About Penelope Maerten
I actually live in Switzerland with my Family and we love to come and stay at My Cottage (Family Home) every year. My Daughter loves to go riding on The Quantocks. l enjoy taking the Bookings (to have that friendly contact with people that will be staying in my Cottage). I have a local family who take care of Moonfleat and my Guests. Am very fortunate to have a friendly family who keep their Horse in My back Paddock . Moonfleat holds a lot of sentimental value, as it was my late Mother's home from when we moved there in the early 80s.
Penelope Maerten purchased this Cottage in 1982
Why Penelope Maerten chose Taunton
It was always my family Dream to move to the West Country. Being a horsey family and having 2 Boarder Collies, Moonfleat seemed to fit the picture. Well am glad l did. l have some wonderfull memories to fall back on. As the years have gone by many improvements have been made to the Cottage itself without spoiling its charm.
What makes this Cottage unique
The most enjoyable thing that comes to my mind is the Breathtaking views from Moonfleat and the joy of the Sunset which have been able to catch some evenings. When l close my eyes the twittering of all the different species of birds.

A very pleasant cottage
We spent a few days in Moonfleet Cottage and enjoyed every minute of it. We felt very welcomed and really appreciated the quietness of the place. The cottage itself is well equipped, clean and cosy. It is also really well situated, near Dunster Castle, Cleeve Abbey and several coastal paths. We shall certainly come back again.
Lovely relaxing break
Lovely area. Cottage bigger than expected. Very quirky, which we love. Well equipped. My hubby managed to park the car in the carport just about. Very warm especially with the log burner.
Lovely little character cottage!
Lovely stay at Moonfleat on a little Lane which took you straight up to the Quantocks with beautiful, stunning scenery. Also close to the coastal walks. Couldn't have been any better and we all loved it. Only wish we could have stayed longer. Comfy beds, lovely little inglenook in the front room and very well equipped kitchen. Home from home. We'll be talking about our stay for a long, long time! 😊�
Two wonderful days.
We loved our short stay in this well-equipped and clean cottage. Would definitely recommend it to others.
Relaxing atmosphere in a beautiful spot
I've stayed a few times at Moonfleat. It is a home from home, welcoming and comfortable, and has everything you need for your stay. It's Penny's family home and this reflects in every bit of the cottage, it's loved and looked after perfectly. The top garden has views across the Somerset coastline, the Welsh coast can be seen in the day and at night with the twinkling lights, Cardiff Airport is really clear at night. The garden's enclosed and dog friendly. The little orchard is lovely and my little dog loves running through it. The area is full of places to visit, Dunster is gorgeous (although I am bias as my family come from there). There are no end of pubs serving good food. For a drive out, The Rest and Be Thankful out at Wheddon Cross, serves excellent food and the staff are friendly. Sunday dinners are good at the Badgers Holt in Bridgetown (on the way to Dulverton). I really can't fault Moonfleat apart from the fact that I never want to leave
