WOODPECKER LODGE

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Wellington - Woodpecker Lodge

A 2 bedroom Eco-Lodge, sleeps 4/6. Fantastic countryside setting with wildlife and birdlife aplenty

Nestled quietly in tranquil countryside beside an established lake in the hamlet of Mill Cross and at the foot of the stunning Quantock Hills (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), Woodpecker is an exclusive luxury timber Eco-Holiday Home.

About the Eco-homes

These fantastic Eco-Homes are manufactured in Finland using the highest quality, slow grown timber with the most advanced manufacturing and construction methods in Europe. Combine this with the latest in cutting edge Carbon Neutral Technologies and a high level of luxury and you have one of those rare opportunities in life to have your cake and eat it.

Enjoying the countryside could not be easier as whichever way you turn at the gate you will find yourself strolling or cycling along miles of leaf lined lanes with rolling fields and the Quantock Hills and Exmoor stretching out before you.

Just a short stroll away is the sought after village of Kingston St Mary with its beautiful church, thatched cottages, mews and a welcoming local pub.

Sensitive management of the existing “neighbours”, badgers, foxes, bats and all manner of birdlife together with the creation of new habitat, has resulted in a significant increase in the numbers and variety of flora and fauna at Mill Meadow. Every new Mill Meadow Eco Holiday Home is also fitted with at least one bird and bat box and all landscaped areas are carefully managed to encourage and maintain the diversity of wildlife. The nearby Quantock Hills and Exmoor offer further exciting encounters with nature's treasures.

Current features of the eco-homes include:

* Ground and Air source Heat Pumps

* Under floor Heating

* Solar Hot Water

* Solar Electric

* Green Roof

* Rain Harvesting

* Low Energy lighting

* Efficient appliances

* Excellent levels of insulation

* Triple Glazed windows

The site can arrange a number of additional services (additional fees may apply) including:

Hot tub hire available.

A portable dog run – let your best friend exercise outside without a lead.

Loose horse box hire – ideal for those who wish to explore the hill trails and bridleways of the surrounding beautiful countryside. Access to a private course fishing lake.

A travel cot, highchair and stairgate are available free of charge.

Please note: This property accepts up to 2 dogs free of charge, for additional pets please check with the owner directly.

If you have ever wanted to see how a Finnish Log House is put together then here is an excellent opportunity. Mill Meadow is expanding its range of Eco-Holidayhomes with two new hand built lodges. Finnish craftsmen and Mill Meadows own carpenters will hand build the lodges and disruption to guests will be minimal. The work is planned for Monday to Friday mainly between the hours of 9.30am to 4.30pm. For more information please check with the owner directly.

Location

Location

An ideal base with lots to explore in the area

The property offers the perfect blend of peace and quiet with easy access to many amenities and attractions. Walk out the front door and the sound of birdsong and nothing else is striking - a true countryside idyll. Yet the market town of Taunton is no more than 2 miles away, offering a wide range of retail and dining options, along with a theatre and multi-screen theatre.

The Quantock Hills are also on the doorstep; the first designated Area of Natural Beauty in England and are ideal for more energetic visitors including walkers and cyclists. Also in the area are the West Somerset Railway, Hestercombe Gardens and for younger visitors, the Fun Farm. Despite it's central location in Somerset, the coastline is only 15 miles away, while Exeter, Glastonbury and Yeovil are all easily driveable.

Woodpecker is perfectly placed with easy access by rail or road. It is within 10 minutes of Taunton’s mainline rail station (London Paddington 1 hour 40 mins), and major road links (M5 Junction 24 & 25).
