Self-Catering Reviews

Mr Green

The hosts are amazing and very helpful.. Great place with amazing local scenery with a great way of farming.
Ms Mason

Was a beautifully unique house.. Comfortable, quiet and private.
Ms Mason, October 2019

We had a lovely time at the Roundhouse - really atmospheric and beautifully built.. It's got everything you need - warm even on cold days with the woodburner and a good supply of hot water. I thought this was great value holiday for half-term and a nice, gentle introduction to more sustainable holidays for kids.
Mrs Crawford, October 2019

Didn't realise we would be sharing with quite as many spiders that we could see let alone the ones we couldn't.. Understood the situation with the toilet, however, this was not cleaned until Wednesday and we were due to leave Friday and it did smell. Didn't feel we were able to wash properly due to the small bath and hand held shower as my partner is over 6 foot. The owners were lovely and very friendly, however, we could not relax and I love being in the country and roughing it but even still we left a day early. The property needs some fixing up as the photos are not true to state as were done when originally built some years ago.

The Roundhouse is a superb little getaway.. Very cosy and comfortable inside, but not at all cramped. Great care has been taken to make the Roundhouse ecofriendly , whilst also having enough of the day to day 'luxuries', such as hot water on demand, to ensure you don't have to 'rough it'. Lovely peaceful surroundings on an organic farm, which you can walk around freely and enjoy the beautiful countryside, and the farm animals. The owners are very helpful and really care about your stay. They are always available, whilst never being intrusive. The Roundhouse is well situated to visit attractions such as Bath, Wells, Glastonbury, Nunney Castle, etc, and has a good variety of pubs and eateries within a short driving distance.

Wonderful, peaceful space located on a quiet farm.. Enjoyed the environmentally friendly approach to living and the opportunity to have a weekend away from busy life. Great hosts - in touch but not pushy. Roundhouse has the basics provided but at a high standard. Warm and cosy with space for our family of 4.

Relaxing and very friendly occupiers
Mrs Wood

The Roundhouse lived up to our expectations in all ways.. Perfect tranquility and peace in comfortable, immaculately clean surroundings. The owners could not have done more to make us feel welcome yet also allow us perfect peace and relaxation. A true getaway yet close to many spots for sight-seeing and experiences. A perfect retreat!
Mr Stewart

Lovely host, excellent location for exploring Somerset.. If you don't like quiet it's not the place for you, no T.V. WiFi or radio ( which I think would be a good thing to take) Read the blurb about the accommodation so you know what is involved , it has a composting toilet which was no problem for us and it's the first time we have used one, ( just needs a little step for the more vertically challenged ) All in all we had a very pleasant stay.
Mrs Franks

Had a lovely stay at the Roundhouse over the Easter holidays.. Lovely accommodation perfectly located for vising Bath, Longleat, cheddar Gorge etc. Loved the Rayburn and countryside views, wish had time to go visit the pigs. Thank you!

This was a great place located on an organic farm run by Helen and Brock who are passionate about the organic lifestyle and live it to the full.. It was great to be allowed to sample this first hand and has converted me to buying as much organic produce as I can, my partner was already a convert. The roundhouse was warm and comfortable and we jutted loved the tranquility and back to nature aspects of this cottage. The bonus was looking up at the stars with no light pollution just marvellous. Our 8 year old boy loved feeding the pigs and our walks around this lovely area.

We fell in love with the Roundhouse the moment we saw it on the website and the reality did not disappoint, the roundhouse is beautiful and unique in a relaxing picturesque setting. If you do want to venture out you are perfectly located to top attractions. Our children also adored the garden that accompanied the house.

Returning to the Roundhouse was a pleasure. The cottage has had even more added since our last stay! The owners made us very welcome and the farm is such a peaceful and healing place for a break. We are already planning our return!

It's so lovely to be able to spend quality time with the person you love, not having any distractions. Working together to make food using the Rayburn was so wonderful and having fresh produce from the farm made it even more special. All the little extras that the owners added just really make your holiday. We will definitely be back again.

We were after a few days rest, peace and quiet in a new environment and this is exactly what we got. Our thanks go to the owner and their family for creating such a unique spot in Somerset. Their attention to detail, their welcome and their generosity made the stay a memorable one. We look forward to coming back to The Roundhouse some day soon.

We fell in love with the roundhouse as soon as we arrived.. The design and décor is amazing. We wanted to be alone and somewhere romantic and peaceful. We found everything we wanted. Its beautifully designed, built and warm (once you get fire going). Its romantic, peaceful and tranquil. If I had to describe in one sentence about the roundhouse. Its like it was written in a Roald Dahl book and then someone imagined what they read and built it. We would definitely stay again as it really is a wonderful and peaceful place. Thanks for a great time!

A unique experience, the Roundhouse felt like home right away, so carefully built, lots of attention to detail and a genuinely low impact holiday home. A perfect mix of simplicity and luxury. The farm is a great place to explore, and we slept like logs! We are already planning our next break there.
