  • "What an amazing property, comfort is to the highest of standards."

    The grounds it sits in are just stunning, so peaceful and relaxing, we would highly recommend a stay here. Some of the lovely places we visited include, Dunster Castle and Gardens, also Minehead Beach and Brean Beach, both allow dogs during the summer season. Thanks again for our wonderful break away, we will definitely be back soon for another spell to relax and unwind.

  • "A wonderful cottage."

    Beautifully maintained with gorgeous views. Everything catered for inside. The only problem we came across is we do not think the extractor fan in the main bathroom worked.

    Thank you for the kind words. We will look into the extractor fan - thank you for letting us know Property Owner

  • "Fantastic stay at Court Lodge."

    The property has been furnished to a very high standard and specification. If you are looking for luxury, comfort and seclusion, this is well worth considering. Hot tub was used every day, even on the cooler evenings, whilst listening to the wildlife and watching the stars. Thank you David for creating a superb cottage, we hope to return in the future.

  • "An excellent property."

    Modernised to a very high standard with excellent appliances. Location offers wonderful views over the Somerset countryside. Extremely peaceful. Nice hot tub and good off road parking. Location offers good access to several NT properties including Knightshayes and Killerton. Known to Tesco which facilities deliveries. Only 4 star rating because of a number of cleaning issues which I suspect was unusual and will be dealt with by the owner.

  • "Court lodge was a delight to stay in."

    The owner went out of his way before we arrived to help make our stay over Christmas perfect and gave us a warm welcome. The guest manual is detailed and very helpful. The views are simply stunning, the closeness to nature inspiring and the inside of the lodge is very comfortable with super bathrooms, and quality furnishings, the kitchen exceptionally well equipped. Watching the migrating birds at sunset from the hot tub, even in December, was memorable. The position is rural but didn’t feel isolated and the fairly short drive to the nearest shops a small price to pay for the tranquility of the lodge’s surroundings. A wonderful world away from the stresses of daily life. Thoroughly recommend.

    It is set in picture-perfect surroundings and has a great garden for dogs. The property itself is decorated beautifully and has everything you need (although we couldn't find a hairdryer? Not a big deal). The hot tub is a bonus!

    Thank you for your kind feedback. There should have been a hair dryer in the bedside table of the master bedroom. I will check at changeover tomorrow and update the information pack to make it easier to find! Property Owner

The property

Court Lodge is set on the edge of the small and quiet village of Bathealton in a conservation area.

Set within its own garden of half an acre, it enjoys a particularly peaceful setting with panoramic views across open countryside. This luxurious dwelling benefits from a stylish and contemporary, open-plan interior, two beautifully appointed bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, a spectacular garden with patio and seating, hot tub, lawn and far-reaching countryside views.

The property, originally dating back to 1847 was completely refurbished in 2022 to a very high standard with a contemporary extension, underfloor heating and double glazing throughout. Court Lodge is in an unbeatable location, easily accessible being 20 minutes from the motorway or local train stations.

Easy access to the beautiful countryside and picturesque coast is perfect for families, friends or couples looking to explore Somerset or nearby Devon.

There are extensive local walks on footpaths, by-ways or quiet roads ideal for those with canine companions keen to immerse themselves into the countryside. After a day full of exploration, cross the threshold into your new home-from-home and locate the open-plan living space where a crackling wood burning stove lies at its heart; unwind on the plush sofa in front of it and flick on the Smart TV and good internet access while the designated chef of the group gets acquainted with the fully-equipped kitchen. Delight in their culinary creations around the spacious dining table or step outside to the private patio to indulge in an alfresco affair while the breath-taking countryside provides a memorable backdrop. After dinner, indulge in a soothing soak in the bubbling hot tub, the perfect place to relax and admire the stars as they begin to fill the sky overhead. When the evening draws to a close, travel back inside to wash off the day’s adventures in one of the two sleek modern bathrooms ahead of catching up on your rest in the luxurious bedrooms. If you can tear yourself away from this idyllic dwelling, venture into the nearby village of Wiveliscombe where you can stock up on all of your self-catering essentials or treat your loved ones to a break from the kitchen with a meal out at The Bear Inn or one of the other many local pubs. Guests can also discover the beauty of Exmoor National Park with extensive walks, Exmoor ponies and wild beauty.

The delightful village of Dulverton is a 25 minute drive and the gateway to Exmoor with pubs, restaurants and shopping.

Visits to the beach are all within driving distance: the North Exmoor coast from Porlock to Lynmouth.

Surfers can head off to Saunton Sands or Woolacombe, or for a different contrast drive to the south coast to visit Lyme Regis, Seaton, Beer or Exmouth. Must-see attractions are woven throughout the surrounding countryside; find the fabulous wild gardens of Fyne Court, the impressive Knightshayes Court, the Tiverton Museum of Mid Devon Life, Wimbleball lake and the Museum of Somerset. Make memories with a touch of luxury at Court Lodge.  

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

About the location


Taunton 11 miles.

Known affectionately as Wivey, this historic market town is set in wonderful surroundings on the edge of Exmoor, in the Brendon Hills. This is a perfect centre from which to set out on outdoor pursuits; from fishing for trout on the peaceful waters of Clatworthy Reservoir or Wimbleball Lake, horse-riding at a number of stables in the area or simply taking a long walk through the idyllic countryside on well-signed paths. There are several excellent independent shops in Wiveliscombe including an award-winning butcher, antique shops, a gunsmith and the well known Court House, a striking three-storey independent shop that attracts visitors from far afield. The village is half an hour's drive from North Somerset's beaches, such as Blue Anchor Bay and, as the gateway to the Brendon Hills and Exmoor, an ideal base for walking and other pursuits in one of Britain's loveliest National Parks. The picturesque Exmoor towns of Dulverton and Bampton are within driving distance. A perfect holiday destination - peace coupled with good facilities and leisure pursuits.
