Lovely short break location
Great venue, brilliant host with lots of really homely touches to make our stay special. Great for the dog who was put firmly in his place by the tabby cat! and for our granddaughter who loved the games shed.
We have nothing negative to say about this cottage. It was big, clean, and full of little details to keep you looking around. It's in a great location with plenty to do nearby. Mary and Mark are great hosts and very easy to deal with. I can't wait to come back.
Great location for NT properties, lovely friendly proprietors, lots of pubs nearby too!
This house had a fab kitchen with everything we needed, and a large porch for all our walking boots! The owners were super friendly and welcoming, and very helpful regarding local information etc. It was great to receive a welcome breakfast pack with milk, butter, eggs from the owners hens (yum!) and various cereals and local apple juice.
The garden was lovely and we really appreciated making use of the fire pit and BBQ, plus we were offered home grown peaches from the tree in the garden, such a nice treat.
The tap house across the road was interesting with lots of real ales and ciders and had a classic car event one night.
We couldn’t believe the amount of National Trust properties that were dotted about in the vicinity, we averaged one or two a day, possibly the most we have ever been to in one week.
I recommend a trip to Burrow Hill cider, and going up the actual hill, an enchanting hill with a single tree, a trig point and a swing at the top - we made the most of that moment and the stunning 360 views.
A great stay, thank you so much.
Short journeys by car will take you to either coast, Exmoor National Park and many National Trust properties.

An ancient market town it retains much of its old world charm and is unique among the many ancient settlements in this remote unspoiled area known as the Somerset Levels & Moors.
Langport is situated on the banks of the River Parrett and this has played a significant part in its fascinating history. Its role as an important trading post in the 18th century is reflected in its fine architecture and in the historic wharfs and warehouses now being sympathetically restored. The attractive river area is now important for leisure and tourism.
Old Langport was situated on the hill at the eastern end of Bow Street, a strategically defensive position. The Celts and Romans came as did the Saxons who had a fortress here. By this time, Langport was an important river port fortified by the Normans. Once a borough with a portreeve, (a mayor or principle magistrate), a corporation and a Town Hall dating back to 1735, Langport has retained much of its medieval character. Many businesses were founded on the strength of the river and the sea but the coming of the railway in 1853 resulted in its rapid decline and the long tradition of the river trade eventually ceased.
The site of All Saints Church was the original settlement with the grave of Walter Bagshot is in the church yard. He became a famous economist, born in Langport, who helped form today's international monetary system. His forbears in the 18th Century established the Langport Bank of Stuckey & Co. connecting Langport to London's financial centre. Langport had had its own mint since Saxon times which brought great prosperity to the town for 150 years.
Langport is a small town of great contrasts between the tightly defined spaces within the town streets and the open green levels where in summer cattle graze on rich pastures. These meadows support many of the original marsh plants which in turn provide habitats for many varieties of plant and animal life. In winter the flooded moors are scenes of unprecedented beauty.
