"Wonderful location, great property"

Fantastic place to stay with everything you could need. Hot tub is a lovely extra and bath robes are supplied which makes the run back indoors a much more pleasant experience. Very comfortable lounge in the conservatory with amazing views across the countryside and the steam railway which runs right past the window. Large corner sofa which was lovely for just the two of us, but if at full capacity of six would be a tad cramped even with the extra chair. Whole cottage very clean and tidy, and easy to keep that way even with a dog (very dog friendly too). Lots of local information for places to visit and walks suitable for all, which makes a great change from some places we've stayed. Overall we had a great time & would definitely like to return.

Many thanks- hope to see you again one day- have you seen our new property by the steam railway line - The Railway Carriage?

"relaxing cottage right next to the railway."

The cottage was very welcoming, lovely soft furnishings and some tasty treats were waiting for us. The hot tub was wonderful.

"Lovely cottage in great location."

We stayed with friends for a long weekend in a railway cottage. We had alovely time. The owner provided us with a small welcome pack of cookies, milk, cider and chutney which was much appreciated. Everything was spotlessly clean and the cottage was superbly equipped. The four of us were warm, comfortable and cosy. Railway Cottage fully met our expectations. The cottage is located on the West Somerset Railway and that was part of the attraction for us. Sitting in the hot tub watching the trains go by was bliss ( especially with glass of champagne in hand) A lovely cottage in a unique setting. Highly recommended. The local pub, the Bicknoller Inn was ver good.

"A great holiday in a unique property"

We thoroughly enjoyed our break in Railway Cottage, which was spotless and well resourced, with a lovely 'welcome pack'. The information prior to arrival was excellent, and everything was exactly as planned. The house was intriguing; watching the steam trains was fascinating, and we very much enjoyed walking and exploring this area, which was new to us.
