This pretty, detached, thatched cottage is situated a mile from Minehead, on a tiny lane next to a ford which leads to Bratton.
With heather hills and woodland all around, this is a magical place for couples or young families at any time of year.
Take the path over a little bridge and step down through the back door into the kitchen, a well equipped space for preparing meals.
Another step leads you down into the cosy sitting room with its wood burning stove and dining area.
The two upstairs bedrooms share a smart bathroom with a bath sitting snugly under the eaves.
You will sleep peacefully in the lovely double bedroom with its ancient curved walls and stained glass windows.
Equally tranquil is the secluded enclosed garden at the back where you can spot wildlife around the fenced pond and eat alfresco.
Walk the surrounding hills of the Vale of Porlock with their views to the sea, and maybe climb to Selworthy Beacon above the pretty National Trust village of Selworthy.

About the location
Westbury 2.5 miles; Trowbridge 5 miles; Bath 17.5 miles
A delightful, Iron Age village set in the centre of a triangle of AONB's; the Cotswolds, the North Wessex Downs and Cranborne Chase, in Wiltshire. Bratton boasts an incredible history including the Bratton Camp hill fort and three Grade II* listed buildings to admire. As well as this, the nearby scenic Bratton Downs are an SSSI and are certainly worth a walk with your dogs. In terms of amenities, the village provides a pub, a shop and a Post Office for your convenience. Bratton is perfectly located for ramblers, cyclists or wildlife lovers as there is so much countryside and open space around. For a fine variety of amenities and charming buildings, visit nearby Westbury or head slightly further to Trowbridge, both make for excellent day trips. The beautiful town of Bath is also easily accessible, showcasing some incredible buildings and plenty to do.
