Right in every way...

By Penny on 07-Nov-2019

Our dog is nearly 14 and when we choose a self catering holiday we choose one with him in mind! if you are not a dog lover you will think this is mad but if you have a dog and feel they are a member of the family then you will find these cottages and the general environment right in every way for consideration of your needs. Comfort and relaxation with plenty of places to visit and for us the accommodation on one level with a sausage dog made it ideal. You have neighbours but are hardly aware of them and the owners are on hand if needed. All the extra facilities such as the laundry and use of the field are added bonuses. Recommended and hope to revisit.

Ticks all the boxes for a couple and their dog

By Malcolm on 07-Nov-2019

This is the second visit to this cottage and it continues to engage and provide an excellent holiday destination. Scrumpy cottage is very comfortable and ticks all the boxes for a couple and their dog. The outdoor areas are immaculate with an excellent dog exercising/play area. The cottage is well equipped and is in an excellent location to visit many of the historical areas in Somerset. Both Ruth and Mike are attentive and are happy to help with any situation that may occur. We cannot thank them enough for friendship and advice during our holiday.
