Flossy Brook Reviews

10/10 - Wonderful property, quiet peaceful location, property well equipped & safety paramount with lots of stair gates for the little toddlers! Only one little thing would be from the ladies point of view was to have a dressing table & mirror with a plug socket near as we felt all the plugs seem to be out of reach of a mirror, but by no means did this spoil our family holiday as it was wonderful. Thankyou for excellent service.- Simmonds - May 2018

9/10 - We loved being met by Ali on arrival with flowers and a wonderful plate of cakes ..such a nice touch ..It was beautifully clean and set out and very well equipped. It was very well stocked which felt nice and was lovely and clean and warm, although some people were still very hot with the heating off so one guest felt a flat sheet option may be helpful. The trampoline seemed to have a lot of mosquitos in it so we didn’t use it as much as we thought. We struggled to get the towel rails to work so it was difficult to dry the towels except in the swimming pool. It was nice to be met by the owner and have a little bit of connection to the village .....we loved all the artwork on the walls ..we had a gorgeous memorable stay and are all very keen to return again ..thankyou to all the staff who were so pleasant. We went for a beautiful walk around the village and to the lakes.- Hillier - April 2018

10/10 - The property was amazing. The swimming pool and underfloor heating were the property highlights and were used to affect especially in the cold weather. Ali, the owner of Flossy Brook was so helpful and was there if we needed anything. If she was not around we would have been lost after suffering a short water outage due to a house fire in the village and also experiencing a foot of snow on our last day. Due to the very bad weather (foot of snow) on our last day, we were unable to leave the property and it was too unsafe to travel due to road closures etc. Ali, the owner of Flossy Brook took it upon herself to accommodate us for an extra night stay free of charge which was very considerate as our party consisted of a 38 week pregnant lady and a three year old girl. Again, Ali was amazing - King Group - February 2018

10/10 - Everything was perfect, we really enjoyed our stay.Connis Family - February 2018

10/10 - Experience was fantastic, beautiful house and everything thought about. Not sure what I needed to take but everything was provided, down to salt and pepper, tea, coffee and sugar. Children loved swimming pool and playground. Flowers and cakes were lovely touch. Minor comment would be could do with a few storage boxes if you want to take snacks out for children, but this is just nit picking! We went to Lyme Regis beach and had coffee at Jean's cafe. Lovely and good service. We went to Castle Drogo, walk was nice but castle closed! Also went to Wookey Hole. Caves and guided tour was excellent, but the rest was a bit tacky and confused as to what it was meant to be. Buy tickets online for discount. In summer might be busy and parking a problem. Robbins Family - February 2018

9/10 - The kids loved the pool, the beach at Lyme Regis and fossil hunting at CharmouthBlatch Family - February 2018

10/10 - The service we had from Sleeps 12 was excellent! The staff were very friendly and ready to help with any questions we had. The emails sent were always timely and very helpful. The house was a fantastic house for children and adults. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was extremely well equipped. There was a great supply of games, books and videos and information leaflets for local attractions. The swimming pool was great!! On the days when it was a bit wet for the outside equipment we had a marvellous time in the water! We found the cooking a bit troublesome as everything seemed to take longer to cook than we expected. Our welcome from Ali made us feel at ease straight away. She explained everything about the house to us very clearly. We also enjoyed the cakes! It was a fantastic experience from start to finish! - Cairns Party - January 2018

10/10 - Well equipped, spotlessly clean. Superb layout for family celebration. Pool excellent. Very dog friendly. - Birch Group - November 2017

10/10 - The property was comfortable, clean and a fantastic place to celebrate to a large family party, everyone really enjoyed the pool. We only had three days so we spent every day at the property to make the most of our time together. - Baker Family - November 2017

10/10 - It was amazing, we never left the house! We could have done with a few outside toys for the children, other than that it was perfect! - Cooke Family - October 2017

10/10 - Meeting Ali the owner was lovely, the homemade cakes were a super touch and her tour of the house helped to settle us very quickly. A great stay, we'll be back! - Sonley Family - October 2017

10/10 - We were mainly lucky with the weather as mist was mostly in the morning. The pool was a good place to use and easy to uncover and re-cover. Maybe could have another step at bottom of ladder as a bit of a drop and not too easy to use when getting out. Not a criticism though just a suggestion. We went to Lyme Regis which was about 1hr drive away. Lovely beach and walks. Dawlish was another nice day out but the roads in and out were a bit narrow and hair raising. Saw the black swans for which it is famous. also the beach allows dogs on. We also did dirt buggies which was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone but again, the drive was about 1hr away. - Green Family - September 2017

