Wonderful property with everything you need for a fantastic stay. Location within easy reach of places to go and see in all directions. If that was not enough there is a pub/ restaurant next door call THE DUCK lets just say the food and drink where fantastic.

A real Gem!
We found Polden Cottage to be just perfect for our anniversary stay with our little Yorkie. The cottage has everything you need and the bed is real comfy too! Being next door to a pub ended up being a real bonus as we ended up eating there twice, and no worries about how to get home!. Would definitely highly recommend and will stay again. Thank you for our lovely stay.

5/5 Excellent

3 night stay at Polden Cottage
We had a lovely stay, the cottage was clean, beautifully decorated, and well equipped. Communication with Host Lorna was excellent, and the Duck pub next door had fantastic food and the staff were very friendly. We would definitely stay again as it is a short drive to Glastonbury, Cheddar and other attractions.
