"We liked everything about our holiday. The booking of the cottage was straight forward. We arrived in Washford with no problems but could not find the cottage. We rang the owner who came out and guided us there. The cottage and its location was spot on; one of the best we've stayed in. The wildlife was a joy to watch especially the squirrels and a pheasant (we called him Dave) that waited outside for some bread. Minehead, Taunton and a host of other attractions were all within easy driving distance. We are already thinking of booking again for next year. "

"The hot tub was the attraction and it did not disappoint. My sister and I loved it. The huge wall of windows was a special pleasure, as we could watch the wildlife with impunity. Special favourites were the pheasants, incredibly nosy birds, peering in at us. The tub was serviced every day without fail, which we have not found with other hot tub properties, so we were very pleased. Have wonderful photos. It really is an experience, and one we intend to repeat when there is a week available. Area abounds with interest and we look forward to our next visit."

"Very private, quiet and cosy little house. Perfect to de-stress. The hot tub was the reason for booking and it was wonderful and well maintained. Sitting in the tub whilst the weather raged around us was an incredible experience. We particularly enjoyed the huge expanse of glass in the French windows which enabled us to watch the birds, including very noisy pheasants peering in the window."
