We found the cottage very comfortable and well equipped. With a private garden and seating for that outdoor dining experience. Set in the small village of Spaxton on the edge of the Quantock Hills. Within easy reach of a number of places of interest and the Somerset coast.
Hillside Cottage is a very well maintained, well equipped cottage in the peaceful village of Spaxton and we thoroughly enjoyed our weekend there. We enjoyed the pretty rear garden and can imagine that, in the winter months, the cottage will be welcoming, cosy and warm.
The village has a lovely pub and an excellent community shop - both within a ten to fifteen minute walk of the cottage. We would have no hesitation in recommending Hillside Cottage and would stay there again.
We used the cottage as a base to visit family, see the wonderful Haynes Car Museum, Yeovil Fleet Air Arm Museum, Glastonbury and Cheddar Gorge. We also visited the beach to see the fossils, and enjoyed the steam railway from Bishops Lydyard to Minehead and Dunster Castle. A week was nowhere near enough time to see it all.
The local people were so polite and friendly, and the cottage itself had more thoughtful touches than you can imagine. Excellent value, well done Sandi and Colin, and thanks for welcoming us to your cottage.
Hillside Cottage nestles in the village of Spaxton Somerset. The accommodation is well equipped with a secluded garden and within easy walking distance of a village store where local people make you really welcome. Plenty of good safe local walks and easy access by car to the main resorts and activities. The owners are to be congratulated on the care they have taken in making this cottage a true home from home.
The cottage is on a windy road in a quiet place but you are only 10 to 15 minutes from Bridgwater by car which has supermarkets and takeaways. For a bigger resort there is Minehead less than an hour away and there are dog friendly beaches in between. The cottage itself is cosy, comfortable and exceptionally clean and well equipped. It felt like a home from home. Whether you are sitting around the kitchen table or lounging on the sofa, it is perfect. The nearest pub is a mile walk and that is a lovely place too. There are lots of places to walk the dogs but you do have to get in your car to start with in the main, if you want to let them off lead. There is a lovely mile loop just round the corner that you can do on lead first thing in the morning. We ran a very hilly 5 mile course as well, which was great. Congratulations to the owners and Gary who looks after the place. Cannot wait to find an opportunity to go back. The information we received before we went was excellent too.
