“Once again, faultless, warm, comfy and so well equipped.”
Reviewed 12 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This is our second visit to Avalon Cottage and once again we were delighted. Spacious and plenty of room to move around, which suits us as my husband has difficulty in walking. We visit family in South Petherton and unfortunately were not able to get to the pub. Will endeavour to come in Spring or Autumn next time. Thank you Isobel and Peter for making us so welcome and for the wine and biscuits.

“Great little cottage”
Reviewed 29 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Very cosy and peaceful accommodation which is immaculately clean and well equipped - the shower is worthy of special mention as it is really powerful with p,eanty hot water. The area is central to lots of attractions which are very easily reached by car. The local pub (Rose and Crown) is very close to Avalon cottage and the meals here are not only varied but are of a very high standard at reasonable cost. If visiting the pub on foot take a torch with you as the short lane isnt lighted all the way. We would happily return for another stay and would recommend to our friends.

Note -
There is a very large bed and if you like extremely firm mattress then you will be comfortable, personally i think a topper would be good.
Wifi is very difficult to obtain. We only managed to get onto the internet on two short occasions but im sure this is likely to improve at a future date but worth checking if access is very important to you.
