Outdoor heated swimming pool

At the foot of Grabbist Hill (National Trust) in the Exmoor National Park, these four beautifully furnished and well-equipped Grade II listed cottages are set in the grounds of 16th century Ellicombe Manor. Clustered around a cobbled courtyard they enjoy shared use of an outdoor heated swimming pool, with its own walled area and poolside furniture, and an acre of magnificent sub tropical gardens and 3-acre paddock offering views over the West Somerset Steam Railway and across the Bristol Channel to the Welsh coast. The gardens are a special feature of Ellicombe Manor, filled with mature palm trees, named exotic plants and shrubs and quiet corners with seating. Here, too, visitors may discover the ‘secret garden’ or enjoy a game of outdoor chess or other outdoor games.
A mile away, Dunster, with its famous castle, yarn market and pre Christmas candlelight shopping, offers a selection of pubs, shops, and restaurants. Minehead’s resort attractions, sandy beach and coastal path walks are also close by. Golf, river and lake fishing, horse riding and wonderful walking locally in Exmoor National Park and West Somerset Steam Railway weekends. One mile to the start of South West Coast Path.

Lovely cottage. Loved the extra special touches: Fresh milk in fridge, tea and coffee bags and fabulous hot chocolate; dog bowl, biscuits and poop bags; Hand soap in bathroom was really appreciated - not had in other cottages stayed in so usually bring our own. Beautiful white fluffy towels and bath sheets - not a tiny bath towel! Beautiful white cotton sheets. Cottage was lovely and warm and plenty hot water and good shower. 5 mins drive of Minehead and Dunster Beach and Dunster Castle. The pooch definitely enjoyed the beach and castle grounds and the weather was warm and sunny for end of October. All the big supermarkets nearby if you need them, but the town had a fab local co-op and pharmacy. Would definitely go back. Thank you Leonora and hubby for a lovely stay.

Grooms cottage is very clean and well stocked. Good location, very close to some lovely walks. To far to the beach. Hosts are very accommodating and helpful. Couldn’t have asked for more.
