The Chalet Somerset was completed in 2013 and is constructed from Douglas Fir. It is a beautiful one bedroom hi spec fully equipped self catering apartment with separate lounge/kitchen and bathroom.

There is a picturesque floor to ceiling gable end window and also a raised decking area for you to enjoy al fresco dining or simply sit and admire the wonderful views.

Our chickens are also an integral part of our family and we would encourage you to wander down into the orchard and collect freshly laid eggs for your breakfast.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We visited for a week during our 50th Wedding Anniversary trip, in April.

Absolutely delightful - both the chalet and its setting, and our host's family.

Idyllic Self Catering Retreat In The Lush Somerset Countryside - sums it up 100%

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful and peaceful location. Miles away from city noise but easy access to Taunton when you need it.

Also Exmoor, South Coast, Bath are only a short drive away.

Everything was as described and Rachel and Simon were warm and welcoming.

We'd reccomend the Chalet to anyone looking for a few days quiet break.

Great little loft near Tauton

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to stay near Taunton at the last minute due to a family member being admitted to hospital while we were vacationing in the area. We don't like staying in towns, so this was the perfect option, and luckily it was available for a same-day checkin. Rachael was extremely helpful and remained flexible since we really didn't know how long we would be around.

The loft was spotless and perfect for the two of us. Just 10 minutes into Taunton and the hospital, yet out in the country. The kitchenette is great for cooking simple meals or microwaving ready-meals. Having fresh eggs in the morning is just a bonus. We even had one that was just seconds out of a chicken--probably the freshest egg you can get! It is a loft, so there are a couple of places where you might bump your head if you're not careful, but it doesn't seem cramped at all, even with the absurd amount of luggage we had.

For those of you that can't be disconnected from the reast of the world: Although there is no Wifi (and this is clear in the description!), the cellular connection is great in the area (4G/LTE), so if you have a smartphone you won't be disappointed.

The only minor suggestion I would make is to improve the lighting around the stairs so that getting into the loft at night is a little easier (or, you can just use your smartphone's flashlight feature!). Not a big deal, and this isn't the right place for you if stairs are a problem anyway, since it is a loft, after all!

A delightful Pied a terre, not in the city but just outside Taunton in a lovely rural setting.

  • 5 of 5

We were in Taunton for business but don't like staying in town. Fortunately found this delightful loft apartment in the lovely Somerset countryside but very close by to Taunton. It was perfect for our needs. Clean throughout and comfortable bed. Our host were on hand but unobtrusive. The fresh eggs each morning were a real treat. We would happily recommend staying here for a quiet time away. We dined at the Worlds End which was a nice setting but mediocre food. We also tried the Blagdon Arms, I think it was called. Great ales here and pleasant food. I think we will be returning in the future. Many thanks to our hosts.

Magica location nella verde cornovaglia

  • 5 of 5

Una casetta fantastica in mezzo alla verde campagna. Perfetta per due persone, c'è tutto quello che serve: dalla cucina, al tavolo, al divano per finire con un letto affacciato su una bellissima vetrata! Possibilità di prendere le uova fresche direttamente dal pollaio :-) Peccato esserci stati solo una settimana. I proprietari sono stati molto gentili
