  • “Everything was as described.”


    Facilities were very good. Only downside is that the road traffic is relentless which is only a few yards from cottage. Hot tub whirring and water feature help to detract from it. We think the bed was very comfortable and huge with good linens. We found the sofa somewhat too uncomfortable to relax on to watch a film or simply relax on after a day’s walking etc. It is too small for any average sized man. We got neck ache while watching a film as the tv is set very high on the wall. Other than these few points which some could be rectified the cottage was of a good standard with a good location.

About the property

Williton 1.9 miles.

Tucked away in the sleepy village of Washford, within the glorious green landscapes of Somerset, you will find The Retreat.

Renovated to a high standard, this picturesque annexe is the perfect choice for a romantic break to this magnificent part of the country.

Step inside this charming abode and be greeted by a warm and contemporary open-plan living space boasting a gorgeous shaker-style kitchen with all the essential appliances, where you can cook up a delicious dinner for two to be enjoyed at the intimate dining area.

The space can also be found hosting a restful seating area with a beautiful electric fire and impressive wall-mounted TV, an ideal space to relax and unwind as you snuggle up to your loved one on the plush leather sofa and watch all of your favourite movies.

Continue the evening with a dip in the luxurious hot tub that awaits you in the courtyard, before popping open a chilled bottle of bubbly at the outdoor dining table as you toast to making many happy memories on this unforgettable escape.

Venture back indoors and retire to the stunning first floor bedroom exuding light from the large Velux windows, and home to a spacious super-king-size bed.

The bedroom also benefits from a darling dressing room and a smart en-suite bathroom, together providing a wonderful setting to get ready for the day ahead.

Tear yourself away from this homely dwelling and discover the very best that Somerset has to offer, with tours of Somerset & Dorset Railway Trust and preserved monastery of Cleeve Abbey, both sitting right on your doorstep.

Be sure to pack your hiking boots with many breath-taking countryside walks such as Great Wood and Wills Neck, lying a pleasant drive away in the Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Spot exotic reptiles, friendly Lemurs and colourful birds at Tropiquaria Wildlife Park, or spend the day down by the coast in the harbour town of Watchet.

Wander the galleys of the Watchet Boat Museum and Washford Radio Museum, before heading to the Ancient Marina for a stroll to the Watchet Harbour Lighthouse.

Grab dinner and drinks in one of the many quirky pubs and restaurants that line the town, or head to Taunton to see the captivating exhibitions of the Museum of Somerset and delight in a lovingly prepared picnic on the well-kept lawns of French Weir Park.

With all this to look forward to, be sure to book a stay at The Retreat today.

About the location


Watchet 2 miles; Minehead 8 miles.

The thriving community of Williton nestles beneath the western edge of the Quantock Hills in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, only 2 miles from the west Somerset coast at Watchet. Intersected by the roads to Minehead and Bridgwater, the village is well served by local shops and pubs, with the attractive West Somerset Railway also passing through, providing a lovely relaxing trip along the coast from the popular seaside resort of Minehead through glorious unspoilt countryside - a treat not to be missed! Within a short drive is Exmoor National Park with its heather-clad moorland, wooded coombes and picturesque villages, home to an abundance of wildlife, or take in the pretty coastal settlements of Watchet, Blue Anchor and Porlock Weir. A visit to the historic village of Dunster, with its yarn market and ancient castle, is also a must. There is so much on offer in this super area for all the family.
