Das Haus war sehr geräumig und gut ausgestattet. Die Lage war sehr schön und optimal für Ausflüge z.B. nach Bristol und Stonehenge.
Thank you Eva for the kind comments. You will be welcome back anytime!
Amazing cottage - exceeded my expectations
The cottage was exactly as it looks in the photos, but felt even more spacious. It was perfect for our large family - beds for everyone, more than enough toilets and showers, and a great spacious kitchen to prepare food and eat in.
The area is so quiet and peaceful, yet close to the A303, so easy to get out to tour the beautiful Mendip Hills of Somerset. The cottage is in a quiet lane surrounded by lovely homes and quiet lanes for enjoying an evening walk.
The house itself was bright, welcoming, and gave us a relaxing and home feel atmosphere. I loved that there was some basic supplies available, such as tea bags, sugar and laundry soap for a couple of washes.
I also liked the privacy of the home and yet ease of access to the owners if needed. We were welcomed on our arrival and shown around which was really nice. It was great having fast internet WiFi - allowing us to stay connected.
If we were staying in the area again I would definitely choose Kingfisher Cottage. No hesitation - and the price point was spot on - honestly great value for the high quality of house.
We travelled to Cheddar Gorge, the Rock of Ages, and Glastonbury from the house. All within 45-60 minutes. A Morrison’s grocery was just 5 minutes away for all our food needs.
We appreciated the hospitality and genuine welcome we received from Alison and Tim. Thanks for having us!
Fabulous cottage in a fabulous setting
Booked this cottage as seemed an ideal location/size for a family get together coming from Essex/Cornwall and Canada! We weren’t disappointed, very warm welcome from Alison and the cottage was incredibly well equipped..the private garden was lovely and the surrounding countryside was stunning.. thankyou to Alison and Tim for being so friendly, informative and helpful. Would definately recommend.
We were delighted to host Linda and family and glad everything worked out well. You would all be welcome back again! Thanks for looking after our cottage.
Beautiful place to stay
This is an idyllic place to stay
We were 4 adults and 3 children so needed plenty of room
The cottage is spacious and well equipped
It was is better than home from home
Staying late October in to November I hoped we would be warm enough
The underfloor heating downstairs was really efficient and upstairs was just as warm
It has 2 lovely en-suite bedrooms and a family bathroom all the showers were spotless and worked well it also has a downstairs loo
The twin and the single bedrooms were also great
We only stayed 5 nights but it was so easy to settle in quickly because everything we needed was there
We didn’t spend much time outside due to the time of year but in the summer the garden would be great the little stream at the rear of the property is very pretty
We used the cottage as a base for sightseeing during half term and
To attend a family wedding
The owners were so accommodating they lent us a tie to replace the one we had forgotten !
I cannot find anything negative about this property
Many thanks for the kind comments and review! We were delighted to hear it all worked out so well and hope you will visit again if you are in the area...
Very well equipped
We had a fantastic week,the weather was good ,the owner's were friendly and helpful ,the property was ideal for us ,very well maintained and equally well equipped,providing most things to make our stay enjoyable and relaxing.
This is a superb cottage, very well equipped. Slightly out of the way but that’s what we wanted, peace and quiet other than the birds!
We were made up of two families with young children and the cottage is big enough for everyone to have their own space while plenty of space in or out to come together.
