We enjoyed our stay in Court Cottage. It was ideally situated for us to visit relatives and friends in the local area. The house details clearly explained the many steps/stairs in the cottage so we were prepared, and as not so young we chose to sleep in the ground floor bedroom near to the bathrooms.

I feel that you should emphasise how West Monkton village is relatively remote and quiet at the foot of the Quantocks and almost walkable to Hestercombe Estate. Most enjoyable . Thanks

Beautiful cottage in a beautiful area. Extremely high standard of furnishings, equipped with everything you could possibly need and spotlessly clean. The weather was very cold during our visit, but the cottage was cosy and warm, with the added bonus of an open fire. Silvers Pantry in nearby Prockters Farm is a two minute drive or a pleasant walk away, and is a lovely place to eat. Close to shops and lovely walks. We loved the cottage and plan to return.

Lovely, clean cottage in a nice setting. Garden was a lovely sun trap.
Miss Fleming September 2016
Well furnished and equipped cottage in a lovely location with added bonus of excellent food pub round the corner.
Mr David August 2016
Excellent location and a very well presented cosy cottage. The pub nearby 'The Monkton Inn' was excellent and a special mention of the amazing South African cuisine. Walks were great and proximity to Taunton made it easy to get all supplies needed. A wonderful and relaxing holiday destination.

For two weeks the cottage has given us a spacious and comfortable home.Everything was nice. We've enjoyed our time exploring Somerset, the coast, Exmoor, Wells, Glastonbury and and and! Many thanks to the very kind housekeeping team.

After working abroad for several weeks I wanted a location to relax in front of a proper fire. I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Court Cottage, from the cake and tea on arrival to the well supplied kitchen and the overall high standard, including cleanliness, all of which were well received. The location is easy to reach, local amenities are within 5 minutes drive and plentiful. We enjoyed coming home to the real fire and a hearty meal after visiting the numerous sites in the region, with the cottage becoming a cosy retreat after busy days. The property is the first we have visited that we will be returning to, hopefully at least annually, a first for us and a hearty thanks to the owners and housekeeping team for enabling me to unwind in such a pleasant location.

We had a lovely relaxing holiday here. The location was good for access to Taunton and beyond,but was in a lovely village location. It was lovely to arrive home one evening to hear the church bells ringing! The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped. We stayed in the weeks before Christmas and we had a Christmas tree and decorations - little touches which really added to the holiday. We were absolutely delighted and shall return!

Court Cottage is a wonderful cottage within a very beautiful landscape.
Mr Longworth July 2015
Unfortunately, we felt that this cottage is past its prime and could do with some refurbishment in places. This cottage did not live up to the standards we had come to enjoy at other cottages we had stayed at through Classic.
It has potential to be a lovely cottage although if considering staying as a family, it is worth noting that the grassed area of the garden is quite small and the second bedroom (and both bath and shower room) are at the far end of the cottage to the main bedroom.
Classic suggest that cars can be parked on the street next to the cottage so that the driveway can be used as part of the garden.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review Court Cottage. We really are sorry that the property didn't suit you, and we know you've discussed it at length with the Property Manager. She has visited recently and feels that all is in very good order. The garden is as shown in our photos, and our description lists the double bedroom on the first floor and the twin and two bathrooms on the ground floor - we're sorry if you missed this when booking. There is space to park next to the side gate if you choose not to use the driveway, so access is easy. We do appreciate your feedback and will make sure that all your points are reviewed with the Owner following our regular inspections. Tanya, Customer Support

A beautiful cottage in a quiet and historic village and yet so close to Taunton (12 minute walk along lanes to a frequent bus service to town). Great for walks and runs on the Quantocks.
Mr Mitchell September 2014
Very handy for excellent restaurant / pub the Monkton Inn
Mrs Stutzke July 2014
The cottage is a very, very nice place, the Description and the pictures viewing here are reality. When we come back into this region, we will stay again in this cottage, for shure
Mrs Clifford April 2014
A nice place for a quiet getaway in a beautiful part of the country.
Mr Sayles October 2013
The standards of the 'refurbishment' of the cottage are bordering on perfection, however my only 'niggle' is there are no thermostatic radiator valves on any of the radiators which would enhance the comfort levels....as well as being more economical and therefore potentially less expense for the owner!
Mrs Fletcher June 2013
Great base for exploring Somerset, Dorset and Devon. We visited lots of places with great ease. The cottage it's self was very comfy, and the garden very private. Good food at the Jolly Monk.
Mr Schütter June 2013
You will not found any better!
Mrs Barrs May 2013
Court Cottage was a lovely central location for our holiday in Somerset. The cottage was in a quiet location within 5 minutes walking distance of the local pub. The cottage was well maintained and well equipped. A brilliant base for a holiday!
