  • "We have just returned from a wonderful, tranquil weeks holiday."

    Garden View Cottage is beautifully presented in gorgeous, peaceful countryside. The cottage itself is exactly what you would expect a country cottage to feel like with all the mod-cons, uniqueness and an added bonus of the wow factor. The garden offers great space for relaxation or a good run around for the dog or children. The garden is enclosed, although it does have a low brick wall at the end of it, so if your dog is an escape artist I would recommend tethering it. The cottage's location is fantastic for getting out and about. It's close enough to the M5, so you can whip up and down it to explore Somerset and North Devon. Thank you Fred and Margo for a lovely stay, we will be back soon.

    Thanks Karen for the feedback. We are glad you had such a super stay with your lovely dog. We were pleased you found so many great places to explore and look forward to welcoming you again soon! Best wishes Fred and Margo Property Owner

  • "Loved our stay at garden view, the cottage was gorgeous with its thatched roof and we had lambs in the field at the back of our garden and a friendly horse and foal opposite."

    . so cute! The hot tub overlooking the countryside was great to relax in after a long dog walk! The garden isn’t enclosed though so we had to make sure our dog was attached to a long lead any time she went outside but she loved it. She spent most of her time sat in the doorway watching the world go by.

    Thanks Joanne, We are pleased you had such a lovely stay and that your cute dog had a great time too… Best wishes Fred and Margo Property Owner

    Lovely holiday & excellent cottage only thing to let the whole experience down is the good housekeeping bond of £350 still hasn’t been refunded

    Hi Andrew, Thanks for the great review, we are glad you had such a great stay. Sykes deal with the house keeping bond, please can I check this was returned to you by them? Best wishes Fred and Margo Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely week in this property."

    Ideally situated for our purposes. Dog walking and visiting family and friends in local area and further afield in Exeter and Bristol. Charming rural location and very peaceful. Our personal preference is for a bigger bed (we chose the twins made up as a king) and would have preferred a top quality mattress. Would certainly revisit. A welcoming and helpful host.

    Thanks Frances for the honest feedback. With the second bedroom, we wanted flexibility which is why we have that configuration. We will buy a comfort mattress topper to help with this issue. Best wishes Fred and margo Property Owner

  • "We were generally very happy with our stay ."

    The property itself is beautiful ! We had a very relaxing week, the owners were friendly ,polite and welcoming . We had small issues in that the property is listed as having super king size bed when the main bed is a double 54” , being that Im 6’7 and not far off 20 stone this was a bit of a squeeze so we actually ended up putting the single beds together in the second room to gain some extra space ! This in turn caused an issue as the ceilings are really low I kept banging my head ha ha so if you’re tall be very careful

    Hi Christopher, Thanks for the review. We appreciate the advice about the beds and have adjusted the description to describe it as king.. best wishes Fred and Margo Property Owner

  • "One of those occasions when the reality is better than the photos!"

    Beautiful cottage with modernised en-suite shower rooms, immaculate kitchen with all appliances and well-maintained garden. Great hot tub, checked and cleaned before every new booking and also during our stay. Very friendly and helpful owners live next door and were there to welcome us on arrival. Great location for local walks - and trips to North Devon (such as Exmoor) or South (such as Lyme Regis) are less than an hour. Wellington and Taunton, with all amenities, are only about 10-15 mins by car. Perfect stay!

  • "A wonderful holiday home with exceptional relaxation powers!"

    (The hot tub certainly helps). Fred & Margot are excellent hosts with a wealth of local knowledge. A very private, high quality property with beautiful woodland walks on the doorstep (hilly). Close enough to Lyme Regis for a nice day at the beach or Wells, Cheddar Gorge & Glastonbury. Great food available from local farm shops. Highly recommended.

    Thank you Amanda for your kind feedback, It was lovely to meet you all and would agree the location has superb relaxation powers! Best wishes Fred and Margo Property Owner

The property

Garden View has a hot tub and rests in a lovely position surrounded by its own land in the lower slopes of the Blackdown Hills, just moments away from Wellington town centre, in Somerset.

This picture-postcard, thatched cottage provides ground-floor accommodation with extensive beautiful countryside walks from the door of the property.

With private parking on the large driveway and spacious gardens laid to lawn, it is the ideal location for two couples or a family looking to escape to the country.

Dating back to the 15th century, this Grade II listed property can be enjoyed at any time of the year and offers bundles of character to those who admire beamed ceilings and inglenook fireplaces within a charming farmhouse setting.

Allow yourselves to relax in the living room with the toasty electric fire warming your feet as you sip a hot beverage, just what you need after your journey and unpacking of bags.

Once you are settled, use the kitchen to rustle up some delicious meals to be had around the dining table or choose to dine out at one of the restaurants just a car’s ride away in the town.

You can catch your rest at any time during your stay in one of two bedrooms, each as beautifully decorated as the next, one with an en-suite wet room, while the other enjoys a separate shower room.

Perhaps, at the end of an adventuresome day, you may wish to relish the bubbles of the hot tub while you listen to the sounds of nature.

The nearest pub and shop can be found on the outskirts of Wellington town centre, in an area known as Chelston Heath, ideal for when you are staying in this lovely countryside location.

Wellington town however, offers many more things to do including a visit to its local museum or a delightful saunter through its park, which is home to restored Edwardian, landscaped gardens.

You could venture out to see the Wellington Monument of an afternoon or even take a trip to the Cothay Manor and Gardens in Stawley, a grade I listed medieval house built around 1480.

Culmstock Beacon is also a must while you are in the area and if you like taking a journey back through time.

This beehive-shaped structure was once used for lighting fires to warn of any advancing enemies during the Elizabethan era.

It is also a wildlife haven and offers mesmerising views across the English landscape, especially during those late summer months when the bell-heather is in full bloom.

Taunton is another beautiful town nearby with amenities galore as well as its charming Tudor architecture and a 10th century monastery to visit.

Those who love getting outdoors can enjoy the wilderness and tranquillity Quantock Hills can offer as well as walking and riding in the Blackdown Hills, with East Devon AONB also further south waiting to be explored.

There are also some wonderful seaside locations around 20 miles away if you fancy a coastal breeze to blow away the cobwebs and the sounds of waves crashing against sandy beaches.

Garden View is the ideal place to stay for a bit of everything, a fabulous destination to base your next getaway in Somerset.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
