Somerset Self-Catering Accommodation with an Open Fire

Wander through frost-tinged countryside and marvel at Somerset's wild landscapes. Head to the beach and revel in the peaceful solitude that comes with this wintry time of year. Explore and soak in the sights, and then give way and return to your own slice of paradise. A luxurious open-fire cottage provides a greatly-received welcome after a day in the cool, crisp air. Read more

Winter is a magical time of year, bringing a peacefulness that can be experienced at no other time. Open roads, empty beaches, quiet footpaths and enchanting atmosphere are all but some of Somerset's wintry qualities, and there is much more to look forward to. But what better way to top off a day discovering this wintry paradise? Returning to your own private self-catering cottage where an open-fire awaits. 

Perfect for couples looking for quality time together, solo retreats, family holidays and getaways with the dog, our cottages with open fires or wood burners offer wide variety and consistent quality. Whatever you are looking for, we will help you find your favourite cottage. Or two. Or three. Some of our open-fire cottages even have hot tubs for that extra warming touch.
