Secluded rural property situated within its own five-acres of private woodland, making it a wonderful space for a relaxing break away from the stresses of daily life.

This property enjoys a tranquil rural location in the mid-Somerset countryside, within walking distance of a welcoming pub. There are miles of walks to be enjoyed direct from the property’s front door, however, guests may prefer to explore the nearby Blackdown Hills, or perhaps enjoy a day hiking on Exmoor which is around twenty miles away. For a change of scene, the county town of Taunton is just six miles away, whilst the seaside towns of the Dorset and Devon coasts are within a forty-five-minute drive, including Beer, Seaton, Lyme Regis, and Charmouth.

This wonderfully secluded property makes a fantastic location for a peaceful break, and guests will easily be able to make themselves feel at home here. The first of the property’s two lounges is a lovely cosy space with a beamed ceiling and warming wood burner, as well as a TV/DVD. The second lounge, meanwhile, is a light-filled room with a hi-fi and comfortable seating making it a great space for cosying up with a good book and a pot of tea. The kitchen/diner has a large dining table seating six, and is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher, whilst the washing machine is kept in a separate utility room. There is also a convenient shower room on the ground floor, with a shower and WC, whilst the main bathroom with a bath, handheld shower, and WC is locate on the first floor, along with the bedrooms. Two of these bedrooms are double rooms, whilst the third is a twin room. Outside, there is a large private garden, which is mainly set to lawn, with an additional patioed seating area. Guests should be aware that there is an enclosed ornamental pond in the garden, so children will need supervising around this. Beyond the garden, the property benefits from five acres of private woodlands which guests are free to explore, which gives access to a further seven acres of wild woodland. There is ample off-road parking available.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Perfect location for visiting either North Somerset coast or south Devon/Dorset Coast. Cottage welcome pack much appreciated. Cottage and grounds lovely although the weather was not conducive to sitting out and appreciating. Exit of driveway a little scary as bends in both directions.

AFTER we paid for the property, we received a long list of instructions including to lockup our dog downstairs in a small space near the front door at night, warned that we will be "monitored" for not picking up after our dog, stating they are cheaper than a dog kennel! We would have happily gone elsewhere if we had this information prior to makingRead more the booking. The wifi is terribly slow. Otherwise its a lovely cottage well placed to explore Exmoor, Dartmoor and North Devon. Hide

Mount Pleasant is a lovely cottage, we had an enjoyable stay and our dog loved the woodlands behind the cottage and my adult daughter loved the tree swing! We appreciated the snug in evenings when it got a bit chilly, and a real treat to use the log burner, made us feel very cosy. The kitchen was so well equipped, I was very impressed, the fridge fRead morereezer was GREAT ! A quiet rural place to stay to get away from it all and chillax. Hide

Excellent home and garden. Entrance/exit to road very dangerous because of the busy traffic. Therefore impossible to walk safely along the road to the pub or elsewhere.

A really nice secluded relaxing place to be in beautiful surroundings.

Beautiful place, well-equipped kitchen, well located but after we paid we received additional information which alerted that not all was to be a dream holiday. Not enough water for two consecutive showers so use of the bathroom had to be staggered throughout the day. Bottom bathroom no water pressure. Heating was turned off when we arrived. Took aRead more day to warm up. Cleanliness is a real problem. We spent first day cleaning whole house. Broken glass and accumulated dirt under everything Hide

A last minute break and we were overjoyed with Mount Pleasant. The cottage and surroundings are breathtaking. A great place to relax and unwind with a real abundance of wildlife. It was a joy to snuggle up in the sitting room once the log burner was lit. Apart from a food shop and a day walking, we were more than happy to stay at the property and wRead morehile away the days.
