The cottage was in a quiet village in the perfect spot to explore the surrounding areas. We visited Minehead on the West somerset railway, drove to Western Supermere, Taunton and a visit to Dunster castle is a must. The cottage was well equipped with everything we could have needed. We had a very comfortable stay and is a place we would like to visit again sometime in the future.
Lovely cottage, home from home. Very quaint but be warned of low doorways! The village was lovely to explore and find the castle ruins with moat and old mill. The Greyhound Inn pub was lovely with a very friendly welcoming landlord. Found a few fossils down at Kilve Beach and enjoyed some local cider at Torre cider Farm in Washford. Two negative points to note, that sadly spoilt things, firstly, parking was advertised as on the road outside the cottage but for the 3 nights we were there we had to park further up the road due to a vehicle already being parked outside, which was an inconvenience for luggage. Secondly, the 'Secret Garden' next door, had a VERY loud sound system playing music sat afternoon and evening which included karaoke. Such a shame for an otherwise peaceful village to enjoy a few days away.
This cottage is perfect for a family of four (2 adults, a 5 and 7 year old) and a dog. It is very cosy and has so much charm. It has been tastefully decorated and is obviously well cared for. Best of all we could bring our dog with us. The owners provide a welcome pack and even Easter eggs for the children. Would recommend one hundred per cent. This is a perfect location to tour Somerset particularly Kilve beach, Dunster castle and the West Somerset railway.
We stayed for only 4 days not long enough. The cottage is one of the best we have stayed in over the past 20+ years of self catering holidays it's how we like to relax,it was like home from home, nicely decorated cosy and comfortable would like to have used the log fire but it wasn't cold enough, so good in one way. The welcome tray was nice not having to unpack before you could have a cuppa. We really hope we can revisit. Thanks Julie for everything.
This was a wonderful stress free experience from start to finish. The friendly owner contacted us ahead of time with clear details of the cottage's location and all we needed to know,and has thought of everything, including leaving a welcome package of essentials such as milk, tea and chocolates!! From sitting in the peaceful garden to relaxing in front of the logburner it is an ideal base to use to explore the area. Our visit was too short and we will definitely be back.
My partner and I had the best stay here at Quantock Cottage.
We arrived late at night to find tea and biscuits laid out for us with milk in the fridge and dog biscuits for our furry friend! Before even unpacking our cases, we lit the fire and snuggled down for the evening. It couldn't have been more perfect after a long drive.
The cottage had everything we could possibly need - plenty of space, gorgeous views, extremely comfortable beds, a powerful shower and a sun trap of a garden. It was so clean and well presented with so much more space than we anticipated. The notes left for us about local attractions were very useful for us. We subsequently spent a fantastic day at Kilve fossil hunting followed by a cosy evening at the local pub.
Thank you to the owner, Julie. There is nothing more you could have done or provided to make our stay any more perfect. I am looking forward to returning with my Mum for another four days of relaxation in a few weeks time!
