Wiveliscombe, Exmoor Cottages
The Studio is located in the pretty, rolling countryside between Exmoor and the Quantock Hills, one mile from the small town of Wiveliscombe. The property lies on a quiet lane and looks out across a large lawn with long views southwards over fields beyond, bounded by a stream. The Studio forms a wing of the main farmhouse but has a separate driveway and entrance. Inside, the owners have created a very attractive space with a galley kitchen, a large, light living room with sitting, eating and sleeping areas and a modern shower room while outside the garden is exceptionally large. Altogether The Studio provides a very welcoming and comfortable base from which to explore this unspoilt part of West Somerset.
Entrance from front of building into small lobby and galley kitchen with table-top electric cooker (2 rings, oven, and grill).
Main room with large futon sofa for alternative sleeping,
Bedroom with double bed (4ft 6) and dining table.
Separate shower room/wc.
Patio and large lawned area extending down into a field and affording long restful views across rolling countryside. Delightfully cosy summerhouse just beyond the studio which is perfect for relaxing and admiring the views, or even as an alternative place to eat.
Well-behaved dogs welcome (NB the owners have their own dog). No smoking. Pubs and shops 1 mile away.
The location is perfect for exploring this interesting region which is criss-crossed by tranquil footpaths and cycle routes and yet is within 20 minutes from the M5 at Wellington ,just after the exit for Taunton. Wiveliscombe is a thriving market town with great pubs and indpendent shops. The town is situated in the Brendon Hills a few miles from the south eastern edge of Exmoor National Park. Well worth a visit is Wimbleball Lake, Dunkery Beacon , Dunster and its Castle and for steam entusiasts, the West Somerset Railway which runs between Minehead and Bishops Lydiard.
"We had a 5 night stay at this immaculate cottage and loved every minute of it! The owners were lovely and the location was stunning, a perfect view in a peaceful location. The local town was only a 20 minute walk through fields and footpaths and the location was perfectly placed for our days out. Our dog absolutely loved running around in the huge field and we were all made to feel extremely welcome. We will definitely be returning very soon!"Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2017-05-05
"We were very delighted to have been able to rent the Studio, Lower Grants in July and August 2016. It is a very clean and well maintained little cottage, with pretty surroundings (hills with sheep) and charming views. The owners are very nice and friendly people. The cottage is well equiped with a kitchinette to enable you to cook. We do recommend this cottage to anyone who wants to spend a restful and peaceful countryside holiday."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2017-01-30
"The Studio has fresh new facilities and a wonderful outlook. It is off the beaten track. Our prerequisite was to make sure a decent local pub was nearby and Wiveliscombe did not disappoint on that either. The Studio is a decent 20 mins walk down country lanes to the pubs and shops. So if you want a bolt hole hideaway for a weekend or a week, then I'm sure you will be happy here."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2016-07-01
