About The Little Stable

The Little Stable is what it says on the tin and sits on a small estate in the beautiful Somerset countryside. There are lots of extra special touches and the cottage feels wonderfully intimate for a romantic couple’s break. It is only two miles from Yeovil and a short walk from the centre of East Coker, the village immortalised in TS Eliot’s poem Four Quartets, where you will find the excellent Helyar Arms, a Grade II listed 15th Century pub.

East Coker is at the geographic heart of Somerset. Within just a few miles are Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Blackdown Hills, Quantocks and Mendips. There is no better place for a holiday if you love exploring on foot or by bicycle, or even on horseback. Drive north, and you will reach the Somerset coast and beaches like Burnham on Sea, while heading south will take you to the stunning Jurassic Coast, which is a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Days out near The Little Stable can include a wander around the magnificent interior and grounds of Sherborne Castle, the latter of which were designed by renowned Georgian designer, Capability Brown. Somerset’s stunning countryside is more than simply a nice view - it also creates delicious cider, perry, pork and cheese, and Perry’s Cider Mills and the award-winning Lord Poulett pub are just two of several places nearby where you can sample them.

The Fleet Air Museum, Bovington Tank Museum and Haynes Motor Museum have some of the best specialist collections in England, and if engines are your thing then make sure you include the Yeovil Railway Centre on your itinerary. Wookey Hole Caves are a favourite all-weather attraction, while Taunton is good for shopping, as is Clarks Village in Street.

The Little Stable is a welcoming retreat, in a location that is away from it all without being remote or hard to reach. When people say you can’t have your cake and eat it, it is safe to assume that they have not stayed here!

Please note there is restricted headroom in the bedroom as it is in the eaves.
