About Nicola Hanson
Nicola & Andrew Hanson have owned and run Woodcombe Lodges for over 13 years. Their four daughters have now left home but are regular visitors enjoying the fresh sea air, countryside and walks with our two border terriers, Archie and Millie
Nicola Hanson purchased this cottage in 2000
Why Nicola Hanson chose Exmoor National Park
A peaceful and secure site with fabulous views and the sea within 10 minutes drive. You can walk into the Exmoor National Park or down into the town of Minehead with its shops, restaurants, steam railway and beach in 20 to 30 minutes. The best of both worlds both coast and country or relax on site with the putting green, games room and play area.
What makes this cottage unique
The Lodge verandas and gardens outside the cottages are fabulous for relaxing and enjoying the views over the Exmoor hills. The Lodges in particular have the benefit of covered verandas to enjoy whatever the weather from breakfast to bed time.

Andrew & Nicola,
A note to say thanks for a brilliant (last) week.
The accommodation was great, the location immaculate, and the views stunning. Not sure how you organised the superb weather ?…but organisation and arrangements were painless..and stay very enjoyable. An excellent location, 'out of town' but close enough for convenience. Being able to bring the dog made it even more pleasant and stress free.
So thanks again and we hope to re-visit asap.
DR J & Mrs L-J
