"Wonderfully Friendly, Fabulous Location and Very Pretty Cottage"

This was a really pretty cottage which was very spacious in a great location with trampoline and football pitch and park next door. My kids loved feeding the chickens and playing with the owners pets. The cottage is really close to Glastonbury which was good, just a short drive away. We loved being away from it all down a country lane but it was really the welcome and care and attention that we received from the owners that made this such a lovely holiday. I have never met such lovely holiday home owners. They, for me made the holiday the best. While we had our own privacy, knowing that they were just next door for extra fire wood, advice about areas or just a friendly chat was just great. My children really enjoyed their holiday home as did I and we would definitely go back there again.
