An excellent centre for seeing Somerset and Dorset

Henstridge makes an excellent centre for visiting several NT houses and gardens and other historical sites in Somerset and Dorset. We also enjoyed some long walks, favoured by the weather. The house is well equipped and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the garden for sitting out. Least convenient was the on-street parking, sometimes having to go some distance to find a space.

David C. Ellis

Excellent location and excellent and friendly service.

The location of the cottage was ideal for touring four counties: Somerset, Wiltshire, Dorset and Devon. The proprietor was extremely friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend this accommodation.

Friendly, compact, centrally located

Our host was very friendly and happy for us to share her large patio and garden. She was also kind enough to lend us extra cutlery when we had friends over for a barbecue. A very enjoyable holiday in a good location for exploring Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire. Frodo's is small but had everything we needed. The only downside was the village itself which didn't have a lot to offer.

Peaceful and pleasant

The cottage was very clean and tidy, the hosts were friendly, but did not interfere. Being Easter, they had even left us a card and chocolate Easter Bunny!
The village of Henstridge is just off the beaten track, but within easy reach of several historic and interesting market towns, plus as much beautiful countryside as you could wish for!


A cosy hideout

Henstridge is convenient for touring some beautiful English countryside. We stayed over Christmas, and the owners of this nicely appointed property had decorated it for the season and added some other little details. Being at the rear of the owners' house ensures an absence of noise, and the heating works well.

looked after.
