"An absolute gem of a find!"

What can I say? We had a fantastic break in a beautiful part of the country, in the most gorgeous, special cottage with the loveliest hosts!

Angela and Alban are the rare sort of couple you meet in life who just exude a sense of adventure, fun, and love of life. This is captured in their family home that they bravely bought in the 60's as a condemned building, as a young couple with a baby, and lovingly restored it back to life and so much more. Alban is a skilled, creative, carpenter by trade with a mischievous sense of humour. The house and gardens have to be seen to appreciate the workmanship and love that has gone into every detail.

The cottage was so much more than we expected, cosy but spacious, everything carefully thought about and supplied and absolutely feeling like a real home. To top it off, the house is full of carpentry delights, quirkiness and surprises which bring out the childlike wonder in everyone, not to mention the garden which homes even more!

On our first proper evening, our children (8 and 11 years) declared: "it feels more like home than home!" By the second night they were asking us if Angela and Alban might consider selling the cottage to us, and everyday they begrudgingly asked "do we have to go out, can't we stay here today?"

Its located in a great part of the country with lots of things to see and do, and we did, packing it all in including, Bath, Wells, Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury, always coming home to a lovely evening by the fire, the children (yes even the 11 year old boy) could not get enough of being a shop keeper in the victorian post office in the garden.

Within 12 hours of coming home, I found myself googling more things to do in the mendips to warrant another visit! The children were both in the shed trying to make a 'fairy door' out of a log, and my husband was looking at home improvements in a whole new light!

Thank you Angela and Alban for a wonderful break. We would love to come back in a warmer season, just to experience the Greek geraniums and try out your fantastic barbecue area!

MY, my what a fantastic review. That is so overwhelming,you were lovely guests and we would be thrilled to see you again. Children say such brilliant things don't they, I think your son and daughter would enjoy making something in wood with Alban when you come again.
We wish you well in all that you do, if you need any advice on your own home improvements just ask I'm sure Alban would be please to give you some useful advice. Take care and much love to you all. Angela

"Absolutely delightful - a respite from the weather!"

We spent Christmas here as a small family of adults and enjoyed this cottage immensely. Alban and Angela were model hosts and made us feel very welcome, even down to putting up a little Christmas Tre… More

Thank you so much for your wonderful review, you were model guests and you will be most warmly welcomed at Spindle Cottage when you are able to return. Thank you for all the goodies you left us, it felt like presents for a second Christmas. Hope every thing at home is getting back to normal for you. Take care and kind regards,

"Somersets best kept secret"

Although we live in Somerset we stayed at Spindle Cottage for a couple of nights to be near the city of Bath. We just couldn't believe how gorgeous it was. The care that has gone into the accommo… More

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. You will find a warm welcome here anytime, so please do come again. It's always good to refresh your batteries with a little break now and again in your busy life.
So we look forward to seeing you soon.

"Fantastic location to chill out"

Stayed over new year period. Angie and Alban made us extremely welcome. Our grandchildren came with us and loved exploring the little shop, elizabethan house etc in the garden. Everything we could have wanted in Spindle Cottage we were very comfortable and completey relaxed with evenings by the fireside.

It was pleasure to see you again with your lovely family this time. Your grandchildren are great and it was wonderful for us to see them playing and enjoying the little playhouses.
Glad you made the most of the wood burning stove and it was fun being invited in for drinks on New Years day, it was a good start to 2015.
Thank you.
Lots of love,
Angela & Alban

"Magical Cottage for young and old alike"

Cant praise the location, the accommodation or the hosts enough. A week of sheer bliss in the beautiful Cotswolds (even with a few days of rain!) all made possible by basing ourselves n this little sl… More

Well! That is praise indeed. A week of sheer bliss you say, my my, how can I reply to that? I will just say many many thanks, but just a little slip you were in Somerset not the Cotswold's. We forgive you that because your review is so fantastic.
You are correct our three magical playhouses are every child's dream and our grandchildren would agree with you, also, all the many children who have had the good fortune to holiday here as well.
Thank you.

"Spell binding Spindle Cottage, a place of many wonders."

"Spindle Cottage is simply lovely - I would thoroughly recommend it!"

This rental is beautiful - a lovely and very convenient location, within easy reach of Bath and Bristol, but set in the heart of the Mendips.
The cottage itself is a delight - beautifully appointed, with every convenience and comfort, and the decor is cottagey and very individual - I discovered new delights every day -

So glad you enjoyed your stay at Spindle Cottage. We certainly enjoyed you all being here. You were perfect guests and you left the cottage so clean and tidy you are welcome here anytime.
Thank you

"Fantastic, friendly and fascinating!"

Spindle Cottage is like no other cottage I have stayed in before. It is beautifully set up with quirky little doors, fantastic stain glass details and a magical feel. The cottage was extremely warm and cosy yet still spacious. Angela and Alban Bunting are very friendly and welcoming. I really enjoyed reading about how they came to be at Spindle Cottage and all the hard work it took to to get it looking as beautiful as it does now. We used the cottage as a base to visit Bristol, Bath, Wells and Glastonbury which are all close by car.

Thank you for taking time out in your busy life to write such a lovely review and on New Years Day as well. Very inspiring for the rest of 2014.
Hope we can welcome you again.
Kind regards
