We have just returned from hillside cottage and what a fantastic week we have had the cottage is one of the nicest we have stayed in great location and the view over the country side is superb the cottage itself was lovely extremely clean and very well equipped especially the kitchen we especially liked the private sunny garden and had many a meal outside its so quaint many places to visit we must return at some point there is so much to see and most definitely return to hillside.

“Warm and cosy with all you need for a lovely break.”
Reviewed 30 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Lots of nice walks and viewsinthe Quantocks. We had a lovely dog walk from pretty Quantoxhead down to the coastal path. We wandered along the sea line, not for the faint hearted, towards Chantry. Look for the quaint tea gardens. Here you can enjoy lovely traditional food. I had tomato and sweet potato soup with lovely bread, absolutely scrumptious, best ever. My better half tucked into a cream tea. Finished the round walk with a stroll back to the car along a footpath through open fields.
Dunster castle , Weston S. Mare and Sands bay were enjoyed.
An enjoyable visit to Taunton was topped with our lunch. Try and find "Loafers" near the centre. They are tucked away near the end of a small shopping arcade. They do a wonderful selection of lovely take away food. The choices available are vast. The biggest problem is choosing, and it is healthy and tasty. lovely staff also.
Back to Spaxton. Lots of lanes. The cottage is best approached from Bridgewater from West st, just past Morrisons on the Broadway.

Reviewed 2 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Beautiful little cottage with everything you could ever need in it. My dog loved the garden and it was totally doggy friendly.
We will definitely be booking to stay again, thank you for providing a wonderful base for my holiday.

“Lovely holiday in a delightful cottage”
Reviewed 9 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We arrived fairly late after a long-ish journey to find a lovely cottage - a welcome pack, which included tea, coffee, milk, biscuits & chocolates, had been left for us and was very welcome indeed. A designated parking space has fairly recently (I believe) been created in the front garden - this is very useful as the terrace of houses, of which Hillside Cottage is a part, got quite busy and it would have been difficult to park on the narrow road otherwise. There is also the facility to charge an electric car if you have one! The cottage is very comfortable and nicely decorated. There's also a washing machine and dishwasher; the fridge is on the small side but it was ok for us. The wood burning stove was lovely - the first basket of logs & kindling being free with a charge for additional logs used which is fair enough. The bedrooms are a nice size and the beds comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped. Mobile reception isn't great - there are a couple of spots in the cottage where you can get a signal but this is mentioned in the cottage guide. The Wi-Fi is very useful.
Spaxton is a lovely quiet village and, as it has no street lights, is good if you want to check out the night sky. The village has a community shop and there are plenty of supermarkets in Bridgewater, about 6 miles away. Hillside Cottage is very well placed for exploring Exmoor & the coast and I would definitely recommend it.
