Lovely welcoming cottage, well equipped and clean. The pool was the main attraction and we all loved it. The pub is a 10 minute walk away - we had a good meal there and the staff were very friendly. About 30 minute walk to Taunton across the fields or a bit longer walking along the road. Only downside of the property was traffic noise from the motoRead morerway - not really an issue for a winter break but would be more noticeable if outside in the summer. Hide

We really enjoyed our holiday at Kibbear. There is so much to do within easy driving distances. We loved having the swimming pool and the playground onsite. The swimming pool is beautifully clean and warm! There was lots of information provided about places to go, days out and places to eat. We will definitely be back!!
