Tammy - Feb 2024
Amazing place to stay supreme quality accommodation with perfect little touches to enhance your stay. The welcome hamper with local produce such a lovely surprise on arrival.
Sally - Feb 2024
Excellent holiday, beautiful lodge and setting. Great to have option of 4 double bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Only slight thing no wardrobe or any hanging space in one of the bedrooms but this is a minor thing. Would definitely recommend and return.
Verified Guest - Jan 2024
As I said in the last lot of comments the accommodation was beautiful but some of the things are a bit tired and could do with replacing
Verified Guest - Jan 2024
Stayed at millers rest, only negative kitchen could be better equipped, visited the levels kitchen, food was average, made to feel like we were invisible, used the spa for treatments, great service, so all in all great place staff at the levels should be reminded they are working in hospitality
Lisa - Jan 2024
We had a wonderful time and will be returning! Great location and accommodation was excellent.
Jayne - Jan 2024

Lovely short break great accommodation in the middle of lovely countryside.
Verified Guest - Dec 2023
Me, my husband and our 6 children spent Christmas 2023 here at the lodge and omg is was amazing. The lodge is beautiful and so big which was brilliant for us as we had so much space. The layout was so cosy too. Everything was super clean. We had 8 robes also and soo many towels which was brilliant ? The hot tub was lovely, private and spacious. They also left us a hamper of bread milk butter cheese cake and processo which was perfect after a long drive from London. Thank you so so much. We would love to return again in the future. Also the Christmas tree in the lodge was absolutely brilliant, made that week even more special
Victoria - Dec 2023
Oak Lodge had everything we needed for a perfect Christmas get away. Every detail was thought of including a bright and welcoming Christmas tree. Very spacious for a family of five with plenty of room to socialise and rest.The hot tub was a very cosy bubbly delight.Id like to try the spa and restaurant on another occasion outside of the Christmas holiday period as understandably everything was closed.A wonderful country get away I would definitely recommend.
Samantha - Dec 2023
Great accommodation with hot tub for a family holiday. Good cafe onsite. Approximately 25 minutes to the beach.
Christopher - Dec 2023
Very comfy lodge with everything you could want
Angela - Dec 2023
Wonderful stay
Verified Guest - Nov 2023
We recently stayed at Hazel View Lodge and it was amazing! I would 100% recommend this lodge and windmill retreat to anyone. From arriving the staff were wonderful and really friendly. The lodge has a space to park 2 cars which is amazing and something I couldnt find prior to booking. The spaces next to the lodge are quite steep but the staff were really friendly and happy to help where they can. We enjoyed the lovely welcome gift and was pleasantly impressed to see how well equipped the lodge is. They have truly thought of everything. The beds were super comfy and the showers were great! We enjoyed the hot tub too and overall had a great experience and hope to come back and visit again some time.
Verified Guest - Nov 2023

