A lovely child friendly, homely cottage with beautiful views! It was well equipped with very welcoming and friendly owners. The location was ideal for seeing all of Somerset, with Devon and Dorset within easy reach too. We will definitely be planning to return.

Fantastic house, well equipped with absolutely everything we needed for 4 adults and 4 children. The property offers amazing views over the reservoir, a beautiful garden with added bonus of the hot tub. The owners really had thought of everything. We had a perfect family holiday!

This is a wonderful relaxing property, everything you need is there for an enjoyable stay. The owner was very welcoming and friendly, would definitely recommend and we would stay again. I think the pictures of the property don't do it justice, it's much better in real life. If you want somewhere to relax book Jer Mer's Place.

A great house with a great owner. There was lots to see and do within a good distance and the hot tub was great for when you got back in the afternoon from days out.

The house was lovely, very clean and well equipped. The hot tub was great and we thoroughly enjoyed it and purple bathrobes were supplied for each person. The log fire was easy to light and so cosy. We all had a go in the sauna which was fun. Jeremy was a great host and showed us how to use everything. A lovely hamper was supplied on the first day with all the essentials for a first breakfast. We stayed for my Dad's 80th birthday and he loved it. The views over the reservoir was superb and we could find no faults with the lovely weekend we had. Thanks very much!

Arrived Friday 15th April, cottage very easy to find and Jer was kindly waiting for us. A hearty welcome and a very generous welcome hamper which was gratefully received after a 5 hour journey with two dogs. In fact, as we took two dogs, Jer had even included a box of gravy bones in the hamper - a lovely touch. Views across the resevoir were stunning, hot tub was fabulous and the gardens were all completely enclosed so we didn't have to worry about the dogs at all. We were in fact the only people in the lane which was lovely too. We had plenty of room (party of 5 plus dogs). Kitchen had everything required and more (even plastic glasses for use in the hot tub or picnics). I would recommend this place and will definitely be booking again soon. I did read a recent review and took a couple of carving knives and chopping boards but that is nothing. I asked Jer if there was a slow cooker (which there was) but he had replaced it with a brand new one for our visit. If only all owners could be like that. Thank you again to Jer and Mer (although didn't meet Mer), see you again soon.

This place was fantastic. Jer and Mer gave us a warm welcome upon arrival and showed us around the place. There was a fantastic welcome basket with lots of fresh local produce. The house is a good size for a group; we had some lovely meals around the kitchen table and some lovely evenings around the log burner. The house was easy to find and the location is pretty good too (not far from the big supermarkets in the car and there are a few pubs a short walk away). The kitchen has lots of pots and pans although we could only find one tiny chopping board and not many kitchen knives (this made large meal preparation quite difficult). There were lots of board games and a selection of dvd's and books to keep us occupied as well as a docking station to play music through. Overall my friends and I had a great time at this house. With the weather being terrible the log burner in the front room was utilised pretty much non-stop! I can imagine this place would be fantastic in the summer when you can make proper use of the hot tub. Thanks very much Jer and Mer.

My extended family consisted of eight. We have just enjoyed a wonderful week at Jer and Mer's place a lovely detached property the owner's went the extra mile and some, the welcome pack was unbelievable more than ever expected. It had everything hot tub, large garden and outdoor games, and the owners were so lovely and helpful. We really didn't want to leave will definitely be returning.

The owner was there to greet us on our arrival. The property was absolutely stunning with great views and a fabulous enclosed garden topped of with a hot tub on the decking. It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. A real home from home. There is plenty of room for everyone to share the house very comfortably. The property is in a great location.
