My wife, I and Small dog stayed during October 2017. The cottage itself is immaculate - well stocked (beyond expectations), cosy and clean.
The cottage is set back from the road in a small conglomeration of other cottages, and almost feels like it's in the countryside due to the screening of noise and views that pretty much hide the town and look out over gardens and greenery.
Lovely shower and wetroom too, and ideally placed a short walk from the Masons Arms, a dog-friendly pub that serves great food and has well-kept beer. We also appreciated the good-sized back garden, where our small dog could venture when the mood took her to do so.
Williton amentities included a good-sized co-op (for holiday supplies) and a very fine fish and chip shop/pizza place. Didn't try the indian eaterie, although it looked nice. Otherwise there isn't a great deal there: we were aware of this, and used it as a base to explore the surrounding area and had a lovely stay. The Williton bakelite museum was interesting, but is due to relocate so may no longer be present by the time you read this.
The only (minor) issue with our booking was that dogs aren't allowed upstairs - although this wasn't specifically an issue for us, we were told only after we'd booked, meaning that if it was a problem, it would have been too late to rectify.
Would heartily recommend a stay here - a very fine base for exploring the surroundings: cosy, immaculately clean and well appointed.
Blanketts is a clean, comfy, cozy cottage with all you need provided. Located in a quiet spot behind the main road with parking just round the corner.
It was nice to have access to a back garden when you wanted to sit quietly after a long day sightseeing but a 'tiny' thought here, an outdoor clothesline would have been handy ( a clothes airer is provided though).
People friendly and the staff at local Co-op store very much so, enjoyed our chats with them.
Watchet and Minehead close by.
Had a lovely stay at Blanketts nice and clean and very comfortable very well equipped through out
Lovely garden too
Lovely cottage and very friendly locals. The owners are lovely and left us a great welcoming pack of goodies. The only criticism would be that Williton was too quiet for us, but we could not fault the cottage. The owners have made up a folder with all the local events/sights was great too and very helpful.
We really felt like we were 'at home' as soon as we arrived. The cottage has everything you could possibly need and is very cosy and homely. The village of Williton is a few short steps away, with lots of shops for your daily requirements. The shopkeepers are very friendly too. Days out are easy from Blanketts as you are near to the beaches and you can travel to Minehead on the steam train from Williton station. We really couldn't find anything negative to say about Blanketts and we will definitely be back to holiday there again!
could not have ask for any thing better what a beaut[fully cottage had everything you could want my little dog of 14 love laying in the garden the people there are so friendly we were lucky to have the hot weather would like to go back to see some more of somerset but would want to stay at blanketts again thank you daniel for such a lovely cottage to stay in
My title says it all. Excellent location, with village-type shops nearby, and for being central and easy to travel up, down and across Somerset for super walks in a fabulous countryside with great views. Most beaches nearby are quite pebbly but Brean is only half an hour drive so we went there for our dogs to run around on a mile of good/hard sand.
We immediately felt at home at Blanketts; with a great kitchen (dishwasher being a bonus!), cosy and warm living area and fab. sofas, beds etc were comfortable and the garden was perfect for our two Bichons to run around in safely. Fab. wet room shower with towels etc provided too.
Good communication with Dan., from booking time up to the day before travelling. The cake waiting for us in the kitchen was also very welcoming and a surprising lovely touch. Will definitely stay here again when next in the area.
