About Cider Cottage

Cider Cottage is the perfect rural retreat for a holiday in the country to recharge and relax. This lovely cottage sits in stunning Somerset countryside by the Quantock Hills National Landscape. It feels peacefully rural and remote, yet is easy to reach from the A303 and M5 and is only eight miles from Taunton. The Farmers Arms is within walking distance one mile away. It has spacious accommodation and a light and airy king-sized mezzanine bedroom that makes the most of the rural views.

Somerset has spectacular countryside, beautiful beaches, friendly villages and vibrant market towns. The Quantock Hills attract walkers, horse riders and mountain bikers who appreciate the incredible views towards the coast and Bristol Channel. Exmoor National Park is only ten miles away, giving guests even more opportunity to enjoy being outdoors.

Taunton is a lively market town with a wealth of independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. Some popular attractions include the Museum of Somerset, the County Cricket Ground and Taunton Motor Museum. Sheppy’s Cider House runs brewery tours and has a good farm shop selling their own produce and food from other local suppliers. If you want to enjoy a day at the beach, Minehead is a popular traditional coastal resort with lots to see and do, including the West Somerset Steam Railway. Other local attractions include Dunster Castle and Dunster village, picturesque Porlock Weir, Taunton Racecourse and National Trust Fyne Court, while Glastonbury, Wells Cathedral and Wookey Hole Caves are all within an hour's easy drive.

Reflexology treatments are available. Redlands Reflexology has a treatment room onsite offering foot or facial reflexology. For further information visit Redlands Reflexology website.

Cider Cottage is a great holiday destination for walking and enjoying nature. Please visit our website for more ideas on places to visit and some suggestions for great local places to eat.

Location (Somerset)

Accommodation Comprises:

The accommodation at Cider Cottage is spread over two floors with the living area being on the ground floor and the double bedroom on a mezzanine level. It has been skillfully converted from a former cider house and has thick stone walls and exposed beams.

Ground Floor:

  • Downstairs is open plan. The entire house is decorated in neutral shades that allow the natural wood beams, doors and window sills to stand out as a stylish focal point.
  • There are two comfortable armchairs and a leather sofa, as well as a dining table with four chairs. Floor to ceiling windows frame the view of the mature gardens which are bursting with flowers in spring and summer, and allow natural light to flood in.
  • The fitted kitchen has a dishwasher, microwave, oven and hob, and large fridge/freezer, as well as plenty of cooking utensils and crockery.
  • A utility room with a washing machine, sink and WC is accessed via the entrance lobby.


  • Stairs lead from the ground floor to the mezzanine level, which encompasses half the building. The multi-aspect bedroom has a skylight and views over the garden, along with a high ceiling and exposed beams. It is furnished with a king-sized bed, bedside tables and a dressing table.
  • A walk-in wardrobe provides further storage and there is an en-suite where there is a shower room, WC and hand basin.

Outside: The garden of Cider Cottage is utterly charming, especially in spring when clumps of daffodils dot the grounds. There are two seating areas, a stream, and a paved patio with barbecue, table and chairs. There is off-street parking and a EV car charger* next to the cottage.

Additional Information: The cottage has central heating and WiFi. All utilities, bedding and towels are included. Short breaks are possible outside of high season, depending on the availability. * EV car charger available at cost using Bookmycharge App or website.
