RAILWAY VIEW COTTAGE
Your Country Home Away from Home
The west Somerset Heritage railway runs from Minehead to Bishops Lydeard. The station closest to the cottage is in the nearby village of Williton which is within walking distance. The railway line passes a short distance from the cottage itself. When trains are running you can see steam trains and diesel engines from the garden and some of the upstairs windows!
A FIRST CLASS STAY
Everything You Need To Know
This is a delightful 3 bedroom cottage and garden set in beautiful countryside at the foot of the Quantock Hills. A short walk through fields will take you to the neighbouring village of Williton where there is a Co-operative, a delicatessen, an Indian restaurant and a few other shops. There is a bus stop at the end of the lane where you can catch a bus into Minehead and Exmoor beyond or to Taunton. Other local attractions include Dunster Medieval village and castle, Kilve beach (an SSSI site).
The house has gas central heating, two wood burning stoves for those not-so-warm evenings. A selection of board games will keep you entertained if you do not feel like watching the TV. There is a fully equipped galley kitchen with an induction hob, electric oven and a microwave oven. The bathroom contains an almost level-access shower. The hill next to the cottage affords views of a neighbours pony, rabbits and buzzards from the comfort of your beds. If you are lucky enough to visit before the trees are in full leaf, you will clearly see any passing steam trains from the upstairs windows or the garden. Check West Somerset railway website for dates and times of trains. The property is close to a dark sky area, there is no visible light pollution and on a clear night the sky is magnificent.
Access to the property is along a unsurfaced single-track lane. The 3 bedrooms, bathroom, downstairs kitchen, toilet/utility room, dining room-come-sitting room and snug are all for your sole use, as is the private enclosed garden. There is a pond in the garden so parents please be aware.
