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.
For fun seaside traditions, head to Minehead or visit the hilltop castle at Dunster.

About the location
Taunton 24 miles; Bridgwater 27 miles.
The popular seaside resort of Minehead 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 bridlepaths and heather clad moors, is well worth a visit, whilst the magnificent Norman Castle at nearby Dunster is a must.
