Headford Farm Cottage (2809)

6.1 miles N of Taunton | Sleeps 2 + cot | Price per week £312 - £678

High up in Somerset's Quantock Hills, with some of the best walking this varied county has to offer right on the doorstep, Headford Farm Cottage is an excellent rural holiday base. This converted barn is exceptionally spacious with an open plan ground floor and a mezzanine sleeping level. Solid wood floors, lofty beams, lovely furnishings, under-floor heating and a wood-burner make this a great year-round choice. There is an enclosed courtyard garden at the back and two paddocks to the side where guests are welcome to exercise their dogs or sit and enjoy the peace and quiet. You can park outside the front of the cottage where a wide driveway is shared with the Owners whose farmhouse is next door.

For young families the first floor level bedroom has plenty of space for a child's bed and a cot – these will be provided if they are required. The working part of the farm is further down the road and so the cottage itself is in a very peaceful location. Exploring the Quantock Hills will be a delight as in some ways they are a little known secret. There are great walks close by but a bit further afield is West Quantoxhead at the coastal end of the hills – here the views are quite stunning and on a clear day you can see right across the Bristol Channel to south Wales and Barry Island. Kilve beach is a must too – an amazing geography lesson awaits you here, in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
