  • "Little Knaplock is a perfect property."

    Helen and Richard are lovely but unobtrusive hosts, providing all the information you need to have a brilliant time exploring Somerset, such as OS maps, walks, details of all amenities, lots of books and games, blankets for those rare cool nights for stargazing under the big beautiful dark skies, and even local coffee, yes, milk, bread and tasty eggs from the lovely quiet chickens. The property is well appointed, tastefully decorated and the bed is really comfy and cosy. Highly recommended and would definitely stay here again.

    Thank you so much for comprehensive and lovely feedback, we much appreciate it and hope to welcome you back again soon. Property Owner

  • "My fiancé and I were spending a joint birthday break away at Little Knaplock."

    From the moment we arrived we felt completely at home and totally relaxed. The accommodation was first class, very comfortable and well equipped. Loved the entrance downstairs leading up to the open area complete with balcony overlooking stunning scenery and the owners hens. Bathroom was modern and light, as was the kitchen. Wi-Fi was excellent which most people know expect. We were fortunate enough to meet the owners who were very friendly and helpful. Cannot fault our stay and hopefully we will return soon.

    Thank you for your positive feedback. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to welcome you back again soon. Property Owner

    A modern annex with everything we needed and more. Private on site parking was superb and there is even a charging point for electric vehicles. We enjoyed our week but wish the weather had allowed us to use the bbq and balcony. We received a warm welcome from the hosts and would love to stay again in this beautiful spot. Our first stay in a Sykes cottage will definitely not be our last

  • "Loved our stay at Little Knaplock!"

    Great location to travel around Somerset Accommodation is quaint, but doesnt lack in space or of anything you need. We stayed for a week and was completely self sufficient - everything you need to cook is to hand, bed is comfortable and sofa is fab to relax on. Bathroom a fab size - inclusive of a power shower. Lovely balcony to sit out and admire the view whilst reading. The lovely owner lives just next door (expressed that "all we have to do is knock" if we needed anything) - plus there was even a little welcome pack consisting of fresh milk, eggs and bread plus some tea and coffee. Would 100% recommend.

Combwich 2.1 miles.

Tucked away in the hamlet of Coultings near Combwich in West Somerset, is this spacious studio-style first-floor apartment, Little Knaplock.

Enjoying a prime position with easy access to the stunning Quantock Hills AONB, the wildlife rich surroundings of Somerset Levels and Steart Marshes, the coast and further afield, Exmoor National Park, Little Knaplock is a fantastic base for couples seeking ample walking and cycling opportunities in Somerset.

Leave your vehicle in the car port which features an electric charging point, as well as a handy sink.

Enter the property through your own private entrance, where you can safely store bikes, fishing and beach gear and your coats and shoes after your journey!

Be welcomed into the open-plan living space, featuring a dishwasher and beautiful countryside views from its bi-fold doors, where you can look forward to whipping up flavourful meals ready to enjoy at the dining table for two over a bottle of wine.

If the weather is nice, why not fire up the barbecue out on the decked balcony and savour your meal with breath-taking views of the open countryside?

After dinner, relax on the sofa with your favourite tipple as you select a much-loved film from the large TV as the evening’s entertainment.

After a day of hiking through the Quantocks or cycling along the coast, wash away the day with a hot shower in the contemporary shower room.

When sleep calls, catch your rest in the sumptuous king-size bed with zip/link, ahead of another adventure filled day.

For your local amenities, head over to the riverside village of Combwich, where you can treat your loved one to a meal at the welcoming Combwich Anchor, followed by a leisurely stroll along the River Parrett, or stock up on essentials at the Post Office housing a shop.

Next stop is Cannington, where you can test out your swing at the excellent Cannington Golf Course, brush up on your riding skills at the Cannington Equestrian Centre or sample a sweet treat at The Walled Gardens of Cannington & Tea Room.

Pop on your walking boots or grab your bike and set off into the captivating surroundings of the Quantock Hills AONB, where you can wander the expansive woodlands at Ramscombe Great Wood and Hawkridge Woods and its reservoir, soak up views of the coast along the Kilve and East Quatoxhead or admire the serene surrounding of the bluebells on Cothelstone Hill.

If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, why not hike up Wills Neck, the highest summit on the Quatock Hills for incomparable views over the surrounding towns and villages?

Be sure to check out the popular National Trust site of Fyne Court, a lush arboretum with wild gardens.
