If you were looking for cottages like Lark Rise, how about trying these:

This stunning detached house sits high in the Quantock Hills, with panoramic views along the north Somerset coast and truly excellent walking literally on the doorstep and is a few miles from the beach at Kilve. Follow the Coleridge Way footpath, explore ancient woodland, and watch grazing deer at dusk and dawn. Lark Rise is spacious and light-filled with a wood-burner in the open plan living-room – a couple of steps down from the sociable kitchen-area. There are four bedrooms on this level and the fifth enjoys its own suite on the lower ground floor. Discover the inner courtyard with its cedar bath and little pond. Floor to ceiling glass doors open onto a huge decking-area, with views right across the Bristol Channel to Wales, and steps lead to the gardens where there is something special at every turn – a Japanese garden-house with a water garden just in front and a games-room with a snooker table and darts board set in sloping woodland. This property is reached along an incredible mile long woodland track – unmade and with two sharp bends, but with plenty of passing spaces, and all part of the whole experience of staying in this unique and tranquil location.
