8/10 - Very friendly welcome. The games room and pool / spa area was great fun. Great kitchen, well equipped for a large group. Lovely bedrooms, bathroom and showers. Excellent facilities for waste and recycling. Could do with a shower by the pool area. We all had a great time thank you. - Blake - August 2021

10/10 - Sean was an excellent host made us very wellcome on arrival with a welcome package. We would highly recomend Walnut Arbour it has everything for the self catering holiday. Thankyou. - Lewry - August 2021

10/10 - This house was fantastic,the owner has literally thought of everything possible you need home from home,would 100% stay here again. - Haden - June 2021.

10/10 - The pool, games room and hot tub were particular favourites. The patio was lovely with plenty of space and seats. The only slight problem was that the long table was always in the sun and maybe a few more parasols would help. But that was a very slight problem and was only due to the extremely sunny weather. The owner was lovely and very helpful. All in all no complaints. We had a fabulous time. - Billington - May 2021

9/10 - All the simple little extras were included which made life easier right down to dish washer tablets, cling film and foil - everything you needed was there. - Brown - May 2021

10/10 - The host was very helpful nothing was to much trouble. Very friendly. The house is lovely lots to do within the house so we didn't feel the need to leave and go out anywhere. Would definitely stay again. - Patel - May 2021

9/10 - We can recommend kayaking at Somerset Boat Hire. - Holt - May 2021

10/10 - We didn’t leave the cottage - it was so fabulous! We felt incredibly lucky to have found this cottage for a family weekend to celebrate my husbands 50th. And at such a great price. Thank you so much for what was a fantastic and memorable weekend! - Whelan - April 2021

10/10 - We enjoyed staying at this property, very well organised, everything we needed, very clean, well equipped and the owner Sean was only a phone call away with any issues we had resolving them quickly! - Thorne - December 2020

10/10 - Swimming pool was the most outstanding feature and well used by us. Temperature of pool was perfect and the room was warm too. Lots of space in house and games room. Everything was spotlessly clean when we arrived. The only improvement I can think of, and it’s only a minor thing, is a bigger sign saying Walnut Arbour as sat nav only takes you to area. We can recommend a day out to Willow and Wetlands centre close by. 5 minute drive. - Slatter - December 2020

10/10 - Really nice property, warm & cosy, swimming pool and steam room great. - Bailey - December 2020

10/10 - Enjoyed everything. - Smith - December 2020

10/10 - The Pool, Sauna, Steam Room, Hot Tub and Log Burner were all top notch! Sean was on hand and friendly and helpful - great host and great house! It’s Covid so we did some local walks - there is a nice pub 30 mins drive away - The Lord Poulet Arms. - Lewis - October 2020

9/10 - Excellent stay, beautiful place and facilities, only thing I would recommend is clearer instructions for the sauna, not a big problem but we couldn’t figure it out. Lovely landlord and everything very clean and accommodating. - Brown - October 2020

10/10 - The house was so clean and well equipped. Very comfortable and spacious so perfect for a mixed aged family gathering. - Cummins - September 2020

9/10 - The hot tub and pool were brilliant and the property was very well equipped inside and out. We throughly enjoyed our stay there. - Campling - August 2020

8/10 - The owner Sean was exceptional. He ensured we had a comfortable arrival and took in food and drink deliveries for us. When we were having trouble lighting the BBQ on Saturday afternoon he turned up with a brand new one in less than an hour. Check out was easy and relaxed with him. First class in every way. The house itself has great facilities, but we were hoping for more garden space. Finally, received Deposit return on day of checkout!! Lovely walks directly opposite the property and Taunton very nice with parks, historic buildings etc. - Head - July 2020

10/10 - Definately recommend this property, it was so clean and great. We really enjoyed socialising in the pool and hot tub. - Mohammed - March 2020

8/10 - Weaver - March 2020

9/10 - We did go out and went to the coast. Day one was to Dunster, Minehead, Blue Anchor and Watchet as it was January not everything was open but a wonderful coastline. Day two was to Lyme Regis, Beer and Branscombe again a great day visiting lovely coastal villages. The pool and hot tub were both really good no everyone enjoyed themselves. To provide bath robes is also a great touch. 
These are really small points but without these it would have been a 10. We run short of dishwasher tablets by the Sunday but owner did come over to refill and also give us more tea towels as only 2 were left. The tea towels were not great and need replacing as does the sponge we also had only 2 small J cloths a week with 10 people need more. Lamp in bedroom one had a broken shade a large hole and lamp in bedroom 3 did not work. Porch outside light did not work. DVD does not work owner tried to get it going but not successful. Although we did bring DVD with us it was not a great issue
. - Flynn - January 2020

