Owners are fantastic and friendly. Second time we've been and will most definitely be returning. Mrs Proctor (December 2018)
The cottage is spotless and great value for money. This is our second weekend break here and would book again if we needed to be in the area. Mrs Weaver (October 2018)
Lovely to have milk, tea coffee & biscuits supplied-very welcome on arrival. Good location for days out in the area. Have already recommended to relatives for future family gatherings. Mrs Browne (August 2018)
Extremely comfortable and very clean Mr Brackley (August 2018)
Ideal location to get away from hussle and bussle. Mr Chamberlain (August 2018)
Loads of space for the whole family, and we enjoyed having our meals on the patio which is very well furnished too. We recommend Poppy Lodge to any family in search of a quiet location. The next-door chickens are a bonus attraction for young - and less young - children ! Mrs Castel (July 2018)
Shelves needed inside wardrobes. Box of windscreen wipers found under settee in living room. We believe the cottage is too small for six adults, especially the twin bedrooms. We would strongly recommend that owners should live in their rental accommodation for at least a couple of days and would then notice the little things missing, e.g. hooks. Ms Jahre (June 2018)
Chickens alongside were very 'watchable' , It was on a sloping plot with quite steep steps to the front door, but also a ramp to the side door. The lounge area was spacious but there was not a lot of room in the bedrooms so would be difficult for someone with mobility difficulties. We loved the atmosphere in the Lodge and the way it was furnished was lovely. It was very well equipped. We found lovely tea rooms in Sherborne and also Sherborne Castle is worth a visit. Wincanton is not far away and The Wagtail next to the Travelodge there offered good meals at ridiculously low prices. The Haynes Motor Museum is a short distance away and also worth a visit. We had a lovely week and thank the owners for letting us stay in their beautifully clean and well maintained lodge. It is worth noting that the directions to Poppy Lodge are in need of updating as the garage is no longer there. Mrs Brook (May 2018)
We enjoyed our weekend Mrs Matthew (December 2017)
excellent pub nearby, which served superb food , and it was friendly Mr. Tiller (April 2017)
very nice owners of poppy lodge, and very helpful if needed. Mrs Small from Atherstone (October 2016)
Great holiday lodge. Bedrooms were nicely set up with lovely decor - all wardrobes were very spacious (but could do with some extra coat hangers & additional storage solutions such as shelves or drawers). Both bathrooms were superb with exceptional power showers & lots of hot water - main bathroom was very, very spacious. Dining table was very large with comfortable chairs, perfect for our family meals. Plenty of crockery & cutlery in the kitchen including plastic cups for the children. Saucepans weren't great, could do with an improved upgrade on these. Sofas were very comfortable, seated 4 adults no problem (not sure where an additional 2 adults would have sat though, our party was 4 adults & 2 children). 2 good flat screen TVs, 1 in the lounge area & 1 in the main bedroom, both attached to the wall - which was much appreciated as they were out of reach of the children. We would have appreciated the TV in the lounge area being larger, it would have made our film viewing in the evening much more enjoyable. Lovely garden & patio area with great views over the field behind us - this would benefit from a gate at the side of the lodge for peace of mind for any guests with children or dogs. Added highlight for us & our children was being right next to the chicken run, we got to watch them every morning after breakfast. The owners were all very friendly & had left some provisions at the lodge for when we arrived, which was a much appreciated welcome. Poppy Lodge is in a great location, this is a beautiful area & we had some great days out. Mrs Neal from Wallingford (October 2016)
Great holiday lodge. ... Mrs Neal (October 2016)
Overall the cottage was very well equipped, clean, and modern. Mr Knott from Hassocks (June 2016)
This is a lovely property in an ideal location for touring with lots of pet friendly places to visit in the area. I would highly recommend although you do need to book early. This property is popular and after spending a week here I can understand why. Mrs Kavanagh from Mold (April 2016)
Superb accommodation in a beautiful setting. Friendly and helpful owners on hand if you need them but not at all intrusive. The location is ideal for sightseeing and we visited the Muchelnley Abbey, Montacute House, Sherbourne castle and gardens, Glastonbury Abbey and Stonehenge. Our dog was on holiday with us and we were able to take him to all of these places which allowed dogs access to the grounds so we all enjoyed our holiday. My husband enjoyed the Haynes Motor museum and the Fleet Air Museum which is a short journey away. Poppy Lodge was the perfect place to return to each day. It is clean, warm and very comfortable. For provisions there is a Sainsburys supermarket in nearby Sherborne or Morrisons and Lidl in Wincanton. If you don't want to bother to cook there is a very nice hotel a short walk from the lodge serving delicious food. Susan K (April 2016)
Fantastic find. Excellent, clean accommodation with everything you could need. Comfortable first class furnishings. Loved the chickens and enjoyed seeing the 'girls' every day. Close to the lovely town of Sherborne, not far to Haynes Motor Museum and close to supermarkets etc. Weymouth about 1 hour away. Lovely Easter break and the owners even left us a chocolate chicken treat. heatherhr1 (April 2016)
We had a very relaxing time at Poppy Lodge. The lodge was lovely and clean and like new. We will definitely go back again next year. Mr Smith from Salisbury (November 2015)

