    We like cottages (as we are now past camping) that are beautiful and luxurious, have a local Pub that we can walk to and make us feel safe and secure. This property was off the beaten track, very safe and very quirky that was stunning with beautiful scenery awaiting you at every turn. We were a little shocked just how off the beaten track it was, if the weather hadn’t have been hot and what you would expect abroad then we would not have been able to access the house or leave it if we had, due to the single track road, suitable for tractors. We had 1 car with us this year and that was scratched by the hedges as it was wing mirror to wing mirror, with no more than a few yards in front of you of visibility because of the tall hedges. We didn’t let this put us off and we made the most of it by trying to find taxis to take us to the nearest pub as it was not walkable unless you went across fields and we were told by locals to take a map! This was a shame as we enjoy walking to the local so we don’t need to drive everywhere especially when we been on bikes all day and fancy a pint. The house was comfortable, a few cobwebs here and there and in need of TLC (broken wooden chairs and stained cushions on the patio) and the plumbing was an issue. We spent a few days fixing a toilet that leaked and a shower that stopped mid way through bubbles and lather and a hot tub too hot to sit in. But when mentioned in a first night review a plumber was called and came out straight away to fix everything so we couldn’t grumble, and were very thankful for the fast response, even though I had already spent a few days on the phone sorting everything. I did try to ring the appropriate people at the time and their shortness with me on the phone was apparent and unnecessary and a little upsetting especially when using help numbers provided to me. We had a fantastic holiday and made it our own, but it was a little disappointing to be ringing help numbers in the first few days and using my valuable holiday time trying to remedy the situation and being able to use facilities that we booked for. The neighbours were lovely, including their dog and they helped us with directions etc. The roads around Somerset were fantastic and we had great days out touring around and through Exmoor national park and into villages with lovely ice cream and pasties. The house was quiet and we would definitely recommend it. Sykes were very helpful and did listen, especially after a day of phone calls and folk being short with me and they helped to sort out any issues we had.

    The single track road is council maintained tarmac lane typical in any rural location and is easily passable by cars and farm vehicles It serves a number of residential property along the same lane but like any lane verges can get overgrown at this time of year. The property is not "off the beaten track" The local pub is 1 mile away and easily found by walking along the above mentioned lane, This pub is mentioned in the house information pack as well as the location and numbers of other pubs nearby - Sykes owner relations

The property

At the foot of the quietly beautiful Brendon Hills and on the edge of the Exmoor National Park, near the small hamlet of Waterrow is Surridge Farmhouse.

This handsome, detached Grade II listed farmhouse, dating back to the 17th century, stylishly combines elegant modern living with original period features.

On the ground floor, you'll find a smart kitchen/breakfast room with AGA and additional conventional oven, an excellent dining room with wood burning stove and an enormous 29ft lounge with fireplaces at either end, traditional beamed ceilings and original window seats.

The games room with TV/DVD, bean bags, table football and air hockey is perfect for rainy days or just keeping the children occupied.

The original half-turn staircase leads up to five bedrooms; the enormous master double with lovely views and an en suite shower room, two smart doubles, a twin and a single room.

Two further bathrooms complete the accommodation.

Surridge Farmhouse sits in a ring fence of 80 acres of pasture and woodland with its own Iron Age Fort perfect for exploring, or perhaps relax in the illuminated six person hot tub on the large south facing patio whilst taking in the endless views across the surrounding countryside.

Whichever you choose you're sure to have a fantastic holiday in a truly peaceful spot.

About the location

WIVELISCOMBE

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.
