The Round House is a delightful and unique 18th century cottage, which nestles in an idyllic, private and peaceful setting by a bubbling stream and a wonderful waterfall. Found in the picturesque village of Holford, set in a magical wooded Combe It comfortably sleeps 4 in two large bedrooms. After a day of hiking or exploring the beautiful surroundings what better way to relax than in your own private hot tub, then get cosy in front of the wood burning stove, it's the perfect escape.

This delightful and unique octagonal house, formerly an 18th century smallholder's cottage, nestles in an idyllic and peaceful setting by a bubbling stream and a wonderful waterfall in a wooded combe in the heart of the Quantock hills. It is surrounded by it’s own garden and National Trust land, with endless miles of walks amongst ancient oak and beech trees and on the heathland, with its ponies, sheep and red deer. Reached via an unmade track and over a footbridge, it doesn’t get much more rural than this, and makes for a perfect holiday hideaway. Superb for mountain biking, bird watching and walking, it really is a little slice of heaven, and from our experience, once visited most people book their return.
Shop 1½ miles, pub within walking distance. 2 miles away is the fossil rich coast at Kilve. 
Spacious living room, overlooking waterfall, with wood-burning stove set in an inglenook fireplace. Fitted kitchen/dining room, adjoining bathroom with toilet. One step to a double bedroom with king size bed. Twin bedroom (with trundle bed under, making it a triple) with en-suite shower room and toilet. Both bedrooms have luxury Egyptian cotton linen and towels, robes and slippers. Bedrooms have interconnecting doors.

Lokasi anda

Holford, United Kingdom

Well it’s impossible to tell you about all the wonderful places to see and do around here. Just walking and biking on the hills is brilliant, but should you want to take the car, there are many places to visit.

Exmoor is wonderful, fabulous scenery beautiful little villages and spectacular coastline. Main roads can be pretty busy in school holidays.

Bath, Bristol and Exeter are well worth a visit if you want good shops (see separate section). Bath Abbey and Roman Baths are well worth a visit, but quite a drive. Exeter is about an hour’s drive away but it’s a really delightful city. The cathedral is magnificent and you can visit the tunnels which run under the city and are very interesting. The Princess Hay shopping area was re-built in 2007 and is very impressive if shopping’s your thing. There are also lovely walks and little shops and cafes by the river.

Nearer to Holford, Taunton is our county town. The river runs through the centre of the town and with the hills around it is very attractive, the museum is great. As well as all the usual shops and restaurants, it is the home of Somerset Cricket. (Think Sir Ian Botham and Viv Richards).

Our local coastline is not good for bathing, but Kilve and Lilstock have pebbly beaches with lovely views and are very unspoilt, fossils abound. Blue Anchor, Dunster Beach and Minehead are our nearest bathing beaches. Also Burnham-on-Sea and Weston-Super-Mare are not far. For surf, head to the North Devon Coast at Woolacombe or Putsborough.

West Somerset Railway runs from Bishops Lydyeard to Minehead. It’s a steam railway with many stops along the way, but the one at Williton is closest. This is a really charming little station, be-decked with flowers and having many old-fashioned features, even down to the luggage on the platform, dating back to the glory days of steam.

Tropiquaria in the old radio station just past Williton on the A39 is excellent for small children. There is a brilliant pirate ship, numerous climbing frames and various animals, birds and reptiles. You can even hold a boa constrictor or a tarantula if that appeals to you? There’s a café and indoor play area.

Another place that is a good day out is Watchet. It has a charming small town feel to it and the Marina area, with the steam train puffing by, on a bright summer day with gulls overhead, looks like something out of a children’s painting. There are numerous quirky shops to browse around. There is access to the beach if you walk up the hill towards Blue Anchor, about 200 yards. It is a pebbly beach and not for bathing, but children love crabbing there.

Also for children and families, there is Butlins at Minehead. It’s a fun day out with a great pool and lots for the children to do. Minehead itself is a lovely seaside town with the usual amusement arcades and bucket and spade shops but also some pretty boutique and gift shops too. It has a fabulous vegetarian cafe with a health food shop below called Toucan Whole Foods which I highly recommend.

Devon and Dorset are not too far away if you fancy a day out.

Somerset is a most beautiful and varied county, the second largest in England. There are so many different areas to explore, but I have to confess, our favourite is still the Quantocks!

Other things to do:-

The Quantocks have become very popular with mountain bikers over the past few years, you get sweeping hills, woodland, exposed heathland as well as steep gnarly descents.

The nearest golf course is at Cannington. Not particularly pretty and
Has nine greens and 18 tees. Quite flat, about £12 a round.

The nicest golf course nearby is Enmore Park at Enmore
near Spaxton (not far from Bridgwater) Tel. 01278 671244.

Sea fishing. Many people fish from the shore at Lilstock and Blue
Anchor. There are a couple of boats which go out of Watchet Harbour.

Fly fishing. Fly fishing is possible on Durleigh Reservoir near Bridgwater and there are various stock ponds in the Dulverton area on the edge of Exmoor. There is salmon fishing on quite a few of the Devon rivers, notably the Exe.

We love West Somerset and the unspoilt and undiscovered beauty of the Quantocks. We enjoy outdoor life and living here keeps us pretty busy. We run a few small holiday lets, a cottage called The Round House, Deers Leap Yurt & The snug. Any spare time we have is spent walking and mountain biking.
