"Beautiful cottage in a perfect location"

My partner and I stayed at Rowan Cottage during the Christmas period in order to be close to family who live nearby. We initially chose to stay here due to the location and we were thoroughly impressed during our stay. It's a lovely cottage in beautiful surrounds, was imaculately presented and the owners couldn't do enough for us during our stay. We are from Australia so not familiar with the area we were made to feel very welcome. We will definitely stay here again and highly recommend it!

"Ideal site for sightseeing but not idyllic setting for R & R"

The photographs of Rowan Cottage on the website coupled with the intriguing 'treasure hunt' directions suggest a hidden rural retreat, whereas the property is actually situated on an unlovely stretch of main road and backs on to an industrial estate. Having said that, it is quiet and very conveniently placed to explore Glastonbury, which is perfect if you are a New Ager or an aging hippy, into magic, crystals or alternative therapies. It is also within easy reach of a number of other suitably touristy sites, including Wells, Bath and - dare I mention it - the retail outlet at Street., which is a useful option for rainy days as it is covered. If you've got a good deal of money to spare, you can also go to Cheddar Gorge and Wooky Hole; we took the scenic route to avoid the huge entrance fees, which also meant avoiding the crowds while enjoying spectacular views. Somerset is always a delight, whether you're seeking sorcery, scenery or scrumpy, so anywhere that allows ease of access and an opportunity for exploration has to score points. On a more prosaic note, it is also only a few miles from a large supermarket in Wells for the weekly shop.

As described on the website, it is a Victorian cottage with all the charm that entails: a delightful old-fashioned garden leading to the front door, a quaint feel to the rooms, especially the peaceful sunroom looking on to the patio garden. Unfortunately, it also has some of the drawbacks you might expect of a house of that period, for example a large damp patch in the corner of the staircase, a colony of persistent spiders (and their ensuing webs) and a slightly musty, dusty feel on arrival. In fact, the first thing we did was scrub and polish; we are not picky clean-freaks (by any stretch!), but the thick layer of dust in the living-room and bedrooms and the sticky cupboards in the kitchen were a bit much even for us! To be fair, this was easy as the owners had generously left all the cleaning products discarded by previous tenants. They had also thoughtfully provided some tea, coffee, milk and sugar and a wide variety of books to read - a welcoming touch. The kitchen was well-equipped with good quality gadgets, including an extremely efficient dishwasher, so cooking was a pleasure. Similarly, the utility room, accessed through the patio garden, had an excellent washing-machine, dryer and freezer. By contrast, both double beds and mattresses were poor quality and uncomfortable, so we all ended up with backaches.

However, our main issue with Rowan Cottage was that we were always worried we were going to lose our £100.00 deposit by staining the white sofa covers and cushions, scratching the polished antique dining table or breaking the glass placemats and coasters. This, plus the dire warnings that we were not to disturb the neighbours by making any noise after 11 pm, meant that it wasn't as relaxing a holiday as it might have been. I emphatically wouldn't recommend it to a family with young children or a group of friends out for a good time!
