Within a captivating, verdant setting at the foot of the Quantock Hills, just a ten minute walk from the beach, approached through a private entrance shared with the owner's adjoining property, a warm welcome awaits but privacy is assured. This peaceful cottage is interrupted only by the strains of birdsong.   The village has a Pub, Post Office and general store just a minute's walk away. It also has a wonderful rock beach with a tea room, located less than a miles walk away, and is a haven for rock poolers, anglers and fossil finders. The nearby larger village of Williton, 5 miles away, has a range of stores, banks, a restaurant and several pubs. The property has a peaceful rural outlook, providing an ideal centre for walkers, with the spectacular Quantock Hills, the first designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England, with the South West Path and Coleridge Way also on the doorstep. It provides the perfect base for experiencing the delights of West Somerset; its scenic coast, rural villages, medieval Dunster, historic Nether Stowey, the steam railway and the seaside town of Minehead (gateway to Exmoor), with Clarks Village, Wells, Cheddar Gorge and the county town of Taunton a little further afield.

The sofa does need to be changed, it was so uncomfortable. Also please upgrade the toilet its an accident waiting to happen. The kitchen was lovely. The gardens needs to be presented a lot better it could be a lovely space but it's not.

Lovely cottage and marvellous hosts. Made to feel welcome immediately on arrival. Pretty location , only noise was birdsong ! Village pub served excellent food and there was also a useful shop. Stairs in the cottage not ideal for older guests. All in all , we had a wonderful and peaceful holiday.

We had a lovely time at the Granary, very spacious and a well equipped kitchen, in a great position to explore the area and we were lucky enough to have gorgeous weather throughout the week. Would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage.

The location of the cottage is lovely, and it's great to have some outside space and a dedicated parking spot. The kitchen was large and well-equipped. The living area and bedroom were pleasant. The bathroom was adequate (shower rather weak). Overall a good base from which to explore the Quantocks and north Somerset coast.