10/10 - We enjoyed the space fully, we just need to make the stay longer next time. There will be a next time! As a big family we didn't need to go far as everything. The weather, pool, play area, play ground and also the pub were great! There was room for everybody. - Barker Family - September 2017

9/10 - The swimming pool was a favourite. We visited Pecorama in Beer during our stay which was great for children! - Lewarne Family - September 2017

10/10 - Really relaxing time and enjoyed the pool and a day out at Lyme Regis. - Crotty Family - August 2017

10/10 - Loved the peace and loved the facilities like the pool and play area for kids. Wifi could be improved and also a better selection of DVDs for kids or a playstation or something when weather was very bad. Sidmouth was lovely for a day out as had a beach and shopping, also the air museum was great fun too. - Benton Family - July 2017

10/10 - We spent the whole of our weekend in the property and had the most amazing time. I arranged for a sandwich company to bring afternoon tea, prices were very reasonable & beauticians to help us relax for my best friend's hen weekend. - Copestake - July 2017

9/10 - The house was fantastic lovely location great swimming pool. Just could do with more wardrobe space in bedrooms. - Snell Family - July 2017

10/10 - You could not have done better! We enjoyed the whole package, thank you. - Clarke Family - June 2017

10/10 - Lovely secluded property which is so well equipped and very clean with a friendly and welcoming owner. We particularly enjoyed the homemade fairy cakes on arrival. We arrived very late in the evening, so a Welcome Pack of essentials such as milk and butter would have been helpful. - Ball Family - June 2017

10/10 - We particularly enjoyed the indoor private swimming pool. The kids loved it and spent several hours playing in there. It was also very relaxing to have an evening dip with just the pool lights on after the kids went to bed. - Millns Family - May 2017

10/10 -  We loved the wildlife, seclusion and self contained property. The preparation of the property was exceptional. The Children were more than happy to stay around the house swimming and playing on the outside play equipment. - Wheeler - April 2017

10/10 - The swimming pool is lovely and the patio area is a real sun trap (even in March!). Great to be able to walk to the pub nearby. Very picturesque countryside. We visited Lyme Regis and West Bay. - Edwards - March 2017

10/10 - This is our second stay at Flossy Brook, the house is amazing set in its own grounds; such a peaceful place to relax. The grandchildren particularly loved the swimming pool. Ali is a lovely person - we arrived to a beautiful vase of flowers and a plate of tasty home made cakes! She feels like a friend now! Hopefully we will be going back. - Sharpe - Feb 2017

10/10 - We enjoyed every minute of our break away. Being able to choose from the extras made life easier when booking meals to be cooked in the house, days out and pamper days in. Such an amazing experience, one we would love to have again and would recommend to others. - Hanley - Feb 2017

Excellent cottage with beautiful views. Relaxing location and a great social venue with a lovely pool. We've had a great stay - the nicest Sleeps12 property we've used. Made for an excellent weekend. - Benjamin, Gess and Don

Beautiful location and building which far exceeds all the information on the web-page. Had an absolutely wonderful time, beautiful house, wonderfully kitted out, absolutely loved the pool. I just wish that we had more time here, or at least more hours in the day. What a wonderful restful weekend. - Hen Party - Bristol

Flossy Brook is in a very private and peaceful location and provides all the essentials needed for a stress-free holiday. The home is superb and very spacious. Facilities inside and outside (to cook, watch TV and Blu-ray, play in the pool and on the trampoline, slide, swings, etc.) all make for a wonderful holiday for adults and kids. 100% recommended. - Mr Dowsett - Hampshire

The cottage is beautiful, welcoming, very well equipped, good location, immaculately clean. Would highly recommend and the best cottage we have stayed in so far in the sleeps12 collection. - Plato

What a fabulous place - none of us wanted to leave! Beautifully presented accommodation, spacious and perfectly equipped - made for a very relaxing weekend. The pool was the icing on the cake - our five year old girl learnt to swim without armbands this weekend! Sunday lunch at the Candlelight today - highly recommended. Wonderful time had by all thank you. - The Vigars Family - Bristol

It was an amazing experience, lovely place. Flossy Brook had a wow factor never seen before. The pool was lovely, but the highlight was the sheep running out in the morning. Can't wait to come back next year. - Zewin - London
