Had a fantastic stay, close enough to Cheddar to walk and far enough to be really quiet, delightful.
Easy from start to finish, thoroughly enjoyable stay, great host's in Paul and Judy. If your looking for somewhere different to stay look no further.
Peace & quiet
Beautiful setting, lovely hosts & the dogs were a bonus.
Fantastic stay! Didn't know what to expect from this place, and initially seeing how secluded and rustic it was had us on the back-foot a little. However night after night the cosy log fire and breathtaking views won us over and it very quickly felt like a second home. Paul and Judy are lovely people and really went out of their way to make us feel welcome. If 5 star accommodation and convenience is what you're after this is not for you, but if you're happy to throw on some wellies and go for a hike in the cow fields before coming back to a log fire and a cuppa you'll do just fine. Would most certainly stay again!
Dear Charli& Laura. Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay with us. You were absolutely brilliant guests who managed to get the most out of your stay. It was a pity the weather was so wet but it didn't seem to slow you down and you can catch up with the extra walks when you come back ! We will certainly look forward to welcoming you both back to the farm in the near future. Best wishes .... Judy & Paul
A really nice small cottage.
What a lovely stay for two nights. Wish it was longer though. The cottage was really cosy with a log burner which made the evening in perfect. We loved the chickens that wonder around. Judy and Paul were great hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them . They gave us our privacy which was nice. Over all I would recommend this for a couple wanting to get away from it all.
Thanks for taking the time to review your stay in our Shepherds Cottage. We are always glad when we get such a glowing review. We look forward to welcoming you back to the farm soon. Best wishes .... Judy & Paul
It was great to meet Judy and Paul with their wealth of farming knowledge, they are so friendly and what an enjoyable stay. The cottage was delightful & cosy, we felt at home straight away. A fire was glowing when we arrived and Paul said it took him back to his teenage years on the farm. It was lovely to be welcomed by all the animals too. The view is amazing and to just sit in the evening looking across the fields to Cheddar reservoir was just perfect. We wish we could have stayed longer, perhaps on our next visit. If you are an artist or writer this is the ideal place to stay, with just the sound of the birds & animals to occasionally distract you. Thank you so much for everything & the yummy eggs.
Best Wishes Rowena & Paul
Beautiful views, easy walks to the top of the cliffs of the gorge and then down through the gorge its self. Log fire and fresh eggs, Lovely hosts too.
Thank you Lucy for taking the time to review your stay with us. It was an absolute pleasure to meet you and we are glad you enjoyed our facilities and walks that our proximity to Cheddar Gorge offer. We look forward to seeing you back at the farm again very soon. Best wishes ..... Judy & Paul
