We loved the cottage and had a wonderful time in Somerset. The information folder provided gave us some great tips to make the most of our break. The cottage itself was wonderful; spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable and very homely and cosy. We also found the WiFi extremely useful. We have already recommended it to friends and look forward to re-booking ourselves soon.

The Cottage was very clean, tidy and nicely decorated, with a well stocked kitchen and nicely enclosed garden for the dogs. The welcome folder contained plenty of information on the local area and there were plenty of maps to use to help us explore.

The cottage is lovely and perfect for a couple or small family. We used the wood burner several times and it heated the whole cottage thoroughly. The garden is secure, which was great for our dog. The location is great for exploring Somerset.

A beautiful cottage with everything you could possibly need, and in a lovely village. The location is ideal for exploring Somerset. There were some lovely walks from the village which our dog also enjoyed.

In our opinion it was like home from home. The cottage was very well equipped and comfortable. In a great location for touring Somerset. We couldn't of wished for a better place to stay, every need was catered for. Would hope to return in the future.

Beautiful cottage in lovely surroundings. A great deal of thought had gone into the design and furnishing of the accommodation, which made for a very easy and relaxing holiday. Really appreciated the safety gate and high chair for our young son, and the helpfulness of the man who called me with the key code and provided lots of useful information. The owners had also provided tonnes of information about the practicalities of the cottage and of local attractions, which again made planning our days very stress-free.

A very nice cottage with everything we needed available- a comfortable home from home. An ideal location for all nearby attractions with a good sized garden for pets. I would willingly recommend this property.

The cottage was 'perfect' in every way. Everything had been well thought out. We loved the garden especially the views and sunsets over the back field. Again, well thought through to enable visitors to get the most out of it. I can not rave enough to my family and friends about this lovely place. We have stayed in several cottages over the years but this is my number one! I hope we will visit again in the future.

The cottage was lovely. We had a wonderful holiday, and would certainly use Sykes Cottages again, and recommend you to friends and family.

The cottage was quite delightful and this made it particularly good as was the weather. We liked the fact that you could sit in the front and back gardens to enjoy the sun. We thought the amenities in the cottage more than fulfilled all our needs. We particularly liked the fact that there was a king size bed, which was very comfortable, as this is what we're used to. Excellent Broadband

Lots of nice walks and viewsinthe Quantocks. We had a lovely dog walk from pretty Quantoxhead down to the coastal path. We wandered along the sea line, not for the faint hearted, towards Chantry. Look for the quaint tea gardens. Here you can enjoy lovely traditional food. I had tomato and sweet potato soup with lovely bread, absolutely scrumptious, best ever. My better half tucked into a cream tea. Finished the round walk with a stroll back to the car along a footpath through open fields. Dunster castle , Weston S. Mare and Sands bay were enjoyed. An enjoyable visit to Taunton was topped with our lunch. Try and find "Loafers" near the centre. They are tucked away near the end of a small shopping arcade. They do a wonderful selection of lovely take away food. The choices available are vast. The biggest problem is choosing, and it is healthy and tasty. lovely staff also. Back to Spaxton. Lots of lanes. The cottage is best approached from Bridgewater from West st, just past Morrisons on the Broadway.

Our holiday was absolutely wonderful, due in no small part to this chocolate box cottage in an idyllic setting ! superbly furnished throughout. a great place to spend a week and recharge your batteries. Would highly recommend this wonderful property.

We arrived fairly late after a long-ish journey to find a lovely cottage - a welcome pack, which included tea, coffee, milk, biscuits & chocolates, had been left for us and was very welcome indeed. A designated parking space has fairly recently (I believe) been created in the front garden - this is very useful as the terrace of houses, of which Hillside Cottage is a part, got quite busy and it would have been difficult to park on the narrow road otherwise. There is also the facility to charge an electric car if you have one! The cottage is very comfortable and nicely decorated. There's also a washing machine and dishwasher; the fridge is on the small side but it was ok for us. The wood burning stove was lovely - the first basket of logs & kindling being free with a charge for additional logs used which is fair enough. The bedrooms are a nice size and the beds comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped. Mobile reception isn't great - there are a couple of spots in the cottage where you can get a signal but this is mentioned in the cottage guide. The Wi-Fi is very useful. Spaxton is a lovely quiet village and, as it has no street lights, is good if you want to check out the night sky. The village has a community shop and there are plenty of supermarkets in Bridgewater, about 6 miles away. Hillside Cottage is very well placed for exploring Exmoor & the coast and I would definitely recommend it.

This cottage is lovely - very clean and tidy. The dog loved the outside enclosed garden. All mod-cons, everything you could ask for. Lots of info provided for things to do and theres lots to do! Great places to take the dog! I shall be definitiely recommending this little haven.

We stayed in the Hillside Cottage in Spaxton in May for a week. We found the cottage clean, well looked after an very welcoming. The location was easy to find and isn't too far away from a few smaller towns with supermarkets, but is far enough in the countryside that it is very quiet. Well found the cottage well equipped for a family holiday (for us two adults and a 4 year old). The cottage has a modern feel with the perfect mix of old cottage environment. There is a wide variety of cooking utensils - although I'd suggest bringing a few knives, forks, spoons as those at the cottage are plastic. There are a lot of sharp knives and other cooking utensils otherwise. The only other thing worth noting to is to do some food shopping every couple of days - the fridge was ideal for us for fresh food for about two days, there is a freezer but it is a small freezer box in the fridge (ideal for us as we just needed a way to freeze our ice packs for our lunch bag). The beds were comfy and we slept well. The garden is a good size and although we didn't bring a dog I can see why people with a dog feel it's an ideal place for them. The washing machine was very useful - prevents loads of washing when we get home! LOVED the fire! There was a lot of information provided about walking routes and local attractions. Very very ideal for walkers. For us it was a little out of the way - about an hour to most kid friendly attractions, but there was a lot of variety on offer in the location. Also notable thing about the cottage is it is surrounded front & back with rapeseed fields and if you have hayfever or allergies make sure you bring some tablets. The views are spectacular though! Also wifi is located in cottage (or not shared off near location) - all info supplied in the house welcome book. Phone reception in and out in areas of the house. Overall we've been really impressed and have had a wonderful time. I'd highly recommend it as it's been so so lovely. I'd definitely come back again, excellent value for money

We booked over the bank holiday weekend with our two dogs. The cottage is amazingly well equipped, a real home from home. It was a relaxing break, such a peaceful place to stay. Lovely outlook from bedroom window of fields and more fields. Dogs loved the back garden. Very central to tour Somerset and Devon. Would definitely recommend this cottage and would love to go back.

My wife and I were lucky to find this cottage for the Easter break. In our opinion it was like home from home. The facilities were excellent. The cottage is clean, very well equipped and ALL needs are catered for. The enclosed garden was particularly safe for our dog. The location of the cottage is ideal for touring Somerset, plenty of information was supplied for doing so. We will definitely return in the future.

Hillside is a lovely cottage, and the enclosed garden was brilliant for our dogs. Really dog friendly. Lots of information on places to visit at the cottage. We loved it
