Yesterday I received an email from Tripadvisor asking me to verify that someone was a bonafide guest. Once I’d confirmed their authenticity¬†the review was revealed and I was left almost speechless. I’m terribly grateful to Mrs G for taking the time and effort to write this – it means a lot. 20* is quite an accolade!

Unblievably beautiful! Wow!!

¬†Updown Cottage is way more than 5*. I would give it a 20 out of 10! It is so beautiful and historic and everything is so first class. Jane was so helpful before and after we arrived and really added so much to our experience. The cottage had absolutely everything that we needed. We had two families together in the house and had been worried about space but it was perfect. We especially loved the huge dining room table overlooking the Blackmore Vale. What a great place to eat and play games as well as to sit and look at the view. My husband and I stayed on the top floor and loved the privacy of this suite. What a view from the window and the room was spacious and the bath beautiful. We really loved staying on such a beautiful street. People were out photographing the street every day and it was fun to know that they were taking pictures of where we were lucky enough to stay. We had been worried about the steep hill but it was absolutely no problem at all. We ate at the Grovesnor Hotel restaurant (wonderful, wonderful!), Ye Two Brewers (great, great!) and Amore’ (very good). We loved the village and spent a whole day sightseeing and shopping. Loved the convenience of the grocery stores as well. All in all it was absolutely the BEST way to end our trip. We stayed in England for 5 1/2 weeks and this was the BEST place we stayed. We would love to go back again and highly recommend this property.
