An understated gem in a excellent location for touring.
Owners are unobtrusive yet attentive and very friendly.
Property spacious and decorated to a high standard with extensive gardens and recreational areas for keeping the younger ones happy.

Ravenswood has so much to offer

I was looking for a relaxing break for myself at short notice and came across Ravenswood cottage. The cottage is fantastic with everything you will need, all rooms are well maintained and well equipped with a homely feell with good outside facilities for children set in idyllic surroundings. Ravenswood is in a great location for discovering Somerset everything just a small drive away. Ravenswood has everything to offer so much so I've booked for next year with the whole family.
Thanks to Eve & Vince see you next year.

Hidden Gem

  • Stayed: Jun 2013
Recently stayed at the beautiful Ravenswood Cottage and what a wonderful week was had by all! Going away with a 2 year old and a 3 year old can be tricky, but the fantastic thing about this property are the facilities on site for children: play room, well equipped garden (slides, trampolines etc.), even an old train carriage for them to play on! The view over open countryside is glorious!
Eve and Vince were extremely helpful when needed, but equally stayed out of the way and very much let you "Get on with things"! There was a very generous food basket laid out for us upon our arrival, including such things as: eggs, cheese, bread, jam and butter, which was greatly appreciated, as the nearest "big" shop is Tescos in Wells and the local shop in Wedmore is expensive!
Lots to do in the surrounding area, including Wookey Hole Caves, Weston- Super-Mare and Cheddar, to name but a few!
The property itself was cosy, spotlessly clean and brilliantly equipped.
We will definitely be returning, couldn't recommend highly enough!
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking time to write this review and I look forward to seeing you sometime again in the future.

A fantastic holiday

  • Submitted: Jun 18, 2013

The cottage was fantastic - clean, comfortable and spacious - and the grounds and equipment were perfect for the kids (aged 7 and 4). Eve and Vince were friendly and helpful yet unobtrusive, and the lovely bread, butter, jam, cheese etc left for us was much appreciated! We will definately be recommending the cottages to others and hope to return for another holiday.
We had a great holiday (unusually lucky with the weather!!) and found Box Farm to be the perfect central location for a variety of activities. We really enjoyed the lovely beaches at Burnham, Berrow and Brean and visited Glastonbury, Wells, Axbridge, Cheddar, Wookey Hole - all in very easy distance. Would highly recommend walk at Ebbor Gorge, visit to Wells Cathedral, Brean Splash (indoor and outdoor pools) and stunning views from Glastonbury Tor and Brent Knoll.
Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write this review and thanks for recommending us to others.

A natural haven for wildlife and an area of incredible, natural beauty, this part of Somerset has a natural charm all of its own.

Cheddar Gorge and caves, along with the caves at Wookey Hole, are spectacular and not to be missed.

With a working flour mill just 'down the road' and the famous Wilkins Cider Farm open for visitors to sit and chat with the locals, you will find the welcome very warm.

The climate in Somerset in temperate.

Historic Wells with its' Cathedral and Abbey, along with Glastonbury, its' festival and Tor are only a short drive away.

The village of Wedmore is famous for its links with Alfred the Great. He had his holiday home there and it is in the beautiful village church that in 878 Alfred and the Danish leader Guthrum signed the 'Peace of Wedmore'

With its' designer shops, cafes and restaurants, it is a very attractive village.

There is always something going on, whether it be the real ale festival in September, the annual Opera performance or plays.

Other Activities: Caving, climbing, basket making, shooting

Golf: Wedmore Golf Club, which is one of the most prestigious in the South West is only 1.5miles away.
