    “Little Knaplock was really lovely, peaceful and so comfortable.”

    The only thing that spoiled it was receiving emails from Sykes Cottages whilst on holiday asking me to book my next holiday with them! Thank you Richard and Helen ☺️

The property

Combwich 2.1 miles.

Tucked away in the hamlet of Coultings near Combwich in West Somerset, is this spacious studio-style first-floor apartment, Little Knaplock.

Enjoying a prime position with easy access to the stunning Quantock Hills AONB, the wildlife rich surroundings of Somerset Levels and Steart Marshes, the coast and further afield, Exmoor National Park, Little Knaplock is a fantastic base for couples seeking ample walking and cycling opportunities in Somerset.

Leave your vehicle in the car port which features an electric charging point, as well as a handy sink.

Enter the property through your own private entrance, where you can safely store bikes, fishing and beach gear and your coats and shoes after your journey!

Be welcomed into the open-plan living space, featuring a dishwasher and beautiful countryside views from its bi-fold doors, where you can look forward to whipping up flavourful meals ready to enjoy at the dining table for two over a bottle of wine.

If the weather is nice, why not fire up the barbecue out on the decked balcony and savour your meal with breath-taking views of the open countryside?

After dinner, relax on the sofa with your favourite tipple as you select a much-loved film from the large TV as the evening’s entertainment.

After a day of hiking through the Quantocks or cycling along the coast, wash away the day with a hot shower in the contemporary shower room.

When sleep calls, catch your rest in the sumptuous king-size bed with zip/link, ahead of another adventure filled day.

For your local amenities, head over to the riverside village of Combwich, where you can treat your loved one to a meal at the welcoming Combwich Anchor, followed by a leisurely stroll along the River Parrett, or stock up on essentials at the Post Office housing a shop.

Next stop is Cannington, where you can test out your swing at the excellent Cannington Golf Course, brush up on your riding skills at the Cannington Equestrian Centre or sample a sweet treat at The Walled Gardens of Cannington & Tea Room.

Pop on your walking boots or grab your bike and set off into the captivating surroundings of the Quantock Hills AONB, where you can wander the expansive woodlands at Ramscombe Great Wood and Hawkridge Woods and its reservoir, soak up views of the coast along the Kilve and East Quatoxhead or admire the serene surrounding of the bluebells on Cothelstone Hill.

If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, why not hike up Wills Neck, the highest summit on the Quatock Hills for incomparable views over the surrounding towns and villages?

Be sure to check out the popular National Trust site of Fyne Court, a lush arboretum with wild gardens.

Continue on to Watchet, where you can watch the boats come in at the picturesque harbour and delve into local history at the Watchet Boat Museum.

Be sure to check out Dunster, home to the National Trust site of Dunster Castle and Watermill, or head to Minehead where you can hop aboard the West Somerset Railway over to Blue Anchor Beach where you can hunt for fossils, or further along to Williton.

All this and more awaits Little Knaplock.
