  • "Holly Cottage is a wonderful place to stay if you’re planning a visit to Somerset or Dorset."

    Ideally located for the Jurassic Coast, Glastonbury and many other places of interest. The cottage is beautiful and very clean and comfortable. It has everything you need and there was even a pint of milk in the fridge and some welcome treats! The village is lovely and we received a warm welcome from the locals in the Royal George Inn. The Sunday roast was amazing! And a scotch egg or West Coker Cannonball from the local butchers, still warm from the oven is a must. I cannot recommend this cottage highly enough. Myself and my family will definitely be back. Thank you Holly Cottage for a lovely holiday.

  • "The cottage is beautiful and has been restored to a high standard."

    It was well equipped and the off road parking was a bonus, albeit a right squeeze manoeuvring in and out of with other cars present. There were two major flaws for me; the mattress and pillows were cheap and extremely uncomfortable. Given the standard of the downstairs, this was a real disappointment. The second was a lack of washing machine. I personally would have sacrificed the dishwasher for one. When you are back from a beach walk with a wet dog, it would have been so lovely to chuck towels etc in. If those two points were addressed, I would be back at every opportunity!

  • "The property has been decorated to a high standard overall, very clean and has all you'd need for your stay."

    A cot / highchair was also made available for our stay. We did find the stairs a worry for little one as it's immediately outside both bedroom doors. We loved the fresh milk, tea, coffee, biscuits that were left. It was a lovely touch and so nice to be able to have a drink on arrival. A welcome book would help as the bin/s for instance were confusing and totally different to anything we have back at home. The garden with outside seating is a lovely touch and very enjoyable to sit out in. The parking is quite tight and with a big car we found it difficult to get out when other cars were also parked. Overall though we've loved our stay, would recommend and come back.

  • "Holly cottage is a little gem in a small village."

    I would definitely recommend this cottage. Even with the road blocked off due to road work it was not noisy. A lovely little pub and lovely residents. The property has everything you could want. We will definitely be back.

The property

A beautiful cottage built in the 1700s, Holly Cottage is an ideal family getaway resting in West Coker, Somerset.

Park off-road and unpack into this lovely property, passing the courtyard, ideal for breakfast outside in the warmer months.

The open-plan living area boasts traditional features, giving this social hub a historic feel, including bare brick around the windows, wood-panelling along the walls which has been painted an eye-catching blue, and built-in window seats, ideal for reading with a view across the street.

There is a log-effect, electric stove beside the sitting area to warm your feet in the cooler months, and a well-equipped kitchen to cater to your culinary needs.

Guests have the choice of two bedrooms, including a double-size with traditional built-in seat, ornamental fireplace and roof beams adding a sense of character, and a twin ideal for children.

West Coker is a small village with two local pubs, The New Inn and The Royal George Inn, a post office and a family butcher.

From here you can travel to Yeovil for a greater variety of eateries, a range of supermarkets where you can stock up on essentials, and a golf course, as well as walks through Yeovil Country Park and the National Trust’s Montacute House.

Close to Somerset borders, the village offers a wonderful selection of walks through Blackdown Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Cranborne Chase AONB, or there is access to the Jurassic coast at Charmouth, where you can spend a day beside the seaside seeing what treasures you can find nestled within the rocks.

Explore the countryside of Somerset with a stay at Holly Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
