    “Great holiday cottage, very comfortable and well equipped.”

    Joy and Norm were great hosts - there to welcome us and also available for any queries and gave lots of good advice on places to go. The cottage is very well placed for the centre of Burnham, but on a very quiet road. It was easy to walk into town to get some shopping - there is a greengrocer, bakers, fishmonger, butcher all within easy reach, and Lidl is only a short walk. There are lots of walks in the area, and its very easy to walk straight from the cottage along the coast both north ...

    Joy and Norm were great hosts - there to welcome us and also available for any queries and gave lots of good advice on places to go. The cottage is very well placed for the centre of Burnham, but on a very quiet road. It was easy to walk into town to get some shopping - there is a greengrocer, bakers, fishmonger, butcher all within easy reach, and Lidl is only a short walk. There are lots of walks in the area, and its very easy to walk straight from the cottage along the coast both north and south. We had a few trips to Avalon Marshes to see the starling murmurations, thanks to Joy for advising us to avoid the weekends as it gets very busy and the roads can get almost impassable. There are lots of places to visit within under an hour, and if you are interested in wildlife, especially birds, then it is wonderful. Whenever we were in the cottage, we were fascinated by the sparrows using the bird feeder just outside the lounge window. The beach is only a few minutes walk and changes all the time depending on the tides, so you never get bored of the same walks.

The property

A delightful semi-detached chalet bungalow situated in a quiet cul-de-sac, a few minutes’ walk from the beach, in the Somerset seaside town of Burnham-on-Sea.

This lovely holiday home is an ideal base for couples, families and friends to enjoy the area with many activities and attractions close by.

This is also a perfect retreat for birdwatchers, dog walkers and nature lovers with a river estuary walk and park minutes from the house, and Bridgwater Bay National Nature Reserve and the Avalon marshes on the Somerset Levels close by.

The owner, a keen amateur wildlife and nature photographer, offers guided nature walks out across the moors at an additional cost.

Tastefully furnished, you enter into this wonderful cottage via a front porch then to a small hallway.

From here you will find a well-equipped kitchen, where you can prepare a tasty picnic to take to the beach, and after a day exploring the area you can come back and relax in front of the gas fire in the sitting room with a warm drink in hand.

Also on the ground floor is a bathroom, along with the dining room and a king-size bedroom, both of which overlook the pretty back garden.

Tucked away on the first floor is a beautiful double bedroom with a basin.

The private garden is a pleasant place to sit out on a sunny day with small lawns, flower borders and is home to plenty of birds.

Also outside and a bonus to staying at this superb cottage is a two-seater hot tub, so why not rest those achy legs after a long walk on the moors?

The nearest shops, pubs, restaurants, parks and beach are within easy walking distance, with Burnham-on-Sea also boasting fishing, sailing and a championship golf course.

Within driving distance are the famous Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole caves, the Mendip and Quantock hills, the wonderful city of Wells and Glastonbury Tor, many National Trust properties and the stunning Exmoor National Park.

A welcoming cottage close to many places of interest.
