The Coach House is a single story chocolate box period thatched detached cottage which is full of charm and character. This self-catering cottage is ideal for those quiet weekend getaways for 2, wanting to enjoy the tranquility and beauty of the Quantocks and Exmoor.

From the living area this leads you to two low level doorways leading you to the double bedroom and dressing room. The farmhouse-style kitchen and dining area, which is one step up leading off the lounge area also has dark slate flooring and is fully equipped with all the home comforts you need to make it a comfortable stay.
