From here, two steps lead down into the wonderful, large, open-plan living space, where gorgeous furnishings and fittings such as olive bucket lightshades set the scene for the stunning views of the Blackdown Hills beyond. Upstairs are two large bedrooms (one has a zip and link twin or super kingsize bed, and the other has a fabulous kingsize designer sleigh bed). An impressive bathroom with a roll-top bath and separate shower cubicle can also be found here. Outside, the huge patio area has multiple seating areas and a stunning 6-8 person hot tub, where you can crack open the bubbly and watch the sun set beyond. There is also access to a lovely lawned area for games.
Set in the lovely village of Bishopswood, with the Somerset Wildlife Trust running adjacent to the property, you are only 5 minutes’ walk from the local pub and surrounded by miles of beautiful walks. The market town of Honiton is just 10 miles away and the beach at Lyme Regis can be reached within a 30-minute drive. Heading north, you will find the county town of Taunton with lots of restaurants, cinema, bowling and shopping, and within an hour’s drive you will find Glastonbury, Street, Minehead and the moors of Exmoor! Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 250 yards.

    Beautiful spacious converted barn next to owners property. Hot tub was wonderful and overlooks the meadows at the back. Owners friendly but not intrusive and there was a home baked cake awaiting us on arrival after a long journey with milk in the fridge so we could have tea and cake. Very thoughtful.

    We are a group of freinds from all over the South West and Midlands area and were meeting up for one of our birthdays for a relaing weekend and this place did that and had a little bit of the wow factor for us. We managed to cook a roast for the 7 of us, but this was a bit of a struggle as it is a normal size oven even though the cottage sleeps 8 people and if you went there for Christmas with the intention of not going out to lunch this would be a struggle as well. This was the only down side to our stay but other than that we managed.

    Fab place! Stayed for a birthday weekend with friends. The 'cow' theme, with pics, crockery to match etc, really up-beat and jolly. Super kitchen equipment and lots of space. Home-made cake from hosts very much appreciated. Super hot tub. Great time had by all. Shelley 18/01/20

    Absolutely lovely holiday cottage in this beautiful part of Somerset, Bishopswood with easy access to the A303, which opens the way to the rest that Somerset has to offer plus Devon and Dorset. A great base that you want to come back to after a day out. The cottage is beautifully decked out with open plan living space and kitchen and the added bonus of a jacuzzi out back. Great for a large family or couple of families to share. Had a fantastic time and will definitely be going back. On a scale of 10, then this is a superb 10 out of 10 :-)
