Hoccombe Cottage Hoccombe Mill Lydeard St Lawrence Taunton

England: South West: Somerset: Fitzhead

Quiet rural valley

Set in an almost secret valley on the edge of Exmoor but only 8 miles from Taunton the Hoccombe valley is the place to unwind. The cottage itself has the feel of country living whilst retaining the comfort of a modern home. The modern paintings on the walls and the careful design of each room have been put together with an eye for style and comfort. The sitting room has french windows leading out to a terrace and the garden. The Mill house adjacent is the home of the owners who are on site if needed. PARENTS OF YOUNG CHILDREN SHOULD BE AWARE THAT THERE IS BOTH A RIVER AND A POND CLOSE TO THE COTTAGE. There is a ground floor bedroom with a bathroom next to it, so is suitable for the less mobile, equipped with power shower also.


Free wifi

Garden / Grounds:
Terrace from french windows in sitting room leading to large lawned garden and carparking.

Views, wildlife and local environment:
At night the only noises are the hoot of owls the sound of running water from the mill stream, and snuffling of nocturnal wildlife. On clear nights as there is no light pollution, the skies are inky black and dotted with a million stars.
