A well equipped cottage, in a golf location. The village shop and pub were close at hand. Also a short drive was needed to reach the beach.

The cottage has such a lovely feel about it. It is well equipped and the little thoughtful touches add to it. It is ideal for a relaxing holiday and the local shop is just a short walk. Kilve beach is very near. Very friendly and thoughtful hosts.

We have been coming back to this cottage for 4 years. Friendly owners, they are very helpful.Dog friendly with fenced in garden. We usually vacation there in May but due to Corona virus we went in September time, took plenty of warm clothes in case it was cold. Needn't have bothered the place was warm day and night. Already booked for next year.

Comfortable roomy cottage on the northern edge of the Quantock Hills ideally situated for walkers. The friendly local shop is a couple of minutes walk away where most essentials can be purchased including newspapers. Only one mile from the beach at Kilve with wide views across the Bristol channel to Wales. For birdwatchers the reserve at Stert at tRead morehe mouth of the river Parrett is worth a visit and is not far away. The ancient port of Watchet is close by and also NT Dunster Castle. Hide

The owners of this property were very nice, friendly and helpful. The property is in a good location for walks and close to a good pub. Unfortunately the property was in need of a good clean and repaint.
