Superb cottage ideally situated. This is the best cottage we have stayed in, it has everything you could want and everything has been thought of. The welcome pack was perfect with fresh bread, fresh eggs from the owners as well as home-made cake! Delicious! It is very well furnished and it was refreshing to have a bed as comfy as our own at home!  The location of the cottage is also perfect to explore Cheddar and the surrounding Mendip Hills. The village of Wedmore itself is beautiful with an array of shops and three great pubs all in walking distance. If you’re looking for a perfect relaxing getaway in the countryside this is the cottage for you. We will most definitely be returning and highly recommend this property. The owners were prompt and helpful throughout the booking and stay. April 2016

Thank you for a wonderful, cosy and comfy stay. Not only is the cottage beautiful but so is Wedmore and it’s surroundings. Our recommendations for other visitors: a meal at The Swan, a pint (or three) at The New Inn. The local shop is fab for those real ales, ciders and local produce. The Cheddar Gorge walk was demanding but well worth the trouble for that view. Feb 2015

Fiona has created the perfect little country bolthole retreat. Decorated and designed to a high standard and spotlessly clean; you don’t want for anything and it is peaceful and private. Excellent position to explore everything the beautiful Mendips has to offer, walking distance to the village pubs and shops. And the welcome basket of essentials, bread, butter, milk, eggs plus lemon cake was really appreciated. Thank you! February 2020
