“A very comfortable, relaxing and scenic stay”
Reviewed 4 weeks ago for a stay in May 2018

We stayed at Tilbury Cottage for a week in May 2018. Checking in was smooth and easy. Matt was on hand to show us around and had even loaded up the fridge with lots of local produce that kept us going for a couple of delicious cooked breakfasts.

The cottage is decked out to a very high standard and we loved the split level which kept the living areas and bedroom very separate. The most amazing thing about the cottage, however, is the view looking out over the Quantock Hills. We spent many an hour in the evening sitting out in the outdoor area admiring it. It was also nice to have sheep wandering around, especially as it was lambing season and we saw a couple of new borns with their mum.

I would recommend the cottage as a great base from which to explore the rest of Somerset, including some great hill and coastal walking opportunities, the fabulous West Somerset Steam Railway, Glastonbury and Cheddar Gorge.

The local village of West Bagborough is small but has a fabulous pub (The Rising Sun) with an excellent restaurant where we celebrated my birthday. After a couple of local ciders, the short but steep walk back up the hill seemed easier than expected!

“GREAT RURAL BASE TO TOUR SOMERSET COUNTY'S SIGHTS!!”
Reviewed 4 weeks ago for a stay in May 2018

To celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary and find my English roots there, we booked a nine-day stay at Tilbury Farm. We couldn't have made a better choice! The cottage we stayed in was built in the 16th century, but had all of the conveniences you'd expect in a modern one, including wi-fi. And, like our gite in France, it was replete with farm animals, such as the sheep who were having their lambs the week we stayed. Our host, Matt Ambler, couldn't have been nicer. He offered advice on routes to particular sights, such as our initial trip to nearby Bath, which were vastly superior to our Tom-Tom navigation device. When staying in Somerset, you can't do better than staying at Tilbury Cottage!!

“Idyllic Cottage break”
Reviewed March 25, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

This cottage was everything it promised it would be - cosy, full of character and tranquil! It was the perfect choice for a long weekend away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, being able to relax in your own comfortable space or exploring the beautiful surroundings of the Quantocks! We're already looking forward to coming back to the property in the future!

“A gorgeous cottage and perfect location to discover the beauty of the Quantocks”
Reviewed October 2, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

A lovely, peaceful location with breathtaking views and a warm and friendly welcome from the owner. Tilbury cottage is delightful; very comfortable and well-equipped with every attention to detail including an excellent "welcome pack" of goodies to eat. We had a wonderful, relaxing 3 night stay and would love to return in the future.
Thank you Matt and family!

“Stunning location - Walkers retreat!”
Reviewed August 30, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Stayed 4days over the August Bank Holiday - Tilbury Farm Cottage is ideal for a couple - well equipped kitchen & living room on ground floor then bedroom & ensuite bathroom downstairs. Lovely stocked fridge with breakfast essentials that lasted our stay. The weather was kind to us during out visit, we sat out for breakfast, & then by the bedroom in the afternoon - early evening drinking the views in.
Great for walking & a nice pub in the village - would definitely recommend

“Beautiful”
Reviewed July 6, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Met by our lovely host Matt. The cottage is exactly what we hoped it would be. Modern facilities combined with exposed beams and a real cottage feel. The fridge was filled with all essentials and made for a hearty breakfast,definitely not from a supermarket. Quality food in a quality place.The farm is set high on a hill with stunning views. A walk up the hill outside the door and it feels like your on top of the world. Sat outside of an evening watching 3 baby foxes jumping outside the door,owls,rabbits and a deer too.Pigs on the farm were a bonus for us and they seemed to enjoy eating apples n pears we brought for them.local farm shop a must for everything delicious. Lynton and lynmouth is lovely and the walk from there to Watersmeet was beautiful. The tearoom was a welcomed sight at the end. Gothic house Nighshayes is a must as is Dunster Castle and town. Perfect.
