    “We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay for a week away.”

    The cottage was perfect. And even with the current COVID issues, it was still cosy and welcoming. It has all the standard facilities you would expect, and was very clean. The beds were really comfy, But could have done with thicker duvet covers, but we took blankets in case we got chilly. It’s within driving distance to most popular places, such as Lyme Regis, Bridport and west bay, which were all within a half hour drive away. The only small downside to it is the access.

    The cottage was perfect. And even with the current COVID issues, it was still cosy and welcoming. It has all the standard facilities you would expect, and was very clean. The beds were really comfy, But could have done with thicker duvet covers, but we took blankets in case we got chilly. It’s within driving distance to most popular places, such as Lyme Regis, Bridport and west bay, which were all within a half hour drive away. The only small downside to it is the access. I have a Toyota CHR, and I had to drive extremely carefully down the lane, even with my wing mirrors in I had very little room for manœuvre. Anyone with a 4x4, i.e evoke or bigger, would have difficulty gaining access to the property. Having said that, once your used to the width of the lane, it becomes easier! All in all, we had a brilliant stay, and would recommend anyone to visit this quaint cottage and village. Thank you to Mrs Dawson, for making it as homely as possible given the current situation. We will definitely return

The property

A charming, semi-detached cottage, dating back to 1880, tucked away down a little single-track lane within the South Somerset village of Tatworth.

The village is also known as South Chard and is just three miles from the town of Chard itself, near the borders of both Dorset and Devon.

This lovely period cottage has been renovated to an extremely good standard, offering a delightfully comfortable home-from-home in Somerset.

It has two bedrooms with windows overlooking the adjacent little lane, a bathroom where you can enjoy a soak after a long day outside, and a well-equipped, narrow galley kitchen, access from the dining room down two steps.

The dining room has a warming, woodburner-style gas fire and a TV, meaning it can double up as a social space once dinner is over.

The cosy sitting room has stairs to the first floor and features a warming open fire providing a further place for your group to socialise.

Outside, there's a small private sitting area at the front and a private courtyard at the rear of the cottage, beside the little lane.

When the sun is shining, you can sit out here with a book, or enjoy refreshments whilst you discuss your day’s activities.

Close by are lovely rural walks to explore, whilst a short drive takes you into the nearby town of Chard, which offers an interesting selection of shops, pubs and restaurants.

There are several historic houses and beautiful gardens to visit within an easy drive, including Barrington Court, Forde Abbey and Montecute House.

Alternatively take the route south to the market town of Axminster, or take your buckets and spades and enjoy a fresh fish supper at the charming seaside resort of Lyme Regis.

A superb holiday cottage in a wonderful village location, offering a comfortable and convenient base for enjoying South Somerset, East Devon and West Dorset.

Note: This property is adjacent to Ref. 14229, together they sleep 9.

About the location

TATWORTH

Chard 3 miles.

The delightful Somerset village of Tatworth, sometimes known as South Chard, is quietly situated close to the borders of both Devon and Dorset. There are many attractive properties locally, including ancient cob and thatched houses, and there are many local walks and cycle routes close by. The nearby lively town of Chard, just three miles away, offers a good selection of shops and a variety of restaurants and inns. The surrounding countryside close to the Chard reservoir offers an interesting habitat for wildlife and birds, a super place for nature lovers to spend time. Whilst there's a wealth of interesting country houses and gardens to visit nearby, including the National Trust's Barrington Court, Montecute House and Forde Abbey. Alternatively, take the easy drive to Dorset and Devon’s scenic Jurassic Coast or the short drives to Lyme Regis, West Bay, Sidmouth and Beer. An interesting holiday base at any time of the year.
