    About this property

    Ignite their imaginations by showing your children the secret garden that is hidden in the grounds that Grooms Cottage shares.
    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.
    Ground floor: Living/dining room with beams. Kitchen with breakfast area. First floor: 2 double bedrooms. Shower room with toilet. Z-bed available (for alternative sleeping).
    Doggy extras. Cobbled courtyard and furniture.

    "Great, good value for money, beautiful location, fantastic base to explore the region and all its wonders."

    "Would go again very enjoyable owners very pleasant and very helpful"

    "The cottage could have been delightful, but I found it cold, uninviting and lacking in style. Simple changes such as cushions in the lounge, light bulbs that don't show above the lampshades, curtains on curtain poles that don't look shabby and basically a little more "love" put into the cottage. A frying pan would have been good too! Who doesn't like a fried breakfast? The gardens however were an absolute delight. One further issue that I had was that I spoke to the "lord" of the manner on a couple of occasions and found him quite rude. The "lady" of the manner was more affable, but, for me, I won't be returning. :("

    "Lovely cottage in a great location. The grounds are beautiful and the exercise field was much appreciated and loved by our dog. We were lucky enough to be able to make use of the heated outdoor pool which was an added bonus. The owners gave us plenty of walking advise and even provided us with binoculars to view the red deer on Exmoor at dusk - brilliant. Would definitely recommend and return to this cottage."
