    “We really enjoyed our stay at Spaniel Cottage lots of nice places to visit and explore.”

    As regards the cottage its self the two piece suite was very uncomfortable, everything else was fine. One problem however was exiting onto the very busy main road (A39), especially from the drivers side. Trevor.

The property

Resting in the peaceful village of Carhampton in Somerset, Spaniel Cottage is the perfect location for a coast or countryside getaway.

With parking for up to two cars, the cottage is a short drive or longer stroll away from the beach and with plenty of home comforts, makes a wonderful choice for families, friends, or couples looking for a tranquil escape.

After finding the off-road parking, prepare to step into your new home away from home.

Through the front door, you will find a welcoming open-plan space that will be sure to delight all who enter.

The warmth of the woodburning stove will keep you toasty on chilly winter nights, while the AGA in the corner of the room will be sure to inspire the chef of the group to create something special.

Outside to the back there is a small contained courtyard with views to the deer park and Exmoor, which is perfect for enjoying the peace and evening sun.

To the front is a small garden with a patio area where you can enjoy the daytime sun, or a summerhouse for relaxing outside whatever the weather.

As the night draws in, make your way upstairs to the two bedrooms, a double and a twin, followed by a sleek shower room for those freshening up after a long day.

Explore the village of Carhampton, where you will find a traditional pub for dining out.

Take a leisurely stroll through this quiet village and admire the local architecture, or go further afield to the Blue Anchor Beach and breathe in the sea air.

Venture to Dunster towards the nearby coastal town of Minehead, where you can discover the 17th-century Dunster Castle and wander around its picturesque grounds, or shop to your heart’s content in the historic High Street.

A holiday to Spaniel Cottage is perfect any time of year.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location


Dunster 1.6 miles; Minehead 4 miles.

Carhampton is an attractive village close to the Exmoor National Park, with a church, pub, village store, community orchard and Post Office. There are lovely walks from the village, over the deer park to Dunster, and through farmland to the beach. The village is less than 4 miles from the popular seaside resort of Minehead, which occupies a wonderful sheltered spot beneath the dramatic North Hill, on the lovely West Somerset coast. This welcoming town boasts a mile-long esplanade, providing a wonderful backdrop to the golden beach, whilst the pretty harbour, visited in the summer by the famous paddle steamer Waverley, offers excellent fishing opportunities. Enjoy a nostalgic steam train journey from the seafront on the West Somerset Railway, or visit Blenheim Gardens, winner of many awards for its beautiful floral displays. Renowned for the largest herd of red deer in England, Exmoor National Park with its wooded valleys, pretty bridle paths and heather-clad moors, is well worth a visit, whilst the magnificent Norman Castle at nearby Dunster is a must.
