Thanks for sharing it. Varied walks from the door to the coastline and if you wanted (although we drove to Holford first) the same could be achieved in the beautiful Quantocks. Village shop in Kilve has small but sufficient range of food etc and the pub - The Hood - served us an excellent evening meal. And the nearby Chantry tearoom provided a pleasing cream tea. If you enjoy horse riding the Quantock Trekking centre at Bashford is a well run establishment offering good rides, with breathtaking views, for any standard. The bonus of a balmy, dry week was just that, a bonus, but obviously added to the overall enjoyment. Rowditch is well worth a visit!

The cottage is beautiful, very relaxing, the decor lovely , the bed is SO comfy and the underfloor heating was"toasty". We enjoyed walks over the Gallox bridge and through the forest, trips to Porlock and enjoyed meals at the Watermill cafe in Dunster. We also cooked some meals at the cottage and found that the kitchen had everything we needed. Can't wait to return. Carol and. John.
