    About this property

    Why not treat your family to a break in Dunster and let Stables Cottage keep you all comfortable during your stay. Children will love the shared pool and outdoor chess.
    At the foot of Grabbist Hill (NT) in the Exmoor National Park, these four beautifully furnished and well-equipped Grade II listed cottages are set in the grounds of 16th century Ellicombe Manor. Clustered around a cobbled courtyard they enjoy shared use of an outdoor heated swimming pool, with its own walled area and poolside furniture, and an acre of magnificent sub tropical gardens and 3-acre paddock offering views over the West Somerset Steam Railway and across the Bristol Channel to the Welsh coast. The gardens are a special feature of Ellicombe Manor, filled with mature palm trees, named exotic plants and shrubs and quiet corners with seating. Here, too, visitors may discover the ‘secret garden’ or enjoy a game of outdoor chess or other outdoor games.
    A mile away, Dunster, with its famous castle, yarn market and pre Christmas candlelight shopping, offers a selection of pubs, shops, and restaurants. Minehead’s resort attractions, sandy beach and coastal path walks are also close by. Golf, river and lake fishing, horse riding and wonderful walking locally in Exmoor National Park and West Somerset Steam Railway weekends. One mile to the start of South West Coast Path.
    All on ground floor: Living/dining room with vaulted ceiling. Kitchen. 2 bedrooms: 1 double, step to 1 twin. Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet.

    "Dog friendly character cottage with use of lovely owner's garden and enclosed field from the door. Parking next to cottage. Peaceful location. A short walk up the road takes you off road and up to the top of Exmoor with stunning views, then turn left to drop down to Dunster. A short walk down the lane takes you to the old 'main' road and a level walk to the bottom of Dunster. Supermarkets and vet surgery the other side of the main road in Minehead."

    "Great place with excellent facilities and very welcoming hosts."

    "A very relaxing location. The owners were delightful, extremely helpful from the moment we arrived. The cottage itself was very comfortable and well equipped. The grounds were amazing as was the swimming pool. The local area was a treat, beautiful views and lots of hills to climb. The beach is just a short ride away although the best beach for walking dogs is a little further on at Blue Anchor Bay. A great week."
