Tudor Thatched Cottage in Somerset, a cottage in Somerset (incl Bath and Bristol): Tudor Thatched Cottage exterior

400 year old thatched cottage, many original features, sleeps 4, 2 pets allowed

Unique, cosy holiday thatched cottage, 400 years old, Grade II listed, in recognition of historical significance. Built during the latter years of the reign of Queen Elizabeth 1. Awarded 3 Star rating with Visit Britain.

Full of character and antiquity, retaining most of its original features including: exposed beams, large inglenook with gas powered log fire, bread oven, spiral stone-clad stairway to an ancient door. It has a good standard of décor and cleanliness, fully and sensitively restored by the current owners. Retaining its character, the cottage has the mod-cons (including free wi-fi) for a relaxing retreat; warm and cosy during the winter and cool and airy in the summer. Free off-roadside parking about 100 metres from the cottage and a large public car park in the village centre (close to the cottage). Unloading/loading space available in the courtyard behind the cottage, accessed from the road.

The cottage sleeps four people. It has two bedrooms: one king size with en suite shower room with WC, and a second double. Each bedroom has built-in wardrobes.

The cottage has a full downstairs bathroom and separate utility room.

Up to two dogs welcome, free of charge – the area is full of well-signposted public footpaths and tracks where they can be exercised.

Large/enclosed landscaped garden, providing total privacy* - with natural pond, summerhouse/decking, BBQ – a nature retreat for relaxing quality time, and secure play area for children and dogs.

Prime location to explore coastal West Somerset and North Devon. 1½ miles from the sea and beautiful, sandy (and safe) beaches a short drive away.

In the centre of the attractive, bustling and vibrant village of Williton. Village shops (selling local produce), as well as old pubs serving local ciders and beers, are only 150 yards away. Between Exmoor National Park and the Quantock Hills, Williton is 2 miles from the historic port of Watchet with its new marina. The village is only half an hour’s drive from the M5 motorway, exiting either at Taunton or Bridgwater, with the A39 running through it on towards Minehead.

The tranquil scenery of the Quantock and Brendon Hills, and the breathtaking valleys of Exmoor National Park (where the high land meets the sea), make it an ideal holiday for walkers and hikers. Outdoor pursuits of fishing, golf, horse-riding, walking, fishing and sailing are only a short drive.

Attractions in the immediate area include: Dunster Castle and medieval village (National Trust), West Somerset Steam Railway (with Williton Station lower down the street), Cleve Abbey (English Heritage), Minehead, Porlock, Lynton and Lynmouth etc.