10/10 - Everything was amazing!! Only thing, just as we were staying in the middle of January, it wasn't very clear how/if we could turn the temperature up in the pool as it got a bit chilly. But other than that it was the perfect break away, we wish we had booked a week instead of just the weekend! We hope to book again next year!! - Winslade - January 2020

10/10 - Facilities were amazing there was everything you needed. The house was very clean and cosy. - Pearce - January 2020

8/10 - As it was Christmas week would have appreciated more effort with the decorations - particularly the outside courtyard area which was lovely but could have done with lots of sparkly lights. I fridge-freezer probably not enough for the number of people during Christmas. Oven runs very hot...... Very comfortable beds and bed linen but the two en-suites are very small, particularly bedroom 2. - Brooks - December 2019

10/10 - My family had a wonderful stay at this beautiful, spacious cozy house . There was everything you needed for a relaxing break away. The house was very clean and all the spa falicilities that we used there were amazing. We all enjoyed the lovely pool and bubbling hot tub. Highly recomend. - Delecia - November 2019

9/10 - The pool and hot tub went down a treat unfortunately the sauna wasn't working till our last day. We visited lock and code escape rooms. Flipout Somerset. And a bit further afield Dunster Castle. - Rimmer - November 2019

10/10 - We stayed in and made the most of the facilities and the beautiful accommodation. - Culver - November 2019

10/10 - Lovely property great facilities. May be just one more shower but we managed preferably. We visited Clarks Village. - Parish - November 2019

10/10 - Beautiful house with wonderful facilities. Grandchildren loved spending time in the swimming pool. - Davis - October 2019

10/10 - It was perfect. Property had everything you could wish for and more. It catered for everyone's needs young and old. There were 11 of us staying and each one of us would definitely book and stay here again. - Bastock - October 2019

10/10 - Mills - October 2019

10/10 - House was amazing with everything anyone could possibly need. Sean was lovely and extra accommodating. Would recommend to anyone :)!! We went canoeing with Somerset Adventures, absolutely brilliant! - Richards - September 2019

10/10 - We can recommend a day out to Weymouth. - Griffiths - September 2019

9/10 - Loved the pool, spa & games room. - Koedyk - September 2019

10/10 - Thoroughly enjoyed our family holiday at Walnut Arbour. Children particularly enjoyed the swimming pool and games room. Very spacious with room for us all to eat together, both inside and out, but big enough to enable us to have our own space. Good to know that Sean, the owner, was on hand if any problems occurred. Willows and Wetlands - excellent free day out. Very interesting, lovely cafe, friendly staff and great for all ages. - Ewles - August 2019

8/10 - We visited Glastonbury Tor and went walking on Exmoor. We particularly enjoyed the spa, pool, hot tub and comfortable beds and children's toys. We felt that the garden area could do with some attention. - Reber - August 2019

9/10 - My family enjoyed their stay, there was everything we needed in the house. The owner was very helpful. - Marsden - August 2019

9/10 - We enjoyed everything the facilities were brilliant. Could do with a few bigger pots for when cooking for 14 but that’s it!! The place is lovely and was spotless on our arrival. The only downside is check in times - if you compare against any hotels etc 4pm is really late and in effect you’re losing a day especially when check out is 10am. - Croly - July 2019

9/10 - There was something for the whole family ages 1 1/2 to 62. Shame the garden wasn’t bigger do we could play ball games. - Edginton - July 2019

10/10 - Loved the pool, hot tub, steam room, sauna and games room. - Bird - June 2019

10/10 - Was a wonderful house with everything we could possible want for our 4 night stay, I'd highly recommend Walnut Arbour to anyone. - Knight - June 2019

9/10 - The comfort and amenities provided were exceptional. Unsure as to how local recommends for eating out and activities are decided upon but lots more could be included with ratings from Tripadvisor possibly?? - Robertson - June 2019

10/10 - We particularly enjoyed the swimming pool and the enclosed games area which was used by children and adults alike. A day out in Wells to see the Cathedral and visit the Bishop's Palace and gardens. Wookey Hole and The Fleet Air Arm Museum are all good days out. - Alton - May 2019

9/10 - Amazing Hen Weekend beautiful house! - Morgan - May 2019

8/10 - We loved the pool and hot tub amenities and the playground was also handy for the kids. There isn't anything you can do to change this but it would have been a bit better had the play / open areas been a bit better connected. At times it felt the group could be isolated if separated into the different spaces. More communal areas together would have been great. Thanks for a lovely stay! - Giannecchini - May 2019

9/10 - Very good place for mixed age group as we were from 18 months to 70 years old. - Hillier - May 2019

10/10 - It was perfect. We were only there for a weekend of relaxing, although we did go for a nice walk to the Willows and Wetlands centre. - Wenn - April 2019

