2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
Taunton, Somerset, England
New in 2011, The Woodcroft is a well appointed modern chalet on one floor with an open plan kitchen, diner and sitting area. Through the french windows is a decking area with amazing views over the surrounding countryside. There is plenty of parking and lots of open space to walk around in. A couple of minutes walk from the property is the canal and here you can walk, cycle,or boat to either Taunton or Bridgwater. There are some lovely villages with great pubs and a farm nearby where you can buy some local Somerset Cider. Lyme Regis, Wookey Hole, Clarks Shopping Village, Glastonbury, Minehead and The Quantocks are all within easy reach by car. The local wildlife on the Levels including Herons and Cranes is legendary.

Very handy for M5 and Taunton but also accessible to rest of Somerset despite remote setting. Some noise from the nearby main road at peak times but not overly intrusive. Good for quiet walks by the canal and chilling on the decking in the summer evenings overlooking extensive gardens. Elevated position provides some great views of the surrounding countryside.

Management response:

Thank you very much for your lovely and accurate comments about the Woodcroft. I would just like to say to any prospective guests, that once you have arrived, there is a key fob which will remotely open the electric gates from the comfort of your car. We hope this consideration makes arriving and departing the property as easy as possible....

We spent a week here as our son was at a cricket festival in Taunton. It was a great place for us to base ourselves. My elderly parents joined us for some of the week and it was easy for my disabled mum to get around the chalet. We also took our dog with us, who felt very at home....
