  • “Walnut cottage was really nice. ...”

    Walnut cottage was really nice. Site manager Gemma was fabulous - great host and always available. Hot tub was the real selling point to this cottage, well maintained and a very wise investment. Cottage was mostly clean and well equipped. However there are one or two things to note. The garden is not enclosed so dog owners be wary that the 'quick wee' at night requires a lead for roaming pups. The grey gravel surrounding the cottages and parking areas is very dusty and makes a bit of a mess ...

    Walnut cottage was really nice. Site manager Gemma was fabulous - great host and always available. Hot tub was the real selling point to this cottage, well maintained and a very wise investment. Cottage was mostly clean and well equipped. However there are one or two things to note. The garden is not enclosed so dog owners be wary that the 'quick wee' at night requires a lead for roaming pups. The grey gravel surrounding the cottages and parking areas is very dusty and makes a bit of a mess inside. In terms of size, although this is a four person, two bedroom holiday cottage the beds in the second bedroom are bunks and they are small. Probably suitable for a family with little children. The bed in the main bedroom is a double divan with no head board and felt particularly small. It's also on wheels. So if you like to sit up and read in bed you will probably scoot across the room like we did! Completely understand selling a cottage on a website with nice photos but the little touches weren't evident. No cushions on the bed, just the 'no dogs on sofa' cushion, no throws, no little touches in the bathroom as per photos etc. As for cleanliness it was all pretty nice and clean but we did notice huge cobwebs on the skylights that had clearly been there for some time, the coffee table was sticky. Just little things really and nothing so significant it spoilt our holiday but maybe just not quite meeting expectation of a 'luxury' cottage. It is well located for things to do, most of which are at least partially dog friendly. Dunster Castle gardens was a favourite and the Torre cider farm. All in all a nice relaxing break.

Shells Cottages

The property

This modern barn conversion is set on the higher slopes at Shells, a collection of holiday cottages set in several acres of grounds in rural countryside near the Somerset village of Washford.

Complete with private garden and hot tub, this Washford cottage has lovely rural views and is ideal for a group of four looking for a relaxing holiday near the coast.

All the rooms are on the ground floor and the open plan living room of this Washford cottage is made attractive by the vaulted beamed ceiling, plentiful windows and laminate flooring throughout.

The two bedrooms of this Washford cottage share a stylish Italian marble-lined wet room with underfloor heating.

At the rear of the cottage there is a partially covered private hot tub, serviced daily by the owners who are members of BISHTA (British and Irish Spa and Hot Tub Association), providing an extra special touch for your relaxing holiday near the sea.

There is also Clay Pigeon Shooting, Archery and Co2 Pistol Shooting for larger groups to enjoy (advance bookings only, contact for more information.) The pretty port of Watchet, two miles away, is an ideal place to wander the shops, explore the coast path or visit the Tropiquaria zoo.

The North Somerset Coast Path provides spectacular walking, the historic village of Dunster offers a NT-owned castle which dominates the narrow winding cobbled streets of the village, and families will probably want to enjoy the fun at the beach resort of Minehead, a 15 minute drive from this Washford cottage, with a sandy beach, promenade lined with arcades and shops, plus a departure station for the West Somerset steam railway.

A luxury Washford cottage near the North Somerset coastal area and Exmoor.
