10/10 - Everything was fabulous, thank you! Especially the pool. We have been before and we will be booking again! - Nichols 

10/10 - Good property layout, swimming pool and leisure areas. Kitchen is really well equipped. The only improvement we would like to see implemented would be to be able to access the property at 15:00 and the departure time to be put back to 11:00. Many thanks to Helen for the welcome cake and posting back a ring that was left at the property.......we had a wonderful midweek stay! Ideal for local walks. - Wooley 

Response: "We would love to give our guests as much time as possible in our wonderful properties, but regrettably, we are unable to offer alternative check in/check out times due to the time it takes to clean and maintain our holiday houses in preparation for your visit. There is a lot to be done - not just the general cleaning, but also swimming pools, BBQ's, gardens to be checked, and sometimes odd jobs to be done. Even with an experienced team it still takes time to get the house tip-top for your holiday. We are sure you will understand; it's important to us that each and every one of our properties is absolutely perfect for our guests."- Sleeps12

10/10 - We were lucky with the weather so managed to enjoy all the outside facilities. The children enjoyed the trampoline and as a family playing boules was great fun. Brilliant barbecue and outdoor seating. Possibly a few more sunbeds needed. The swimming pool was a great success. All in all it was a fabulous experience. We visited Torre Cider Farm and Blue Anchor Bay. - Rose 

10/10 - Well maintained property. Good facilities in the way of swimming pool and outdoor play and games equipment. Great family holiday which included 4 grandchildren ages 11 months to 7 years who all had a wonderful time making full use of the pool and the swings etc. The house had plenty of cooking equipment, crockery and cutlery. A lovely big table that meant we could all sit down to eat together at meal times. We had a wonderful stay and the children were very sad to leave. Some great National Trust properties nearby. - Wansbury

10/10 - Thoroughly enjoyed the swimming pool which was lovely and warm even during chilly days. Great excitement during table football games. Table tennis, boules and bowling added to the fun.  Ramscombe is a delightful place to stay. Minehead and Taunton were pleasant excursions on our late winter stay. - Lamb

9/10 - Thought kitchen and supplies of cutlery, crockery, glass etc great. We did a 5 mile walk from Dunster. - Hannis

10/10 - The house was perfectly clean, decorated to a good standard and everything you could need was there. We used some of the extras: the Bartender company & Gayla Stewert caterer, both were exceptionally good. - Smith

10/10 - The pool was lovely could have been a bit warmer. Porlock lovely coastal town. - Raymond 

10/10 - Lovely spacious accommodation for 9 adults 6 children. Wonderful time had by all. We can recommend walks in the Quantocks. - Lear 

10/10 - The house was brilliant none of us could fault anything. I asked everyone the same question while we were there and we couldn't come up with any faults or improvements it was perfect. It was very clean, everything was a high speck inside the property, it had a good lay out for a group of people getting together for the weekend. Thank you. Dunster Village was lovely, lots of heritage and good shops for browsing. Watchet Harbour blew the cob webs away, The Star Inn was a great find a good pub which is friendly and had good food. - Cotterill 

10/10 - The house was fantastic. The open space was perfect for our number of 13. The beds were lovely and comfortable. The kids loved the pool and the pool house was lovely and warm. We absolutely recommend having Gayla Stewart in for any catering services you require. We did a special birthday celebration dinner. The food was lovely, Molly our waitress was excellent. We couldn’t have asked the Saturday night to run any better. Thank you so much for making the weekend so special. - Evans 

10/10 - House is very well equipped. We had caterers in on Saturday night and that worked really well. Nice walk to Bishops Lydeard- Palmer 

10/10 - We all felt it was just perfect. We stayed at the house the whole time, too nice to leave it. - Kearn 

10/10 - The property was spotless and facilities first class can’t think of anything to improve the service. Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend. - Ellis 

9/10 - Beautiful house, well equipped, spacious, tidy and clean. - Shortman 

9/10 - The space and facilities, in particular the pool, were brilliant for all ages in our group! Helen and Sue dealt with the couple of problems that arose with efficiency and speed! - Luke 

10/10 - Five star accommodation. Swimming pool was fully used by all our family aged 5 to 70. Water was wonderfully warm - even too warm for one person! Drive up the road for 10 minutes to the car park for Cothelstone Hill. Then 10 minutes walk to the top - wonderful views. 

10/10 - We had a brilliant time. The house was excellent and very well appointed with everything we needed and much we didn’t expect - such as books and toys for the children. The heated pool was loved by all and the young ones enjoyed the trampoline and swings. The family thought the accommodation was excellent - so much so that one daughter wanted to take her bed home, it was so comfortable!!! Well done Ramscombe. - Blow 

10/10 - We were looked after brilliantly by the host and the house was excellent. - Statham 

10/10 - Everything about the property was first class. The water is always very hot, the house is very clean. The pool and the garden, were great for occupying the children. All the staff and contact people were so friendly. The beach in Minehead was very sandy, plus easy to park, and not crowded. Thank you all. - Yonwin 

9/10 - The property was as I hoped it would be. It was well appointed and plenty of space for all. We visited Dunster CastleWatchet and the Steam train. - Palmer 

