Court Cottage lies at the heart of West Monkton, a peaceful Somerset village, below the beautiful Quantock Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, above the Vale of Taunton towards the Somerset coast. Originally converted from the stable block of a country house, the cottage is a lovely Grade II Listed home. Two sets of French windows open onto the large, fully enclosed garden – which includes a sheltered sunny patio – giving the interior a bright, friendly feel. This welcoming property has an open fire with a stone surround, beautiful solid oak floors, hand-crafted oak doors and the flexibility of a double and a twin bedroom. This peaceful setting near Taunton with easy road access makes a perfect holiday base.
Explore Somerset’s unique landscapes from this base, from Exmoor and the Quantocks to the Somerset Levels and the Mendips. There are some unique spots along the north Somerset coast as well – Kilve is well worth a visit, a fascinating rocky beach within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is a very easy route from Taunton into south Somerset where there is a group of fabulous National Trust houses to visit – Montacute, Barrington Court, Tintinhull and Lytes Cary. After a day out walking or sightseeing, why not wander over to the Monkton Inn for dinner and enjoy fresh local produce served with a South African twist?
