Lovely cottage, lovely owners but not for us.. Hoped there would be dog walking from cottage and asked on booking but nothing near cottage. Garden was lovely but not secure and all traffic passed by front door, especially to caravan park at rear.

This is the fourth Sykes cottage we have stayed in and it was the best! The owners are lovely people and it makes a world of difference them living on site. A real treat to be surrounded by flowers and lawns. Great to sit under the parasol. Very well furnished and equipped cottage. The owner told us that she furnished it to the same standard as her home. The location is lovely - in the middle of nowhere but only eight minutes to the motorway. Excellent wifi. Our dog loved it. All in all a lovely holiday in a very comfortable cottage. Would we return? YES!!!!
The owners of Pear Tree Cottage are very friendly and helpful, we were greeted on arrival and shown around the cottage which is very well equipped, exceptionally clean and comfortable .. We were so impressed we have booked another holiday for later this year.
Lovely little cottage in a secluded but great location to access attractions.. Pub & shop a few minutes drive along the country lane. Owner very friendly & welcomed us on arrival. Would stay again!
We came down for Christmas. It is beautiful, warm and cosy. All amenities were in the cottage and it is finished to a very high spec. Sue had even put up a Christmas tree and some trimmings, very tastefully done. My car broke down on 23rd Dec and she offered to shop for us. Lovely place, lovely owners. Would definitely come back
Pear Tree cottage was gorgeous and exceeded our expectations.. The owner was really helpful and even offered to pick up some groceries as our car had broken down! There had been a lot of effort to make the cottage look festive with tasteful decorations as indeed was the tasteful decor. All needs were catered for in the fully equipped kitchen. It was warm cosy, the beds were really comfy and I can't fault anything! It is a great base from which to explore Somerset and blissfully quiet! We will definitely be back!
The owner could not have been more welcoming.. It had been raining all day but there she was and the log burner was roaring away making up for a very miserable journey. Cottage was well laid out and we could not have asked for anything more. So forget the time of the year and the weather it could not have been better.
The owners were very kind andhelpful..
Have nevedr been to Somerset before, and found Pear Tree Cottage, extremely pleasant with a very helpful, friendly owner, and what pleased our group also was the nearness the different places to visit were, and how easy it was to get to them from our destination, I would be happy to re-visit there, we were comfortable, in beautiful surroundings..
We had a wonderful time made very special by Fiona and Gary who have a beautiful cottage with everything you can think of.. Fiona baked a delicious lemon drizzle cake for our arrival with a hamper of lovely things. The bed was so comfortable we slept better than at home. We visited lots of places around the area. We will be going back to visit again
What a wonderful place pear tree cottage is, so clean and comfortable and the owners are lovely.. A great place to visit Somerset and Devon.
Lovely comfy cottage , friendly helpful lady owner.. Definitely consider a return visit.
Really nice cottage with everything you could need in it.. Lovely garden . . Lovely owners. Nothing was any trouble to them (but they were not intrusive) and by the end of the week we felt that we had known them for ages.
The area was peaceful, people were friendly. Village only one mile. We were lucky to have a couple of really hot days so it was nice to sit outside the cottage under the umbrella for a few hours. The small caravan field is no problem, in fact we took our dog for a run up there every morning and evening. We met some really nice caravan owners to chat to.
Burnham on Sea is only 10 minutes away by car. No dogs on the beach but Apex Park (free to park) at the far end is great for dog walking. Takes about 40 minutes to walk around the lake and then plenty of picnic benches and seats. A catering van plus ice cream van are in the car park. All in all a lovely place to spend a couple of hours or more with or without a dog and less than 10 minutes from cottage.
We also loved Wells only 13 miles away. And Clark’s Village, Street for shopping. Weston Super Mare is only 15 minutes away.
We would highly recommend Pear Tree Cottage.
Lovely week in Burnham pear tree cottage was very pretty.. And extremely peaceful and quiet lovely countryside. Owners very friendly and welcoming couldn't ask for better holiday. Weather was great too .Highly recommend !!!

Sue the property owner made us feel welcome and the property exceeded our expectations.. It was a real pleasure to meet her and her husband.
We look forward to a return visit in the future.
We arrived on a Friday afternoon to be met by Sue the owner, she was very
Pleasant & welcomed us warmly.. She had even bought us a special cake. The cottage was beautiful & very homely. She took us on a tour of cottage & was very helpful answering any
Questions. The cottage was very clean & had all necessities we could want, even a lovely log burner, with a starter pack. Fresh flowers. We really enjoyed our stay at Pear Tree Cottage & would recommend it to any one, who would like a peaceful quality cottage to stay in.
A very comfortable and warm cottage.. We lit the wood burner once, but it wasn't really needed. Sue was kind and helpful providing home made cakes and fresh flowers on our arrival. The local pubs were excellent for meals. From the noise of our town, we appreciated the quiet of the countryside.

Perfect family get away.. Close to all the attractions and a very comfortable property. The owner was friendly and welcoming
Mrs Koenders, July 2017
Our second stay in this cosy cottage.. The fire was lit ready to greet us. Sue had thoughtfully left me a helium birthday balloon, which was a really lovely touch. Just as we had on our first say we received a warm and friendly welcome. The area is beautiful and we enjoyed the dog friendly local beaches. A great weekend. Thank you. :)
Mrs Aylin, March 2017
Sue was really welcoming, she was so kind and helpful without being intrusive.. We had a problem with our car and they were massively helpful. We will definitely return. Can't thank Sue and Alan enough. The cottage is great.
Mrs Aylin, December 2016
We had a brilliant week, the owners made us very feel very comfortable, I do not think anyone could find fault with this holiday cottage..
Mr Underhill, October 2016
Pear Tree Cottage is an ideal centre within easy reach of Wells, Glastonbury, Burnham-on-Sea and other mid-Somerset locations.. The cottage was very well cared for and the owner very friendly and helpful. This cottage is on the Somerset levels and there is a field "drain" running alongside the garden making the cottage not suitable for small children unless well supervised. This is stated in the details of the cottage. We enjoyed our stay at the cottage and are hoping to return next year.
Mr Metcalf, September 2016
Very good cottage , would go back there again ,
Mr Pocock, September 2016
We had a lovely holiday, the accommodation was fantastic, we could not fault it at all.. Sue, one of the proprietors, was friendly and made us feel very welcome on arrival.
Thank you to Sykes and thank you to Pear Tree Cottage for a great holiday.
