Woodlands - Langford Budville, Somerset/Devon Borders, Somerset, England - Sleeps 6


Woodlands is situated on the site of a small holding/garden nursery within the lovely Vale of Taunton Deane on the Somerset/Devon border. Adjoining the nature reserve and with a private HOT TUB in a gazebo, this is the perfect place to relax and unwind!

Located just outside the village of Langford Budville in open countryside and within walking distance of the pub, this delightful holiday cottage benefits from panoramic views to the Blackdown Hills and Wellington Monument.

The cottage provides a good base for exploring the many attractions that Somerset and Devon have to offer and it is an excellent location for a relaxing holiday. There are walks/cycle rides directly from the front door out onto a one hundred and eighty acre nature reserve which is a mixture of heathland and mature deciduous woodlands (which are beautiful in the spring when the snowdrops and primroses are in bloom), crisscrossed with rambling paths and country lanes. Alternatively, explore the Quantocks and Exmoor by horse back.

Open all year, this is a great place to relax and chill out with the cottage providing warm comfortable accommodation where you can escape from crowds, noise and the general chaos of modern life.

Only five miles from the M5 (junction 26) and midway between the north and south coasts, Woodlands offers the best of both worlds - it provides you with a peaceful environment where you can unwind and relax, with the added benefit of being within easy access to the many tourist attractions the area has to offer. It is only nine miles from Taunton, three miles from Wellington and twenty six miles from Exeter.

The village pub in Langford Budville is within walking distance and offers good food and lovely open fires and there are other good eating pubs nearby.

Children are made very welcome and there is plenty to keep them occupied with toys and a play area with swings, games, slides, climbing frame, see-saw and plenty of space to play. A cot and high chair can be provided if required.

For the adults you can relax on the sun loungers, enjoy a BBQ and alfresco dining or relax in the hot tub which is located in a gazebo in the cottage garden and seats six people.
