Description

A cosy cottage for 4 in central Somerset making this the ideal location for exploring the whole area and beyond.

The Coach House @ The Old Rectory is perfect for a romantic getaway for couples, lying in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the Blackdown Hills, between Chard in the south and Taunton in the north. Formerly an Edwardian Coaching House built to house the horses of Reverend Lance in 1905 and set in the grounds of The Old Rectory and the owner’s home, it has been lovingly restored into a cosy two bedroomed cottage. It is stylish, with many original features retained, yet it offers all the modern creatures comfort, such as a well-equipped kitchen with granite worktops, and a lovely raised mezzanine living area which resembles an original horse loose box and accommodates the original hay and water feeder. If not enjoying the beautiful cottage, countryside and surroundings, this location is ideal for dog walking or simply taking in the wildlife and scenery, with much to enjoy within easy driving. There are many historic houses in the area, such as Montacute House and Gardens, Forde Abbey and Gardens, Barrington Court and Hestercombe Gardens, or, guests can drive to Glastonbury Tor for an exhilarating walk to the top with some magnificent views of Somerset, perhaps calling in at The Clarkes Factory Village, Wells Cathedral and Palace. The Quantocks and Exmoor National Park are within easy driving and for a trip back in time, travel from Taunton along the West Somerset Steam Railway to Minehead. Going south, visit West Dorset and Devon, maybe spending a day or two exploring the World Heritage Jurassic coastal resorts of Sidmouth, Seaton and Lyme Regis. The county town of Taunton is also well worth a visit, with its many shops, restaurants and places of interest. Beach 15 miles. Shop 6 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    Sal and Neil are truly the best and kindest hosts we have ever come across. We stayed at the Coach House and had the greatest time, there was everything there that you could possibly need and the whole place was finished to a great standard and very cosy and warm. At the end of our holiday we were actually snowed in and Sal and Neil kindly supplied us with provisions to see us through and offered to let us stay a couple of extra nights until we could drive home. We cannot recommend this place enough and really look forward to coming back very soon

    A lovely place to stay - very well decorated, with everything you could need, plus the added bonus of bathtubs in the bedrooms! The hosts are very friendly and helpful, and The Coach House is in easy driving distance of lots of places to visit. We had a great few days.

    A wonderful short stay; the perfect cottage in a lovely setting. Everything we could need was provided with little extras to make us feel pampered. The hosts have made every effort to provide for the comfort of guests.

    We arrived at the Coach House on 29/9/17 it was beyond our expectations. This cottage is stunning and we enjoyed everyday of our holiday at the Coach House. When we arrived there was a lovely, hamper waiting for us in the kitchen area. The owners had been very thoughtful leaving this for us with all the basics such as bread and milk plus little luxuries, such as wine and chocolate 🍫 The cottage was very clean and tidy and you can get to some lovely, places and National Trust properties in the area. We, will defiantly be returning and would recommend this property.
