  • "The property was excellent with everything you could need."

    The rooms are large with plenty of seating. There is a lovely view from the conservatory looking over farm land. We used the property as a hub to visit the areas we haven't been before like Beer Beach and Watchet.

    Thank you for the great feedback. We're really glad that you liked the cottage and had a good holiday! Property Owner

  • "Stunning views at Rainbow View."

    The owners left a very lovely welcome pack. As a November visit & a very rural location, wellies are a must & we took our dogs: if your dogs are ‘jumpers’, the fences around the patio might be easy for them to get over. Lovely walks around and stunning countryside. Rainbow view is warm & spacious & bedrooms cosy; no light/noise pollution! Thank you for a lovely very needed peaceful break.

    We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Rainbow View - we hope to see you again! Thank you for the great review :) Property Owner

  • "The cottage is beautiful - with lovely decor and furniture and a real home from home."

    The welcome goodies were a tasty treat too - thank you. The view is gorgeous - on a sunny day! and is perfectly placed for walks with the dogs or wandering around some of the lovely towns, visiting the pubs for scrumptious meals etc. One thing I would recommend is good outdoor lighting - the lights are there we just didn't know how to turn them on, otherwise this cottage is a must book in our opinion.

    Such a nice surprise to have a freshly baked loaf of bread waiting to greet us when we arrived. The owners had thought of everything you would need, it was also nice to have milk, tea, coffee and sugar already in the accommodation so you could make a much needed cup of tea on arrival.

    There was a lovely welcome gift of wine, cookies, coffee, and a jug of milk in the fridge, along with a scrumptious loaf of freshly baked bread, and butter to spread . The property is spacious, well equipped and beautifully presented. The setting of the property is in the stunning Blackdown Hills, in a tranquil, rural location.

Geographically well placed for visiting Cheddar Gorge (40 minutes) Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, (90minutes) Seaton Tramway (40 minutes) Also well worth a visit are the lovely Cantonteign Falls, about an hour away.

The property

Churchinford 2.4 miles.

Nestled in the heart of Somerset in the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is Rainbow View, which lies within six acres of private grounds in the rural parish of Churchstanton.

This idyllic, cosy abode benefits from a fantastic location overlooking the breath-taking, open countryside.

There is private parking for two cars and two beautifully-appointed bedrooms; the perfect setting for families, couples or friends looking to explore the wonders of Somerset with their beloved canine companion.

The property boasts a fully-equipped kitchen where you can rustle up tasty meals for the whole family or pamper your partner with a romantic meal for two.

Dine together in either the kitchen or around the stylish large table in the open-plan dining/living room, and raise a toast to your getaway ahead of snuggling up on the plush corner sofa and flicking on the Smart TV to select a film for the evening.

In the warmer months enjoy the south-facing aspect of the property on the private terrace, or take a stroll around the grounds.

When the sky darkens, find the sleek shower room, and wash off the day’s adventures before choosing between the super-king-size bed or the king-size to drift off to sleep in.

If you are a keen horse rider, why not bring your four legged friend with you; the stables, grazing, and the use of the large ménage can be arranged separately.

If you can tear yourself away from your new home-from-home, venture into Churchinford where you can stock up on all the essentials for your self-catered stay or enjoy a well-earned break from the kitchen at The York Inn, which serves a variety of delicious food.

Waitrose, Tesco, Sainsburys and Asda are all located in the nearby towns of Wellington and Taunton, and will deliver to the property.

Rainbow View lies in the heart of the breath-taking Blackdown Hills where keen ramblers can roam the picturesque landscape with routes including the Valleyheads Way and Staple Hill/Neroche Forest, where there are dedicated routes for cycling and multiple horse riding circuits!

If you don’t fancy getting in the car, take a stroll up the lane to the 14th century Church of Churchstanton, passing the local outdoor reared piglets along the way, or set off along the footpath from Rainbow View and enjoy walks through fields, woodland, and pretty dells.

Be sure to explore the heritage woven throughout the area such as the striking Wellington Monument, the unique Culmstock Beacon and the fascinating Dunkeswell Abbey which was founded in 1201.

Take a scenic drive to the county town of Somerset, Taunton, where you can immerse yourself in the past at the Museum of Somerset or take to the River Tone with kayaks and paddle boards from French Weir Park.

Also a short drive away is the breathtaking Jurassic coast; enjoy fossil hunting at Lyme Regis, let the kids enjoy the sand at Charcombe, or take to the South West Coast Path for stunning walks.

All this and more awaits at Rainbow View.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
