    “I had a wonderful week at Athelney Cottage.”

    It was spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated with high spec fittings and extremely comfortable. It's clear the owner has put alot of thought into providing a great holiday experience. I loved being so close to the river in such a historic beautiful area. Thank you for a fantastic stay.

North Curry 3.1 miles.

Athelney Cottage is a fabulous, reverse-level home nestled in the tranquil village of Athelney near North Curry, Somerset.

With a riverside position, enjoying stunning views of the surrounding countryside, Athelney Cottage offers a pet-friendly, well-positioned abode, ideal for couples and small groups.

Park up opposite the cottage and head indoors, firstly reaching a utility area, where you can store your muddy boots and wet gear.

Next door to the utility you’ll locate a sleek shower room, where you can prepare for your coming days in style, whilst a lovely king-size bedroom rests nearby, with plenty of storage, a Smart TV, and an indulgent roll-top bath.

Travel upstairs to reach the open-plan living space, complete with a large sofa bed for flexibility, a dedicated dining area, and a well-equipped kitchen, where you can prepare and enjoy delicious meals over a glass of wine.

With breath-taking, elevated views to appreciate, while the night away from the mezzanine snug, or if the weather allows, dine, and unwind upon the rear decked area, with direct access to the river; be sure to pack your watersports gear and equipment to enjoy a day on the water.

Explore the nearby village of North Curry, home to a selection of shops, eateries and pubs for delicious food and drinks after a day of walking, cycling and bird watching, or head to nearby Taunton, Somerset’s County town, where you can find an array of high-street shops, independent boutiques, restaurants, pubs, and cafes, along with Museum of Somerset, French Weir Park, and several galleries.

If you’d like to explore some more, visit Bridgwater, an ancient riverside town with a wealth of attractions including the Blake Museum and the Blake Gardens, or wildlife spot from the likes of RSPB Greylake, RSPB Swell Wood, and Millennium Wood.

For a truly magical experience, venture further to the mythical Glastonbury, known for its grand abbey, Tor and Chalice Well, the ancient ruins of St. Michael’s Tower and a range of festivals, events, and attractions.

Athelney Cottage is the perfect base to explore all the wonders of Somerset.

About the location


Taunton 7.9 miles; Bridgwater 10.7 miles; Glastonbury 18 miles; Lyme Regis 26.7 miles; Weston-super-Mare 29 miles; M5 (junction 25) 5.6 miles.

Enjoying a central position between the north and south coasts of the South West peninsula, the small village of North Curry rests in Somerset, just east of the county town of Taunton. Since the 13th century, North Curry has been a market village, earning wealth from hunting, fishing and the wool trade, and it is still home to several historic buildings like the Church of St Peter and St Paul, nicknamed 'The Cathedral of the Moors', now a Grade I listed building dating from the 14th century. In the centre of the village on Queen Square you can find the Post Office and general village store where you can pick up all the essentials you need, with a pub across the way providing a perfect spot to enjoy a well-earned pint. Visit Taunton for a wider selection of shops and restaurants. Enjoy watching cricket on the village green, or at Somerset’s famous County Ground. Take a steam train ride to the seaside on the West Somerset Railway. Explore the myth and magic of King Arthur at Glastonbury’s Abbey and Tor. Shop till you drop at Clarks Village. Spend a day in Lyme Regis, 'The Pearl of Dorset' on the Jurassic Coast. Head north to the Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for walking and cycling routes in this unspoilt area, or south to the Blackdown Hills AONB. Venture westwards for day trips to the rugged coasts, surfing beaches, fishing villages and moorlands of Devon and Cornwall. Relax and unwind in the Georgian splendour of Bath, with its Roman spa. North Curry is a delightful place to settle for a Somerset sojourn.
