    A wonderful week at Upside Down Cottage, everything was brilliant, thank you so much, we had a fabulous time at the cottage and exploring the area.



    out of 10

    We had a lovely time at the cottage, everything was just as described with all the equipment . The outdoor pool was perfect for our grandson and as we had some nice sunshine he was in it 3 days out of the 4. Perfect for a family, or in our case, grandparents, daughter and grandson. The location was perfect too, we visited Wookey Hole, Muchelney Abbey as well as Glastonbury and Wells, all within a very short driving distance.



    out of 10

    So well equipped and the little extras were very kind. We thought the cottage was roomy and loved the touches such as games to play, DVD and CD player. The wine and shortbread were delicious and made us feel so welcome. We would definitely recommend it. It was also so near a lot of great places to visit too so we didn't spend hours in the car. Very good value.



    out of 10

    Unusual holiday cottage in a perfect location for birdwatching on the many nature reserves in the Somerset Levels, and exploring the surrounding towns and historic sights. Well-equipped, spacious and cosy, and the hosts are very helpful and welcoming. Some minor upgrading is required, and the upside down design can be challenging for elderly guests, but on the whole, this is one of the best cottages we have stayed at in the UK.



    out of 10

    Fantastic accommodation perfectly located within a stones throw of Glastonbury. The hosts are lovely, very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. We will be staying here again.,