Richard - Nov 2023
Everything you could want and need in an accommodation plus a bit more.Clean, comfortable, relaxing and very peaceful
Mandi - Nov 2023
We had an amazing stay at Windmill Retreat. Allwynds was an amazing place to stay - we had different members of the family staying with us and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their stay. The Levels Kitchen is a must for brunch, lunch and a Sunday roast.
Lesley - Nov 2023
First time at Windmill Retreat, a girls break & wow! The love was amazing, sparkly clean & everything you wanted. The welcome pack was a lovely gesture. The hot tub a bonus and then we discovered the onsite cafe, wow, amazing food. We are already planning our return. Fantastic find
Jenny - Nov 2023
The lodge is perfect only thing missing was a sweeping bursh
Jayne - Nov 2023
The Sail Loft was a great place to stay for a week as a family of three (two adults and baby).Not too big, used the cot mattress to block the staircase off in lieu of a stair gate. Had to get a pair of scissors as some were missing (needed for opening babies milk cartons). Very quiet location.
Emma - Nov 2023
Everything about this holiday was excellent. The ease of checking in with friendly helpful staff. The beautiful food in the on-site restaurant. The lodge was so well located with stunning views. It was warm and cosy, very clean, such a wonderful welcome pack including bubbles. So many extras added, like gowns to wear to and from the hot tub. The beds were so comfortable and the overall space in the lodge was so good. The lodge was clean to the highest of standards. We will definitely be returning very soon.
Debra - Nov 2023
Had a fantastic long weekend. The lodge was lovely, clean, tidy & very well equipped. The welcome pack was a lovely touch & gratefully appreciated. Would definitely recommend.
Carol - Nov 2023
Enjoyed our weeks stay here. Upstairs one bed lodge in the loft with open plan living/dining area. Nice big bathroom. Kitchen is well furnished for cooking meals. Lovely welcome pack of milk, bread, butter, cheese and cake provided. Big windows at the front and balcony with views of a farm and countryside beyond. Enjoyed local walks including the Taunton- Bridgewater canal. We didnt use the spa on site.No washing machine or hot tub in our lodge though I gather the other bigger lodges have them. Parking provided for one car.
Antony - Nov 2023

A wonderful bolt hole for ultimate relaxation. The accommodation is of a very high standard and includes everything you need. The welcome treats are an excellent touch (the lemon drizzle was yummy) and the staff are extremely friendly. I came away feeling calm and relaxed. I’ll be back.
Nicola - Jul 2022
2nd time at Windmill Retreat, and was just as great as the first time. Fabulous spa and cafe on site too. Lovely walks locally, peaceful location.
Natalie - Jul 2022
Beautiful lodge in tranquil surroundings, not too far from towns and tourist spots but far enough away to enjoy the quiet of the countryside.
Lucy - Jul 2022
Absolutely loved my stay at windmill retreat, celebrating my hen do here was exactly what I thought it was going to be. The spa on the retreat was lovely relaxing and definitely worth the money. Was peaceful, relaxing And thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Will be coming back again!
Keeley - Jul 2022
Beautiful apartment, very clean and homely, very comfortable beds and very peaceful stay.
Andrea - Jul 2022
Good location for getting around but you do need a car. We didn’t use the spa or the on-site restaurant but understand that both are very good.
Susan - Jun 2022
Excellent lodge with everything you could need for a weekend stay. We especially loved the hot tub. Quiet and peaceful surroundings. We enjoyed the lovely welcome pack and using the excellent kitchen facilities. Would love to stay here again.
Samantha - Jun 2022
Just back from a long weekend, we did pay for a travel cot and high chair which wasn’t in the cottage when we arrived but we went to the spa and they called someone who quickly sorted. Cottage was lovely, lots of space and outdoor space. For anyone who hasn’t done anything like this before remember to pack, toilet rolls, dishwasher tablets, salt, hand wash (I expected them to have some in the kitchen). Maybe a sharp knife they were all blunt and we really struggled to cut anything. Also a very sensitive smoke alarm, unless it was just our cooking :) Check out at 9am was so early when you have 3 families and kids to organise. All in all we had a lovely stay would recommend.
Linda - Jun 2022
We have stayed at Millers Rest since 2018 and have enjoyed our stay , everything very clean and everyone helpful and friendly we have already booked for next year.When you find somewhere that you like keep going back.
Jean - Jun 2022
We stayed here the night before a wedding as the bridal party and the Bride and Groom then stayed at the lodge the night of the wedding. The staff were really helpful and the lodge was lovely. Everything was really clean and modern. There are more than enough towels, robes and crockery provided. It was a nice and easy check-in process, the hot tub, showers and other facilities were lovely. Would highly recommend. Beautiful lodge.
Emily - Jun 2022
Clean, so quiet, beautiful, hot tub fab, the weather was good made the holiday complete. Went for breakfast at the levels kitchen before leaving excellent well worth it. All in all a brilliant place to stay
