  • "This was a 21st brithday treat for my granddaughter."

    Her and her partner had a wonderful time. They said the views were amazing, and the property was situated in a perfect location for them. They loved the hot tub and the cottage, and were very peased with their stay. I intend booking this for myself soon.

    We are really pleased that your grand daughter and her partner enjoyed there stay, and look forward to welcoming soon. Property Owner

  • "This was our third time at The Stables and always look forward to returning."

    The cottage is very well equipped and the surroundings are fantastic with far views over the countryside. The recently new hot tub was superb and spotlessly clean. Andy the owner should be very proud of the facilities he offers at Cookley Woods.

    The Stables was comfortable and clean with everything provided. We loved being able to hear the trains on the West Somerset Railway and visited twice. Wonderful views of the surrounding countryside.

  • "Wow what a stunning location ."

    Peace and quiet the whole week which Is what we wanted . The views are outstanding and cottage was comfortable . Bed was very comfy with a firm mattress . Pictures on Sykes don’t do justice as it’s much nicer than looks and pics are a bit out of date . Secure area for dog and a cafe just around the corner . Plenty of local pubs with good food . Weather was on our side too which made it even better

  • "Such a lovely location."

    Everything in the apartment was good, just thought the kitchen could do with a better clean. There was dust and crumbs on the surface of the fridge where it met the kitchen worktop, the cooker dials were quite grubby too. But then I have to admit the bathroom was prestine. I am a bit crazy when it comes to noticing grubby areas im afraid. The cooker door is really hard to open. The microwave wasn't woking but Andy came and replaced it immediately. The hot tub, like me, is a bit passed it's prime, but it is hot and you do get a little bit of a jet happening. Fantasticly quiet place with amazing views. Bed comfortable too and heating was absolutely brilliant.

    Hills, stars, sunsets, rolling fields, horses, and a steam training puffing away down in the valley. Place to relax and let the cares of the world fall away. Hot tub lovely but needs updating. We highly recommend this cottage.

    We also brought our dog with us which was lovely to be able to do and we all loved the open space around the cottage. The facilities in and around the cottage were very well maintained and clean and we especially loved the hot tub. Waking up to horses outside the window was a unique and nice experience. We will most definitely be back to the cottage! Neil and Chloe

    Perfect place if you want solitude - I stood in the doorway one morning and there was no wind at all and I thought to myself this is the sound of silence everything you need for your stay in the kitchen - the only thing I would say is that the sofa was very small

  • "Secluded and peaceful location with countryside views for miles."

    Accommodation was warm, cosy and spotlessly clean with everything you could need provided. Hot tub was spacious and cleaned regularly, always kept hot and ready to use night and day. Owner was friendly and on hand if needed to ensure a welcoming, enjoyable stay. Being secluded, you would need transport with pubs and shop an energetic 30+ minute walk away through narrow unlit lanes. Comfortable as the settee was, it was a little snug for two.

  • "The property was spotlessly clean on our arrival."

    Andy had also called ahead and taken time to provide additional directions to the location. In addition it would be worth, if not already on the listing, providing the allocated 'what three words' from the app of same name to provide that extra confidence in finding the cottage. Totally peaceful, undisturbed and private location with brilliant scenery and a great sunset. Plenty of hot water, great shower and heating worked perfectly giving a warm sanctuary following a dip in the hot tub this time of year. Overall a very good stay despite weather being dreadful and managed to get out to local towns and villages each day. Thank you Andy

  • "This is an absolutely gorgeous little place, we had an amazing stay."

    Key collection was exceptionally easy, (Andy left us a voicemail giving us easy directions to the property and instructions) and we weren't disturbed whatsoever throughout our stay. Sitting outside on the patio all you can hear is the sound of animals, the trees in the wind, and the occasional plane, nothing else. The horses in the field opposite are an absolute delight to look at. Pure bliss. We were surprised on arrival about all the little touches like full icecube trays, milk in the fridge, every kitchen accessory you could want, and spa gowns for after using the hot tub. The property itself is also absolutely spotless. You can tell the owner is really passionate about making this place amazing and that you have a great stay. Hottub and BBQ set are looking a little bit worn/used now compared to the photos, but the hottub still works flawlessly and was fantastic. Other than that everything was absolutely faultless.

    Property was relatively easy to get to. The entry point is the second gate, from the directions, which isn't sign posted. Everything was in good working order, the views were stunning. My only slight downside was the hottub. Not a fan of inflatable hot tubs and could've done with some TLC, the fact that it was covered was the selling point for me. Would definitely recommend the accommodation.

  • "Brilliant overall."

    .. Absolutely incredible stay. Would say the directions on how to get there are quite difficult - when you see a sign which says Culverlay you need to turn there and the cottage is down the road. There is also not a key box by the patio doors - it is by the hot tub and it also doesn’t have the same combination stated on your email beforehand. Caused a good 30 mins of stress actually trying to get into the cottage - rest of the stay made up for that initial havoc though.

    After looking on every site we came across this hidden gem! The owner was very welcoming on arrival and gave us a quick tour. He explained that everyday between 7&8am he would check the hot tub but we never heard him so he was very quiet! The place was very clean and had everything we needed especially to cook with. Everything was very much simple to use and instructions were given in a folder. The bed was very comfy and the shower was just amazing. The heating was simple to adjust and there was even a dishwasher so no hassle of washing up! The tv had Netflix and prime so lots of choices to watch, the WiFi is free however is a little slow. The outside was very clean and the hot tub was an extra to relax in. The location was perfect and a lot to do around the area and it was located in a peaceful area for relaxing especially with horses & sheep as neighbours. The owner kindly dropped off some menus of a local pub that had reopened and we visited one evening for dinner. We didn’t want to leave so we will definitely be back when we can!

Cookley Wood Cottages

Enjoying an enviable position between the eastern flank of the Brendon Hills and the Quantock Hills are two exceptional holiday properties, The Stables and The Outlook, resting less than two miles away from the quaint village of Stogumber. With stunning, far-reaching countryside views and everything you could possibly need to enjoy a self-catering getaway, the Cookley Wood Cottages are a rare find for groups of couples, friends and families seeking to explore Somerset and beyond.

Both cottages offer great living spaces, including well-equipped kitchens to cater your own culinary delights and during the summer months, both gardens provide space for alfresco dining together as a group or separately, with the stunning Somerset countryside as your backdrop.

As well as great dining options, the town also plays host to a large number of independent shops and a number of parks for peaceful picnics and leisurely strolls. Keen walkers can look forward to exploring the Quantock Hills AONB and Exmoor National Park, slightly further afield, or if you are visiting during the summer months, travel to Minehead for a day at the beach. For those visiting with a family of all ages, there are a number of attraction within the area to suit all; those with young children can look forward to a day out at Tropiquaria Wildlife Park and the National Trust owned Coleridge Cottage, whilst history buffs can enjoy Cleeve Abbey and the Trendle Ring. With so much to see and do, secure your stay at the Cookley Wood Cottage and look forward to the adventure ahead.
