    “Fantastic house in brilliant location”

    We had an amazing stay here for my birthday in November last year. The owner was very helpful on booking with lots of recommendations on things to do and places to see. There was a cute welcome parcel for us too with wine and chocs which went down well. ...

    We had an amazing stay here for my birthday in November last year. The owner was very helpful on booking with lots of recommendations on things to do and places to see. There was a cute welcome parcel for us too with wine and chocs which went down well. The property is brilliantly located in a small town with a couple of pubs, a good indian restaurant and a couple of shops and cafes which was handy. There were some fab walks from the house too, also not too far from Glastonbury which we visited and a short drive away to the seaside so we spent a day in Minehead too. The house itself is ideal - a big enough kitchen with plenty of cooking utensils. Only thing that would have been better would be some pint glasses and a few more tea towels! There are still lots of herbs and spices etc that previous house users had left behind which was really handy. The dining room area is huge and brilliant for my big birthday dinner. The living room area was plenty big enough for us all, though it is decorated in quite a traditional mis-matching cottage style which is fine for us but I know some refer to this as old-fashioned - it certainly isn't modern. We personally loved that about the place but felt the living room would have benefited from bigger and comfier sofas for the number of people the house sleeps rather than the smaller harder backed sofas that are there. The big woodburner was a big plus though - and a must for us when we go away in the winter time. We loved the hot tub and made good use of it, though as the house is close to other houses, it automatically went off late-evening time which is perfectly understandable but if you're wanting somewhere to have a really private stay where you can do as you please (we've been to places in the middle of nowhere where respecting neighbours isn't an issue!), this is perhaps not the right place for you! We could have done with some chlorine tablets and indicator stick to check the pH levels to make sure it's fully safe but we asked about this and someone came round to top up our chlorine so it wasn't too bad, but staying for a week, this really needs to be considered as it can get pretty mucky if used by lots of people for this amount of time! The upstairs had a great layout - took a while to work it out but that's just because it's sooo spacious! The rooms are huge and most have big en-suites all with new showers. We loved this house and really wanted to stay. We are recommending it to friends and family too.

The property

A spacious attached 17th century farmhouse in the centre of Williton, a thriving community near the Somerset coast, nestled between the Quantock and Brendon Hills.

Ideal for a large family to explore the delights of Exmoor and the stunning North Somerset coast and beaches, this attractively restored farmhouse will delight all that stay here.

With exposed oak and elm beams, original fireplaces, and individually designed bedrooms, this historic farmhouse combines character with modern living.

The large sitting room with inglenook fireplace is a cosy place to relax together in front of the woodburner.

The dining room has an attractive bamboo floor, large dining table for twelve and door to a further small reception room leading to the kitchen where there is a breakfast area, range gas cooker and plenty of space and appliances for two families to prepare some hearty home-cooked dishes.

All the bedrooms are designed with an individual theme connected with the owner’s interest in meditation.

Most of them can be either twin or super king-size double and most have the convenience of en-suite facilities.

Two of the main highlights of this lovely property are the private hot tub and sauna, perfect for superb relaxation after supper.

The garden is small but private.

There are plenty of stunning walks and cycleways to discover nearby, whether you choose coast or countryside, with the South West Coast Path which starts in Minehead along with the endless trails in the open moorland and quiet woodland of the nearby Exmoor National Park.

The North Somerset coast offers quiet beaches or more lively resorts such as Minehead, and all offer a variety of activities, individual gift shops, cafés and restaurants.

Take a ride on the West Somerset Railway, which carries visitors by steam along the coast to Dunster Castle and Watchet or inland through the villages of Stogumber and Crowcombe to Bishop’s Lydeard and return back to Williton.

This wonderful restored historic farmhouse offers plenty of space for everyone in your party.

About the location

WILLITON

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.
