  • "What a lovely place and setting."

    This is my second visit and will definitely come again. Think big comfortable rooms with beamed ceilings, generous bathroom and a farmhouse-style kitchen on the upper floor. You can sit round a wooden table with cups of tea or throw open the arched door and sit on the step overlooking trees and old walled gardens. In summer we sat out in the sun trap garden and watched the sun go down as a family of hedgehogs emerged. This time we revisited the rolling fields just outside the door - the start of the Quanttocks - and drove the short distance to the sea for a long walk along atmospheric Dunster beach. The weekend was topped off with a home made curry at the cosy White Horse pub a walk away but there’s also a gastro pub, beachfront cafe and cream teas in easy reach. This is a hidden treasure - in an inexplicably overlooked part of Somerset. I’d go before everyone else discovers it.

  • "There is definitely only parking for one vehicle!"

    To park on the road would have been very dangerous to us and other road users as the route is used by heavy farm vehicles. We ended up by paying one of the neighbours £50.00 to park one of our vehicles on their land for the week. You need to make sure that people are aware that there is a downstairs flat that is rented full time! You have to squeeze passed their vehicles (and washing line) to get into your access doors. They have a lovely view of you sitting in the garden which I should think is awkward for all parties! They can be heard ‘chatting’ from upstairs! I definitely felt that the owners have ‘jumped on the holiday home bandwagon’ to make use of the situation COVID has put us in!

    Thank you for your comment. We're sorry the property failed to meet your expectations, for reasons relating to parking, access and neighbours. You might be pleased to know that there is now parking for two vehicles at the property. A small garage has been made available to guests, since you stayed. Regarding access, if you approach the property through the garden gate, there is no need to squeeze past anything! Perhaps we could have made that clearer. Regarding the annex (2, The Coach House), it is occupied by a lovely couple who, in our experience, live a very quiet life. They do not have access to the garden, and we have not received any other comments about them being there. The main and sunniest part of the garden, including the patio and sun-lounging area, is not overlooked by their windows. Thank you again for your feedback. We hope that you enjoyed your stay otherwise. Kind regards, The Owners Property Owner

  • "The cottage is in small hamlet nicely placed to access much of Somerset and Devon."

    It is decorated with original artwork on the walls and many original looking features. The hosts are really helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend.

The property

Located inside the Exmoor National Park, the principal part of this stunning converted Georgian coach house is perfect for a family retreat to the Somerset coastline.

Explore Exmoor and the ancient parish of Nettlecombe from the doorstep, hunt for fossils along Somerset’s Jurassic coast or take a steam-train ride on the West Somerset Railway.

Visit Cleeve Abbey, an ancient English Heritage monastery, the enchanting Dunster Castle, a National Trust gem, or the picturesque harbour town of Watchet, home to a marina, museums and thriving street markets.

Or relax in the secluded and enclosed garden with a traditional open fronted barn.

A south-facing outdoor sofa area is a real sun-trap.

Enjoy an evening stroll to the nearby Notley Arms gastro-pub, for a drink in the beer garden or an award-winning meal.

Or spend evenings cooking up a storm in the amply-equipped kitchen/diner before gathering round the dining table or enjoying a spot of alfresco dining on the patio.

A magnificent first floor sitting room awaits upstairs, bursting with original features and local art, exposed oak beams, and a polished wooden floor.

The ground floor houses a twin bedroom with doors out onto the garden and a double bedroom with en suite shower room, as well as a separate cloakroom with basin and WC.

A third bedroom awaits on the first floor, with a double bed and an elegant en suite bathroom.

There are a range of amenities located nearby, including the shops, pubs, restaurants, and cafés in Williton and Watchet.

Watchet 2 miles; Williton 2 miles; Minehead 8 miles

The quiet hamlet of Yarde is perfectly situated in the foothills of the Exmoor National Park, close to the Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and only 2 miles from the west Somerset coast. The area is well served by local shops and pubs, with the attractive West Somerset Railway also passing through, providing a lovely relaxing trip along the coast from the popular seaside resort of Minehead through glorious unspoilt countryside - a treat not to be missed! Within a short drive are the pretty coastal settlements of Watchet, Blue Anchor and Porlock Weir and the South West Coast Path, providing wonderful walking and cycling opportunities for those wanting to admire the incredible coastal views. A visit to the historic village of Dunster, with its yarn market and ancient castle, is also a must. There is so much on offer in this super area for all the family.
