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 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.

    Beautiful cottage, with lots of lovely little extras for the dog. Good (and very quiet!) location, within 25 minutes of Lyme Regis. Had a great weekend, and really enjoyed the hot tub!

    Beautiful cottage, very cosy. The owners are lovley and welcoming. The cottage is about a 30 minuite drive from many attractions which made it an ideal location to stay. The home made cake on arrival and hot tub were a brilliant addition.

    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.

    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
