Converted from the original cider barn and approached through attractive grounds it stands alongside the owners' 16th century thatched farmhouse. The cottage is bright and welcoming offering superb views from the patio area. Located only 1 mile from the Devon/Somerset border and 5 minutes from J25 of M5 it is conveniently accessible to Exmoor, Dartmoor, North & South coasts, National Trust properties and theme parks. Walkers can enjoy opportunities to explore the area on foot with footpaths and lanes leading from the cottage linking into nearby farmland, forests & wildlife reserves. Idyllically situated yet aptly described by one visitor as being 'in the middle of everywhere' it provides a restful haven to return to after a day out.

The kitchen is well equipped with a ceramic hob and double oven, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, washer/dryer and DAB radio.

Very comfortable, cosy, beautifully decorated. Well equipped kitchen. Private patio and garden with wonderful views. Remote and very peaceful - a car will be needed as nothing is in easy walking distance except for country footpaths; for us the remoteness was part of the charm. Lots of storage space in the bedrooms, which was great but unusual in aRead more holiday let. Very friendly hosts who live in the adjoining farmhouse. Didn't want to come home! Hide

A lovely holiday cottage with large, comfortable rooms and spotlessly clean. Plenty of kitchen equipment if wanting to cook and very comfortable in all respects. Beautiful location with great views across the fields.

The Cider House is a wonderful place to stay. A comfortable and spacious barn conversion with stunning views from the patio. The whole place is well looked after. It is only a short drive to Wellington for the supermarkets, it is situated within the Blackdown Hills AONB so there are plenty of walks.

We had a lovely holiday at the Cider House feeling at home from the moment we walked through the door. Wonderful views, yet easily accessible to all local towns inland and coastal. We were made to feel extremely welcome by the kind owners and their dear dog. Good choice of pubs in short driving distance. We all slept so well in this lovely homely cRead moreottage. Hide

A wonderful cottage , in a great location , with wonderful views . Very friendly and helpful hosts . Very well placed for all the attractions , also within easy reach of the North and South coasts. A very rural location ( lots of sheep , ducks and geese ) but yet literally only a few minutes from the M5 , Wellington and Taunton.