9/10 - It's great to have good water pressure in the showers, but it's quite difficult to control and some of our group with youngsters were almost blasted away! Not sure if anything can be done? The house and garden were lovely and clean, well presented and when we had a problem with the pool it was sorted out quickly - can't ask for more. Everyone had a great time, as we have before when we've stayed at this property. Hope we can find another one of yours located somewhere else with an extra bedroom as we're outgrowing this one and have visited all the attractions after three visits. Many thanks to Helen for her help and kindness. Diggerland was great for all ages - our 5 year old drove a digger and 12 year old drove a car! - Cottle 

10/10 - Swimming pool was fantastic. Double cutlery and crockery was brilliant and made such a difference. We had a lovely meal cooked by Gayla Stewart and served by Helen. We tried to think of anything that would improve Ramscombe and all we could come up with was a clock in the swimming pool area - and possibly one in the living room area. Oh - and one of us suggested that you put up a sign in the games area saying "If you can't find the balls for the football machine, try tipping it up!". We searched for ages for the balls until our younger daughter (34!) hit upon that idea!! We can recommend days out to Dunster Castle (excellent National Trust). Train to Minehead. Walk round reservoir. - Collington 

9/10 - We can recommend days out to Dunster CastleWillow CentreQuantock Riding School .....fabulous attention to detail for children between 4 and 11. Some details could have added to the ambience I think..... I thought that the campus of the property could have been made more attractive with some plant pots and perhaps a few shrubs especially around the back where trees had been lopped and were just trunks. A tumble dryer would have been helpful with so many children. Shuttlecocks to go with badminton racquets and a net. - Henderson 

10/10 - The pool was a great hit with everyone. The whole experience was delightful with spacious and comfortable accomodation indoors and a variety of activities outside to keep all age groups happy. Easy access to walks on The Quantocks too. We can recommend a day out to Kilve Beach. The children loved exploring the rock pools and spotting fossils. - Seaman 

10/10 - The grandchildren were so happy that they could use the pool whenever they liked. The layout of the accommodation is superb. Then we could have been sure that little ones could not get in without adult supervision. - Henderson 

10/10 - Wow! The whole experience has been perfect. Thank you. - Hussain

10/10 - We stayed at the property for the whole weekend as it was my hen party but what an amazing house it was. It was luxurious and had everything we needed to have a fab weekend. It exceeded my expectations and everybody was taken aback at how wonderful it was. We couldn’t have asked for more from a property and made it a perfect weekend. The property was exceptionally clean and well maintained and had everything we needed for a weekends stay. We had a house full of guests and beauty therapists and still we didn’t feel like we were falling over one another. The pool was a luxury and plenty to keep us entertained outside too. We had beautiful weather which was an added bonus. Will start looking for a bigger property for my 40th Birthday in October now as I loved the property and everything it had to offer. Helen was very welcoming and showed us everything we needed to know and even had fresh milk and a Victoria sponge waiting for us on our arrival. We have rented many holiday let properties over the years and this was by far the best one we have had . Will definitely be back. - Mayo 

10/10 - Loved the swimming pool. Met by excellent staff. Excellent service on booking. All excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Can recommend the horse riding, lunch at Hood Arms Kilve follwed by a walk down to Kilve Beach. - Topazio

10/10 - I enjoyed how enclosed the cottage was outside... you could always see where kids & friends were. The pool room was so nice & hot! Heating in villa was perfect. Loved that you had all sky channels & games to keep everyone entertained. Was a great weekend and will definatly return. - Bonser 

10/10 - It was a family birthday for my mothers 88th so it was family and friends and had everything we needed. It was great to get together. The table tennis and swimming pool were great fun. Everybody had a fabulous time. Facilities were brilliant. Second time we have used sleeps12 and will definantly use again. - Hathaway

10/10 - We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, the children used the pooltable tennis and played boules. Apart from a short walk on the Quantocks we couldn't drag our grandchildren away from the pool. - Amor Family 

10/10 - This has been by far the best large house that we have hired. Personally we have no comment that could improve the house at this time. We recommend a day out to the following: West Somerset Railway and Haynes Motor Museum (surprisingly excellent for all the family and cafe was good too!) I would also like to say we appreciated you going the extra mile following a difficult journey (M5 being closed all day). - Cross Family

10/10 - We used one of the private caterers from your list which worked really well - Flora Bartlett. The property is set up amazingly well and had everything we needed. Thanks so much! - Coles Family

9/10 - Shame you couldn't access the pool from inside the house. Not a problem we had a really lovely time. - Hill Group

10/10 - Ramscombe was ideal for our group - 8 adults and 5 children ranging from 9 years to 5 months. The pool was very well used and 2 of the grandchildren in particular made huge progress with their swimming over the weekend. Table tennis went down well too and we enjoyed a great BBQ on Saturday evening. We were really fortunate with the weather - dry and even sunny most of the time. We enjoyed a lovely walk on the Quantocks from Crowcombe. Some of us travelled on the Somerset Steam Railway to Minehead starting from Bishops Lydeard. Tears from grandchildren when we had to leave Monday, they had all enjoyed it so much. Holiday was to celebrate my husbands 70th Birthday and we have many special memories to look back on. - Baker Family

10/10 - We enjoyed walks on the Quantocks and visited Dunster. One of our party was 96 and mobility impared. It would have been useful to have disabled support bars in one of the downstairs bedroom showers. - Abel Family 

9/10 - We chose Ramscombe to celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary with all our family. Our ages ranged from 2 - 73 years. Everyone had a great weekend and we stayed on site all the time.

The place is absolutely amazing, great facilities, the pool being the highlight of our stay.
