NOW FULLY BOOKED FOR JULY, AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER 2020. Each solid wood log cabin is encircled by trees for your privacy yet open enough to let sunlight through. We aim to give you that cosy, romantic log cabin retreat experience with a solid wood burner, private hot tub and free access to our seasonal outdoor heated pool (end May - Sept). If the dates you require are already booked, please look at our other cabins: Tawny Owl Lodge (also with private hot tub), Hedgehog Lodge or Roe Deer Lodge.
“Really cosy and romantic cabin with plenty of space. We stayed in woodpecker lodge with a hot tub for three nights. For our first night we only had one neighbour but thankfully the hot tub is mostly covered by a wooden screen - the hot tub next door was the other side of some bushes and we could hear the others but it didn’t disturb us. Access to the hot tub was a little chilly as you can’t go from the cabin door down the steps to it, there’s a wooden ramp before hand but once you’re in the tub it’s lovely. The shop was shut when we went to visit for more drinks or kindling (you get enough for 1 fire) but we sent a message and they opened up quickly for us. We were given detailed maps and some recommendations of where to go and what to see. We did the pooh sticks walk which was about 3 miles in total and had some nice views. The amenities were clean but the crockery and cutlery was all poorly washed so we had to clean things as we used them - that’s most likely the fault of previous occupants though and not necessarily the hosts. All in all a positive experience, it was a relaxing, charming atmosphere and comfortable.”
Located on the outskirts of Chard, the property is ideally located to explore Somerset and surrounding areas. Newly furnished and decorated to a very high standard for you to enjoy, The Annex adjoins our home and has a private front door. There is a king sized bed and a double sofa bed suitable for 2 children or 1 adult. There is a kitchen area with fridge, dishwasher, tea/coffee and toast making equipment and a multi-function microwave. There is ample off-road parking.
“Having recently sold our touring caravan, this was our first experience of Airbnb and Mary has set the bar very high. Mary was quick to respond to our communication before our stay and we were impressed by the Annex, with the food & drinks a real bonus.”
Apple Cottage is an 18th century converted Barn. It is semi detached, and sleeps 2. It has a fully equipped kitchen and is totally self contained. Good to hide away or return to after a day of exploration.
“We arrived to a very friendly welcome by Carmen and also found 4 freshly laid eggs on the kitchen table! Apple Cottage was all we had hoped for and all the pictures on the website promised. The decor suits the cottage perfectly and gives it a very cozy and friendly feel. The position of the cottage itself is very secluded within the small holding, with plenty of parking, and its location made it easy to access the sea side within half an hour's drive or to explore further inland. W had a lovely holiday and would definitely recommend it to anyone!”
