Holiday Rental House
Situated in the village of Combe St Nicholas and nestling on the edge of the Blackdown Hills, Smithycroft puts you right at the heart of some of the South West's most beautiful walking country. This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty boasts wonderful, rolling scenery, with walks galore across the Somerset and Devon border. The traditional thatched cottage feels as cosy as it looks, with an inglenook fire place in the sitting room and a breakfast room with french doors leading out onto the enclosed garden. The owners have refurbished the property to include little touches of luxury, like a roll-top bath in the en-suite from the master bedroom, so you enjoy a traditional cottage with all mod cons too.