A lovely central place for sightseeing. A nice quiet cottage. The cottage was lovely and clean and plenty of crockery and cutlery in the kitchen. Mrs Nichols from Oldham (July 2015)
Fantastic accommodation, a home from home. Everything was perfect. Would have no hesitation in recommending this holiday property to anyone. Like many others in the Visitors Book, we are going back again next year. Mr Wilkins from South Shields (May 2015)
Fantastic accommodation. Perfect in every way. Relaxing environment and yet so handy for tourist attractions in Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire. We visited Minehead on the north coast and Poole and Weymouth on the south. The lodge has every convenience for a superb holiday and the quality and cleanliness is second to none. We are going back for another holiday next year. Scenic2012 (May 2015)
Excellent quiet convenient location. Practical and functional dwelling suitable for families. Friendly hosts who would greet us. Special seasonal touches with Christmas decorations. Extra parking space for day visitors. Mr Foote from Earlville (January 2015)

Lovely cottage in a very beautiful setting. The owners were very welcoming and accommodating. The surrounding area and village is absolutely breathtaking. Mrs Wiley (May 2014)

We very much enjoyed our stay, and would be happy to recommend it to anyone. Mr Penney from Basingstoke (September 2013)
A lovely clean, spacious and peaceful holiday home with everything we could need during our stay. The owners were friendly and helpful. Easy access to explore the beautiful Somerset and Dorset. Our best holiday accommodation yet! Mrs Jakins from Bedford (August 2013)
A very warm welcome including milk, eggs, squash, tea and coffee all put out for us when we arrived. The owners of the property were very nice and were always on site if any help or information was needed. We are hoping to go back again next year. Mrs Harding from Caerphilly (July 2013)
There are no negatives for this home. Lovely decorated, it got everthing you need for a nice family stay, lots of privacy, centraly located, warm, quiet, very friendly owners. Just great for a short or long stay. We recommend this home for any family looking for a nice vacation in a central location to visited the landmarks and cities in SouthWest England. Family Gelling (July 2013)
A great place to stay, the accomodation had everything needed and the location was great for travelling around dorset and sommerset. With a very nice pub and little shop practically next door what more could you need. A FlipKey verified reviewer (June 2013)
Wonderful accommodation in a peaceful village. Ideal for touring Somerset and the South West. Mrs Granger from Leeds (February 2013)
Poppy Lodge was a fantastic place to stay and we had a fantastic new years eve dinner party there. Miss Hampshire from London (December 2012)
Very nice holiday home set in a really lovely village owners very helpful. We would recommend to our friends and hope to go back in the future. Lots to do and see in the area. The property is nice and warm and well furnished. We go on a lot of cottage holidays and this chalet is one of the best. Mr Nightingale from Burntwood (October 2012)
I liked the decor, the area was really beautiful with plenty of hills for running up. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. The landlords that we spoke to and encountered were very nice people. I will be back in the future. Mr Burton from Darlington (September 2012)
The lodge was well-equipped and in a good location - lovely friendly little village with good access to loads of interesting places. Ms Deller from Tunbridge Wells (August 2012)
