    • “Beautiful cottage in a very good location close to Devon borders so we had best of both the worlds. Our dogs loved the large garden! Our bed was very comfortable. Overall a great stay and we would gladly come again and again!! Couple of minor suggestions, which are not essential but could make a difference to some: 1) It would be nice to have a fence next to the shed in the orchard area so the dogs could still enjoy the orchard area. Our dogs escaped accidentally and we had to chase after them. They are greyhounds. 2) please don’t dilute the washing up liquid, it looks cheap and it’s not economical either. 3) consider having a swing from the big tree in the garden, kids would love it!”

    Dr Nosina, Bedford, August 2018

    • “Our third visit to Alice Cottage. The tidiness of the garden is much improved and being dog escape-proof is very helpful. Excellent dog walking from the cottage. The only adverse comment would be that a tray with some cups, teapot, teabags etc laid out would be nice after a long journey. Most holiday cottages offer this, and more. Miles Garnett”

    Mr Garnett, Northallerton, May 2018

    • “Lovely cottage, with all that you need for a peaceful holiday. Great garden and the location was brilliant for both short and long walks”

The Property

A mile from Minehead and next to a ford below high heather-topped and wooded hills (sea views, fantastic for ramblers), on a tiny lane that meanders down the hill into the hamlet of Bratton, a pretty, detached, thatched cottage. At the back, a very private, enclosed, tranquil garden (fenced wildlife pond, table/chairs, cottage planting) with plenty of lawn. From the parking space, path over little bridge to back door and step down to kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker). Step down to good-sized living/dining room with woodburner and TV/DVD. Lobby with door to lane. Two bedrooms - a pretty, good-sized double (5' bed) with curved walls, stained glass windows and limited clothes-hanging space, and a neat single. Three steps down to smart bathroom (suite with separate shower, step down to bath cosily under the eaves). Outside loo (washing machine). A really special, fun and comfortable place to stay at any time of year, particularly for couples or young families.

Bratton: farming hamlet below the A39 Minehead to Porlock road and on the edge of the beautiful Vale of Porlock. Minehead (Exmoor’s seaside resort, sandy beach, harbour, golf, tennis, swimming pool), 1½ miles; Selworthy (pretty Nat. Trust village) and Selworthy Beacon (one of the highest points on Exmoor, terrific views), 2 miles; Porlock, 4.

Regional Information

BRATTON Westbury 2.5 miles; Trowbridge 5 miles; Bath 17.5 miles A delightful, Iron Age village set in the centre of a triangle of AONB's; the Cotswolds, the North Wessex Downs and Cranborne Chase, in Wiltshire. Bratton boasts an incredible history including the Bratton Camp hill fort and three Grade II* listed buildings to admire. As well as this, the nearby scenic Bratton Downs are an SSSI and are certainly worth a walk with your dogs. In terms of amenities, the village provides a pub, a shop and a Post Office for your convenience. Bratton is perfectly located for ramblers, cyclists or wildlife lovers as there is so much countryside and open space around.
