There’s something for everyone in this idyllic location just a few miles from the Jurassic Coast, seaside resorts and attractions.

Whatley Lodge is set in an idyllic location at the bottom of a long gravel driveway, adjacent to a small river where an abundance of wildlife, including deer and kingfishers can be seen. This secluded location can be found in a small valley off the B3162 a mile outside Winsham village located near Chard in south Somerset, close to the west Dorset border. This detached lodge offers great family accommodation for four. Located within an easy driving distance of many great attractions including Forde Abbey and Gardens which make for an interesting visit, or for great family attractions, the Yeovilton Fleet Air Arm Museum and the Haynes Motor Museum are certainly to be enjoyed by all. Nearby, enjoy a cream tea at Hornsbury Mill, some Somerset cider at Dowlish Wake, or simply take in some great country walking, golf at the nearby Cricket St Thomas Golf Club or visit the nature reserve at Chard Reservoir. There are many places to explore in south Somerset, then venturing further north is the Clarks Village, the factory shopping outlet at Street, Glastonbury Tor, and further on to the Cheddar Gorge and Caves. The famous World Heritage Jurassic Coast lies further south with many picturesque towns and villages, taking in the seaside resorts of Lyme Regis, West Bay, Seaton and Sidmouth. Beach 15 miles. Shop 1 mile, pub 1 mile in the centre of the village and restaurant 3 miles.

    A beautiful cottage with everything you could possibly need, plus extra lovely touches which were much appreciated. The cosy cottage, woodburners, hot tub, excellent living space and peaceful location make this a perfect place to unwind and catch up with friends and family. It's by far the loveliest cottage we have stayed in.

    We got back from our week away at whatley Lodge yesterday. We had a great time. Visted a few beach which were each around a 20-30 min drive away. The lodge its self had everything you could possible need and wad a lot bigger than in the pictures. The hot tub was lovely in the evenings.

    Stayed for four days, ate, drank and relaxed in this wonderful cottage. Lisa and Luke are everything that you would expect in a Host, accommodating and unobtrusive where necessary. The whole experience was wonderful and the hot tub a bonus. We would recommend this cottage to anybody, so much so, we have already booked again! The home made cake was scrumptious and the essentials left in the form of a welcome box very much appreciated. Thank You Steve & Tina
