    Tesco Express in the nearby village. There's also a canal side walk to a delightful tearoom that can be done from the property. A decent knife sharpener and a measuring jug or two would be good additions in the kitchen but otherwise we had no misgivings whatsoever.

  • Roy

    Convenient for accessing the M5 for travelling further afield and with a bar/restaurant only 3 minutes stroll away. There is also the owner lovely garden available next to the Coach House.

  • John

    The location could not be better for the Somerset coast, the Quantocks and the Levels (though Bridgwater is rather unlovely). If you like cooking the stove, pots and pans, etc. are adequate (but don't try anything ambitious), which is a pity because Pyne's (nearby) is one of the best independent food shops I've ever seen. This is a small quibble (and won't worry many visitors). We've stayed at several Sykes Cottages over the years, and this is definitely one of the best. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
