This was a warm and cosy lodge in a lovely setting. We liked the wood-burner to sit beside and the convenience of the en-suite bathroom. The power shower was fantastic! There was excellent WiFi and we found the owners to be friendly. There were lots of things to do in the area..

The Lodge was deceptively spacious, it had a lovely light and airy living area and both bedrooms of a very generous size with plenty of cupboard space. Anyone wishing for peace and quiet could not find a better place to be, even though within a few hundred yards of the village centre. All the local people were very helpful and friendly. Could not fault anything.

The cottage is in an ideal location for exploring Somerset, Devon and Dorset. It is in pristine condition and well equipped throughout. The hosts were very friendly and helpful.

A warm, bright bungalow with everything you could possibly need. It was a very short walk to the village amenities and in a good central location for touring the area.

Lavender Lodge was a lovely place to stay, so homely inside and very cosy, and the area was very quiet which we enjoyed.

Very welcoming hosts and the lodge is perfect - exactly what we want. The Lodge has everything you need to make your stay very comfortable. We really do enjoy our time here and will now make it at least an annual holiday for us.

The Lodge was very clean modern and homely. The village it is set in is a dream! Surrounded by rolling hills it is small, quiet and quaint with a magnificent village shop and pub.

The cottage was very clean, warm, comfortable and fully equipped. A home from home and probably the nicest we have ever stayed in. The owners were friendly and very helpful supplying us with lots of local knowledge.

A beautiful and well equipped lodge, in a pretty and quiet village. The owners were very helpful, chatty and readily available. The lodge was very comfortable and well sized for 4 people.
Mr Wilson

The lodge is situated in a lovely quiet location in a little village but is close enough to many large towns in both directions, if you wish to travel further afield. The owners were very helpful and friendly without being imposing. Would not hesitate to recommend to friends and family and would like to visit again someday.

Location was great as a base, property had really nice contemporary fittings and nice owners. Pub was AMAZING, great staff and food and it was very close as was the shop. It was nice to have 2 bathrooms.
Mr Bishop
June 2014
We were given a warm welcome with the added bonus of a starter pack. The location of the property was superb with the whole site landscaped and maintained to a very high standard. Village amenities were on the doorstep with excellent General Store and Hotel/ Pub. Owners were very friendly and helpful.

Lavender lodge was like a home away from home. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and it was in an excellent location to explore the area.

We had a great time, and were made very welcome. The Wi-Fi worked well. The local Pub was perfect, and the village shop well stocked.
Mr Harwood

The attention to detail was excellent, and the quality of the lodge overall something to be proud of, and we would return one day. The Area was beautiful.
Mrs Lane
August 2013
The lodge was spacious and plenty big enough for the five of us. It was clean comfortable and we had the warmest of welcome. Shop and pub close by, but the surroundings so peaceful, we could feel ourselves unwinding from the moment we got there. Excellent.
Mrs Covington

The lodge was lovely, more spacious than we thought it would be. Great location for getting to places and really enjoyed it.
Mr Maiden

Although we were only there for 3 days, the experience and together with the closeness of the village facilities was fabulous and we cannot wait to go back for a much longer period next time. We have already told work colleagues and family of this little part of paradise.
Mr Baker
September 2012
Lovely cottage, it was spacious and clean and everything we could ever have needed was provided. Nice village setting with an excellent shop and pub just seconds away. Owners were very friendly and on hand if needed but never intrusive. The layout of the site meant that the cottages felt suitably isolated from the owners house. The cottage was very dog friendly which is essential for us.
September 2016
Although we had read the descriptions and reviews of the lodge before booking once we arrived we were impressed with how well equipped and presented it was. The lodge is immaculately clean, very comfortable and quiet. We made good use of the sitting out area on the patio at the back of the lodge which was secluded and private and just right for catching the late afternoon sun. One small point for people taking pets is that although enclosed the garden is not secure. Everyone we met on the farm and in the village made us feel very welcome and we would not hesitate to book again should we return to the area.

The facilities were good and it is just a short drive to many interesting places.

Great peaceful area with easy access to Somerset, Dorset Wiltshire. Only one minute walk to the park for our dog. Fantastic starry nights as no light pollution. The Lodge is clean, comfortable and has lovely finishing touches.

What the pictures don't show are the wonderful surroundings. It's almost like a village within a village. The owner's two barn conversions and all the other buildings within the boundary of the property are all beautifully built and maintained. The views of fields, trees and the beautiful stone buildings of the village are out of this world. This is chocolate box perfect. We had not previously stayed in a lodge home and were amazed at how warm and quiet it was. Inside the property has everything you could need. Quality fittings all round and loads of space. All beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. Poppy Lodge next door sleeps 6 and we sneaked a peek in there and it's just as nice. We're already trying to plan out a big family visit when we can book both of them. The family owners are always there when you need them to make sure everything is OK but never intrusive. Just the right balance. Make sure you say hello to 'Dad' when you see him going past, usually with his wheel barrow. He keeps the chickens fed and everything neat and tidy. He is a mine of information about places to visit in the area as well as the history of the village and all the juicy gossip! It's a comfortable, roomy 'proper' home for a similar price to one room in the usual budget chains. Just can't fault it. Trip Advisor rules prevent me from giving any e-mail address or phone number for the owners if you had any questions that you wanted to ask them before booking. So instead I'll tell you that the key collection is from the offices of 'Chartons Accountancy' which are right next door to Lavender Lodge. Very handy, I'm sure you will find them!

Lodge was Really Great well thought out nice accommodation but the bed was a nightmare horrible to sleep on I just hope it gets replaced it was just a cheap mattress and I think sleep should always be just as important as anything else. Would go back an hate complaining :-(
June 2013
Greeted by the owners on our arrival made very welcome, showed us around lodge and made sure there was nothing else they could do for us. The lodge was in lovely condition and well equipped. The standard of furnishing was very good. The village was ideal location local pub and village store and a garage (2 min walk). What we liked most was the peace and quiet, a very relaxing Easter break.

This cottage was very well taken care of. It is in a good position for visiting Dorset and Somerset. The cottage was very suitable for our dog.
Mr Hall

A lovely lodge in an immaculate setting with very friendly helpful owners. There are several National Trust properties in easy reach, and great walks for the dog.
Mrs Parsons

Loved the lodge, the decor and the peaceful country setting. A good location to explore both Somerset and Dorset combining coast and city days out. The owner was also friendly.
