Wonderful property, location and host
We had a fabulous time at Tamsin's property. The cottage has been renovated to a high standard, is very comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. The pool was a huge hit with our son and the garden full of colour. The location is also superb, just under the Tor, with beautiful views over the Somerset countryside. Tamsin was a kind and helpful host, she was welcoming and full of ideas and connections that made our stay very special. I highly recommend staying here.

Amazing Family Holiday
I stayed here the 1st week of the summer holiday with my husband and 5 year old twins and had an amazing time. The property was lovely and the finishing touches including the welcome gifts exceeded my expectations. Tamsin was really informative about the area and what walks are available straight from the property. My children especially loved the pool which they used in all weathers. Would highly recommend

5/5 Excellent

Absolutely perfect stay
We had the best time staying at Tamsin’s stunning cottage. The pool was fantastic, the extra little touches made us feel super welcome and the garden was stunning. Couldn’t fault our stay at all. We will be returning as it was the perfect spot to visit some great tourist destinations. Longleat and Wooky Hole were only 40 minutes away too so that was perfect.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful property in an English country garden.
Ideally located for country walks and climbing up to the Tor. Our host allowed us full access to the beautiful garden and pool to suit. Could do with a bit more storage space in the kitchen for dry foods. Another armchair too. Thanks is for a lovely stay.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect family holiday
Tamsin’s cottage is absolutely beautiful and in a fantastic location! Being able to walk from the back gate to Glastonbury Tor was a real bonus. Our 3 year old daughter loved playing in the pool and large garden. Would highly recommend this place anyone and hope to return in the future.
