A welcoming, cosy and quaint cottage full of character. The real fire was a bonus. The owner provided everything you could think of and more! It was very clean as was all bedding and towels provided.

The owner had provided kindling, logs and coal for the fire which we enjoyed. The cottage had plenty of hot water, and was clean, and in a good condition. The kitchen was very well equipped, and we made good use of it. We loved the village, and the neighbours were very friendly and helpful. We had a great time.

A very peaceful get away from it all location. Beautiful meadows nearby, ideal for dog-walking. Friendly locals.

A very clean and accommodating cottage with a 'homely' feel about it. The Red Lion local pub was very friendly, serving nice food. A trip to Cheddar Gorge is highly recommended and is not too far to travel. If we went to Somerset we would use the cottage again. Thank you.

Very convenient for touring about SW England and S. Wales. Very comfortable. Well equipped throughout the cottage.

We are from Australia and loved being able to stay in a cottage in an English village, something we have wanted to do for a long time. This cottage was very comfortable, very cosy and everything in it worked beautifully. I enjoyed cooking our breakfast each morning on the Neff cooktop in a very lovely and well set up kitchen. We loved being able to walk down to the local Red Lion pub each evening for dinner - I think they were beginning to think we had moved in! We went to Babcary to follow up some family history which we were able to do at the local church and also by talking to some of the older locals in the village. Apart from that, the cottage is in a good spot for sightseeing. We managed to go to Glastonbury, Yeovilton and Montacute in the few days we had.

The cottage was idyllic and just as I imagined. As per my previous bookings with Sykes, I found the process easy and the staff were friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay at the cottage again and use Sykes in the future.

Lovely little cottage that takes you back in time. Just the 2 of us and our 2 dogs and we loved it. Everything you could want was there including broadband that was just great. Very clean and well equipped. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 was the lack of a shower but otherwise it would have had 5 stars without hesitation.It was so quirky and a welcome retreat after a busy day discovering new places. Well placed for National Trust properties and the Haynes Car Museum is a must. Would return anytime.

Particularly good central location, able to visit Somerset and Dorset beaches. Plenty of walks with the dog and some interesting towns and villages to visit.

We found Babcary a great central point for visiting lots of places in Somerset, Dorset and eastern Devonshire. The cottage was very clean and well equipped. Kitchen and bath have been upgraded although a shower attachment in the bath would be nice. The village is very picturesque and quiet.

A Fantastic stay. A lovely cottage in a very nice and friendly village. Pub about 2 minutes walk away, and about 30 minutes walk to the nearest shop. Highly recommended

Great little cottage, close to pub (good food, poor choice of beer) and well located for a good variety of days out. Owners were flexible and accommodating, the booking process was easy and the cottage had everything we needed.
