A proper country getaway between Glastonbury and Wells, quirky decoration and little internet reception. Our dogs Alfie and Jimi loved the gardens lots of scents to track and right outside our door, they had a nice natural feel about them very tranquil. Potting shed cottage had everything we needed and was clean, everything worked well which was great because we...

We stayed in the potting shed cottage from fri-mon myself and my partners first little holiday together. We mainly booked the trip for the hot tub and quaint location for a quiet relaxing weekend. On arriving we found the kitchen infested with ants and many ants were to be found in the lounge also. All food even bread etc we...

We were very sorry you had a problem with the ants, but we are in the middle of the country surrounded by nature and you did leave your food out on the work tops. But as soon as you informed me of this problem in the morning i straight away moved you into another cottage and you were more than...

We have just spent a few days in the Potting Shed Cottage. Lovely quaint little cottage ideal for two. The cottage is in a lovely location good for visiting Wells and the surrounding area. The cottage is well equipped and warm and cosy, nice gardens although the weather was not suitable for sitting outside when we visited, but it does...

John was very welcoming to us. The spot was very good - I liked the peacocks and collection of birds. However, the whole place does need a good trim / touch of tree surgery - it's getting a touch overgrown. We stayed in Middle Earth. Really smart cottage-like shed! - decor was fab, and very clean inside. Everything was provided....

Spider's End cottage was lovely (fortunately no spiders!), clean, nicely furnished, comfortable, and welcoming. The gardens are beautiful, as are the peacocks, and the hot tub was great! We arrived early but were made very welcome, and as the cleaning was completed, we moved straight in ! John was very kind and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Situated between...

We stayed here in September for 2 nights as part of a Groupon offer. Upon arriving there was no-one to meet us, no message saying how we get into Spiders End Cottage and upon ringing the house phone - no answer. Luckily there was another couple on site who advised us as to where they found their key. Once we...

The cottage was just supereb and we was greeted by the owner who was so welcoming. The place is well equipped and just simply brilliant. The gardens are beautiful and there is the use of the awesome hot tub. Great base for visiting nearby places and attractions. Fully recommend staying here.

Lovely cottage, lovely gardens and position in Somerset. Peacocks were stunning. Quirky garden ornaments added to the homely feel. Would have liked to have stayed for longer. John was most welcoming which added to our comfort.
