Overview

West Bagborough Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 country cottages with swimming pool and tennis court in the Quantock Hills

Honeysuckle Cottage and The Mouse House are 2 cottages nestling in the lea of the Quantock Hills. They have fabulous views of the surrounding countryside, including the Vale of Taunton, Exmoor and the Black down hills. This is a designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The swimming pool is shared by both cottages and is in a sheltered courtyard which is part of the Higher House Estate. Higher House was originally a 17th century farm, extended in the 1920s by Mary Ellis, daughter of motor car magnate, Evelyn Ellis. Mary was the first speed trial racing driver in the UK. The cottages have their own garden and sit in 8 acres of land which climb the Quantock Hills. You can picnic and enjoy stunning views and sunsets here.

Cosy, well equipped cottages with a helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

Honeysuckle Cottage has a really cosy feel to it, with a well equipped kitchen and delightful bedrooms. My favourite room was the lounge with two comfortable sofas, lots of cushions and an effective coal-effect electric fire which added to the ambience. It was also immaculate. The location is superb (good views) with wonderful walks up into the Quantocks, also a shorter walk starting along the front of the property which was enjoyable to do at sunset and a great pub within 3 minutes walk.

What really made my time special there was also how reactive Jenny, the owner, was to any query.

I have already recommended Honeysuckle Cottage to friends, and family.

The Mouse Hole is also really pleasant, open plan downstairs with a great mezzanine bedroom. Linen in both cottages good quality and super soft so I slept well in both cottages. I stayed in Mouse Hole the month before as I stayed in the cottages for several weeks between December 2014 and March 2015 following a 1yr sabbatical in Australia and a relocation from Oxfordshire.

Bishops Lydeard is the nearest large village with a well-stocked Co-op, a cafe, two pubs, a butchers, paper shop and a very good community church (Kings).

As you can tell by my review, I loved my time at the cottages and made the most of the location!

Herrlicher Urlaub im honeysuckle cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten eine tolle Zeit in Somerset - das honeysuckle cottage war perfekt für uns 4 (2 Erwachsene, 2 Kinder). Es war alles vorhanden und der hauseigene Pool wurde viel genutzt! Ein wunderschönes Domizil, die Vermieter Jenny & David sind sehr, sehr nett und zuvorkommend!

Wir kommen wieder! Tanja & family

Sehr empfehlenswert!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben im Juli 2010 drei Wochen in diesem entzückenden Häuschen verbringen dürfen. Honeysuckle Cottage ist liebevoll eingerichtet, ausgezeichnet ausgestattet und ausgesprochen sauber. Wir haben uns von Anfang an willkommwn gefühlt und zur Begrüßung einen Korb mit Cidre, Käse, Keksen, Apfelchutney und frischen Erdbeeren vorgefunden. Die Vermieter, die das große Haupthaus bewohnen, sind sehr freundlich und bemüht, ihren Gästen einen angenehmen Aufenthalt zu bescheren. Die Umgebung ist ländlich ruhig, morgens wird man vom Blöken der Schafe geweckt. Die Quantock Hills laden zu ausgedehnten Spaziergängen ein, die man abends angenehm im einzigen Pub (mit guter, frischer Küche) des Ortes, The Rising Sun, beenden kann. Der direkt vor der Haustür befindliche Swimmingpool, den man sich mit den Gästen des Mouse House teilt, lädt genauso wie der zum Grundstück gehörende, idyllisch gelegene Tennisplatz zu sportlicher Betätigung ein. Den Gästen steht ein eigener Garten mit phantastischer Aussicht und hübschen Holzmöbeln zur Verfügung, in dem man lauschige Stunden verbringen kann. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten hat man im nahe gelegenen Bishops Lydeard, wo sich ein kleiner COOP befindet, bzw. im fünfzehn Autominuten entfernten Taunton. Wir haben uns ganz wunderbar erholt und das Honeysuckle Cottage bereits fürs nächste Jahr gebucht.

West Bagborough looks out onto Exmoor National Park. Its true location is the Quantock Hills which was the first ever area of Outstanding Natural Beauty created in 1957 in the UK. The area offers spectacular views and walking across the 12 miles of the Quantocks which eventually lead to the coast at East Quantoxhead. This area is famous for the time the poets Wordsworth and Coleridge lived here. Coleridge lived in a cottage only 4 miles away in the lovely village of Nether Stowey. You can follow the walk he took while writing many of his poems. There are many beautiful old houses and gardens to visit, as well as enjoying the coast with its site of scientific interest at Kilve.
