Holiday Rental House
Flo's Cottages are relaxing holiday cottages complete with a luxurious indoor pool which little ones will love and where parents can unwind. The 2-bedroom cottage is located in the idyllic South Somerset countryside, on a small country estate which families sweep into through double electric gates from a quiet country lane. The views are pretty as a picture and there is an enclosed gravel garden at the rear, which is a sheltered sun-trap for eating outdoors and evenings under the stars. The owner is happy for children to play on a tree swing and trampoline in her own garden but there’s also a little lake through here so they must be supervised. Visit England has justly given Longlands Cottage a 4-star rating, with a gold award and the owner has equipped the cottage with baby and toddler ...Flo's Cottages are relaxing holiday cottages complete with a luxurious indoor pool which little ones will love and where parents can unwind. The 2-bedroom cottage is located in the idyllic South Somerset countryside, on a small country estate which families sweep into through double electric gates from a quiet country lane. The views are pretty as a picture and there is an enclosed gravel garden at the rear, which is a sheltered sun-trap for eating outdoors and evenings under the stars. The owner is happy for children to play on a tree swing and trampoline in her own garden but there’s also a little lake through here so they must be supervised. Visit England has justly given Longlands Cottage a 4-star rating, with a gold award and the owner has equipped the cottage with baby and toddler essentials, from a cot, high chair and plastic crockery to swim nappies and toys. The styling and furnishings are the epitome of contemporary cosiness and boutique finishing touches include White Company toiletries, 600 thread linen and sumptuously soporific duvets. The icing on the cake at Longlands Cottage is undoubtedly the stunning pool, just a few paces from the cottage and lockable by guests for the safety of straying toddlers. A wall of arching timber windows flood the pool house with light and create a luxurious poolside sun lounge area, with wicker furniture and an air hockey game for added amusement. Steps lead into the beautiful heated pool, and it’s just 1 metre deep all the way around, with the deepest part in the centre at 2 metres. Being 14 metres long, the pool is long enough for a few leisurely laps and big enough for families to have fun with the pool toys provided. The pool is open all year round from 9am to 12 noon and 4-8pm. Please note The Cottage is available for 4 night or 7 night breaks commencing Mondays or 3 or 7 night breaks commencing Fridays. Accommodation overview Longlands Cottage is an ideal cottage for a family of 4 plus a baby. The master bedroom has a king size bed and the second bedroom has twin beds. A travel cot is provided and there is space for this in the master bedroom. The bathroom is ultra sleek and modern, including a bath with an overhead shower. The sitting room is bright and spacious, with a pair of sofas, TV with a built-in DVD player and a Bluetooth radio, plus there is a selection of DVDs, books, toys and games. The sitting room leads through to the kitchen diner which is well equipped and includes a range style oven, dishwasher, washing machine and coffee maker. The entrance hallway provides useful storage space and has a rack for muddy wellies.More

About the neighbourhood
East Coker in South Somerset, just over the Dorset border, is a pretty, quintessential English country village with its myriad of lanes, village pub, playground, church and cafe it's lovely just to have a potter round.. Just 2 miles from the convenience of Yeovil it has a totally rural feel. East Coker is immortalised in the poem of the same name by the famous poet T.S. Eliot whose ashes are interred in the village church.
Getting around
There are great walks and cycle routes nearby but the car really is the best form of transport!
