About Nipaporn Blackmore

I'm from Thailand, my husband was born in Twickenham. He claims to have broken his collar bone playing rugby but friends say he was at Hampton Grammar School at the time. We have travelled a lot and bought this property to get away from it all and relax. It really is a great place, we love it and guest reviews confirm that they agree. We aim to keep you happy and so nothing is too much trouble for us. We live about 80 metres away.

Nipaporn Blackmore purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Nipaporn Blackmore chose Taunton

Lavender Cottage stands in its own ground; it was a timber storage shed that has been converted and upgraded to a very high standard to provide self service comfort. Preston Bowyer is a fine example of a Somerset hamlet. It is quiet and relaxing yet close to Milverton - just 20 minutes on foot. We have first class access to all that Somerset has to offer and we're not far from Devon as well. Countryside or coast, it's all within reach. Make friends with our animals (and us), you're guaranteed a warm welcome.
