  • "We enjoyed our stay finding the cottage comfortable and well equipped with a patio, table and seating in a pleasant garden, off the main road but close to the local shop, etc."

    and of course with an excellent welcome pack; our only negative comment concerned the main table in the kitchen. I remember before we arrived thinking that the photo of the table in the in the kitchen and the one shown in the living room both looked rather narrow and both against walls. There were only three of us but for a cottage that was equipped to take 6 adults plus some additional children it appeared that everyone sitting round a single table looked impossible. Anyway when we arrived it turned out that apparently the leaves from both tables could and had been inserted in one table making it four leaves wide so definitely wide enough, however it was still against the kitchen wall and immediately behind where people would be seated was the large double cooker flanked either side by the sink with draining board and a preparation area so not ideal for cooking. Worse still was the fact that the relatively narrow gap where people would be sitting was in fact also the “corridor” for getting from the stairs up to bedrooms/bathrooms to the freezer and fridge and the access to the sitting room and hallway. We dropped one leaf down on the wall side of the table which gave us a big enough table and improved access but to get through was still more like a game of musical chairs.

  • "We only live 10 minutes away rented the cottage due to having a new kitchen fitted."

    The bus stop to minehead (collage) is literally 1minute walk away so it was perfect for us. The only issues we had was the previous person who was in the cottage blocked the hoover so we had to take it apart to unclog it. That and I personally found the beds uncomfortable (I am disabled) however my partner and the kids found them really comfortable so that is a personal preference thing. The cottage isn't listed accurately, I say that because you get so much more in the cottage than advertised. Im pretty certain the cottagehad more appliances than I do at home haha. It comes with free netflix and prime too. It really is a home from home more than you could ever dream of. What could have made the cottage better... well a hot tub, underfloor heating and maybe a money tree so we never have to leave

  • "Carhampton great for walking."

    Nice information in the cottage. Also a few steps from the bus stop with great service to Minehead, Taunton, Watchet and other places. Local shop also close and sells most things you would expect and reasonable prices. Pity local pub was closed at the time of our visit but gives a good reason to go back.

  • "The cottage was exactly as described, in a really good location."

    Spotlessly clean when we arrived, and with everything that we needed provided. There was a really nice welcome pack provided by the owner. The information provided by the owner also made us feel very welcome - lots of encouragement to make full use of the facilities and enjoy ourselves, rather than focusing on what we mustn't do, which is sometimes the case.

The property

Located at the centre of the action of the traditional village of Carhampton, this charming white-washed terraced dwelling offers an ideal base for exploring the delights of Somerset and North Devon.

With three equally delightful bedrooms, the property is perfect for a group of friends or family to enjoy a holiday in a friendly community nestled between the countryside and the coast.

Hang your coats up in the hallway and come through to the back of the property where you will find the kitchen/diner, home to all the appliances you could possibly need for a week-long stay, this area of the house makes a great spot to enjoy your morning coffee at the rustic wooden breakfast bar.

Relax in the sitting room where you will find ample seating to choose from, comprising a sofa, two chairs and a chaise lounge, meaning the whole group can gather together to enjoy each other’s company.

The kitchen and sitting room tables fit together for a more formal dining arrangement, seating six comfortably.

For a spot of quiet time, take a book from the bookshelf and step into the multi-level garden offering a tranquil spot to enjoy the fresh country air, as well as making a great area to bring everyone together in the evenings whilst huddled around the fire pit for that extra bit of warmth on a summer’s evening.

When the evening draws to a close, retreat to the first floor where you will find three bright and airy bedrooms to choose from; consisting of a double with an en-suite shower room, a king-size and a double serviced by a shared shower room, you can be sure that each of these rooms is as delightful as the next, all boasting a mix of contemporary and vintage finds and luxury linens.

There is a village pub and the welcoming village shop and post office stocks all the essentials.

Exmoor rises almost from the back door of the cottage.

Put your boots on and within ten minutes you will be walking through the deer park with Dunster Castle beckoning you on.

This historic village is well worth exploring.

In the other direction, Blue Anchor beach is a two-mile walk across the fields.

If you time it well, you may see a magnificently restored steam train puff into the wonderfully nostalgic station at Blue Anchor.

Spend a day at the beach at Minehead, or travel slightly inland to explore better the wonders of Lorna Doone country; no matter how you choose to spend your holiday, 3 Elm Cottage makes a wondrous base to return to after your days of adventure.

About the location


Dunster 1.6 miles; Minehead 4 miles.

Carhampton is an attractive village close to the Exmoor National Park, with a church, pub, village store, community orchard and Post Office. There are lovely walks from the village, over the deer park to Dunster, and through farmland to the beach. The village is less than 4 miles from the popular seaside resort of Minehead, which occupies a wonderful sheltered spot beneath the dramatic North Hill, on the lovely West Somerset coast. This welcoming town boasts a mile-long esplanade, providing a wonderful backdrop to the golden beach, whilst the pretty harbour, visited in the summer by the famous paddle steamer Waverley, offers excellent fishing opportunities. Enjoy a nostalgic steam train journey from the seafront on the West Somerset Railway, or visit Blenheim Gardens, winner of many awards for its beautiful floral displays. Renowned for the largest herd of red deer in England, Exmoor National Park with its wooded valleys, pretty bridle paths and heather-clad moors, is well worth a visit, whilst the magnificent Norman Castle at nearby Dunster is a must.
