This beautiful lodge is a haven of luxury right on the edge of the Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Bashford Lodge has a full width balcony to celebrate the most amazing views - you can see for miles!
The sunset light washes into the spacious open plan living-area.
Breakfast on the balcony is a must. An evening glass of wine watching the sun set is amazing too.
Staple Plain, at West Quantoxhead, is the most fabulous place to park up the car and set off on foot or on a bike.
What a setting for your evening drinks after a day out exploring.
The owners will provide catering for that extra holiday treat if you wish. So not only can you eat in style, but you don't even have to do the cooking!
This is the very sheltered enclosed sitting out area beneath the balcony.
There is a super-contemporary kitchen fitted around this corner of the living space.
This is the ground floor entrance hallway - the thoughtful touch of slippers is a sign of the attention to detail here.
This property is bathed in sunshine in the summer.
Each bedroom is presented to the highest standard, all with beautiful bed linens.
Another of the double bedrooms - you are spoilt for choice here.
All three bedrooms have super-king sized 6ft beds that can be made up as 3ft twins on request.
There is excellent water pressure here so that you can really enjoy a powerful shower.
The third wet-room is on the ground floor.
The three wet-rooms are beautifully designed and very stylish. Two are on the first floor along with the bedrooms.
This is the drying/laundry-room - with a separate outside entrance from the patio. Ideal for wet clothes and boots after a long walk in the Quantocks or of course, a wonderful horseback adventure.
Dunster Castle towers above this unique medieval town, a stone's throw from the coast.
You can see right across the Bristol Channel to south Wales from the top of the Quantock Hills.
High up on the Quantocks above Bashford Lodge.
The Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, shaded woodland, deep valleys, and wide open moorland with panoramic views.
You will see wild deer in their natural habitat - the hills in the background are the setting for Bashford Lodge.

A well maintained, comfortable and well equipped property in beautiful countryside. Would recommend as a peaceful stay.

We have just spent a delightful week at Bashford Lodge with family. The accommodation is excellent; clean, comfortable, very well equipped and superbly situated on the Quantock Hills with stunning views from the lovely balcony. The owners, Gill and David, are very welcoming - Thank you for the delicious cake Gill! And their two horses, Albi and Oscar, were a big hit with our 8 year old grandson! The location is lovely, so tranquil and peaceful but within easy reach of many places to visit in Somerset and North Devon. We were blessed with glorious sunny weather but the lodge would be equally nice for a winter break. I can thoroughly recommend this super property....

We had a wonderful Easter week at Bashford Lodge - it is extremely comfortable, very well appointed for self catering and our host so welcoming. The house is in a beautiful location and despite the weather veering from glorious sunshine to hail and stormy winds we visited many of the local attractions - the highlights being the steam train to Minehead and walk from West Bagborough to Crowcome along The Drove on the Quantocks ridge - fabulous views. We will definitely be making a return visit....
