Meadow Wood

| Ref: 28137
Grade 4 Star rating

Tucked away down a farm track is this delightful detached holiday property, once the house of Arthur C Clarke (Space Odyssey 2001) and close to the village where Evelyn Waugh (Brideshead Revisited) also lived. The property is situated just below the Quantock Hills AONB and with wonderful views over the Somerset countryside. It has been decorated and furnished to a very good standard and offers the perfect get away for families or friends who want to get together. It it near the owner’s summerhouse and touring caravan which the owner’s may occasionally stay in, but offers complete privacy. The small village of Combe Florey lies hidden off the main A358, just over six miles north west of Taunton and a mile from Bishops Lydeard, which is where the Somerset steam railway, which can be seen from the property, begins its journey to Minehead, taking in Watchet, Blue Anchor and Minehead. The pub is just a 5-minute walk and offers a good selection of real ales and good food. Shop 1½ miles, pub and restaurant 100 yards.
