    • “Thank you for the goodies and the well stocked/equipped kitchen. Lovely and peaceful.”

    The Stokes Family,

    • “Just wanted to say a massive thank you to the owner of Hill Cottage and the team at Hideaways, for a wonderful mini break between Christmas and New Year. The cottage was superbly equipped with everything a family needs and a gorgeous base for visiting our Somerset family. The seasonal extras (crackers, festive tableware, chilled fizz, cake) plus two roaring fires on arrival were extremely thoughtful extras. It was also super being able to bring our little dog; he enjoyed himself too! The booking process through Hideaways was extremely easy and the price paid very reasonable. It was also refreshing being able to book a cottage for a few nights rather than a whole week over the Christmas/NY period. Thanks again.”

    Guest's Review On TripAdvisor,

    • “Nice property in pretty location”


    • “lovely old cottage but it has been updated to a high standard. The log burner in the dining room is lovely and the location was excellent for us.”


    • “Hi there, just wanted to say a massive thank you for a wonderful mini break between Christmas and New Year. The cottage was superbly equipped and a gorgeous base for visiting our Somerset family. The seasonal extras (crackers, table ware, fizz, cake) plus two lit fires on arrival were extremely thoughtful extras.”

    Mrs Kathy Hampden,

    • “Me, my husband, two daughters and dog stayed here for a week in August 2014. The cottage is exactly as the pictures, and is lovely in 'the flesh'. It is very homely, has a very well stocked kitchen and is generally very comfortable. The surrounding area is so quiet and beautiful. The owner was very helpful on arrival and when the immersion heater 'tripped out' it was sorted out within half an hour. \ It is a great base if you want to travel around Dorset/Somerset/Devon. If we travelled back to this part of the country we would definitely stay here again and recommend the cottage.”

    Guest's Review On TripAdvisor,

    • “I just wanted to say how pleased we were with Hill Cottage. A little tricky to find without a sat nav but worth it. It was well stocked with everything we needed to live comfortably and the position is gorgeous. We will certainly try and use your services in future.”

    • “What a lovely cosy little cottage. We have had a wonderful week in beautiful Dorset and the surrounding areas. Thoroughly enjoyed hiking in the gorge at Cheddar! Also had great fun looking at fossils at Charmouth.”

    Bliss Family,

    • “A superb six days at Hill Cottage only matched by the wonderful weather and local food from farm shops in Chard and near Yeovil! Visited Sherborne, Chard, Lyme Regis and Dorchester. Great walks, including one to Hawkchurch and around the reservoir at Chard. Spent a great evening badger watching at Buckland Newton. After seeing and photographing four badgers until 9.30pm. we were treated to a fantastic star filled sky with three shooting stars!”

    Mr & Mrs Adams,

    • “The cottage and location were the perfect retreat. We all relaxed and our one year old granddaughter enjoyed wandering around the garden and looking at the ducks and cows. The cottage was really well equipped. Thank you for providing us with a wonderful week.”

    The Carters,

    • “We all enjoyed our stay at Hill Cottage so much. It's a beautiful cottage and we really enjoyed the scones, jam, cream and wine, thank you. Nothing has been too much trouble and we have received excellent service.”

    Rumsey Family,

The Property
