Property Description

In a wonderful scenic valley, on Exmoor National Park, 8 miles south of Minehead, this 17th century semi-detached character cottage is excellent for two families. In an idyllic location, with a small stream running through the valley, this cottage full of charm, with its stone floors and wooden beams, has been tastefully furnished and has a large upstairs living room with a woodburner, leading out onto a balcony. You can unwind with some stunning country walks through woodlands and the moors, go horse-riding, fishing or cycling in this unspoilt area, or visit the many attractions within easy driving. Minehead is a must with its Somerwest World Theme Park, sandy beach and scenic steam railway for a trip back in time to Bishop’s Lydeard. There is also the fascinating magical medieval Dunster Castle, Mill and Deer Park, Tropiquaria, and towards Tiverton Knightshayes Court and Gardens (NT), which will make for a great holiday. Shop and pub with food 1.5 miles.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Great stay in Travellers Rest. Group of 9, perfect size for us all. Quite location but good base for exploring the area. Sept 2012.
  2. Fabulous setting, so peaceful. The cottage was so well equipped, just like a family home, everything you needed from toilet rolls to a rolling pin was supplied. Our grand-daughter who were normally very wary of dogs were completely won over by Sweep and Kappai who wandered down from the farm and even followed then on a walk along the lanes. We can highly recommend the cottage for a family holiday, enough space for everyone, even those who are very animated when playing Charades in the evening. July 2011.
  3. Ideal accommodation for our family of eight adults and one toddler, perfect for dining in with well equipped kitchen and large dining room for us all, nice to have stream running past the front of the house and the garden reached via a small bridge. May 2011.
  4. Larger than expected, lovely and clean and a very well stocked kitchen with plenty of wine glasses etc which does make all the difference. Sept 2010.
  5. The property was very ideal, plenty of space for the family to move about without being on top of each other. Aug 2010.
  6. Lovely plenty of room for 10 people. April 2010.
  7. Good quality fixtures and fittings. Lots of space. Well furnished bedrooms with comfortable beds. Comfortable sofas and chairs. Dec 2009.
  8. Very comfortable cottage. We visited the steam railway in Minehead and Dunster Castle and beaches. Some lovely walks near the cottage. The location was good, 2 gardens for our use with BBQ. A rotary washing line in the garden near the house would have been useful. July 2009.
  9. You have never let us down. We usually go for your upper grades and have yet to be disappointed. This property is in a very good location for exploring Exmoor and in a beautiful secluded valley. We saw red deer from the deck and lots of bird life. It was exceptional weather and so were our hosts and the neighbours. It’s a gem. Oct 2007.
  10. A perfect accommodation for a larger party. It was fantastic for the whole family to be seated round the table at Christmas in front of the roaring wood burner. The cottage is huge but at the same time homely. It was absolutely perfect. Completely safe for our two dogs too. Would definitely like to return. Dec 2006.
  11. The house was fantastic - and well exceeded out expectations. The web site photos did not do justice - the house was like a tardis - it just went on and on! Thank you and also thank you to the wonderful telephone operator who found the house for us - it had been a cancellation. Thank you. Oct 2006.
  12. Probably one of the cleanest and best equipped property we have stayed at. Overall accommodation was excellent in a beautiful setting. March 2006.
  13. Excellent property in a superb rural setting. Highly recommendable! March 2008.
  14. The cottage was lovely we could not have wished for anything to be better with it. The surrounding area was lovely with plenty to do for all the family. Aug 2006.
