This modern style chalet bungalow is set on a hillside with views over the garden within a charming setting. The perfect retreat for relaxing and exploring majestic Exmoor, the Somerset coast and beyond.

5 minutes walk takes you to Blue Anchor Bay, an ideal spot full of wildlife, large 2 mile beach, promenade, 2 pubs with restaurants and lovely gardens, a hotel, cafés, large indoor heated swimming pool and historic steam railway station, all of which are open all year round. A shop with newsagent and off-licence is seasonal. Excellent for walkers and dog owners, with coastal and countryside walks from the property and the Quantock Hills and Brendon Hills being within a short drive. Exmoor National Park is 2 miles away and is the second designated International Dark Sky Reserve in the world. Dunster, a picturesque medieval village with its magnificent castle, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants and extensive wild wooded estate for biking, walking and exploring is 10 minutes drive. Visit during the first weekend of December and enjoy the renowned Dunster by Candlelight event which is great fun with its street entertainers, carol singers and 'olde worlde' atmosphere. Also a short drive away is the sandy Dunster beach (near Dunster Steam Railway station) which has a pleasant lawn area and good facilities, including excellent refreshments, shop and cafe. With so much to see and do in the immediate vicinity you may not need to use the car however the many attractions of the wider area ensure that there is plenty for everyone.

Overall good property. Plenty of cooking equipment. Beds comfortable. Only annoying thing were the curtains which were hard to close especially as there was a lot of them. Scones and cream were a nice gesture.

Love the south facing patio and garden, quite and secluded, made apple crumble with cooking apples from the tree in the garden. Great that it is in the middle of area where you can get to rural and coastal towns of interest.

A very peaceful setting, with wonderfully private back garden, very close to the beach which isn't at all busy. All facilities provided and lots of very helpful information on all sorts of local and regional things (fossil hunting, nearby walks, star gazing, etc.) Nice to have good patio furniture provided, as well as barbecue trays!

The location was perfect and the final directions to get there were very useful. We walked to Watchet on the second day and got the train back to Blue Anchor. There were plenty of interesting places to visit during the week The dogs loved the enclosed garden. Could easily return for a second spell.
