With coast and countryside views, Hilltop Barn is ideally located on the outskirts of the village of Kilve, midway between the Quantock Hills and the coast.

Comfortable, thoughtfully appointed and well equipped are all ways to describe Hilltop Barn. Located on the outskirts of the village of Kilve, between the coast and the Quantock Hills, this delightful detached barn conversion is a real treat either for a quiet weekend getaway or as somewhere to look forward to returning to after a busy day of sightseeing. This holiday home has lovely views of the coast and surrounding countryside. There is a great courtyard overlooking the quiet country lane for guest to enjoy a drink or some al fresco dining.

During your stay there is plenty to see and do. Explore Exmoor’s spectacular northern coast, the highest in Britain, where steep cliffs plunge into the sea. You can enjoy fantastic walks here along the cliff top coastal path, with dramatic views of the coastline and out to sea. From Dunkery Beacon at 1707ft there are panoramic views to Wales, Dartmoor and beyond. Minehead is only 10 miles away with a beach, harbour and fantastic steam railway. Historic Dunster with its medieval castle (NT) is one of the prettiest villages on Exmoor. Porlock, Watchet and Dulverton offer interesting shops and tea shops where you can enjoy a traditional Somerset cream tea. There are many places to visit locally including Knightshayes Court, a splendid Victorian house at Tiverton. Shop and pub 750 yards.

    Excellent accommodation with high quality furniture and fittings including really good quality towels. It had everything you could possibly need. There was a lovely welcome pack which was much appreciated. Upside down house with bedrooms on ground floor but that meant good views from living area. Nit picking but master bedroom was a bit cold but nothing too bad. Has a nice outside garden but too cold at the time we went to use it. Would be a bit of a walk to Kilve for some but we did walk it. Just a few days there but weather was great and some good walking. Highly recommend.

    The directions could have been better. They state that the property is "just on the left after entering Hilltop lane". It is over 3/10ths of a mile and the directions could be more accurate. The property was very clean. Appreciated the "treats" supplied by owner. Enjoyed staying here.

    A high quality barn conversion in a beautiful setting. Views over the Bristol Channel to Wales, and walks from the doorstep to the coast and inland to the Quantocks. A comfortable and well-equipped holiday cottage , lovely to return to after a day out, especially in the changeable December weather. The courtyard garden is pretty, but not enclosed so young children and dogs would need supervision (although the lane is quiet, it does have some traffic and horse riders). The rental doesn't include any supply of handsoap, shower gel etc or Jaycloth type things for any in-holiday cleaning.

    We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful cottage. It is a very tasteful and stylish barn conversion with a nice cosy feel to it. It is fantastically equipped with high-quality furniture and kitchen equipment and a welcome pack of local goodies was a nice touch. Snuggling in front of the log burning stove of an evening was a particular highlight for us, with plenty of firewood being provided. Location-wise it's handy for the coast and the Quantock hills although Kilve is a pretty quiet place! We heartily recommend the local pub, The Hood Inn, where the food was excellent, the atmosphere lovely and the welcome very warm. We definitely plan to stay in this cottage again.

    Fantastic cottage, found up a typically narrow Somerset country lane, lovely location with sea view. Great base for cycling with secure shed to store bikes. Large well equipped kitchen, comfortable living room and we particularly liked the large selection of DVD's and books, plus the welcome pack. Although we didn't have a dog, the cottage is dog friendly with a spare lead provided. The only negative was that the mattress on the double bed was not that comfortable especially on one size, probably just down to age/use. Would definitely book again. Damage deposit returned very promptly.

    Beautiful cottage, comfortable with everything you might need. Lovely outside seating area. Very peaceful and great for wildlife and view. One pub and small convenience store in Kilve but sadly not a short walk so we needed the car for everything. Unable to let dog out freely from house as the cars that do come down the lane can be quite fast for such a narrow lane. No secure garden area for pets and definitely only parking for one car.

    Lovely cottage and location. Ideal for coast path walking or getting a good view up in the Quantocks on Macmillan Way West or the Coleridge footpath. Beach cafe is charming and the local pub reopens at the month end. The cottage was equipped with high quality furniture and fittings. There was everything one could need without feeling cluttered. A king size bed would be nice but not essential. Neighbours very friendly and helpful. A good experience overall.

    Lovely retreat in the middle of nowhere which is exactly what we were looking for. Some lovely views from the front room. The downside of the location is the hilltop part, but once you get over that some wonderful walks along the coastline.
