“Comfortable cottage, great base for walking in the Quantocks”
Reviewed 3 December 2018 for a stay in November 2018

My husband and I had a very enjoyable and memorable week at Hillside Cottage at the end of November. The cottage is ideally placed for rambles in the picturesque scenery of the Quantock hills: don't miss the view from Cothelstone Hill on a fine day. We also enjoyed the well-presented Steart nature reserve where we saw starling murmurations. The nearest beach is just a few miles away at Kilve- a rocky beach where it is not uncommon to find ammonites. There are many excellent farm cafes and historic pubs to eat out in the pretty local villages. Spaxton itself is a friendly village with a community-run shop and the Lamb Inn which offers great home-made pies. We were very comfortable in Hillside Cottage which is cosy, clean and exceptionally well-equipped. We loved our evenings by the woodburner in the huge, old fireplace. The owners provide plentiful local information and the managers are available if needed. We considered our holiday to be excellent value for money. Do travel prepared for Somerset's lovely but narrow and winding lanes.

“Country life’s good 😏”
Reviewed 15 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018

We, Dutch guys, had a wonderful two weeks with our two dogs at Hillside Cottage.
Nice garden, where the dogs could run free and beautiful surroundings for dog walks etcetera.
We went from Calais to Folkestone by train through the Eurotunnel and that was so easy and relaxed. It only takes you about half an hour. I can recommend it to my fellow countrymen. England is a very dogfriendly country and therefore nice to visit if you’re looking for a ‘dog holiday destination’.
When you visit the website of the Eurotunnel, you’ll find all the information you need to know about how to travel to the UK with your 4-legged frien(s).
Have a nice holiday!

“Somerset Escape”
Reviewed 20 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

We found the cottage very comfortable and well equipped. With a private garden and seating for that outdoor dining experience. Set in the small village of Spaxton on the edge of the Quantock Hills. Within easy reach of a number of places of interest and the Somerset coast.

“A very comfortable, cosy cottage in a lovely village.”
Reviewed 26 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Hillside Cottage is a very well maintained, well equipped cottage in the peaceful village of Spaxton and we thoroughly enjoyed our weekend there. We enjoyed the pretty rear garden and can imagine that, in the winter months, the cottage will be welcoming, cosy and warm.
The village has a lovely pub and an excellent community shop - both within a ten to fifteen minute walk of the cottage. We would have no hesitation in recommending Hillside Cottage and would stay there again.

“Lovely village location close to beautiful Quantocks, Jurassic beach and Somerset attractions”
Reviewed 19 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We used the cottage as a base to visit family, see the wonderful Haynes Car Museum, Yeovil Fleet Air Arm Museum, Glastonbury and Cheddar Gorge. We also visited the beach to see the fossils, and enjoyed the steam railway from Bishops Lydyard to Minehead and Dunster Castle. A week was nowhere near enough time to see it all.
The local people were so polite and friendly, and the cottage itself had more thoughtful touches than you can imagine. Excellent value, well done Sandi and Colin, and thanks for welcoming us to your cottage.
