    “This cottage was lovely, well cleaned and great location.”

    We loved the little touches like the dog basket, toweling robe and slippers and the greetings card and gifts on the pillows. The owners were lovely and even helped us out when one of our dogs was not well and could not have done more. ...

    We loved the little touches like the dog basket, toweling robe and slippers and the greetings card and gifts on the pillows. The owners were lovely and even helped us out when one of our dogs was not well and could not have done more. The only criticism would be the garden. The bottom half was well maintained and looked really nice and loved the hot tub and front patio area over looking the sea, however the top part where a large area has been left to over grow with brambles made things a little difficult for our little jack russell. Although this was not a problem for the labradors, if we let out little dog off lead she could have been in that area for hours hunting (and would not be able to reach her to get her out)and there was no certainty that the fence had not been breached at the back. This meant that every time we let the dogs outside we had to put a long line on our little dog. If the owners were able to fence the garden around the new grasses on the lawn that would have made the whole place perfection.

    Thank you so much for your wonderful review and I can't tell you how much it means to us all. It was a delight to meet with you both and of course your four footed family members and I am thrilled that you enjoyed the cottage and all the little touches that we do for our guests both canine and human. I do so wish that during your stay you had asked us about the fencing as we would have been happy to confirm to you that the whole of the large garden is fully fenced and thus it would have alleviated your concern over your little dog possibly escaping. Your point is very valid regarding the briars. It was a conscious decision of ours to leave that part of the sizeable garden which is well hidden from the view of the cottage as a wild and natural as possible in order to encourage the local wildlife and provide them with a natural habitat. We are terribly aware that being in an ANOB & SSSI Area that we have contributed in part to the urbanisation of this precious area and therefore have robbed some of natures home for wildlife and by leaving a small untended patch we were trying to our bit for flora fauna and ecology. I apologies so profusely that this caused you worry and thank you so very much for bringing it to our attention. - Sykes owner relations

The property

Kilve 1 mile.

Even before entering this beautiful, wood-clad holiday home you will know that you’ve made the right choice.

This delightful, single-storey cottage is located at the top of the stunning Quantock Hills, within walking distance of the Somerset village of Kilve.

From the path leading to the front door, you will be able to admire the breathtaking countryside views, down to the coast and across the sea to Wales, where on clear days you can see the top of the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff!

Once inside this luxury cottage, you will be met with a quality, spacious open plan living area with exposed oak beams, floor to ceiling picture windows and comfy leather sofas, which you will want to snuggle up into with a glass of wine whilst the warmth of the woodburning stove helps you relax.

The kitchen is part of the living area, where you can prepare and enjoy a scrumptious meal in peaceful surroundings, and also available is an American style fridge/freezer and an instant boiling hot water tap for teas and coffees.

From the living area you enter the bedrooms with zip/link, super king-size beds, en-suite facilities, fluffy towels, soft linen and silk wallpaper; perfect for breakfast in bed before venturing out for the day.

A large covered veranda leads to the sizeable, enclosed south-facing garden with its flat patio area, an ideal place for a spot of alfresco dining or a morning coffee, and you’re sure to make use of the hot tub to sooth aching bones after a long day’s walking the Quantock Hills.

From the raised lawned garden above the cottage, you will again be able to enjoy the delightful vistas before you.

About the location


Williton 5 miles; Bridgwater 13 miles.

The small village of Kilve is situated in the Quantock Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just five miles from the village of Williton and thirteen miles from the town of Bridgwater in Somerset. Kilve hosts a quaint pub, Post Office and shop for all your general needs, as well as the Old Chantry tea rooms, which are set in an ancient monastery. There’s plenty to see and do from the village, including a beach, just 1.5 miles away, from where you may be lucky enough to spot fossils amongst the rock formations. Your first point of call is surely to explore the Quantock Hills, known locally as ‘the hidden jewel of England’. At 9,500 acres, there’s open moorland and woodlands on offer, along with an abundance of wildlife. The town of Bridgwater is also within each reach, offering several buildings of historical interest and an excellent selection of restaurants and pubs, as well as the annual Bridgwater Illuminated Carnival in November, where the use of over 20,000 light bulbs result in a mesmerising display of colour, sound and entertainment. Also in the area are a number of other beaches at Watchet, Dunster and Minehead, historical places of interest, such as Montacute House, Dunster Castle, Barrington Court, Cleve Abbey and Glastonbury Abbey, as well as the cities of Bristol and Bath, which are well worth a visit. A lovely base for your Somerset retreat.
