  • “An extractor fan in the bathroom would be a help.”

    The outdoor temperature for our stay was around 18 to 20 degrees. It proved difficult to air the bathroom as the heating was not scheduled to come on (there were no instructions about the heating so we assume it is pre-set). The bathroom is downstairs and the window opens into next door's yard, but in any case the overall temperature was too cool to drive away the damp feeling. This is not a major grumble, but it could be eased without too much trouble. ...

This is not a major grumble, but it could be eased without too much trouble. The cottage is very snug and in a very attractive and convenient location. We had a very enjoyable holiday and we will certainly consider using Sykes again, and possibly coming back to Boo Cottage.

The property

This inviting semi-detached cottage rests in the pretty village of Kingston St Mary, in the beautiful county of Somerset.

With a tastefully decorated interior, Boo Cottage provides a heart-warming base for families or a couple looking to escape the hustle and bustle of their everyday lives and explore this peaceful part of the country.

Hearty feasts can easily be prepared in the well-appointed kitchen, while the dining area provides ample seating for all the group to gather during mealtimes.

After dinner, delight in the refreshing sitting room, with a sofa and an armchair, enjoying a family film before heading to bed.

With a king-size double and single bedroom, this cottage is perfect for a family of three.

The sparkling family bathroom is complete with a bath and shower over, so you can choose from an indulgent soak in the tub or a quick shower to prepare for the day.

Enjoy a cold beverage as you sit out in the lovely courtyard, benefiting from a south-facing aspect which catches the sun.

If you don’t fancy cooking then there is a traditional pub opposite the property, The Swan Inn, which serves good local food and ales.

The area is popular with walkers and cyclists with plenty of footpaths and pretty country lanes to explore, particularly around the Quantock Hills and Exmoor National Park.

Not far from the cottage is the county town of Taunton which offers many bars and restaurants, along with a range of shops worth browsing.

You can also find Hestercombe Gardens just outside Taunton town centre, or why not venture further afield to Dunster Castle which boasts spectacular views of the Bristol channel, the Quantock hills and up to the moors of Exmoor.

Boo Cottage is a delightful base for those looking for a slow pace-of-life in this unspoilt part of the country.

About the location

TAUNTON

Bridgwater 11 miles; Tiverton 21 miles; Weston-super-Mare 30 miles

The county town of Somerset, Taunton is a beautiful town and a perfect cottage holiday destination. The town has excellent buildings with charming stone and Tudor architecture, there is also fascinating history in the town stretching back over 1000 years including a 10th century monastery. It offers wonderful amenities with the Orchard Shopping Centre and plenty of other places to shop and eat. As well as this, Taunton boasts a choice of museums and parks, one of which has held the Taunton Flower Show for over 150 years. For your outdoor enthusiasts, the Quantock and Blackdown Hills Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty are easily accessible, as well as the Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks slightly further afield. If a day by the sea is what you're after, the coast is around 20 miles away, with the popular seaside resort of Weston-super-Mare a further 10 miles away but is well worth the journey with its great range of activities.
