Reviews for Polden Hills Cottage

Polden Hills Cottage Reviews


  • Lovely cottage

    Posted by Alex on 10/09/2016

    Stayed in this lovely cottage whilst in Somerset for my niece's wedding. It suited the three generations with a ground floor bedroom & wet room for Nanny to the play area for our 2 year old. Very well equipped with everything provided including all the essentials you could need for a late arrival. Would certainly recommend!

  • Would love to return!

    Posted by Karen on 19/08/2016

    Really pleased with this cottage! For a family of 7 and a dog there was lots of room and plenty to do! The little touches like the milk and butter in the fridge and the food basket really made the holiday go from a 4* to a 5*. Enjoyed using the BBQ, the badminton court and the table tennis. The cottage was perfect for my dad who struggles with steps as there was ramps in and out of the cottage and a wet room downstairs. I would definitely recommend this cottage to friends and would love to go back in the future. Great family holiday and lots of memories made.

  • Spacious and comfortable

    Posted by Terry on 02/07/2016

    Loved this well thought out lodge and the friendly welcome and use of the wonderful grounds. We hope to return as the lodge is spacious and comfortable and offers all you could wish for in beautiful surroundings.

  • Beautifully furnished

    Posted by Charles on 16/04/2016

    We chose this property as it was wheelchair accessible for my son, and it proved to be a great find. The cottage has recently been fully refurbished and is in excellent condition through out - beautifully furnished. Location is good too - easy access to Bridgewater, Street and Glastonbury, and Wells and Weston-s-Mare are both also worth a visit. The service was also excellent - we needed a stool for my son as the wet room downstairs is shower only, and when I mentioned this to David he picked one up from a local mobility supplier within a few hours. All in all a lovely few days in a beautiful surrounding. I cannot fault it.
