Leigh and Nick - could not have been more friendly and welcoming. A really super stay and we will definitely be back when next in the area. Would definitely recommend.

Excellent
Fantastic cottage in excellent location. The owners Nick and Leigh are 2 of the nicest people you could wish to meet and certainly go out of their way to make your holiday special. Nothing was too much trouble.The cottage was extremely clean and well equipped and had a great garden area as well, ideal for children and pets. The village is 5 minutes walk away and the locals were very friendly. When returning to Somerset this cottage will easily be our first choice. Thanks for helping to make our stay special

Lovely location in countryside with village shop and pub within walking distance. The cottage is well designed, comfortable and uncluttered but equipped with everything we needed for a really enjoyable stay. The owners are welcoming and helpful. I have no hesitation in recommending a stay here.

Beautiful cottage in beautiful setting
This cottage is stunning. Exactly what we hoped for and needed, and more. A wonderful base for our first holiday with our puppy where we could walk as much as we wanted in the gorgeous countryside and drive to beaches and villages in the surrounding area. Peaches absolutely loved the chickens, her new doggy friend Poppy, and Nick and Leigh ("Poppy and Peaches on the beaches"!). We thoroughly enjoyed the much needed rest and break away from the norm. Would recommend Burton Bradstock for the beach and walk, and also if you would like some normal, decent grub at a dog friendly pub, The Green Dragon in the village is worth going to. A very welcoming pub with a nice friendly atmosphere. Thank you to Nick and Leigh for being such wonderful hosts - we loved our first staycation, we miss you all very much and we cannot recommend you highly enough. Very best wishes to you all and hope to see you all again.

Great location and accomodation
This is a fantastic holiday let, it is in the middle of the countryside but at the same time is not too remote at all being within about 15 minutes drive of Chard which has a number of shop/supermarkets and places to eat and drink. The owners are lovely and more than happy to help as much as they can. The cottage is one of two, and is very new and well built with everything you would need for a stay of a week or two. Highly recommended.
