Stayed for 3 nights with our twin boys (age 11). Lovely cottage which is in fact a self contained annexe to the owners property. Greeted by the owner Meryl on arrival with freshly made Chocolate Brownies - lasted all of a few seconds with the boys !
The cottage is very well presented, and being a recent conversion it has been finished to an extremely high standard by the owner who we understand are in the building trade. A refreshing change from so many short term rentals where everything is a bit tired and pennies have been pinched. Collier House is a very modern renovation of an old cottage and very clean. All equipment provided, coffee machines, modern oven and microwave, washing machine, Sony flatcreen TV, free WIFI etc.. Also refreshing to have all the basics provided such as tea, coffee, sugar, washing up liquid, tea towels, etc.. so as Meryl said in her email to us all we needed to bring was the gin. tonic and a bottle of wine !
Three very well proportioned bedrooms (1 King, 1 Double, 1 Single) with VERY comfy matresses. Just one bathroom with loo and great high pressure shower.
We visited Longleat (40 mins) and Cheddar (30 mins) and can highly recommend both, although we were out of season so can't comment on what they would be like peak times.
As we ate out for lunch every day we didn't try the local pub, however Meryl had left a copy of their menu and I'm sure it would be great
I think this would be a great rental for couples, friends and families so long as the bedroom arrangements work for you. Highly recommended !

Great cottage and very well equipt. Extremely clean and comfortable.
We enjoyed our stay immensely.
Meryl and Martyn great people and came to our rescue when we locked ourselves out - before even having a drink.
Would highly recommend a stay here.
An unexpectedly high level of comfort and decor. Owners live next door and could not have been more welcoming or helpful. Great location - close to all local 'hot spots'. We had a lovely time ... Home away from home. Highly recommended. Thank you to the Toveys. .... Especially for the wonderful brownies left to welcome us!
