Despite staying during the hottest June since 1976, suffering a bad fall and an infected insect-bite (ouch), I had a lovely two week stay here. As a solo traveller (plus dog) the cottage was ideal in size and location. It at the Bottom of the driveway, but still fairly close to the main house - which is not a problem as there is no interference from the owners.
There is a bedroom, bathroom and living room/ kitchen, which I found just right. Everything was clean and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped with a microwave/grill/cooker, 4 hobs, toaster, kettle, slow cooker, fridge, dish washer (which I never used) and washing machine. Cutlery and plates, etc were all good quality. It is not massive, but is a perfect size for a holiday cottage.
TV has free channels and there is a dvd player and radio.
Bathroom is wet room-type set up, so no steps into shower.
Everything worked well and seemed robust.
Westbury is a good area to be based, between Cheddar and Wells, and on the edge of the Mendips. Lots of places to visit, but I really recommend time spent in the Mendips, which was beautiful. Do admire the views from Deer Leap, and explore Ebbor Gorge. The pub opposite looks good, but I also found The Queen Victoria at Priddy, and The Crown at Churchill both excellent. Chew Valley Reservoir area is beautiful, and there re several local farm shops which sells local meats, cheese and vegetable, and often have tea rooms.
Westbury is easily placed for Wells, Glastonbury, the coast and Bristol.
Lovely stay in a well equipped and charming Apple Barn. Comfortable bed, cosy accommodation, clean and a great base in a good location. Would recommend and hope to stay again. Friendly owner and locals a very enjoyable weeks holiday.
Three night stay here. Handy as just off main road, but set back a bit so quiet. Pub is on other side of road. Owners friendly, but leave you to enjoy your stay. Central heating kept us warm when needed. Nothing fancy, but all clean and tidy and good value. This is a nice little cosy cottage with nicely decorated kitchen/living room/dining room and good wifi internet. It's near to Cheddar Gorge, Wells and the Somerset Levels. Lots of nice walks nearby.
