  • "The property was better than its description, there’s an enclosed outdoor garden area where we could let our dog Nellie out in safety."

    Phyl and Dave couldn’t have made us more comfortable. We had a wonderful stay that flew past too quickly.

  • "We had a wonderful week at Hill Coach House."

    The premises is lovely and light with all the comforts of home and fantastic views. A lovely thoughtful treat on arrival of fresh homemade scones, jam and cream. Perfectly placed for walks with the dog in the countryside in one direction and a five minute walk into the picturesque harbour in town of Watchet and the fantastic Pebbles Tavern. It’s only a short drive to Exmoor to the West and the Quantock Hills to the East and all they have to offer. Definitely coming back.

  • "Perfect holiday."

    Hill Coach House was the perfect place for the most relaxed stay. Within a short walk into the town & harbour. The accommodation is modern, warm and comfortable with every thing needed for a great stay. Great off road parking (a must for me). Made to feel very welcome by the owners. Already looking to book again!!!

    Any litle niggles were dealt with promptly. Personally I found the bed rather lumpy, but that is maybe a personal thing. The wi-fi signal was intermittent but it wasn't really a problem for us.

  • "The owner was very helpful and has a lovely nature."

    The cottage is a great base to enjoy the area, We did not use the car all week as there is enough within walking distance to have kept us occupied all week, found many walks with our dog, the steam train station a short walk away and also the lovely harbour. For anyone that enjoys a drink there is a cider and ale bar that will let you buy fish and chips from the chippy next door and eat it whilst drinking one of there many ciders in the bar. All in all a great week .

    . We will definitely be back, perfect home from home.. If I had one small niggle it would be the bed being a double, most people have a kingsize these days so going to a smaller bed takes a bit of getting used to, not a complaint in any way shape or form, just a preference.. :D

  • "Such a lovely cottage the owners made out of this building."

    Two spacious bedrooms upstairs with large windows and lots of light - even sea view from the master. Ample storage in the chests of drawers and wardrobe to store the clothes. There is also an additional wardrobe on the top of the stairs in the eves. Kitchen has everything you need with microwave, toaster, cafetiere and even dog bowls. Instant coffee, sugar and tea bags were provided and the cream tea on arrival (scones, butter, clotted cream, home made plum jam and milk) were such a lovely gesture! The whole ground floor is tiled with underfloor heating which is great after the muddy walks we had given we arrived a day after storm Eunice hit and we encountered the aftermath with lots of rain on Sunday. There are walks right behind the house leading to fields for quick dog walks nearby. Town centre and the fossil beach are 5-15 minutes walk away (depending where you go) and two co-op and a Spar are in easy walking distance. WiFi does work if you use the booster and access through the TPLink network, we had good download speed at 9MB so no issue for browsing to check nearby attraction opening times etc. The bathroom is very big with walk in shower. It would be lovely to have some shelves in the little alcove in there. Towels were provided and warmed by the towel heater. The patio/garden area is half stone tiles half pebbles and great to quickly let the dog out in the morning, it is fenced too. Unfortunately, our dog found the one space in the corner where the wall has no additional high fence and he jumped in the road a few times which is literally behind this wall, the wall is not low though, he is fairly big it seems :-). The owners said they are looking into adding fence there too though. A dog bed and biscuits were also provided. The owners and their little dog are lovely and very welcoming and helpful. Would definitely recommend this cottage!

    Very disappointed that this property is listed as having WiFi but it does not. We would not have chosen this property if it had been listed correctly. Having no wifi had a negative impact on our holiday as we could not connect to netflix nor mobile apps. This should be addressed by Sykes with the owners, as they are fully aware of it.
