    "We had the most amazing time, it was very relaxing and we felt at home. Would love to visit again soon."
    Mrs Valerie Marshall, London,
    "My teenage granddaughter loved the swimming pool and sauna! The owners were very friendly & accommodating and able to advise places of interest that were accessible by public transport. The beds were very comfortable and all linen was lovely and clean. It was a lovely place to relax but with plenty to do if you so wished and was suitable for ALL age groups. In fact, we enjoyed it so much we are going to book again for next year."
    Mr Craig Hughes, Malpas, Cheshire
    "We really liked the location of the cottage, field at the rear of the property, swimming pool and sauna."
    Miss Natalie Shepherd, Dartford, Kent
    "The sauna & pool area were fantastic, the whole cottage is first rate and local to Minehead & Taunton for shopping. We enjoyed the rest & relaxation so spent much of our time lazing at the cottage. I used the sauna every day, which was 5 star, the entire place was great & we hope to return next year. Also, the hosts were most welcoming, even their dog was super friendly."
