The Away with the Kids review
Longlands Cottage is in an idyllic setting on a small country estate on the edge of the historic village of East Coker. It is cute as a button inside and out and just perfect for a family of four wishing to explore this area whatever the time of year.
The holiday cottage
This two bedroom detached single-storey cottage has a private enclosed back garden perfect for alfresco living. The cottage has a really good-sized living space with two large sofas and plenty of space for the family to relax. There is a step down to the kitchen so please note if you’re travelling with little ones.
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could possible need and has an electric hob, electric oven, microwave, washing machine/drier and dishwasher. The dining table in the kitchen sits four comfortably. Of the two bedrooms, one is a double and the other a twin. There is a lovely contemporary bathroom in this cottage. The minimum stay is three nights between September and June inclusive. The minimum stay throughout July and August is seven nights. Changeover day is on a Friday.
The Indoor Swimming Pool
The pool-room is a stunning oak framed building which you can access across the courtyard from your cottage front door. This houses the indoor 13 metre pool and has a lovely seating area to have a coffee and read a paper. The owners who live next door give families priority use daily 9am to 12noon and 4pm to 8pm.
The owners live next door with their own two children and are helpful and welcoming should you need anything. You’ll find thoughtful extra touches everywhere like games and DVDs in the lounge and children's books in the children's room.
Location and things to do
You can stroll into the local village along pretty footpaths for fresh bread and the morning papers, breakfast in the lovely cafe or an evening drink in the village pub.
Some of the best historic places that Somerset has to offer are close by such as the National Trust houses at Montacute and Barrington Court, and the abbey town of Sherborne. The World Heritage Jurassic Coast is just an hour’s drive away – an excellent outing for all the family.
