Shells Cottages

The Property

This modern barn conversion is set on the higher slopes at Shells, a collection of holiday cottages set in several acres of grounds in rural countryside near the Somerset village of Washford. Complete with private garden and hot tub, this Washford cottage has lovely rural views and is ideal for a group of four looking for a relaxing holiday near the coast. All the rooms are on the ground floor and the open plan living room of this Washford cottage is made attractive by the vaulted beamed ceiling, plentiful windows and laminate flooring throughout. The two bedrooms of this Washford cottage share a stylish Italian marble-lined wet room with underfloor heating. At the rear of the cottage there is a partially covered private hot tub, serviced daily by the owners who are members of BISHTA (British and Irish Spa and Hot Tub Association), providing an extra special touch for your relaxing holiday near the sea. The pretty port of Watchet, two miles away, is an ideal place to wander the shops, explore the coast path or visit the Tropiquaria zoo. The North Somerset Coast Path provides spectacular walking, the historic village of Dunster offers a NT-owned castle which dominates the narrow winding cobbled streets of the village, and families will probably want to enjoy the fun at the beach resort of Minehead, a 15 minute drive from this Washford cottage, with a sandy beach, promenade lined with arcades and shops, plus a departure station for the West Somerset steam railway. A luxury Washford cottage near the North Somerset coastal area and Exmoor. Note: This property is near to Refs. 11459, 13806, 16587 and 16588, together they sleep 36.
