Le logement

This delightful and unique octagonal house, formerly an 18th century smallholder's cottage, nestles in an idyllic and peaceful setting by a bubbling stream and a wonderful waterfall in a wooded combe in the heart of the Quantock hills. It is surrounded by it’s own garden and National Trust land, with endless miles of walks amongst ancient oak and beech trees and on the heathland, with its ponies, sheep and red deer. Reached via an unmade track and over a footbridge, it doesn’t get much more rural than this, and makes for a perfect holiday hideaway. Superb for mountain biking, bird watching and walking, it really is a little slice of heaven, and from our experience, once visited most people book their return.
 
Shop 1½ miles, pub within walking distance. 2 miles away is the fossil rich coast at Kilve. 
 
Spacious living room, overlooking waterfall, with wood-burning stove set in an inglenook fireplace. Fitted kitchen/dining room, adjoining bathroom with toilet. One step to a double bedroom with king size bed. Twin bedroom (with trundle bed under, making it a triple) with en-suite shower room and toilet. Both bedrooms have luxury Egyptian cotton linen and towels, robes and slippers. Bedrooms have interconnecting doors.

Accès des voyageurs

We are new to airbnb and currently let our cottage through other agencies, here are what a few of our guests have said about their stay…

Fran from Middlesex (Family)
Absolutely wonderful weekend. Charming cottage in beautiful surroundings. A real retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life. A place one can hang up the car keys for several days and just walk and enjoy the wildlife and countryside.

This is a fabulous place to stay. Deep in the Somerset Combes with deer on your doorstep.
Kate made us so welcome and it's a great spot to have a dog as the walks were straight from the house out into the country. Great attention to detail beds pillows and duvets all super comfortable. We heard owls calling to each other and watched a woodpecker on the bird feeder right by the kitchen window.

Very warm welcome, stunning position amid tree lined valley with stream, waterfall and lovely countryside. Access is uneven and could present a challenge to anyone unsure on their feet in wet weather. Fantastic holiday!

A delightful cottage in a spectacular setting. The owners have presented the cottage extremely thoughtfully. Little touches life bath robes and slippers, scones with jam & cream, and bottle of wine made our stay all the more enjoyable.
We will return.

Gail from North Lincolnshire (Couple)
Myself, husband and border collie spent a very happy week in this cottage in September. The welcome pack was very generous and thoughtful and the owners, Kate and Dave, friendly and helpful. The cottage was well equipped, beautifully clean with lovely white linen and towels and really well presented. It is in its own garden, with a stream and waterfall running past the twin bedroom. The property is a unique hexagonal shape and you can walk in a circle from the hall, through the lounge, then the twin bedroom, into the double bedroom, through the bathroom, into the kitchen and back into the hall. Of course all have solid doors and all the rooms are a good size. The twin room has its own ensuite shower room.

You drive down a single track road to the property, which has an area next to the stream for parking, and access to the Roundhouse is over a little foot bridge. The single track road is also a public right of way up to the Quantock Hills. Its a beautiful walk alongside the stream, through woodland and up into the hills which are covered in heather, yellow gorse and fern with grazing sheep. We did two different circular walks from the roundhouse.

Not only did we see red deer wandering past from the kitchen window, but bluetits, chaffinches and a very tame squirrel feed from the bird feeder, and also on our walk through the wood I saw my very first kingfisher - a flash of vivid turquoise.

Downside? There is absolutely no mobile or internet signal at the cottage as it is in a hollow. We have O2 and EE and neither would work, but having said that, if you want a peaceful, relaxing "away from it" all holiday, this is the place, and in an emergency, Kate and Dave the owners and nearby neighbours would be there to help as they do have services.

I would recommend this cottage to anyone, and would love to return again.

Theresa from Northampton (Family)
Myself, mother, sister and my black Labrador spent a wonderful few days at The Roundhouse. What an absolute joy!! We knew as soon as we arrived we were going to feel right at home and weren't disappointed. From the scrumptious welcome pack to the idyllic location and beautiful cottage we couldn't have asked for more. Our hosts were delightful, as was the wonderful array of birds, wildlife and glorious scenery we were surrounded by. Fabulous walks literally on the doorstep or further afield if you wanted a drive out. We had a libation each day at the local pub, a short stroll away from the cottage, picking up freshly laid eggs which were on sale outside various cottages. We were lucky enough to see the Dipper too!! We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and hope to do so next year. It truly is a real gem.

The Round House is in a perfect location. There is a stream adjoining the garden and to access the cottage you have to walk over a small bridge. The woods are next to the stream and there are miles of woodland walks right on your doorstep.Inside, the cottage has been renovated to a very high standard. A atmosphere of luxury has been created, whilst at the same time retaining all the character of an old property.

The Round House is a truly magical place in great surroundings. The owners are really nice, on hand if you need anything but leave you to get on with your holiday. I understand that the house was refurbished in August and it's been done tastefully and to a high standard, the linen and towels are all of good quality and the place is spotless. Thank you very very much, we will be back!

Gorgeous location nestled right in the woods by a stream. Beautifully decorated, stylish, comfortable, well-equipped. Very helpful owner. If I would change anything, one bathroom doesn't have a shower, (only old fashioned bath with separate spouts for hot and cold water- even a combined spout would have been fine) and the door to the bathroom didn't quite close properly. Overall though, an absolutely perfect country escape and would come back in a heartbeat.

The perfect hideaway in a stunning location tucked away from the world. The cottage was beautifully and stylishly decorated, well-equipped and spotlessly clean, surrounded by its own large garden and wonderful views from every window (and there are lots due to the hexagonal shape of the cottage). The owners were lovely and had also provided a basket of goodies for us on arrival. Our children aged 5 and 9 loved it too. There are lots of walks from right outside the cottage and a shallow brook twisting through the woods perfect for paddling and dam building. Would definitely visit again

The Round House is extremely comfortable, clean, well-equipped and every attention to detail has been thought of by Kate. The garden was immaculately tended and the property's situation is truly breathtakingly beautiful and tranquil apart from the sounds of the waterfall and birdsong. Amazing walks from the door step and minutes in the car to the coastal path. Highly recommend the hosts, the accommodation and the location.

Our first impression of the Roundhouse was sheer delight. It was like a secret cottage in the woods. The cottage well equipped and very comfortable. We only stayed for 3 nights and didn't want to leave. We cooked Sunday lunch and everything we needed was there. The finish is to a high standard and many of the little things provided like bathrobes, fluffy towels and lovely cotton sheets were really appreciated as was the welcome tea and scones and a bottle of wine. The area is beautiful particularly for walking.

The Roundhouse is amazing and a perfect tranquil break from the city, which is just what we needed. Kate takes pride in her property and everything was spotless and in modern style and taste. The house is located in an amazing part of Holford, Somerset with incredible views and wildlife to keep you company! A cream tea is also provided on your arrival. Would definitley visit again!

What a wonderful cottage in a stunning location with lots of thoughtful homely touches. Lovely and welcoming hosts. Highly recommended for a relaxing break, or an energetic walking or mountain biking holiday. Beautiful scenery in the surrounding area close by and slightly further afield on Exmoor. We will definitely visit again!!
