My wife and I were looking for a late booking in the Cheddar area . We had been invited to a family get together and required a base for ourselves and my parents . A central location with easy access to amenities and leisure facilities was a must. Accommodation had to tick a number of boxes for 2 octogenarians and a pair of 40 somethings .
All I can say is Ash and Janet beat the competition hands down. This apartment is perfectly located in a beautiful, picturesque position . Privacy is found at the back of the property with far reaching views across the rooftops of Cheddar . The rooms are spacious , immaculately presented and decorated tastefully.
On arrival we were greeted by Ash, who also owns the shop below , he took us up to our rooms and showed us around. There was a hamper of essentials and treats , the refrigerator contained strawberries and clotted cream. Both my wife and mother were in heaven . It's the little touches that matter, those little touches are everywhere.
Altogether it made for a wonderful getaway . If you have a chance pop into the shop , it'll be worth it .
A note of caution , if you are not great on your feet be careful of the stairs .
To Ash and Janet could I just say Thank you . We hope to see you again
The apartment is modern with beautiful interior decoration. The rooms are a nice size, the kitchen is nicely equipped and the beds were incredibly comfortable. Lots of warm bedding for cold nights.
The owners were available for questions and our asks during our stay. we are very grateful for their assistance and hospitality.
The location of this apartment is its greatest asset. It's in the heart of the gorge and we could walk to all the attractions. Would come back here again!
We stayed at Millstream Retreat in Cheddar in November 2016 for 4 nights, my goodness what an amazing apartment, Ashley & Jan have certainly created a 5 star holiday retreat, better than any hotel, the location is superb especially if you don't want to use the car with a bus stop just down the road, thank you both very much Ashley & Jan for making our holiday very special. Look forward to seeing you in 2017.
My friend and I stayed for 3 nights over the August bank holiday weekend.
The owners were very helpful and quickly answered any questions from the moment we booked and all through our stay.
We were both very impressed with the presentation of the apartment. The apartment is spacious, spotlessly clean and the furniture is all modern and comfortable.
All essentials (tea, coffee, washing up liquid etc) were in the kitchen. Thank you for the thoughtfully prepared and much appreciated welcome hamper.
The location of the apartment is great, just a few minutes walk from all the attractions in Cheddar. Cheddar has a few takeaways (Chinese, curry, fish & chips) which we used a couple of times and enjoyed sitting on the decking area eating our food and having a glass of wine :-) There are a couple of pubs in Cheddar and plenty of cafes for breakfast.
There is also a new, small Sainsburys store about a 15 minute walk from the apartment.
After reading other reviews I was concerned about the parking situation, the apartment has its own driveway which is easy to get on and off during the evening but very difficult to reverse off when the shop owners are parked on the lane during the day. The owner was very helpful and allowed me to use his parking space on the lane and he used the driveway, problem solved :-)
We would certainly recommend the apartment to our friends/family.
What a place to stay we had five nights at the apartment and what a gem it was the welcome was great from Ashley the apartment was absolutely spotless all the mod cons you would ever need not that we did as the pub that Ashley recommended was great the food was excellent very quite in the evening just the stream to listen to which was very calming all in all a great retreat will be coming back that's fact great stay thank you from Richard trudy vernon and of course Barbara ps thanks for the welcome hamper the wine hit the spot
