  • "This property is well situated for exploring this area of Somerset and there is lots to see, do and visit on the doorstep."

  • "The Bower House was a perfect base and location for discovering this beautiful and often understated county -and region."

    Ideally situated in a most interesting attractive village with superb amenities. Close to several NT properties, wonderful coastline and an array of old atmospheric towns in close proximity. We were most comfortable in the Bower House and lacked for nothing. Our friendly hostess was throughout fully attentive to needs and generous with help and advice both about the village and the area especially with recommendations for visits to places of interest. A great stay -most enjoyable.

  • "Lovely place to stay, ideally located for sea and countryside!"

    Plenty to do nearby - National Trust houses and gardens within 15-20 minutes, sea 30- 45 minutes, craft centre in next village and delicious food at a farm 5 minutes walk!

  • "The cottage had everything that I needed for a very comfortable stay - it was so good I extended for an extra week!"

    The owners were incredibly welcoming and me feel like it was a real home from home. Cleverly laid out, space and light was really maximised. The location is great for exploring the local area, with a great little farm shop and Deli (The Old Dairy) just around the corner and Martock also in walking distance if you want a longer stroll.

  • "Due to Covid lockdown in Wales we had to find a last minute break!"

    The Coach House fitted the bill perfectly. The host greeted us when we first arrived and had laid out a very welcome tea and cake. The cottage had everything we needed for a very comfortable, self catering week. Plenty of information about the local area was available. Off the road parking was disappointing. The garage entrance is narrow and a car without a high chassis frame will scrape along the ground when driving onto the stones. However there was parking available in the main street.

    Great owners who gave great recommendations of the local area. A quiet location that is close to a lot of places, all within a 30-45 min drive. We would definitely come back to this cottage if in the area.

  • "Perfect destination for the coast and National Trust properties."

    The cottage was very comfortable and excellent taste and quality throughout. The weather was so good we were able to also enjoy the garden.

  • "The accommodation was superb, my partner and I couldn’t have been happier."

    Our hosts even left us mince pies and a bottle of Prosecco to celebrate the New Year. The photographs didn’t do it justice, a lovely warm, intimate space, extremely comfortable and well appointed. Loved the log burner, spent New Years Eve curled up in front of it watching TV. Just so nice to get away into the peace and quiet of the English countryside. The weather was truly awful, but it didn't detract from the quality of the accommodation or our enjoyment. We'll have to go back and explore the surrounding countryside when its a little warmer and drier. It really was a luxurious and relaxing couple of days away.

There is one bedroom with a king-size sleigh bed and an en-suite shower room.

Downstairs is an open plan kitchen, lounge, dining space with a woodburner and access to an enclosed shared garden.

Bower Coach House is accessed via the original coach house arched entrance, through wooden doors into a secure garage area, large enough for one car.

At the rear of the garage are steps that take you into the downstairs of the property.

There is no wheelchair access to the cottage.

There is also a narrow, steep staircase from the ground floor to the first floor.

Whether you’re driving, cycling or walking, Bower Hinton provides an ideal base for a holiday, with a variety of interesting and fun days out: Forde Abbey Gardens, Barrington Court, Montacute House, Tintinhull Gardens, Lytes Cary and East Lambrook should provide ample opportunity for gardeners and those who enjoy National Trust properties.
