The Property

This contemporary barn conversion is set amongst the apple trees at Shells, an attractive rural property near the pretty Somerset village of Washford. Set back from the road, this Washford cottage is one of several at Shells and is completely private, set in its own grounds. The modern open plan living area of this Washford cottage is extremely well equipped and opens onto a wide wooden veranda overlooking the orchard, where you can sit and listen to the merry birdsong. The bedrooms in this Washford cottage are all on ground level, with wooden laminate flooring, and the addition of a gorgeous Italian marble-lined wet room makes for stylish living. Outside this Washford cottage there is a partially covered private hot tub, ideal for relaxing after a day out and about, taking part in the multitude of countryside activities in the area including fishing, golf, horse riding and walking the coastal path which starts at the pretty port of Watchet, 2 miles away. Four miles away is the historic village of Dunster, where the NT-owned castle towers over the narrow winding cobbled streets of the village. The family will love the beach resort of Minehead, a 15 minute drive from this Washford cottage, with a lengthy seafront, sandy beach, plenty of shops and a departure station for the West Somerset steam railway.

A warm welcome and very clean property decorated to a high standard. The hot tub was fantastic! We would definitely recommend the cottage - thank you for a great family holiday!

Mr Stedman, Rochester, February 2014

Very private, quiet and cosy little house. Perfect to de-stress. The hot tub was the reason for booking and it was wonderful and well maintained. Sitting in the tub whilst the weather raged around us was an incredible experience. We particularly enjoyed the huge expanse of glass in the French windows which enabled us to watch the birds, including very noisy pheasants peering in the window.

Ms Gorman, Kenilworth, January 2014

Whilst relaxation was the aim, the the great location meant there was still plenty to visit with several local beaches nearby. Hot tub was awesome!!

Mr Didcott, Pontypool, January 2014

The cottage was fantastic, one of the best we have stayed in. Very clean, comfortable and private. Hot tub was a gem. We wanted a place to escape for the week and it was perfect. We have told all our friends and will return ourselves very soon!
