Suellen and Peter made us feel very welcome and were good hosts.. The property is beautiful in a very interesting area, there was lots to do. We took great delight in watching the animals from the balcony and relaxing . For a relaxing time I would recommend it to anybody.

What a wonderful place! Four of us have just had a five day break in this unique countryside location. It was a joy to be within a small-holding and to know you really were away from the bustle of urban life. The apartment was clean, spacious and comfortable, well equipped with all that you would need to make your stay relaxing and worry-free. The sound and the sight of animals from the windows and balcony provided an ambience and views that were stunning and relaxing; making for a reflective and peaceful setting. The owners, Suellen and Pete, were welcoming, friendly and helpful, providing local information on walks and places of interest. This is a very special place. Thank you.

We all had a lovely time at Uplands.. Despite visiting the beach, looking for fossils, dinosaur parks, lunches out etc, the highlight for the children (aged 4 and 2) each day was going home to see the horses (particularly Archie!), cats and peacocks at Uplands! Suellen was a brilliant and welcoming hostess!

My friends and I have just enjoyed a great weekend at Uplands.. The flat has everything you could need, the view from the main bedroom was stunning and we really enjoyed seeing all the animals on the property! The owners were so friendly and helpful, highly recommended and we are hoping to make this an annual trip! Thank you again!

The proprietors are very welcoming, friendly and helpful, but allow you to keep your privacy.. If you like animals or your children do, this is a really good place for you. They have peacocks, Guinea Fowl, horses and a pony, cats, dogs, ducks, hens and a talking parrot - All of which you are allowed to see. Lovely view from the balcony. We had a great week and found lots to do in the area.

This holiday home was absolutely amazing.. It truly felt like a home away from home. The owners have done an outstanding job to create such a place, stocked full of basically anything you could need. It was perfect for what we wanted, an escape to forget about everything going on recently and just relax. It is perfectly suitable for a family (sure a couple would enjoy it thoroughly too) and our daughter loved getting to see their wonderful animals on a daily basis. Surroundings are lovely as well and there is quite a bit of countryside to explore from the house if you enjoy a walk. It's within an hour's drive to several very nice beaches. There is a good selection of supermarkets in the next town (roughly ten minute drive). After a five night stay I'm unable to fault this holiday home. We felt looked after and were sad to leave.

Having lived and worked all over the world this is the cleanest, best equipped and most comfortable place we have ever stayed.. Would recommend this place to anyone. The place was also really convenient for lots of places to visit if one was on holiday.

The property inside was quite adequate.. There was everything you needed for your stay. Unfortunately the double bed was very hard to lie on. The path of paving slabs leading from the parking area to the entrance door were slippery when wet and overhung by foliage and in my opinion could do with pressure washing as could the patio decking and furniture. The hosts were genial and very pleasant when we spoke to them. The only other point I would like to make is about their dogs. When let out last thing at night they would bark incessantly for ten to fifteen minutes before being called indoors again. During our stay here on one morning they started barking at a quarter to six and another morning at ten past six. Not the sort of time you want to be woken when on holiday.

Good spacious accommodation.. Quiet location. Nice watching the horses, guinea fowl, geese, chickens and cows. Owners very welcoming. Conveniently located for visiting attractions in both Somerset and Dorset.

We forgot to bring any tea bags and was very surprised that none available in the cottage.. This is the only time I have stayed somewhere that did not provide anything,a small jug of milk and a few tea bags would have been adequate.We could smell cigarette from downstairs,as non smokers a bit unpleasant. Another slightly annoying thing was that all the knives were blunt. Other than that we had a very good stay.

Everything was perfect, absolutely faultless. The property was amazing, and the owners were lovely. This place should have as many high ratings/stars as is possible to be given.

Uplands was a home from home for me, surrounded by horses and dogs. The hosts were very friendly and happy to help on all fronts. I was on business for my stay, but the accommodation every evening made me very relaxed. Nothing was missing. I hope to stay at Uplands again if I am back in the area. Thanks to my hosts.

Well laid-out apartment, good for relaxing. Pleasant rural outlook with balcony to main bedroom overlooking paddock with horses and domesticated fowl. Nicely positioned just out of Yeovil with good access to A303 and A30 roads. Plenty of National Trust in the area.

A very quiet and tranquil place, loved waking up in the morning to see the horses and ducks in the field outside the bedroom window. There were lots of places to visit in the area and several pubs and restaurants serving excellent food. One of the most relaxing and enjoyable holidays I have had in years.

This was a home from home with all the facilities provided; a quiet retreat from all our busy lives set in the middle of the countryside.
Mrs Pepper

The whole ambience of the place was just delightful from the welcome from the owners to the condition of the living accommodation. A really wonderful place to stay.
Ms Holbrook

The property was cosy and lovely and warm and everything in the kitchen needed for a short stay was provided. Plenty of TV's and a music centre with some cassettes. The bedrooms were large with plenty of storage. The double room had sliding doors with lovely views to the outside and a balcony shared with the peacocks!!

Cottage very welcoming, and spacious, in a peaceful setting. Lovely view from main bedroom, and liked watching the horses and livestock, especially the peacocks, when they came to eat the grapes from the vine on the balcony. Owners were both very friendly and helpful.
