Amazing weekend in a beautiful cottage. Your attention to detail is superb. Feel really relaxed and recharged to continue my caring journey. Thank you so much.
Michael & Caroline from Glasgow
Thanks After Umbrage for the warm welcome, the beautiful cottage and the opportunity to get away together.
Curtis Family from Hereford
Comfy, cosy cottage. We both feel very relaxed after a few days here in Somerset and a real pleasure to return to Kingham Cottage every evening. Easy drive to Wells, Bath, Somerset – not forgetting Glastonbury. Five days filled with happy memories.
The Dale Family
We’ve had a wonderful weekend. Just a shame it had to end so soon. I think a nice, relaxing weekend with beautiful country walks was just what us and the girls needed. Thanks again Tara for being so helpful and hospitable.
Clements Family
Thank you so very much for giving us this opportunity. We have had a magical time. The cottage is beautiful and the location is something else. We would love to return some day. Much love.

A wonderful stay in a fabulous cottage. Thank you all at After Umbrage - it means a lot that others care.
Donna & Keith from Hertfordshire
This time away has given me a little happiness in the darkest of times. A time for me to come first. I cannot express enough how grateful I am – thank you. The last few months have been the worse I have ever had. I don’t feel things will ever get better, but this stay in the stunning cottage was a break from everything. The first bath I’ve had without having to rush or keep an ear out. Thank you all so much. A real opportunity to make good memories and hopefully heal bad ones. You are all real earth angels – thank you.
