We had a lovely break in manor cottage. Beautifully decorated and set out with everything we could need. Owners are really friendly and they take excellent care of the cottage and garden. It is in a great location with an easy drive into Brean/Weston and Bleadon village has a lovely shop and cafe and three pubs and an Indian takeaway. Everyone we spoke to was friendly. We also enjoyed a lovely walk around Bleadon village following the west mendip way walk-I can't wait to go back. …
Beautiful Home in the heart of a Somerset Village
Not for young family
We had an email on the day of check in , I did not read this until we were in the house, it states they do not supply towels, for a family of 5, (2children under 3!) this was not a good start. Luckily there is Waitrose and other supermarkets a short drive down the road.
Upon arrival the garden has not been looked after for a while, unlike the pictures in the advert.
The windows haven't been cleaned in ages, spiders nests and finger marks.
Inside has a funny smell, but looks lovely and bright. Then in closer inspection the tv stand has not been dusted, finger marks again on the mirror coffee table, and then in a drawer in the kitchen, there are actual cobwebs, I mean how long does that need to be closed for cobwebs to occur in a drawer with cooking utensils in?!
It's not all bad though, cute welcome note on the chalkboard, lovely easy to use and clean oven, large fridge freezer, (even if there was very out of date food left in there) good sized rooms.
The downstairs double bed is very creaky (not good when you have a 6month old baby in our travel cot trying to sleep) downstairs shower room, 2 basins not needed, but all lovely looking and the shower is not bolted down but works ok, pressure was not that strong, but worked. Smaller bedroom was lovely but not able to air it out as window was on to a brick wall, as is the kitchen window. Upstairs, obviously odd lay out, knew from pictures, but was used by our 8yr old so didn't really matter. The house backs on to a pub and we were not disturbed by any noise and also the church rings bells every hour also didn't disturb us one bit. Little cute playground is literally 2min walk down the road.
All in all, lovely family weekend away. The house just needs a little extra clean, supplied with towels and tidied up garden. Oh and far too many things that could get broken, lots and lots of cups and saucers and vases and general nik naks that are not needed. …
