    The Old Coach House - E2226 sleeping up to 2 guests

    Relaxing summer evenings on the terrace, lazy summer days by the pool and early morning strolls through beautiful gardens. All this and more:
    At the foot of Grabbist Hill (NT) in the Exmoor National Park, these four beautifully furnished and well-equipped Grade II listed cottages are set in the grounds of 16th century Ellicombe Manor. Clustered around a cobbled courtyard they enjoy shared use of an outdoor heated swimming pool, with its own walled area and poolside furniture, and an acre of magnificent sub tropical gardens and 3-acre paddock offering views over the West Somerset Steam Railway and across the Bristol Channel to the Welsh coast. The gardens are a special feature of Ellicombe Manor, filled with mature palm trees, named exotic plants and shrubs and quiet corners with seating. Here, too, visitors may discover the ‘secret garden’ or enjoy a game of outdoor chess or other outdoor games.
    A mile away, Dunster, with its famous castle, yarn market and pre Christmas candlelight shopping, offers a selection of pubs, shops, and restaurants. Minehead’s resort attractions, sandy beach and coastal path walks are also close by. Golf, river and lake fishing, horse riding and wonderful walking locally in Exmoor National Park and West Somerset Steam Railway weekends. One mile to the start of South West Coast Path.

    "We loved everything about our stay in The Old Coach House. The cleanliness, comfort, warmth and convenience were just about perfect, and the welcome and helpfulness of the owners was exceptional. We definitely hope that we will return in the not too distant future. Many thanks to Keith and Bev."

    "We have stayed here many times and will be booking again for next year. This is a lovely location and the cottage is well equipped, scrupriously clean and the owners welcoming. We still find new adventures hopping on and off the really good bus service and would highly recommend this delightful cottage set within beautiful grounds to anyone, we have always taken our "four legged friends" and it is perfect as so many lovely walks are right on the doorstep,"

    "Excellent cottage to stay in. The owners were more than helpfull with ideas for days out, where to eat and things to do. Could not fault anything about it. We even had an enclosed paddock to run the dog. We would definitely recommend and can't wait to return for another break."
    Fiona – 29 Jul 2018
    "Lovely cottage in beautiful settings. The hosts were lovely and pointed out where to go, what to see and provided us with an OS map with everything we needed marked. They also loaned us binoculars to use to view the scenery and wildlife from viewpoints around the location. The pool was lovely for a morning swim. Dog friendly in most places, with the exception of Minehead beach."

    "Third visit which says it all,probably a fourth.Cannot find a single reason to critisise except no wi fi .ideal for dog owners, its .46 of a mile return from the house to the furthest boundary of the property.Seriously reccomended."
    John – 25 May 2018
    "Ideal location with walking straight from the door in the hills above Dunster. Walking distance to Dunster & Minehead. Cottage was spotless and comfortable, gardens lovely and relaxing and pool was a bonus after getting back from a walk or day out. Pub 10 minutes walk. Owners very helpful with loan of a map and tools for fossil hunting on nearby beach. Already booked for next year."
