Stable Cottage is a delightful 2 bedroom property built of local stone sitting on its own in our courtyard. As suggested it is the old stable converted to a private dwelling but kept some of its charming original features. It has twin beds in one room and a double in the other.It is on two floors with a central staircase. Outside is a small sitting are and patio where you can enjoy the sunshine most of the day. There is an acre (2.5 ares) of walled garden so it is very safe for children to play whilst the adults sit or lounge their time away in the many private areas of the garden.It is restful and quiet. The garden is also where the poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge is said to have written some of his best poetry and where he gained inspiration for more of his work.
The front of the cottage is covered with climbing flowers and is covered in roses for most of the summer.
Stable Cottage is part of The Old House which was a private residence dating back to the mid1700. Today it is still a private house but has been carefully divided into 3 holiday cottages and two B&B rooms.It sits in the centre of the delightful village of Nether Stowey with its little brook running down the main streets. It is at the bottom of the beautiful Quantock Hills the first area in England to be designated and area of Outstanding natural beauty (AONB). The walks around the area are stunning with views across to Wales, the Mendip Hills, Blackdown Hills and the Exmoor National Park. Nether Stowey is the beginning of the Coleridge way which is a popular 56 mile walk. The village of KIlvce 4 miles away is part of the north Somerset Jurassic coastline where fossils are plentiful. It is a lovely spot to observe the unusual strata formations at low tide and a magnet for walkers and tourists alike. Watchet, and old port with two harbours is a popular destination for strolling around and eating fish and chips in the late evening overlooking the marina. A little further down the road is Dunster with its famous and stunning well preserved castle. The village itself a little gem to visit and savour. To the east of nether Stowey we are within easy distance of the small city of Wells with its fantastic Cathedral and Bishops Palace. Caves to visit at Wookey Hole and Cheddar with its the famous gorge. For those in need of retail therapy there is Clarks Village and can be followed up with a visit to Glastonbury Torr.
