Henstridge is convenient for touring some beautiful English countryside. We stayed over Christmas, and the owners of this nicely appointed property had decorated it for the season and added some other little details. Being at the rear of the owners' house ensures an absence of noise, and the heating works well.
May 2015
The cottage was very clean and tidy, the hosts were friendly, but did not interfere. Being Easter, they had even left us a card and chocolate Easter Bunny! The village of Henstridge is just off the beaten track, but within easy reach of several historic and interesting market towns, plus as much beautiful countryside as you could wish for!
September 2012
Lovely little cottage, perfectly positioned to explore Somerset and Dorset, plus in easy walking distance to the nearby pubs.
October 2011
Our host was very friendly and happy for us to share her large patio and garden. She was also kind enough to lend us extra cutlery when we had friends over for a barbecue. A very enjoyable holiday in a good location for exploring Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire. Frodo's is small but had everything we needed. The only downside was the village itself which didn't have a lot to offer.
December 2012
Found the holiday had everything we were looking for, it was very comfortable, we found it just what we wanted, and very central for the many things that we did while on our break. Would certainly go back again in the future.

Henstridge makes an excellent centre for visiting several NT houses and gardens and other historical sites in Somerset and Dorset. We also enjoyed some long walks, favoured by the weather. The house is well equipped and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the garden for sitting out. Least convenient was the on-street parking, sometimes having to go some distance to find a space.
