Description

This holiday property is a well-appointed, rural semi-detached property, with its own heated swimming pool, secluded gardens and has full facilities for the disabled (except a hoist) plus induction loop, and lies in the peaceful Vale of Taunton Deane


Linnets is a rather special property in the heart of rural Somerset. Not only does it have its own private outdoor heated swimming pool, it also caters for guests who may have specific disabled requirements including a mobility scooter. The house is spacious and well-furnished with lots of natural light and does not feel at all clinical. The downstairs is completely laid out for disabled people, (except a hoist), with low level light and plug sockets. The downstairs double bedroom is located next to a spacious wheelchair friendly wet room with emergency alarm, raised toilet, grab rails, low level basin and two heights for shower (including moveable chair). The kitchen has areas with low level worktops, electric hob, sink and microwave set at appropriate levels with a larger main oven above. The large living room is fitted with an induction loop for the hard of hearing, and has wide patio doors leading out to the garden. Upstairs are two large bedrooms with zip and link super king beds which can be made up as twin beds on request, plus an extra single bed.
The property is semi-detached, adjoining the friendly and very helpful owners’ home, yet it is completely private with its own entrance driveway and parking area and secluded garden with large heated outdoor swimming pool to the rear (9.7m x 4.8m). The pool is open and heated 3rd May to 27th September (on request), there is also a large patio area surrounding the pool and plenty of outdoor seating, garden furniture and a summer house with many items for all the family to sue including sun loungers, barbecue, numerous games and and swimming equipment.
The pretty village of Fitzhead has a wonderful inn serving food on a daily basis, about ten minutes walking distance, and there is a play area for children near the village church. The West Somerset Steam Railway is approximately 3 miles away at Bishops Lydeard. Other nearby attractions include Minehead, Blue Anchor, Watchet and Porlock with its famous Weir which is close to the stunning coast and countryside of Exmoor National Park. Also the famous resorts of Lynton and Lynmouth, Valley of the Rocks, Dunster and Dunster Castle, are well worth a visit. While Tropiquaria near Watchet and many more interesting places to visit.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Linnets, and are looking forward to another stay next year. Pat and David made us very welcome, nothing was too much trouble. The facilities were of a high standard, clean and tidy. We had the added bonus of a pool, which was really nice for my husband having low sight, and his guide dog "Bracken"was made to feel at home.

    The cottage and pool were fantastic! And my extended elderly family and myself had a lovely holiday here in aug/Sept . Pat and Daventry the hosts have thought of everything, but if there should be anything that you require, they will oblige. Hope to be back again sometime.

    Lack of proper shower upstairs was a problem. Washing machine dangerous, being high. Dishwaher difficult to load. Heated swimming pool really needed hand rail. Water too cool and slippery surface a difficulty. Bedrooms excellent. Living room also excellent. Owners greeting and explanations good. Early contact and directions given very good..

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments and we will endeavour to answer them to the best of our ability. Regarding the lack of a proper shower upstairs previous guests have appreciated that a bath is provided with a shower head attachment at first floor level and at ground floor level there is a wet shower room provided with two shower heights which is suitable for disabled guests with grab rails etc. but also accommodates all members of the household. People have always appreciated there being both bath and shower facilities in the property. In answer to the washing machine being dangerous due to it being sited at a higher level this is situated on a secure shelf and can be loaded easily. This has been risked assessed in this position and has been passed as being safe. The premises have a standard family dishwasher as normally used in homes (I have same myself) and I cannot understand how it could be difficult to load. The swimming pool is a standard 32ft. long x 16ft. wide pool and persons are made fully aware of safety in and around the pool. A lifesaving ring coloured orange; pool fully signed on each sides giving the depths of shallow end and deep end; sign stating no running or diving; full knowledge given that there is no pool supervision on hand other than family/friends' overseeing; plus safety information typed in the file on hall table. The pool surround is covered by paving slabs with a slight ribbed finish (on recommendation) to avoid slipping as much as possible. The pool has a walk-in roman end at the shallow end but we will take your comments on board regarding the possible addition of a hand rail. Guest’s opinions are always valued.