10/10 - On behalf of all our group... Bethany showed us round. Thanks for the Easter hamper!! Property met all expectations. Kids particularly enjoyed pool and games room. Lovely environment, good size and well maintained. One query - over our 3 day stay the water level in hot tub fell significantly. Not sure if this is leak ?? or natural evaporation?? Willow centre is good for half day visit. - Maisey - April 2019

10/10 - Manning - March 2019

10/10 - Absolutely wonderful house with all that was needed for a great weekend. Sean made arrival and minor hiccups really easy to manage. We can recommend Ling Clay Pigeon Shooting. - Drever - March 2019

9/10 - Perfect house for relaxing. - Murray - February 2019

10/10 - The house was perfect for all ages 7 years - 75. Would certainly hire it again if the occasion arises. Plenty to keep us occupied. - Johnston - February 2019

8/10 - Very comfortable accommodation and the owners were very helpful when contacted. Had a nice greeting when we arrived at the property. - Mayo - January 2019

10/10 - Hot tub was lovely in spite of the cold weather! A very relaxing week. Only one shaver socket in the house could be an inconvenience if the house was full. We can recommend walking on the Somerset levels & visit to the Somerset Cider Brandy company. Willows and wetlands centre was very interesting. - Duff - November 2018

10/10 - Loved the pool and games room that could accommodate everybody. Visited Willow and Wetland. - Giles - October 2018

10/10 - Enjoyed all of the facilities as it was a real treat to swim, sauna, hot tub. All beds were very comfortable. Just wish we all could have stayed longer as didn't want to go home. Sean owner very helpful. - Rose-Pearce - September 2018

9/10 - Facilities were excellent. - Kanzaria - September 2018

9/10 - Positive = The property was very well equipped and comfortable. Warm welcome. 
Negative = The sauna did not work and the wifi was very slow.
- Blakeman - September 2018

Response: The sauna at Walnut Arbour is on a 15 minute timer for safety so it turns itself off after 15 mins. It does need setting twice initially to get it up to temperature. - Sleeps12

9/10 - Walnut Arbour was very good for young children, pool and toys, also for their parents who spent rather a lot of time in the games room or with Prosecco in the hot tub (perhaps not so enjoyable for the grandparents who spent rather a lot of time in the kitchen!). It was very peaceful with lots to do indoors in the rather cool weather, very restful. Willows & Wetlands  Centre, a short walk along the road. - Alexander - September 2018

10/10 - The house was exactly as described. The pool games room and hot tub were very popular with all the family. Beds very comfortable House was well cleaned for our arrival. Also Sean greeted us and explained everything which was nice. We can recommend days out to Glastonbury for the adults. Wookey Hole and Puxton Park for the family. - Ottewell - August 2018

10/10 - Swimming pool, hot tub and steam room was awesome. There was something for everyone. Place was very clean. Young adults were well entertained with Sky and games room. Bedrooms were amazing and much better than we imagined. Kitchen was well equipped and nice to have all 12 of us sitting down at a table that fit us all. The beds and sofas were very comfortable. Small finishing touches with log fire to make the stay with a more countryside feel. People really nice around the area. Rain did not stop us using the hot tub as it was under a gazebo. The owners have definitely made the cottage as homely as possible. Would definitely recommend this place. - Panchani - August 2018

9/10 - We loved having the games room, pool, sauna and hot tub facilities. It kept the whole family entertained. 
Would be useful to have had more tourist info in a booklet on site to cover suggested places to visit and eat. Wookey Hole. Great for all round family day out. Lots to entertain children particularly 3 to 12 years old.

Response: When staying at a sleeps12.com property you can view our Things To Do tab under each property, here you will find Places To Eat, Activities, Days Out, Shops etc, including distances from the property. - Sleeps12

9/10 - A totally excellent stay. The only negative were the number of flies trapped in the house which needs something installed to deal with particularly in the kitchen. We can recommend days out to Glastonbury Tor, Clark’s Village. Wookey Hole. - Hale - July 2018

10/10 - We had a wonderful family holiday which we will remember for a long time. We were very comfortable and felt very much at home, the house felt like a family home which for us was important. - Humphreys - July 2018

8/10 - We stayed in the property most days but did visit Clark's Village in Street, which was very nice! We absolutely loved the place and had a great time. Only suggestions would be a larger table and bigger brolly outside the kitchen area because everyone wanted to sit together here and there was very little sun shade. The only 'negatives' were there was nothing to play music on, there was a dock but we couldn't get it to work, and there was only one kitchen cloth, scourer and black bag. The bins outside were still full from the last visitors so we had to buy bags to store our waste in. - Parker - June 2018

10/10 - No comments or improvements - it was exactly what we wanted and we had a fantastic time. - Weatherburn - June 2018
