Very Good

“Lovely accomodation in a central pretty location with friendly welcoming hosts”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2016

We had a lovely time at Ford Farm Cottage. A friendly welcome from Tina and Gary. Cottage well appointed ,clean cosy and comfortable. In a great location to explore the surrounding countryside and Mendips. We travelled no more than a 15 mile radius and easily managed to fill the week with things to do. We would highly recommend Ford Farm Cottage for the perfect break away from it all

Owner's reply: Hi Karen, Thank you very much for your few kind words and we hope to see you both again soon. Best regards, Tina & Gary

Sweet cottage for 2 near to Wells and convenient for exploring Somerset. The friendly owners made us very welcome and gave us some ideas on places to visit. Cream tea to greet us was an appreciated gesture.

“Cosy, modern cottage in an excellent location.”

Reviewed 5 Sep 2015

Ford Cottage is a delightful place to stay, and is exactly as described. It is in an ideal spot for visiting the many attractions of Somerset and beyond. Our hosts, Tina and Gary, were very friendly and accommodating. We would highly recommend a stay in this lovely cottage. Thank you Tina and Gary!

“Great place to stay to explore Somerset”

Reviewed 17 Aug 2015

We arrived after a terrible journey to be greeted by Tina. She showed us around the Cottage, described the surrounding area (highlighting the best places to visit), and then left us with a cream tea she had prepared for us. This was just about the only intervention other than the odd chat in passing, we always felt that she was there to help if needed. Given the nature of the cottage ie thick walls and remote location, there is no way that you will be booking tickets online the night before your visit to any of the many attractions. Our phones are with Vodafone and Orange and are capable of 4G but with no wifi, broadband or network coverage they were rendered useless. No bad thing if you are looking for time away from the rat race, as we were. Even the tv struggled to provide stations other than BBC. The cottage is very well quipped with a Bose CD/Radio, good dvd player, etc. we even found scissors when required. The cottage was spotless and very comfortable. The beds structure was solid, the mattress amazingly comfy with no "role together" whatsoever. The furniture was in keeping with the theme and it all worked as it should with plenty of storage for our clothes for a weeks stay. The bathroom was in great condition and, again, immaculately clean. Our only reservation is the lack of a shower. Don't get me wrong the role top bath was big and there was plenty of steaming hot water BUT we did miss the ability to just jump in the shower and get on with the day. It did mean a more leisurely start to the day though... just make sure you do not get the plug end. We tended to eat out a lot but did cook the occasional meal. When we did the kitchen was superb and everything worked as it should. The whole feel of the cottage is welcoming and a credit to its owners, it is not "tired" as so many holiday lets can be and it does not feel like the dumping ground for an owners cast-offs (as some holiday lets often feel). As frequent visitors to Somerset, our itinerary was slightly different to the usual Cheddar Gorge, Wells, Longleat etc, preferring to travel further afield to places such as Monkey World in Wareham (awesome), Stonehenge (dull), Bristol Science Museum (great fun even for 50 somethings!!)... The cottage was central to all of the above but secluded enough to be quiet and peaceful. Would we recommend the cottage? In the blink of an eye. A fantastic place with fantastic owners... we will return. A massive thank you to Tina and Gary

A lovely place to stay and an ideal location for exploring this part of Somerset. Very welcoming hosts and well appointed, clean and tidy cottage. Just everything you want for a peaceful break in the country.

Had a wonderful 2 week stay in this delightful cottage, very comfortable and had everything you need. Tastefully decorated and loved the bathroom. Good location and welcoming hosts, loved the home made "Cream Tea" on arrival.

“A clean, comfortable cottage everything you need available,lovely welcoming on site owners”

The cottage is a five minute drive from the cathedral city of Wells. Steeped in history ,you can spend hours wandering the ancient streets, there is plenty to see and do . The park and ride is a must. to enjoy a day in Bath, .We have rented this cottage for the third year and highly recommend it.

“Holidaying in Henton”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2013

We needed a self catering hideaway for a week to allow some exploration of the Mendips and Wells - also we wanted to visit two National Trust properties at Barrington and Tyntesfield. Ford Farm Cottage provided an excellent base to do these visits and also a relaxing and very well appointed comfortable spot to relax.

“Idyllic cottage - fabulous owners!”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2013

We have stayed at Form Farm Cottage twice - both tomes for two weeks at a time. Gary and Tina were so friendly and genuinely wanted our stay to be perfect, which it was until Andy was ill. Gary and Tina looks after us both so well and their cottage was so idyllic that we returned the following year. the cottage was an ideal retreat but was close to lots of places of interest and a host of restaurants and pubs for good food. The only thing that could have made the cottage better would be somewhere to hang coats when coming in and perhaps a tumble drier to complement the washing machine. Fabulous holidays each time!

“Lovely Cottage!”

Reviewed 17 Aug 2013

Stayed 3 days at the cottage at Ford Farm. It is a lovely place, decorated and equiped to a very high standard. Tina the owner is friendly and helpful. She gave us lots of information about places to go and to eat. The location is ideal for exploring the area and we visited Wells, Glastonbury, Cheddar, Salisbury and Wedmore. Great little break! Would be great in any season.
