  • "The location was lovely and peaceful with rabbits hopping around everywhere."

    The garden was ideal for our two dogs because there was plenty of space for them to run around playing ball. Whilst it was great having a television in every room it would have helped if the reception had been better - the picture kept breaking up and I had to resort to watching programmes on my laptop. In addition if one wanted to use a mobile phone it was necessary to go out into the garden as there was no signal inside. However, despite these drawbacks we thoroughly enjoyed our week's stay at High Lodge but the inclusion of a visitors' book would be a good idea so comments could be added.

  • "This is a lovely property that has been finished to a high standard."

    We had a very comfortable stay at High Lodge and I would recommend it. There are lots of great dog walks close by and the large garden was appreciated by our dog. The only thing that I would suggest is to improve the kitchen equipment as it is quite limited. The addition of a mixing bowl, some additional cooking pans and a bottle opener would be welcome. There is so much wonderful produce in Somerset I like to cook when we are away, which is why we book cottages and this was restricted this time by the lack of kitchen equipment.

  • "Lovely property - clean and spacious, wonderful grounds."

    This was our second time renting this accommodation as it’s so good! Having the pub close by is a great feature - it’s not so close that there’s any noise disturbance though. Plenty of dog walking opportunities and lots to do in the area. Cleeve Abbey is worth a visit (dog friendly and within a short walking distance from the property). There is a DVD player in the lounge and TVs in every room. Kitchen is reasonably well equipped. BBQ is old but serviceable (it’s charcoal, not a gas one). All in all a super place to stay.

  • "Great property , really loved it and position was great would definitely go there again, super place with some nice touches such as prosecco left in fridge , cider, and choccy biscuits."

    - but would say- Property needs kitchen scales. Outside sun umbrella needed. The outside chairs were filthy. Be out by 10,00 too early if you are older and slower.

  • "Lovely airy property."

    Very high quality. Comfortable beds. Somerset area is very dog friendly - beaches, pubs, cafes, shops... Large outside area to property probably dog secure but large perimeter made it difficult to be sure. Property very private and quiet. Local pub across the road - good food but popular. Wifi reception good. No dvd/blu-ray/smart tv. TV has Freeview channels. Would recommend a stay here.

  • "Lovely property, good facilities, would have liked shower pressure to be better but we had a comfortable stay, our dog loved all the space to run and the White Horse pub close by was wonderful, friendly people great food and beer."

  • "This was our second visit to High Lodge and our feedback is much the same."

    A beautiful property but some niggles. The property sleeps four people but has a two slice toaster, one medium sized frying pan, etc. A few more cleaning products would be useful.

The property

Resting on the edge of the Quantock Hills AONB and Exmoor National Park, High Lodge is set in over a quarter of an acre of private grounds, boasting a rustic exterior with contemporary amenities sprinkled throughout, making it a perfect choice for families or sharing friends seeking an escape to rural Somerset.

After parking up, step into your new reverse-level accommodation where you will find a fully-equipped kitchen/diner, where the chosen chef can rustle up delicious meals to be savoured at the dining table, the breakfast bar, or alfresco on the furnished, private patio area in the warmer months.

In the evenings, enjoy a film on the TV whilst you and your loved ones lounge in the well-appointed sitting room, before heading upstairs to refresh and rejuvenate in one of two bedrooms, both of which come complete with accompanying en-suites that provide an idyllic spot to prepare for a well-earned slumber ahead of a brand new day.

If you fancy exploring your local area, venture into Washford where you can spend time with exotic wildlife at the Tropiquaria Wildlife Park before settling down for some traditional pub fare at the Washford Inn.

Whilst you're in the region, explore the numerous beautiful walking trails and cycling tracks throughout Exmoor National Park, as well as thrilling activities such as horse riding, sea fishing, archery, and clay pigeon shooting.

A short distance away, you can find Watchet, a harbour town filled with museums, pubs, restaurants and a quaint marina port.

Other coastal spots worth visiting include the sandy havens of Blue Anchor, Minehead and Dunster, or find more rural landscapes along the South West Coastal Path and Coleridge Way.

Enjoy a wonderful stay in Somerset with your loved ones when booking High Lodge.
