“Beautiful cottage, beautiful location”
Reviewed 12 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed in the Hillside Cottage in Spaxton in May for a week. We found the cottage clean, well looked after an very welcoming. The location was easy to find and isn't too far away from a few smaller towns with supermarkets, but is far enough in the countryside that it is very quiet. Well found the cottage well equipped for a family holiday (for us two adults and a 4 year old). The cottage has a modern feel with the perfect mix of old cottage environment. There is a wide variety of cooking utensils - although I'd suggest bringing a few knives, forks, spoons as those at the cottage are plastic. There are a lot of sharp knives and other cooking utensils otherwise. The only other thing worth noting to is to do some food shopping every couple of days - the fridge was ideal for us for fresh food for about two days, there is a freezer but it is a small freezer box in the fridge (ideal for us as we just needed a way to freeze our ice packs for our lunch bag). The beds were comfy and we slept well. The garden is a good size and although we didn't bring a dog I can see why people with a dog feel it's an ideal place for them. The washing machine was very useful - prevents loads of washing when we get home! LOVED the fire! There was a lot of information provided about walking routes and local attractions. Very very ideal for walkers. For us it was a little out of the way - about an hour to most kid friendly attractions, but there was a lot of variety on offer in the location. Also notable thing about the cottage is it is surrounded front & back with rapeseed fields and if you have hayfever or allergies make sure you bring some tablets. The views are spectacular though! Also wifi is located in cottage (or not shared off near location) - all info supplied in the house welcome book. Phone reception in and out in areas of the house. Overall we've been really impressed and have had a wonderful time. I'd highly recommend it as it's been so so lovely. I'd definitely come back again, excellent value for money

Thank you for taking the time to leave your helpful and complimentary
review, we are so pleased you enjoyed your time at Hillside Cottage. The
cottage is surrounded by beautiful arable farmland. The fields of yellow
Rape are planted every fourth year usually flowering in May, it is very
attractive and the honey bees love to collect the pollen. The owners of the property and have been in touch with us to apologise for the misunderstanding over the stainless steel cutlery and would like to let you know that they have relocated the cutlery to the kitchen area which they hope will help . It would be a pleasure to welcome you back in the future.

We booked over the bank holiday weekend with our two dogs. The cottage is amazingly well equipped, a real home from home. It was a relaxing break, such a peaceful place to stay. Lovely outlook from bedroom window of fields and more fields. Dogs loved the back garden. Very central to tour Somerset and Devon. Would definitely recommend this cottage and would love to go back.

My wife and I were lucky to find this cottage for the Easter break. In our opinion it was like home from home. The facilities were excellent. The cottage is clean, very well equipped and ALL needs are catered for. The enclosed garden was particularly safe for our dog. The location of the cottage is ideal for touring Somerset, plenty of information was supplied for doing so. We will definitely return in the future.
