Owl Cottage had everything we needed (2 Adults 3 Children) 2 rooms, 4 single beds and a sofa bed. A lovely little village which is almost silent at night. We will be going back.
Delightful cottage, quiet peaceful. Didn’t miss a TV at all. Beautiful gardens to explore. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay
Beautiful cottage in a peaceful setting
We had a lovely stay at Owl Cottage. The owners were really friendly and welcoming amd nothing was too much trouble and they were very helpful and accessible when booking, on arrival and during our stay. The cottage is in a beautiful and peaceful setting with a nice pub on the doorstep which serves good food. Having use of the centre’s gardens was fabulous as they were beautiful and we also all enjoyed the use of the swimming pool. There is also a lovely park and playing fields in the village with a little shop and post office. The children weren’t overly excited at the thought of there being no WiFi at the cottage but we played games and could watch a dvd which they enjoyed and at the end of their stay they rated it one of our best holidays and want to go back! We’d love to return to the property and would definitely recommend it. Next time we’d like to participate with the yoga and meditations at the centre and also sample their home cooked vegetarian food! Thank you to the owners for making our stay so pleasant!
The cottage was lovely, very cosy and warm.
We really enjoyed our stay at owl cottage. The gardens which we could access from the cottage were beautiful and very relaxing. As was the swimming pool. They were a great added extra which made our break perfect. Would definitely stay there again to enjoy the tranquil settings.
lovely old cottage
the garden was lovely to sit out in all day long, cottage was well equipped. the stairs were difficult for us to get a disabled toddler up and down but that was our fault for not realizing the stairs would be steep in an old cottage! there is no tv licence so no tv coverage and no internet. the mattresses were very firm. we would stay there again without the children
Perfect country hideaway with a beautiful cottage garden.
Small but well equipped kitchen, cosy sitting room and two nice sized bedrooms overlooking the garden. Lovely dog walks over the fields to the hamlet of Wales and on the Leland Trail to West Camel. It gave us a week of peace and quiet for walks and visits to the nearby towns of Castle Cary and Bruton. We came home refreshed and would definitely visit again.
Dinky was a great guest and a joy to host, we are glad she enjoyed her stay and hope to see her again.
