If you are looking for a romantic retreat then cider cottage may well be perfect for you. This detached stone holiday cottage has been refurbished to a very high standard and is delightfully located in a quiet are in the owners’ grounds at the foot of the Quantock Hills.
The ground floor has an open plan lounge, dining and kitchen area with a separate utility room with sink, washing machine and w.c. The kitchen has an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, microwave and large fridge/freezer. Free WiFi is provided and guests are welcome to make use of the garden. If you'd like to light a barbecue you're welcome to do so and there's ample parking right next to the cottage. Sadly the cottage isn't really suitable for wheelchair users. Bedding and towels are provided as well as other essentials such as a hair dryer and ironing board.
There is good walking and cycling from the cottage and on the adjacent hills. The popular West Somerset Railway is just 2 miles away for a nostalgic trip back to the days of steam.
The property is within easy reach of Exmoor, Dunster, the coast and the county town of Taunton. Shops are just three miles and there are plenty of good pubs in the area.
